The Werewolf Queen by Brandi Elledge is book one in the Wheel of Crowns series. I loved this book. It wasn’t like most supernatural books. I loved that this series is set in the southern part of the United States. She wrote the Southern draw perfectly. I read this book in less than 24 hours because I couldn’t put it down. It has 34 chapters so it’s definitely not a short book. I can’t wait to check out what else Brandi Elledge has written.
I give The Werewolf Queen (Wheel of Crowns Book 1) by Brandi Elledge, 4 stars.
Sadie is a high school senior living in a community of witches. The only thing is, she’s a null — no powers at all. Then all of the sudden strangers show up in her town and weird things start happening. People are suddenly out to get her, telling her how powerful she really is. Crazy things start happening, a man who claims he is a werewolf is so hot he’s to die for, and she learns things are not really as it seems. Can she trust this good looking man? Can she help them? Is she really this powerful? Seems like her senior year won’t be as boring as it seems.
This is a young adult novel only because of the age of the characters. But thankfully, it does not include any of those whiny teenagers that tend to plague some YA books. Being that I am far from being a young adult anymore, this is a blessing to me. The characters are fun, real, and great. I hope to see more of them in future books. The story itself is very interesting and pulls you right in. There are twists and turns that keeps you on the edge of your seat too.
Overall, I found this a very entertaining and exciting book to read and I highly recommend it.

The Werewolf Queen is the first book in the Wheel of Crowns Series and its the first book that i have read by this author. I couldn’t put this one down, i devoured it and didn’t want it to end. I enjoyed the main characters and i loved the main male lead. He is the perfect definition of alpha male and i couldn’t get enough. I am looking forward to reading more by this author and i would recommend this to a friend!
The Werewolf Queen is the first book that I have read by this author and it was a fantastic read. I was completely captivated by the original storyline that she had created. The pace and flow of the story was excellent, it made the book easy to read and follow. The rich detail that the author used really made me feel connected with the story and the world that she had built for her characters.
I really liked the characters in the story, Sadie was great and I enjoyed reading about her. I was really rooting for her especially with everything that seemed to be against her.
I thought that this was a great start to the series and I am really looking forward to seeing how it develops!
Readers who enjoy paranormal stories would not be disappointed with this book and I highly recommend it.
The Werewolf Queen (Wheel Of Crowns Book 1) by Brandi Elledge
The Werewolf Queen was such a fun action paced novel. I loved the various paranormal creatures it features. Sadie is the main female character and she has always believed she was born a dud when it comes to magic. This all changes on her 18th birthday and she is thrust into a whole new situation where she becomes a major player in a supernatural war. Camden is the hot hunk who steps in to find her and help train her in using her new powers. The two work hard together while fighting against feelings for each other. I loved their bickering and all of Sadie’s witty comments. This storyline for this novel was easy to follow and very exciting. I can’t wait to read more in this series.

5 out of 5 stars
The Werewolf Queen is the first boo in the Wheel of Crowns series written by Brandi Elledge and it’s the first book that I have read by this author. I loved this book it was amazing especially if you like to read supernatural stories. The characters are well written and the plot was amazing the secondary characters and their quirkiness made the story more enjoyable. I couldn’t even put the book down that’s how intrigued I was.
Sadi is a dud or so she thought until her 18th birthday she comes into her powers and she doesn’t know what is wrong with herself. And then throw in the werewolves, vampires, and demons all turn up to spoil her party, the weirdness really ramps up.
Now she has to leave the people she loves and cares about or they will be in danger so now she has to find somewhere safe. Now the king of the werewolves offer’s her somewhere to hide while she’s learning about her new powers. Now she not only has to worry about demons trying to kill her she has to worry about his psycho witch fiancée from finding new ways to try and kill her and she only escalates when she realizes the king is attractive to sadi.
With all of this she still has to find the key and learn how to use her powers. Can Sadi handle all this change? Can she win this war or is she in over her head? What will happen if and when she finds the key? You will need to read this great book to find out.
I highly recommend this book and as soon as im done writing this review I’m going to start The Queen of Witches…
What an incredible start to what I can only imagine being an incredible suspenseful, fantasy, magical, romantic and sexy read.
I absolutely loved this read from start to finish, it was creative, engaging, thrilling and a story I thoroughly enjoyed. I loved the characters each of them held their own and their stories were told and I enjoyed following their journey in this read. Sadie was a brilliant sassy, feisty, independent woman who knows what she wants. CG was not what you expected as a king, but he made this story even better, I really enjoyed these two characters together.
This was a mentally, visual read that with the descriptive writing I could picture this read in my mind while reading it, I loved this take on the supernatural world and can’t wait to see where the rest of this series takes us. My only issue with this read is, I would have liked a bit more action, but other than that, I loved it!
I can’t wait to see what else is to come from this series, it’s fast-paced and captivating and highly recommend it. I’ll be eagerly awaiting Book 2! But until then do not miss this read.

The Werewolf Queen is the first book in what is shaping up to be my new favorite series. This book has everything I Iove, paranormal adventure with a lot of danger and just the right amount of softness. I don’t know which character I liked more, Sadie, Lil, or the others that I don’t want to spoil. I was instantly enthralled, so much so that I literally could not put it down. I think I read it in four or five hours and I instantly picked up the next one. I laughed, I bit my nails and all because I am so in love with this series that I honestly can’t stop reading them. This book will take you on a thrill ride like no other and all I can say is be prepared for a nonstop read-a-thon.

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.
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.
