    More About the Author

    Candy lives in Ayrshire, Scotland with her family and two four year old cats who think they are kittens. She has been a fan of fantasy fiction (and sci-fi as long as it isn't too technical) since her first year at university when a friend introduced her to talking dragons.
    She started writing on Christmas Day 2003 when she sat down and planned out her first book which (after many revisions) became the first book in the Planet Wolf Series, Wolves and War.
    Candy works in accountancy, scribbles words in amongst the figures and carries a notebook everywhere she goes (in which she writes down ideas and stories). She has been known to drive off the motorway, park the car in the first available safe spot and write for an hour and more.

    5.0 out of 5 stars wolves and war 7 Feb. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    If you like original ideas, good plots and a great page turning read, then this is for you!
    I like sci-fi and I like fantasy, this has both in spades.
    Could not put my kindle down!
    Just about to buy the next in the series.
    Get it, read it, enjoy it.

    P.S. Have now read the whole series, and boy are they all as good as the first!
    Enjoy, Kev.

    5.0 out of 5 stars I love wolves now! 31 Dec. 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I bought this book on recommendation from a friend, and I have to say that I was NOT disappointed. A great story, with some fantastic characters (both human and wolf), and some fantastic writing.

    I'll try not to spoil the plot, but you can expect battles, nasty villains, loveable lead characters, and a very well thought-out world for the story to take place in, I hope we get to see more of it in the later books!

    2.0 out of 5 stars Nice story, shame about the prose 5 Oct. 2012
    By LizJ
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I downloaded this book for free after reading the glowing reviews. However, I have to say I was disappointed in the quality of the writing. The story was engaging enough, but I intensely disliked the occasional comments alluding to significant events in the future, and found the dialogue very stilted and poorly written.

    I did not enjoy this book enough to bother with the sequels, even if they were free. I do believe that if this author keeps polishing her skills, and perhaps can find a good editor to work with, she will produce interesting books in the future.

    This book was classified as Science Fiction and Fantasy, but it should have been labelled as young adult fiction, in my opinion.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Painful reminder of the costs of war 8 Mar. 2014
    By humanitysdarkerside VINE VOICE
    Format:Kindle Edition
    At the outset I want to make you aware of the British English / Scottish English phrasing and spelling in "Wolves and War". NOT American English!!! Because of the sometimes young phrasing, I feel "Wolves and War" is meant for young adults and up. While harsh at times the violence is not descriptive. There is some romance, but it is about as innocent as romance can get. What you do need to remember (sort of a warning) is that "Wolves and War" is about war and war is anything but nice.

    On to the fun stuff.

    I really enjoyed "Wolves and War". At times I hurt because of the terrible changes to the lives of some of the women and children. War's nature is gruesome. I have NEVER experienced it myself and am speaking solely as one who reads and listens and watches. What amazes me time and again is what people are willing to put up with if the alternative is death. Often I have wondered why people choose to live rather than kill themselves when their lives become so miserable. Some of the lives on the Southern Continent end up being what I would call gruesome. Yet, somehow life is chosen. Why?

    "Wolves and War" does not answer my why. In fact, it leaves me there with my questions. Ms. Rae has done a brilliant thing in doing that because I do not really want another person to answer all my whys. I don't even need there to be an answer to my whys.

    "Wolves and War" is a space opera type of Science Fiction - character and world-building is more important than technology.

    When the Argyll has to land on the Northern Continent the crew and settlers have to abandon ship before it sinks leaving them without most of their doodads (I know, an extremely technological term).

    4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent SCI-FI / Fantasy 15 Jan. 2015
    By Steve.J TOP 500 REVIEWER
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This series of books about humans telepathically joining with an alien species that resembles an earth-like wolf species (albeit much larger), is very reminscent of the Anne McCaffrey Dragon series and that is no bad thing, as the writing style of Candy Rae harks back to the early Anne McCaffrey style as well, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

    If you enjoy the cross-over style of sci-fi / fantasy writing, then it is well worthwhile giving the first book in this series a go (especially as it is currently offered for free on Amazon). At times, it feels as though the book is written for young adults, with the violence and love interests toned down a bit, but a really entertaining read for all of that!!

    At times I found it a bit irritating to keep track of the characters and the book suffered from a lack of editing / proof reading, which is often the case with Kindle published books, but I appreciate that new authors need to keep costs down in effort to get published, so I don't get too upset by minimal editing / proof reading as long as the story is engaging, which this one is.

    I have bought the 2nd and 3rd books in the series and not been dissapointed in their entertainment value, so I can only say again, give this a go if you are looking for a new Sci-Fi / Fantasy author. I think i will be buying more in the series. I will not add any spoilers in the review as the product pages give a quick precis of the books.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting concept mix of SF and fantasy 15 Jan. 2013
    By Lainey.
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I thoroughly enjoyed the ideas in this storyline, the well thought-out background of the Lind species and even the thought put into their language etc. If people enjoy the Anne McCaffrey Pern series I think they would find a kindred 'spirit' in this series. The Lind are an intelligent alien species who, refreshingly, are friendly and helpful to the newly stranded Earth refugees and enter into a symbiotic relationship benefiting both humans and the giant wolf-like Lind. As the years progress we learn more about the developing civilisation on the northern continent and the blending of both cultures. Eventually they will need to stand and fight together against the Lind's violent southern 'cousins',the Larg,- and the discovery that another Earth ship, a prison ship holding thousands of men with truly medieval and cruel intentions, also crashed on the southern continent and are turning envious eyes northwards...
    The only quibble I have is purely geeky, in that I found the lack of thorough proof-reading at times intruded on my enjoyment. Spelling mistakes or even the wrong word use eg. 'rein/reign' etc can be quite distracting to a pedantic pain like me! Not that it spoilt my enjoyment enough to stop me going on to read the rest of the series and the continuing expansion of the Lind/human world!
