(kindle) Ravaged Beware a Wolf Scorned by David Wellington
S The conclusion seemed a bit abrupt and I thought one thing that occurred was a little odd after all the time spent leading up to it Additionally there was no xplanation of what happened or might have happened after the last scene If there was to be a third book then no problem with the The Kings Spy (Thomas Hill, ending it s just a cliffhanger However it doesn t seem like the author left much room for another book in which case some sort ofpilogue would ve been nice I realize this is a bit vague but I don t want to give away what happened in those last few pages Unlike what another reviewer said I wasn t really satisfied with the Doctor Illuminatus ending however I d still recommend Overwinterspecially if you liked Frostbite There is just something
special I have found in David Wellington Not only did I love Frostbite but Overwinter just solidified I have found in David Wellington Not only did I love Frostbite but Overwinter just solidified much I am in love with Wellington as a writer I knew that there was a high possibility that it would The Real Witches Kitchen end with a huge sacrifice I was right I knew that as the heroine Chey was in the clear but I pretty much knew from the previous book that anyonelse was free game I knew that it would be unrealistic for Chey to The Preachers Kid ever forgive Monty fully I wouldn t have but I would respect all that he had done for me I think in a deep part of herself Chey will never forget nor will shever admit that she was actually love with Monty and that made her a true and real heroine for me that I will forever respectEvery character in this werewolf series made me smile They were well thought out there were distinct roles they all had to play They O Testamento even had one hell of a great villain and god she was soasy to just hate I won t force anyone to read this book I won t Gangbang Slut even recommend it I love it and I love it so much that I want to keep it to myself for all time I would love for other people to appreciate it as much as I did It had this uniueness that made me what to be a better writer On I move to David Wellington s zombie series The second and concluding book in his werewolf series David Wellington has written probably one of the most interesting and horrifying stories about the lycanthrope Aftervents in the first novel FROSTBITE this novel finds Cheyenne Clark paired up with Montgomery Powell the werewolf who cursed her with the ability to change into a monstrous killer wolf at One Con Glory each full moon They re in the wilds of northern Canada and headingven farther North searching for the rud cure for their deadly affliction However when a mysterious woman Lucie from Powell s past shows up Chey realizes they will have than they bargained for And when they come to discover an Defying Shadows (Rising Shadows ex Russian Special Forces soldier with ties to Lucie is bent on killing them all the trio will find out their time is very short indeed Because the weapon he holds is something none of themxpectedWh 35 Stars Ravaged is the second book in the Werewolves series by David Wellington and I must say it was a much better read than the first book Cursed I did The Great Orange Leonard Scandal (Tall Tales Series; 4) enjoy Cursed but this was a muchxciting
And Engaging ReadThe Story Isengaging readThe story is of mythology ancient stories and spirits There are a few new spirits introduced as well as meeting Powell s spirit friend Dzo again who I find uite funny All the characters are fleshed out nicely with a lot of interesting backgrounds The introduction of another werewolf causes the dynamics between Chey and Powell to change uite a bitThe werewolf introduced is Lucie a woman from Powell s past She s very different from Chey in that she loves her wolf and she wants Powell which of course creates a lot of tension between the group It also brings problems when in wolf form as the females have to fight to determine who is the alpha female of the packPowell tries to deal with his feelings towards Chey which are getting stronger by the day but Chey still isn t sure how she feels about him and considering their checkered past which I won t go into in case some of you haven t read Cursed I don t blame her Although I still want them to be togetherThere is considerably information about the werewolves and how they volved where they come from Chey and Powell can t remember anything from when they are in wolf form and vise versa This gets a little complicated when they are being hunted by Varkanin a man with bloodthirsty revenge in mind as Chey and Powell can t warn their wolf counterparts of what is happeningAlthough there are many chapters which are just from the wolves perspective the story isn t any less xciting Wellington does well at describing the wolf hierarchy their behaviours and their A Fairly Honourable Defeat emotionsspecially when it came to their hatred for humans which keep my attention and the pages turningThe nding was the one aspect I didn t really like I didn t like what happened to Powell at all And the way Chey felt about Powell at the nd was very disappointing I wished it had Elisabeth Shue 135 Success Facts - Everything You Need to Know about Elisabeth Shue ended differentlyVERDICT Ravaged is a great read There s plenty of action and interesting characters making it a thoroughlynjoyable second instalment After reading the The Man Without a Face ending I m not sure there will be a third book in this series but I do hope so I would love to find out what the future holds for these characters 45 Howling Stars for OverwinterWow What an amazing action packednding to the werewolf series Davi. Kle to the bone her old life nded and she became the very monster that haunted her nightmares for years Wors. ,
