Kelly Meade, author of Grey Bishop and Black Rook, continues her Cornerstone Run saga…


Despite a month of peace from hybrid attacks, the constant threat of violence has the loup garou on edge. Knight McQueen’s home feels like a military compound and his people have become battle-weary soldiers. And Knight’s tenuous grip on his own self-control has been further damaged by the disappearance of the only woman whose touch brings him peace.

Held prisoner by her hybrid half-sisters and forced to care for an unknown child, Shay Butler’s quarterly is approaching but a silver-laced collar prevents her from shifting. As her time draws closer, her sanity begins to slip.

The opportunity to rescue Shay arrives when Magus enemy Archimedes Atwood requests a parley to discuss ways to end the conflict between their people and stop the rogue hybrids. Alpha Bishop McQueen agrees, bringing his brothers together to form a plan that will bring Shay home to Knight, stop the final two hybrids—and finally bring Archimedes to justice once and for all…

Knight’s character has been growing on me throughout this trilogy which is why I’ve been impatiently awaiting this last installment with bated breath. White wolves are this universe’s unicorn, and this final HEA has been quite the arduous battle, thus I expected a glorious conclusion to the McQueen family’s adventure via the middle brother. WHITE KNIGHT was a far cry from being the grim story that I had anticipated; yes there was still darkness and death, however for the most part Knight’s tale was about healing and moving forward. It was an uplifting way to end this series, but the radical about-face made for a somewhat bumpy read.

There’s no disputing it, Bishop and Rook ARE alpha males, while as Knight is more of an emo werewolf which was what made him so unique, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s incapable of getting his claws bloody when the need arises. Or at least, that was my take on it anyway. Regrettably, McQueen’s part in this story was rather humdrum in that he didn’t rescue his lady, barely contributed to offing the antagonist, and instead spent the bulk of his time talking about his feelings. Kudos to him for finally getting the words out; however heartfelt confessions don’t exactly make the pages fly by.

Shay definitely wears the pants in this CORNERSTONE RUN relationship, and this story was just as much hers as her mate’s, although I unquestionably enjoyed her role tenfold in comparison to Knight’s. She showed courage while at the mercy of the hybrids, loyalty to Chelsea & Leopold and unrelenting patience to her beloved. I was also happy to see her own her alpha daughter status by supplying Bishop with tactics to help defeat their enemies, and offering up ideas on how to improve pack life. This book would have been hella boring without her.

Ok, that’s not entirely true, I liked the plot a great deal as well, and Meade wrapped up all of the threads to my satisfaction, even a few that I had completely forgotten about or didn’t realize were linked to the bigger picture. I actually found myself hating the hybrids less and less, and Atwood more and more as the truth surfaced. The Paul Melina aspect was inspired, and the Dell Jones incident was further validation that the author left no stone unturned. This novel would have felt incomplete without an epilogue, so I was immensely grateful that Meade decided to go the distance, and deliver the flash forward that I craved.

WHITE KNIGHT was the light at the end of the CORNERSTONE RUN trilogy. ~ 3.5 Stars

Knight and his two brothers have to bring Shay home and form a plan – one to stop the two hybrids and finally bring Archimedes to justice in this thrilling conclusion to the Conerstone Run trilogy.

The hybrids have taken Shay and forced her to care for an unknown infant and Knight is losing the battle to control his wolf and the reader can’t help but get caught up in the emotionally gripping tale as they fight to survive the war with the insane hybrids and overcome all the heartbreaking turmoil that they have been through. The fast pace and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of suspense and excitement as the wolves of Conerstone Run continue to bewitch readers and ensure that they want to know every last detail. The attraction between Knight and Shay slowly simmers into a scorching desire that facilitates in the healing of lots of emotional issues that hinder their relationship, including the guilt that Knight feels for several things as well as the trauma of what he suffered at the hands of the hybrids.

The well written scenes and details capture the imagination and bring the story to life with vivid imagery and the well orchestrated and believable action and suspense draw the reader deeper into the story. Spine tingling anticipation builds throughout the story as the Run deals with several conflicts and issues all while preparing for the next attack and trying to find a way to stop the hybrids forever. There is never a dull moment as betrayals, secrets and surprising twists keep readers on their toes.

I have been impatiently awaiting this book as I have enjoyed this trilogy from the beginning and I have to say that I am quite pleased with how the author brought the series to an end and the wonderful epilogue that gives readers a glimpse of the future.

I love this series and have been very impatiently awaiting White Knight, so dived right in when I got a copy. I finished it a few days ago and still don't know what to say. My heart and emotions were taken to the brink!!

I'm not going to say too much about the plot because I know I would spoil it but I will say that's it's a heartbreaking and dangerous round for the Cornerstone gang. There's death, destruction, betrayal and some happiness thrown together to make a magnificent read.

During the first two books, I loved Knight and my heart broke for him when what happened happened, so when he met Shay, I was thrilled. Poor Shay was kidnapped at the end of book 2 and my heart shattered for both. Now a month is past and poor Shay is locked up, starved, kept from shifting and on the brink of loosing her mind. Knight is bottling everything up and is frantic with worry for hay. Along with all that, the treat from the rogues is still there and Knight has to deal with the emotional well being of his pack. How can he keep sane and find his mate?

This isn't just Knights story, it's Shays as well. Both of them have had so much happen to them and Kelly Meade isn't afraid to put her characters through the ringer. I love both these characters but Shay is so kick ass in this and really grabs her Black Wolf status. Her strength and heart really shine through in this book and again, my heart broke for her at a certain part.

Knight is hanging by a thread emotionally and after the forced shift he is carrying some inner darkness in him. He has always struggled with the emotions of others but now more than every it's overwhelming him. How can he help his run when he cant get passed his own trauma?

Anyway, White Knight is an emotional and thrilling read. While I'm truly sad to see the end of this series, I am happy with the ending. The author wrapped up everything nicely and even threw in some surprising twists!! Kelly Meade is one heck of a story teller and I truly hope more people will read this series. I hope one day we may get to revisit the Cornerstone Run but either way, I know I will read this series again and again. Highly recommend!!

