Who will come out on top?

Freya's life is bland, mundane, just how she likes it... until two men walk into it and refuse to leave.

Two very different men who both inhabit very different, sinister worlds, and who both want her; her body and her mind. She has to choose – the elegantly charming aristocrat with a shady family and an unhealthy obsession for her, or the dangerously rugged man who claimed she was his, and now hates her more than his worst enemy.

Aaron is the alpha-heir to the most ruthless wolf-shifter pack in the country. His pack needs him to take a Luna and take control. He needs a Luna, and fast. Since he believes fated-mates are a thing of myth he has no problem with an arranged marriage. So he's unprepared for a mere human to waltz in and disrupt his precious plans by making him fall for her. However, once he's sure she's his absolutely nothing, not even her betrothed, will stop him from taking her.

Contains mature content and is recommended for 18+ due to explicit language and sex scenes

3 out of 5 (good)

LUNA ASCENDING is the first book in the Wolves of Fenrir Watch and we find a world on the brink of war, with the humans blissfully unaware of anything.

Freya thinks she is human but there is something about her that will make you think otherwise. Maybe it's the dodgy electrics or the migraines, but from the very beginning, you know she isn't who she thinks she is. With two major factions after her, Freya needs to figure out just who she is before very much longer.

Whilst the premise of this story is a good one, the execution was a bit rough. I definitely wouldn't call it a romance as there is none. Erotica, maybe. I felt no connection between our main characters, not even the 'good' ones. There is a scene halfway through that is rape. She is coerced by a spell and thinks she wants it, but it's still rape. So be warned. The sex scenes between her and the other MC are hot (ish) but because of no connection, they still felt quite clinical. There was a lot of telling and not so much showing in this story.

It finishes on a cliffhanger and I am curious enough to want to continue this story and get some answers to the questions I have. It is very fast-paced with enough spelling and editorial errors to be worth mentioning. I found this to be a quick read but enjoyable.

Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Let me introduce myself - I'm Zana Wilder, I live with my husky in the rural wilds of Scotland, writing (and reading!) paranormal and fantasy stories with a pinch of naughtiness.

I do love a bit of fantasy backbone to my romance - it can't just be steamy, it has to draw you into the storyline too! You can rely on a Zana Wilder book to deliver intrigue and plot twist, laced with a little bit of steam.
