Top critical review
A good read - but overpriced compared to Book 1.
on 8 January 2013
I recently read The Prince of Wolves (Book 1) in "The Grey Wolf" series and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. This book however was more than double the price which is disappointing (77p for Book 1 and £1.87 for Book 2) as they are both of a similar size.
I was really excited at the beginning of the book and looked forward to the Bonding Ceremony, only for another cruel twist to unfold. I'm not sure if it was just me, but I found myself wanting to skip parts of the book and just find out what happened to Jacque and Fane. So much so I literally skimmed some pages. That being said, Quinn really does write some amazing scenes, and in some places my eyes where glued to the pages.
The supporting characters in this book (unfortunately for me) I found quite bland, with the exception of Fane's parent's, who carried an air of regal grace about them. Jen and Sally I found slightly more irritating than in the first book, however with that said, I am looking forward to reading "Just One Drop" (Book 3) and seeing what happens with Jen and Decebel's relationship.
In places I felt so sad for Jacque, in others I bathed in the love that she and Fane share. All in all it was a good book. I will read the third (which is priced at £1.97) when I get around to it.
3.5 out of 5 from me...
