I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Hello all my little vampy readers.  So this book is about Werewolves, be ready for some graphic making out, and some crying.   The Mystic Wolves is the first in the series Mystic Wolves, which nice enough comes in a handy box set which can be found below.

 

Now back to the review of the Mystic Wolves:

The Mystic Wolves starts off simply enough, a pack of werewolves playing football on a sunny day.  They are just your normal everyday teenagers, other than the whole Alpha is betrothed to Darcy, and Darcy’s best friend is Jasmine.  The way it ends makes me want to throw my phone, since I read on my phone.   This is a really good book, but the ending really makes me want to read the next book, or throw it down and swear to never read another.  Since I am a glutton for punishment of course I will read the next one.

There were three things that I really liked about this book:

I like the way that Ms. Boring personified the werewolf. Most times the person is a person and then is a werewolf without much cross over, but Ms. Boring really addressed what it was like to be a werewolf and to have a wolf inside you but still have a human personality.  There are times that these two personalities conflict, yes it is two personalities in one body.

I really liked that Ms. Boring didn’t just pit Vampires against Werewolves but had them work together to save the supernatural community.  This was a nice change of pace from the all out killing that happens between werewolves and vampires.

I also really like the way that Ms. Boring wrote their story, making the main characters that you feel for, even Jasmine who does not play a very large role.  You hurt with them, you laugh with them, and you cry with them.

There is kissing and some almost sex, what? when you are betrothed you can’t just hook up with your intended mate, but you can come as close as possible, that is if that damn second in command doesn’t interrupt and then proceed to state that he will watch the undressing.  For Mason and Darcy to go though what they did, the end really upsets me.  I am all for suspense and twists, but this twist just left my mouth hanging open.
