More About the Author

I have written many things. Reams full of stories, pages upon pages of them, longhand, printed...scribbled. Four have now been published and a fifth has been accepted by my publisher - World Castle Publishing. All (more or less) part of a series, the 'Structure Chronicles'.

I was born in Yorkshire, England, in a town where Emily Bronte was a governess for a while, not at the same time I lived there, though, I hasten to add. I did, however, find the love of my life there - a Scottish writer working in advertising. We set up house together, got married and had two boys. A little later, we moved over the Pennines to Cheshire, and settled accompanied by a wide assortment of animals. With my family, I have the type of memories where the sun always shines.

I help my youngest son with MythCast, his small business of sculpting, casting and painting all types of collectables. I used to help more, but said youngest is making a name for himself as a sculptor and doing less casting. Much easier on the hands and back from my point of view! My husband is also a novel writer, and my eldest son re-sculpts people's bodies - in a gym & with nutrition, not with a knife or anything like that! On the whole, we're a creative lot, and I love my three guys dearly.

I also love drawing, writing, daydreaming, caffeine, chocolate, cakes, comic books, horror and fantasy...any book regardless of genre, as long as it's well written. Did I mention the chocolate and cake? Ah, yes I did, oh well. Talent is talent, so I don't care who or what the author is. We are all people - all the same species - one day, with a bit of luck, we'll remember that.

About the Author

I was born in Yorkshire, England, in a town where Emily Bronte was a governess for a while, not at the same time I lived there, though, I hasten to add. I did, however, find the love of my life there – a Scottish writer working in advertising. We set up house together, got married and had two boys. A little later, we moved over the Pennines to Cheshire, and settled accompanied by a wide assortment of animals. With my family, I have the type of memories where the sun always shines. I help my youngest son with his small business of sculpting, casting and painting all types of collectables. I love drawing, writing, daydreaming, caffeine, chocolate, cakes, comic books, horror and fantasy…any book regardless of genre, as long as it’s well written. Talent is talent…so I don’t care whether the author is male or female. However, I do think the ladies have the upper hand with the fantasy-romance-horror-raunchy mix. Keep it up, girls! If I take something apart and put it back together will it still work – or will it have lost the spark, the magic that made it work in the first place… https://www.facebook.com/denise.main1

I've been a fan of author Denise M. Main for many years. She's a hugely talented writer who invests truckloads of fascination and interest (and a fair bit of serious humour, too) into everything she writes. Her stories aren't the normal run of the mill. She tends to go more for the: boy meets girl, girl discovers she's either the daughter of an angel or a shapeshifter on the run, kind of story. Her latest, Wolf, is of the latter persuasion. I was expecting a sequel to her first book A Cold Day in Hell (another fantastic read, by the way). Instead, what I got was a U-turn down a side street and a whole hearted leap into the murky, elegant, traitorous and fabulous world of not just a clan of shapeshifters...but a whole damned dynasty of them!! Do yourself a favour. Pick up Wolf...hide yourself away with enough supplies to last you a couple of days...and give yourself the kind of reading treat that the New Year deserves.

I love fantasy books, and I thought this was going to be such a good read. I was very wrong.

It started off very well, and I was really enjoying it, when it suddenly deteriorated into incest, lots of incest. Father/daughter (who produced a son) brother/sister (who also produced a son). It actually turned into a different story, a bit like Jekyll and Hyde.

If I'd wanted to read a smutty book full of incest I would have chosen one. As it is, i was extremely disappointed that the story took this turn, and once it did, there was no turning back, it just continued in this vein, so I stopped reading.

This could have been such a good read, makes you wonder why the author seems so obsessed with incest, it spoilt the story.

A book which you can't readily put down, good holiday reading. Rather dark and shocking because of the incestuous tones in it, but Jenna is a fascinating flawed heroine. You may not look at a wolf again in quite the same way! I look forward to more from this author.

If Quentin Tarantino Directed and Produced Day Time Soap Operas 7 Feb. 2012
By bibliophile2011 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book gave me some serious mixed emotions. There is a lot of good things in this book but there are some disturbing elements that were hard to digest; that were not revealed by the other reviewers. I think future readers need to know. First- If you are put off by the violence and the vulgarity of say... a Quentin Tarantino film (personally I think he makes a great movie so that's not my point) or OVERLY disturbed by the subject matter content of Law and Order SVU then this book might not be for you.