The Cornerstone Trilogy has been a great series for me. While being a paranormal romance series, it was extremely dark and had more of a urban fantasy feel to it. What I mean by that is that the overall story of the family was the main part of the plot of every story up to this point. The romance of each book was almost more of a secondary part of the story of the trilogy.

This story is focused on Knight, the white wolf of the McQueen family and the Cornerstone pack. He has been an integral part of the entire trilogy. He has also been my favorite character. I don't normally fall in love with angsty characters, but something about Knight made me love him. As the white wolf of the pack, he is an empath and helps everyone in the pack with their emotions. This is all well and good, until he is the one who needs the help. He has had a rough road starting in Black Rook and the road doesn't appear like it is going to ever get easier.

Shay, as a former alpha's daughter and a black wolf, is a very strong woman. She has shown that in the previous books. She not only continues to show her strength in character, but she shows her ability to lead when she makes some great suggestions to Bishop. You could really see where her father trained her to be a future alpha female.

Bishop shows he was a great choice to lead the new mixed pack. Bishop is also great in his ability to listen to other options and taking the suggestions from a different packs culture. He is willing to be flexible and take the best of each of the packs to make the best choices for this new pack.

While I enjoyed this story, it just didn't have the action or suspense of the first two books. There are some plot twists that I didn't see coming. But I didn't like where things went with the twins. I started to feel sorry for them, and I don't want to feel sorry for the villain. They didn't seem like the boogey men that they had been throughout the series. I also didn't like Bryn's Dad. I know he was a villain, but I didn't think he was a great villain. I could see through him too easily.

This book has some great news for the McQueen family. There is also a lot of sadness, which you've come to expect from this series. However, I think overall, this book does have more happiness than sadness. The trilogy does wrap up well. I would still give the entire series a 4 stars and believe it is a must read for all PNR/UF fans.

Warning: White Knight has some elements that some readers might find hard to read about like references to rape and child abuse.

If you are a fan of Kelly’s writing under her other name, Meding then you know she’s no stranger to putting her characters through hell. And that’s what she has done with Knight. He is still dealing with death and loose like the rest of the run and his family. But Knight has a personal hell he is trying to get over and with the last installment it all finally comes out and Knight is able to really start the healing process with the love of his brothers and his mate, Shay.

Shay also has issues of her own to overcome, but she and Knight help each other get to a happier place while they all try to take down the evil hybrid bitches that’s caused so much death and grief. I have to say that Knight and Shay are my favorite couple in the trilogy. The main reason it that we get to see their romance slowly build over the course of the trilogy making their love feel genuine and less fated to be mates. (Not that the other McQueen brothers have an insta-love HEA.)

Now that the stories of the loup garou are warpped up I’d love to see some stories on the vampire clans. We got a quick look at them and I think that Kelly could bring some interesting twists to the vampire mythology.

When I saw that the Cornerstone Run Trilogy was now on audio and that Xe Sands narrates it I had to listen to the last installment, White Knight. I love the team of Xe Sands and Kelly Meade (Meding). The writing is top-notch and the narration is superb. Xe’s voice is smooth, seductive and she has a great range that she can deliver both male and female voices perfectly. Xe makes you feel the emotions of the characters. I can feel when she’s narrating a happy scene, I just know when she is smiling. I can hear it in her voice.

White Knight is a very satisfying ending to the Cornerstone Run Trilogy, I only wish I could have listened to all three installments. If you haven’t started the trilogy I highly recommend it on audio!

Ah, the Cornerstone Run trilogy... I have to admit that I wasn't quite sold on the debut novel, Black Rook, but then came Bishop and Jillian and they just blew me away in Gray Bishop! Honestly, I never expected Bishop to turn out to be my favorite brother; I really thought his story was going to be the weakest of the three but I was surely wrong. While White Knight didn't reach those heights again, it was still a solid paranormal romance and provided a satisfying end to the series.

For the entire trilogy, the werewolves of the Cornerstone Run and its allies in other nearby runs have been attacked and tormented by a group of magus/werewolf/vampire hybrids. When we begin White Knight, the sisters have been reduced to two but they've also kidnapped Shay, Knight's mate, and are holding her hostage. As a white wolf, Knight can feel and influence the emotions of everyone around him and he's trying to be strong for his pack. His control is starting to wane without Shay around and he is dealing with enormous amounts of grief that he keeps locked away. The run is out for vengeance but they no leads on the whereabouts of the hybrids and Shay until Archimedes Atwood, high-ranking magus and father of Rook's mate Brynn, approaches Bishop with a very convenient offer of help. Now the wolves must decide if they will let the magus into their world... and whether or not he can be trusted.

As the third book in this series, it's hard to review White Knight without mentioning events and characters from the previous two books. If you haven't read them yet, please be aware that this review might contain some spoilers. You definitely need to read Black Rook and Gray Bishop before jumping into this one as it cannot be considered a standalone.

One thing to know about this book is that it is a story of healing. While White Knight does close out the conflict between the wolves, hybrids, and magus, it is really dedicated to Knight finding closure for the pain he's been experiencing since the events of the first book. He admits to his loved ones what exactly happened the night he was held by the hybrids and begins to move past the trauma. He is finally able to talk about the rape openly and is even able to deal with the grief of losing a child he never wanted nor even knew about. Knight isn't the only one that begins to let go of his pain either. Shay really comes into her own during this book and conquers her fears and doubts from the decimation of her pack and being left alone. She is a black wolf, raised to be a future alpha, and she begins acting like it here. Devlin, one of Bishop's enforcers and a close friend to the McQueen brothers, also begins to move forward after the loss of his cousin in Gray Bishop. It's not an easy road for him, but Knight helps Devlin to see what he would be losing if he can't work through his grief. While White Knight was a very cathartic book, that doesn't mean it didn't have any action or darkness.

This is a little bit of a spoiler, but I think everyone who reads this book expects it to happen... Shay is able to get away from the hybrids pretty early on and return to the run. The real surprise comes from what she discovered while locked up with the hybrids and the reason for them taking her in the first place. We learn more about her and Brynn's mother and exactly what happened to her after she was kidnapped by the magus. Also, the history of the hybrids and what made them so dedicated to revenge is revealed. The more we learn about them, the harder it is to see them unredeemable as villains and to hate them completely. It's also easier and easier to despise the magus and to begin to see them as the true criminals of the story.

