Broods of Fenrir Paperback – November 20, 2011
About the Author
Coral Moore has always been the kind of girl who makes up stories. Fortunately, she never quite grew out of that. She writes because she loves to invent characters and the desire to find out what happens to her creations drives the tales she tells. Prompted by a general interest in how life works, her undergraduate schooling was in biology. She follows science news and enjoys conversations about genetics and microbiology as much as those about vampires and werewolves. Coral writes speculative fiction and is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Writing at Albertus Magnus College. Currently she lives in Connecticut with the love of her life, who offers both encouragement and kicks in the tail when necessary. Also in residence are two mammals of the families Canidae and Felidae.

Broods of Fenrir is a fast paced horror-thriller with strong characters and lots of werewolf on werewolf violence to keep the story moving along. I greatly enjoyed it from start to finish.
I do have a few critiques of this story, minor though they are. There are a few points in the tale where characters are introduced rapid fire, leading to a feeling of "Huh? Who's that and where did they come from?" My second critique is that this story is fairly short. The werewolves in this tale are immortal (or practically immortal) and there's a lot of history hinted at in the book. As a fan of the original Highlander, let me just say I love flashbacks. I would have liked to have seen a few more glimpses into their back story. On the other hand, the author definitely leaves herself with plenty of material for future books if such is her plan.
As a minor side note, I will just say that Broods of Fenrir is beautifully edited. Over the past couple of years, I've come to expect books (even professionally published) to have a few typos or formatting errors here and there. I don't think I spotted a single thing in this book. This doesn't' have anything to do with the story, but kudos to the author and her team for putting that little bit of extra polish into this.
All the werewolf angst you could possibly crave, wrapped in a grim, gritty adult setting.
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! I will be recommending it to others, and I am anxious to read book two ,as I'm hoping many of the secondary characters pop up again, or better yet get their own tale!

This is book 1 of Broods of Fenrir. I will read just about anything with paranormal aspects in it and I really did enjoy this book which was a quick read. I especially liked the Norse references and feel to some of the characters. I would have to say that Alice took 1st place as my favorite character. She was vulnerable and weak at times but proved herself to be a fierce champion. I look forward to reading more in this series. I received this ebook free through LibraryThing Member Giveaways in exchange for an honest review.
