Title: Embrace (Kane Wolves #2) Author: Annalise Grey Genre: YA (mature), Romance, Paranormal, Fantasy Format: EBook Length: 402 The story continues right were it left off in Howl. Sophie continues to be Alpha of two packs but has a lot to learn. When she discovers the truth and what her grandfather was hiding. You are going to say “Shut the Front Door”! With the new discoveries she can be Alpha for her entire race but with it comes sacrifices and what else will she gain with this new discovery. I loved the first novel and I loved the ending of Embrace. I will definitely be reading the conclusion of the series as soon as it comes out. It was paced right and finished reading it in about 8 hours. There was always something happening in the story and never seemed dull, the story had a good pace. In Embrace I found Sophie’s annoying at times. I saw her as a tease, hot one minute cold the next, she had Daniel wrapped around her finger and eating out of her hands or should I say paws. However, once she discovered what she wanted she became less annoying. I don’t see her as being a very strong person, not Alpha material anyway. I think Tristan got cheated on that part. Don’t get me wrong I love when novels have strong females in lead roles, but Sophie is just not one of them. Jamie was my favorite character in Howl and Daniel was well let just say not a favorite of mine. However I have changed my mind, I still love Jamie’s character but he wasn’t a major character in this novel, Daniel was a major character and he’s now my favorite in this series. I love the way he is witty, honesty, loyal, brave, strong and very tender. I was very surprised by his character and loved the way it turned out. He has completely done a 360. Embrace had a section that might be for Older Young Adult, but I found it was not too bad. There are also sections that are very descriptive especially when they go hunting, which I didn’t really enjoy reading and could have been left out in my opinion. I mean I didn’t read the book to see how they kill their pray, how it looks after they kill and how it taste. I can’t get over the fact that when the shift to wolves is planned; they undress themselves right in front of each other, so I question myself what happened when they don’t plan the shift and their clothing get shredded? Are they without clothing until they find some or until they return home? It just didn’t sit well with me when it did happen, but I guess it’s better than the alternative, I understand where the author was going with this, she wanted too keep it grounded as much as she could, instead of having the clothing disappear and reappear on their bodies, it makes sense. I just had difficulty with the taking off and putting on (the clothing).

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review* I LOVED this book and will reread it again. It is very moving and has a great pace. The writing is wonderful - better than many werewolf books I've read lately. There were a few places where words were missing or the punctuation was off but it didn't really slow me down. I wasn't too happy with who Sophie finally chooses but I didn't disagree with her choice. I know that sounds strange but when you read it, you'll understand. I wanted her to choose the other one but in the end her final choice made the most sense. Twists. This book has plenty of them and not all of them are big which I enjoyed because it kept me guessing. Of course, the bad guy is laid out from the beginning so you might read it and say "oh I know what's going to happen" and in a way you'd be right. But there are so many other little pieces that jump out at you that you're left sitting there glued to the book. *I'm trying really hard to not throw out major spoilers!* Overall though, if you enjoy young adult paranormal books, you'll most certainly like Embrace.

I really liked this story. I received this book free for an honest review. Before I read it, I figured it was fair to read the first book in the series so I could have a good idea about the story. I'm glad I did because I was comfortable diving in and knowing what was going on. The first thing I noticed was that the flow of the story was much improved from the first book and the main character, Sophie, had matured into her promise from the first book. Sophie has to take on a lot more responsibility and her duties and pain from her losses really shows in her character. I'm a character reader and I have to relate to my main character to enjoy a story, and Sophie is easy to get into and she seems real and well-rounded. We got the new introduction of the point of view of Daniel, which was nice, but he never felt as fully developed as Sophie. He seemed rather one-dimensional and no explanation was given for his about face from the first book that felt really believable. Frankly, it wasn't really believable how he acted in the other book if you considered how deeply in love he was supposed to be with Sophie. Pros: The book was a quick read, it was easy to get into the story, follow, and the action flowed so it never felt boring. The world was interesting, and I loved the introduction of the elven magic hinted at in the first book. I liked finding out the mystery of Sophie's ancestry. Cons: Both books were too short. At under 150 pages a piece, they were more novellas than novels. There was enough meat there that both books could have been expanded and time spent on characterization of the supporting characters and the villains. The villain in this story was very one-dimensional and the motivation was never really believable. More time could have been spent on the elf background/magic and the great-grandfather's motivation and experiences. Having his "ghost" hanging around was very forced and felt deus-ex-machina-y (but ended up doing nothing really). Her ex-boyfriend Jaime, was sort of written off and although he appears, he is also flat and his presence feels forced. I guess I just wanted better development and more story building, which could be an easy fix, since there could be another 100 pages added (hint hint) to make it novel length. Overall, it was a decent book, and since I read it quickly and had a hard time putting it down, I can recommend it to other readers of the genre (it would be best to read Howl first though). So, if you love paranormal romance, want a decent, original tale this is a story for you! I could also recommend this to older YA paranormal romance readers as both books contain adult themes.