Speaking of the magus, Brynn's father has a large role to play in White Knight. I've never liked the man, but it's hard to say whether or not he truly cares for Brynn. When he approaches Bishop, it seems like he truly wants to the help the wolves, for his own reasons of course, and to protect Brynn but it's impossible to be sure what he true motivations are. Suffice it to say, I was actually surprised by Atwood's actions at the end of the book. I hope you will be too!

White Knight was the story of Knight and Shay finally coming together, but we also get some development from Bishop and Jillian and especially Rook and Brynn. I don't want to spoil it, but its great news. I've enjoyed the ride with these characters and, though I'm always sad when a series ends, I think Kelly Meade did a great job bringing the story full circle and tying up the majority of the loose ends. While I wouldn't say these characters' stories are over, I do think they are at a terrific stopping point... though I wouldn't say no to a fast forward look at how the run has rebuilt itself and developed in the not too distant future, maybe featuring some of Cornerstone's younger generations.

Favorite Quote: “Figures, an old crazy house.”

Knight McQueen has suffered greatly due to the hybrids increasing violence against his people. Forced to hide due to the hybrid’s agenda concerning him, Knight teeters between extreme guilt, rage, and depression. When the one person who helps him hold on to his humanity is kidnapped, Knight loses his tentative grip on his self-control and begins a steady decline into the abyss.

Shay Butler was traumatized by the massacre of her Run by the hybrids. Taken in by the Cornerstone Run, Shay finds hope and healing with the Run’s white wolf-Knight. Abruptly kidnapped by her half sisters-the hybrids-Shay is forced to care for an unknown newborn. Chained, starved, and forced to wear a collar of silver, Shay fears she will lose her sanity before she is rescued.

Help comes from the most unlikely of sources…Archimedes Atwood. Byrnn’s father and the Magus who started this war. He waves the white flag and offers to help find Shay if the Run will protect him from the hybrids. The McQueen’s agree and soon a diabolical and dangerous plan is hatched…one that will save Shay, destroy the hybrids, and deal with the Magus once and for all.

White Knight is the third and final installment in Meade’s Cornerstone Run Trilogy. An action packed dark urban fantasy that revolves around a family of loup garous-the McQueens. If you haven’t read books one and two, I highly recommend you do so as the ongoing arc is extremely important to the storyline and characters bleed over with little to no recap. Each book focuses on one brother. Though we see the same high impact action scenes and shocking revelations that were present in the first two books, this installment was tamer in a sense and focuses more on Knight’s emotional healing and his relationship with the black wolf-Shay.

Knight is in a bad place from the previous events. He has some issues that he has tried to bury for the good of his pack. Being a rare white wolf, his gift of empathy helps to balance the emotions of those around him. He can’t afford to let his emotions out for fear they will backlash on the pack. Fans have waited for Knight to finally admit to his family and Shay everything that happened to him when he was in the hands of the hybrids. It’s heartbreaking.

Shay was probably my favorite character in this series. Hit from all sides repeatedly, left without family or friends, her strength, intelligence, and ingrained leadership qualities allowed her the ability to know when compassion is needed and when death is required. She and Knight are true soul mates in that they heal and ground one another. Their chemistry is magnetic and it’s in here they finally throw caution and rules to the wind and fully commit to one another.

Revelations are made that explain the origins of the hybrids, their link to Brynn and Shay, and why they want Knight so desperately. Though they are dangerous and insane, they are but merely a product of their birth and environment and ingrained with a strong will to survive. Meade has always had an interesting outlook on good and evil and most often than not, her characters comfortably straddle the line between them. I had pity for the hybrids towards the end. I enjoyed the meeting the additional supernatural factions and seeing the world through their eyes.

While I enjoyed the story overall and was happy to see the conclusion addresses most of the issues and provides us with a plausible ending, there was a distinct lack of anticipation, suspense, and yes, violence, that I came to associate with the series. As I mentioned earlier, the book centers on Knight and his emotional and mental healing. Dialogue is at a premium but also takes over during intense moments. I felt there were too many other POVs that derailed the momentum the story was trying to build. There were some issues that didn’t resolve fully for me and I questioned the change in direction and attitude.

Regardless of my qualms, Meade wraps up White Knight to satisfaction and leaves an opening in which to revisit again.

The kidnapping of his unacknowledged mate, Shay, just adds to all that Knight McQueen and his people have suffered at the hands of the psycho hybrid sisters, and he will do whatever is necessary to get Shay back. But even as Shay is almost forced to the brink of madness with her wolf time approaching and her captors refusing to allow her to shift, Shay uncovers more of the truth about the Magus' role in the hybrid's creation and struggles to get herself free and back to Knight.

I still really like the idea of the white, black and gray wolves and I still really love the McQueen brother's chess inspired names: Rook, Knight and Bishop. I came into this story having read the first book and not the second, by this still worked for me.

The final McQueen brother's story was well done and everything in the series - the threat to the packs and Brynn's vision that kicked off the first book - wrapped up satisfactorily, and with a a nice HEA for all the brothers and their mates. Both Knight and Shay had some pretty traumatic things happen to them over the course of the series and the author actually had them work through them instead of glossing things over. The past starting couples get some good screen time as well.

There are a couple odd moments in the leadup to the physical part of the relationship because Shay's wolf is the dominant wolf alpha and Knight's is the white wolf empath - it feels gender role reverse-y here when Knight hasn't really felt 'less' in before and his special power makes him important to the pack.

Still that was a nit and I enjoyed the two books that I read, and still plan to go back and read Bishop's book at some point.

*My Thoughts*

White Knight closes out the Cornerstone Run Trilogy by featuring Black Wolf Shay Butler, and White Wolf Knight McQueen. Meade alternates her story between not only Shay, and Knight, but others who we've met along the way. When we finished reading Gray Bishop, the Cornerstone Run had been bamboozled by the hybrids, and Shay was taken against her will.

