Good Characters and story
Dark Moon Wolf (Calling the Moon Book 1) - Sarah E. Stevens

Julie is a single mother who works as a librarian with a four month old baby- Carson- had turned into a wolf puppy on the full moon. Julia is totally confused and decides to go look for Carson’s father- Mac. Julie never told Mac she was pregnant. Julie tries to get in touch with Mac but can’t so she decides to go to his hometown with Carson. Julie finds Carson’s grandparents  who belong to the pack. But Mac had been murdered and he isn’t the only one from his pack who has been murdered. Lily is the pack leader of Mac’s pack and Julie shows prejudice toward Lily. . But now someone is after Carson. Julie does found out she has recessive wolf genes which means if she was bitten she could turn into a werewolf or die. The genes make Julie a Dark Wolf. Max had been murdered in Las Vegas. With the help of a friend Sheila who julie finds out is a witch. and Eliza who was a werewolf and a few other werewolves and they start hunting for the murderers.  

I really enjoyed this paranormal book. I do wish it had been longer. But I liked the plot and pace. It had my attention from the first page until the last page. This can be emotional and choke you up at times. I felt this was well written. I loved it had a lot of twists and turns. There were: wolves, witches, suspense, murder, mystery, betrayal, wolf pup power play, politics, experiments, action, loss, family, a Dark Wolf, and a lot more. I loved how the author  showed us a lot of different kinds of wolves. I also really liked how Julie didn’t have any special powers but she did find ways to contribute and help to try to find the murderers. I liked the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend..

Dark Wolf - Kate Douglas

I blushed. Hardcore erotica. Not in the mood for something like this at the moment, though if you like paranormal and very graphic sex that at times can be a bit harsh, this is a good pick. Not for the sexually timid reader. Is well written.

Dark Moon Wolf (Calling the Moon #1) by Sarah E Stevens
Dark Moon Wolf (Calling the Moon Book 1) - Sarah E. Stevens

Julie is a librarian and a single mother with a newborn and just coming to grips with that. When, one full moon, her baby turns into a wolf pup.

 

Utterly confused she clings to the one person who may have answers – the father of her child. Only to find Mac is dead, murdered – and he’s not the first werewolf from his pack who has been targeted. And whoever took those wolves are now targeting her baby

 

 

 

This is one of those books where it’s a little weird that the protagonist is involved. I mean, Julie is human, completely human no special abilities, and she has an infant child in tow. Yes that baby has been threated and it’s understandable that she would want to stop this threat – but running towards it, playing amateur detective in a strange city with unknown enemies while carrying a baby along with you? That doesn’t seem reasonable or sensible. She’s not just running into danger like so many Urban Fantasy protagonist – but she decided to bring her baby along for the ride.

 

It’s one of the underlying issues of this book which can be hard to follow –the constant question of why the protagonist is even here. Why is she involved, why is she making decisions in this situation she knows so little about – it’s a perennial problem whenever we have a human protagonist in a supernatural book.

 

But it sits alongside a whole lot of things that are done so well. After all one of the minor conflicts of this book is Julie feeling so very out of place among the werewolves and the witches and being depreciating – without a huge amount of angst – in her own abilities, but still finding her own ways to contribute and help.

 

The leader of the werewolf pack is a woman. Yes, an actual woman alpha – and she openly pokes at the whole idea of a big hair man who would have to lead a werewolf pack. And there is a moment of girlhate with Julie deciding to make massive assumptions about Lilly because of her appearance – deciding she looks like “a stripper” and being generally shamy and contemptuous. But it’s all subverted by the fact she is the alpha and clearly powerful and capable and a more than decent leader. Julie’s prejudiced judgement are exposed to be exactly what they are in the face of her capability

 

And the main characters joining Julie in her mission to find out what happened to Mac (her ex) are both women – there’s Sheila her lifelong friend with her own supernatural secrets and Eliza a female werewolf (multiple female werewolves! It’s odd to say but this genre seems to have almost adopted a law that all werewolves must be male which makes this both so special and unique) with a lot of power and strength. In both cases – and with another female werewolf (another one!) companion of Mac’s, Julie does have moments of jealousy and feelings of inadequacy, thinking how much more attractive they are than her. But it’s presented very much that it’s her own insecurities being unreasonable rather than any actual fault on the part of the women. And Julie recognises it in herself as well and works through it.

