Blurb from book: Gifted with exceptional strength and extraordinary sensuality, the shape-shifting Chanku have learned to survive on their own, far away from their one time home in the mountains of Montana. But as the years pass, the packs begin to long for one another, for the incredible passion they enjoy together and for the erotic pleasure they find only with their own kind…
    It is then they hear Anton’s call. He has learned even more about the fascinating past of the Chanku. And the young girl, Lily, has made the most astonishing discover of all…
    The time has come for all Chanku to come together as one, to reclaim their primal past and to enter an amazing future that no one ever dreamed. Their epic journey is over, and least for now…
My thoughts: I wasn’t all that impressed with the last few books in this series, so I hesitated to read this. But I did and glad I had. Lots of stuff is packed into this (with lots of sex, can’t forget that!), making it longer than the others in this series. But it is a nice ending and I enjoyed the story.

I still have to pack my clothes, but I think I’m ready for the Rust City Book Con. When I get back from that on Sunday, then I have to start thinking about Dragon Con. I need to start binge-watching The Vampire Diaries (since I’m on the fan panel), and take lots of notes. Must remember to take notes! I can’t afford to procrastinate there. The Vampire Diaries lasted for 8 seasons! I still need season 8, but I’m not even sure I’ll get through seven seasons before the end of the month. It’ll be fun trying, though. J

So… How do you decide which book to read next? Do you look at your stack and see which one grabs you? Or do you have a specific list you’re whittling down? Me, I tend to look at my stack. Unfortunately the books on top get my attention first and I always put the newest purchase on top. Hmmm… Maybe I need to change my strategy there.

Happy Reading!

Are you going to Dragon Con to wander or do you have a booth? I know they are expensive.
I'm trying to read a variety, including at least one book by every blogger buddy. So my choice is a little random.

My reading is somewhat random. I tend to do most of my book shopping via the library, which means waiting for inter-library loans (sometimes for months), so it's either what comes in or what I grab off the shelf.

Good luck with the binge watching!

Alex - No, I'm not going to Dragon Con as a guest (I've tried before with no luck), or a vendor. I just got lucky to be picked for the panel when they sent out a "casting" call on Facebook. Basically, this author is attending as a fan, hoping to get a few sales.

Jeff - If you have a tablet or e-reader and like reading e-books, you can probably get multiple library cards via Overdrive (Hubby has cards from Dayton, Columbus, and Cleveland) and maybe get a wanted book sooner.