The last story tore my guts out with all the horrific events and loss the McQueens and the rest of the Cornerstone Run wolves had to face, but it got worse when the hybrids took Shay leaving an already emotionally decimated Knight out of his mind. Shay is his mate and the only one who could reach him in the dark place his mind went to after his rape, loss of father, loss of friends and the many losses of life as the hybrids seek to recapture him for his white wolf abilities. Knight is determined that whatever else happens that he will no longer be a victim and he will make the decisions that affect his life including the one to get his mate back and kill the hybrids.

Shay's barely holding on since her capture. She is kept weak and helpless because the hybrids keep her near starving and neutralize her shifting ability with a silver collar. She is imprisoned with a baby that she suspects is yet another half-breed relation. She is terrified that her quarterly shift will come and her wolf will kill the baby. The hybrids don't take her seriously and are still working on schemes of their own. Shay learns more about the 'why's behind all their plans and gets more surprise revelations, but it only drives her harder in her need to escape.

Bishop is approached by Brynn's father about forming a temporary alliance to take care of the hybrid issue. Nobody is keen to trust the magus, but the choices are few. Meanwhile, Brynn's foretellings along with circumstances are leading to a big final confrontation.

As finale's go, I had strong expectations particularly after the hard hitting middle book which is possibly part of why this one struck me as good, but not great. Another reason is because Knight's story is predominately introspective and character-driven. I get why. With all his issues, how could it not be? There were also the long period of time spent in explanation for all the trouble the hybrids caused which I enjoyed learning after all this time, but it didn't really advance the story or excite me. I wish Bishop's story had been last because of the difference in pace and tone. It was the perfect storm of character growth, tension, danger, passion and just nail-biting page-turner stuff. This one didn't hit me that way. In fact, there were a few times when tension points were built up only to be brushed aside quickly or allowed to go on off scene. I can't get specific without discussing spoilers, but a few examples are the possibility of Knight being forced to leave the pack, obey shifter law and replace another pack's dead white wolf and the situation with Brynn's father left me with questions even if some things were answered.

Now, lest I leave you thinking it was an utter disappointment or that I'm sorry I read it, I want to be clear that this was a really good story. Knight had to come back from a dark place and he does- slowly, but surely claw his way back. Shay has her own personal victory to win. And they both have to show their strength in their own ways to help gain the victory over their enemies. I loved it when they came together as mates and as a couple. They are passionate and loving. I've talked about the dominance dynamics of the wolf types in the last book's review because Bishop is a gray and his mate is a black wolf. Knight and Shay encounter this too since Shay's black wolf is more dominant than Knight's white wolf. Shay has to be careful about this because of Knight's trigger issues from his rape experience. I thought the author did a fantastic job with this.

I also enjoyed the side stories that pursue the ongoing threads of how Bishop is doing as pack alpha with Jillian alongside and how Rook and Brynn are doing along with other strong supporting characters. The big climax fight scene was quick, but it was surely exciting particularly what led up to it. Wow, didn't see that coming. There was a nice epilogue that updated things and left me with some strong warm fuzzies for the characters and not wanting to say good-bye to the McQueens and their Cornerstone Run pack.

So all in all, it was a really good read. Knight and Shay were a fantastic pair and it was satisfying to see them dig their way back to happiness as they confronted the danger of their enemies. This series would definitely have appeal to those who enjoy Paranormal Romance particularly shifter stories.

My thanks to Penguin Group and Net Galley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the much anticipated conclusion to this dark paranormal romance. I enjoyed the world the author has created of loup communities that are brought to the brink of war as one faction tries to destroy the others. The McQueen brothers are amazing as they fight for the loupes and try to find peace again.

Shay is the daughter an alpha, her mother was a White wolf kidnapped years ago by the Magnus, powerful magic users. The Magnus wanted to start a new race of hybrids who would pit one race against another causing havoc between the wolves and vampires, destroying them all.

When White Knight begins, Shay is being held prisoner by these hybrids, two sisters who happen to be her half sisters, she is desperate to escape but there are many obstacles in her way.

Knight McQueen is a White Wolf, an empathic loup that feels the weight of the world. He is anxious about Shay but knows he can't leave to find her, he is the center of much of the chaos that surrounds the Run and if he leaves he will disappear into the hands of the hybrids. The danger wraps around this group as they fight to bring their world back from destruction.

I am thoroughly invested in this series, I have enjoyed meeting the families in these communities, laughed and cried as they fight against a group of hybrids that are out of control and ready to destroy all but themselves.

The three books are closely connected and most of the characters are those we met in book one, and there is a continuous story arc throughout and although each book ends with one couple achieving their HEA, the overall threat to the wolves continued. A reader could pick up the last book, as the author does reiterate the story, but the full effect is achieved with reading all three books as each is entertaining in its own right.

Shay is a strong heroine, the proud daughter of an alpha. When we first met her in book one she had experienced a horrific ordeal and Knight was spending time with her. In the second book she in turn helps Knight with an overwhelming test and they bond as no other. Unfortunately in the end she was kidnapped and the Run was in chaos. Knight is desperate to find her but is unable to leave, yet she is resilient and escapes on her own with a little help from some unexpected predators.

Knight has suffered greatly all through the trilogy, he is the pawn in the center of the turmoil and blames himself for the deaths and destruction that has followed them. Yet he is also a strong hero, the son of an alpha who has his brothers to help when he is overwhelmed. As a White wolf his empathic abilities take a toll on him and he is often torn in two because of what he needs and what the community needs.

Shay and Knight spend much of the beginning of the story apart but the bond is strong between them and they know how they feel toward each other. When they are finally reunited there is still a huge threat hanging over their world so there is not much time to work on their relationship.

Secondary characters are key to this story and they appear often throughout, I love the relationship that the three brothers have, they are there for each other through thick and thin, even though they often fight, just like brothers. The pace is non-stop from beginning to end and there are several twists and turns to keep you going. New and old threats pop up and you are not sure who is good and who is evil, very entertaining. I highly recommend the entire series, they are dark paranormal stories with romance thrown in each book but the emphasis is on the overall story arc of good versus evil that continues throughout the series with a satisfactory ending that made me smile.

