    Ugh! This one was WORSE than the first book in the series!!! Is there no end to the repetitions? Yes, we know that mate in shifter world usually means one for your whole life. Why do you have to shove it down my brain this way? What was with Tobias and Pete having sex in completely random situations? Whenever I would think that we will get some meaningful communication between them, they would go at it like crazy.

Pete's reasons for going back to New York, his insecurities, were completely ridiculous. Tobias's detached agreement to whatever Pete said was simply preposterous! I kept reading to know how Zev's situation will be handled, but that was disapppointing as well. One by one, the book went on disappointing me with its lameness. If Roger is going to turn out to be Greg's fated mate, I may think of reading the next part. Otherwise, I'm going to chalk off this series from my mind forever.

    Excellent Book 3 of the 'Yellowstone Wolves Series' and I hope there are a few more books to come - especially one to find out what's going on between Kaiawa and Stephan. It's a very satifying read and Zev returns with more revengous on his mind against his younger brother Tobias. Each with the same mother, but different fathers. When Tobias encounters his true mate, Pete, and he's a human, Tobias could never put Pete in the position of never returning to his home in New York by mating with him. Excellent Book 3 of the 'Yellowstone Wolves Series' and I hope there are a few more books to come - especially one to find out what's going on between Kaiawa and Stephan.

When Tobias encounters his true mate, Pete, and he's a human, Tobias could never put Pete in the position of never returning to his home in New York by mating with him. The day after Tobais finds out he has met his true mate, Pete is to be brought to town until for a few days before traveling on to the tour bus that left him behind. But circumstances changed all that when Pete is approached by Zev while Tobais picked up supplies. When Tobias returns his crazy brother has his eyes set on the young man for himself. Tobias protects Pete by stepping in between Pete and Zev's crass behavior both by a jealousy and a need to protect his mate. Zev sets up any situations to kill his brother to take back the pack that was once part of their father's pack, which was born from black magic use, black magic that Zev has too. Dirk Greyson keeps his plots interesting and active throughout the book and there is lots of romance. I just love the relationship between Tobias and Pete that Greyson developed slowly into a strong bond without even mating yet. I would recommend starting with the first book to understand all that is talked about in this book, but it could be read as a stand alone read also.

    While the Old Faithful Pack, under the leadership of alpha couple Denton and Mikael, was the focus of the first two books in this series, the third volume tells the story of what is left of the Greenview Pack, and the wide-reaching consequences of the finally defeated former evil alpha, Anton.

It is a tale about finding a new purpose for the pack, making them a healthy group, and figuring out that the wolves’ Mother goddess knows best, even if what she says seems to be in contradiction to keeping the wolves safe from human interference at first. This is a suspenseful and action-packed novel, but in a different way than the first two. Much revolves around the emotional drama that follows Alpha Tobias’s decision to ignore the fact that Pete is his mate just because Pete is human. Pete is not the fittest guy or physically strong, but when he gets left behind by the irresponsible guides of his hiking group, he manages to build a fire, fight off a cougar, and find shelter. The building he sleeps in turns out be Tobias’s pack’s barn, and Pete is rescued by Tobias and introduced to what Pete thinks is a commune. Tobias knows the man he finds sleeping in the barn is his mate, but he also figures they can never be together because that would mean exposing the wolves to humans. A threat from Tobias’s half brother makes Tobias keep Pete with him for protection, but the resulting tensions and the physical attraction between them complicate things. Pete and Tobias have very different expectations of what their lives will be like. Pete is a city boy, but he is interested in nature and the pack’s way of life. Tobias can’t live anywhere except close to nature and thinks Pete will never adapt and can’t be interested in life with the pack because he is human. The feelings between them are too deep to be ignored, and even Tobias eventually understands that there is no point in trying to stay away – especially when Zev keeps interfering and threatening Pete. If you like the Yellowstone Wolves series with its philosophy of the Mother goddess and the wolves living in the light, if an alpha’s struggle between what he thinks is good for the pack and what is good for him sounds like an interesting conflict, and if you’re looking for a book filled with action, passion, and two mates who need to learn how they fit together despite their differences, then you will probably like this novel.

