Never have I laughed harder while reading a book Dana Marie Bell s personality shines in Shadow of the Wolf Having now read her Halle Pumas series but not et the Gray Court I am convinced this has been her best thus far This book was interesting for the simple fact that I have never read a book where the wolf was a wizard too They usually have a wolf dating a witch but never doing spells too Very interesting uick read I finished in a matter of 2 days Would have finished sooner if I didn t have to write a paper but got it done none the less I liked it In my opinion it is really hard to sell the character of a male witch to anyone it is just so lame in a way But the idea of combining that of a witch and a shifter just made him even hotter Dana can never let me down her collection of books are my most cherished because there is something just uniue about how she puts so much care into getting every detail right in all of her stories its just so adorable how she spins the tale of her characters romance I find myself sighing alot when I read one of her novels This is a polished up re release but I didn t read it in its previous incarnation I am a big Bell fangirl but I thought Shadow of the Wolf was a lot funnier than her other books I adored Lana s feistiness This book s plot is basically based on Fated Mate Syndrome but Lana didn t just be like Yay man Chris had to work for it I m really looking forward to the next book Hecate s Own Zach s story However I would have liked to seen a smidge world building I didn t feel like the world was revealed very smoothly as things would get explained after the fact Given the lighter tone I think this would appeal to fans of Eve Langlais s Furry United Coalition series This book just didn t work for me I liked Lana but I never did like Chris I think after he drugged her the first night he met her just to make sure she didn t leave I was out and he never did anything that redeemed him There was a little bit of a "plot with tons of sex I don t mind sex in my books in fact "with tons of sex I don t mind sex in my books
In Fact I Really fact I really it but it just didn t seem to fit in with the plot all that well There s all this danger going on and someone trying to kill Chris and Lana and all he can think about is sex Oh and if she doesn t mate him he dies which she knows I hate that plot point I also never really bought the reason Cole hated Chris so much as believable I did like the oungest brother a Cringe I didn t knooow that there was so much sex in itL but other than tthaat it was okaay I normally don t enjoy books about magic users although I love shifter romance so this was a pleasant break from all the biker books I ve been devouring latelyNo cheatingNo owomA bit of hol.
