#BookReview – “Destiny of the Wolf” by Terry Spear


All she wants is the truth…
Lelandi Wildhaven is determined to discover the truth about her beloved sister’s mysterious death. But everyone thinks she’s out to make a bid for her sister’s widowed mate…

He’s a pack leader tormented by memories…
Darien Silver blames himself for his mate’s death. When her twin arrives in his town, he finds himself bewitched, and when someone attempts to silence her, he realizes that protecting the beautiful stranger might be the only way to protect his pack—and himself…


In the second book of the Heart of the Wolf series, red wolf Lelandi has traveled to Silver Town, Colorado in search of the person who killed her sister, Larissa, but first she needs to meet with Larissa’s mate, Darien. Lelandi has a lot of secrets—she’s in danger from her own pack, she believes her parents are dead, and her brother is missing. Her life is all about revenge, and she’s not about to let a seductive gray wolf stand in her way.

Darien Silver is the gray pack leader of the Silver Town wolves, and he’s in mourning over the death of his pregnant mate. When he meets Lelandi, he’s in shock. The two women are near-identical twins (actually, they’re triplets with a brother), but he recognizes Lelandi as the woman he’s seen in his dreams. He soon realizes he mated the wrong sister and sets out to take Lelandi for his own.

Though I liked the story, I couldn’t connect with the H/h. Both Darien and Lelandi kept too many secrets from each other. He was also very protective of her—which an alpha hero should be—but his actions and words were often sexist and too controlling. Lelandi, luckily, had a backbone and did what she wanted anyway, but he often seduced her to bend her to his will. I also couldn’t understand how his feelings for Larissa just disappeared after he realized she lied to him about being his soul mate.

I was a little confused since details were breezed over in the beginning and sometimes the wrong names were being used. For example, I thought Larissa was originally mated to Bruin, not to Crassus. At least that’s how it seemed at first. Also, in one scene Lelandi is sitting on the couch and then her dead sister, Larissa, is on the couch. The wrong name was used, unless I misread something again.

Anyway, I enjoyed the mystery of who blackmailed and killed Larissa. I really felt sorry for the poor girl. Darien’s brothers and other members of his pack, especially Silva and Sam, were awesome secondary characters. I can’t wait to see what happens with them in future books. We officially meet Leidolf, the red wolf who helped the couple in the previous book, and I’m even more intrigued with him and his connection with newly turned wolf Carol.
