Out of the Dark by Quinn Loftis (The Grey Wolves #4)

Darkness has descended on the Transylvanian Alps.
Four packs of the powerful Grey wolves – in a rare show of cooperation – had joined together here in an effort to help their pack members find true mates. Then they were betrayed by one of their own – an Alpha hell-bent on becoming the most powerful of the Canis lupis. And though the wolf’s assassination attempt on the currently-reigning Romanian Alpha failed, his plans to get Decebel, the Romanian Beta, out of the picture were coming together even as his treachery was discovered. The wolf fled, leaving destruction, death, and a missing mate behind him.

Unbeknownst to the other packs, the wolf has employed a witch to finish the deadly job and help him gain another tool to increase his power. A curse of devastating proportions will cripple Decebel in a way that may dissolve his fragile bond with Jennifer. Meanwhile, injured and alone, Jen has been fighting for her life. She had come to terms with her fate, accepting that she would not share a life with Decebel, until help came in the most unexpected form…

Vasile will have to use all his resources – including Sally, the new gypsy healer of the Romanian pack – to discover a way in which to destroy the witch, lift the curse from Decebel and reunite him with the one woman who makes him whole, and solve a mystery that’s been surrounding the Romanian pack for 300 years. From Goodreads.

Oh geez. It is just getting crazier. Sally is a Gypsy healer, Jen and Dec are still separated but it is worse than ever since he was cursed to forget all about her, the curse was originally for Fane and Jacque, the mansion that everyone was staying at burnt to the ground because of a witch. It was crazy, luckily for Jen she was found by Grey Wolves that were hiding for that witch because the girl is a Gypsy healer and also a wolf.

Throughout the story I really, really wanted to cry for Jen and Dec. They went through so much and it just got worse and worse. Eventually they bonded and married. But tragedy struck again but luckily the Fey stepped in and saved the day. Literallly.

I don’t want to give too much away because the story is great from book one all the way through. But this time Sally and Costin are learning how to get along since there is a pull to each other but they don’t understand how because she doesn’t have any wolf blood in her. Just the Gypsy blood which is explained eventually by Jen and Jacque to her and Dec and Vasile explain it to Costin.

The battle was pretty epic but obviously it isn’t over since the reason why it happened at all was the witch and she managed to get away. I am hoping there is another book, I am sure there is but there isn’t any info out yet about it. I know I don’t give much away but I really like this story, she took another step with the werewolf legend and changed it up enough that made it completely different then most stories out there. I do recommend reading this series if for no other reason than the hot guys in it.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Just One Drop by Quinn Loftis (The Grey Wolves #3)

Jennifer Adams, best friend to Jacque Pierce and Sally Morgan, spicy, out spoken, a little crazy and human…or so she thought. Jen has just found out that human DNA is not the only thing that resides in her veins, she happens to share that little pesky werewolf gene, although it isn’t more than just a drop. Now that she and her friends are living in Romania with Fane’s pack, she is also oh so conveniently stuck with the object of her affection, the fur ball Decebel.

Drawn to each other by something they don’t understand Jen finds herself frustrated by the lack of mating signs between her and said fur ball. Not only is she dealing with that not so un-frustrating problem, she now has been informed that because of that little drop of werewolf blood in her she is now required to attended a multi-pack gathering for un-mated wolves. This type of gathering hasn’t taken place in over a century but with a shortage of females among the werewolf population the males are getting worried they won’t ever find their true mates.

Meanwhile Decebel struggles with the emotions he is feeling towards Jen. He tries to keep his distance but there is just something about the mouthy blonde that keeps him coming back for more of her verbal abuse that he just can’t seem to get enough of…go figure. From Goodreads.

This series just gets better with every book. Now that Fane and Jacque are bonded and married they are safe. Or at least it seems that way. This book is about Jen though and Dec. This time the problem is that all unmated weres and anyone who has any just a drop of Grey Wolf blood has to attend a giant type of speed dating. The Alpha’s are hoping that by doing this that the unmated will find their true mate. This is noble and all that but for the people that barely have any Grey Wolf blood in their system it is harder for it to show that they are true mates.

This time around though, the reasoning for the bad guy is that he is jealous that Fane found his true mate and Fane is only 18 years old and he has been around a lot longer and needs his true mate now not later. Men, they only want what they can’t have of course.

In this one Dec and Jen are drawn to each other but they don’t have any signs of being mates so technically he can’t freak out on every guy that talks to her or touches her. Of course that doesn’t help anything because he does it anyways. They have one of those love/hate relationships except that they really do love each other but can’t talk or do anything about it unless the signs start showing. Eventually something happens and they are separated because he threatens everyone over a video of her and 2 other unmated girls from their pack.

While they are separated, Valise and his wife are poisoned. So Jen, Sally and Marianna go out looking for a plant that will stop the poison. While they are out looking Marianna knocked Jen into a drop in the mountain where she was dying, but by putting her life in jeopardy Jen and Dec now are showing signs of being true mates. Seems ironic since they have only wanted to be together and now they can’t because she is dying alone.

This book was like a roller coaster ride of ups and downs with my emotions. I think this may have been my favorite book of the series so far.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
