#BookReview of "The Lonely Wolf" by Monica La Porta

Happy Release Day to Monica La Porta! The Lonely Wolf, book 6 in her Immortals series, is out today! Kindle readers can grab a copy HERE.

I'm a big fan of Monica's work, and while all of her Immortal novels have been fast-paced, and full of mystery and romance, this one really tops them all!

A forbidden love affair between Ludwig and Quintilius, an angel and an alpha werewolf, is threatened when Ludwig is promoted to archangel. At the same time, the alpha's long lost son is discovered, but the young wolf comes with his own mountain of troubles. As a member of the Reds, a fearsome werewolf gang, his involvement in a vampire assassination attempt puts him in hot water with the Immortal Council. To make matters worse, his wolf leads him to his soulmate, only to find that she's betrothed to another. 

A happy ending often seems impossible for La Porta's characters, but she leaves just enough hope and intrigue to keep those pages turning. This is definitely my favorite of the Immortals series, and I can't wait for the next one!

Monica La Porta is an Italian who landed in Seattle several years ago. Despite popular feelings about the Northwest weather, she finds the mist and the rain the perfect conditions to write. Being a strong advocate of universal acceptance and against violence in any form and shape, she is also glad to have landed precisely in Washington State. 

She is the author of The Ginecean Chronicles, a dystopian/science fiction series set on the planet Ginecea where women rule over a race of enslaved men and heterosexual love is considered a sin. She also published two other series: the futuristic love story across the universe, Elios & Gaia, narrated in two books; and the paranormal romance/urban fantasy series The Immortals set in Rome. Stop by her blog to read about her miniatures, sculptures, paintings, and her beloved beagle, Nero. Sometimes, she also posts about her writing.
