Overview

Shade Valley is rescued from complete anonymity by the legendary tale of the goddess Artimus, and the fabled wolf. Lila unwillingly moves to the foreboding small town with her newly divorced mother. Her first morning, she awakes shivering from a nightmare set to the rumbling backdrop of swaying trees and hallowed calls, to face her punishment. Lila is just an ordinary girl with dreams, which dull even her, until she meets the angelic faced teenagers that invite her into their clique. Despite warnings to stay away, from a disheveled local girl with a cerulean stare, she is drawn like a moth to a flame. Ignoring the foreboding caution, she is lured into their group and begins to date Reid, regardless of her steadily growing feelings for his best friend. Unbeknown to Lila she has arrived at a crucial time, bearing the sign they have waited for. The group seems to spend all their time at Sam's very large house, they laugh in the face of the town curfew and her parents are on a never-ending holiday. Suspense builds as she learns their secret, shocked to discover they are werewolves as one violently attacks her, she is rescued by the mysteriously scarred Cresida James.
Lila realizes these striking teenagers are werewolves. Intelligent creatures, told in myth, to be created in anger by the God of Thunder and Skies out of love for his beloved daughter, in revenge for her death.
Lila learns Cresida was infected by Sam, before her arrival, and now as a disgraced half-breed her life must end, when the next huntress arrives. Enthralled by their supernatural gifts, Lila secretly desires to become one of them.
The Alpha, Sam, has the ability to influence anyone who is weak willed enough to do as she wishes, but Lila is able to resist her persuasion, a trait Sam does not appreciate.

Enamored with the wolves, suddenly, deeply, driven by forbidden desire she longs to be part of the pack. Then without warning she is cut from the group, by leader Sam. Devastated she feels an intense desire to find a way back into their supernatural world. Unbelievably, the unrequited feelings for the alpha's mate are reciprocated. Driven by a primal force she does not yet understand Lila confronts the infuriated Sam, who deliberately attempts to bite her. Cresida manages to save Lila from the venomous attack just in time, narrowly avoiding her own uncanny fate.
Lila must come to terms with the fact that she is the one thing that threatens their existence. In the aftermath she isn't entirely convinced she needed to be rescued from the bite. Lila can no longer fight the supernatural calling inside. Chosen by the spirit of Artimus, what she is, and who she is are two different people and somewhere inside her the love and desire she feels, dooms her to make heart wrenching choices, which will either go against her kind or destroy the creatures she loves. In the unfolding fatal allure of hunter and prey.
A compelling debut novel about how love and fate chooses you, depicted in the tone of Maggie Stiefvater and Twilight. Inspired by Grecian demigod Artimus and the mythical femme fatale, Wolf Sirens is sure to enthrall all lovers of the fantasy action, romance genre.

    I really enjoyed the plot of this story and liked the concept of the book in general. This book was full of mysteries and I enjoyed anticipating every moment. I liked that the author kept me mostly in the dark for most of the book. I wasn’t sure of every aspect until the end of the story. This book had a very good flow to it and kept me entertained throughout. I liked how the author wrote this book and felt that she did a good job in making the plot believable even in the supernatural parts of the book. 

    Lila was a pretty good character. Some parts I wanted to shake her and tell her she is definitely missing the obvious, but she was interesting otherwise. Some parts in the book the author almost made her too blind to what was happening behind the scenes and that got annoying fast. Some parts she was strong and curious and others I felt that she was addicted to Cresida and her crew. She was definitely a contradicting character but I enjoyed the book from her perspective.

    The group of “intriguing teenagers” twisted me up pretty good. I was never totally sure if they were “bad” or “good” until more than half way though the book. Then when I noticed all of the little tweaks about them I finally figured it out. Then Cresida got me even more confused as I tried to figure out if she was really crazy or just seriously messed up. I felt that her character played a major role in how Lila acted toward the teens she hung out with, and that she was the one that really piqued her curiosity about them. 

    Overall this book was interesting and I really enjoyed trying to figure out the book as I went. I will definitely be looking for more books by this author and publisher. 

    *** I received this book as an eARC for my honest review and opinion.***

    This was alright

    I received this book free for an honest review.

    This was the first book I ever read with werewolves as the subject. I was drawn to this book because the description included Artemis, the Greek Goddess, who happens to be one of my favorite Greek Goddesses, and also that this was described as a romance novel.

