Review: The Legend of the Werewolf (Things in the Night #2) by Mandy Rosko
Mike Carter is a psychic detective in a city that’s not supposed to exist, but he needs a break. When the woman he loves gets married to someone else, he decides to go back home to try and connect with his estranged family.
 
That’s put on hold when he has a terrifying vision and is attacked by a powerful sorcerer, who also happens to be a psychotic killer. When he thinks his number is up, a beautiful woman comes to his aid. She’s a werewolf, and she has every intention of kidnapping Mike and taking him back to her pack.
 
Anne believes she’s found the missing link in werewolf history in Mike, and she is such a believer in the legends that she’s not willing to let him leave. Mike wants to find out why he’s wanted for dead, and what the werewolf legend really means, and with Anne’s help, she’ll pull him into a world even he didn’t know existed.

Take a psychic human, a desperate werewolf, a psychotic sorcerer and a werewolf legend and you have this second entry in the Things in the night series, The Legend of the Werewolf. Rejected by the woman he loves, Mike Carter needs a break from his life and takes a road trip to reconnect from his family. Anne is engages to another wolf in her pack but not by choice. She will do almost anything to get out of it. Is he the missing legend? will she get out of her engagement? what stormy road will these two travel. So many questions to have answered. Mike may think he knows about the supernatural world, but Anne is about to introduce him to a world even he didn’t know existed.

We were first introduced to Mike’s character in the first book of the series. My first impression, he was somewhat of an ass as a jilted lover.  Boy was I wrong. He’s actually very sweet even though he is constantly handed the short end of the stick. In comes in Anne or Annie or sometimes Princess. Depends on who is talking. She is a cute spitfire and I loved her character from the get go. Unfortunately, the Alpha in the group wants her to marry his son. That’s a whole other story there that I won’t get into because frankly it would spoil the surprise.  The extremes she goes to get out of her engagement is at times comical especially when she drags in Mike. Together I loved their characters. Actually I loved all the characters in this story. My second favorite pair is Westley and Chris (See sidebar below).   Now, normally I like my paranormal romances all sexed-up, but there isn’t much more than kissing (plus a little extra) to be found in this book. Nevertheless, I found the romance between Mike and Anne to be more than enough to carry me through. There were so many twists in this story that just when I had things figured out, a curve-ball would come in and surprise me. I do love a story that keeps me guessing and when I fished this book I was one happy reader with all the HEAs.

On a sidebar note. I normal read then review ASAP before heading to my next book. However, after finishing The Legend of the Werewolf I was a little to excited to read the next book in the series, The Dragon And The Wolf. Chris and Westley are just too cute together and I needed to know what their story was. I was so not disappointed. Because these two books are very closely related I highly suggest being prepared and get them both together and reading them back to back.

I am just loving this series. Author Mandy Rosko has definitely found a new fan in me. As a fan of paranormals, I know a lot of folks are going to enjoy this series as much as I have. With the exception of my previous note regarding The Dragon And The Wolf, the full novels of this series work well as stand-alones. I do recommend reading them all because they were such a pleasure to enjoy.