    Pete finds himself stranded in the wilderness in a thunderstorm. He's cold and being stalked by a cougar so he holes up in a shed for the night. Little does he know that he found his way to that particular shed with a little... divine assistance and his mundane life will never be the same. Tobias knows that Pete is his mate as soon as he sees him but there is a one teensy problem... Pete is human. Trusting Pete with not only his secret, but the safety of his pack is one thing. Telling Pete they Pete finds himself stranded in the wilderness in a thunderstorm. He's cold and being stalked by a cougar so he holes up in a shed for the night. Little does he know that he found his way to that particular shed with a little... divine assistance and his mundane life will never be the same. Tobias knows that Pete is his mate as soon as he sees him but there is a one teensy problem... Pete is human. Trusting Pete with not only his secret, but the safety of his pack is one thing. Telling Pete they are mates and what that implies, making Pete stay with him, that is one thing that Tobias won't do, even if it's the hardest decision he's ever had to make. Issues like sharing the fact that you're a wolf shifter and not wanting to claim your mate for fear of taking his life choices away from him are the least of Tobias's worries though. His half brother Zev, a homicidal, psychotic wolf shifter that thinks he's entitled wants to take what's Tobias's and that includes his pack and his mate. I really do enjoy a well written Shifter story where the history and characters are intricately woven into the storyline. Everything is tied together with the characters from the previous books, they all have a part to play. Darkness Rising was action packed and even had a few surprises. The passion between Tobias and Pete was a bit quirky but it worked for them. Pete is this sort of odd, geeky guy that has had his mind literally blown learning that shifters really do exist. And poor Tobias finally finds his mate and is willing to sacrifice his own happiness so that Pete can live his own life. If you enjoy Shifters, Paranormal romance and great stories that flow seemlessly from start to finish, you'll like this one.

    Dirk Greyson = Andrew Grey and this book reads like most other formula Andrew Grey stories. The three books in this series read like the first few novels involving main characters Eli and Geoff in Grey's "Happiness is" series. There are stunning similarities between the two series. In this, the third book in the Yellowstone series, Tobias is the alpha of a very small pack of wolves that was previously decimated by the power lust of Anton, the villain of book one of this series. After all of the Dirk Greyson = Andrew Grey and this book reads like most other formula Andrew Grey stories. The three books in this series read like the first few novels involving main characters Eli and Geoff in Grey's "Happiness is" series. There are stunning similarities between the two series. In this, the third book in the Yellowstone series, Tobias is the alpha of a very small pack of wolves that was previously decimated by the power lust of Anton, the villain of book one of this series. After all of the prior destruction, only 9 members of the pack still exist in a tiny little town in Wyoming. One day, a human named Pete -- who is a writer with writer's block and a waiter to make ends meet -- gets left behind by his bus tour group in Wyoming and he finds and stays in Tobias' storage barn during a night of pouring rain. After the rain stops, Tobias meets Pete, and his senses tell him that Pete is his true mate. (I think this is the first story I have read where a human, with no known shifter blood, is identified as a shifter's true mate.). Since being apart from a discovered true mate can cause each to go insane, and possibly die, it was interesting to see how the author, Andrew Grey, deals with that problem. Most of the book is spent vacillating back and forth -- will Pete stay with Tobias or won't Pete stay? Tobias doesn't tell him that they are true mates, even though he explains almost all other parts of wolf lore to Pete. It is incredible that not a single wolf, who can all smell the relationship between the two main characters, says congratulations or even slips about the two being true mates. So, Pete spends most of the novel getting ready to be driven to the airport three days from the beginning of the book to go back to his life in New York City. During the three day wait, there is an unusually high amount of wolf sex; saving the pack on multiple occasions from Tobias' deranged half-brother, Zev; Pete gets kidnapped by the same deranged brother; fighting a vengeful cougar over and over again (although that is never really explained); and Pete hearing from the "Mother" (the goddess who watches over wolf packs) to explain to him how to rescue his mate from the evil clutches of Zev. (And after the Goddess refers to Tobias as Pete's mate, Pete is so dense he does not ask anyone what this mate thing is all about.). How many times does Pete have to be hit over the head with not so subtle pieces of the story before he understands that he is something very special to Tobias? (I can tell you. It takes 132 pages of beating Pete over the head with the mate information before he actually understands that he is Tobias' mate.) Well, since Tobias never expressly asks Pete to stay with him, despite the facts that he has professed his love on multiple occasions, Pete gets on a plane and leaves. Because, of course, Pete must have absolutely no brain or mouth to be able to form the words "I love you and I want to stay." And what really burns my butt is that Pete is pissed off because Tobias did not tell him that they are true mates. BUT EVERYONE ELSE IN THE DAMN BOOK IS SENDING THOSE MESSAGES -- how many times do you have to hear that someone is your mate before you say, "hey, why is everyone saying that we are mates?" In the author's mind, the background characters could say it a million times, and the two lug-head main characters would never be able to figure it out on their own. Well, Pete leaves and returns to his life in New York City, and he decides to write a factionalized story of the interaction that develops between a character and a wolf pack family. Pete sends the story to Tobias for approval. While Tobias is reading the story, he gets another email that evil Zev is in New York and tracking Pete. That puts Tobias into overdrive and he flies to New York with the intent to kill Zev and to bring his mate back home. He flies to New York, finds Pete's apartment, sees Zev, challenges Zev, and kills Zev. Then Pete agrees to be marked by Tobias and be his mate forever. (NOTE TO AUTHOR -- this is a shifter novel, not a werewolf novel. If you want to have people become wolves by being bitten go and watch the Twilight movies.). So, in the end, Pete is Tobias' mate, they return to the pack, and they are supposedly going to live happily ever after. There are parts of this book that are better than the other books in this series, and there are some portions of this book that are far below the standards set on the first two books of this series. Overall, this is a 2.5 star novel. Having read all three stories in this series, I am begging Andrew Grey to stop writing shifter novels -- leave that genre to the people who do it much better than you do, and go back to writing about interactions between and amongst humans.