D Wellington s werewolves are wonderful I love the idea of the human and the wolf fighting for domination over the same body The wolf hates it s human form and would do anything in it s power to kill that human Powell and Chey have teamed up and are fighting to survive as they are hunted by the Canadian government Powell is starting to fall in love but can Chey ver love him after all the pain he has caused her Add to the mix Monty s creator Lucie Lucie has come back from Siberia to claim what is hers Monty is her creation and she will not allow him to love another Lucie s a white innocent looking worlf but she is pure Gone (Gone, evil and cannot be trusted She s accepted being a werewolf and loves the power Humans are her prey and she has no respect for human life Lucie however has messed with the wrong man and now has a former Spetsnaz on her trail Overwinter is full of suspense action and drama As this trio fights to survive they also battle within their own pack Alliances are formed and no one can be trusted as friends becomenemies and nothing is what it seams A good seuel that is fifty percent action that like the first book didn t bore me and feel like it was just thrown in there for the sake of being action packed and fifty percent mythology This is one of the best and most original werewolf origin stories that I have read Also there is a love triangle thing going on I found this book to be consistent in how good it is but it never reached the level of awesomeness that Cursed did I didn t really sense the danger of the hunt I felt that the biggest dangers to Chey were Lucie and Chey s wolf The writing is something that I really liked I find Mr Wellington s words Threads Of The Shroud easy to visualise and this adds the idea that the book triggers some mental movie Mental in the sense that it s playing in my head not any other sort of mental just to clarify or dig myself in a hole The author s storytelling ability is incredible and I loved the back stories and also the research that he must have put into the book Chey I still liked her in this book She goes through a lot in the duration of Ravaged and if I m honest I probably would ve just given in That just proves that she s a fighter and a survivor and you just can t help but admire herPowell he grew on me as I read this book He makes a good alpha male and he has all the ualities I like in a leading man He s caring yet protective and he d do anything for his woman It s an admirable trait in a guy Lucie Afterverything that was All Seated on the Ground eluded to in the first book I wasxpecting from Lucie She was painted out as some sort of manipulative psychopath and that never really happened for me There were a couple of moments like that but nothing concrete that said Hi I m Lucie and
I Ve Lost My Mindve lost my mind wasn t a likeable character and I didn t really feel anything for herVarkanin He s the guy in this book that s trying to kill Chey and Powell but the one he really wants is Lucie His vendetta is Untitled. explained in the book and as bad guys go I liked him He s very distinctive how can you not be with blue skin and very focussed on what he feels he had to do I did point out that he was blue didn t I He s also Russian It was different you don t really come across blue Russians whyver not is my uestionSharon She s a character that I would ve loved to know about Her wariness of Chey was 100% understandable and if I was her I would ve been the same Her strength was something that I admired and I loved the way that she was her own woman and made her own decisions Overall I njoyed this slightly less than its predecessor but that doesn t mean that I didn t like it The thought that must ve gone into this book and the amount Of Research Astounds Me It research astounds me It planned to me and it s been xecuted well If you read and Against All Odds enjoyed book one then you should definitely read this one It closes Chey s story in a satisfactory way In fact I d say that this is one of the best werewolf novels I ve read Ever Cheyenne and Powell have been slowly warming up toach other since Powell turned Chey into a werewolf Then Lucie comes along Lucie was the one who turned Powell and they have a long history together Powell loves Chey but can t turn Lucie away The three become an uneasy pack made complicated by the fact that Chey s wolf is taking over her human side too With Lucie comes a dangerous werewolf hunter who will stop at nothing to get his revenge Can they find a cure for Chey before it is too lateThe beginning of this book was so promising Lucie was badass and I liked the way Chey and Powell s relationship was going ven with the complication of Lucie Then it sort of lost me with all the animal spirits and finding a cure and the hunter or maybe it was just that I had to stop reading to read a book for book club and I couldn t get
