Keeper Books

Ronda Thompson's Wulf series is amazing.

This historical werewolf series started with The Dark One, which came out last November. It came to me as an ARC for review from St. Martin's. I couldn't put it down. It was so riveting, the characters, the story line, the writing style - everything about it sucked me in and held me until the story was done. In my review for Romance Divas, I gave it 5 kisses, a rating I rarely give out.

This Saturday, two wonderful things happened. 1.) The ARC for The Untamed One showed up (actual release is May) and 2.) I found a large blurb from my review for The Dark One on the inside front page! I was thrilled. I started reading immediately.

This second book did not disappoint. In my opinion, it may even be better than its predecessor. At the very least, it is equal. I haven't written the review yet but when I do, The Untamed One will also be getting 5 kisses.

Ronda's writing is lush and evocative. Her characters leap off the page. These books are keepers, books I will read again. If you haven't read them yet, you need to. They are phenomenal!

The last book in the series, The Cursed One, comes out in December this year. I CANNOT WAIT!

    I love keeper books :)

  2. I have first one, The Dark One. It was pretty good. I sometimes felt like strangling the heroine for being so dumb though. I felt like she should have learned her lessons and be smarter about it. I'm looking forward to the second installment.

  3. I will wholeheartedly concur! I love Ronda. She's super sweet and I can't wait to read her ARC, even though I was suppose to get it and do the review. Kristen just beat me to it by a few days! But I still love ya anyway!

  4. So this series is a print serious by St. Martin's Press, correct? I'll have to watch for those.

  5. I loved The Dark One. I can't wait for the next two. The cover's are awesome.