Alpha Tobias hat sich nach der großen Zerstörung durch den machthungrigen und skrupellosen Anton ein kleines Rudel aufgebaut, das unerkannt und abgeschieden lebt. Umso erschrockener ist er, dass sich ausgerechnet ein Mensch in sein Territorium verirrt, der sich zudem auch noch als sein Gefährte entpuppt. Und als wenn das nicht alles schon kompliziert genug wäre, trachtet ihm auch noch sein hinterhältiger Halbbruder Zev nach dem Leben. Pete ist ein Schriftsteller, der in New York lebt. Aufgrund einer Schreibblockade lässt er sich von seinem besten Freund Roger überreden, an einer Extremwanderung durch die Wildnis teilzunehmen. Dabei hofft er neue Ideen für sein nächstes Buch zu sammeln. Da er körperlich nicht mit dem Rest der Gruppe mithalten kann, fällt er immer wieder bei den langen Märschen zurück. Beim letzten Mal verirrt er sich im Wald und wird einfach von den Gruppenführern zurück gelassen. Auf der nächtlichen Flucht vor einem Puma findet er mit Mühe und Not einen Unterschlupf in einem abgelegenen Schuppen. Dort findet ihn schließlich Tobias. Auch im dritten Teil der Alpha-Serie entführt Dirk Greyson, alias Andrew Grey, die Leser wieder in die Welt der Wolfswandler. Neben neuen Charakteren gibt es auch ein Wiedersehen mit einigen Bekannten aus den ersten beiden Büchern. Das Paar Tobias und Pete mochte ich sofort. Tobias, der geborene Anführer, aufgewachsen in der liebevollen Atmosphäre seines Rudels. Daneben Tobias, der von einer Pflegefamilie zur nächsten weitergereicht wurde und sich deshalb als nicht liebenswert erachtet. Von so einer Familie, wie die von Tobias, hat er immer heimlich geträumt. Während es in den ersten beiden Bänden nur Probleme mit gegnerischen Alphas gab, wurde es diesmal noch schwieriger, denn Pete ist ein Mensch und die dürfen eigentlich nichts über die Existenz der Wandler wissen. Als Pete zum ersten Mal Tobias Wandlung erlebt, rennt er schreiend davon. Doch auch hierfür findet der Autor eine gelungene Lösung. Die Story erhält von mir 5 Sterne und eine Leseempfehlung. Mein Dank geht an den Cursed Verlag für das erhaltene Rezensionsexemplar.

