Curse of the Wolf was about this Veela, Gloriana, who has a curse set down on her... One that has already hurt someone very much. When she meets Alex, the werewolf, she's afraid of what might happen to him as she starts to feel something. Meanwhile, she's still seeking revenge for the death of her previous lover and trying to keep safe. She's got a ton going on and the story follows her journey.
I thought this story was very different and very good! The beginning, while it drew me in with the story line started off weird and I believe a bit too fast between Alex and Gloriana but as we get more into the story I really loved it. I loved the different kind of supernatural that was thrown into this story. It wasn't the normal werewolf story like I was expecting. There were things like veela, elves, and sorcerers all included in one story. I also liked the fact that it didn't seem fake -- it was a believable story set in our normal world with a few differences. It wasn't too far fetched that it made me not want to read it.
The only thing I didn't like was the fact that while there were details about certain things, I still felt a little wanting. I feel the characters weren't as well developed as I would have liked even if they were entertaining. Even when they were hearing their thoughts it seemed impersonal and I had a hard time connecting fully with the characters while they still were understandable.
This book was a bit steamy because it is a romance and it's not a young adult book. I really liked the story and I really liked the plot and how it kept moving along. It didn't drag at all and I really liked that about the story after reading some that were too slow!
|My rating: 3/5|
