I know that on my post No Review Today, I said I didn’t like reviewing books out of order and that’s still true so I know what you’re thinking, why am I reviewing this one when it’s the sixth one and not the first one? Doing a little research on it, I noticed that it could also be a stand alone, the characters haven’t made appearances anywhere else in the series so, I thought, why not?
I got to page 185 and I just couldn’t go on anymore. Honestly, a great plot idea, the characters were a good idea too but the execution of it is what really threw me off.
This is the sixth book in the series, the only reason I got it instead of the first book is because I saw it in a free bin at a discount book store and I liked the cover. The teaser on the back also sounded good so, I added it to my TBR pile.
There wasn’t any excitement and it was taking way too long to get anywhere. Even though it’s called Bride of the Wolf it didn’t really focus on the wolf part, just the two characters trying not to show emotion to each other. While that’s good in context, if it focuses just on that and it takes you a couple of chapters to get where you’re going, it just makes for a boring story.
I can’t even imagine what the first book is like, unless it’s really good and the writing just got tired.
Maybe if it was set in a more modern time or it didn’t stick to the mundane and highlighted upon the wolf aspect of it or it was more fast paced, I felt like I was fighting my way through sand, it would be better.
I’ve never really connected to historical stories though, it’s just so slow. I don’t know who I would recommend this too, especially since I didn’t finish it.
Thank you for reading my review.
