Daniel and Mace are at Daniel’s mother’s compound, recovering from the ambush directed by a psychotic major and her female army. Observing Mace up close allows some of the women to change their opinion, regarding the rabid monsters versus a civilized pack. However, conflict is still brewing with a wolfman willing to start a war to take Mace's place.

Judgement is the third book in the Wolfman series. In this episode, Mace must demonstrate to Daniel’s former compound residents that he retained his humanity, in spite of the virus that turned most male survivors into violent wolfmen. Mace endeavors to reach an agreement to work together, ahead of facing extinction. However before Mace’s pack could be accepted by the humans, violence erupts in the form of a lethal challenge for the Alpha position. Witnessing the brutal combat, the humans are even more afraid of the wolfmen than before.

Daniel is caught in the middle of an emotional tug-of-war between his mother and Mace. Daniel’s mother fears for his safety, yet remaining would mean being alone with some women, as well as a bigoted redneck. Mace desires to keep his mate, Daniel, with him. Brannan Black has created an electrifying saga, featuring the psychological effects of killing to stay alive. The battles are intense. The intimacy scenes are sensual. I thoroughly enjoyed Judgement.
