J. R. Ward has done it again! She’s hooked me into another world of hers on book 1. In all honesty, I had no idea where this would go when I started on page 1 and I still don’t know now that I reached the end. The thoughts I had were completely flipped on their axis. Lydia and her love of wolves is obvious through each and every interaction with the male wolf she encounters at the start of the story. Daniel and his nomadic ways and the interactions he has with others keeps him mysterious. Daniel and Lydia together, work, but for how long is the question. The Warden mentioned this was a cliffhanger, and it is, but not a complete one that leaves you totally cursing her out for making you wait a year for book 2. C.P. Phalen, Candy, and Sheriff Eastwind are characters I need to learn more about. I’m not sure how Xhex fits in, but I’m looking forward to finding out, not only for Lydia and Daniel’s sake, but for hers as well. I have a feeling this is going to be the biggest and baddest foe she has ever had to face. This first installment of the Wolven took me on a journey and every twist and turn was like taking the curve blind. I thought I knew what was around each corner, but damn if J. R. Ward didn’t rip control of the wheel right out of my hands. Every. Damn. Time. Well done, Warden, well f-ing done.
