The Wolf (The Sons of Destiny, Book 2) Mass Market Paperback – April 1, 2008
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
Johnson continues the Son of Destiny series that began with The Sword (2007). Alys, her uncle's prisoner, uses her shape-shifting talents to escape and reach Nightfall Isle, where she finds Wolfer, her closest childhood friend. In the castle she meets Kelly, the self-proclaimed Queen of Nightfall who is married to Wolfer's twin. Kelly triggered the curse around which Johnson's complex fantasy-romance series is constructed. Although the plot may be slow moving, those who love detailed lovemaking scenes will revel in the 20 pages devoted to Alys and Wolfer's first intimate encounter. Diana Tixier Herald

Top Customer Reviews
Disclaimer: While I read the entire first book The Sword, I only made it about 85% of the way into The Wolf before nearly throwing my Kindle across the room. In an act of mercy I decided to ignore my rule of always finishing a book. Because seriously enough was enough.
1. Lack of conflict between the H/h. If it's so easy for them to be together, why has it taken this long?!? And if you aren't going to even attempt to have a conflict for the main H/h and instead focus on world building and a conflict that grows throughout each subsequent book: then please (please, please) don't throw in token conflict points just to gloss over them and take up page space.
(speaking of page space)
2. I have never (NEVER) seen so much info-dumping in my long history of reading. First a character thinks it (taking several paragraphs to do so) then when a new character comes in, the first character then explains everything they thought OUT LOUD to the new character. You know there is too much talking going on in a book when someone's dialogue is broken up into several paragraphs. (AND I MEAN SEVERAL AS IN MORE THAN 3...) It brings a whole new meaning to SHOW don't TELL.
(speaking of telling)
3. Can someone tell Kelly to be quiet and let the grown ups talk? She was slightly annoying in the first book. (To be fair she mainly just got annoying during the last half of the first book) But in this book I wanted to slap her. She's bossy, rude, condescending and frankly I'm surprised the brother's haven't revolted against their so called Queen and thrown her off the island yet. Cause I totally would have.
*After taking a glance at the reviews for the next couple of books, they don't so I am officially voting myself off the island because I am done with her.*
(speaking of the island)
4. The world the author created was very interesting but I found myself skimming a vast majority of the "explanations" because they were long and boring and felt almost like they had been ripped from an encyclopedia. It's like the book went like this: Character introduction-3 pgs, minor character developement-1 pg, world building-4 pgs, info dump about aspect of world building no one cares about-10 pgs.
(to sum it all up)
The brothers were awesome and I wish I could have held out longer because I wanted to see them all get their HEA. But frankly the women they are being paired with seem like a fate worse than death. And even if the women get better, they are all going to be stuck with Kelly (aka THE DISASTER - cause folks I hate to break it to the brothers but everything else they are going to face has to seem easy as pie compared to living with that woman...) Really I probably could have made it past the Kelly point if there hadn't been so much info-dumping. Kids info-dumping kills, just say no!
On the other hand I have read this style of book in the past so I do have some to compare it with.
I liked it, I liked the characters especially the younger brother, his is probably the only story that I really want to read.
I didn't love it, but I know a lot of others did and I can see why, I think deep down I struggled with the premise of 8 different but equally hot men stuck on a isle without women waiting for their true love.
While the books (I have read two now) do have some humour in them, it is very much male's laughing at females and females laughing at males- you know 'he is such a man Lol, doesn't get women at all!' which is not my favourite. Was all too much a power play between characters that are meant to love each other for me, but that is a very personal choice, I know a lot of readers love those kind of dynamics.
So, I guess my only wish is that the books could be about the main characters and leave Kelly in the first book where she belongs.
