"Who says hunting is a man's sport!"

Jilly has a lot on her plate, she saves the animals from the local hunters and poachers, she protects her wolf who has emotional issues, and when she's not running the local bait shop, she's fighting for the protection of animal rights. Dylan is an avid hunter, he loves the sport of hunting. The only thing he doesn't like is wolves, which is the one animal Jilly can shift into. Dylan has had feelings for Jilly for a while, but the two seem to butt heads more often than not. Jilly knows she must protect those she cares for, even if it means giving up the one she loves.

Anna Volk creates a delightful cast of characters in Walking in the Shadows. Jilly is a fun, expressive female that isn't afraid to get her hands dirty in any aspect of life. Dylan complimented her well with his silent strength. The story delves into deep subjects and manages to tie them in well with the main story. Jilly's ability to forgive could rival a saint. I enjoyed the incorporation of animals and humans interacting. When one of the forest animals died, I wanted to march right in the pages and go a hunting... and not for animals!

There was one thing that pulled me out of the story. The main character, Jilly, discusses ebooks, defending the plight of great authors that don't get the recognition because they aren't released by big publishing houses. It wasn't the defense that pulled me from the story but the question: Why would a shape shifting owner of a bait shop know the plight of e-published authors. It would be a shame indeed, if the last thing someone remembered from an otherwise delightfully entertaining book was a characters view on ebooks.

Jilly and Dylan fell in love because they were made for each other. Where one had a weakness, the other had a strength. Anna Volk writes with humor and emotion, creating a vivid world to get lost in. Walking in the Shadows: Jilly is a perfect read to escape to.
