They are the Arctic Brotherhood.

They are deadly fighters, fierce protectors and loyal mates.

Their sworn enemy is dead, but the Arctic Brotherhood can’t relax. Fenrir, the Norse god of destruction is still determined to destroy the world. Vigo Durand agrees to lead the team against the most feared werewolf the world has ever known, but dark secrets from his past are threatening to catch up with him.

Amber Merova has been on the run for the last five years ago. When she meets Vigo, her werewolf mating impulse almost overwhelms her human instinct for survival. Almost. Feisty, determined, and hostile, Amber initially turns down Vigo’s offer to stay with the Brotherhood. When it looks like the men who murdered her pack have caught up with her, she has no choice but to take his offer of protection.

Both seem damaged beyond repair, but, as they work together to bring down Fenrir, they discover hidden ties that bind them together. Before they can look to the future, they must unravel the mysteries of the past.

 

Review:
Wolf Leader by Jane Godman is the 6th and final book of her The Arctic Brotherhood series.  When we last left off in Wolf Hunter, the evil Fenrir, was imprisoned, but the Arctic Brotherhood of the Midnight Sun team members were still very much in fear.  Fenrir, even chained, had the ability to mind control others to take over their body.  The Brotherhood knew they needed to kill Fenrir before he acted on his plan of destruction of the human race.  But a god can only be killed by another god; how can they find a way to stop Fenrir?

Vigo Durand, is our hero in Wolf Leader and he though respected, he is also a bit of a newbie; but it is his turn to lead this mission.  Vigo is also the only member of the 7 team Brotherhood who does not have a mate, nor is he interested in finding one.  Vigo meet Amber Merova, another Arctic werewolf, who keeps to herself. 

Amber, our heroine, sees the brotherhood arrive and feels a strong pull.  She fights the attraction of one of the men coming off the plane, and ignores it.  When Vigo is told he is now in charge by Gunnar, he learns that the woman he saw earlier is now going to be added to the team.  She has a reputation as being tough and a loner, but she fits the Brotherhood requirements. Vigo goes to see her, and realizes that she is his mate.  They both try to fight off their sizzling attraction to no avail.  Once he forces Amber to meet his team, she slowly begins to accept the inevitable, and senses that being part of the Brotherhood, and helping save the world is something she truly wants.

What follows is an exciting adventure to stop Fenrir, which looks like an impossible task.  Just when you think things will work out, all hell breaks loose and Amber finds herself very much in danger.  I will not tell too much more, other than to say that Godman did a good job in bringing this series to a satisfactory conclusion.  I did like Vigo and Amber together, and they made a great team, as warriors and as a couple.

If you enjoy shifter stories, a fantasy world steeped in Norse Mythology, exciting action, and great characters you get to see throughout this series, you should be reading this fun series

Review:

Wolf Hunter by Jane Godman is the 5th book in her Arctic Brotherood series. I have enjoyed this series, as they are fun, exciting and quick reads. A brief refresher:  Arctic Brotherhood is a shifter series, with an ancient species of Arctic werewolves, who are part of the 7 members of the Brotherhood of the Midnight Sun.

In the last book, one of the members (Hendrik) of the Arctic Brotherhood was murdered, and the villain, Chastel has once again escaped.  Six months have passed, and Sebastian Novak, our hero, is determined to find Chastel before he kills again.  Sebastian goes to visit, Cindy Harper, our heroine, who was Hendrik’s friend (though everyone thought she was his lover).  Sebastian has always loved Cindy, knowing somehow she was his mate, but he did not follow up in deference to his friend, Hendrik.

 In a short time, Sebastian will find out the truth about Cindy, and she will tell him that she has always had feelings for him.  A hot combustible romance begins that will change both of their lives forever.  But first they both need to survive the onslaught of two vicious and powerful evils. When Sebastian arrives, he is just in time to help a worried Cindy, who claims someone is following her. Sebastian can also feel the evil close by, and knows that Chastel is targeting Cindy.   The entire team will meet up to find a way to stop Chastel, and when an old friend comes back, the danger escalates threatening them all.   Rather than say too much more, the team will fight their toughest battle, facing not one, but two very powerful enemies.  It was wonderful to see our favorites back, as the  entire Arctic Brotherhood team is great; including the women or men that find their mates.  I really did love Sebastian and Cindy as a couple.

Wolf Hunter was an exciting adventure with nonstop action, edge of your seat suspense, and steamy sex scenes.   This is an excellent series, with Godman continuing this ongoing storyline smoothly in a wonderful fantasy world steeped in Norse Mythology. If you enjoy werewolves, action packed stories, suspense, exciting, adventure and great characters, then you should be reading this series.  They are quick and fun reads.
