Valiant Heart, The Order of the Wolf, Book 6 by Angela Addams rocks!
I got caught up in the new tale. Readers get a Hunter and Huntress as main characters. This was definitely a big change from the previous books from this series. With the other books, I identified more with the werewolf and Huntress mate bond since they were the main characters. In this book, something was very wrong with the werewolf and Huntress mate bond.
I couldn't resist a compelling story about Lance (Hunter) and Ariana (Amazon North Huntress). They have different strong ideals of what a Huntress and Hunter relationship/bond should be. The story wasn't all sunshine and roses but I didn't mind the conflicts or confrontations. They struggled to come to terms with each other. Their journey was harder than the yellow brick road. You'll just have to read the novel to get to their HEA.
Lance has found his true mate in Ariana. She just doesn't believe in his true intentions and fears abandonment. Things spiral out of their control. Will he be able to bond with her completely?
Ariana's Order of the Huntress may have clouded her personal views. Later, she was able to reevaluate her goals and opinions. She was able to be a more well-rounded and self-actualized individual. Her personal growth makes her a better future leader.
The Amazon North Huntresses have an agenda and their enemies do too.
Read the story to find out who you identify with and remember to keep to open mind.
Valiant Heart is not to be missed!
I give this book 4.5 stars and a Top Pick!
When the choice is love or loyalty, no matter what she chooses the heart will bleed.
The Order of the Wolf, Book 6
Slay the beasts. Save the day. Such is Ariana’s role in her first mission for the Queen. She has no reason to think the rest will be any different…until, in the heat of battle, she uses her powers to heal an injured Order Huntress.
Her gift doesn’t go unnoticed. Lance, her very own Hunter, zeroes in, and a different battle is on. Lance is hot and very attentive, but this Amazon is determined to stay independent.
Lance has prepared his whole life to battle alongside his mate. Now that he’s found her, nothing and no one else matters. He’s not letting her go.
For the Queen’s second mission—bring the Oracle into the tribe—Ariana risks taking Lance’s bond to get more power. She never expected her body to crave more pleasure, her heart to lower its defenses.
As the battle rages on between Huntresses and beasts, there’s a foul plan in play that will force Ariana to decide where her loyalty lies. The cost of her choice could be a life.
Warning: Contains a squirm-worthy love triangle, plus some scenes of debatable consent between a take-no-crap Huntress and a super-hot playboy with a come-hither smile and a come-multiple-times tongue.
