The Werewolf Queen (Wheel of Crowns#1)
By Brandi Elledge
Rated 5 stars
I have read some previous reviews and I don’t get it. For me this book ROCKED! I loved it all. I talked about it to all my friends. They were shocked that everything i told them happened in one book.
The characters (Even Sadie who is only 18 and i felt acted her age), the story and the humor were all a good fit. Let’s tackle the characters. CG is old (Immortal) and Sadie is barely out of her teenage years. CG has had many years to acclimate and be prepared. Sadie, who thought she was a DUD (meaning a no powers witch) , just came Into her powers and had never met any other creatures before other than witches.Sadie has heart along with her immaturity. She is trying to balance everything that has been heaped upon her in a short amount of time. She has crazy friends and family. That’s to be expected in any family. I loved all the different types of characters we met. From the sexy Vampire to the funny fairy to the lovely new large friend she acquires. Even the Evil characters held true to their form.
The story is different which is good. No cookie cutter stuff here. It’s also full of action for only a 250 page book. There is barely time for these characters to breathe. I literally devoured this book and I don’t really care for “witch” stories. Usually they are too “sneaky” for me. Witches that is. But I do love werewolf stories so I took a chance on this one. I was unprepared to how fast moving and smooth this story was. Were there glitches? Yes. But the more you read the better they are understood. (Again my reason not to like witches). The humor was cute and I felt added to the story. She is a teenager! Aren’t they all snarky? My only issue was the mating ceremony but this isn’t a cookie cutter story so it can be different.
I can really see the author setting up future books. Looks like there might be seven in our future. There is so much intertwining between characters and stories i would recommend starting with this one and going from there. I look forward to reading the next but can’t wait for the Stephens.
