Had no trouble figuring out who s who although I do feel as if I missed something so I am certainly looking forward to reading the ones I missed and without a doubt the next oneSee my full review at A surprisingly enjoyable read with second chance romance intrigue and action I found the pace brisk characters likable narration style easy and engaging the dialog felt natural and there were several Ok did not see this one coming instances Some humorous touches were really chuckle worthy a picture of a werewolf with a mouthful of minty fresh toothpaste made me LOL While this is a third book in the series it is a first one for me but definitely won t be the last I received Possessed by a Wolf in exchange for a fair and honest review To be totally honest I wasn t sure about this one at first I m going to chalk that up to the fact that this is the first book in the series that I ve read but it s the 3rd book in the series Lesson learned who am I idding Well it sounded good anyway I really liked Lexie as well as Faran and throughout most of the book I felt for both of them Faran was a wolf who had been rejected by his mate Lexie was a human who didn t have the stomach for Faran s world She grew up around violence and manipulation and those memories still terrified her She couldn t resist the draw she felt toward Faran though and like it or not deep down she had feelings for him Crazy circumstances brought them back together and they both soon learned that nothing is exactly like it seems especially when there are supernatural forces than expected involvedEven though I was a tad bit confused than once I still enjoyed Possessed by a Wolf If nothing else that confusion reinforced the fact that I need to pick up the rest of the Horsemen series I have a feeling that a lot of that minor confusion will be totally cleared up after reading the previous books Just another lesson in the do as I say not as I do category Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy POSSESSED BY A WOLF is a pretty fun action packed story with an at times confusing world building which was partially due to my habitual tendency to jump blindly into the middle of a series That aside I enjoyed the tension and political machinations the characters have to work through while bullets fly people are put in deadly peril and things go boomWe get mystery doppelgangers fae and ghosts to Zu schnell keep us on our toes trying to figure out just whodunnit Thrilling action and much property damage aside the romance between Faran and Lexie was filled with mixed emotions and some wicked humorI liked how Faran and Lexie get thrust together and forced to be in eachother s company after so many years apart It forces them to work through their issues and inner turmoil and allows for some smart uips to be exchanged I enjoyed seeing Lexie s transformation and realization about her own emotions and experiences and how they affected her reaction and relationship with Faran Surrounding our main characters are other characters who I assume were in the previous two books and who are interesting enough that I want to go back and read about themPOSSESSED BY A WOLF is by no means the end of this series as this series is titled Horsemen and we need to figure out what trouble the fourth Horseman will find himself in I enjoyed throwing myself headlong into this story with its complex characters and exhilarating story. Are on a collision course For now Lexie is a prime suspect in the heist of a priceless ring and only Faran can help her find the jewel and restore peace to the royalingdom But first Lexie needs to trust in second chances and the supernatural.
Ashwood includes some fascinating mythology for her wonderfully complex characters Both Lexie and Faran are driven by the desire to do good and to overcome their pasts The foreign glittering Marcari Sleepless (Bird of Stone, kingdom only adds to the story s appeal RT Book Reviews 4 stars This is the best book I have read in a long time Both Lexie and Faran were wonderful believable characters You could follow from their past and their current dealings the growth which was ongoing through the story and maturity gained from both of them There was no unnecessary drama but plenty of action going on as these two deal with personal matters as well I can t wait for the next story in this continuing seriesIf I could I would give this book many pluses to add on to the stars First of all I have to say that I really love the paranormal genre Give me werebeasts phoenixes dragons etc I am ready to readSecondly this is the third book in a series and I found I did not need tonow what had happened in the previous volumes to make sense of this story I consider it a standalone which is in its favor The series is called Horsemen because it is about four warriors who remind people of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Our hero is Famine because he hates it so very much In order the books are Possessed by a Warrior Possessed by an Immortal Possessed by a Wolf and Possessed by the FallenThirdly I am always a sucker for the second chance tropeWhile this may be the third volume in the series we are uickly drawn into the world building we may have missed because we are reading out of order As I so often do The heroine and hero have a Past They were very much in love until Lexie discovered that her lover Faran is a werewolf capable of mauling a man to deathIn the present the Princess Amelie of Marcari is in