Release Day Review! Wolf Tales 11: Anton (Wolf Tales 11) by Kate Douglas
Wolf Tales 11: Anton - Kate Douglas

 

 

Tala and Lisa, both in the final stages of pregnancy, are kidnapped and become pawns in a terrible plot to assassinate the president of the United States. 
 
Unwilling to concede to the kidnappers’ demands, the men summon Anton for help. Devising a daring rescue plan, the über alpha calls upon the pack to lose themselves in an erotic encounter like never before. Drawing on their sexual energy will enable him to outmatch even their strongest enemies.
 
But Anton’s plan requires a sacrifice even the wizard didn't intend to make.

 

 

 

WOW! Anton is thrilling and sinfully sexy!

 

The wolf shifter world has an original, complex and dynamic culture that sets it apart from other shifter worlds and Kate Douglas brings it to brilliant life with well-written words and multifaceted, sexy characters that draw readers in and keep them coming back for more. The stories are super-hot and make wet dreams seem like child’s play in comparison, unless of course your wet dreams include the Chanku characters.

 

All the previous characters compose multiple scenes of the book which keeps readers hopping and enjoying some sizzling sex scenes. The book is full of emotional turbulence that runs a gauntlet of feelings as the characters overcome adversity and experience joy. Anton, being the pack alpha, really pulls readers into the story with his mysterious and strong personality, of course all of these characters have strong personalities, which provides lots of stimulus for readers.

 

The book starts off with one red hot scene and then immediately takes readers on a thrilling ride as suspense as a dangerous enemy sets the Chanku on a perilous journey that pulls them in different directions and has them dealing with some very difficult decisions and even the goddess, Eve has to lend a little assistance which keeps readers on the edge of their seat.

 

The stories is the Wolf Tales series really need to be read in order if you want fully enjoy the experience, but at the same time as long as you have a good understanding of the Chanku world you can enjoy Anton’s book if you’ve missed the previous one. As for me, reading this book was one steamy experience that had me glued to the pages and I really can’t wait for the re-release of number 12.

Requiem for the Wolf
Requiem for the Wolf (Tales from the Tiarna Beo Book 1) - Tara Saunders
This has a dark feel to it. There are some pretty graphic scenes, but it's not nasty gruesome. I like that in a book, a lot.

The gadhar attacked again, slashing the loose skin on the wolf's neck with dagger-sharp claws. Bragg lunged, his knife finding flesh this time scoring a short line of red along the wolf's haunch.

This is pretty unique from other books that sit in the same genre/type, also good. The writing is good, very heavy on content. By that I mean there is a lot packed in and it is very detailed. My favorite scene was in the beginning where the main character is at a market of sorts and he meets up with a bad guy Lupe who he had been tracking. 

The writing is good. There are no plot holes that stood out. Not many, if any, typos. I would have liked to see more descriptive summary concerning the setting. They were described, and I got a good idea, but it seemed to lack the beautiful wording that a lot of fantasy books have.

All in all a good read. I hope to see more from this author and really am impressed. I didn't know own what to expect as I have never read anything from her prior to this. I look forward to reading her work as she builder her skills as a writer.

Review ebook provided from Netgalley.

Princess Novels (Kid edition)
The Hero and the Crown - Robin McKinley
Sleeping Ugly - Jane Yolen,Diane Stanley
A Wolf at the Door and Other Retold Fairy Tales - Ellen Datlow,Terri Windling

Yesterday, I posted a list of books in honor of Disney's new princess Elena.  My cousins (okay, really, technically, my cousin and his wife, but writing cousin-in-law is just strange.  They are both cousins) liked it, and I realized that I didn't really include any kids books,  mostly because I don't have kids.  But my cousin does.  So, here is a kid version.  Most of the books would be classified as children's as opposed to YA.  This version is just princesses.

 

1. The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley  - Technically YA, but McKinely's books always feature strong woman/girls.  This one is about a princess who kills dragons.

 

2. Sleeping Ugly by Jane Yolen - an unusual princess story to say the least.

 

3. Everafter High (series) by Shannon Hale - I had various reactions to the freebie character introductions for the series.  But Cinderella character, Ashlynn, is well done, and the idea is interesting.

 

4. Princess Evangeline and Fiery Fiasco by Kristen Thomas - I picked this up free for kindle, and while there could be more showing and not telling, it is about a princess with spunk.

 

5. Greek Princess Stories (series) by Kim Charity.  While not strictly following the Greek myths, this series gives characters, such as Helen, more to do than look pretty.

 

6. A Wolf at the Door ed. by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling.  This is Datlow/Windling first collection of fairy tale retellings for children, and there are two others in the series.  All are wonderful.  This has one of my favorite retellings of Cinderella, "Cinder Elephant".

 

7. Ordinary Princess  by M. M. Kaye - she is that way because she was dropped as a baby.  Lovely story.

A must read book!!
The Fifth Moon's Wolf (The Fifth Moon's Tales) - Monica La Porta

I received an ARC of 'The Fifth Moon's Wolf' from Monica in exchange for an honest review.

This is an AMAZING start for Monica's new series "The Fifth Moon's Tales", set in the future with a mash-up of Victorian, Steampunk, Paranormal, genre's we are no longer on Earth. After Earth became inhabitable, werewolves, vampires & human's made the journey across stars to inhabit Lupine, but deep space travel had side affects none of the werewolves tavelling could ever foresee. Without the moon they where born under, they no longer could turn a person with a bite & their females found themselves barren... As the Blessed Bride to be Mirella has always been kept save, tutored in everything she needs to know for when she turns 25 & is to marry her werewolf husband. Valentine Lobo is the last werewolf on Lupine, knowing the dark secret involved in the making of Blessed Brides, he strives to keep emotionally distant from his bride.

I can't say much more about this, you REALY need to read it for yourself, there is so much going on. I feel sorry for Mirella when I find out the dark secret that only those with long lives would know, then having her husband keep her at a distance, even knowing why he does it, makes liking Valentine difficult at first. Even with my disliking of Valentine, I found myself riveted by the story, not being able to put the book down until the end. But now I need to read the next book in the series.

A Wolf at the Door and Other Retold Fairy Tales Edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling
A Wolf at the Door and Other Retold Fairy Tales - Delia Sherman,Terri Windling,Ellen Datlow,Jane Yolen

My partner loves anthologies. All kinds of anthologies and she is always trying to get me to read them. I finally got around to reading A Wolf at the Door and I adored it! Getting to read fairy-tale retellings written by Neil Gaiman, Tanith Lee, Garth Nix, and so much more was a complete delight. My favorite story was The Kingdom of Melting Glances by Katherine Vaz. It was beautifully written and told that I fell in love with her story. I've never read anything by Vaz but now, I definitely need to read more of her work.

 

With anthologies, you're going to have some hits and misses. I didn't love every single story in this collection, but I loved the majority of it so I have to recommend it to anyone out there who loves fairy-tales or any of the authors feature in this work. It might become a new favorite of yours.
