Amaruq is a FTM transgender werewolf. Though confident in his own body, he runs up against the challenges of living and loving in a college environment. These pale when compared to the violence he is subjected to.

Nootaikok is a former tracker, a killer who is looking for a new lease on life. He finds his solace in Amaruq. But when that way of life is threatened by terrorists, he must reclaim his former training, despite his demons, or see his love die.

Can Amaruq and Nootaikok’s love rise from the ashes of disaster like the storied phoenix? 

Midnight Sons is the first book in the Wolf School series by author Emily Carrington.  I very much liked this book.  I love reading storylines that are different and out of the box. I had one problem that was pretty big in this story, to me I felt the main character of Amaruq who is said to be transgendered female to male is more two-spirited than trans. I think he embraces all of himself and does not see himself as one or the other gender-wise. I like that. I like that he is strong like that. I wish the author kept it as two-spirited. I think with the Native American ties it could be a real asset to explore that.   I liked the character a lot and I felt he was very complex and well thought out in many other ways.
Nootaikok is a former tracker. He is looking for a new lease on life. I like his bravery, his heart, and his acceptance. He is a good soul, and it shines in this story.
I really liked this story and I want more. I loved how original this story is and I love the themes it explores. I cannot wait for more. I truly think this is a must-read for anyone who loves to fall in love.