Quick plot that I will try not to spoil: Jenna is an ex junkie, saved by someone from her past- a man named Gabriel. Gabriel will reintroduce Jenna slowly to a world that she has forgotten (I will not spoil why), one that was once filled with violence and pain. As she regains her memory and reconnects with lost family, she will discover she plays huge part in this supernatural world.

The good elements: Ms. Main is a very strong and creative writer. Her characters are vivid and in some ways mesmerizing, with strong and well formulated dialog. Jenna is a very alpha character, in fact almost every major character was strong and commanded attention at some point in the book. EVERY character is a "person" that you will hate at some point. These are werewolves with ugly behaviors and power issues. There is really no one to cheer for, however the author make no apologies or excuses for their behavior, which I respected. I ended up loving to hate them- kind of rooting for the villain in a day time drama. Her use of descriptive prose well done. The plot very well developed with intricate plot twists and turns that would make any soap opera junkie salivate.

Some negatives: There are too many twists and turns in the plot for my taste... other individuals may not mind that so much. Also I thought the ending was very abrupt. I went through all that drama, tension, and upheaval and I don't feel that anything was really resolved... I guess left open for a series of books?? I think that she could have provided closure and still had enough to continue on if she wanted to.

Some warnings: There is a lot of strong, sometimes vulgar language. (If you are a reader that is offended by this then do not purchase this book.) Although well delivered and appropriate for plot and character development, there is A LOT of violence from beginning to end. (If you are not into violence, not to be confused with action, then this book is not for you.) There is a lot of sexual content not so much at first but by the end of the book it seemed as though everyone was in heat. Male, female, it did not matter...whoever was handy and available for sex had sex if you get my meaning or talked about sexual acts that they had.

The parts I found hard to digest at times: The characters were really animalistic in some respects. It seems as though everyone is somehow related by either half siblings, full siblings, father, daughters, sons...related in some way. YET they still wanted to have sex or relations with each other. I could not tell if they ALL really were related or just called themselves brother and sister. But as far as sex went...they acted like pack animals. Also some of that sex was really violent and rough. No lie it kind of creeped me out at times.

Okay... So I wanted to give an objective review even though I did not care for the second half of the book. she gets three stars for the positives. While this storyline was a bit much for me and by the end not to my liking, I did not want to bash it. I did finish the book but at times It just was too intense and uncomfortable for me. Others may not mind it... in fact I am sure that I have probably peaked the curiosity of some. But I wanted to warn people because I felt that the product description was a bit misleading and I would have liked to have been warned.

An intriguing read 2 July 2013

I quite enjoyed this book. I loved the werewolf aspect to it, or shifters as they are called. However, with this book I would have liked to see more of the other shifters, and not just the wolves. The characters, though, sucked you in and the storyline was fast-paced and the action never stopped! A sexy, romantic, quirky novel that keeps pulling you in until you're done! That being said, it thought the book ended rather abruptly :( I would have liked to see a little more of a settling of the plot, but perhaps that will come in another installment.
Awkward and Disturbing 2 April 2013
By M. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The one thing that kept me up reading this beyond my bedtime were the characters. I'm a fan of the dark, uglier side of humanity in Literature, and the characters did not disappoint in that regard. However, as a fan of Quentin Tarantino films, I have to absolutely, wholeheartedly disagree with the other review- this would not make a good film, let a lone a Tarantino production.

First off, the very beginning of the book is so sketchy and jumps from one thing to the next I was thoroughly confused and frustrated by the 2nd page. I'm an English major. I know how to read complicated texts. I know how to analyze. But the flow was disjointed and made absolutely no sense. I kept reading only in the hopes of everything being explained. Which, that did happen, eventually, so I was okay. But then when Jenna 'meets' Lone Wolf? I don't want to give away any spoilers, but I think what he did to rescue Jenna was an extreme overreaction. I get that the story's paranormal people are supposed to operate on a different level of thinking and living than the rest of the normal world, but really?

The point that this book became a complete irritation to me was when Jenna is reunited with her father. The little glimpses the author gives into what's to come later in the story just absolutely turned me off and made me feel like she had tried too hard to make the story intriguing and mysterious. One secret child is fine. But two? And don't get me started on who I suspect her first born's father is. Let it suffice for me to say Ew.

I won't recommend this book to my friends. But as a review for the Amazon users at large, I say, if you like dark, dirty and gritty with a hint of "Maybe none of these people are even sane", then this book just might be for you. But for me? I won't be finishing it. No thanks.
