Forever Wolf by: Maria Vale


A fierce wolf shifter romance where one woman may be able to save a rogue shifter, but at what cost to her wolfpack…

Varya is fiercely loyal to the Great North Pack, which took her in when she was an orphaned teenager. While out on a midnight patrol, Varya finds Eyulf, a rogue shifter, wounded and starving. In a slippery escape from danger, she saves his life, at great risk to her own.

Eyulf was once rejected by his pack as an infant and has never understood why, or what he is…until Varya crosses his path and introduces him to a new Pack world.

With old and new enemies threatening the Great North, Varya knows that she must keep Eyulf hidden. Until the day they must fight to the death for the Pack’s survival, side by side and heart to heart with a love unbound…


Content Warnings: Blood/gore, violence, gun violence, mutilation/disfigurement, murder, death, discrimination, abandonment of a child, child abuse, sexual scenes [that are vague, not graphically depicted at all], and sexism.

As a child Varya watched her Pack destroyed by humans and felt lucky, as a teen, to be taken in by the Great North Pack. Though everyone always seems scared of her, it’s rare for any to meet her eyes, Varya is determined to be strong and protect this Pack from any threat.

Abandoned as an infant Eyulf has traveled all over in an attempt to find a place to belong. Having no real knowledge of what he is he believes he’s the last “werewolf” until Varya finds and nurses him back to health. Eyulf finally doesn’t feel alone and even gets to start learning Pack history.

This series has lore that is so beautiful and rich that I always look forward to the next book so I can find out more. I also love that, so far, each character we follow has feelings of being different but that never stops any of them from doing what they feel is right, in regards to protecting the Pack.

This book had me in tears at the conclusion which I was not expecting but here we are. Varya is such an easy person, for me, to connect to and empathize with. She’s so strong and fierce and feels like she can never show softness to others…until she meets Eyulf.

Once again Maria has completely blown me away with another installment of this series and I can’t wait to read the rest. I’ll be ordering book four soon and book five releases later this month and I believe that’s the conclusion to the series. If you’re looking for a shifter/wolf-related series with deep and complex characters and beautiful lore…I highly recommend diving into this series.

Growing up, Japanese and Indigenous, it was hard to find books that showcased stories and worlds that accurately portrayed Noelle’s experiences. Fantasy quickly became her main love, as you could really be anyone, anywhere. As the years went on, and technology grew, Noelle was finally able to see more stories and authors that looked and felt like her. Noelle is open to all genre’s though she can mostly be found reading own voice, fantasy, and romance. Ratings: 5 Stars: Completely blew me away 4 Stars: Loved the story but didn't feel completely blown away by it 3 Stars: Liked the overall concept of the story but either had poor execution, had a lot of plot holes, or was written poorly 2 Stars: I struggled to understand the plot, poorly written, or just had really unlikeable characters along with a poor writing 1 Star: Horribly written, major plot holes, or extremely unlikeable characters and plots.
