Coyote Run by Rhian Cahill
3.5 out of 5 Licks
Prequel to the Coyote Hunger series. Forced to make the heart wrenching decision to leave Whispering Mountains, Rowan Wilder isn’t about to go without securing her bond with Quinn MacClellan. Neither expected their first time to be on the forest floor or while running to escape a madman but when it comes to claiming their mate, nothing can stop the hunger from burning out of control and consuming them both.
Publisher’s Note: This is not a standalone story; it has a cliffhanger ending. The next book in the series, Coyote Home, is needed to reach a satisfactory conclusion.
Right of the bat this started with some action and steam. You could really feel the characters desperation and sadness. This is a prequel to the series so it just gives a little bit of a backstory but I’m definitely interested to see how things will play out in the series. It leaves you with a bittersweet feeling and wanting to see things resolved.
Coyote Home by Rhian Cahill

Book One in the Coyote Home series. Coming home was never going to be easy for Rowan Wilder, but after six years she didn’t think it would be this hard. First she can’t control her inner coyote, then she has to deal with her mate and the madman out to get them both. Determined to take her rightful place in the pack, Rowan must face each hurdle and succeed. To fail could mean losing her life. Quinn MacClellan is more than ready for the return of his mate and he’ll do anything to keep her safe and by his side. He couldn’t protect her years ago, but things are different now and he won’t let anything or anyone separate them again. Together they’ll confront all obstacles and ensure the future they both deserve.
This one takes place 6 years after the prequel, and I would definitely recommend reading that before this one otherwise you sort of feel like you walked in late to a movie. This book semi explains what happens to make Rowan have to leave but leaves a lot of unanswered questions, so the prequel would give you a little more of an explanation. But you can read it without reading that one first. Overall it was a very sweet read. A little bit of action and some really hot sex. Both characters are extremely likeable, and so are the secondary characters. So I’m interested in seeing their stories. I loved the romance between Rowan and Quinn. It was very honest and real. I liked how they stayed faithful to each other after being apart for so long. The only thing I didn’t really like was that it just sort of ended. I would have liked a little bit more of a resolution in this one. I’m sure it will happen in the rest of the series but your left feeling that it’s slightly incomplete. So I’ll definitely have check out the rest of the series.
