Review: Wolf's Magic by Rebecca Royce

Wolf's Magic (Westervelt Wolves, #4) by Rebecca Royce

Publisher: Liquid Silver Books
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Heat Rating: 2



Wolf’s Magic is the story of Azriel Kane, fifth brother in the royal Westervelt wolf pack. Always different from his siblings, Azriel prefers to spend his time underground in a lab than out fighting battles to save the pack from destruction. In his own way, he feels he is contributing to the pack’s success. However, when fate plants his destined mate in a cage where he can’t ignore her, Az will be forced to face up the demons that have plagued him since childhood and be the shifter she needs him to be.

Leah St. James has no idea who she is or how she came to be trapped in a cage in Azriel’s lab. The only thing she is certain about is that she is not a wolf and that she wants out of her false wolf body as soon as possible. Counting on Az to save her from the same doomed fate as the other wolves Az is given to study, from the distance of her cage she can see Az for who he really is and not the false front he presents to the world.

But Kendrick Kane is not done with Westervelt and when he steps up his game to eliminate the Kanes from Westervelt, Az and Leah will need each other to discover the truth behind his evil plans, that is if Azriel can finally reveal the secret he has been keeping since he was a child.

With Leah’s help, can Azriel finally take his place in the pack hierarchy or will they fail and lose Westervelt forever?

Yadkny's Review

Being a wolf shifter has it's benefits, but what if you were stuck as the wolf with no memory of who you are or look like as a human?

Azriel has been diligently working to find a cure for the “made” wolves. So far he's been unsuccessful, but has kept himself down in his lab vowing to keep at it until progress has been made. While watching all of the others eventually die in their cages, there is one curious little wolf who seems more alert than the others. After Theo sheds some light on Az's protective instincts of her, the situation hits critical because now there's no way he can let her die.

Leah doesn't know who she is and what's worse is she doesn't know what she looks like. She experiences these blackouts where she is not in control of what she does and has no recollection of when she comes to. The urge to kill comes as a voice in her mind and obeying feels like the only option. Her target is the Kane brothers, the same people who are trying to save her.

I really enjoyed both Az and Leah's characters. Az might be deemed as the weakest of the brothers, but he more than proved otherwise in the story both physically and mentally. His mindful musings often puts him as somewhat of a joke to his brothers, but once his mind is set to something he doesn't give up. Leah should be a freaked out mess for someone in her situation, but she's actually quite calm and especially trusting that Az will find a cure for her. Az's insecurities are counter-balanced by Leah and vice versa. Their romantic relationship is sweet and sexy at the same time. With every story in the series we progress further into learning what happened in the past and how everything and everyone is tied together. It's especially nice to see all of the little updates that are given on the other couples. Great storyline and I can't wait to see what happens with the rest of the Kane brothers.

3 ½ Tea Cups!
