"Huntress Born" is the third book I've ready by Ms. Easterling. I started with "Verdant Magic: A Dragon Mage Novel" of the Dragon Mage Chronicles---which I absolutely loved. I was excited to start new series and meet new characters. Once I started I realized "Huntress Born" was a spin-off of another series, Wolf Rampant (3 Book Series); I was thrilled to find it was written so that I didn't feel lost at all. I do plan on reading the original series, but I didn’t want to have to stop to read it before this book.
As with "Verdant Magic" enjoyed Ms. Easterling's writing style and the fact that I ran across words I needed to look up as I wasn't quite sure of their meaning or they were totally new. I love stuff like that and yes, I'm weird. Some of the words were: chivying, ungulates, adroitly, bruja, perspicacious, lassitude, and dint.
Something else that I enjoyed about this book was that the love interests were not wham-bam and they were in bed. Yes, the insta-affection was there, but it didn't result in an immediate sex-fest like that happens in many shifter books. I've nothing against a good romp, but sometimes I like the characters to introduce themselves first 😊
I really enjoyed the characters especially little Rosie. Her antics made me giggle. The grandmother was hilarious and I loved her moxie. She was a take-no-prisoners gal. Ember was a likeable heroine. She was smart, but not so smart that she didn’t make mistakes. I loved her fierce devotion to family. Sebastian was a little harder to read. I didn’t feel we really got to see his personality so I can’t say how I feel about him being Ember’s love interest. Ember’s parents, Terra and Wolfie, were very interesting and I’m going to need to get busy reading their story.
What stopped “Huntress Born” from being a 5-star read? The ending ☹ My immediate feeling was WTHeck??? It felt unfinished. Yes, the issue with Alpha Greenbriar was resolved, but it felt incomplete still. I don’t know. I guess it was just too abrupt of an end for me. The good news is that the second book in the series was published at the same time this was so I don’t have to wait. I already own “Huntress Bound (Wolf Legacy Book 2)” so I can pick up where this one left off.
Full Disclosure: I was gifted an Advance Review Copy which allowed me to start reading the book before it was published. I purchased a copy to further support the author.

I found Ember a charming heroine. I loved how she tried to solve so many of her problems with baked goods and was always guessing at what someone's favorite dessert would be. I liked Sebastien too, though I feel like we haven't really gotten a chance to know him very well yet. My main complaint with this book is that besides our main character, I felt like I didn't get to know or understand the other characters as well as I would have liked, so their actions didn't always make sense.
This was a relatively quick read that effortlessly captured and held my interest. The pacing was good and the plot was exciting. However, while I really enjoyed this book, it wasn't always an easy read. There are a couple of scenes featuring sexual assault, and while the text is never too graphic, it could be triggering for some readers. The story also ended much more abruptly than I was expecting, so keep that in mind if you dislike cliffhanger endings. Fortunately, Huntress Bound (Wolf Legacy Book 2) is already available.
I volunteered to review an advanced reader copy of this book. The version I read was neatly formatted, had no significant editing problems, and was free of typos. If you like urban fantasy, give this a try.
No surprise that I hugely enjoyed, and highly recommend, this book. My only complaint is that while the story arc was completed (no cliffhanger) in now left drooling for book 2. Is best go get it.
Ember, all grown up in human year's, yet still a Wolf pup, in her parents & pack eye's, has left home for the first time to find her younger brother, whom she'd only learned about a year earlier.
And now the fun begins, crazy Alpha Werewolf, sexy hot human professor, superstitious granny & yummy baked goods.
Well worth the read, will definitely be reading the next book in this series.
I really liked the character of Ember. She is tough and willing to take risks for those she loves. She is very protective of others. Her desire to find her missing brother sets her on a very interesting path.
