What happens when monsters turn out to be real? One summer night while camping in the woods, Morgan Carter finds out in a big way. A tall mysterious stranger, Greyson Crawford, risks his life to try and save her sister from the vicious wolf attacking their camp. When he's bitten and disappears into the night, Morgan can only assume the worst.
Greyson shows up a year later, and he's a different animal altogether. His eye color shifts constantly and the rumble in his throat sounds more animal than human. She hasn't any idea where he's been all this time, but a good guess as to what he's become.
Grey is determined not to let the darkness of his new existence affect Morgan and the little girl in her care. He hasn't been able to stop thinking about Morgan but knows he should stay away and let her live a normal life. That's easier said than done, though. A new danger pulls him from the shadows to keep her safe, and he's no wolf in sheep's clothing.
Can she accept what lurks just below his surface? More importantly, can she survive him?

Silver Wolf Clan is a nice introduction to the Silver Wolf Clan series. Shanley immediately pulled me into the story and I enjoyed her werewolf lore.
The story begins with a nail biting scene that set the tone for the story. The blend of action and character development, along with just enough reveal of werewolf mythology was spot on and has me wanting more. Silver Wolf Clan is told in dual POV from both Grey's and Morgan's perspectives. I like this format and it worked well for the story.
Grey, once a rather broken man, is now a strong alpha who is struggling with his new life. Shanley did will in conveying both his struggle with what he's become and his struggle with his desire to keep Morgan save from himself. Morgan is resilient and feisty, two qualities I like in a heroine. She's had to do some growing since the first night she met Grey. I'm eager to see both these characters fleshed out even more. The members of the Dallas pack added depth to the story. I liked the dynamics between them and Grey. And there was certainly some added drama.
Typically with novellas I'm left feeling gypped. With Silver Wolf Clan, even though I'm eager for more back story for Grey and Morgan, and even the Dallas pack, I felt Shanley doled out just enough information to really hook me. All the elements for a great series are there and I think it's a great foundation to build on. I'm excited for more of the werewolf mythology - the silver wolf mythology in particular - as well as all the characters. Overall, this was a great little novella!
