I have to say I am absolutely in love with this series. Amy Lee Burgess is a fantastic author. Her writing is great, she writes a female lead character that has gone through some horrible situations and you end up just wanting the best for her, I just loved her.
This is the first book in the series, and I read it in one afternoon, to be honest I read all 4 of her books in one weekend I couldn't stop reading them. I even emailed Amy to find out when the next book is coming out. OMG I have to wait till April I think she said LOL.
So this novel starts off with us meeting Constance Newcastle aka Stenzie, she seems to always find trouble or get into trouble. She has lost her bond mates in an accident and now she is a ceremony looking for a new bond mate. Meeting up with an old friend she thinks things are going to go her way and she won't end up being alone.
Well that is until he dies! Next thing you know Constance Newcastle is in trouble again and being accused of maybe causing his death.
To save or should I say help her in walks Liam Murphy, a man who doesn't want to bond or be in love, but Constance and Liam end up no choice but to bond.
Their relationship is a bit different and they end up becoming friends and of course a bit more. You just have to read to find out the rest.
Amy Lee Burgess has a total different spin on the wolves in this series and I loved it.
So if you like werewolves, and a great female lead character and some hot and sexy male werewolf's you should add all Amy's books to your list to read. I would recommend this series to all my friends and followers.
The writing is weak at times but strong overall. The scenes are vivid, and the characters come alive. The suspense is palpable, and the plot twists are expertly done. Though there is language and a couple tastefully done scenes of sex, the content warning is solely to warn parents.
The narrator and heroine of this first-person novel is, of course, the main reason to read this book. Feisty, complex and undeniably lovable. I highly recommend discovering her for yourself.
Having been given book three in the series for review and loved it I had to buy books one and two. This review is as always independent of whether I've bought it or received for free. Integrity is important to me, and the views I've given are personal and honestly held.
First in a paranormal romance series about shifter wolves. Its an excellent introduction introducing Stanzie who lost her bond mates in a terrible car accident two years earlier. She was blamed by her pack mates, even though she was cleared by the Council as they believe she was drunk and they chose to ban her from their pack. Two years have passed and Stanzie can apply to rejoin another pack if she finds a new bond mate. She is at a Regional gathering in France for this purpose when she's reunited with an old lover. Everything is going well and she feels promise for a new future when tragedy strikes her again and she is accused of his murder. She joins forces to clear her name with Liam Murphy, a former Alpha who also has a complicated past. Guided by Councillor Allerton they investigate several other accidents as he wants some discreet enquiries made to see if there is more to these than meets the eye.
Stanzie is a lovely character who has been caught up in events through no fault of her own. Liam is a typical alpha needing to help someone who he can see will be blamed for an event for which she is clearly innocent. The book centres on both the events and the characters. Stanzie and Liam are both working on how to get along, Stanzie has been abandoned by both her pack and her family and is struggling to understand Liam. He's a fantastic man - trying hard to help her and yet victim of his own sad story. Initially they don't appear to get in and yet are thrown together by events (and the manoeuvrings of Councillor Allerton ) and gradually become closer.
The characters are so well described that even though I've now read this book three times and know what is coming I'm still moved to tears for poor Stanzie, and understand Liam's withdrawals when he's feeling angry over events he's trying to put behind him. Stanzie has a controlling bully of a father, difficulties from her former Alpha who disliked her and then lost the two people who were her loves. Her wolf is very childlike and known and laughed at throughout the Pack and she struggles with confidence because of her troubled past. Despite this she's very intuitive and intelligent and thus Councillor Allerton see her and Liam as being a good team to help him in his investigations. The book is centred around the people and how the events interact with them - that's my favourite style of writing. Its written from the viewpoint of Stanzie and again that's something that always makes books more real to me - I feel as if I'm actually in the novel and get lost in another world. The plots centre around the tragedies but also flashback to past ones to give a fuller picture. Its a very easy to follow story, well written and edited and going to become one of my favourite re read series. There's something new to find on each subsequent reading and the story remains fresh even though I know what's going to happen.
It does have some sex scenes although not graphic and they are integral to the story. It also has some swearing and again it fits within the characters feelings at the time. Its 175 pages for £3.67 as an e reader and to me real value for money being one I'll keep to re read. Its not currently available as a print version.
Stars - Five stars, its a gripping story that I can't fault and real value for money.
