Legend says his eyes portend the end of the world...or perhaps, the beginning...

Born with one blue eye and one green, Eyulf was abandoned by his pack as an infant and has never understood why, or what he is...

Varya is fiercely loyal to the Great North Pack, which took her in when she was a teenager. While out on patrol, Varya finds Eyulf wounded and starving and saves his

I stayed up until the early hours to finish this which I really hadn't expected to do and I went to bed unable to sleep feeling bereft. From the first few pages I honestly felt no empathy for the heroine Varya as she was cold, hard and just felt lacking in empathy. I guess the reason I kept going was simply because she clearly felt enormous loyalty to the Pack, their continued survival and the Law. There's a scene right at the beginning that just felt so very wrong to this reader and then and th ...more

Forever Wolf is the best and most emotional book of the series for me. I still feel emotional when I read this quote:
Listen to me. Look at me. Love me. Make life with me.
After having read the first two books of The Legend of All Wolves series I considered Forever Wolf to be a comfort book to me. Reaching the end of the story, I realized how true that was.

Forever Wolf storytelling has an Old World mixture of Viking, Inuit, and Native American feeling to it. Life seen throu

I read this book over a month ago and it sheer laziness isn’t the only reason it has taken me until now to review it. I still feel like I am recovering. Forever Wolf is the final book in The Legend of All Wolves series (I think!) and not only this book, but this series, has left a huge impression on me. The whole series, but this book in particular, was an emotional ride. I finished this book shedding a lot of tears. And not because something bad happens – although it isn’t quite the HEA you are ...more

”How could anyone think his eyes were a curse? Blue and green. The promise of heaven and earth.”

I tried to read this book last year but couldn't fully get into it, plus I read a couple of spoilers about the ending which made me even more hesitant to pick it up. However, after receiving an ARC of the next book I knew I had to read Forever Wold because there is a plot that continues throughout the series, and in my opinion I would've missed a part of the storyline if I skipped this book.

Yo. This... I don't ... I don't think I'd call this a romance.
Which - first of all - like... ]

Gosh. I ... don't know that I'd say this book is a romance.

Maria Vale’s The Legend of All Wolves series is a unique entry in the broad and popular world of shifter romances. No one would define it as cute or fun, so if that’s the kind of paranormal romance you want, you’ll have to look elsewhere. But if you like a meaty story full of gristle to chew on, you’ll want to dive into this enthralling Scandinavian inspired tale of the men and women who’ve survived and thrived in a world where humans have taken over the role of apex predator. In Forever Wolf, t ...more

Forever Wolf is the third and final book in Maria Vale’s Legend of All Wolves series. Although I didn’t like how it ended, it was a very good book. The series was wrapped up in a nice bow. There was a lot of additional information learned in Forever Wolf that added to the overall lore of these wolves that humans would refer to as werewolves.

As with the first two books, the main theme of Forever Wolf is the unlikely coupling of a pack member and an outsider. And to be clear, if

We were back in the Homelands for this one and I think that's just how I like this series. I like all the wolfy behaviors and customs. My reaction to the couple is mixed though. I didn't feel I got to know him anywhere near enough and, while I liked her, I don't understand why she fell so hard for him so quickly, other than being another arctic wolf (and I like you just because you're the same race as me seems a squinky basis for a relationship). Having said that, I liked the book but was disapp ...more

This book... This book will DESTROY you!

Like the other books in this series, this was amazing. Now that my feelings have some simmered, I can sort of put some words together for a review.

Forever wolf, made me feel, made me cry, swoon and laugh.
It pulled every emotion from me, and I was ruined when the last word was read.

Legend of all Wolves #3, Oh My Gosh this book! There is so much I love about this book and this series. The narration, seeing the pack through Varya's eyes and seeing the transition of her feelings about them at the beginning of the book to the end of the book. How in depth the wolf's history goes especially with the norse mythology. Each of the characters past and present it was easy to connect with them, with it being in the first person POV you get to hear all the internal conflict

This was one of the best books I've read lately. This book made me feel excited, frustrated, hopeful, sad, confused and that ending blew me away and left me raw! It wasn't a perfect story but it was beautiful. It wasn't the ideal ending but it was perfect. It made me cry last night when the story ended and it still made me cry this morning when I thought about it. A great finale to an outstanding series. I highly recommend these book

Suzi (Obsessive Reading Disorder)
This is the third book of the series and so far I have been so intrigued, not only by the world building but also by the richness found in the wolves of the Great North Pack. The description of this book is vague enough that I wasn't sure what to expect. It is told from Varya's POV.

