Seattle is under siege.
An ancient ceremony known as “wolf manoth,” in which human hunters kill as many canidae as possible, has been revived. The hunters have arrived in force, focusing on the Pacific Northwest due to its high wolf population. Ariadne Willow, alerted to the danger by her mother, goes undercover with a group of hunters in an effort to minimize the damage. Unfortunately the hunters have a new weapon, a drug that brings out the feral side of any canidae exposed to it. With her safety and sanity both at risk, Ari is forced to trust a friend turned enemy in order to stay alive.
Meanwhile, Dale is cut off from her friend and partner and faces the wrath of drugged canidae and hunters who are eager to make an example of a human who has been consorting with a wolf. Chased through the city and forced to take refuge wherever she can get it, Dale receives help from unexpected corners.
Separated by circumstance and under attack from threats both human and wolf, Ari and Dale must do everything in their power to keep the body count down while also staying alive long enough to find each other again.
About the Author
Geonn Cannon was born in a barn and raised to know better than that. He was born and raised in Oklahoma where he’s been enslaved by a series of cats, dogs, two birds and one unexpected turtle. He’s spent his entire life creating stories but only became serious about it when he realized it was a talent that could impress girls. Learning to write well was easier than learning to juggle, so a career was underway. His high school years were spent writing stories among a small group of friends and reading whatever books he could get his hands on. Geonn was inspired to create the fictional Squire’s Isle after a 2004 trip to San Juan Island in Washington State. His first novel set on the island, On the Air, was written almost as a side project to another story he wanted to tell. Reception to the story was so strong that the original story was put on the back burner to deal with the world created in On the Air. His second novel set in the same universe, Gemini, was also very well received and went on to win the Golden Crown Literary Society Award for Best Novel, Dramatic/General Fiction. Geonn was the first male author to receive the honor. While some of his novels haven’t focused as heavily on Squire’s Isle, the vast majority of Geonn’s works take place in the same universe and have connections back to the island and its cast of characters (the exception being the Riley Parra series). In addition to writing more novels based on the inhabitants of Squire’s Isle, Geonn hopes to one day move to the real-life equivalent to inspire further stories. Geonn is currently working on a tie-in novel to the television series Stargate SG-1, and a script for a webseries version of Riley Parra.

FourStars A really exciting and conceivable novel. This book in the series, although it is a stand alone novel, concentrates on the heightening tensions between the canidae and the hunters. The canidae, the shiftshapers who transform into wolves, really are credible and this can only be explained by the brilliant way the author presents this intriguing novel. Although part are a little deja vu, there is enough new information added to keep the interest of the previous readers of this series, while explaining situations to new readers. I also enjoyed the continuing loving relationship between Ari and Dale while welcoming more information about Ari's family, which proved both fascinating and thought-provoking. The only point I would question was when Dale and Ari were separated Dale switched off her mobile as the battery was running low only to switch it back on again in the evening to see if there was any news from Ari, then left it on all night to see if Ari called her back. Did she misjudge the battery life? Mr Cannon is the master of leaving the reader wanting more and I for one can not wait until his next novel appears.

I enjoy the fact you can read these books as stand alones or out of order yet they always leave you wanting more. Dale and Ari are at it again and there is never a shortage of drama, twist, and suspense when these two come together. I truly enjoy reading this series and recommend it to anyone who enjoys shifter novels. Although its not your typical shifter it is much more believable.
