The Wolf Road - 61% PAUSE
The Wolf Road: A Novel - Beth Irwin Lewis

I've really been struggling with this book. Frankly, I'm a little bored with it, and had I tried to read it in text format rather than on audio I would have DNF'd it early on, because an entire 150 page book told from the first person perspective of an ignorant, nearly feral, teenaged protagonist, using hillbilly vernacular, is incredibly tiresome. On audio, Amy McFadden is almost able to rescue it with her fantastic performance, but she can't cover for the fact that her character really doesn't have anything interesting to say or that this post-apocalyptic world really doesn't make much sense. 

 

I'm over half-way through the book, so I hate to DNF it outright at this point, but since I keep turning it off to listen to something more interesting, I think I'll have to put this on pause and think about coming back to it later. 

 

I was listening to this for the Modern Masters of Horror square, but I'm switching over to Kill Creek - Scott Thomas,Bernard Setaro Clark, which I've seen several good reviews for.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Queen Wolf (Triad Mates #1) by Erin M. Leaf
Queen Wolf (Triad Mates #1) - Erin M. Leaf

Queen Wolf is the first book in the Triad Mates series, and we start off with a boom! Quite specifically, the boom that follows something being set alight. Avery has decided to burn her ex's old porn magazines, and takes great delight in doing so. Although part of a pack, Avery doesn't feel like she belongs, for a number of reasons. However, times are a-changing for the pack, and that has a major impact on Avery and her life too.

I love Erin M. Leaf's books, and always look forward to reading them. This book was no different. We have wolves, we have a triad, and we have sneaky stuff going on that is causing trouble for them all. What could be better?

First books in a new series can always be tricky. It's hard getting the world building just right without info-dumping on the poor reader. However, this is set in 'our' world, which means the author has been able to concentrate on the pack and how it works, including the problems it now finds itself with.

I loved the world building in this book, and that, coupled with strong characters and no editing or grammatical errors, means I thoroughly enjoyed this story and can't wait for the next book in the series. Absolutely recommended by me.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

great book and great characters
A Billionaire Wolf for Christmas - Terry Spear

Aidan was a gray wolf shifter as well as a doctor who needed new wolves to test. He was searching for a cure for the lupus garou’s reduced longevity. He must now wait until after the Christmas holiday. Maybe his twin brother  Rafe was right. Perhaps joining Rafe and his family early would give Aidan the break he needed and he would gain new insight into what was happening to their kind. Aidan was worried he'd fail in his mission when so many people were counting on him. The concern among the wolf shifters was that if something in their environment or genetics had caused them to live shorter lives , their lives may continue shorten and they would eventually age quicker than humans. Aidan was known to be obsessed and a workaholic. Ted and Mike were Aidan’s bodyguards his brother had hired to protect and guard  Aidan and they were surprised to see him out of the lab so early that day. Then Aidan got a call from Everett Johnson from a wolf pack in Montana. The Seattle pack would not let test their blood they didn’t even allow any other wolves near their territory just their own pack. Everett called to let them know an older wolf had been shunned for no good reason by the pack leader after losing his mate. If he could find the wolf-Nick he might let Aidan take a sample. Dr Holly Gray was going looking for Nick alone as she previously couldn't find him. Aidan had stooped a little boy who was a shifter from the store he was being kidnapped but Aidan stopped the woman even after she hit in the head with her purse that had a gun in it. But He still help on to the woman and she was arrested. Holly and her sister had the little boy- Joey with them when he got away from them.  Holly hadn’t met another male wolf she was instantly attracted to until she met Aidan. Holly met with Aidan and Ted and Mike and her brother-Greg was with her and they spotted Nick but it was too late to go to him. They would try again the next morning.

I loved this book -again the author did an absolutely great job. I didn’t want to put this down. I loved Aidan and Holly together and how they interacted. I loved that Aidan and his brother Rafe were willing to help any wolf who needed help if they could. I was glad Ronald was changing his way as well as Jared I loved how Rafe was so protective of Aidan. I loved the plot and pace of this book. Happily I can find nothing to criticize in this book.I love the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend it.

Review: The Wolf Lords by F.T. McKinstry
The Wolf Lords - F.T. McKinstry

The Wolf Lords by F.T. McKinstry is the second book in The Fylking series. We follow a sorcerer, and the King’s Rangers in their search for a hedge witch, who they believe hold the secrets that could change the outcome of the war.

Plot 5/5: Interesting plot that kept me intrigued. 

Characters 5/5: This series has some of my favorite characters, who are average people with familiar emotions that bring these characters to life.

World building 5/5: Incredible world building.

Pacing 4/5: Steady pace with spurts of action, though I felt some areas of the story were bogged down with too many details that were unnecessary, but it did help to create the world the author was trying to convey.

Writing 5/5: Great writing.

Overall 4.8

Widower meets woman who is a force of nature
Rescued by the Wolf - Kristal Hollis

When Grace Olsen swerves to miss a wolf the last thing she expects is to be rescued by a naked man. She also doesn't expect that her attraction to the gruff widower Rafe Wyatt is going to build. Rafe hasn't really thought about wanting another woman since poachers killed his wife and child and now he's starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel. However he has to convince her as well as himself that this relationship could work. Then there's the fact that she knows nothing about werewolves or Wahyas (as they are in this world) even if she's about to be the godmother to one.

Fun read, you could see the reluctance to get hurt again in both characters.

 

Using this for the Shifters square.