love with and engaged to the Prince of Vidon Marcari employs an army of vampires Vidon hates the supernatural and employs an army of vampire slayers The Prince and Princess intend to end the age old enmity and usher in a new age of peace and uietLexie is a photographer hired to take pictures of the engagement party and the priceless wedding ring Electronic security was turned off and the top removed from the case for her convenience so we now right off the bat the ring is gonna get stolen and Lexie blamedThe action starts right away with gunshots shattering the huge windows in the ballroom A gigantic wolf wounded leaps through one of the openings and all the guards think it s a threat but Lexie recognizes her former lover and orders the guard away She also talks to Faran as if he were a dog Sit Stay It made me chuckle because course Faran is an alpha hero and since when do they get ordered to sit and stayDid I mention that Lexie s best friend is Chloe Anderson who herself is engaged to Sam Ralston a vampire and one of Princess Amelie s personal bodyguards No Well now I have Sam announces to his princess that the Knights of Vidon aka the vampire slayers had attacked the vampire soldiers who had accompanied Amelie to Vidon The Captain of the Knights said that the order had been given too soon I mention this detail because no one but Lexie picked up on it That bothered me because I think the Prince of Vidon Kyle Amelie Princess of Marcari and Sam ought to be be asking the uestion What do you mean by too soon but no one does Odd thatAnother detail that struck me as odd was that as Wolves mate for life and wolves never forget their first love Royal photographer Lexie Haven wasn't expecting to see her ex boyfriend Faran ever again She could accept that he was a spy but a werewolf No way No matter how good they had been tog.
Exie packs up her euipment Kyle s brother Prince Leo bestirs himself to roll up an extension cord and hand it to Lexie along with some seemingly pointless conversationA third detail that struck me as odd is that no one is paying attention to that priceless wedding ring in its case with the top off and the alarms turned off So those are chapters one and two and the reader has been informed of almost everything that is at stake including the UST between Lexie and Faran undiminished though she left him years agoConcatenations ensue The mystery is not as simple as it appears There are the machinations of ings and a prince There are secret passages There is poison There is a ring of power There are vampires and Light Fey in the backstory and of course that means the Dark Fey are present now uestions arise and are unanswered presumably to whet one s appetite for the next volume but at the same time the uestions work very much into the fabric of this story This story is not sacrificed to build interest in the nextI found it a page turner It s well written with none of those egregious errors of grammar punctuation vocabulary or spelling that infuriates meDefinitely going to have to read the other three books in the series Think I ll start with the first volume While photographing the royal wedding Lexie Haven s life is suddenly thrown into a deadly world of conspiracies and she ll have to trust her ex boyfriend second chances and the supernatural if she wants to survive in this thrilling paranormal romance Lexie had good reasons for steering clear of Faran when she found out he was a werewolf and now he has literally crashed back into her life and the reader can t help but get caught up in the story as Faran and Lexie struggle with emotional issues from the past while trying to stay alive with their desires continue to grow hotter the closer they get which adds lots of steamy passion to the story These strong compelling characters grab the reader s attentions from the very beginning and are easily related to while the fast paced and smooth flowing plot eeps readers on the edge with This is a new author for me and I am definitely not disappointed I really enjoyed this book and will be looking out for in the Horsemen Series This was a really easy read and I found myself finishing in one night For sure adding Sharon Ashwood to my To Read authors list I loved Faran Faran s head was bowed but he smiled with a touch of his old mischief That s what s great about dogs They adore you no matter what He s just so non chalant about things and likes to let it all hang out and Lexie that girl is anal about animals on her furniture hey said Lexie jumping up Get off the furniture But when she spun around Faran was back in human form and entirely naked He folded his hands behind his head and grinned I liked this book it wasn t only a romance story but an adventure as well While photographing the royal wedding Lexie Haven s life is suddenly thrown into a deadly world of conspiracies and she ll have to trust her ex boyfriend second chances and the supernatural if she wants to survive in this thrilling paranormal romance Sharon Ashwood has created a fascinating world with lots of interesting and different elements that add something extra to the stories I was completely engrossed in this story from beginning to end and while I have not read the previous two Ether she has very personal reasons for steering clear of monsters That is until he literally crashes into a royal gathering in all his furry glory and with a gunman on his tail Within minutes of seeing each other again the two estranged lovers.
