My Rating: 4.5 Stars
The most enigmatic and tortured of the Feral Warriors, Wulfe is haunted by the quiet beauty of a human woman who no longer remembers him. Once a captive of both the Mage and the Ferals, Natalie stole a piece of his heart before he took her memories and sent her safely back to her fiancé. But now the Mage are threatening her again, and Wulfe will risk anything to protect her.
Natalie Cash is stunned when she's saved by a wolf who shifts suddenly into a splendidly built, if badly scarred, man, a man with the kindest eyes. Swept into a world of intrigue and danger beyond her comprehension, she turns to the powerful Wulfe, finding a passion she'd only dreamed of. But when time runs out, they must trust one another and surrender to a wild, untamed love.
Pamela Palmer knows how to make shit hit the fan. Her Feral Warriors series is one of the most alluring paranormal series I have read to date. The fantasy world she builds is nothing short of immaculate. All too often in paranormal series the details fall through the crack. Not with these books. Every character is developed to their fullest and every emotion is communicated perfectly. Wulfe Untamed is the perfect addition to Ms. Palmer's Feral Warriors series.
Wulfe Untamed continues with the previous story arc from the books before. The evil of all evils is trying to rise and the warriors are doing everything in their power to stop it. Along the way many warriors have fallen prey to the women they now call their mates. Wulfe already experienced a mating once and it left him reluctant to try it again and doubtful he would even get another shot. His previous mating was for shear utilitarian reasons. There was no love lost. But hope sparks in Wulfe when the warriors save a group of innocents from death at the hands of the Mage. Natalie, one of the captives, calls to Wulfe. They connect on the most basic and emotional of levels. But he must send her back to her life with no recollection of their time together. All is well and good, until a good deed Wulfe executed comes back to haunt both him and Natalie. Once again Natalie is back at Feral house and under the protection of the warriors.
Despite not remembering their previous time together, Natalie is once again instantly attracted to Wulfe. But now they must pay the price for Wulfe's actions. As the ferals are losing touch with their animals and therefore losing their strength and immortality, it is a fight against time to kill Inir and stop Satanan's escape. With Natalie's life in the balance, Wulfe must embrace his Daemon side to save the woman who has awoken his soul and heart. The only problem is that he has inadvertently made her the key to end this horror show but, it will also end her life.
This book was SO good. As in I read it in one sitting and completely ignored the fluke, gorgeous weather we were having that day. I have wanted Wulfe to get his HEA from Book #1. He always seemed the most deserving of the ferals to experience happiness again. But this book was more than just Natalie and Wulfe's story. This was the end all, be all of this story arc. Everything the past seven books have been leading up to came to head in Wulfe Untamed. It was dramatic, heartbreaking, and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. They looked like they were coming to a conclusion and I look down and I'm only at 48%. Then all hell breaks loose. If this book were a haircut, it's be a spiky mohawk- up and down, up and down.
Wulfe, with his light and dark soul, and a horrendously painful past, has been shut off emotionally. He does his job and takes care of his fellow warriors and is kind but, he is hardened on the inside. Until Natalie. She gives him back his self-worth and shows him the love he has always deserved. And he reciprocates in kind. I love that Natalie got the greatest pleasure from helping Wulfe feel whole and love again. He was eventually able to offer his entire being to her- heart, body and soul, and she gladly accepted. While they still had that magnetic chemistry, that all the ferals have with their mates, Wulfe and Natalie are one of those easy couples. They're not combustible, they just... are. I read them together from the very beginning and it was understood, without being said that they were each other's perfect match. I love those couples. The ones that aren't all over the place, and can simply just be together without the hysterics. Suffice it to say, Wulfe's story delivered. Big time. I got the conclusion to this eight book story arc and my favorite character in the series found his mate all in one book. I call that a fantastic read! And I look forward to hopefully reading more about the unmated ferals in the future.
