Summary

I have met the enemy… 

With Jason Wolfe’s ragtag team of monster hunters hardening into a lethal unit, they’re ready to roll. And not a moment too soon. 

In the wilds of northern Canada, something is stalking humans and leaving a trail of scattered remains. The team arrives, armed for mayhem. But how do they handle an arrogant client, not to mention a killer that can’t be tracked? 

Meanwhile, Jason faces an inner test. His wolf nature, awakened by the vast, rugged landscape, yearns to break from the human mind tethering it. A struggle made more dangerous by Nadie, an alluring shifter intent on claiming the Blue Wolf for her mate. 

With a winter storm pounding in, can Jason hold onto his command, his teammates, and his devotion to his fiancée? 

Or will this mission consume them all?

The thrill of the hunt is calling!

Blue Howl is the 3rd book in the Blue Wolf series. Much like its predecessors, it offers up a fun ride full of action and lore. As the title implies, this is a series, however, each book features its own mystery, mission, and ultimate antagonist. If you are just jumping into the series now, you wouldn’t be too lost on the characters and would be able to piece together their backstories from inference, making this installment (as well as the previous two titles) enjoyable as standalone reads. Having said that, you'll get the most enjoyment if you have been keeping up with the series.

Without spoiling too much of the story, the following is a spoiler free synopsis (including a little backstory). Our main protagonist, a former spec. ops. soldier turned wolf-human, is now committed to a year of mercenary work in order to obtain a cure for his lupine condition so he can return to his fiancé as a normal man. The corporation he is employed by assigned him to be a squad leader of a rag-tag team of fellow gifted/cursed/otherwise-abled do-gooders. Their mission is simple: figure out the mystery of what awful entity has emerged from the rift to the other realm, stop the killings, and kill said entity. This particular entry sees our protagonist heading to colder climates to find the abducted love interest of the hiring client. The town leadership insists the disappearances and deaths are the result of a rabid Kodiak bear, but we all know that isn’t the case. Things get more complicated as our hero starts to battle his wolf instincts/nature, particularly when pheromones are involved. Can our team unravel the mystery of the killings? Is it somehow connected to the indigenous tribe’s legends? Can the protagonist continue to do good while also trying to stay in good graces with his corporate financiers? Will our hero survive to return to his fiancé?

The author, Brad Magnarella, does a fantastic job of incorporating a wide swath of the fanciful beasts and terrors. From gods, to vampires, to dragons, somehow there is a bit of everything perfectly woven together without seeming forced. Like a cross between Pacific Rim and the Brothers Grimm, you never know what otherworldly malevolent entity is around the corner. Much in the way that describing Neil Gaiman’s 'American Gods' doesn’t do it justice, the Blue Wolf series is better experienced first-hand. Coming in just shy of 7.5 hours, this is the perfect length thrill-ride while also enjoying some more character development. The narrator, James Patrick Cronin, helps bring those character to life with his great narration. Each character’s voice is uniquely distinct, with some voices being outright charming.

Overall, Blue Howl continues, and adds upon, the enjoyment of the series. If you are looking for a fun and action packed mystery/action/adventure with a other-dimension-horror twist, then you will not be disappointed.

Another Good story in this series...

I really like these stories. The writer does a great job and doesn't make them overly wordy... Like some wantabe "Tolken" writers.
I can't wait for the next story in this series.

Captain Wolfe Encounters Temptation


This was a great third entry in the Blue Wolf series. The team is tasked with finding a missing woman and solving a series of murders. Along the way, they continue to learn to trust one another and deal with outside interference. There is also some incredible mystical creatures and realms to deal with. As usual, author Brad Magnarella keeps things grounded with excellent characterization. You care about what happens and these people get out through hell. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audio book. James Patrick Cronin does his usual wonderful job on narration. A thrilling, exciting entry into the series with many twists and turns.

Keeps getting better

All 3 books in the series are excellent. I would strongly suggest reading them in order but it's not necessary.
