What drew me into this book is the way that one becomes a werewolf in this book's world. I have never read this take on the myth before. It's quite original and I'd encourage other authors to do similar things. Instead of the tired old thing where you have to get bitten by a werewolf and have no choice but to become one, I like this story's idea that you have to choose and commit to the thing.
The ceremony scene to become a wolf was quite amazing. You should read the sample book just for that scene, it's worth your time.
The rest of the book, on the other hand, may not be worth your time or your money. There are a lot of issues that you may have with this book.
My issues were with the fact that IT DOES NOT END. This book just stops. It builds and builds. It teases you like it's going somewhere then all of a sudden puts a "to be continued" at the end of it.
I understand that this is a series, but you should at least put some emotional closure at the end of it. Harry Potter is a series, but each book ends by resolving issues that it started with. Yes, it also left some questions unanswered in each volume, but at least it resolved enough story points to give it's audience some closure. Lord of the Rings does the same thing. Yet at the end of each book you feel like you have enough information about the characters and their situation to make a conclusion to the overarching story. But you continue to buy the succeeding books to find out what actually happened.
You don't get much of anything at the end of this book except the need to buy book 2. It's the only way to get closure.Read more ›
I understand that other people like it and whatever. But this is my personal opinion and I like my books with a beginning, middle, and end.
I absolutely loved this book, the emotional connection you get really got to me, you can feel Jonathan's desperation like it was your own, in your bones, and made me cry. This story hooked me in and never let me go. Charlotte is truly a gifted writer, and I will be reading more of her work.
I was able to get into the book pretty quick; it didn't take me too long to figure it all out, like how River's world is so different from ours. I did get that cult type feel of it like Jonathan did, but not as much, as I know they are a tribe of shap-shifters, and need to keep that part of their life secret. I enjoyed learning how primitive they lived, but yet with some genius creations too, like Reuben's farm, the way he made the pipes (he is a blacksmith) run under the whole cabin and barn, to carry the thermal water from the hot springs, to warm the house and barn, and how it has been designed to be changed in the summer, to bring the mountain cold water instead to help keep the place cool. The log cabin is build into the side of the mountain, and sounds so pretty, like a lodge at the ski resorts.
This book takes place in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, which is where I grew up, so really enjoyed that part, as so much of the descriptions I could easily picture as I could relate. I think of them old mining towns nestled into the mountains.
I really loved River and Jonathan. River is a strong and courageous girl. I really could connect with her. She is a bit naive, but that is to be expected with the way she was raised.Read more ›
This particular story is about a place that nobody is aware that exsists deep in the Sawatch Mountain. There is a community of shifters who live there and are quite primitive in their ways and behaviours. River is coming to an age where she will be expected to mate with one of her kind because her "merge fever" is fast approaching. She is not happy to discover who is being picked for her and she ventures off. She comes across a young man in trouble and ends up saving his life. Jonathan has escaped his life of tragedy and sorrow to go on an expidition. Not only has he lost his hand in the war but also his twin brother. Things at home just haven't been the same since his brother was killed and Jonathan has so many feelings he just can't seem to cope with. When he lands himself in hot water and has this intriguing girl save him, he immediately feels some spark of life return to him. River takes Jonathan on as her "recruit" as this is the only acceptable way to keep him around without losing him. This begins a journey of introducing a young man who is used to the current way of the world learning how to cope with this new life which is so primitive and beyond anything he has ever experienced before.

A well written and complex shifter story that keeps the pages turning. This is definitely a shifter society that is not a cookie cutter copy of so many others that I've read.Published 2 days ago by Kendrick Knight
