Book Review: Madison's Song by Christine Amsden

Madison’s Song
By Christine Amsden
Genre: Dark paranormal romance

Her voice is enchanting; his soul is black…
Madison Carter has been terrified of Scott Lee since the night he saved her from an evil sorcerer – then melted into a man-eating monster before her eyes. The werewolf is a slave to the moon, but Madison’s nightmares are not.
Despite her fears, when Madison’s brother, Clinton, is bitten by a werewolf, she knows there is only one man who can help. A man who frightens her all the more because even in her nightmares, he also thrills her.
Together for the first time since that terrible night, Scott and Madison drive to Clinton’s home only to discover that he’s vanished. Frantic now, Madison must overcome her fears and uncover hidden strengths if she hopes to save him. And she’s not the only one fighting inner demons. Scott’s are literal, and they have him convinced that he will never deserve the woman he loves.
*Stand-alone companion to the Cassie Scot series

My Review
I will be the first to admit that I don't go out of my way to read novels where werewolves are a central theme, but I was curious about this book after checking out the description. I am a sucker for anything that includes magic.
Madison's Song is a fine example as to why reader should stretch out of their comfort zone and read something out of the norm - this book did not disappoint! I enjoy how Amsden described the wolves, their transformation, the way they interacted with their pack, and Scott - the alpha. 
While Madison is not a werewolf, she does a few gifts of her own and also has intense feelings for Scott after he a wild night of marking and saving her life. After reading this story, I am really interested in reading the first book, but I do not think it's necessary to do in order to fully appreciate Madison's Song.
Suspense, paranormal romance, and action is what you will find in this awesome book!