This is the final part of the Cornerstone Run trilogy and it's the one that readers have been waiting for, Knights story! Yes that lovely white wolf who has suffered so much finally gets a chance to prove to himself that he's not completely lost but still capable of rising to any challenge. Knight is a survivor but the torments that he has experienced haunt him and now with Shay the woman he believes is his mate missing he feels himself splintering . Knight as a white wolf is the lynchpin has pack mates rely on and it's hard always feeling that he is just a commodity . Knight is pulled in so many directions but the threat from the hybrids cannot be ignored and taking his mate Shay is unacceptable !
Shay cannot quite believe that she is related to the monsters that have needlessly slaughtered so many . Now there are just two hybrids left and they've taken her prisoner but even though they are Shays half sisters there's no love between them. Shay is locked in a room with a sickly baby that she's forced to look after but has no idea just who the child's parents are. Growing weaker each day Shay has to escape but she wears a collar that prevents her from tapping into her wolf . Shay needs to shift if she's ever to survive and her time is running out.
I don't wish t give the plot away but this is a story full of anguish. Knight is in a bad way in his head when this story starts and it's clear he needs to exorcise his mental ghosts but with so much upheaval around him he is trapped in a very dark place. To find his true mate only to have her taken from him only adds to his woe but this is a romance so fear not my fellow readers as twists aplenty add to the story! The author lets her characters suffer initially but Shay is an Alphas daughter and a strong black wolf to boot so there's no way she will ever go down without a fight . Overall this was an incredible instalment that packed in emotional moments , action and even romance. It was fabulous to catch up with the characters from the first two books and indeed they are integral to the plot of this book. These characters have had such a difficult journey with death and destruction dogging their footsteps . It's been quite a complex idea with first twins and then triplets introduced to the mixture and the author still has one or two surprises to share with her readers here. Insane hybrids , evil Magi and even Vampires are part of the world that Ms Meade has created but it's her wolves that leave this reader an emotional wreck one moment and then cheering madly the next ! I loved this trilogy and can't wait to find out what this talented author will delight her readers with next.

white wolf
(Source | Artist signed as 'Lyrica')
White Wolf wraps up Kelly Meade's (AKA Kelly Meding) Cornerstone Run Trilogy. The story picks up about a month after Gray Bishop - Shay had been taken by the hybrids and Cornerstone is on the hunt to finish them once and for all.
"I brought some of that darkness back with me. I still feel it sometimes, deep down in my soul, waiting to swallow me up again."
Knight's been struggling with a great deal of loss ... loss of run members, Shay's capture, and the loss of control he faced during and after his time held by the hybrids. As the run's White Wolf, responsible for soothing the emotions of the pack, he tends to bury his emotions. This has cost him a great deal, so it's no surprise that in WHITE KNIGHT they come bubbling to the surface. This release was necessary for the healing process to begin.

Healing. While WHITE KNIGHT features battles, loss and pain, healing was the dominant theme for this wolf's story. Knight, never an alpha but strong none the less, spent much of the book looking inside himself for the strength to forgive himself, accept his past as well as the love he so rightly deserves. Shay, Black Wolf, daughter of an alpha, and transplant in Cornerstone (introduced in Gray Bishop), held more of the spotlight in this book and I found myself liking her more and more. Her parts definitely held the story together for me.

If Black Rook laid the foundation and Gray Bishop laid waste then WHITE KNIGHT cleared away the rubble. The reveal of their true enemy kinda snuck up on me, which isn't to say that's a bad thing. But, the ending and its resolution felt a touch rushed to me. That said, Mead did a good of job wrapping up lose ends. Thankfully, she also included a much needed and greatly appreciated epilogue to provide one last look at the run's bright future.

This is the story I have been waiting for since the first book in the series and I am happy to say that it satisfies. Poor Knight was really put through the wringer in the earlier installments. He was kidnapped by the hybrid triplets, who raped him and forced him to father a baby. His pack was betrayed. His father, murdered. He nearly lost himself to a forced shift. And now, his mate has been kidnapped. The events of the past two months are taking their toll, but all he can think about is getting Shay back from the hybrids.

As the story begins, Shay isn’t doing very well either. She has been a prisoner for a month. She is underfed and weakened further by the silver laced collar that prevents her from shifting. We quickly learn more about the family dynamic that lead to her capture and a mysterious baby she is forced to take care of.

I don’t want to give too much away, but suffice it to say, she doesn’t stay a prisoner for a large part of the book. The bulk of the story follows her return to Cornerstone run, the development of her relationship with Knight, and the endgame of the hybrid/ magus storyline.

The relationship element of the story was easily my favorite in the series. Knight has so much to work through and Shay is the perfect balm to his hurts. It takes time, which I appreciate. One of my complaints about the earlier books was the breakneck speed of emotional development and attachments. Knight and Shay have been percolating for awhile. –I also appreciate the way Meade dealt with the aftermath of his sexual assault, which sadly was the encounter that took his virginity. This is given the attention and care it deserves, though I might have liked a little more emphasis on the loss of both characters’ virginity in their first love scene. It was good, but I think I would have liked a little more fumbling/ discovery/ wonder.

As much I enjoyed the romance, the larger story arc was just fair. I felt like Brynn’s father was a kind of cookie-cutter villain. The hybrids were caricatures with no depth. And the baby/ brother elements felt virtually superfluous. The only development that shed any real light on what brought the hybrids to this path involved one that was already dead. It felt kind of… hollow.

It had a satisfying ending. Almost a little too sweet, but the book was dark enough, so I was ok with it.

Mon avis en Français

My English review

After having a great time with the two first volumes, I was curious about this third and final book, highlighting the history between Shay and Knight. It must be said that this novel continues the story that we had followed so far and we find as always with great pleasure all the characters we met earlier.

