Elijah Abbey and his family have claimed land that is the ancestral home of a group of werewolves.

Claiming the Land is the first book in the Wild Lands series. The plot is about the early cattle ranch settlers and ruthless claim jumpers in the Colorado territory.

There are two groups of humans, one bad and one good. Elijah’s family are the good humans. The Abbey family consists of a windowed father, three sons and a daughter-in-law. Elijah is the youngest son, the best shooter and gay. Elijah has no desire to kill the wolves, watching the Abbey encampment from a safe distance. This is not the case of the claim jumpers who kill the wolves for sport.

Werewolf Armand, who is one of the pack’s warriors, spends most of his time in wolf form. However, even as a wolf he is attracted to Elijah. With so many of the pack being killed by the bad humans, Armand approaches Elijah with a proposal: if they leave most of the forest untouched, the wolves will get rid of the bad humans for them.

A.J. Marcus and Caitlin Ricci have created an impressive saga. I especially enjoyed the pack’s code of respect traditions.
