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.

It’s not easy being the worst vampire ever.

Tandi may have been killed by ghouls, but now she’s a brand new vampire. And she’s determined to be the best.

But determination can’t take her very far when she won’t even kill a deer for its blood. Not to mention she’s not as subservient to her master—the Prince of Vampires—as she should be. Despite him being a dead hot guy, and powerful enough to have broken free of the Queen’s influence.

Little does she know that the Queen of Vampires wants her Prince back, and Tandi’s about to get caught in the middle. Just as well the Prince is unusually protective of her, even if she is trying to hide her developing feelings for him. Because when they’re invited to a wedding, and the Queen will plan Tandi’s death there. And the crown-wearing vamp has several ways to do it.

But Tandi is full of surprises herself.

When a disreputable cat turns up promising to help, together with the gorgeous Prince they hatch a plan. It’s dangerous. Maybe even deadly. But if everything goes just right, they might just have a chance.

Of course, when does anything go just right? Maybe being killed by ghouls wasn’t such a bad thing after all.

The Queen of Witches (Wheel of Crowns Book 2) by Brandi Elledge – Review by Maura Harper

The Queen of Witches (Wheel of Crowns Book 2)The Queen of Witches by Brandi Elledge
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

While this is Book 2 of “Wheel of Crowns” series, i believe THE QUEEN OF WITCHES can be read as a stand alone and still be enjoyed as much as if it’s read in order.

This is a quick and fantastic read that I ripped through between dinner and bedtime. Any review i write will not do this story justice. It has best friends and big brothers, cute boys and new powers and a dude named “Sammy”.

Action packed, this story is full of character and charm (and demons of course) and then pages practically turn themselves.

I absolutely recommend this story!!

The Werewolf Queen (Wheel of Crowns Book 1)The Werewolf Queen by Brandi Elledge
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Werewolf Queen by Brandi Elledge is the first book in the Wheel of Crowns series. Sadie is turning 18 and it isn’t the typical 18th birthday. There are werewolves, vampires, and witches. Not your average birthday at least for a mere mortal. This is a fun start to a series and really enjoyable to read. Sadie is smart, funny, and tough.
I enjoyed the story and the characters. There was a nice flow to the story and I was not sure where the story would ultimately go. I really look forward to reading more from this series in the near future.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book had me completely intrigued from the synopsis alone and the story itself sucked me in. This is the first book I’ve read from this author and she has totally made it on my one-click list!

I love a good paranormal story. The storyline is something I’ve never read. I love original ideas and this one was perfection! Its one of those books that you have to physically slow down while reading it so you can prolong your enjoyment!

The story was action-packed, fast paced, romantic, and everything you would want in a book. There aren’t enough words to even give this book justice. I’m very excited to dive into book 2!

The Werewolf Queen (Wheel of Crowns Book 1)The Werewolf Queen by Brandi Elledge
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Werewolf Queen (Wheel of Crowns Book 1) by Brandi Elledge is a great supernatural paranormal fantasy story that kept me so engrossed and immersed in her carefully woven world. The story is so magical it had me on the edge of my seat through to the end. Brandi has very cleverly written something that completely throws you off track just when you think you have got it worked out. The suspense will keep you on alert and intrigued without letting go. This is a brilliant start to the series that is action packed with werewolves and witches, warlocks and vampires, psychics and demons and so much more. The story is thrilling and fast paced and also has romance and humour, I loved Granny, the best friend and the fairy who each had me howling in laughter.

Sadie comes from a long line of witches, but she has no powers. Whilst getting ready for her 18th birthday, everything changes and her life is turned upside down. It seems everyone either wants her or wants her dead.

This is one brilliant and masterful tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat and your heart rate pulsing. This has to be one of the best if not the best stories I have read this year and Brandi is now one of my favourite authors.