    Wow.... ....eine wahnsinnig schöne, nervenaufreibende Geschichte. Ich habe mit Tobias und Pete gelitten, mich in beide verliebt und mich mit ihnen gefreut. Ich liebe alle drei Bücher dieser Reihe und trotzdem wüsste ich gern wie es für Greg weiter geht. 😉 Ich finde das Buch absolut empfehlenswert und habe sehr genossen zu lesen 📖

I’m never sure what I’m going to get when I start a ‘shifters’ book because let’s face it, they can go one way or the other. This one definitely went the way I hoped it would. I hadn’t read the preceding books but that didn’t affect my enjoyment of this one and I didn’t feel like I was missing any vital Info. Pete and Tobias are our two MC’s. Pete is human and after getting separated from a tour group out in the wilderness, he finds himself completely lost in a forest at night and takes shelter in an outhouse. Lucky for him, the owner of the shed is Tobias. As Alpha to a pack of wolf shifters, his priority is to protect his people from the outside world and having a human amongst them can only lead to problems. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how he looks at it), as soon as he encounters Pete, he knows this guy is his one true mate and it appears that the attraction is mutual. Things are moving along quite nicely between the two men but you can’t have a romance without a dodgy relative putting their oar in. The arrival of Zev (Tobias’ troubled, evil, bitter - you get the picture - half brother) puts Pete’s life in danger and Tobias will do everything to protect his mate - except tell him that he is his true mate, that is. Initially, Pete is portrayed as a bit hapless and generally, a bit odd but his character really comes out when he spends time with the pack. He’s quite the little organiser and I loved the way he stood up to Tobias and refused to submit to him. He’s really quite a feisty little guy but at the same time, they made an awesome couple, had great chemistry and were hot together. I’m glad they eventually got their act together and got their well deserved HEA. There will be another installment about the residents of Greenview Pack and having met a lot of them, there are two I have in mind that I’m hoping will be the subject of the next book *fingers crossed*

Things aren’t so beautiful once night fall comes and he faces the cold, a cougar, and a storm with plenty of thunder, lightning and rain. Trying to get out of the harsh elements, he wanders on to a small shed, and holes up there for the night. Tobias Montford is alpha of the newly established Greenview Pack. The pack is small and consists of his mother and sister, and a new addition who could arrive any day. Tobias and the pack suffered at the hands of a cruel alpha, but made progress building their own small community in Yellowstone. Sometimes Tobias struggles with making decisions, and seeks help from Mother goddess. When Greg, one of his pack members, makes Tobias aware of a human in their shed, they investigate. Tobias knows right away what Pete is—besides being human—and he knows that he needs to protect his pack, regardless of what Pete is to him. Pete’s a city boy and a writer, and Tobias knows the wilderness isn’t where he needs to be. As Tobias and the other pack members make Pete feel at home, he struggles through his feelings. Pete finds himself and Tobias getting emotionally involved, and it gets a little rocky at times, but Pete stands up to Tobias. With all the adjusting Pete and Tobias have to do, they also have to deal with Tobias’s half-brother, Zev. Zev not only brings danger to Tobias and Pete, but he threatens the serenity of the Greenview Pack. It’s been a while since I’ve read a shifter book, but this was a good, solid story. I liked Pete’s oddness and Tobias’s not-so-hard-core alpha. Combined, it gave these characters a nice blend of chemistry. This is the third book in the Yellowstone Wolves series, and I didn’t feel lost even though I hadn’t read the previous books, Challenge the Darkness and Darkness Threatening. This book did pique my interest in a few of the characters from the previous stories. There are characters aplenty, and there’s a definite hint that there will be another installment in the series. Shifter fans will really enjoy Darkness Rising. Reviewed by Maryann for The Novel Approach Reviews

    What a great shifter read. I am a huge fan of shifter books and this book is one of the top ones that I have read. That is a high compliment because I have read a lot of shifter books in the past. This is actually the first book in this series that I read.

It may be part of a series but their was plenty of background info for this story so it was not like I was picking up where the last left off. I did not feel as if I missed some huge storyline that I should have read before hand so I did not feel like I was grasping at anything to try and figure out what was happening. This is a shifter read but it is much more then that. It is good versus bad. Good versus evil and who will prevail in the end. Tobias is the leader of his pack and they are starting to flourish slowly and build back what was once lost to them. When a human stumbles upon one of their barns and Tobias realizes that Pete is also his mate, Tobias is torn between doing what nature calls for him to do and claim his mate and protecting his pack from the possible harm that could come from being exposed to a human. It is agonizing for Tobias to decide what is the best possible solution for him and his pack. The thing is that is all taken out of his hands when Tobias's brother returns and decides he wants what Tobias has and is willing to take it all from him either willing or by force. That includes Pete. When Zev makes a play at trying to defeat Tobias the first time around everyone of Tobias's secrets are revealed to Pete unexpectedly and now Pete has to decide what he wants in return. Whether it is to go back home and forget about everything he has learned or to stay and become part of the family that Tobias has. The danger that Zev pocesses is right around the corner waiting to strick. What will be the outcome and how many casualties will their be in in his wake? Will the good win or will it be the evil? This was an exciting read and I will definitely be awaiting and looking forward to the next book in this series now that I have read this one.

