Centuries of political games killed most of the female werewolves. Now only a few survive, and the Elders work to change the old ways of thinking.
Winter, the only daughter of the SilverPaw Alpha, finally meets the soul Gaia has chosen for her: Sterling, the cold, demanding, and entirely-too-human Alpha of the tiny SnowFang pack.
Thrust into a world of human wealth for which she was never prepared, Winter must become Sterling's flawless wife and Luna from the moment she arrives. The city is full of threats, both werewolf and human, and Sterling's past is full of secrets best left undisturbed.
When they are betrayed by those closest to them, Winter and Sterling embark on a dangerous game of brinkmanship that will change their lives, and the future of the werewolves, forever.

I have a history with this book, which is surprising considering how much I enjoyed it this time around. I ended up DNFing it in April of 2018 because things were moving too slowly for my taste. The audio book helped immensely with that problem. I'm an impatient person so if I'm physically reading a book that's slow moving I tend to skim ahead and barely get a sense of the story. The audio book obligated me to slow down and just listen. I'm happy to say the ending even got my heart racing! In the werewolf society that was set up, the outward image people have of you, your actions and other peoples actions towards you or a situation you're involved in matters a great deal. It's all about honor, prestige, and whatnot. Winter's father put her through a lot in order to find her mate. I liked how she took it in stride and after that ordeal became who she truly was with Sterling. That is, a bad*ss with a backbone who will do whatever is in her power to protect the people that in return protect and defend her. Sterling was a great guy that sometimes had a temper. I figured there was nothing special about him until the last chapter of the novel. Now I'm intrigued and I definitely want to know more. I would also love to know how this can/will(?) eventually come into play in future novels. The world the author started fleshing out in this first book in a future series has proven to be fascinating! I don't know if this series is going to have a couple per book or continue on with Winter and Sterling. What ever direction she chooses to go is fine by me! I just really just want to know what happens next at this point. I hope that things move at a faster pace in future novels though. The Audio Book: I love Nicole Poole's narration! She has an amazing and realistic range of accents and voices (both male and female). She does any book she reads justice!
The Snowfang Bride. I have been privileged to follow the author Merry Ravenell from the earlier stages of this book and have only seen her work grow and flourish. If you have not heard of her then do take note. I love the characters Winter, Sterling and the whole of Snowfang and of course Mint. So much so that I have read this book through to completion in its various edits three times. Each time more splendorous than the last. This is not you typical werewolf story. Sometimes you stumble across an author that engages you in a way that you are hooked and left thrashing for more... the next page, the next chapter, and the next book. Be prepared to be reeled into the world of Snowfang. Here you will find yourself being immersed with the characters and experience a gambit of emotion as you share in their struggle, passion, and betrayal. Merry Ravenell is becoming one of my all time memorable and favorite authors as she is able to create a book that springs to life and pulls you in blurring the lines between your reality and hers. I can not fully do this book justice but hope that you plunge in and relish in a read that is as indulgently satisfying as your favorite dessert. I find mine layered in fluffy moist layers, drizzled in decadent dark chocolate and can not wait to sink my teeth in for more.
