Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

In this Wolf Lake novella Samantha finds an old journal from a flea market. It contains exactly what she is looking for, a map to Wolf Lake. She is determined to check things out to add to her thesis. Her advisor doesn’t seem too supportive with the direction she is taking her research. She doesn’t let it change her mind. She is determined to find Wolf Lake.

She surprises herself when she actually finds the mystical Lake. She walks around looking to see if she can see anything that explains why she found the lake mentioned in stories about werewolves. She hasn’t found anything that really reveals information where the stories started.

Unfortunately she starts feeling like she is being watched. When a large wolf shows up in her camp she is shocked. She is surrounded and herded to where their pack lives. She is shocked at what she sees. She is suddenly thrust into a new magical world she never would have believed exists. She ends up caught in the middle of two rival packs and having nowhere to go.

I liked this book. Sam has no clue what she is walking into. Doesn’t believe a word of what the stories she has been researching say. Her shock and fear are almost tangible. I can just imagine how she looks when the wolf first comes into her camp.

The author pulls you in when she arrives at the lake and how she is being watched. Its definitely got a creepy vibe. The story takes a predicted turn of events but the story is good nonetheless. I like how Sam wins over Nafaris and the pack. She is a unique character. She doesn’t relate well to people yet she takes Maddie under her wing. Sam is very complex and lonely. Her fears of not fitting in anywhere are front and center.

The ending set the stage for the next installment. It was a great way for the author to the leave the reader wanting more. I want to see what happens next. The only thing that I didn’t really care for was the mentioned attraction and kiss between Sam and Maddie. That could have been left out in my opinion. I give this book a 3.5 out of 5.
