The Last Wolf focused on life of the Great North Pack and its home territories. On Silver, the runt who was struggling to make a life for herself at the bottom of the hierarchy.
Elijah Sorensson is her opposite. The Alpha of his age group, he lives not in Homelands, but in New York City, an Offlander, tasked with serving the Pack’s interests in the human arena.
After many years, Elijah has become a powerful lawyer and a master manipulator of the human hierarchy, but the once-firm lines between his human act and his wild self are blurring and something inside is dying.
Then he meets Thea Villalobos, a human who has learned the price of pretending. A woman who sees beyond the man of the world to the passionate, heartbroken wolf.
But some secrets are not his to share.
A Wolf Apart "strikingly explores the core werewolf conflict between civilization and the wild, and offers food for thought about “the nature of strength,” all in the context of a tense, high-energy plot....Vale’s nuanced exploration of werewolf concepts elevates this work above others in the genre." --Publishers Weekly starred review.
"There's an emptiness to Elijah...and it's turning him into a caged animal. It's sexy and it's frightening, a heady combination...A feral and fearsome romance that works for its happy ending."--Kirkus
