Heart of the Wolf by Terry Spear

Summary: Bella is a red werewolf, sole survivor of the fire that killed her entire pack.

Devlyn is a beta male werewolf in a pack of grays.

Forced to flee her adopted gray pack when the alpha male becomes a vicious threat, she struggles to live as a lone wolf, until Devlyn, the gray male who rescued her as a pup, comes to bring her home.

When a local red werewolf goes on a killing spree, Bella and Devlyn must flee the murderer, the police and their vengeful pack leader. With the full moon rising, and her heat upon her, Bella can't resist the pull to her destined mate, even if means Devlyn will have to face the wicked alpha male in a fight to the death...

A sizzling paranormal romance based on extensive research on how wolves live and behave in the wild, creating a fascinating world of nature and fantasy.


Review:
I enjoyed this story very much. I thought it was a great romance novel and I thought Bella and Dev were both wonderful characters. I enjoyed reading them together because they were so obviously in love and I thought their relationship was really sweet. Bella is quite the tease which was cute to read, and Dev is so strong and so brave I fell in love with him so fast. I added Terry's books to my TBR list and they are pretty high up. I would recommend this book to any wolf lover.

Styx's Storm and Lion's Heat by Lora Leigh

Summary: Styx's Storm is a standalone novel that sustains the pulse of this erotic epic. In the novel, Wolf Breed Styx has saved the virginal young Storme Montague from the grasp of slave traders, but to fulfill a pledge, he must seduce her by sunrise. This pleasurable saga of carnal craving continues.

Bad boy Jonas Wyatt knows it is fate that Rachel becomes his mate. He can sense it. He can also sense her reluctance. But she has little power over the mating heat of the Breeds. It is Jonas's destiny to claim her. And nothing will stop him from having his way.


Review: Overall, very good. I didn't really like Styx. He seemed to be an asshole. And I wasn't really digging the fact that he had a Scottish accent mostly because I couldn't really his voice right in my head. I thought Storme was a great character. The story was done well, but I thought these books were about shifters. I got a bit confused about that. Still this is definitely worth checking out.

My feelings towards Lion's Heat was much like those towards Styx's Storm. I thought Rachel was a great character and I enjoyed reading her. It took a bit of time for me to warm up to Jonas. I enjoyed the story in Styx's Storm more than this story, but both were very good.

I give both books 4 howls.

Tomorrow my blog is 1 year old!

I was freaking out because I neglected my blog and I realized it was already January and I thought I missed my blog's birthday. I realized it is actually tomorrow, and I'm not posting this tomorrow because I won't be able to get to a computer. Unfortunately I don't have a massive post or giveaway to do, but I want to thank you all for following my blog even though it's been forgotten recently. I might get a review up today. I'm hoping. Have a good day all. :)

Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton

Summary: When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers - monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell - she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between archangels and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul. A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her - an assassin who has already killed her once. While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives - including truths that may be too frightening to remember.

Review: I managed to win an ARC of this from a contest and I was absolutely excited because this book has been buzzing around blogs like crazy. I think it is well worth the wait as it is a quick read with a good story. As far as characters go I really liked all of them (even some of the minor characters), and I related to Ellie alot. I am very familiar with disappointing parents and getting yelled at by them so I was very sympathetic towards that. Will seems to be a very sweet character and I can't wait to see their relationship grow.
As for the story I was honestly a bit concerned when I sarted reading. It sounded a lot like Bleach if you've ever read/seen that. Girl is a normal human girl when she is suddenly attacked by monsters from death who come to the mortal world to eat souls. While that sounds similar the story itself is much different as it also incorporates Satan and God into it. You learn a lot about Ellie and Will thoughout this story and I most certainly recommend getting it if you want to read a good, quick paranormal YA book.

I have NOT been neglecting my blog. Okay maybe a little bit. *shame*

Yeah I've been out of school for about a month now and I haven't done any new posts. I feel awful about that. I've been reading pretty much nonstop though so I should have tons of reviews to put up. To lessen the load I'll be doing a lot of posts together. I'll do a massive review of The Hunger Games Trilogy, Blood Promise-The Last Sacrifice, Pride-Alpha, etc.

I still won't be able to post for a few more days because my computer is messed up, but it will *hopefully* be fixed soon.

I hope everyone has a swell new year. My 2011 isn't starting off all that well, but I'm hoping it will get better.

Thanks for sticking with me and I hope to have some new reviews up soon.
