Silver is part of the Great North Pack. She’s a small wolf with a handicap, but she’s stronger than she looks. She loves being in wolf form and only turns into her human skin if she has no other choice. Silver’s pack consists of wolfs that can become human, but their animal form is their main one. When the moon is full all members of the pack change into wolves and give in to their wild side. When a half shifter, who can change at will, enters their territory Silver takes a dangerous chance. To rescue Tiberius she risks the wrath of her fellow wolves. There’s something about him that makes it impossible to stay away though, will Silver manage to save the situation? Tiberius has learned to suppress his wild side. He grew up with an abusive father who didn’t like the wolf part of his son. Now Tiberius is looking for protection. He’s injured and alone and completely at mercy of a pack of wolves that doesn’t like shifters. Silver decides to give him a chance though, will Tiberius find what he’s looking for with the small wolf? What will happen when his past catches up with him and his secrets are being found out, will she still stand by his side? The Last Wolf is an original story with a fantastic setting. I absolutely loved reading about the wilderness and enjoyed seeing Silver’s beloved home through her eyes. Even though Silver has some humanity, she’s mainly wolf and I loved how Maria Vale stays true to the animal side of her main character. Silver is used to fighting for herself and doesn’t easily give up. She’s exactly what Tiberius needs, someone who understands what it’s like to be broken and knows how to mend and repair. They aren’t perfect, they don’t always understand each other, but their feelings run deep and that makes their bond truly special. Maria Vale has created a terrific world filled with hierarchy, devotion and rituals. I really enjoyed reading about the Great North Pack and their customs and rules. Maria Vale always keeps in mind that her main characters are wild animals and that shows in her writing, it’s what I loved the most about The Last Wolf, it makes the story creative and unique. She constantly surprises and combines this with plenty of action and unconditional love. The Last Wolf has a spectacular ending, it's a great finale of a enchanting unusual story.

I highly recommend this book :) It is very detailed and has a lot going on in the beginning to bring the reader up to date on what alls going on in the story line. I love Ti and Silver, they have great chemistry together and the author did a wonderful job putting rheje emotions into the story. Riddled with action and romance.

I must admit, this is not what I was expecting but it got better as I was reading this great book. There is everything that you could want from a paranormal book. Romance, adventure, fights, heroism, and heroinism. There is always something to be said when a heroin gets to be the one to bring the hero out of his head and show him that he can be a part of the group without causing someone to get hurt which is what he feared the most. Which is exactly what happened in The Last Wolf by Maria Vale. Sil, or Quicksliver as she is known to her pack is crippled, but she doesn’t let that be the only thing that she is remembered for in her pack. She has worked with veterinarians and it came in handy the away that Tiberius came into the packs land after being attacked from many different attackers. It doesn’t always start out with love in the very beginning but somewhere along the line there is something that happens to make something click for the hero and heroin to make them both look at the other and go “Oh! You’re who I’m supposed to be with!”. It is always fun to watch that moment happen, and it makes every other moment where the reader is going HELLO! Just kiss already! Tiberius has been attacked by many different attackers and he is on the brink of death when he comes into the Great North Pack land, he was told to find this pack by his father. This specific pack. At first there is a lot of tension between Sil and Tiberius but that is to be expected see as how Tiberius treated Sil while she was helping him recover from the brink of death. It wasn’t just a one-sided deal where Sil was the only one helping Tiberius, but he helped her out during the times when she had to change by helping with her leg. It always seems to be the way that it happens. Something happens where someone believes that the other person has deceived the other and something happens to make them not trust one another but with this book it helped to bring them both closer together. With each page it helped bring the story line together even more. Maria Vale has such a way of bringing the reader into the story page by page and making them feel like they are a character within the book even if they are a background character. I give this book a four-star rating. I was given this book in exchange for my honest review.

For three days out of thirty, when the moon is full and her law is iron, the Great North Pack must be wild. If she returns to her Pack, the stranger will die. But if she stays… Silver Nilsdottir is at the bottom of her Pack’s social order, with little chance for a decent mate and a better life. Until the day a stranger stumbles into their territory, wounded and beaten, and Silver decides to risk everything on Tiberius Leveraux. But Tiberius isn’t all he seems, and in the fragile balance of the Pack and wild, he may tip the destiny of all wolves… Review: A very unique take on werewolves, where they are more in touch with their wolf selves and don't see themselves as humans. Shifters and humans are to be mistrusted. I liked how they are really more like a pack and in touch with nature and their environment. I really liked Silver, especially how she is perceived as the weakest in the pack, is really one of the strongest and smartest. Ti is good, but was not sure what to make of him for a bit of the book. Of course, he does not understand how the pack works because he is a shifter and grew up more human than wolf. There romance was a slow build and really it is more a secondary thing. There is a lot of action in the story, especially near the end as Ti's past comes back to haunt him and the pack. I would consider this story more Urban Fantasy with romantic elements, as I feel it really is a story about the characters growth. this is the first book in this new series and I am very curious to see where the series goes. 4Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the publisher.*

