Now the premise is good, I really liked the storyline, however for me it was far too slow getting to the point. I am by no means an author and never claim to be, however I just know what I like and this wasn't it.
That's not to say that I didn't like the writing or the way it was written. I read a lot of books third person so this never bothered me, however it just took too long in the build up, don't get me wrong I like tension building, but this book didn't so much as build the tension as plod along. I felt the author could have done away with the first quarter of the book and I found myself skipping bits.
I liked Issac, he was very modern and that came across and I liked that the author chose to do M/M relationships as the main focus. I didn't like his brother Matthew all that much. He was very traditional in the relic kind of way for me.
I won't diss this book because it really wasn't that bad, it just didn't do it for me.
THE PERSECUTION OF THE WOLVES by Lucy Felthouse is a paranormal mystery that is sure to entertain. We soon learn that Matthew and Isaac Adams live in the village of Eyam and are more than meets the eye - for not only are they the local GP and barman, they are also werewolves that are hundreds of years old. Most of the village know who and what they are and protect them, but when a mutilated sheep is found on one of the local farms, suspicion starts to land on them. Determined to uncover the culprit, they begin to investigate, and then the mayhem really begins. Overall the book is good, but I did find it a little slow and drawn out in parts. With unexpected friendships and passion, plenty of supernatural action and a very descriptive setting, THE PERSECUTION OF THE WOLVES by Lucy Felthouse is a solid read.
*I voluntarily reviewed this book from TBC on FB
I really enjoyed this story. It flowed well, was totally believable and was a great read. There iss some explicit sex which is was well executed and isn't excessive, and these relationships are integral to the story. I will be reading more from this author
it is an easy read and the storyline follows 2 werewolves who have lived in Eyam for four hundred years with the villagers knowing there secret. suddenly they find that they are being set up and have to find out by whom and why. the plot was good but I found it obvious who had set them up. there are some interesting love subplots in the story which add to the plot overall it was a good and easy read.
I loved the authors writing and her descriptions of the village and it's history. I also love it when you're reading a book and the characters are enjoying a good cup of tea and it's written so well you need to put the book down, boil the kettle and make yourself a cuppa to go along with them.
I really hope there will be a follow up to this book.
Where to start! There's so much going on in this book and so many curious questions I asked myself and will never know the answers to. Why? Well not solely because of the content but because the way my mind works. The story is set in the historical village of Eyam and of course any student of history will immediately be sparked by this. What a wonderful imaginative journey the book took me on. Yes it's fiction and of course didn't happen (if I was being weird now I'd put the words "or did it" in brackets). But what if... The book led me to asking all kinds of questions around the contents wanting to know more about the place and the fictional history. It's easy enough to find historical information about the village but I wanted to know more about the lives of our werewolf brothers - of course I'll never get those answers but it was fun wondering about it all.
The descriptions and characters in the book are brought to life very easily. I did guess the ending but also dismissed it a couple of times before going back to it. The book is standard length and contains a good story on it's own. The plot is developed and immersive. There are plenty of characters to like. I enjoyed the sheer humanity within the book, the love and friendship displayed was something akin to some of my own experiences and it may have made me say awww a few times.
Now on to the bit you've probably been waiting for: The SEX. Yes I used capital letters mid-sentence. There are many M/M and M/F scenes. All of which are smoldering hot. Although it takes a little while for the first sex scene to appear in the book by this time you've got to know the characters a little and are invested in them a little. I almost found myself high fiving and cheering them on when they got all lusty.
I've read a few Lucy Felthouse books and I have to say this was one of my favourites. Yes it's about the sex but she shows in this that imagination can run it's wibbly wobbly line and that good characters and plot are allowed in a sexy book. She shows that even a small village visited as a tourist can be brought to life and used as a tool to spark a story. It also came across clearly that Lucy loves and respects the village and it's history.
The small appenddum at the end of the story to describe the setting and history was a nice touch and those who are unfamiliar with the history of Eyam but wanting to know more about it before embarking on the story can safely read it without spoiling the story itself.
