A Great Paranormal Read
Brand chooses to turn his back on his kind due to fear of letting the wolf take control. Could he do better than his abusive and murderous sire? Would the other Earls heed to his ideals of equal rights? He fears the answer to be no. However, he quickly finds that he is not entirely alone with his radical ideals that would alter brood life forever. But will it be enough to end the slavery, torture and murderous old ways of the Brood of Fenrir? Will Brand be able to trust his inner wolf to carry out his plans if he succeeds?
The story itself is captivating and told primarily from Brand’s point of view. You’ll witness the trials and tribulations that both the human and wolf faces. While they are not human they don’t appear any different when not transformed. They also live for long periods, but are not immortal. The way of life within the brood is barbaric, where women and those whose inner wolf shows weakness, are often forced into slavery or sold off to different areas. Brand seeks to end this, but he also struggles internally to keep his own wolf at bay. He doesn’t want to hurt (or kill) anyone who doesn’t deserve it.
I thoroughly enjoyed the overall story, but I would of like a little more background on the wolves themselves. How did they come to be? How are they able to live amongst mankind when they live for centuries? Apart from that I thought this book was filled with action, mystery and just the right amount of passion. The outer and inner conflicts were balanced perfectly. This is a feat in itself as there were more than usual. However, the reader never gets lost.
The author, Coral Moore, wrote a great story. I hope to someday read more, and maybe the questions I had will be answered in another book. The way the story ended left it wide open for this possibility. *hint-hint* Originally Reviewed by Heather at Mother/Gamer/Writer

This book is full of violence and especially disturbing violence against women. They are slaves or at best barterring 'items'. There is no sexy love scenes. Only much violence and power plays. Not a hot sexy hero either.
Besides the above, in its own way, it was a good book I would only read once.
Brand is technically the king but wont accept the title and tries to remain a loner outside the broods. There are others that wish for him to accept his title and change the broods violent ways. There are many interesting characters and plot is good. It is a well developed story. The author 'captures' your interest and even though I wanted to page through the violent scenes I couldnt. There are many significant people in the cast of characters. Ingrid being one of them. Although many believe her to be insane even at the end of the story the author leaves you wondering if she is 'crazy as a fox' as the saying goes.
If you are looking for something different than the norm in this genre...this is the book. I would not say it was the best I ever read but I am glad I read it once. If it not for the violence I would have given it 4 stars for the authors imaginative and flowing story with deep characters.

The change of pace from everyday wolf legend mixed with Norse mythology is fresh and exciting.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Fate seemed to be against Brand Geirson when he was made king; there were so many things about his world he just did not want to deal with. Brand brings an unusual intenseness to this story making it a fast paced and exhilarating read. Alice’s timid nature bugged me and even though she was so ‘nice’ I did not find her character to be appealing at all.
Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Brand is an amazing character - he mixed just enough of the broody werewolf with the protecting and honorable hero to make him deep enough to really really like. The relationship he has with the other shapeshifters is quite an interesting one. As the one meant to rule them all, they should honor him, but since he threw it all away and lives without a pack of his own, they all look down on him at the same time. This causes him to become the target of a female wolf from his past who is just a bit psychotic and crazy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

When her plots place his best friend and new love of his life deep into danger, Brand grabs control of the broods to save their lives. Quite adventurous for a paranormal romance, it was very hard to put down and had me rooting for all the good guys in just the right places.

Broods of Fenrir can't decide if it's urban fantasy or horror, so of course, I loved it. Brand is the rightful king of the Broods (lines of werewolves) but after growing up under the cruel rule of his father he rejects the Broods to live a solitary life. Until they force him back in with his one weakness—protecting women. Of course one has to wonder how a man raised in such a horrible, violent environment manages to survive with any respect for women (or men). But let that question drift away with others like ″Werewolves?″Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Broods is engaging, vivid and energetic. And moody. Moody, moody, sexy alpha males, barely holding onto their rage, plus a one rightful king to save them all plot line and brightly realized characters (and a spice of Norse mythology) make for an enjoyable read. Definitely recommended.
