A Wolf Apart is the second book in The Legend of All Wolves series by Maria Vale.
Can a human truly make room in her heart for the Wild?
Thea Villalobos has long since given up trying to be what others expect of her. So in Elijah Sorensson she can see through the man of the world to a man who is passionate to the point of heartbreak. But something inside him is dying…
Elijah Sorensson has all kinds of outward success: bespoke suits, designer New York City apartment, women clamoring for his attention. Except Elijah despises the human life he’s forced to endure. He’s Alpha of his generation of the Great North Pack, and the wolf inside him will no longer be restrained…

I was genuinely looking forward to reading A Wolf Apart. I enjoyed reading The Last Wolf so I had high hopes for this second book in the series.
The beginning of this book had a rough start, for me personally. I knew right away that something was up with Elijah and it’s not until a later that you find out what’s been on his mind. I could tell that something was up with Elijah because he didn’t care about anything. Frankly his attitude was very poor and I didn’t like his character.
Somewhere along the line, Elijah meets Thea and very, very slowly, Elijah becomes Elijah again.
I thought that there’d be two points of view in A Wolf Apart. The synopsis hints at a view aside from Elijah. I would’ve enjoyed reading Thea’s view a lot. I can appreciate that we only had Elijah’s point of view though.
In the end, I liked that A Wolf Apart is Elijah and Thea’s story (mostly Elijah’s story, admittedly). Yet I can’t deny the fact that when my two favourite characters in The Legends of Wolves came around, I was super happy about that. I loved seeing Tiberious and Silver in this book. I loved that the worlds are colliding, but of course they’re colliding, because they’re in the same world. Seeing everyone together is great.
I give A Wolf Apart, 3.5 stars.