The Queen of Witches (Wheel of Crowns Book 2)The Queen of Witches by Brandi Elledge
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

WOW- Got to say, I am LOVING this series so much! Really, if you love fantasy/paranormal in any of its guises- and you haven’t read this book/series- what are you waiting for?! Click away and dive in, you really won’t regret it!
The Queen of Witches is the second book in the Wheel of Crowns Series by Brandi Elledge. It is addictive reading- a riveting, action-packed paranormal fantasy, with witches, werewolves, warlocks, psychics, soothsayers, vampires, supernatural creatures, magic, fate, missing keys, bloody battles, intensity, drama, choices, changes, chemistry, friendship, different factions, hidden agendas, and much, much more.
Charlize Galloway (Charli) has begun to think that there is something seriously wrong with her, because ever since she turned 18, strange things have been happening and she can’t work out why. Then things take an even stranger, but sexy turn, when two gorgeous strangers arrive in town- both vying for her attention. One promises to help her discover ‘who’ she really is and to teach her about the unusual things that seem to happen around her. The other needs her help finding something very important. But danger isn’t very far away, and soon Charli will need to choose who she will place her trust in. There is quite a lot riding on her decision. Who can she trust? What will she choose? And will it be the right decision?
OMG! Where do I even begin to do this book the justice it deserves! It is so funny, emotive, exciting, fast-paced, intense, touching, romantic, and just plain incredible. The story is told from Charlie’s perspective, which I loved- but I really wanted to hear from Jameson too- especially after meeting him briefly in book#1 and being so intrigued by him.
Ms. Elledge is a gifted storyteller and excels at original, and intricately detailed world building- bringing the whole story to life. She’s a masterful storyteller, that’s for sure!!
Without a doubt, one of my favourite series, ever!!
Book three is set to be even better!!

Bravo, and thank you Ms. Elledge!

The Werewolf Queen (Wheel of Crowns Book 1)The Werewolf Queen by Brandi Elledge
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This new age supernatural story flows from the very first page until the very last. It’s a story that has humor, self-actualization, great world building, The story has Witches, Mind Readers & Healers, demons, ghouls, vampires and were-creatures, a cute troll, cute boys and all that comes in between.

The story is well plotted and while some of the dialogue is a little (I hate to use the word annoying) teenage girl-ish hehe. The female protagonist is “different” than the others and must at a different pace because of it “all good things come in time”. She and her best friend are Yin & Yang and it is my hope that every teenage girl has a “Jo” in their life.

This is one of those books that I am clearly not the demographic for but I found it super enjoyable. It has humor (“She was like a case of gonorrhea. She kept flaring up when you least expected her”) and emotion and all around great things. This did not feel like a story that had a lot of words as filler. I could go on and on about this story but then I’d just be telling you the whole storyline and you wouldn’t have to read the enjoyable book for yourself. So I will just say:
It is a fast read that I was unable to put down until I was finished and I’m super glad that I have the next book in the series downloaded.

This was a solid 5 star read for me.

5-stars

The Werewolf Queen is an incredible paranormal story that I highly enjoyed from the very beginning until the very end. Brandi wrote with so much detail that I could easily picture everything playing out in my mind and I was able to feel so invested and connected with these characters.

This storyline flowed so seamlessly, and I loved the originality of it. It was action-packed, intense, addicting, romantic and just pure perfection. I loved everything about this book.

I can’t wait to continue this series and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for their next paranormal read!

The Queen of Witches (Wheel of Crowns Book 2)
By: Brandi Elledge
5 out of 5 stars

The story The Queen of Witches (Wheel of Crowns Book 2) by Brandi Elledge is a wonderful fantasy book that I loved reading. It is a story that pulls you in from the beginning and I found myself not wanting to put it down. It is a story that has action, danger, the paranormal, and romance. I loved reading about the character of Charlie. She is intelligent, beautiful, and stubborn. She is a young woman that since she turned 18 has had strange things happening around her. Who are the two handsome guys that have shown up looking for her? There are revelations and Charlie finds out she is a witch. Danger follows her as she has made the Prince of Hell mad and he is coming for her. Will Charlie be able to master her magic to defeat him? Will she find help along the way? Read this book to find out. This is a story that had me turning pages wondering what was going to happen next. Charlie is a character that I couldn’t help but care about and root for her to succeed in all that she does. I also enjoyed reading about many of the additional characters. There are those who are helpful to Charlie and I enjoyed the bantering/interactions that occur between them. Then there are those who have evil plans and intentions. Will they be defeated? Don’t miss out on a wonderful story which is entertaining and fun to read. The book is the second in a series that can be read in any order. I am looking forward to reading the next one.
