I love everything Arend writes and this is no exception.
A shifter that can't shift and a vet.Lily. A loner who shifts to both cougar and wolf and lives in Isolation. Chase.
He comes to town for a years worth of supplies and meets the lovely Vet just beginning to set up her new practice. He is already suffering from a toxic shifter injury that will probably kill him.
With the help of her mentor, she returns to the wild to find the shifter that caused the injury only to find him already dead.
An anicdote is created and all regain health.
The story, the characters and the locations in northern Canada all add to the fantastic story of Silver Mine. A book I could not put down. This series is sure to be one that I will follow.
