To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book had a great premise and I really wanted to like it. The book seemed disjointed and did flow easily. I might try to start the book again. If I fight to read the first part of the book again it will wind up in my delete pile.
Saw this as a recommendation on Amazon and it had gotten good reviews so I ordered the book, expecting to at least like it somewhat.
But I didn't like it at all. Quite disappointing and I definitely would not recommend this book to anybody who enjoys romances.
The author appears to want the create a compelling, angst ridden, edgy environment for her story. Her technique is to throw the reader into a whirlwind of hyper-drama with pain filled characters and tons of old, bad blood and scores to settle. Every now and again she remembers there is supposed to be a romance thrown in. It's so pathetically done. There is zero chemistry between the couple and then, suddenly, Rifter decides Gwen is "his". It was completely unbelievable and nothing that had happened between the characters gave me any feeling of actual connection between Rifter and Gwen. I only read about half the book before I decided I didn't want to waste any more of my time on this book or this author.
Read Kresley Cole, Thea Harrison or Larrisa Ione for much better paranormal romance and save your money by avoiding this book.
I have liked all of Ms Tyler's books and I like wolf themed paranormal books so I pre ordered this book.I'm having real trouble finishing it.I even read the last chapter last night to see if the ending was worth me trying to finish it and.......... There is just too much going on in this book. My head is spinning. I don't really like any of the Dire wolf characters except maybe Rogue and he is in a coma.I guess the author is trying to have a wolf version of the JR Wards the Black Dagger Brotherhood but I'm kinda tired of that series so maybe I've let it color my view of this one
I'm guessing Stephanie Tyler is a big fan(as am I) of J.R. Ward and her Black Dagger Brotherhood Series, because the Dire Wolve novels are so similar, just wolves not vampires. I wish I could say I enjoyed the Dire Wolves even half as much as the Black Dagger Brotherhood, but I don't want to lie. I thought I'd found an exciting new series to read, but sadly, not so. Everything from the characters names, to general story plot are such a rip-off, that I had to force myself to finish reading the book. If you've never read J.R. Ward I think you might be able to enjoy the Dire Wolves novels, but I can only say I won't be purchasing any other books in this series.
