Violence: quite a bit of fighting, but nothing graphic
Who:Kelly Shane (witch) and Kol Hildr (garm — human/wolf shape-shifter)
From the Back:Kol Hildr had spent the last century battling hellhounds and warlocks who sought to usurp his portal’s magic. A mighty shape-shifter with the ability to change into wolf form, Kol made accessing the powerful gateway nearly impossible — unless you were a witch of Kelly Shane’s talents. She had a score to settle and would do anything to close the portal that led to her unearthly prison. Though an alliance with her compromised Kol’s very purpose, something about the little witch overwhelmed his fierce, battle-worn soul. But when Kelly’s life might be in jeopardy, could Kol put aside the one thing he thought he valued most — the portal — to journey to the other side and save her?
Comments: Loved it. From the Passages Pro software (is it Vista compatible?) to Kelly’s uninvited house-guests. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Kelly’s assistant. I’m thinking she’s the heroine of the fourth book. Lori has stated in October (on her blog) that the main characters of book four know each other already when the story starts. I first thought she meant Fenrir, but I hadn’t finished the book and saw the potential for a story in Heather’s predicament. Either way, I’ll be eagerly looking out for it. For now, waiting ever so patiently for Wild Hunt.
