With maddening revenge toward his creator, Wash holds the kidnapped key to Owen's heart. However, her forced captivity is just a small obstacle to Kristen finding her way back to Owen.
Waging the war of inner turmoil Owen travels back to the pack where Kristen was last seen. Although he is not the only one who seeks the home of the clan, for four others travel now as well. Along with Thomas who brings his unwanted imprinted, Bry invades the wolfly space with an Ink that not only writes an ancient prophecy but leaves the clans alpha in peril.
Karina is bringing everything she has and she has no mercy for the wolves as she feels abandoned by them to suffer at the hands of the shape-shifters. What a conflict of interest for her to now be imprinted to one of them.
Karina bellows through like a wild wind with no one to stop her and she stirs the pack and its existence. It is an absolute brutal confrontation and bloody battle that cracks open more questions for book four expected to be released soon as part of Calls Of The Untamed.
Serious damage is done and the unity of the clan is broken. Once I get past the horror that Karina has inflicted upon the characters I have grown to love, she can stand out among them all as my favorite.
Julia and Thomas are still at odds and fighting against their gift from the moon. Destiny has found them and completes their union….but they both continue to live in denial. Each have their own reasons and perhaps somewhat understandable. Thomas is a character that some readers will easily hate or at least be very angry with. While other readers will understand his fear to accept an imprint and his stubborn nature. His final act that drives a deeper wedge between him and Julia is one that I found completely validated. However the ending in book two Double Call From Desire, opens a Pandora box of ill feelings for Thomas and Julia to now live with and work through.
In almost a dream-like state, Julia recollects her relationship with her brother Jake. It is a spoiler from book two if I tell why this is so significant and to give the details. The point I would like to make about this part of the story is the primal, animalistic instincts are defined and the werewolves fight for control to keep their human side intact.
Wash tries to convince himself that he is keeping Kristen alive solely to settle a score between him and Owen. Opts are moving closer and the suspense is building leaving a question about what is going to happen next.
After being introduced to this author and the Dearhart Clan during a virtual book tour, I was so taken with the first book that I purchased all three books. Immediately I was captivated with Eri Nelson’s style and the setting she creates with her unique writing technique. It is a natural tone for such dark and primal characters.
Heated Calls From Change is absolutely darker than the first two books. There are more pages for the reading. This third book gets deeper into the back story, bringing to the surface some of the answers that were lingering from books one and two.
Eri writes deeply and richly giving her story its original and dark flare. I enjoyed the order of things and how time is split up between the characters. If the chapters were designed any other way, I am not sure the same feeling would be present. It is her writing technique that gives her books their tone and primitive flavor.
The Dearhart Clan Series is for mature readers, fans of paranormal, dark fantasy, horror, werewolves, and adult romance.
The Dearhart Clan Series
Kristen - Sizing in at 5’9 this 23 and ¾ aged Kristen Still is a rare beauty..rare being the optimal word. Long flowing dark red hair, green eyes, ivory skinned, and lean this waitress never knew what hit her when Owen came into her life. Working as a server in a Mom and Pop restaurant Kristen grew up with her Aunt who passed away a couple years ago. Never feeling completely apart of any real family this rusty colored wolf is all but forced to embrace her wolfly imprinted nature all on the run for her life. Her distinct existence is all but an abnormality making her more than just a pup with a lack of control. More questions than answers still whisper about her past making not only the wolves question but Opts and one darkly laced wolf as well.
Kristen’s Aunt Caroline – Caroline Spirtz as far as Kristen knew was never her real aunt. However, the years Kristen spent with Caroline were real enough. Although, Caroline knew more than she ever told Kristen. Perhaps even as much as to know who Kristen really was. Of course, what possible secrets she did or could tell died with her
Brinston Drake – Shapeshifter, unbeknownst to Kristen, the ex-boyfriend, and Owens painful pill to Kristen’s intimate past is set on a path to reward himself along with his horde to one worthy marker. As Kristen’s DNA layers the senses, the horde is quick to move in on Brinston’s past lover and Owen’s imprinted future.
Julia – At 5’9, black hair, blue eyes, and set to shimmer with her olive tone skin Julia the twin to Jake failed to hide their deepest dark secret. With Jake unable to control the blood lust coursing through him, it was not long before the clan came to investigate.
On their own since their parents passing, Julia too thought she could contain this latest situation. However, with the appearance of a new Were in the vicinity she is proven wrong.
Working in a lumber mill Julia’s newfound skills set her on alarm to the new Were’s first appearance. Just outside of Big Horn Mountain, these two wolves are the first to change near the Dearhart’s Clan Reservation. Clearly more than Julia’s grey & brown wolf coloring will bring more to their tracker’s nature.
Jake – 6’1, black hair, blue eyes, and olive tone skin like his twin Julia this muscular wolf loses much of what once made him Jake. Grey with light brown tips making his coat look lightly brown, Jake’s wolf seeks more blood lust than his sister can sway him of.
Thomas - 6’2, sandy brown hair, amber eyes, and trimmed in his own sandy brown scruff, Thomas Dearhart emerges to investigate the rogue wolf sightings in the area. Clad in his not quite a full beard this very muscular wolf ventures on what his senses his telling him is his imprinted. Thrown off guard by the smell of her Thomas wishes to run and send another in his place. However, the rogue is on the loose and his instincts for the female before him have other plans.
Gabriele the Messenger (Gabe) – Given his name by Bry when they first met, Gabriele then shortened to Gabe had been given the changed name simply on the premise that Bry could not pronounce Gabe’s original Indian name.
3rd oldest of the clan Gabe is often the voice of reason. Although the 5’11 stout male with a previous broken nose looks much like a soldier in his Military Crew cut. The style spikes his black hair straight on end and allows for his visibly marked scar on his face to shine even above his skin’s evenly placed tan.
Yvonne – 54 years old Sergeant Yvone started working for Opts in his 30’s and has been with Opts these past 24 years. One of the most ruthless members of the department and has PhD in a field in science, this sheer masochist cannot be trusted. Being the head of experiments on the Werewolves this spiked grey haired tanned leathered skin individual with a scarred up face from many attacks from the Werewolves and blood shot-grey eyes from lack of sleep has earned the scariest spot in the Dearhart Clan Series.
Washington Lee Jefferson - 6’2 Black as night type of man with a ruggedly cut posterior was born a slave. He is the picture of man in its best of all forms. Although Washington cares none for his appearance. Wash works for the secret corner of the Defense Department that hopes to revamp the packs and use them once again as weapons.
Wash caring little for the packs relies on the thrill of fight and the future demise of the werewolves
Wash was turned by Owen and since that there is no Were that he hates more than Owen. It is ultimately this fact that has truly enslaved Wash and set him against his own kind.
Bry – Bry Dearhart is the oldest of the clan and second up to Owen as far as leadership goes with the pack. Typically, the fighter then a man of the cloth Bry turned down leading the clan. At 6’, red Haired, mustache along with beard, lightly lit green eyes, and not so much Irish looking or as pale as one would think for his hair color this Celtic tattoo etched lined man comes bearing a saying within his arms. The Gaelic words are as such (faoi –“under”…cath=”battle”… ocras-“hunger”… beatha-“life”)---
Karina – At 5’5, long flowing blond hair, pale blue eyes, and bronze skin this muscular but not bulky half Shapeshifter half Werewolf is all but the INK that will set the clan to a new existence…. Or none at all.