I admit, I spent a good two thirds of the book scratching my head--what is going on? I felt no connection to Varya at all. She was so detached. Not quite feral but really not bonded with any other wolf. Her only loya
Victoria (Eve's Alexandria)
A Wolf Apart will probably always be my favourite (because, Elijah) but Forever Wolf is the most emotionally and thematically complex of the series so far. Here the individual love story is a subplot to the much bigger and broader story of the love between members of the Pack, and its continued fight for homeland and heritage. I was absolutely wrung out by the end and, although some aspects of the denouement didn’t work for me, the overall arc of the book was absolutely satisfying. Roll on book ...more

The Legend of All Wolves

I loved this entire series. The world building was magnificent. Riveting. Engaging. All consuming.

Starting with Tiberius and Quicksilver, moving on to Elijah and Thea (then adding the darling pups, John, Sigeburg, Solveig and Theo “the runt’s runt”) and finally Varya and Eyulf—I loved them all.

This series is going into rotation. I can’t just read it once and forget about it. Impossible! I recommend it highly!

Wow, didn't see that ending coming--and yet it's simply perfect for both the book and the trilogy. My advice? Start with the first book (The Last Wolf) and read them all. I have a book hangover now in the best way.
Maria Vale is an amazing writer--I can't wait to see what she does next.

Taking the female were viewpoint, this is a better book for me than the second in the series. We spend almost all the pages in the upstate New York area, where a planned gas pipeline is going to rip through the weres' private lands. As they have to shift at full moon they are vulnerable to human hunters, and they also have enemies in the shifter fraternity.

One of the guarding wolves discovers an injured lone wolf who was rejected as a pup and grew up without a pack. He's made his way this far,

Thank you NetGalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca for an advanced readers copy of this book. I wanted to read this when I saw Kirkus reviews give this a starred review. Although, I am usually very thorough I missed that this was the third and final book in a series. For the most part I completely lost and I am learning these paranormal fantasy/romances are no longer something I am interested in reading. The one thing the author did was add a lot of folklore which I really did like. However for me a ...more

Maria Vale's trilogy of paranormal romances started out fairly typical of the genre. Then kept getting darker and finally dumped the HEA (happily ever after) for a probably "happy-ish now" ending. More intriguing is the deep dive into a single character POV of this story. If you're looking for werewolves, Old English, and a Viking woman warrior sensibility, there's a bit of that in this. But it is something very particular to the author's worldview--and that makes her an author to keep track of. ...more

Awesome read!

Forever Wolf was a wonderful read. I love the emotions and intensity packed into these books. While I enjoyed this one I'm conflicted about the ending. I'm not sure exactly how I feel but I will most certainly be reading the next book in the series. I'm hooked on this series and definitely recommend them.

There are shifter novels, and then there is the Legend of all Wolves series. Maria Vale creates an utterly unique world with creatures that are not humans who take on wolf form, but wolves who live 'in skin'. Gritty stories without the saccharine tropes so often found in this genre. Wonderful! No spoilers from me. You need to read for yourself. Enjoy! 😉🐺 ...more

I won this book in a goodreads drawing.

DNF--Some sort of shifter romance, but the narrator's pseudo Linda Hamilton from Terminator 2 voice proved too tiresome to tolerate.
I loved this book. My heartbeats have returned to normal, I've dried the tears from my cheeks and I've managed to get my thoughts together. You can read my full review on my WordPress blog, Flora's Musings...

So, what did I like about it?
I am already a fan of Maria Vale’s writing style; her stories are very easy to read and feel graceful and full bodied. The books in this series are unlike any I've read before; I think that her stories are intelligent and feel well researched and I really enjoy h
The story was a mixture of joy and sorrow to read.

So many different themes are touched upon in this book ranging from acceptance to hateful prejudice before its emotionally wrenching final chain of events ending this story arc.

I received a complimentary copy of this book via Netgalley but all opinions provided are my own.

I’ve got that anxious, excited feeling I used to get in English class because I was bursting with stuff to say, and it’s about Maria Vale’s Forever Wolf. This isn't the first time I've thought this about one of her books: I’ve never read a romance novel like this before.

Forever Wolf is the third in Vale’s The Legend of All Wolves series, and it’s beautiful. It’s also the darkest book in a ro
The only reason this book isn’t getting 5 * is because of the ending which made me ugly cry. Aaaarrrggghhh Maria Vale, why would you do me like that??? Not cool, sh*t now I am thinking about the cold, which makes me think of how Varya always described Eyulf aaaaannnd I’m crying again

From the beginning of the series, I have admired the unique take on the wolves that can wear skin. This is truly a unique world. After reading book three, I am now into the head of one of the bravest wolves of the Great North Pack. This is what the author does. With the first person perspective, Ms. Vale has told a story through a remarkable character and I am even more in love with this series.

And this story blew me away.
