Pantom Wolf by Kia Carrington-Russell

Book Description:

Sia is a Phantom Wolf. Neither dead nor alive—and rotting from the inside—she is on the edge of her curse. Once a Phantom Wolf has been created, they hunt their blood pack and slaughter all their loved ones. Except for Sia, who woke years after her death to find herself rampaging through the land on a lonely path. She continues to run from the rival pack that hunts her because she is a Phantom Wolf. Attracted to a scent, Sia finds her old best friend, who is now a grown woman. Having once saved Keeley, Sia takes the role of protector yet again, despite Keeley’s involvement with the mysterious Alpha, Kiba, and his kin brother, Saith. An ambush separates the pack and the four of them blindly fight the new warriors that attack them: desperately needing to find out where the attacks are coming from, as Sia has vowed to protect Keeley. But at what cost? Now being chased, Sia finds herself conflicted by the mortal and spirit world while trying to protect her kin. Sia must confront her fears, as well as the human lover who killed her many years before. It is not only survival Sia contends with, but her own façade that must be broken so that she may find peace within herself once more.

The scenes painted before me were unusual,  but what isn't the first time ventured? As the depth of the story consumed me those "odd" descriptives became comfortable and expected.  Phantom Wolf has an extensive emotional allure to it. The philosophy behind what I imagine to be the worst curse on can fathom had me wondering why more authors have yet to explore these basic instinctual vulnerabilities.
Sia's experiences shattered my heart. The love and the strength she was able to maintain after an onslaught of tragedies is amazing. Kalib stole my heart from the beginning. His compassion and acceptance are his most endearing qualities. By the end I was bawling my bloody eyes out. A book that is so dynamic and can pull my emotions free so easily is a 5 star novel.