From the beginning of the novel, the two characters are separated and manage their own problems away from each other. Knight must continue to live with the guilt he feels at all times, trying to do everything to find her soul mate. Yet without her, our hero finds himself in a hellish fall that seems endless. Meanwhile, Shay has to take care of a baby she does not know the identity, a child who has no name but more than that her sisters also prevent her from turning, not even thinking how it is something indispensable for her to do that to not become crazy. But delaying the deadline puts her in a terrible suffering, both physical and mental and Shay is determined to change that.

Through this new story, we discover more about Shay, her extraordinary family and the past of the hybrids. We begin to understand why these girls have gone crazy, why their desire for revenge has taken over everything, but it does not change the fact that we do not forgive them for what they did. Knight, with the help of the young woman, will have to accept himself, to let guilt behind him and move forward, all this with confessing to everyone the truth about what happened before. His history with Shay is also very touching for all it induces. They take their time together, they don’t want to rush things even if they’re already really close. I loved the fact that the author didn’t rush everything and gave them time to finally adapt to each other.

Of course as I said, we also follow the characters highlighted in previous volumes, and I was happy to see how they were evolving and it’s a pleasure to see them all so happy.

In conclusion it was a new great novel, and I was happy with this whole trilogy.

The conclusion to the Cornerstone Run Trilogy is here. Knight has not had an easy few months. He was held prisoner and raped by the hybrids and then had to deal with the fact that one of them got pregnant and was killed by his pack. Now the woman he loves, Shay, has been kidnapped by the hybrids and he wants her back. Shay is the daughter of an alpha. Her whole run was murdered by the hyrids in book one and she has had to crawl out of the emotional hole that those events left her in. Now her crazy half sister has kidnapped her.

We get a lot of feelings in WHITE KNIGHT. Knight has to work through what he's been through and Shay has grown a lot and is now in a position to finally fight for herself and her relationship with Knight. The relationship between Knight and Shay has been a long time coming and I enjoyed watching it unfold. The pace of book 3 is a lot slower than book 1 and 2. The couple isn't together for the whole book and that made this book feel a little different than the previous books as well.

This has been a great trilogy to follow. Book 1, Black Rook, was my favorite of the three, but I really loved the connections and continuation of events that all of them brought. I enjoyed getting to know each and every character and I loved that we still got to follow each couple even when their books were over or hadn't started yet. i was happy with the conclusion that WHITE KNIGHT brought the conflict to and I really loved the glimpse we got a few months down the road at the end. I hate to see the characters go, but they all got their happily ever after and I couldn't ask for more.

WOW!! What an ending! I've been basically almost in tears reading this series, and Knight is finally getting himself together. All of his attack is finally coming to light, he's getting his mate back, and he's pulling himself together so he can help stop the threat that's been killing off his family. He's the white wolf, and everyone needs him to hang on, because they all expect him to be there for them. But now, he needs someone to be there for him. And yes this one is dark, and touchy, but this is finally the happy one, the conclusion to the magnificent series. We get healing, and love, and someway to move on in a good way.

Knight has always been a little more submissive compared to his brothers. Not because he isn't an alpha, but because he needs to be the emotional anchor for everyone. And now, his need to rescue Shay. But Shay has a lot she is finding out while missing and she's going to do whatever it takes to make it right. Knight and Shay kind of complete each other. Shay steps up for Knight when he can't and Knight holds Shay together when she needs it. She's so courageous and though he story also makes me cry like you wouldn't believe, she's going to help heal Knight and he'll help her heal in the process. Oh and I love how everyone welcomes Shay into the fold!

This was the perfectly wrapped up ending to the trilogy. No major questions left unanswered. No plot holes. And in the end, you aren't going to hate the bad guys as much as you want to, and you're going to love the good guys more than you thought you would. And don't worry, there's even a little ending that I didn't see coming ;) I seriously loved loved this one! WELL DONE!! 5 PAWS!!

I received a digital copy in exchange for an honest review from Berkley.

When I got White Knight I really didn't know that it was a part of a series/trilogy and its important to note that reading the previous books is an important factor in understanding the who, what and why. I would highly suggest starting at the beginning before investing in White Knight.
That being said I can't say enough great things about this book. There is so much positive reinforcement and redemption that Miss Meade brings into play that the heart warms to the many forms of healing she serves both her characters and her readers. White Knight is a heart whole story with a lesson in life and love and I fully support the message she delivers.

There was so much to love about this book. Since the moment we met Knight, I knew he was going to be my favorite of the brothers. What he goes through in the first book and throughout the second, I could not wait to really see things from his perspective. The man was hurting and I really loved seeing him get a chance to heal. I loved the relationship he had with Shay. We got to see it grow throughout the trilogy while also watching her heal from what happened to her in the first book.

This book was filled with action as well. There’s some intrigue and betrayal. We got to see more of Brynn’s Magus father in this one as well. We also got more of Devlin, who is a secondary character that I absolutely adore. There’s so much to love about this book, these characters and this trilogy as a whole. I 100% recommend it to anyone who enjoys urban fantasy, paranormal romance, wolves, shifters, etc. It’s definitely worth a read.

Although I've rated each book in this trilogy 4 stars, this is secretly my favourite. I do love the dark and sometimes ruthless nature of Meade's storytelling, but here she shows us her gentler side with the her characterisation of her two most broken and fragile characters, Knight and Shay. It's also the most satisfying because we see the culmination of the overall story arc which has carried through from Black Rook and Gray Bishop. An excellent read!

Review originally posted at http://fictionvixen.com/review-white-...

I’ve been eagerly anticipating the final installment of the Cornerstone Run trilogy. While each book tells the story of a different brother, Knight is at the center of the main plot and the one who has been victimized the most. This urban fantasy trilogy revolves around the McQueen brothers and their run’s battle against a group of loup/vampire and loup/magi hybrid sisters who are determined to extinguish them. Knight is a white wolf and therefore the only loup capable of breeding with the sisters. He continues to be emotionally battered by his kidnapping and rape at the hands of the hybrids and harbors extreme guilt over a situation he considers his fault. The only person able to bring him any comfort or relief, and who his wolf has come to consider his mate, has been kidnapped and is in the very hands of his enemies.

