So this is the last story in the Grayslake series. The first four books focused on the Abram brothers in Grayslake. This one actually focuses on Reid, a werewolf and former alpha of the pack that lives just outside of Grayslake. Reid is a character that has been around since the beginning. He lost his ability to be alpha when he went after one of the Abrams brother’s mate. He was kicked out of the area. Now he is working for the Southeast Itan (which is the leader of the entire southeastern US). He is sent in to fix problems. He has now been sent to Brookfield to investigate after a call was made to the Southeast Itan.

The book opens up after Reid has just killed the first person he comes across in the town of Brookfield. This person had it come. Reid saved a young girl from getting raped. He sends her on her way and then makes the call to the Southeast Itan. Then he realizes that the man he killed was the Itan of the local bear clan. So now, instead of just investigating and reporting back. Reid has to go in and take over the town.

Evelyn is the person who made the call. She wasn’t raised in Brookfield. She was raised with her grandmother’s clan until her grandmother’s death. She was then forced to go live with her father, the Itan of Brookfield. Now her uncles are beating on her for making the call to the Southeast Itan. That is until Reid comes down and kills all of her uncles (except the one that gets away initially).

So this story is a bit darker than the previous books in this series. Part of that is the nature that brought Reid to the town. Part of it is that Reid is a very dark character. He is a psychopath and knows it and is okay with that fact. Evelyn isn’t even the slightest bit scared of him. She is the perfect mate for him because of that fact. She will stand up to him when he needs it, but also doesn’t shy away when he goes a bit nuts and starts killing people (he does only kill people who deserve it, though he does think often about killing others for annoying him).

There is also a short story at the end of this book called Sunday Bear-becue. It is a nice chance to spend some time with all the characters in the series. It mostly focuses on Ty and Mia, the main couple for the first book, but all the couples are present.

Howl My Name Audiobook Narration

I truly enjoyed Kendall Taylor narration of this entire series. I think she did a great job with each of the different characters. I think she did a wonderful job with the funny parts and the dark parts. She was also very good at the sex scenes. I loved her male and female voices. I hope to find her narrating more books in my future.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. I think I actually read the first two books in this series and either I forgot about it or I got distracted and then forgot about it. Hmm…I might have to revisit it lol.

  2. LOL, it says something about me that its the psychopath observation that had me really perking up about this one.

    That short scene at the end sounds like a cute way to tie-up the series.

  3. Sounds a bit dark for me. But I also feel like I’m over most PNR. Nice review!

  4. I am almost positive I read book one in this series. Maybe. The Grayslake sounds so familiar. I’d have to dig out my kindle and reread though for sure. I’m glad you enjoyed it!

  5. That’s fun that the other did a short at the end with all the characters! Love when authors give us a little something extra like that. 🙂 Wonderful review!

  6. I love her books. I’ll have to give this one a try.

  7. I haven’t read this series Melanie but I know you love it. I’m not a fan of this cover though it looks a little I don’t know off.

  8. Glad this was a good ending even if it was a bit dark. I also like that you got a short story, Sunday Bear BBQ, the title is catchy.

  9. Oh I love shifter books and I don’t mind when they go dark. I really think I’d enjoy this series.
