About the Author

Dianna Hardy is an international bestselling author of (cross-genre) fantasy fiction, most notable for her dark paranormal fantasy and the raw, intense Eye of the Storm series. But her heart-warming Once Times Thrice series proves she thrives in the light as much as the dark. Whatever your poison, what she loves most is to bring you stories that are action-packed, fast-paced and not short of heat, with the focus on character development, relationship dynamics, and the plot. She writes full-length novels and short fiction. Although quite active online, Dianna prefers the quiet company of nature and animals to the hustle and bustle of people. She loves anything paranormal (she doesn't really consider it "para"), organic food, walking barefoot, the smell of the woods after rain, and summer days. However, she is also sustained by coffee, chocolate and the occasional vodka. Having graduated from Richmond Drama School (London) in '98, she spent the next few years in a multitude of jobs (both acting and non-acting), studying anything that fascinated her, searching her soul, and finally found her passion where it had always been: at the end of a pen. She currently lives in South Hampshire (United Kingdom) with her fiancé and their daughter, where she writes full-time.

Another fantastic story by Dianna Hardy. She has taken her passion for fantasy and put it into this exciting, sensual and addicting story. When Dianna first told me about her new book, I was really nervous about reading it. She told me that it was not a happily ever after story and it was nothing like her previous writings. So jumping into the story blind with both feet, I was blown away. I loved this story so much I could not stop reading it. I was drawn in to the amount of angst and sorrow in her characters. The struggles that they have to go through pulls you deeper and deeper into the story. It is the first true dramatic supernatural story I have read. I liked that there is no happily ever after, and people actually have to work at making things happen, it's just not given to them. In her story, being a wolf is not all sunshine and rainbows. Its struggle, sorrow and life altering. So let me tell you a little about it. Dianna has introduces us to Lydia, a normal woman who works hard and keeps to herself. Not having so much of a relationship due to the fact that she has dreamed of her perfect man every night since she was a teenager. No man can compete with her dream lover. When Ryan (dream lover) reaches out in one of their dreams for help, Lydia begins to think she's either crazy or this guy just might be real. Along with the intense dreams, Lydia has been going through changes. She can suddenly smell everything intensely, and she can't get rid of the flu she has. When Taylor walks into her cafe and smells just like Ryan, Lydia realizes she might have just found her answer. Hoping to get answers, Lydia decides she must find and talk to Taylor, only he finds her first. Taylor becomes Lydia's only way of surviving the upcoming first night of a full moon. Determined to find Ryan, Lydia sets out on her own to find him. Not only does she find him, but finds herself in the middle of a battle between supernatural beings. Lydia finds out that not only is she not human, but a very special wolf and in the middle of the most unusual love triangles. Releasing the Wolf is an enticing read that I would highly recommend.

This 104 page book (also additional 21 pages that are ch 1 of the next book) has another outlook to the warewolf life. Written very well. Love that it's written in UK English, giving it older flare.

Paced. Took some license with lycan bonding principles. Good set up for the next book in this series.

Disappointed as the story idea could have great. By page 50 i was bored, skimming and thought this is going no where. Very little character development. Just nothing :-(

The plot of the book is very interesting, but the execution of writing was lacking. There were times when events unfolded didnt make sense and those mistakes made it difficult to follow the storyline.

Dianna Hardy Releasing The Wolf Eye Of The Storm #1 Paranormal romance (with plenty of hotness) at its best. This book is a quick read that will definitely leave you wanting more, in more ways than one. I was arguing with my partner the night I finished reading this and almost forgave him just to work out some of the urges and images going through my head. Incredibly well written, with each of the characters having their own place, I couldn’t fault it. Book 2 cannot come out fast enough, as the ending has definitely left me intrigued.

An Amazing Erotic Paranormal Romance! Review 6***** I love reading paranormal romances, so when I found out that the author was releasing this one in December last year, I quickly got myself a copy. Unfortunately, I have only now just managed to get to read it. I am kicking myself for not reading it sooner, because I absolutely LOVED it! Lydia Martin is a fantastic character. She thinks herself to be a normal woman, with a very high libido and who dreams of a mystery lover. However, she soon finds out she is not who she thought she was, and her world will never be the same again. I loved her character growth as she discovered who, and what, she was. It is difficult to do a character breakdown of the other members of this story without giving away any spoilers, so I'm not even going to try. However, I will say that Ryan, Taylor and Lawrence are H.O.T.!!! and leave it at that. *Fanning myself here!!* ;) This an extremely fast paced story that is full of danger, mystery, intrigue and sexy scenes! I struggled to put it down! In fact, I read it in one sitting. There are a few twists and turns that surprised me, but there is a huge twist near the end that completely threw me! I loved it, but I may never look at wolf packs the same way again! The cliffhanger at the end has me looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Cry Of The Wolf. Dianna Hardy is on my favourite authors list, and I would read anything she writes. Her books are well written and extremely entertaining. The characters are extremely lifelike and likeable. However, a word of warning: this story contains scenes of explicit sex and some violence. Therefore, I do not recommend this book to younger readers (16-). I do, however, highly recommend this book if you love erotic paranormal romances. - Lynn Worton
