There’s no escaping a Dire Wolf on the hunt…

Even as the playboy of the Dire Wolves, Levi isn’t exactly a soft touch. He likes his liquor, his women, and his photographs…but he also has an affinity for sharp knives and claws. What starts as an assignment to investigate humans finding their way onto a pack’s land quickly becomes something darker, more dangerous, and a whole

Since I really liked the first book in the Devil’s Dire series I had high hopes for Savage Sanctuary. Unfortunately, although not a bad book, it just didn’t deliver on those high hopes for me.

Although the heroine in the first book was strong and played things smart, Amy hit the opposite end of the spectrum– stubborn and overly independent. With twelve older brothers and an alpha father, I completely understood her need to distance herself a bit. Unfortunately, when problems came up she was too s
5 Awesome Stars

Levi and Amy's story are definitely awesome!! We met Levi back in Savage Surrender and his story was intriguing. He received a call from lck who has a little human problems. The Omega in that pack is worried when they can scent of a human near by. Guess who's? Now say buh-bye to your playboy ways Levi ;).

Amy is independent and down to earth person. I love the way she handles Levi's instinctive need to protect her.

This book is packed with suspense, action, drama and some serious
The Dire Wolf playboy Levi is up for a solo mission. He is determined to behave himself, stay on target, keep 'it' in his pants and not get distracted. Amy just wants to run her diner and have a life away from her Alpha father and 12 brothers.

So how does Levi handle his job of protecting the Omega... Well after getting 'tangled' at first encounter they begin their run for sanctuary hiding and evading those after Amy.

Levi has always been seen as the kid none of his fellow brothers truly trust that he can get things done just as well as them so when a solo Mission comes along he takes it up just to prove them all wrong. What he wasn't expecting was find his mate.

Amy has 12 older brothers, she knows how to take care of herself and how to stand her ground. When danger finds its way onto her doorstep she'll have to accept a little help, of course it makes it a little easier to accept when it comes from her mate.

Levi and Amy

Levi is considered the kid of the Dire Pack and the one that always messes around and doesn’t take the missions seriously. That is until he meets Omega Amy, everything changes the instant he realizes she’s his mate. He will do everything to protect her.
Lynn Thinking out loud
I liked this book and this series. I thought the ending could have been cleaned up a little. We didn't see any of Amy's brothers react to her being mated. I mean she had 12 brothers and she was the baby.
Another fun $0.99 ebook...I liked the characters much more in this one! But...plot...who needs plot! Trashy werewolf romance for the win!
I'm starting to like this author's writing style especially after the first 2 Dire Wolves books, so far loving these books. The male lead is the best mix of overbearing alpha but sweet/endearing and the female is independent but not obnoxiously so.

Love these dire wolves. This is a great tie in to the Feral Breed world and I enjoy how the characters overlap. It's exciting and leaves you wanting for the next book.
Fate Always Wins!

All the Feral Breed-related stories deliver different levels of anxiety during battles, but Savage Sanctuary even upped that! Scummy Zeke and his band of inbred humans gave new meaning to the term “playing dirty”, and it did me give me pause to be concerned for the Dire warriors. (Silly me!)

I love the battle scenes, not just because you get to see the beast shifter unleashed, but also because it’s where the women show what they’re truly made of. This author NEVER fails to delive
Fantastic Book!!!

Levi a Dire Wolf who loved to party, he also loved his photographs, sharp knives and claws. His Dire brothers didn't take him seriously so when an assignment lead him to investigate the humans finding their way onto a pack's land in Hope Ridge, North Carolina. He didn't hesitate.

When he reached his destination, things became more dangerous than the Dire wolf expected. Especially when he met a gorgeous and sassy woman by the name of Amy.

Levi to the throne for all his pop culture references. Love that boy.

I’m not really sure how to write this review, to be honest with you. This story is littered with humor and sexiness and quite good action. It’s also got an adorable Dire wolf and a kickass independent omega.

