Book Review: Azure by Cheree Alsop

                    (Silver Series: Book 5)


Azure, the fifth book of the Silver Series, is about an alpha werewolf who rescues a human from the vengeful grasp of his pack. Nora is the only person who is not afraid of Vance’s size or strength, and in return she gains his respect. When Vance is pushed to the edge of survival, his heart is torn between loving Nora and a werewolf who befriends him with the kindness that is greatly lacking in his life.


My Review

Jaze's pack continues to grow in this fifth installment in the Silver Series. Vance has lived a sheltered and hidden life with other young male werewolves whose parents feared for their lives. When hunters attack the camp, he finds himself the only thing standing between a young hunter and her certain death at the hands of the other werewolves. Despite the threat Nora poses to the entire pack, Vance sees something in her worth saving.

Azure is the story of enemies who become something so much more as they come to know and understand each other. It's a story of moving past blind prejudice and finding the light of truth. Vance and Nora's budding relationship is heartwarming and touching to follow. And painful as well, when circumstances drag them apart and Vance ends up in terrible danger. The feelings he develops for another werewolf who helps him through his ordeal are very true to the sort of thing which happens when two people suffer through a traumatic event together. The following love triangle is believable and well done. It's hard to decide who you hope Vance ends up with, the strong willed and fierce Nora, or the bubbly and resilient Gem.

This is an intense book with strong themes sure to haunt you long after you've read the final page and is by far the best in the series. Azure pulls no punches when it comes to harsh topics such as hatred, torture, and murder. It's not for the faint of heart. But the overall message of love's healing power is an uplifting experience that will leave you breathless.
