First Bite (The dark wolf series)- Dani Harper

Geneva “Neva” Ross doesn’t want to die. But now that she’s been turned into a werewolf against her will, she’ll do anything to protect her family and friends…even if that means taking her own life.

After witnessing Neva’s leap from a high ledge, Travis Williamson—a Changeling with a dark past—uses his powers to save her life. He feels a connection to the strong-willed woman whose eyes flash that familiar Changeling green. While Neva is hospitalized, Travis risks everything to kidnap her, knowing the approaching full moon will put everyone in jeopardy.

Bickering constantly to hide their growing attraction, Travis and Neva run from the authorities…and from Neva’s sinister sire, Meredith de la Ronde. Meredith delights in creating new shape-shifters and compelling them to do her dark bidding; now Neva must join Meredith’s murderous wolf pack…or die.

I think this is a awesome start to a new series, the suspense throughout draws you in and holds you by the throat until the last page.

The villain is truly bad she has a evil character right to her core , Meredith is the bad seed the bad twin and it was great to read. Meredith is insane she is a wolf changeling and she uses real black dark magic to achieve her goals, she is a real piece of work.

Geneva (Neva) is a strong character she was turned against her will and makes the decision to kill herself before she makes the change. This is where we meet Travis he feels a strange pull towards Neva, his inner wolf directs him to her a couple of times, so Travis saves Neva after her suicide attempt, then his wolf directs him to the hospital to spring her out.

Travis is a lone wolf with no pack, when we find out the reason for this your heart goes out to him.
He is a really good guy, he stayed with Neva to show her how to be a changeling to make sure she made it through her first transition, showed her how to change ect.

I loved the interactions between Travis and Neva there is great chemistry and some lovey humor.

The other characters in this book, Riley and Baker are great, i liked Baker he was funny, Riley he is a bit of a mystery and has suffered so much at the hands of Meredith, you want to know more about both of these guys in future books.

I thought the wolf /changeling with magic would be too much for one book most of the time you just get one or the other in a story, but i found that having both subjects worked really well, it tied the whole thing together.

This book takes you on a suspenseful wild ride of twist and turns, with humor and romance thrown in for good measure, it is a great mix and a cracking read and i cannot wait to read more, i will be reading the next book for sure.
Although there is not a cliff hanger at the end, there is a big space where there can be so much more story to come and you want it so bad, i need to know where everyone goes next and what happens to them, i love a book that leaves you wanting more!
