I know, I am very behind, there are 10 books in the Grey Wolf Series. I have only read number one. I really like the characters Quinn Loftis has created. She writes them with ease to which you get a clear picture of what she is portraying. The plot of the story was a little easy to guess, but I did enjoy the storyline and will continue with the series to see where the story take the lead characters. Jacque and Fane are the lead characters, you could say Jen and Sallay are as well since they are Jacque's best friends, and they are in many parts of the story. This is a paranormal romance, full of werewolves, sarcasm and teenage angst.
The story starts with Fane, he is moving into the house across the street form Jacque, he is the new foreign exchange student from Romania (yes he is the prince of wolves). While he is saying his goodbyes he locks eyes with Jacque, they have an instant connection. She feels like he is speaking in her mind but thinks she is just over thinking because he is very attractive. I think if I heard voices in my head that were not my own I might question it a little bit.
The story moves very quickly from the first sighting to being introduced, then to finding out Fane is a werewolf, and oddly not freaking out about it. Then finding out Jacque is a half werewolf herself, which her mother was hiding that information in hopes to save her daughter from the lifestyle, (being an overprotective mother myself, I get keeping your kids out of harm's way physically and emotionally). Jacque is connected to Fane by a bond, you learn the bond can be challenged and that is where the conflict in lies for Prince of Wolves.
A small thing I did not care for in this book is that it seemed to take place in a very short period of time. I would have liked to see them spend the summer getting to know one another, possibly start school, and have something come up from school, and not the way it happened in the story. However, I truly liked the story just a few things made me question what was going on. I do not want to give away spoilers as some of the questions are from the main plots to the story.
I recommend Prince of Wolves. It was a fast, fun read that was not too heavy for the young reader. I look forward to getting the next book in the series and seeing what lies in store for the characters.
TS901: Dominion, sequel to TS901: Anomaly is another hit from Stacey Rourke and Tish Thawer. I was very excited to dive back in to the TS901 world.
I think that Stacey and Tish got my hint about wanting to know Gigi's back story, and did they ever deliver. A plot twist I would have never seen coming with her story. You also get a little more of Eugene's story, which pulls at the heartstrings a little. The whole book is filled with twist and turns you will not see coming. You think the story line is heading in one direction and bam, its leaping all the way to left field, and you're like "oh my god" I must read faster to find out what is going to happen next.
Dominion takes place shortly after Anomaly. With the maly rebellion taking place , the characters have started to really embrace their anomalies, to fight back against the nary army on the Hill. Their main goal "Save Gigi". Thia, Evan, Jules, and Lance are heading back into the Hill to save Gigi. Leaving Eugene behind to sleep off his drinking, he deserved it from what he had to bare witness to. As the team was getting ready to sneak into the Hill from and underground tunnel, opening a door this is where the plot twist comes into play. I cannot go into detail, for you have to have that element of surprise while you are reading to feel how the characters felt at this given second.
Through the story I put myself in Thia's shoes from the standpoint of trust. Trust is everything. You have to have trust in everything, from relationships, romantic or platonic to knowing what you are doing. Dominion questions trust in many aspects.
Characters in this book are not who you think they are, just because they have the outward appearance of those you know and trust, doesn't mean you should.
I highly recommend TS901: Dominion. You will have to read TS:901 Anomaly before you read this. Both books are fast paced, action packed, and have witty humor thrown in. It really makes this books a great read. I have become a huge fan of the characters and the world Stacey and Tish have created. I cannot wait to see what these two very talented authors can cook up in the next TS:901.
