but that s only part the plotSet in 14th century Poland Middle Ages Europe the story followed three POVsThe first was a werewolf the plotSet in 14th century Poland Middle Ages Europe the story followed three POVsThe first was a werewolf a very young boy his whole village and family all werewolves were violently illed by werewolf hunters and with nothing else left he dedicated his life to revenge against humansThe second was a young man an initiate to an order of monks The order worked for the church tracking and Riverbend Road (Haven Point, killing demons werewolves They were the ones who murdered the werewolf boy s familyvillageThe third was a young woman with a secret BET YOU CAN T GUESS WHAT THAT SECRET ISI really enjoyed the plot The werewolf s reason forilling humans was completely believable and yet sad because he was fueling the whole werewolves are demons and so we re right to Claimed by the Wealthy Magnate kill them all thing The young woman s secret made complete sense All the characters behaved believably and realisticallyAnd I mentioned a love triangle which would usually be a bad sign for a book In this case it completely worked I actually liked it I spent most of the book trying to figure out how in the world it could resolve A young woman with a SECRET in love with both a werewolf and a werewolf hunterThe only downside to the book was how that love triangle and the book s whole ending was settled For some reason the werewolf went from a reasonable believable character to an OH HO HO YOU RE MINE SO NOW I SHALL RAPE YOU BECAUSE IT S MY RIGHT BECAUSE YOU RE MINE character He went from loving her and wanting to show her the world to OH YAY NOW I SHALL RAPE YOU Though I have to say this is the first time I ve ever read a wolfhuman woman attempted rape scene before Scanning Goodreads reviews they seem to agree with me that that ending made no sense and was generally dislikedAnyway ending aside I really really liked this book Some of the names were insane but mostly they wereept for minor characters Rycerz Telek Rydz herbu Bojcza Wojewoda Boleslaw The names included a character I ve never encountered before a lower case L with a slash though it Hm Google tells me it s a Polish character or The three main characters had normal names the werewolf was Darien the woman Maria and the young monk Josef so it was really perfect The main characters were easy to follow no distraction with wild names but all other characters having periodPolish names ept the feeling of the world realisticI was than hal.

Fway through the book when I discovered this was #actually the second book in the series That being said it 100% worked as a stand alone book Though #the second book in the series That being said it 100% worked as a stand alone book Though funny bit I read a part and said to myself That s a great plot hook I bet it s foreshadowing for the next book but it was actually something from the previous book When I read this I was expecting well not this I ept drifting in and out of this book and unable to hold my interest not even just tugging on it I skipped to the end halfway through and was unsurprised and unimpressed with the ending The writing wasn t the best and the main characters were are vanilla as you could get Good for putting yourself to sleep or wasting time and I do mean wasting Wolfbreed was an underrated gem a blend of historical fantasy and paranormal romance that
GAVE A STARK AND AUTHENTIC PORTRAYAL OF LIFE INa stark and authentic portrayal of life in middle ages and the dark side of human nature It s a tough act to follow so author SA Swann doesn t try Instead he takes the setting and crafts a different story with new characters and a completely different tone Results are good While Wolf s Cross does not pack the brutal impact of its predecessor it is just as good as a story and in its own way uite a bit deeperRead the full review at Lupines and Lunatics Great book until the ending i hated the ending First book was much much better The storyline seemed incomplete to have Darien die i would rather have seem Josef die or in the least Darien escape The story led me to like Darien I found myself relating to him and then it spat on his character as someone vile which made this book contradict itself thoroughly and made it confusing whether or not i should itself thoroughly and made it confusing whether or not i should of Darien as a bad guy or simply angry tormented soul who needed to find someone something he could hope and live for and his only hope ends up Once Upon a Time (Calluvias Royalty, killing him off That is an terrible ending for me I would have rather seen Darienill Maria in fact for her arrogance of her own Enamoured (The Enslaved Duet kinds way and her unwillingness to even attempt to understand Dariens troubles as the last of hisind This made me despise Maria as arrogant and selfish temptress h backstabbed her own ind I understood her loyalty was with her family but she didnt even attempt to help save Darien SO what do you expect to happen when you ignore someones feelings especially a werewolf the size of a truck First book was 10 times better than this for a powerful storyline and an excellent ending honestly the best book i have ever read Wolfbreed but this ending just ruined the whole book for me Book wasn t bad but just not as intriguing as I hoped for And I really hated one of the character.
