Werewolves just the way I like them: raw, ruthless and made even more beautiful with age. Brand is a five hundred year old werewolf who doesn't want to follow in his father's barbaric steps and rule over the broods. Because there is only one way to keep control of them, and he doesn't want to submit to the savage wolf in him to do it.
But he can only avoid his birthright so long. When Alice and Dagny are put in danger by the other broods who don't mind filling Brand's shoes, he finds himself trying to get to the bottom of the threats around them. Doing such while avoiding his unwanted title only makes things more complicated--and often painful.
Brand is by far my new favorite tortured hero. His character takes you right to the edge till you're holding your breath, unsure of what he might do next. My second favorite character was Alice, as her feelings of friendship for Brand run so deep, and despite being considered weaker, she's the last one you want to make snap. All of the characters in here are exceptionally real and have something about them to love, or in the case of their adversaries, seriously hate.
Definitely recommended for paranormal romance fans who are tired of the soft and gentle versions.
This one did and then some!
Brand can be the King of the broods...if only he can step forward and take the crown. His sire, the previous king, was a viscous bastard of the worst degree. When Brand finally broke free of his father and killed him, he walked away from the throne, vowing never to take the position. Now, centuries later, he finally realizes that by turning his back on the throne, he turned his back on his people. Can he fix the clans, who are stuck in the past and treating women and weak members as slaves, or will he die trying?
I truly loved this book. The writing pulled me in from the very start. There's just something about Coral Moore's writing--it flows very easily, and makes the reader wish to continue. I'm definitely adding her books to my list in the future!
Brand's tale does have a bit of romance to it, but it doesn't take center stage all the time, and I was okay with that. I loved his possessiveness, not just to Dagny, but everyone under his protection. He could have easily been like his father, drunk on power but with no honor. Instead he became very much the perfect hero.
4 STARS! For a captivating shifter tale, one that pulls from old Norse tales a bit, Broods of Fenrir is sure to be a hit with fans of the genre!Read more ›
Brand Geirson is a werewolf. And for his "day job" he is a security guard. He has basically severed many ties with the packs, which in this book are broods. He has a few close friends, and that's about it. He's a loner. And, by all rights, he should be king. Yep, king.
So this story starts with Brand being called to a homicide scene. The woman has clearly been bitten by a werewolf. This starts the series of events that lead to a completely powerful and beautiful story.
Power. It's a strange thing. If anyone knows me, they know I like to read about werewolves. They are nearly my favorite, and some days they are absolutely my favorite. I like to read about the ever present alpha male. ahem, Alpha Male. I think the Alpha Male is such an interesting character. He's the strongest, the smartest, most cunning, most loving, most ...everything male. Well, in Coral Moore's Broods of Fenrir, Brand is that Alpha Male. And then multiply that by a thousand. Heck, he should be king, if he'd just decide he actually wants to be. Everyone else already thinks of him in that capacity. So this story isn't just about a murder mystery, or a werewolf brood, or Brand becoming king. It is about this character, this man, this wolf, coming to terms with who he is, where he is, and growing about a million percent as a soul within a few hundred pages. Daunting, I know. But it is totally accomplished in this book.
Am I gushing? Yeah, a little bit. Ok, let's talk about power. No, not power. POWER. Cause that is what got me so excited in this book. The sheer force of power this man has. I can't even describe it.Read more ›
Brandulf Gierson was raised by a bastard of a father, one who beat the females and males around him into submission in order to assert dominance and authority. His ruled with an iron fist until Brand killed him with his sire's own sword...and then walked away from his destiny: to be King of the Broods of Fenrir, for the wolf who kills the King becomes the King. Except Brand doesn't want to be King; in fact, he doesn't want anything but to bow out of the broods and be left alone.
Brand manages to avoid brood society for hundreds of years by closing himself off from them, but he can avoid their brutal politics no longer when two women he cares for are threatened and another innocent woman is attacked. At the risk of becoming like his father, he either must become King or let the broods fall even further into chaos, and that's a chance even he may not be willing to take.
Broods of Fenrir is a very in-your-face, somewhat violent shifter novel. It reminds me a little of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, but instead of vhampires, we have werewolves. And these werewolves aren't Jacob, folks, oh no. These werewolves are dominate, big, beastly men who will rip your head right off at just a slight provocation. They have a pecking order and you best follow it. Broods of Fenrir is a heated novel, both emotionally and sexually. Speaking of sex, there is some, but it isn't over the top or really dirty. It was just enough to fit in with the flow of the story.
There are three separate plot lines in Broods of Fenrir: 1) a rogue werewolf is murdering innocent victims, 2) Ingrid's intention to force Brand to into his destiny as King, and 3) werewolves are being killed off or mysteriously disappearing.Read more ›
