I'm feeling really tired today, why you ask?? Well last night, at around 9pm I started reading 'Wolf Dancer' I was so enthralled in the story Rachel weaved that I found myself finished, but when I looked at the time?? it was 3am.... AGAIN (I did this too with book 1). MAJOR BOOK HANGOVER today. I can't believe how long it's been since I first read about Kat & Bass, but once i started reading it was like I'd never left. 'Wolf Dancer' is book 2 in Rachel's "New Dawn" series, I strongly advise you to read the first book in the series 'Winter Wolf' prior to reading this book.
Nico has always kept an eye on Olivia, so when he's walking back to pack lands but unknowingly finds himself where Olivia is just before an ex pack member attacks, he doesn't think twice before jumping into the situation.... I don't want to give anything away, but I can say Nico & Olivia's story is tough in places, caused me tears (it wasn't a pretty sight), thank goodness everyone in the house was asleep already. Yes Kat & Bass are in there quite a bit, seeing how they interract through Nico & Olivia's eyes. OMG I can't forget Arne, that dog is AMAZING. The last few chapters, that's when I cried the hardest! I think Rachel has weaved her magic once again & I can't wait to read what she has instore next time in the "New Dawn" series.
Wolf Dancer (New Dawn, #2)Wolf Dancer by Rachel M. Raithby My rating: 5 of 5 stars
*** Gifted in exchange for an honest review ***
Ms Raithby does it again, I may be blaspheming but I think I enjoyed this book more than Winter Wolf! Yes - Bass and Kat make an appearance which is fantastic, but learning more about the other pack members, and of course we met Nico in the first book, and he captured a corner of my heart then... I think he got most of it now.
Nico is not a pure blooded shifter, having a human mother and as a half breed wolf he has sometimes had issues with the pure bloods of the pack, but being best mates with the Alpha and Bass creating a title for him as "Alpha Advisor" he is taking the honour seriously - the eyes and ears of the lower pack members so that the issues of the past do not go unnoticed again.
Olivia, now there was a girl/wolf who is a deep character, on the one hand she seems submissive and a walkover, but when it comes to her hearts desire she was determined to follow through.
This book is a story of how 2 people who are right for each other, have to learn that sometimes the timing isn't quite right... Nico had difficult choices to make, but in the end he got his HEA.... and to find out how then you will have to buy the book.... I recommend it and I will be ordering my Paperback as soon as its live.
Well Done Rachel for yet another unforgettable story - one I will re read again I am sure.
Start Book 3 Wolf Sight - this one I have been intrigued about for ages - the title is is so mysterious!
