A superbly crafted, exhilarating paranormal fantasy… A stunner.
Allen’s latest is a twisting web of intrigue, romance, and darkness as an enigmatic history professor stumble upon a dark conspiracy. The lone and noble werewolf Caleb Jacobsen is content living his life in shadows as a keen history professor. But when a series of brutal killings rock the city, Caleb knows there are sinister forces behind the killings. As he digs deeper, devastating revelations come to surface, threatening to bring utter destruction. Caleb must get ready to face the darkness, even if it means putting his own life in danger. Allen writes with both heart and soul, and readers will quickly find themselves immersed in his vivid, supernatural world. Ethics, love, pride, courage, truth, and friendship reverberate throughout the narrative, with Allen ramping up both the suspense and the tension as the story moves forward. The plot centers both on Caleb and Marla’s love story and the former’s troubling past. The supernatural manifestations are sketched with perfection while the delicious chemistry between Marla and Caleb and the vivid paranormal backdrop keep the pages turning. Allen drives his complex plot forward with a focus on his fully fleshed-out, interconnected characters: he memorably portrays Caleb who has a strong sense of morals and paranormal instincts and has no qualms about facing evil for the greater good of humanity, even if it means risking his own life. This finely crafted, engrossing werewolf tale supplies plenty of thrills and chills. Readers will be gratified.
