An eARC of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

If like me you have a taste for the kind of urban fantasy that has a romance bent to it but is largely fluffy and entertaining, this book is a great choice. I liked the way that the romance began, although it was an instant connection it was one that fitted the characters involved. I found that the romance was quite heavy handed in how it continued – way deeper and more committed and permanent seeming than really makes sense for the age of the characters, particularly considering what Katalina was going through.

I enjoyed this story but was uncomfortable with how Katalina’s adoptive parents were essentially fridged to make way for the story – I think there are plenty of ways the story could have happened that didn’t involve fridging the inconvenient set of parents to give Katalina motivation for her story. That said, I thought the way the story handled Katalina’s grief, the importance of her parents to her and how her extended adoptive family treated her was well done. I appreciated the way that her birth family handled her reintroduction to them badly – several times, but that Katalina never let them get away with the bad behaviour and called them on it. I like that she won’t be told how her life is going to be and who it’s going to be with. This book is a nice contrast to some of the other YA romance books I’ve read of late in that it had good examples of boundary setting, healthy relationships – both romantic and non-romantic. It’s not problem-free, but it was a damn sight better than what I’ve come across and I appreciated that a lot.

I am not a fan of romantic urban fantasy. This, however, is one of the better examples of the genre. The characters are mostly flat, and often indistinguishable from one another. The plot is very thin. The novel is clearly structured along the standard three-act play format that is preached in all the latest high output writing courses which emphasize quantity over quality. While this system works very well for television and movies, it does create highly predictable novels.

Altogether not a bad book. But far from great. Winter Wolf is a competently told story with reasonable technical proficiency. That this has become the standard in today's literary world making it worthy of an average rating is both a blessing and a curse.

I really love werewolves and I’m always looking for some books about them.
After reading “Winter Wolf” I strongly recommend it to all werewolves’ lovers.
The author calls them shifters because they can change whenever they want, not only with full moon.
This book seems to me a sort of “Romeo and Juliet” in werewolves version.
There are two packs: Run River and and Dark Shadow.
They are enemies from so many time, they don’t remember which pack started the war.
There are two Alphas that have lost their wives cause of the war. The Run River’s Alpha gave up his daughter, Katalina Winter, to a human family when she is a newborn to keep her safe. The Dark Shadow’s Alpha instead grew his son, Sebastian Evernight, with hatred and violence to kill her.
What happen if Kat and Sebastian are soulmates?
What happen if Kat seems to feel herself foreign both the human and werewolves’ world?
Katalina is a strong girl, even if she has just lost her human parents. She is brave, loyal and really mature for a 18-years old.
On the other hand, Bass (aka Sebastian) is strong and a very expert fighter but he isn’t unbreakable. Despite this he defends his mate without fear cause he loves her in a way I really envy.
I like the werewolves’ world the author created. Shifters live far from human’s world, so they think and act in a very different way. Besides Shifter is a very divided society, there are the pureblood and the others. Some pack like Run River are advanced, some, like Dark Shadow, are like barbarians.
Katalina is a shifter, a pureblood, but she’s also a girl who lived for her first eighteens with humans, so she brings a breath of fresh air in a world too close and fixed on ancient rules.
I think this is an amazing story and I hope to read more by Rachel M. Raithby.

This was the most refreshing book I have ever read. I normally read mystery novels, so switching to this was a giant leap. I am glad I read this book and cannot wait to read the next book in this series.

This book was incredibly juvenile. The female lead, Kat, drove me crazy with her constant temper tantrums (The yelling at her grandma?? Not cool) and selfishness. I get it, some major crazy changes have happened, but it's hard to connect with a character who handles it so poorly. Yelling at people when she doesn't agree with their opinions, doesn't make a girl a strong bad-a** leader; it makes her annoying and petulant. Certain things weren't explained, and others made no sense at all. Example... How exactly did her dad flip a car while he was going slow enough to turn in their driveway?? Skidding on ice going 5-10 miles per hour isn't going to flip a car and catch it on fire. The writing just wasn't polished. Their were too many things that were constantly brought up that just felt awkward, when I'm pretty sure they were meant to describe why Kat felt the way she did. As the reader, I don't need to be told, repeatedly, that Kat grew up in the "real world", and that's why she isn't okay with people being killed on a regular basis. Anyone reading this type of book should be old enough to make the connection on their own about why she feels the way she does. Would I recommend? Unfortunately, no. The writing just wasn't very good, the fight scenes lame, the love story not that great, and the whole plot under-developed.
