Sam of Wilds faced the Dark wizard Myrin and lived to tell the tale. Granted, the battle left him scarred, but things could be a hell of a lot worse. It’s not until he reunites with Morgan of Shadows and Randall that he realizes just how much worse things could be. Because the scars have meaning and hint at Myrin’s true plans for Sam and the Kingdom of Verania. With time running out, Sam and his band of merry misfits must travel to the snowy mountains in the North and the heart of the Dark Woods to convince the remaining dragons to stand against Myrin.

I was not expecting to fall in love with this book. But I did. The story, characters, narration all become so much more. *awkward hug*

Can a gentle werewolf heal the heart of a smart-mouthed mage? New York Times best-seller Gail Carriger, writing as GL Carriger, presents an offbeat gay romance in which a sexy werewolf with a white knight complex meets a bad-boy mage with an attitude problem. Sparks (and other things) fly.

Charming fun romp filled with wit , humour, magic, shape shifters and damn lentils. Appreciated the tie in to the parasolverse and how the story's final chapters add substance to the beginning.

Through out the listening I was left wanting someone with a richer voice more suited to the tapestry of story and cultural to take up the narration.