    While there were hints of romance, the romance novel part never quite came to be.

    This book had great parts and not so great parts. The great parts were great reads packed with a lot of action and character development. The not so great parts were hard to get through as they seemed to just dragged.

    I did love watching the transformation of Lila from someone that tried to not stand out in school to a totally different person once she started to gain confidence.

    I also loved the development of the friendship between Lila and Cres.

    I was rooting for true love to win out...

    Starts slow, but well worth the read

    To be honest, I almost didn't manage to finish this book. Almost. I felt the intro was fairly dry and unrelatable and the initial setup into the book itself was typical of an angsty teenager in a new school after moving as a result if a nasty divorce between her parents. Everything I loath in YA books. But, I tend to try to finish what I start, so I pressed on. Then, almost imperceptibly, things shifted. They got interesting. By about a quarter of the way through the book, I realized I was absolutely hooked. I became interested in what Lila was going through, and how things would end up. I began to root for her and hope everything would work out for her. I got sucked into this world of romanticized werewolves and wanted to run right into their world with them. The descriptions of the characters, places, and situations were vivid and believable. The author definitely has a talent for word imagery. The only things I ended up disliking were: the intro itself and Lila's mother. I still feel the intro was dry, and placing it well before the lore of the world is laid out means that I, as the reader, was confused as to how the mythology played in, and without a point if reference it was just distracting. I believe it would have been better suited to the end. Also, Lila's mother drove me insane. She was indifferent (usually) and just basically a bad mother. I would have preferred to see either less of her or I would have wanted to see some sort of resolution between her and Lila, as this story at least appears to be a launching point to the next story, where I am unsure what role she could possibly play. Those are my only two negative notes, and they were definitely not enough to ruin my love for this story. I look forward to reading the next two and seeing where the author is taking this.

    I was given this book by the author for an honest review. this is book 1 of a series by author Tina Smith.

    This book is about high school and the ups and down that face the female lead character Lila and her challenge to fit in and about werewolves and  werewolf hunter(s) .

    I liked the characters and how they interacted with each other but I felt sorry for Lila and her relationship with her mother, Sophie. it is not a mother daughter relationship but almost like 2 friends living together.

    When I first started reading this book I was a little confused because I was not sure which direction it was going, almost like too much information thrown at the reader to start with. But as I went page by page it started to become clear and I was at a point where I was not going to stop until I finished the book.

    This book has suspense, lies, murder, betrayal and budding romance. if you like paranormal romance stories then you will like this book.

    A dark atmosphere, secrets and a forbidden love. 

    Everyone was waiting for Lila. Everyone watches Lila. Everyone expects something from Lila. After moving from the city, Lila is in the dark about a lot of things and walking on eggshells to discover the many secrets surrounding the clique and the city of Shade. 

    Waiting is a very well developed theme. Not in a boring way that make us want to turn away from the story rather the opposite. The details are subtly disclosed to pique the reader's interest and make him want to know, if Cresida is really mad or on drugs, to discover the motivations behind Sam's suspicious friendship and why Sky is so cold towards Lila. Ok, I confess that the last part is the main reason, I've been eagerly turning the pages...

    Even when Lila will be approached by Reid and will discover she's dating a werewolf, the story is not going to lose its plot in favor of the romance. In fact, the girl's feelings are more ones of curiousity about the wolves, their modes of operation and their stories that one occupied by hormones. 
    However, her obsession with Sky lead it on an eventful end. I confess that I would have liked more passion and emotions. I did not sigh while reading about the love triangle or about the forbidden one, so I was a little dissapointed. 

    But I understand that this first volume was used by author to introduce the characters and the plot. Personally, the story won me over thanks to all the secrets. My curiosity will be the end of me! Lol
    I liked the universe proposed by Tina Smith and I really want to discover more about Lila and its new future in "Fever".

    Wolf Sirens Forbiden--
    This book has its good or bad parts such as when Cresida and Lila meet. Lila ends up loving a werewolf while in total cliche fashion she ends up being his worst enemy a hunter....It was romantic with a tragic twist within it

    This story needs some polishing, but it does have a good storyline.

    In Forbidden, Lila and her mother move to Shade due to her mother's divorce. As Lila joins the in process school year and tries to make friends and adapt she discovers, things are not as they seem on the surface.

