Review: Ice Claimed (Werewolf Sentinels #5) by Marisa Chenery

Finding his mate is something Durlach has longed for, but being in his dire wolf form at the time throws things off—including his mate, who just happened to be on the back of the horse Durlach spooked. Not a ladies’ man by any means, he has the challenge to come up with a plausible way to meet her in his human form and sweep her off her feet.

Meadow is surprised with how tame the wolf is and realizes he must be a domesticated pet. And when his hunky master comes by looking for him, she has sexy visions of taming him too. Little does she know the secrets he’s keeping.

As Durlach tries to ease his mate into his world, seducing her bit by bit, the dark wolves take steps to become more of a threat. Not only are werewolves in their line of sight, but so are the mortals who live amongst them.

While this story can be read as a stand alone, all the characters are connected to the previous books.  To get the most enjoyment out of the series they are best read in order.

Durlach is anxious to find his mate.  It’s been two years since he woke up in an ice cave after sleeping for ten thousand years.  When he is out on a run as a wolf, he comes across a horse and rider spooking the horse.  When he gets near the rider he realizes she is his mate.  Meadow is an archeologist that specializes in ice age artifacts.  When a wolf spooks her horse she worries that she is about to be attack but he is very calm and tame.  When his ‘owner’ comes to claim him the next day she get her fist look at Durlach and is instantly attracted.

We have gotten to know Durlach over the last few books as the wolf brother that can’t cook.  He is pretty laid back even though his wolf is closer to the surface than the other sentinels so he spends more time as a wolf.  He shares a room with the new character from the previous book, Ryder, the wolves’ shaman.  We get yet another new character in this story, the caretaker of Meadow’s home Taylor.  He is an intriguing character and I hope to see something done with him.  There is a nice plot twist with the dark wolves.  I expect the next books to have a little more action and/or drama.

Meadow was a nice break from some of the previous heroines in the series.  She is very down to earth and takes things as they come.  She doesn’t have any big hang ups with men or relationships, she has just been waiting on the right one.  There isn’t a lot of drama in this story either.  Meadow doesn’t have a big freak out when she discovers Durlach is a werewolf and once she talks to him about it she is able to come to her decision about whether or not she wants to be mated and turned.

I do wish the dialogue had a better flow.  I don’t like each step explained when they do something.  It seems to be somewhat stilted at times.  Otherwise I am really enjoying this series and I am looking forward to the next book.
