"I would highly recommend this book! Veronica Blade has out done herself and I am eager for the next installment in the Shapes of Autumn Series." -- Tifferz and Her Sisterz Book Reviewz
"This is a sweet series and I'll be (im)patiently waiting to find out what's going to happen next for Autumn and Zack." -- Suzanne of Paranormal Book Lover
"Veronica Blade is simply the Queen of YA paranormal romance!!!" -- April of Cafe of Dreams Book Reviews
NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHER: As with any Veronica Blade book, this is a ROMANCE NOVEL, meaning it's romance FIRST and everything else is secondary. Rated PG-13 for sexual situations and mild profanity.
THIS IS BOOK #2 IN THE SHAPES OF AUTUMN SERIES
Their forbidden love could cost them their lives...
Autumn's just learned she's a shape-shifter - something her parents should've told her long ago. Unless they adopted her and didn't know she wasn't human. Either way, learning the truth has the same outcome: her parents lied. Zack is the only one she can count on, but he's a werewolf and the king's decree forbids contact between the species, let alone love. Zack's planning to leave after graduation, but letting him go isn't an option. He's becoming more a part of her every day, a part she would fight for, give up everything for - even kill for. If she's not killed first.
If Zack's experience with his own kind has taught him anything, it's that werewolves can't be trusted. He'd rather die free than live in a pack under the rule of the werewolf king. So, instead of preparing for college like any other senior, he's planning to go on the run after graduation. Escaping won't be easy with the werewolves guarding him. But until that day comes, Zack knows he's endangering Autumn every moment he's around her. If it's this difficult staying away from her now, how hard will it be to leave her behind in just a few weeks?

When is 3rd book being released?
**This review Contains Spoilers** I received a copy of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This was a good book some questions were answered in this book that were left over from book 1. For example there was speculation about whether or not Autumns parents were human, well I always assumed that her parents were not human (in fact I think Autumn is a mixed species child) her parents were way too paranoid, they were definitely afraid of something. There was also speculation of what happened to Zack s father initially it was said he just didn't come home one day. Now Favianne told Autumn that he was attacked by a bear and no body was ever found. And that there were times over the years after the attack when she thought she saw him. I felt like it was strange that Autumn never told Zack especially at the end of the book when she figured out that Renzo is probably Zack's dad, I couldn't figure out why she would dismiss all of these things as nothing especially with all the questions about her own parents. The natural thing to do would be to tell Zack the things that she learned and then they would have investigated it together. It was also strange to me how Autumns parents basically abandoned her that seems suspicious as well as unnatural to me as well. I kind of felt like the story's natural progression was stunted because the author wanted to keep a few tricks for the next book Aside from this The story was very good and I enjoyed reading it, I feel the author did much better with this book than the last one the story flowed very nicely from beginning to end and there was absolutely no boring parts There lots of emotional twist between Zack and Autumn. Gina's scheming against Autumn once again. And Zack and Autumn are investigating Autumns parents. I'm looking forward to book three.
I am so happy to report that Wolves At The Door, the second book in the Shapes of Autumn series is just as, if not more, exciting as the first book, My Wolf's Bane. I loved the first book because it was paranormal mixed with thrilling mixed with romance. I enjoy all three separately but I adore when all three are found together in one book. When it comes to Wolves At The Door though, there was even more paranormal, even more thrilling moments, and even more romance which made me over-the-moon ecstatic. I was a bit worried going into this that I wouldn't remember all of the details from the first book considering it has been nearly a year since I read it. I was only a few pages into this story when I realized I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Not only does Veronica do a pretty great job of catching people up on the story, but she does it in a way that doesn't make it seem like a history lesson. I loved reading certain passages and being like, "Yes! I remember that from My Wolf's Bane!" One of my favorite parts about this story and probably part of the reason I was able to catch up on the story so fast, is that it picked up almost exactly where it left off. Like mere seconds, minutes, perhaps hours, after the last book ended. It caused for a seamless flow between one story and another and I really appreciated that. There were no black holes in the story of these characters! Since the story started from where the last one left off, that meant for the first time I got to experience Zack and Autumn together. As an actual couple! I absolutely adore these two characters separately AND together. They are both so realistic despite their werewolf/shape-shifting tendencies and I couldn't help but get sucked right back into their relationship. Autumn is this strong, opinionated girl but at the same time she had moments she is scared and insecure (I mean hello I would be too if I found out I was a shape-shifter and my boyfriend was a werewolf!). This made her seem that much more real to me. As for Zack, he is about as swoon-worthy as they come. He is just as scared and confused as Autumn, considering their relationship is wrong on so many levels in the shape-shifting community and he is also dealing with an ailing mother, but despite all of that, he is Autumn's rock. He stays strong when she begins to crumble and he pushes her to be her best. Like I said, totally swoon-worthy. Now I can't say much as far as plot is concerned because I just don't want to give too much away, but it is so full of twists and turns that all left me flipping through the pages. In a manner much like the previous book, as soon as it answered one question (or I think it answered one question), ten more would pop up. I felt like I learned a lot more or at least thought of a number of theories concerning the many mysteries surrounding Zack, Autumn, their relationship, and the Werewolf & Shape-Shifting community, but as this series as taught me so far, what I think to be true is not always the case. This story left me smiling. Confused and perhaps a bit too concerned with the fate of the Shape-shifting & Werewolf world as well as two awesome main characters, but definitely still smiling. Like I said, I love Autumn, I love Zack, I love their family and friends, I love the world Veronica has created, I love it all. This series has it all for me; a romance that makes me grin and melts my heart at the same time, an interesting and refreshing paranormal world (which can get really hard to find as far as werewolves are concerned!), and a whole lot of tension and mystery to keep me flipping the pages. If you are looking for a book that has all of this, I definitely suggest picking up this series!
