Captive of Wolves - Book Breakdown

For years, the monsters who killed my family have held me in a cage. Brutalized and half-starved. Only kept alive so they can steal my blood.

Until one evening when four eerily gorgeous men break me out of my prison.

They give me a soft bed and delicious food. They say they'll protect me—but their generosity may come at a price.

My rescuers are monsters like my captors: fae who shift into wolves. A curse gripping the faerie realm turns them wild under the full moon. Only my blood can cure their rage.

These fearsome men need me, and not just to lift the curse. A tragedy left them outcasts, and offering me to their rulers could win them back the home and the power they lost.

No matter how kindly they treat me, no matter how their smoldering eyes and strong hands stir unfamiliar desires in both my body and my heart, their castle is just another prison. As long as I'm a prize more than a person, my life will never be my own.

I've survived this long without giving up. I won't roll over now. But how can one damaged human girl hold her own against the savage fae?

*Captive of Wolves is the first in a new paranormal romance saga featuring possessive wolf shifters, fraught fae politics, and a wounded heroine coming into her own. Grab it now and get swept away in the fantasy!*

Book Breakdown

First, let's get the boring stuff out of the way. This book was given to me by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Now, let's talk about this book. Where to start?

This book follows a woman who was stolen from her home and kept in a cage for eight years. Then she's saved by some fae werewolves. The next 80% of the book's spent with her girl having a moment with each of the guys. Not all good moments there's one guy who hates her. No plot, just a guy who scares and bullies her and two guys who want to sleep with her. Then a guy who's just kind of in the middle about her. 

Then the plot finally kicks in and ends with a little fight and some blood-drinking. Only to have the guys take about sharing her. Like she's a toy. Yeah. 

I had no idea this was a reverse harem novel and, had I known - I'd never have picked it up. That genre isn't my thing. 

The writing is fine and dandy and, I loved that the main character is disabled: some good representation at least. Besides the hack of a plot for most of the book, it's not bad. Just not my thing. If you're into this kind of genre, then I say give it a go. For me, I'll be passing on this series.