I like the set up for this one. Levi has his mission to find out what’s going on with the Appalachian pack’s human stalkers while Amy is doing everything she can to maintain her independence, tending to her flourishing busin

WOW! Amy sure knows how to use a frying pan. A woman after my own heart. There's more than one way to use it, as Levi found out when she clocked him across the head with it . Can we say love at first strike....I crack myself up...ha ha ha. Able knew he had to keep an eye out for his baby sister. Levi knew he had to follow the rules and protect the Omega first before helping Abel save his sister. Oh yeah, Abel forgot to mention that the Omega and his sister was the same person.

Savage Sanctuary: A Dire Wolves Mission (The Devil's Dires #2) by Ellis Leigh
I bought this book from Amazon.

A pack in the Appalachian Mountains has found human track circling pack territory, but because the pack has an Omega in their midst, the threat cannot be ignored. NALB turns to the Dire Wolves, and Leviathan, the youngest of the seven, volunteers for the job. Little does he know that the mission will take him to meet his destiny...

I thought the danger to the Omega shewolves was over with the end of the Feral Breed Motorcycle Club series, but turns out no matter what happens, there's always peril

This one was my absolute favorite so far! Can I please take Levi home with me??? I've enjoyed all the Feral Breed, Feral Breed Followings and now the Dire Wolves but Levi is my favorite!

Levi doesn't seem to take most things seriously. His good nature, charm, and good looks seem to get him out of a lot of trouble or one should say into trouble as well but nothing seems to faze him. he bounces around from one good time to another without a care in the world other than his dire wolf brothers.

This is one of the BEST series ever in the history of shifter books! Completely original, new type of wolf, well written, and (get those fans out) sexy. 2nd book in the series and it's completely different from the first book with sexy Bez (just had to get his name in there). Well, except for Levi is a Dire Wolf too. He's the kid of the group, the lover, the joker ( he's a midnight toker, jk, sorry) but a lot of that changes when he's given a job to do.

This was an awesome dance of intrigue and I didn’t even know it! Savage Sanctuary is more than just any other shifter book.

Amy & Levi find themselves drawn together while fighting an unseen enemy. Levi is living fast & loose along with his pack brothers. They’re called on when things are bad. He’s been called in to help a pack and things are definitely going to get rough. Amy really learned how to stand up for herself with having 12 brothers. And she’s going to need that if she’s going

Levi is a hunk, he knows it and uses that to get the women. Human or not Levi being a ladies man seems to put the rest of his crew in danger, but Levi doesn't see it that way. So to prove to his fellow dires he accepted a mission that should be simple. Keep the humans away from the wolf den of a small pack. Scope things out and if he needs help call in his brothers.

Amy is the youngest gest I her family of too many over protective brothers. She just needs some extra space and a chance to be herse

Another good book in this series, bring on the rest.
Poor old Levi, treated like the idiot baby brother by his pack. I think he did very well all things considered, especially when you get to the end and it all comes out as to what is going on. No one could have seen that coming. His pack sure didn’t.
Loved Amy, feisty, smart and her own woman but more than able to be his mate and balance Levi.
12 brothers, that is a series in and of itself.

Levi finally finds his 'home' in Amy. With 12 brothers, she is an Omega that can take care of herself. However, he is a Dire Wolf and it is his duty to protect her. She owns a little diner in a sweet little town near her family and pack. They don't like it that she is so independent, but she insists on living on her own. They can live with that until a human scent track is discovered near their lands. Calling in for help, her Alpha father doesn't realize who he will be calling to protect his dau ...more

I absolutely ADORE Levi and Amy! He's so funny and full of life. He's the "youngest" of the Dire Wolves, and they don't really think he should have too much responsibility, but when a new case of an Omega comes up, Levi offers to take lead. He wants to prove that he can handle situations just like his brothers. What he doesn't count on is the Omega he's called in to protect is his fated mate.

From the time he meets Amy, sparks fly. She's headstrong and wonderful and meets Levi on all things. The

Ellis Leigh is an auto-buy!!

Amy and Levi's story was just another win on the trip through Ellis' imagination! After all the Feral Breed books and stories, and now two Devil's Dires books, I expected no less.

If you haven't tried an Ellis Leigh book yet, you really should. So far, the Devil's Dires seem like they could be read as stand alone books, if you choose to start with the Feral Breed books, you should really go in order. That includes the Gathering series, and Feral Breed Followings shoul