    Lila discovers who she was meant to be and who her fellow students are throughout the tale.

    The book starts with the legend of the town, which I found greatly enjoyable and feel adds to the authenticity of the story line.

    The characters and story are well written and engaging. At times, I did want to slap some sense into the characters but looking back at myself at that age, I want to slap some sense into myself.

    While, I am still not sure how I feel about the ending, it is passionately and well written.

    Overall, definitely a enjoyable tale.

    My Review: I am a bit conflicted about this book. Tina is a grea

    My Review:
    I am a bit conflicted about this book. Tina is a great writer, the blurb sounded so intriguing, yet I found some parts were quite predictable. 




    The Characters: 3/5
    Lila - seems overly suspicious and insecure. This is the first book I've read where the protagonist isn't pining for her best friend when she is moved to a new town, but had a fall out because she started dating her crush. Lila's insecurities make her appear weak and annoying. She is not your typical 'poor me' loner, but also not a character you attach to easily either. I found Lila's mom to be an uncaring selfish parent who clearly could not see when her daughter needed her. I can see she grows through out the book, yet I found I was rooting more for Cresida than for Lila.




    Sam - she is one of those characters that you love to hate and your feelings about her change throughout the book. In the beginning you stereotype her, and feel disillusioned, then journey through liking, pitying and finally disliking her character!




    Giny, Lily, Bianca - Of these three, I thought Giny was a sweetheart and very likable. Lily I couldn't stand, as she was your typical non-accepting character in the group towards Lila. Bianca played a very low-key part in this story but I think her character will be developed in the next book. 




    Reid & Sky - this was the one part of the story I felt was 100% predictable and I cannot say too much without spoiling it. I liked Reid even though he was being manipulated. Sky is a nice character - it was just a little bit too much/OTT on the pining side, but I was very sad too about the way it ended for Sky. 




    Cresida - This was my favourite character in the book. I would have liked to see her story more as the main character's POV than Lila's. Cresida is stuck between a rock and a hard place with what happened to her. I am looking forward to hopefully reading more about her in the next book. 




    Plot 2/5
    The romances are a bit predictable, as is the paranormal storyline. I hope in the next book it has a few major twists like this ending (which is the reason I need to read the next book). My heart actually broke as I read the last few pages. 




    Writing style: 3/5
    I enjoyed Tina's writing style. It was easy to follow and flowed smoothly. 




    Cover: 4/5
    I liked the cover and think it fit perfectly with the story. I loved the font and the scene together, which made it catchy. That probably persuaded me more to read this book than the description. 




    Pace: 5/5
    The pace was perfect. Maybe one of 2 scenes where Lila whined a page or two too long, but overall very good. 




    All is all this was a reasonable read and the ending has me wanting to see what happens in the next book.

    4STARS Mostly it is high school typical of every high school

    4STARS




    Mostly it is high school typical of every high school, You have your clicks, don't fit in, don't get along with your parents. You have a crush on someone and someone different likes you. All the regular teenage dramas except you learn that some of the teenagers are not teenager or even human. That jealousy can kill you. That the weird girl has a reason for being different. That their is more differences around than just country over city.




    Lila's parents got a divorce and her mom has moved back to the town she grew up it. It is cheaper to live in the country than the city. Lila's first few days of school she realizes that she does not fit in. No one even talks to her. Her mom does not care about her.
    Then when she meets someone Cresida she tries to tell her about the werewolves. That they want her. Cresida is different. She used to be one of the popular kids. Now she stays off by herself.
    The cool kids invite her to join their group that is competing in dance troupe they are short one girl. They start to pressure her to come watch them. They make her feel like she belongs.
    One of the cool guys Reid becomes her boyfriend fast. Lila ends up sleeping with him but all she can think of is another boy Sky.
    Cresida is still watching her. Warning her away from the group and than telling her it might be better if she does hang with them.








    I cared about the characters. I wanted things to workout for Lila. It is funny that Lila's mom was worried more about her when she was doing good then when she was sneaking out drinking and having sex.
    As a parent I did not like how fast and easy Lila and Reid got together. Especially when she was thinking about Sky Reid's best friend.
    The Mythology of where and how the werewolves came to be really has not made sense to me. Maybe as the next book comes out I will see and understand that part of the story more.
    Some of the werewolves are much older than high school age. Werewolves look really young and fit. You can't just tell how old one is by looking at them.
    I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. I hate having to wait for the next part of the story.

