What I Thought  I loved this book! I read it on a journey south, from Scotland to essex, and couldn't put it down. I had to know what happened. There were a series of events that were woven together with such grace that I felt the story flowing, as I turned the pages.  I loved that I could get involved in the story. The characters were real. They had depth, flaws and loads personality. I felt like I knew each of them, and they were my friends. Throughout, I really felt as though I was alongside them, mixed up in the turmoil between Fenerec, With, Wizard and the Inquisition. I was rooting for one person, and hated another, but just like our favourite, gun-wielding witch in the story, I learned to love them.  I like the plot of the story and the unexpected little twists throughout. It moved fast enough and the twists were at just the right point to keep me guessing. I loved the how the main character reacted to some of the events that happened to her. She showed strength, intellect and that she is a true alpha, even if she doesn't know it. She is a girl, lost in what she has become, scared to look back. However, as we find out, sometimes the present isn't exactly want you think it is and the past is exactly what you need.  She became even more of a favourite character in my mind when she went against everything she should, stepped into the wolf's den and came out unscathed, all so that she could find a way to say her family. She used her problem solving skill and courage to take the next step in solving the plague, even if it meant turning into the thing she always avoided.  All in all, I found this story amazing. It was everything I hoped for and more. I, personally, cannot wait to read the next part in the story, but more specifically, I NEED to read more about Nicolina and Richard. I highly highly recommend reading this book!

When I signed up to review Winter Wolf for the blog tour, I didn't realize until I started reading it that it's technically the second book in the Witch & Wolf series. But it has different characters and really can be read as a standalone. I'm now curious to read the first one at some point in the future.  Nicole is a character I found myself liking pretty much right away. She has abilities that she has to hide so an organization known as the Inquisition won't find her and execute her. After she decides to use forbidden magic to investigate the cause of a murder that happened right next to her, she has to decide whether to save werewolves or let them die out. If they die out, she wouldn't have to worry about the Inquisition any longer, but she has family who are werewolves, which made me wonder why she hates the species so much.  My only issue with this novel is the repetition - Nicole repeats things A LOT, such as her fear of the Inquisition and that jobs for her as an actress have dried up. I lost count of how many times Nicole mentioned these things and found myself annoyed when she'd bring them up because I knew these things already. Other than this, I really liked the story. Winter Wolf is a fun and entertaining novel to lose yourself in with interesting characters and the situations they find themselves facing. There's a lot going on with the abilities Nicole has, the werewolves, and the Inquisition, and it was a race to the end to find out how everything was going to turn out. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I love Blain’s larger than life descriptions. She brings the supernatural world into sharp focus for her audience while still allowing your imagination to soar. Readers can’t help but picture both the scenery and the action in vivid detail. Her fun, approachable tone has a hint of tension in it, which builds the suspense of the story throughout. I appreciate how well written this novel is and how well thought out the storyline is. Blain kept me on my toes throughout with her plot twists, and kept me captivated with this intense story. Blain’s character development is fantastic. She drops you in the middle of this world, and then develops her characters bit by bit. I felt as if I was unraveling who everyone was as I was determining who did what. She doesn’t simply tell you who is who and what they’ve done, but allows you to meet them and then get to know them gradually as if they were a new friend. This made me feel so much closer to the story. This was most definitely a brilliant second novel in the Witch & Wolf series. Blain has created a wildly imaginative and larger than life story that will keep you hooked throughout.  Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Winter Wolf is the second book in a series, and I haven’t read the first one, so at the start, I struggled a bit with keeping the characters apart, and with figuring out what happened before this book starts. But…the book is amazing. Seriously. I couldn’t recommend it enough. It has so much lore, background story, such unique characters, and smooth, fluent writing, that you just have to read it to believe it. The murder on a bookstore employee throws Nicole in the middle of Inquisition business, which she doesn’t like at all. Guilt-ridden for not being able to save his life, she uses forbidden magic to investigate the past (how awesome is that?) and learns it was a disease that killed him, a disease that could very well kill all werewolves, destroying their species. Nicole must find someone to trust, but in her world, that’s not as easy as it sounds. And saving the werewolves might have disastrous consequences for her. So with a choice that is anything but easy, Nicole is driven onward, having to use forbidden magic to protect herself and others. The magic part is sublime, and it adds another dimension to this novel. The characters are complex and engaging, especially Nicole. She’s easy to relate to and with quite a few flaws, which makes her appear more realistic. The plot is fast-paced from start to finish, never giving the reader a break. An amazing read which covers a lot of topics, and will appeal to fans of paranormal, urban fantasy and suspense alike. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