The Last Wolf is the first book in a new series by Maria Vale. Maria is a debut author and I am definitely a fan. She has designed a fresh and intricate new world surrounding the lore of werewolves and shapeshifters. It’s a great spin on these ancient creatures that have been depicted in so many ways throughout history. The story starts off in the 1600s and comes into 2018 where we see how the modern world affects how mystical creatures have altered their survival tactics. At the core of The Last Wolf, it’s an unlikely lovely story involving a werewolf named Silver and a shifter named Tiberius. However, there is a lot more to it than that. The book also focuses on tradition, trust, and betrayal as well as the concept of nature versus nurture. Silver grew up in the pack and fully accepts their traditions. She is not comfortable being in human form and has no clue how to maneuver in the human world. On the other hand, Tiberius is the exact opposite. He feels out of place when he comes to live with the pack for sanctuary and he is very much a human. It’s a simple case of how Tiberius was raised to shun the part of him that’s a werewolf because he is half-shifter/half-werewolf. Silver is the runt of her pack and is destined to always be at the bottom of the hierarchy although her lineage is that of werewolf royalty. Together, Silver and Tiberius embark on a journey of love and acceptance not only of each other but of all parts of their heritage. They truly complement each other. There is nothing about The Last Wolf that’s predictable or cliche. I was pleasantly surprised by all of the new concepts that the author introduced in this often told tale of the supernatural. I can’t say enough about how impressed I was with the writing and imagination that went into this book. I can’t wait for the next book. **Received a copy from the publisher and reviewed voluntarily.**

This is my first book by this author and what a fantastical imagination she has. This was so different from other PNR books that I have read and that was definitely refreshing. Not your typical PNR at all, in fact this was more a survival story than romance. Although more dark than I usually like at times, the story line kept me riveted an there was so much to absorb. I will be looking for the next in this series for sure.

Vale brings a paranormal were wolf tale that takes some unique paths. It is the battle between wolves and shifters. Political power struggles in the pack are explored. Silver is the niece of the alpha but because of her crippled leg she is forced to be a servant. When a wounded shifter Ti arrives the two mate and become a formidable team. Found some of the vocabulary used confusing but the story picked up and carried through to merit an enjoyable read. Dark action.

Silver Nilsdottir is a lone runt with a crippled leg, facing a life of endless submission in the Pack. Then Tiberius Leveraux stumbles wounded into their territory with a plea for protection. If Silver is to make a real place for herself, she must fight for Tiberius—her only chance at ever having a mate. And in the end, she is forced to shield all of them—the Pack, the land, and the man she loves—from ancient enemies. My Thoughts Just when thought had nothing left to experience as far as werewolf or shifter mythology read this particular tale and found out I was wrong. Their may be other series similar, have read several reviews pointing this out, but have not read them yet and am going on the assumption that if and when I do the differences will be enough to make it not matter to me anyway. What I loved was the way the world was set up as we start the story years in the past when the Pack was moved into the New World because humans had almost wiped werewolves out for the most part and starting over in uncharted territories was the only hope for future generations to survive and prosper. What I did not love was the way in which Silvers current Pack treated her, or any other one of the weaker wolves born into their ranks for that matter. I do understand about the strongest having a better chance of surviving but as she ultimately proved over and over even a crippled runt can not only survive but flourish if their will is strong enough. Luckily for Silver her life changes by a sheer whim of fate when a badly wounded strange male Shifter finds the Packs lair. Luck that at first seems so wonderful and holds great hope for both their futures, however if it seems to be good to be true it usually is. I enjoyed this foray into what turned out to be a unique story with quite a few darker moments that were unexpected and then lightened up just as unexpectedly. While it was a different look into the werewolf lifestyle there were many things that stayed true to what we all have heard many times over from other sources, books, movies and television shows that have been made popular over the years. Thankfully this first tale ended on a pretty positive note rather than not, although there were heartbreaking moments before it ended. [EArc from Netgalley]