    Loved the Mystery
    This story does a great job of describing a teenage girl's desire to be accepted - and her inner strength when she realises that acceptance entails a whole lot of stuff she wasn't bargaining on. (Like the supernatural.)
    A great read.

    I would like to thank the author for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review

    This was a little bit of a roller-coaster read for me, so I'm going to rate it 3.5 stars. There were times I was just so-so about things going on, and there were times that I couldn’t put the book down. I guess part of it has to do with the fact that werewolves are my least favorite paranormal subject matter (although I keep trying my best to find werewolf stories to like).

    I really loved the mythology added to this story; it’s one of my favorite elements of fantasy stories. The story Tina Fey created surrounding the town of shade and its connection to Artemis, Apollo, and Zeus was very unique and interesting. I loved the idea of the wolves not really being gentle misunderstood creatures most of the time and having people to police them when they get out of hand. The story started out decently paced, but I felt like there was a big gap in the middle that was too slow for me… although there were enough twists in the plot to keep me wanting to keep reading. This was one of those reads that I stuck through the slow parts keeping in mind it was only the first book in a series and sometimes all the set up slows it down a bit. By the last few chapters I was happy I stuck through… this story had one of those endings that had me reaching for the second book immediately.

    One of the biggest things that made this a three star read for me was that I didn’t really like the main character. In the very beginning I felt for her and the situation that put her in Shade, but through most of the story I just wanted her to stop whining. It wasn’t until the very end of the book that she stopped irritating me. There was also a little bit of insta-love going on which tends to be a big issue for me. But there were other characters that held it together for me… like Sam, Sky, Reid, and Cres… who I won’t say a lot about because I don’t want to give away any spoilers.

    I received this book free in exchange for an honest and fair review.

    I enjoyed this story although I did feel it dragged on way too long in the lead up to where the action started. There seemed to be alot of unnecesary story going on. I found it quite frustrating that Lila was not getting what was happening and that it took a good half of the book for her to realise.

    I liked some of the characters and disliked others which is the authors intent. The description was done really well. Although there is one part between Lila and Reid where I thought the author rushed into an incident and I thought did that really happen? I was quite disappointed that seeing how strong a character Lila was that she let something like that happen. (Trying not to give away too much but when you read you will understand).

    The author wrote in such a way that I really felt the feelings that Lila had and was going through and felt a big part of the story.

    I was very disappointed, no actually I was really angry at the ending. It actually made me lose the desire to read the next book. I can only hope that the author has something really amazing in store for us in the next book.

    There were some gramatical errors which are technical details really. Words which should not be there, and some which were swapped around. They were easy to overlook and didnt take away too much from the reading experience.

    I did like the whole story idea and how it started out with a mythical explaination to the story. I think this story could be compacted down and still be a really good read.

    On the whole I did enjoy this book and gave 4 stars.

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

    We meet Lila who after her parents divorce move to the small town of shade. She doesn't know anyone in her new high school and is quite happy to blend into the background, until the 'In' crowd befriends her. Lily, Sam, Ginny, Bianca, Sky, Reid, Jackson. Cresida is the odd ball who hangs around in the background. The in crowd are wolves. who have a huge influence over the town. when Lila becomes one of the in crowd things start to happen, sorry guys no spoilers.

    This is a different take on werewolves. It's not pack story in that you fall in love getting bitten and live happily ever after. I liked the cover. I liked meeting the different characters. Cresida was really getting on my nerves. I kept waiting for the next thing she was going to do. I like Reid but felt a bit sorry for him. I kept wishing Lily would grow a pair and stand up to Cresida. I'm intrigued by this story and cant wait to see were it goes.

    Look forward to reading the next book

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Ms. Tina Smith for allowing me to read your book.

    First of all I have to say I love werewolf books. I wanted this to be good so bad. And for the first little bit of the intro I was into it. But very quickly I started to get frustrated. It was hard for me to like Lila at all when every five seconds her opinions about people changed for no apparent reason. And I don't mean just shifted slightly. I felt like one minute she hated certain people and the next she was dying to spend every waking moment with them. Or one minute she's repulsed entirely and the next super intrigued. She was either hot or cold and I couldn't find any logical reasons why her opinions changed. If I'm reading something in first person I expect to be taken along on my characters thoughts more clearly than in any other point of view. I should know everything she's thinking not be struggling to follow how she feels about those around her.