    Disappointing I was a little disappointed in this book. The romance between Peter and Tobias was sweet, but the conflict with Zev felt, ultimately, anticlimactic. The author changed the rules in this universe a bit with this book by making it an alpha attribute to be able to communicate mentally with the pack. Overall, this was an okay book, but I wouldn't have found it as engaging without the larger story of the series supporting it. Disappointing I was a little disappointed in this book.

The characters the overall storyline, each couple that is introduced...love. I look forward to these books being released with no patience at all. Tobias is the Alpha if his small pack, his job is to lead, care, and make sure each one of them are happy and getting what they need. Finding a human stranger in his barn who happens to be his true mate is the last thing he expected when he woke after a bad storm. He knows he can’t keep him, can’t tell of his secret, because exposing them could be dangerous. Pete lost and alone, separated from his hiking team, finds shelter in a barn after a storm and a jaguar are out to get him. Being from the city he has no idea how to survive being lost in the woods, thankful for the strangers that find him and help him until he can get back to where he belongs he helps out whenever he can. Pete is a bit unlucky in life it seems in the beginning but soon we get to see that he is actually stronger than he thinks he is and much more useful. He was so used to not being wanted that he couldn’t see beyond his own feelings to what was really going on with Tobias and himself. I loved his sass and take no shit attitude, even from Tobias. I loved how smart and clever he is, even how he handled a certain grumpy sister. I felt the immediate attraction between the two, and the author was fantastic at fanning the flames until they set fire to everything. Tobias gives up so much for those around him, which both broke and warmed my heart. He is just a good guy all around, never seeing what he gives up for his own happiness. But he’d that Alpha who isn’t big meany pants just because he’s Alpha. The chemistry between these were hot and of the charts. Zev, half-brother to Tobias, was the bad guy that was easy to not like. He felt creepy and slimy right from the start. I love how the author describes the power and darkness that surrounds him. He wasn’t as clever as he thought he was, that’s for sure, but he was blinded by his hatred and want that he couldn’t see how the truth in front of him. Can’t wait for the next in the series, which from the story, might be Greg and a certain human... *I received a copy of this book through http://diversereader.blogspot.com/*

    3.5 Stars! This is my first book in the Yellowstone Wolves series and while this was book 3, I didn't feel lost having not read the previous two books. I love Shifter books and was excited to read something new and different in the world of weres. Pete is human and on a hike when he finds himself abandoned by the group he'd been with.

This is my first book in the Yellowstone Wolves series and while this was book 3, I didn't feel lost having not read the previous two books. I love Shifter books and was excited to read something new and different in the world of weres. Pete is human and on a hike when he finds himself abandoned by the group he'd been with. Caught in a terrible storm and struggling to escape a cougar, he finds his way to a storage building where he stays the night. The next morning he is found by Tobias who unbeknownst to him is the Alpha of a local wolf pack. Tobias immediately recognizes Pete as his mate, but the fact that Pete is human is a concern. Tobias fears that if Pete finds out he could bring trouble. Sacrificing his desire to claim his mate, he decides that he will help Pete as best he can and then make sure he gets back home safely. Unfortunately, Tobias’s half brother, Zev, has his sights set on making Tobias suffer for the way he's been treated. He feels he deserves to be Alpha and is willing to do anything to make it happen. When he sees Pete, he decides he wants him, too. Now Tobias has to fight for his pack and for Pete who has no idea he is Tobias's mate. I enjoyed Darkness Rising as well as both Pete and Tobias. Unfortunately, though I wasn't all that blown away by the story and it just didn't have completely invested in it. I felt as if there really wasn't resolution with the whole Zev situation and that took away a little from the story. This wasn't a bad story by any means it just wasn't a great one for me. I'd recommend it to fans of the series and for people looking for well-written shifter books. *Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by Dreamspinner Press for my reading pleasure in hopes of an unbiased opinion, a review was not a requirement.*

    While I have not read the other line written by Dirk Greyson (aka Andrew Grey), I really, really love this series a ton! There is a real “wolfy” element to Greyson’s wolves that keep them in the wild and make them live in a more primitive, natural way that feels more like a “pack” would. I like that element of realism. I like that their understandable fear of discovery keeps them very off the grid.

