I didn't even enjoy the world building. Not bad but not a keeper. She could almost see the swagger of the wolf as man and beast melded to work as one. But she is still a virgin who has no idea that she is a half breed of a supernatural species, that is being hunted by an organized group of suped up humans, and she has fallen in love with the King of said species who has awakened her sexual desires in ways she could never have imagined. The main suspect being Bill, the medium who was Paula, the murdered female's boss and friend. I only get paid in hugs and kisses from my little boys. But with his Brother Wolf raging inside him, howling to be unleashed, he needs to satisfy his hungers.
So when I saw that she will be releasing a new paranormal series, I was all over it. Also I didnt read dire needs first, so had no expectations. Although, it soon becomes known that Gwen is not just your average human and it drives them to demand her death while Rifter argues for her life because he has worked out that she is his true mate. They are predators of pleasure and pain. I had to keep flipping pages back, but more often then not I was still confused. . Other things happen to in the Dire household to add to the turmoil there and keep the Dires busy.
Mary Preston 10:06pm March 5, 2012 I do like some stand-alones as well but they don't always give you as much story and plot as well as character development as you tend to get when you read a series of books. He is able to see Paula's ghost but she isnt speaking to him. I don't expect a series to have resolutions for every obstacle. Книга, которая не выглядит новой, была в употреблении, но находится в отличном состоянии. The second book in the series, Dire Wants, is planned for a winter 2012 release and the third book, Dire Desires, is set to release in spring 2013.
Rifter leads the pack, embracing the lifestyle and ethics of an outlaw biker even as he battles an ancient enemy who has become a new, powerful force. So this book is packed! At one point she's human and another she was a wolf and part of the pack. This will be one series I can see myself loving to hate. I was nervous because I had just finished another shifter series and was afraid I would have a hard time wrapping my mind around this one. I really liked Marley and hope she is featured in the main stories. It was okay - no great shakes, but I suppose it was a nice enough introduction to the cast, the landscape, and the overall vibe of the story.
By that I mean I was constantly skimming through the material to get to something worth reading. I'm slightly curious about what happens to the other characters but doubt I'll make any effort to get the next books. I know that you are not really surprised by this because it is, after all, the first book in a new series. I liked the fact we got this prequel because it takes care of explaning the world of the Weres and the Dire Wolves. I fell under the Dire's spell almost immediately and am oh so very excited to get to the full length novel.
They are predators of pleasure and pain. And I do love stand alone books too. The overkill of history was confusing, frustrating and at that point my brain was already on massive overload resulting in no desire to finish. They have a king Rifter , a guy called Vice with many vices Vishous? The alpha Dire wolves are the last six alive after the Extinction and they are all men. Because of the repetition things I normally overlook I couldn't.
There was a lot of information in the book that I thought at times was not needed. A look into the dire world. And not a lot happened. It took a bit for me to understand the rules of this world but it was definitely a fast paced and easy to follow read. The approach to telling this story is completely different than in any of her other books. The Dire Wolves are special wolves that were created and are governed by a council that makes major life decisions for the Wolves. Dire wolves were created by Norse Gods and are to protect humans and police the weres.
. Annetta Stolpmann 8:04pm March 5, 2012 I enjoy both series and stand alones, but find it hard to wait. How long had it been for her? The Eternal Wolf Clan series focuses on a pack of Dire wolves, werewolves who are immortal, extra badass and who are sworn to protect humans from crazed weres. Rose Germano 9:40am March 5, 2012 I love reading series for the same reason. Biker wolves, witches and ghosts. Mary Chin 8:57pm March 5, 2012 I like both types of reading, but I really get investing in a series and I love them.
Now onto my complaint, yes I have one. Rifter leads the pack, and his primal instincts have led him to claim Gwen, a woman seeking solace from the chronic pain that has wracked her body her entire life. This is a novella about a murdered human female. I liked the world building as it had something fresh and new and was extremely well put together. I really liked the mythology of how the Dire Wolves were created. The three this story focuses on is Rifter, Vice and Jinx.
