In a futuristic Earth, Cassandra is one of the daughters of the Wolf-Clan.  She is on a quest to seek an understanding between her house, the House of Lochinvar, and the House of Yarishet, and then to acquire a talisman that was long ago taken from her people.  Along the way, her mother summons her and tells her to seek out a male slave of her people and purchase him from the Dwarf slaver.  She instead finds Mak, whom she is drawn to but is in rough shape.  She knows he is Human and not part wolf as she is, but decides she will purchase him.  What she finds as she heals him is that he might be the mate she figured she would never have?  Will he help her complete her journey, and will he be strong enough to care for her as herself?

The Way of the Wolf is the first book in the Northlanders Series by Shelby Morgen.  It is easily a stand alone story about finding one’s true love in the most unexpected place.  Ms. Morgen does a wonderful job of setting the scene of her imaginary world which is full of shape shifters, Orcs, Dwarfs and Humans.  I found the characters well developed and interesting, and the sexual scenes quite hot.  It should be noted that some people will find the one scene where Cass and Mak mate in wolf form disturbing, but in the context of the story, it makes perfect sense.  I found The Way of the Wolf intriguing and a great start to a new series.