When Shay Butler lost her father and her entire run in an unexpected attack she was taken in by the Cornerstone Run. Severely traumatized, only Knight managed to bring her back from the brink and help her begin to heal. It was quite a shock when she found out that she shares genetics with the very people who have terrorized the loup community, but now she has found a new home, a half-sister in Brynn and her wolf a mate. She and Knight have been through a lot together in a short amount of time and have developed a devotion for each other.

At the end of Gray Bishop she is kidnapped and when White Knight opens is still missing. Knight is frantic to find her and is just really coming to admit to himself what exactly she means to both him and his wolf. His run is still grieving over the loss of their beloved alpha while still learning to adjust to Bishop being the new alpha and there being so many humans and half-breeds joining their community. There are only two remaining hybrid sisters to worry over, but all three of the McQueen brothers know the danger won’t end until they are dead.

This series has captured and kept my attention right from the beginning. I love the new take on werewolves, vampires and magic users and have especially enjoyed the differences in expectation and social standing according to the colors of wolves. Each of these brothers have battled to be their own man and defy their run’s traditions to marry and mate who they fall in love with. They’ve become the men they were meant to be. Knight has been to the darkest of places inside himself and is still trying to find his way out. I knew Shay would be a strong heroine, but she really steps up to the plate in order to help him heal, even while dealing with some pretty stunning revelations and rescuing herself when she finds herself kidnapped and trapped.

As much as I was looking forward to Knight’s story, I can honestly say I was a bit disappointed. He wasn’t the “hero” who saved his lady and seemed to spend most of this book trying to work through his many feelings of pain and guilt. After the last two books, which were action packed and where the pages just flew by, White Knight had a lot of dialogue. A lot. Mostly of Knight trying to get the words out to his mate and brothers about his feelings. I do think Ms. Meade wrapped up all the plot threads satisfactory and fans of this series will be happy with the conclusion, but it felt like a much slower pace and didn’t keep my interest as fully as the previous two releases. I am thankful Ms. Meade included a rather sweet epilogue that left each of these characters in a good place and provided the closure I needed to this trilogy. Final Grade- C+

White Knight is the final book in Kelly Meade's Cornerstone Run Trilogy featuring werewolves and a couple of hybrid werewolf/vampire sisters who are out for blood. Readers who have followed the series have been waiting for Knight McQueen's story with baited breath. This brother and his empathetic abilities has taken the heart of many readers and this installment in the series focuses on Knight and his soon to be mate, Shay. The romance is both touching and sexy and the Meade ties up every arc and thread in the series with a nice big bow. A great addition to the series!

This series is one that has quite of bit of darkness to it. It reminds me more of an Urban Fantasy title than a Paranormal Romance for that reason. It has that dark, gritty kind of energy that is so prevalent in Urban Fantasy, yet there is always a powerful love story at the heart of each novel, including the final book, White Knight.

Knight's soon to be mate, Shay was taken prisoner by the hybrids at the end of book two and readers have been waiting to see what happens for quite a while now. Her relationship with Knight has already been established so readers aren't necessarily getting a happy-ever-after story, but more of continuation of a love story. This book is more about how the couple learns to trust each other, through their struggles, than it is about finding love. They already have it. They just have to learn to trust it.

Knight didn't quite live up to my expectations as a hero. I knew he struggled with his abilities as an empath, but I thought he had more control than he exhibited in this book. In the previous books he had always been this sort of enigma, a mystery that wasn't easy to solve, but in this one, he lost that a little bit and it was hard for me to rationalize both parts of his character. I knew he would be different than the average alpha hero because he was always the one who didn't quite fit the mold, but I wanted more here. I still liked him, I just wanted more.

Shay, however, more than made up for Knight. She was a kick-butt, heroine. Not only did she survive her captivity and keep her sanity, but she seemed to thrive afterwards. She came into her own in the run and was able to be a part of things and even offer suggestions and help to Rook. I loved her tenacity and my heart broke for her and Knight during several parts of this book. It wouldn't be a Cornerstone Run book without some tragedy and dire circumstances and Meade did not disappoint.

Bottom Line:

Meade tied everything up nicely here, doing a fantastic job of making every arc and thread make sense. I wanted to know what happened to so many people and things before the end and Meade gave me a very satisfying finish to a great series! Knight may not have been everything I wanted but he was still a good character. Shay was amazing and it was great to check with old characters and find new ones. A great overall finish!

Kelly Meade concludes the Cornerstone Run Trilogy with the final brother's, Knight, tale. White Knight while told from many different points of view, has a more focused point on Knight and Shay like we've seen from the previous two. And while I have enjoyed this trilogy greatly, for some reason White Knight just didn't live up to the thrills and enjoyment of Black Rook.

Knight is a broken character. He's been hurt in the worst way, but then Shay is a broken character as well. It was sort of fitting that these two would find one another after so much pain had been inflicted upon them. It's been a month since the events of Gray Bishop and Shay has been kidnapped by her "sisters" the half-breeds, and while she's not being harmed in their care, she's not being taken care of either. She's forced to care for an infant that's left in her prison and all the while Shay is collared with silver, unable to change when her quarterly shift is near.

I do have to warn you that the pacing to this one was rather slow. Knight and Shay are separated for a great deal of time. Knight is going crazy with worry over Shay and wants to go out and find her despite the risk to himself. And Shay is trying her best to get back to him as well.

And after some chapters, the two are reunited again, but even then things remain at a slow, steady pace. It's almost painfully slow. You know this is the last book, so you know a showdown with the half-breed sisters is coming, but there's not a lot of buildup to it.

Instead we get a lot more time with Shay and Knight. They each try to work through their issues in order to be together and this was admirable, despite the pacing. I loved how these two characters were able to heal one another. They both endured terrible things and yet, they were still able to find one another through it all.

All things come together in the ending to this one. We finally see some twists and shocks and action in the conclusion! Everything comes to fruition here! And I have to admit to enjoying the ending itself. While I wish the "showdown" could've been drawn out a bit more, I enjoyed seeing where everyone stands in the final ending. It was heartwarming to say the least!

