Review: Prince of Wolves
By: Quinn Loftis
Release Date: June 29, 2011
Series: The Grey Wolves
Jaque Pierce was just an ordinary 17 year old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two weeks of their summer was going to get a lot more interesting. From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis lupis, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul. The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas. Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane's mate and complete the bond between them.
So my friend had been raving about this book and thought I should really delve into the series, I had recently done a cover reveal of the 5th book, yes 5th book so I have a lot of catching up to do. I started reading this book and for the first time in a very long time I could not stop laughing out loud. This story was so interesting and so addicting that I’ve decided to go ahead and read all of them quickly. So you will see a lot of reviews from books in this series.
We meet Jacque and her two best friends Jen and Sally. They are patiently awaiting the arrival of the mysterious exchange student that is moving in next door. Jacque promised her two friends that she will get the dish once he comes out. Sure enough he gets there and she is mesmerized and a little freaked out because she starts hearing voices in her head. When her friends come over she tells them this but they think it’s ok.
Turns out that the new voice in her head is none other than the hottie exchange student himself, Fane, she’s just happy she isn’t crazy. There is an instant connection between the two but he has to tell her things about himself before they can continue on. Seems as if they can’t be apart and she feels it too, he tells her how he is the Prince of Wolves in the largest pack in the world from Romania. He is next in line and with that comes a lot of pressure that’s for sure.
Well their connection is so deep they find out that they are each other’s mate, when grey wolves find their true mate it is for life and a bonding ceremony needs to take place for this to be completed. Until that has taken place any other grey wolf can come and challenge Fane for his mate, which is exactly what happens. Some random wolf from a local pack that no one knew even existed decided to challenge Fane to a death match and the winner gets to be Jacque’s mate, even if they were not meant to be. This is all very barbaric but so unbelievably exciting.
The whole book was very magical (with no magic other than wolves) and just literally laugh out loud loved it. I had people looking at me strangely at some point when I just bust out laughing, I couldn’t help it, the book was that good. It was a very quick and easy read and you were so entertained you could barely notice that the book was almost done, which is always a sad thing. But exciting because I’m on to the next one! If you love wolves and laughing then I strongly suggest you read this series.