    There just wasn't anything exceptional about this book to me. The pacing was extremely slow. There wasn't a single other character I felt I got to know well enough to care what they thought or felt. And because of something the author set up as an ability for one of the characters I felt I couldn't trust anything they were saying or feeling 90% of the time anyway. Every time I'd start to connect a little bit with a character their actions would be spun in a complete 180 degrees. Cresida was the only one who even intrigued me at all and even she started to piss me off as she seemed way to resigned to her fate for a 17 year old.

    I never felt like I got a clear handle on the mythology here either. When someone mentions the Greek gods in their blurb I get interested. I have a degree in Classical Languages. I LOVE when that history is used and made new again. Other than a brief mention I'm not really sure how any of it fits in with what's going on. Very disappointing.

    All of the action in this book, the things that could have been interesting seem to be very glossed over. I still don't know what being a Hunter really means. Or even what these werewolves normal lives are like either. Other than maybe the first 20 pages and the last 20 pages I wanted to pull my hair out. I have the other two books and am curious about whether things get any better, but if I didn't already have them this isn't an author I would probably read again.

    I have very mixed emotions about this book, "Forbidden: Discover the Legend #1 by Tina Smith.

    Forbidden is set in the small town of Shade, where Lila has recently moved with her mother due to her parents' divorce and mother's semi-breakdown. Once there she is thrown into a world full of myths and legends, werewolves and hunters, love and lust. Lila must discover where she fits into all this and how to cope with what life brings her.

    Tina Smith has created an original world and interesting take on a not-so-original theme. (Let's face it, since Twilight there's been all sorts of vampire and werewolf books surfacing all over the place.) I like how she added some mythology, and in fact would have liked her to go a bit deeper into it. Her characters are well thought out and were easy to envision.

    My biggest complaint is that Lila, her main character, annoyed the absolute snot out of me for a large portion of the book. Her mannerisms and voice, her whininess, and the choices she made go completely against my personal character and even my morals a bit, to make her very hard to like and relate to. Towards the end, however, she does get more independent and confident in her role and starts to redeem herself.

    Overall, Forbidden is a good read. For me, it wasn't one that I couldn't put down, but it is worth checking out the rest of the series.

    Actually the main plot of this book is nothing special:

    An unpopular girl comes to a new town, because her parents get a divorce. When she enters school, there is ( as always ) a popular clique that is far better looking than everyone else.

    So what's going to happen next?

    Lila, the girl, joins the popular group and falls in love with the "queen"'s boyfriend, but because he isn't interested in her, she starts to date another guy. ( who is totally hot as well )

    In my opinion without the werewolves this book would simply be some kind of horrible teenage love novel. I also definitely did not understand why she had to start dating the other guy first. After some time she simply started to annoy me. Luckily they broke off after about half of the book.

    Unfortunately you can't deny the similarities to all the other paranormal/vampire books out there like "Twilight" and "House of Night". Bad looking girl falls in love with super astonishing guy, who is a supernatural being, and so on ..

    I still enjoyed reading the book though, because it has it's mysterys and it is easy to read. So I'll give 3 stars :)

    I absolutely loved Wolf Sirens!!! Although it started out a little slow in action, it was well worth it because it did set the stage for
    everything that came after. I loved the different twists & turns the story took - some of them were the last thing I would have
    expected to happen! This is a very different werewolf story from any others that I have read. It has a very unique dynamic, not
    only with the pack, but with the hunters as well. The ending was definitely a very unexpected one, but still left me wanting
    more! I am definitely a fan of Lila and Cresida!! I am hoping there will be a second book soon!!

    Lila is the typical outsider character who has flaws that make her seem real and a good amount of teen angst was thrown in without being overbearing and whinny. The huge chip on her shoulder was essential to the story development and had the reader sympathizing with the character for the experiences rather than those being repellant qualities.

    There were some points where the story could have been picked up a bit more. Some parts seemed to be repeated in places, I was not sure if that was to emphasize the reader’s understanding of the situation or to make the story seem longer. I am highly anticipating the sequel to this story.

    Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