This was a fun trilogy that I enjoyed greatly! There were the ups and downs, but overall it was a fun read! Highly worth reading too should you be in the market for a werewolf read! I loved being able to get to know each brother and watch them through their trials, struggles, and of course, victories! It's a trilogy with emotions going all over the place. I also enjoyed being able to continue to see and be with each brother despite the other two not being in the spotlight. It was a fun and refreshing trilogy!

Overall Rating 4/5 stars

At the end of Gray Bishop, loup-garou Shay Butler, the sole survivor of an attack on her Run two months ago, was kidnapped by her half-sisters, the vampire-loup hybrids Allison and Desiree. In the month since, she’s been kept in a windowless cell with a baby that the sisters force her to care for. The lack of sunlight, proper nutrition and freedom to shift are taking a toll on her sanity and making her desperate to escape, even if it means leaving the infant behind.

Meanwhile, Knight McQueen, her mate in her heart if not yet in real life, is struggling with the trauma of his own abuse by the hybrids and the pressure of being an empathic White Wolf when his people are in turmoil. Missing Shay is only pushing him closer to the edge of a breakdown.

When the Magi leader Archimedes Atwood proposes an alliance with the Loups against the hybrids, the McQueen brothers reluctantly agree. The Magi created the hybrids, who then escaped from their lab and started attacking Loup settlements. Once they’ve finished destroying the Loups, the Magi will be their next targets. And it’s about time that Atwood helped clean up the mess he created.

White Knight is an emotional rollercoaster. I felt like weeping for most of the first half. It probably also needs a huge trigger warning. Not only is Knight a rape survivor, but more information also comes to light about the abuse suffered by the hybrids before they escaped.

Knight and Shay’s romance is a little odd because they’ve both decided that the other is their mate before the book starts. So the story is not about them falling in love, but about them each overcoming their ordeals so they can be together. They bond by helping each other deal with the trauma.

At the end of Black Rook, the first book in the series, I really wanted to know more about the other supernaturals in the Loup’s world. So I was happy that Mead returned to the Magi in this book and answered a lot of questions about the hybrid experiments and Atwood’s involvement. There are also portions of the story told from the other McQueen brothers’ points of view. It was nice to check in with those characters from the previous books, especially Rook and Brynn who play a big role in this one.

I really enjoyed the world of the Cornerstone Run trilogy and the unique twist that Mead gives to some familiar supernatural creatures. I like the fact that these books don’t feel like typical PNR. The romance is often secondary to the overall story. I usually feel like romance series get repetitive, so I found that refreshing. I’d like to see Mead return to this world some day and explore the vampires or the Magi in more depth.

WHITE KNIGHT picks up about a month after the end of GRAY BISHOP and things are not looking good for the Cornerstone Run or the McQueen brothers, especially Knight. Some pretty terrible things have happened to him especially, and if you've read Meade writing as Meading, you'll know from her Dregs City stories that she doesn't pull punches. It isn't easy to be a Meade/Meading character!

For some reason, even though there were two books leading up to the finale, I still had trouble connecting with the characters. I think of the three brothers I empathizes most with Knight. He had the most dumped on him IMO emotionally and physically. Even though we know what happened to him in BLACK ROOK, we finally KNOW for sure in his story. His healing is starting. Shay has a lot to do with that.

Speaking of Shay, she has her own healing to do. While Knight has the most to deal with of the brothers, I think Shay has the most to deal with out of all the characters! That poor black wolf has been through hell and back, and one can only hope she will come through the other side a fighter and a winner. Though with the revelations in WHITE KNIGHT (I know - you are thinking HOW can there be more, but there are!) you are not sure how she will go on.

Even though this story had all the elements that I look for in a good PNR/UF - love, sex, fighting, betrayal, friendship, magic, weres, and a possible HEA (no I won't tell you!!), there was something that didn't quite hit the mark for me. Maybe it was the fact that even though this was Shay/Knight's story there were other POV's sprinkled in (which happened in the previous books as well). Maybe it was that there were some things I didn't feel were tied up as well as I wanted them to be at the end. Maybe I just didn't connect with the characters like I sometimes don't connect with real people. Maybe I just had an off week. Whatever it was mad this book ok and not great for me. But I really do think most fans of PNR/UF will love this story. I really do think for the most part that it was a "It's not you, it's me," kind of relationship.

I wished I would have read the first 2 books in this series before starting this one. Black Rook and Gray Knight are the first 2 and having read those 2 would have helped me a lot with the whole back history that I was missing. I was so confused at first that I had no idea what was happening, but with that said I figured it out pretty quickly and LOVED this book. I can’t wait to go and read the other 2.
The characters were great and well developed. I enjoyed seeing how close everyone was and how willing to die for each other that they were. That is family even if they aren’t family by blood. The ‘Run’ that they live in, is somewhere I would want to be. They fight together, die together, and live together. They make the best out of what life gives them and stand together when they face hardships. And to me that is just amazing.
Shay would have to be my favorite by far. She is strong and fierce, and loyal to a fault. She knows who she is as a woman and where her place is, even when a certain male can’t see it’s by his side. Shay finds her way to freedom and then back to Knight.
Knight has been through a lot. His brother captured, he traded his life for his, he was then raped and that resulted in his rapist getting pregnant, he then is rescued only to have his father and friend killed and his mate kidnapped. Yeah this guy has a lot going on in his head, and yet he makes sure he is always there for those who need him. To me that tells me enough about the type of man Knight is.
The amount of mystery and twists and turns in this book keeps you on the end of your seat. I couldn’t put it down when I started it, even at the parts where I was confused.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

WHITE KNIGHT is a great ending to this series. It has a well-developed story line and characters. Knight McQUEEN is a rare white wolf who is able to calm the wolves around him. He was kidnapped when he was younger by another wolf run(pack). He was recently kidnapped by a group of hybrid vampire/ magi who wanted him to help them have a baby. These women are deranged and will get him at the cost of killing off other wolf runs(packs). Now he has to find his mate Shay Butler who was kidnapped by them a month ago. I loved this book and how Kelly Meade wrapped everything up. I recommend this book to everyone, and I give WHITE KNIGHT 5/ 5 STARS.
