Review: Legend of the White Wolf by Terry Spear

In this fourth in Spear's series, Private Eye Cameron MacPherson and Faith O'Mallery are both on quests that lead them into the world of magical wolves?

Cameron arrives in the Canadian Arctic to search for his partners in his P.I. business who are late returning from a hunting trip. Faith is there to discover what her father had seen in the same area years earlier that had made him lose touch with reality?

The two tumble into an icy world of enemies bent on destroying the lupus garou kind. As they turn into lupus garou themselves, and bond with the pack that only they can rescue from destruction, Cameron and Faith find their soul mates in each other.

My Review 

So this is the fourth book on Heart Of The Wolf Series of Terry Spear. Even when this is one of the better books of this series, to be honest I still don't know why I keep reading this series. LoL... Okay, that maybe sounds a little harsh. This book isn't all that bad, is very interesting. Not one of my favorites, but is good for when you don't have anything else to do.

So Cameron is this PI who is looking for two of his partners, and he meets Faith who is a forensic scientist by accident. Because of the noisy clerk of the front desk at the hotel. Faith is looking for a stolen research of her dad. Stolen by her 3 months boyfriend, who she came after. So it was kind of entertaining all the mystery, partners disappearing, research being stolen, and even some murders. But the way everything is a big mess it really disappointed me. In the earlier books of this series Spear tell us about how G.I. the werewolf world is, but then in this book everything is permitted? I mean, really? 

We have Kintail the Alpha Leader of the main pack of this book, with a very strong personality. It even scared me. But out of nowhere the pack doesn't act like it should, and gets into all sort of problems, and do all sort of stuff that almost jeopardize the werewolf style of life. It even made them the target of a hunt group named Dark Angels. And you think Kantail will have a rage outburst, but it never happens. I waited for Cameron and Kantail to fight over Faith, as two alpha males fighting for their mate. But again, something that never happened. 
This book knows how to make you expect things with a lot of action, but disappoint you when you don't get it. The love story is like in any other paranormal book, nothing that stand out of the normal. Hero meets girl, girl feel her knees get weak just of looking at his smile, they make love and fall in love. So nothing new there. 

Something I like about Spear writing is how she doesn't waste time describing things that doesn't count, I think that's why I keep reading this series. Maybe hoping it keeps getting better book by book. So it's a very light reading, where you can let your mind explore and do things your way.

Hope Next one is better! XD