I like that their understandable fear of discovery keeps them very off the grid. In the previous books we had some very compelling romances and a little bit of drama that involved the packs. This time, we have a less compelling romance and a lot of external drama that provides the struggle for our MCs. Of the three in this series, this is the weakest so far. While I appreciated Tobias’ desire to let Peter make his own decisions, his inability to just TALK to him made me a bit crazy. I also didn’t understand Peter’s decisions most of the time – they seemed sometimes bewilderingly naïve to plain out ballsy and crazy! He just seemed like such a contradiction so much of the time that it was hard to get a good feel for him. As a result his and Tobias’ romance felt a little “off” as well. Of course I wanted them to get together, but they sort of went from zero to sixty back to zero with little provocation. I also really, really wanted Zev handled and I wondered just how many times he had to turn on the pack before they would finally realize that he was beyond “saving”. I loved the dynamics between the other members of the pack. They felt natural and good and I liked watching Michael interact with Tobias and his pack as well. All in all I think this is an excellent example of a “good” shifter story and on it’s own I give high marks. Compared to the others in this series I liked it a little less, but it was still really good. 4.25 (rounded to 4.5) of 5 stars

    Pete is a New York “city slicker” whose friend booked both of them on a tour of Yellowstone Park. When his friend becomes ill and can’t go, Pete goes by himself, not realizing that it is a hiking tour, something Pete is completely out of his element attempting. When he becomes separated from his fellow hikers and tour guide (a jerk) Pete becomes disoriented during a rainstorm and takes shelter in a small barn. He doesn’t know it is owned by a small wolf shifter pack. In fact he has no idea shift Pete is a New York “city slicker” whose friend booked both of them on a tour of Yellowstone Park. When his friend becomes ill and can’t go, Pete goes by himself, not realizing that it is a hiking tour, something Pete is completely out of his element attempting. When he becomes separated from his fellow hikers and tour guide (a jerk) Pete becomes disoriented during a rainstorm and takes shelter in a small barn. He doesn’t know it is owned by a small wolf shifter pack. In fact he has no idea shifters even exist. Tobias is the alpha of his small Yellowstone wolf shifter pack. When he finds Pete in his barn after a storm he is stunned to realize Pete is his destined mate. While Tobias tries to hide the existence of wolf shifters from Pete, problems develop when an old enemy shows up and decides to take Pete away from Tobias. This fight continues throughout the book, which gives the story a lot of anxiety and angst. Despite the advice of his mother and others in the pack, Tobias refuses to reveal to Pete that they are true mates. This becomes more difficult after Tobias has to shift in front of Pete, revealing what he really is, and after Tobias and Pete make love. Tobias and Pete are in love, although both refuse to admit it since Pete is on vacation and will have to return to New York in a few days. I loved the way Pete goes from being pretty helpless in the outdoors to learning to fend for himself. Nevertheless he has to return to New York, where he has a job, a life, and friends. The dramatic ending of the book is thrilling and the perfect conclusion. Dirk Greyson writes wonderful shifter stories, as well as mysteries and thrillers. This is the third book in a trilogy but easily read as a stand-alone novel. Nevertheless, if you haven’t read Challenge the Darkness or Darkness Threatening, I highly recommend reading all three books.

    I loved Challenge the Darkness, book one in the Yellowstone Wolves series, completely missed the release of Darkness Threatening and picked up Darkness Rising when I caught it on sale through DSP. While books one and two are closely entwined, this is enough of a stand alone that it could be read separately but I strongly recommend reading them in order as the events in Darkness Rising are the result of the previous book's contents. That being said, Darkness Rising has a completely different feel I loved Challenge the Darkness, book one in the Yellowstone Wolves series, completely missed the release of Darkness Threatening and picked up Darkness Rising when I caught it on sale through DSP.

That being said, Darkness Rising has a completely different feel than the first books, as their main characters only play minor rolls in this story. Tobias is strong, honorable and stubborn beyond belief. Pete is cautious yet adorable. Together they are a couple I feel good about rooting for. There is still a source of danger, in the shape of Zev, Tobias's brother, but the situation isn't as dire as in the previous books. The overall feel of this story is one of hope and healing. It seems to be the conclusion of this series and I am happy with the way it ended.
