The eighth book of this series takes a different direction to the rest, taking us back through history before the merging of the Romanian packs, to a time when Vasile had yet to find his mate. Alina takes advantage of the ALL girls vacation to tell her story in the hopes to share wisdom and give them the insight and strength they will need being mated to such dominant males.
Alina begins the story when she was merely 16 years old and the pack Alphas of the time had ‘moved on’ to their next life. These Alphas were none other than Vasile’s parents. Alina reflects on their first meeting and the first time he used their bond to talk with her, and how her father thought it best she wait till she was of age before completing the mate bond. Alina tells the girls of Vasile’s exile and how he regained what was his. Even the Fae Perizada popped up a few times giving us the sense she much older than anyone could fathom!
Although I thoroughly enjoyed this story I felt there was much less of the usual atmosphere that usually created in these novels. It’s really goes to show that the the three American girls really make the story unique. What sarcasm and humour was added would have been difficult to add in due to the scene set for the storyline. However the story of Vasile and Alina was fantastic even without the sarcastic extras.
Despite this novel not being the favourite of this series I still give it a ranking of 7/10 stars and recommend this book to young to mid teens.
What an emotional roller coaster. The sixth book, Sacrifice of Love, by Quinn Loftis, has bee the best book yet. It has everything, love, turmoil, action, life and death. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and was surprised by the twists and turns presented.
As usual the girls find themselves kidnapped yet again, this time at the hands of a crazy warlock who is in fact Lilly’s mates brother. Their mate bonds are severed and they are left alone and defenceless in a place created by the Fae. Their mates are frantic with worry and anger as they attempt to find the girls, but with no bond it proves a difficult task. Thankfully the supernatural world lends their helping hands and gives the wolves the magical boost they need to get through their toughest battle yet.
WARNING SPOILER ALERT:
My favourite part of this book has to be when Jen finally gives birth to their daughter. Finding that the doc has given herself to the fates in place of their daughter is an amazing story. Especially the fact it is a complete surprise that it is her that makes the sacrifice and not the White wolf that has mysteriously found his way into the path of the pack, which is what I first thought. It ties her part in the series nicely without killing her off without meaning or purpose other than merely ending her or letting her wander aimlessly throughout the future novels.
The main storyline really captured my imagination. I could almost feel the characters with all the modern lingo and references. The way the wolves incorporate this into the usually more formal lives is quite interesting and the humour is fantastic because of it.
Overall I found this novel brilliant in the case of the storyline and am interested to see what follows in the next novel. This book and series is recommended for young to mid teens. I give the rating of 7.5/10 stars for this book.
The sixth instalment of the Grey Wolf series gives us all the answers to our unanswered questions from the last book as well as opens up more by the end. Quinn Loftis has woven supernatural disaster beautifully, and has not disappointed readers, giving them a battle to remember
Jacque, Jen and Sally, as always, are in the thick of the drama, and after rescuing their mates fall victim to a spell of revenge dished out by their enemy Desdemona. The males, although no longer suffering the torment of the in-between, still suffer from what they have seen, and it’s affecting the bond with their mates. So much so the she-wolves take drastic measures that causes all kinds of issues when Desdemona’s spell strikes.
Meanwhile Lilly and Cypher manage to wrangle assistance for the battle with the witch from an unlikely source, the elves. The Fae too become involved, after being chastised by the great Goddess Luna herself, use the moonstone presented to them to call all of the packs together for war.
The battle itself is ferocious and devastating and both sides are injured. But when the battle is over the right side find themselves still standing, only to come face to face with an even greater threat being Cypher’s own brother. This could lead to all kinds of trouble in future novels.
Overall Fate and Fury is a impressive book that keeps readers hooked with all the action and adventure. Again this book is recommended for early to mid teens. This book receives a rating of 7/10 stars.
