Chelle is not your typical vampire. Turned not with a bite but an age-old magic, she's the only one of her kind and more powerful than most. Still adjusting to her endless thirst and lethal fangs, she's desperate to discover what sets her apart. When she encounters a brutally virile alpha werewolf, she soon learns that she's not immune to the mating call and her own primal longing
The leader of the ancient Forkbeard pack, Gunnar is stunned by Chelle's lush beauty. The wild wolf inside him howls for her, but unions between vampire and werewolf are strictly taboo even if their clans weren't on the verge of war. Desire has never been so dangerous but, as a malevolent new power rises, Chelle and Gunnar face an even more frightening threat. Together, they might find a way to save their clans. But can they claim their passion, in The Untamed Vampire by Kate Baxter.
Everyone loves a vampire story and especially a very unusual one. Well this one fills the need.
Chelle is quite determined to get her answers and along the way she learns a lot about herself and her relationship to others. Of the two main characters she has the greatest growth in her outlook of life and her belief about soul mates.
Gunnar is the typical in-charge alpha with a twist. He really cares about the people in his pack and always tries to find the good in all they do and are, while keeping their traditions. But...... he really doesn't want Chelle in his life because of the pack traditions.
The author does a supreme job of showing the struggles these two have with their belief systems and what they want out of life as well as how vampires, werewolves, berserkers and Sortiari start to pick sides in a war for power.
I give this 4 stars for showing the reader how to handle long standing belief systems in todays world.
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
Kate Baxter is a die-hard romantic with a thing for Shakespeare. She lives in the great northwest where she hides away to write about all things fanged, furry, and undead.
