Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 191 - Battle Hymn by William C. Dietz, The Last Wolf by Maria Vale

Battle Hymn (America Rising, #3)Battle Hymn by William C. Dietz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

America is still trying to recover from the meteor strikes and the war between the North and South is ongoing. The final battles are looming and we get to see each in detail. Robin "Mac" Macintyre and Union president Samuel T. Sloan are working together and still facing their attraction to each other. This is full of battles and behind the scenes action. I read the first book but not the second and had no trouble knowing what was going on. Dietz does a really good job of working backstory into the story line and that kept me up to date on what was happening. A nice ending to a three book series.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

The Last Wolf (The Legend of All Wolves, #1)The Last Wolf by Maria Vale
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Silver Nilsdottir is the last wolf in her pack (that is where the title comes from). She was the runt of her litter, no one though she would live and when she shifts she has a bad leg. In spite of all of that she is one of the strongest in her pack. Tiberius Leveraux is a shifter and a lone wolf who asked to join the pack. He needs someone to agree to help him and Silver agrees. The backstory starts with the prolog and there you learn the difference between Shifters and Werewolfs. Then the story moves to modern times. I enjoyed meeting Silver. Turns out Tiberius is not what he seems but he does recognize how strong and brave Silver is. As they interact Tiberius slowly changes and the two become a mated pair. A interesting take on the different types of werewolf and a good story line with some interesting changes as the story progresses. Seems that there is danger for the pack and our two main characters are important in keeping the pack together.  This is the first book in a new series.

I received a free copy of the book from the publisher.