back into it There was a lot of action at the nd just not nough of Cheyinto it There was a lot of action at the nd just not Against All Odds enough of Chey Powell I felt like I totally lost Powell at thend as well as Chey as her wolf begins to take over The hunter was an interesting fellow but I didn t feel like I got Sleep, Circadian Rhythms, and Metabolism enough of his background and his intense need for revenge with Lucie I know the facts but I wantedmotion out of him It was a good wrap up for this two book series but overall I think I Treasons, Stratagems, And Spoils enjoyed Frostbite. E the only one who can understand what Chey has become is Powell the man or wolf who's doomed her to this fat. What a fast and furious ride this short series has been I loved both books both drove me mad with anticipation never knowing which way it would go This second book delved into the ancient spirit gods histories and the myth behind the Were spinning one fantastic tale I will miss the charactersven the hated ones the author did a wonderful job of developing them I felt like I knew them They became a black branch in the old family tree which of course they marked and tore at There was the right amount of Payment Due everythingnough horror Vampireville (Vampire Kisses, enough hatenough love Pirate of the Pacific (Doc Savage, enough hopenough intrigue and The Rich and the Profane (Lovejoy, enough uestions to make it complete This author does not follow the format found in so many of the books I read The lack of what Ixpected threw me off a bit I Turbulence expected the normal HEA that is so common I was reaching for it between the words When it didn t go how Ixpected I was Tropical Bioproductivity exhilarated and a bit shocked Dzo is my favorite character and stole the showHe has become one of my favorite go to authors and I can t wait to get of his work in my hands Top Read 2011Cheyenne is travelling with Powell the werewolf that killed her father and infected her and both are heading north deeper into the Artic to hide from the people that want them dead All they want is a uiet life but along their adventure Powell s crazyx lover shows up a blue skinned human is hunting them and it turns out there is a cure for lycanthropy As Chey slowly loses her mind as the dire wolf takes over her mind and body it s a race against time to find the cure But the cure reuires a sacrifice a big one Is the cure worth such a thing Or will it be too late for CheyPlease be aware that this review may contain spoilers before reading furtherI can t say how disappointed I was to find out this the second book was the last of David Wellington s werewolf series It was absolutely fantastic though and brought the series to a shocking but good Elizabeth Ann Seton end It s not a happynding so don t Die Postmoderne Konstellation expect otherwise but insteadmbrace it for what it is This series was never supposed to be all lovely with butterflies and a happily Folk Tales From the Soviet Union ever after The characters we know and love are at risk and we have no idea if they will survive Chey continues to be a likable heroine and we get to see her struggle to keep her humanity She remains strong throughoutven in the direst situations Oh she did cry she did break down and beg for her life but she always tried her best and never gave up Unlike other heroines she didn t whine all the time She may have made some hasty decisions but she really thought it was the best things to do I didn t consider her a dumb heroine at all #CHEY S FOR LUCIE WAS #s for Lucie was formed out of jealously but out of disgust at the woman s sense of right and wrong and just generally her ignorance Even I disliked her Chey did take advantage of Lucie s obsession with Powell and made her suirm but the couple were a mated pair anywayThere was no romance in the first and there isn t really any in this one ven though Chey and Powell did sleep together Chey could never really forgive Powell but there was something between them that couldn
t be ignored An attraction feelings Chey couldn t xplain Ibe ignored An attraction feelings Chey couldn t Tall, Dark Rich explain I I wanted them tond up together but was so glad when they didn t jump The Collector's Encyclopedia of Antique Marbles each other s bones when they first met They resistedach other until they couldn t any longerDzo has to be my favourite character and actually the hunter Varkanin We get to see animal spirits too which was a delight Varkanin was such a surprise clever polite and very deadly He proved to be a better hunter than Bobby Fenech from the first Well there wasn t much competition really As always the writing was superb I imagined Taught to Obey every setting with little difficulty the descriptions were so well detailedA great adventure one to remember I will be reading David Wellingtons vampire and zombie novels And I can t wait Red Lace 2011 Overwinter picks up where Frostbite left off with Chey and Powell travelling north away from Port Radium Powell still insists that there s a cure for lycanthropy and he s determined to find it Along the way Dzo turns up again as does a new character Lucie with whom Powell has a past Lucie wants Powell for herself and to make matters worse she s on the run from Varkanin a Russian who she s made annemy of Unofficially backed by the Canadian government which is determined to rid the country of werewolves for financial reasons Varkanin chases the foursome to the Arctic Circle while Powell looks for clues to a cure that no one is sure Learning to Dance in the Rain evenxistsThough Overwinter is similar to Frostbite Chey and Powell are being hunted and their wolves hatred of humans results in a body count in the seuel we learn about Powell and his past the origins of the curse and about spirits like Dzo An unforseen problem for one of the characters makes it Rebel (The Change, essential for them to find the cure uickly if they rever to hope for normal human lives again or as normal as can be after having been wolves who ve killed people There was plenty of action and I thought that the characters goal to rid themselves of their wolves made this book a interesting read than the first The one thing that I was a little disappointed with was the nding and by that I literally mean the last few page.
