New Release Review! Dire Wolf Wanted (Ice Age Shifters #4) Carol Van Natta!

 

 

The magical world stands on the brink of war, unless two extraordinary shifters can bridge the gulf between them.

 

Dire wolf shifter and Shifter Tribunal agent Rayne Chekal poses as a prisoner to take down an illegal auction house that trafficks in shifters. Arvik Inuktan, agent for the Wizard Imperium and secret mythic shifter, infiltrated the auction staff with the same mission objective.

 

Rayne finds him sexy as hell, but confusing. Her inner wolf says they're in the mating dance, but to her, it feels more like a flailing tumble down the stairs. Arvik finds her irresistible, smart, and gorgeous. His inner beasts say Rayne is their mate, but he realizes he must track down his dark, forgotten past if he hopes to have a future with her.

 

However, when the auction house falls, they open a whole new can of worms. War is coming. Separated, they must figure out what they can do to stop this, and hope the other can forgive them for the choices they're forced to make.

 

When Rayne and Arvik meet on the battlefield, can they overcome their differences and work together to stop the evil, or will this war engulf the magical world?

 

Continue the enthralling paranormal romance with Dire Wolf Wanted, the fourth book in USA TODAY bestselling author Carol Van Natta's fun, action-filled, steamy-hot Ice Age Shifters™ series.

 

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

 

Dire Wolf Wanted is a complete story with an HEA and no cliffhanger, but your reading experience will be enhanced if you've read Shift of Destiny and Heart of a Dire Wolf first.

 

 

Excitement and adventure keep readers on the edge of their seat throughout the thrilling romance. Arvik and Rayne are more than they seem and this story quickly escalates as they both unleash their true selves to take on the bad guys and these strong, fascinating characters easily pulls readers right along with them. Some differences and some difficult choices will have to be overcome if they have any chance of a happy ever after but the chemistry sizzles and the passion heats things up even as circumstances force them apart which keeps readers wondering throughout this suspenseful romance.

 

The fast pace and smooth flowing plot ensures readers enjoy the thrills and adrenaline pumping intrigue throughout the story with daring escapes, rescues and an exhilarating battle that unites the lovers despite the fact that they are on opposing sides. This fascinating and wonderfully unique shifter world is a delightful reading experience that tantalize readers with magic, romance, action and suspense.

Dragonia by Craig A. Price Jr.
Dragonia: Rise of the Wyverns - Craig A. Price Jr.

Devarius is at the center of this tale. His family was devastated when he was just a kid and his new village ruined by the Dragon Riders. Now he leads a small group of ~30 people to possible safety with the Resistance. Along the way, he makes an amazing discovery: Wyverns! This might just well be the answer to how to defeat the Dragon Riders, in time.

It’s a cute, quick story that incorporates many fantasy tropes. It’s fun brain candy that doesn’t take much thought to enjoy it. The story moves along quickly with little pause for character development or development of the world or magic systems.

The ladies don’t do much in this story and that was a disappointment. In the first half of the story, Devarius and his little group are being hunted and trying to locate the Resistance. Once they do find help, Devarius and his friend Paedyn are informed that their society is all about equality. Men and women of any ethnicity will be given equal opportunities. Yes! I was excited because I felt this would be a good way to force your characters into some growth. Alas, that is not what happens. The ladies are underrepresented for the entire story. Aquila, our main female character, is simply a romantic interest and doesn’t add to the plot at all. There is one female guard who has a name and even gets a few lines, but they are all of a flirtatious nature…. and then, poof! She’s gone. I felt the few nods to the ladies were added as after thoughts and their characters were never fully incorporated into the story.

The wyverns are fun but I wish their magical abilities had a bit more depth. They come in different colors and each color corresponds to a different ability. Pretty straight forward and simplistic. I hope the story develops this further in the next book.

Devarius gets some sword training and he sets his heart on having a special sword made: a mashup of the straight Bastard sword and a Flamberge (which has wavy edges). A local blacksmith (named predictably Smithy) puts a lot of thought and trial & error into creating this blade. A lot of time was spent on this and I felt it could have been shortened up to give more time for the basics of the story.

Aquila has skills with a bow, or so we are told. Again, I felt this was tacked on after the fact. While on the run from the Dragon Riders, the group needed food yet Aquila’s hunting skills (which she learned from her dad) aren’t ever used. In fact, we only hear about these skills long after the fact. Towards the end, Aquila once again has the opportunity to show off her skills by joining a fight against the Dragon Riders. However, Devarius won’t let her join in because he’d be too distracted worrying about her.

Sigh…. Devarius, that sounds like a ‘you’ problem and not Aquila’s problem. Someone wasn’t paying attention at the Gender Equality training.

All together, it’s a fun little piece of fiction that moves at a swift clip. Nothing deep here but it is entertaining. 3/5 stars.

The Narration: Reuben Corbett gives a really good performance on this narration. All of his characters have distinct voices and his female voices are believable. He makes a really good Devarius and I loved his impish Paedyn. I could always tell Paedyn was up to something by his voice. There were no technical issues with this recording. 5/5 stars.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Craig A. Price Jr.. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Nothing Special
Mantrap (The Wyverns Book 1) - L.M. Somerton

Mantrap is one of those books that should've, would've, could've been better and that makes it all the more disappointing. L. M. Somerton introduces us to The Wyverns Motorcycle Club. It’s a tough, wild biker gang whose members have tattoos, oversize muscles, grrrrrr attitudes and all have a taste for men. The leader of the gang is named Rogue. I should've known right there. He and the gang are forced to kidnap Orlando and to be honest absolutely nothing new happens.
*Should have, not rushed the story and taken time to flush it out.
*Would have, benefited from serious character development.
*Could have, been something special even if we read the story again and again if the author had just taken some time.
I assume this is the beginning of the series but I think, to be honest, it's going to have to continue without me.

The Wyverns' Treasure - R.L. LaFevers,Kelly Murphy The third installment of the Nathaniel Fludd: Beastologist series, it builds slowly an overall plot as Nate continues to learn about the fantastical creatures that it will one day be his duty to protect, while fending off the unwelcome attention of the evil side of the family and wondering and hoping if his missing parents could possibly be alive!
