Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance...

It’s bad enough feeling different among the human crowd, but feeling different among wolves?

No one said returning to her pack would be easy, especially after ten years without them, but seventeen year old Caia Ribeiro is unprepared for the realities of the transition. Raised in a world where kids aren’t scared by bedtime tales of the bogeyman but by the real life threat of enemy supernaturals who might come creeping into their community to kill them in their sleep, Caia is used to the darkness; she’s used to the mystery and the intrigue of the ancient underworld war she’s bound to by chance of birth. What she’s having trouble with are pack members treating her with wary suspicion, the Elders tucking secrets behind their backs out of her sightline, and her young Alpha, Lucien, distracting her, with a dangerous attraction, from her decision to uncover the truth.

But as the saying goes ‘the truth will out’ and when it does, Caia will only have so long to prepare herself before the war comes pounding on their door threatening to destroy the safe, secret lives of the wolves… and the girl they protect. 

My Thoughts on the Book
This book caught me on surprise over and over again. Sometimes I knew what was going on, other times I was so surprised I was like "WHAT". There was only one problem I had with this book and that was because at the beginning of the novel it felt like it was starting a few chapters into the book. I was reading it and I felt like a missed something and tried going backwards in the ebook. It should have at least given a bit background before starting where it did, it just confused the hell out of me.

The characters were great, I love Caia and her personalty. She's shy at first because of being away from the pack for 10 years and wasn't sure how to act with the pack but slowly she grows into her self more and more. She becomes more confident in herself and what role she's to play in the pack. Though I hate how stubborn she is towards Lucien but I can understand it because of how much he lied to her. After what he lied about I would be pissed too. Lucien is a hot sexy werewolf who I would love to have mad at me. Something about werewolves and there aggressiveness always makes me love them more and more even if they are mean. Lucien is the alpha and shows possessiveness towards Caia and gets made when Sebastian hangs around her. I would wish he would suck up his werewolf pride and just confess! I was so pissed at how much they fraught because of something small and mutual.  Oh werewolf Jealousy is so hot!

The Romance is slow but you can see the attraction between Caia and Lucien. You can see how Caia is struggling with thinking that Lucien doesn't like her because of how plan she was. She kept telling herself how it was only a crush and nothing else. Then in the middle of the story, they sleep together and it destroyed everything. I'm not sure how the second book will be like hopefully there will be more Romance but I guess we'll see.

The plot was great, it took a whole new turn to a werewolf story because of how it's mixed in with magic and other supernaturals. Having Greek myths into the mix adds a great background to the story on where the supernaturals come from. Besides the little skip ahead on the first page of the book I really do like it. What I'm wondering if there will be any other love interest to make this series interesting in the next book. Since they are already mates in the first book not sure how that's going to work in the second book, guess I have to wait and see. This book is rated 16+ because of how much they discribe when the two main characters slept together. It was so hot but it's not meant for younger teens.

Cover Design

The eyes are so eye catching, the bright green eyes draw you in. It stands out so well against the blond hair. The title font fits so well with what the story is about. Though I would fix the second O int he word moon because it's just to close to the M when all other letters are spaced further apart and aren't touching except for the P though it's not as much as the O. The author's name looks so out of place being placed in the right corner of the book. It would of been better if it's placed further down the page next to the title.

It's a really great read if you like Werewolf, witches, fairies and vampires(they aren't shown yet except at very end). This book will keep you interested from start to finish.

4 out of 5 Howling Wolves
