Lucasz is the last of his kind. A sole Wolf-lord in search of his brother who went missing while venturing on the mountains. He doesn't know the terrain, but Ren does. He needs her to find his brother. There are lots of dark creatures in the forest and even darker ones appear as they travel. With their group consisting of three humans, a Wolf-lord, the queen of the forest, a wolf, and a lynx, they're in for some excitement. This journey is like no other and they must put aside their differences to see their missions through. But what happens if trust is misplaced? Especially when it's such a fickle thing.
DON'T CALL THE WOLF is a beautifully written novel that reads like a dark fairytale written in gold ink. The words dance off the page and the characters are given breath. Ren is a strong-willed queen and won't let anyone deter her from her job of protecting the forest. Lucasz is a hard-headed Wolf-lord that wants to find his brother before its too late. The closer the two become, the harder it is for Lucasz to turn a blind eye from what's happening in the forest. But secrets trail behind them in the shadows and when all is revealed, a person's true nature is shown. I loved this story and the writing style is unlike anything I've ever read. It's both haunting and alluring and captivated my attention from the first chapter.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of fantasy, shifters, strong queens, dragons, and romance. I look forward to more from Aleksandra Ross.
