ARC Review: The Half Wolf by Jay Northcote


Can college roommates go from friends to lovers? 
Mate, family, pack, home… can Quinn and Kellan have it all?

Quinn grew up feeling out of place in the small town he calls home. Yearning for something he can’t name, he’s always felt different but never known why.

Kellan is part of a nomadic shifter pack. When they set up camp in the woods near Quinn’s town, the humans are unwelcoming and suspicious of the newcomers. The moment Kellan catches sight—and scent—of Quinn, he knows Quinn is special. But for the first time in his life, Kellan can’t trust his instincts. Quinn is human, and Kellan is a wolf shifter, so how can they ever be mates?

Their bond is instant and exhilarating. It breaks Quinn’s heart to know their relationship can only be temporary. Love isn’t enough when pack law forbids shifters to mate with humans. Tension explodes between pack and humans, and when Quinn discovers a shocking truth about himself that changes everything, he fears he’ll have to choose between the only life he’s ever known and the man he loves.

Dani's rating:

I really enjoyed this book:




Sexual and self discovery



Quinn has always been fascinated by shifters, so when he hears a shifter pack has moved to the outskirts of the small English town where he lives, he can't stay away. The first time Quinn sees Kellan, his heart goes wild.

And Kellan can smell Quinn, his not-quite-human scent.

Quinn and Kellan feel an immediate, intense attraction, but outside forces threaten to tear them apart.

Quinn realizes there's a reason he's always felt like an outsider, and Kellan is scared the town's prejudice toward shifters will drive him and Quinn apart.

This is a fast-paced story. A lone wolf is preying on livestock, and the town folk blame Kellan's pack. Prejudice and hatred abound.

At times, it didn't feel like the story was set in the here and now, but in the days of dirt roads and vigilante justice. The humans' reaction toward Kellan's pack mirrored every fear fueled by ignorance and bigotry.

I'm a big fan of shifter stories, and Jay's The Half Wolf didn't disappoint. I'm hopeful more books set in this world will follow, because I'm not done with Jay's shifters, not by a long shot.

Read. Read anything. Read the things they say are good for you, and the things they claim are junk. You’ll find what you need to find. Just read.
