What a Rush!,
This review is from: Master of Wolves (Berkley Sensation) (Mass Market Paperback)
Angela Knight has brought her Mageverse series into full shining glory with this latest installment. Blending the perfect mix of erotic romance, fascinating characters and pulse pounding action, "Master of Wolves" is the best and most solid read that Knight has penned yet. A brief quote on the cover calls her a "rising star". How wrong they are. She's already a star shining very brightly in the romance book industry and her latest book is sure to please any fan of the paranormal subgenre.
Faith Weston is a dedicated K-9 officer with the Clarkston, NC police department. When she gets an anonymous donation of a fully trained police dog she's not about to look a gift horse in the mouth. Soon she and her new friend Rambo are busting drug abusers and all seems well within the confines of the small town. Rumors abound though of the town's jail, tales of people going in and not coming out alive. Such occurances are one reason Jim London has come town. He's set on finding his fellow werewolf's murderer and he comes up with the plan to go undercover - as Faith's furry sidekick Rambo. What he doesn't count on is her no-nonsense sense of justice, sexy body and honest heart. With death magic looming everywhere and a police department turned rogue, Faith won't stand down till she's solved the mystery. Just as adamate that Faith will not be harmed, Jim has no choice but to reveal himself to her. Faith and Jim will have to team up to find out who has the town's police in there thrall and when the going gets tough, the tough will get furry.
Fast-paced, action-packed and full of great signature Knight style romance, her latest is packing what everyone has come to love about her books. From the first page till the last, you will not want to put this one down. Faith is a great heroine. She's strong, independant, loyal and passionate. She's a little heart sore as well, but that's where Jim comes in. Readers will feel good about Faith's welfare with the sexy alpha Dire Wolf looking over her. He may be alpha, but he's not afraid to let Faith in on the action. He's charming, to-die-for drool worthy and all of Faith's descriptions about his butt...well, let me get back on track here. Together, they make one of the more enjoyable romance couples I've read about in a while. While both are jump-right-into-the-action types they still make plenty of room for each other, sharing the roles of hero and heroine equally. The opposition (a.k.a. the "bad guys") was equally as interesting and actually gave Jim and Faith a run for their money. I loved every minute of Knight's latest and still did not want to see it come to an end. Not that I didn't love her others in the series, but "Master of Wolves" lands them all solidly on my keeper shelf. Stay tuned for the next in the series, "Master of Swords" (Oct. '06) about Sir Gawain. Excellent tale, Ms. Knight. Many sighs of sated romance reading appreciation!