 

 

I like the world building that goes into adding some level of depth to werewolf culture, some more elements and mysticism and the general moving away from werewolves and sheer physicality, violence and brutality that is so common. At the same time I would have liked to know more about it – and witchcraft – part of me thinks that Julie asked very few questions considering this whole supernatural world opened up in front of her and her baby boy is apparently part of it but at the same time given the immediacy of the threats she had to deal with and the new reality she had to absorb I can equally understand why she put all of that on the back burner. I think we can see that in the way she looks to integrate herself into the supernatural first before learning about the world as a whole. And on that – I have to say I absolutely love how she didn’t just leap at the hyper risky way she could be more fully part of the supernatural world. I mean, in this genre how many protagonist hear “you can do this but there’s a 50% chance you’ll die” and instantly leap at the chance, confident in all of their lovely plot armour? Julie is more sensible than that

Wolf Betrayed (The Dark Ridge Wolves Book 3)
Wolf Betrayed (The Dark Ridge Wolves Boo... Wolf Betrayed (The Dark Ridge Wolves Book 3) - Marissa Farrar Book: Wolf Betrayed (The Dark Ridge Wolves Book 3)

Publication Date: 4/19/2017

My Rating: 5 Stars


REVIEW

Wow what a sexy, short, hot read this was.
We get Chance who has been bullied by many of his pack mates. While out on a run he smells something, no someone he smells someone who belongs to him?

Maya is just your typical 20 something year old or is she?
She has worked hard in her very young life and when things take a horrible turn it will be up to the naked, gorgeous, scarred male to put her back together again.

I truly enjoyed this story in this series. I would suggest you start with book one although I think they are stand alone.

Kristof wants to avoid the human at all cost, but his wolf wants her as his own.

 

The big break Trudy Hollander’s small accounting firm needs has finally arrived, but unfortunately it comes with murder, mayhem and Kristof Farkas, a man she just can’t seem to resist. Even worse, Kristof is the CFO of Dark Wolf Enterprises—the one person who can pull the plug on the job that will take her company to the next level.

 

And then there are the assassins who can jump from three stories up and still be able to run away…

 

Kristof has no intention of giving in to his inner wolf and claiming Trudy. She’s human. Too fragile to withstand being a shifter’s mate. But the need to protect her is stronger than his resolve, and his desire is more powerful yet. He’ll fight with everything he has to keep her safe, both from those who would hurt her, and from himself.

WOW what a gripping opener. I was drawn in and taken on a paranormal mystery with likable characters and an intriguing plot.

 

Shifter Claimed was an enjoyable debut into the Dark Wolf Enterprises series by A.M. Griffin.

 

Trudy, human hired to audit an account for the Dark Wolf Enterprises. I liked her. When things got scary she kept it together. She also took what Kristof was, well.

 

Kristof, wolf shifter and one who hired Trudy to look into their funds. I liked him. I didn’t fall in love with him like his brothers, but I did enjoy his character.

 

Kristof, imprinted the moment he meets Trudy face to face. I liked that it’s not called mating, but imprinting. The imprinting was a different perspective than what I typically read in shifter romances. It was a fascinate concept. Their romance was sweet and spicy.

 

The one thing I didn’t care for was Trudy forgiving Kristof to quickly. He broke her heart. It was a very emotional scene and it felt like more needed to be done; before they reconciled and she forgave him.

 

We are introduced to Kristof’s brothers, they were appealing and fun. I can’t wait to read more about the bothers and find out what type of woman captures their hearts. The mystery is gripping. We do get some questions answered, but new questions arris. I’m curious to see how it all plays out.

 

Shifter Claimed had a lot to savor and enjoy. It’s an intriguing set up with a riveting mystery.
