I did like the plot line of the story. You have a beauty (Alara) with a huge secret that could destroy the world and falls for a Beast (Lycaon). But what made me like the story more is that he stayed a beast and she still loved him. She loved him for his heart and not his looks.
The story had a lot of twist and turns but it fell flat at the end for me. It seemed to be rushed and the author wasn’t sure which way she was going to go with the story. I thought the book was going to end several times but it seemed to drag at the end. Do not get me wrong I loved the story but this is my only real critic about the book. There are some intimate scenes in the book that are ok, I felt that it didn’t need to be a part of the books, but hey to each there own.
Alara is a head strong girl who only wanted to return to her homeland and get away from her betrothed Aramon. While she runs back to her home, she runs into Lycaon and his band of warriors. Alara struggles with her feelings for Lycaon but as fates decide it they have a connection that keeps bringing them together. She makes some decisions that keep bringing her in danger but she never backs down.
Lycaon is a pain in the neck. You love him and you hate him. He makes some really really dump decisions that made me want to punch him in the face, but what can I say he is a man and I will leave it at that. The more I read the book, the more I began to love him as a character.
If you love Greek mythology and a twist on a Beauty and Beast then you will love this book. I laughed, cried and got angry at times with the book, but I will definitely be reading this book again.
• “I have never felt the kind of affection I feel for you with anyone. I have no desire to lose you,” he said softly. Still reeling from the pleasure that had engulfed her entire body, she responded in a ragged voice, “I have no desire to lose you either.”
• “No one really knows how our people were created, but it is believed we were created by the gods and that we carry both dragon and wolf blood in our veins. It is possible my clan carries more dragon blood than wolf blood. Your clan has the purest of wolf blood, which is why your blood is so powerful.”
• “He will never control what is inside of me.” She straightened her posture in defiance. He smiled faintly. “In a strange way, I admire your fiery spirit.” His expression turned somber. “But you cannot defeat him.” Anger burned inside her, a rising, unwavering flame. “Baloric, when someone tells me I cannot do something, I am more determined to do it.” “Spoken like a true princess of The Golden Wolf Clan,” he said with a wry grin. He strode away from her toward the waterfall.
Set during the Bronze Age, The Wolf Queen is a fantasy romance with a heavy dose of the paranormal. Ms Heckart cleverly weaves in a lot of background history throughout the tale.
Alara is a princess from a foreign land, soon to be wed to a sorcerer king. However, she realizes that her betrothed knows a big secret about her tribe that he plans to use for his evil purposes. So she flees to the one person who can help her, Lycaon. A former king, he’s cursed to roam the earth in his half human, half wolf form.
Alara has a kind heart and a strong will but she’s also a strong fighter. She knows herself. And she knows when to retreat and when to fight.
With every day she spent with Lycaon she learns more and more about him and about the secrets long hidden. This was a surprising book. Honestly I wasn’t sure I’d like it this much, let alone finish it in one sitting.
Though this is the second book in the series and even though I haven’t read the first book in the series, I can safely say that it can be read as a stand alone. The plot was very good. Detailed. But not so much so as to be too much. It was descriptive and deep.
The characters, good and bad, were well developed. I could almost see them in my mind’s eye every time.
Alara and Lycaon had passion and a lot of it. Their relationship was not easy but their love was strong. I know it’s a little corny saying that but it’s the only way I could describe it without revealing too much.
A read any paranormal reader could love and one I highly recommend.

This was an amazing story full of twist and turns. Kelley Heckart is an incredible author and I found myself lost in the story from the start. Alara was a feisty and proud woman who bowed to no one, and Lycaon was a fierce and noble person hell bent to protect her at any cost. I fell in love with the characters and the story right away. Heckart writes with an artistic beauty and grace that captures the imagination and grabs the soul.
I love all stories about battles and stories about gods and goddesses. This book has it all! the sorcerer-king Aramon was a great and fierce enemy and I couldn't ask for a better villain! He never gave up and he never gave quarter. He was ruthless and deadly and had no remorse. He was the perfect villain. Lycaon was much like him but in the Hero aspect, He grieved deeply for his men each time they were lost and went after Aramon all the more ruthlessly. He loved Alara so much that the thought of her in pain pained him so much that he ripped men to pieces. Both were deadly one cared too much the other not enough.
Heckart did a smashing job on this and the love story within holds you and wouldn't let go. It is passionate and deep and sinks its claws in and marks you for its own. I love shifter stories and this one is one of the most interesting one I have read to date, there is magic , intrigue, mystery, and a whole lot of chance.
