Title: Silence of the Wolves
Author: Hannah Pole
Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I really loved this cover from far away, but when I got up close I found the models expression rather odd. I had a hard time getting into this book. I thought that the summary sounded great, but I found the first half of the book very slow. Even when the action was picking up I found it to be muted. I think what was missing for me were the small details. I NEED DETAILS!! And the only details I got were " she grabbed his cock", which I could have used with out haha. But in saying that, Silence of the Wolves did eventually pick up at the end of the book. I would continue this series because I do want to find out what happens to the other who went missing.
Tam was a fairly good female lead. I found her to be a kick- ass heroine. But I felt like at the beginning she seemed a lot younger than at the end of the book and that was confusing for me because it seemed like she aged a lot over the course of the book. And it wasn't maturity wise, just like actual age. Leyth made me mad. At the start of the book he was that jock asshole in school, then all of a sudden he would be a nice guy. But if he got pissed off then he would revert back to the sexist douche that he really is. But the at the end he was the sweetest guy ever, like make up your mind already. If I was Tam would have been very leery of him.
This book started off slow but did finally pick up at the end, and it was enough to make me want to continue with the series. I would recommend this book the werewolf lovers but I would warn them about the slow start.
About this author:
I am a born and bred wild child. (Or I like to think so anyway!)
I moved to sunny Folkestone to escape and find my feet as, well whatever I was destined to be! But alas, my short attention span made finding that destiny a little difficult! One day I came across a diary entry that made me laugh so hard; I actually fell off my chair. (Yes, this can happen!)
I decided that the entry was so funny; it needed to be shared with the world! So I started writing, and attempted to turn it into a novel. Though to this day, that novel remains unfinished, it will always be the novel that got me started, and showed me what I was passionate about. Honestly? I have aspired to be everything from a Private Investigator to a Zoo Keeper with my career; my interests change so quickly that I could never stick with one! Writing gives me the freedom to choose; I can be a cold-hearted assassin in love with a poet one day and the secret lesbian lover of a politician the next!
All my life, I have had a strong, unwavering passion for anything supernatural, spiritual and slightly unexplainable, I love the idea that there can be something completely fantastical lurking beneath the confines of normality. So of course, mythical creatures of all shapes and sizes dominate most of my work!
In a nutshell, I am a creative crazy bean, living with my lovely husband and a house full of too many animals! I’ve always secretly wished I were a werewolf of some description, but have come to realise that I will have to settle for writing about them instead! I’m happiest in the sun with my head in a good book!
AllI can say from here is I hope you like what you read!
