The Wolf’s Shadow (The Lycanthropy Files Book 1) by Cecilia Dominic – Review by Stephanie Nordling

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just want to start by saying that I’m a “series” girl. I always have been, that’s just my jam. Stand alones just don’t do it for me. What can I say? I’m greedy. Haha! I’ve been trying to find my next series to obsess over and I’ve finally found it after a few false starts. I want to continue the journey alongside Dr. Joanie and her pack.
Without spoiling anything, it has a lot of mystery, murder, and of course romance. The story has bite (pun absolutely intended) and keeps me wanting to continue reading, even when I should be doing other things.
Excuse me while I run out and get the next three novels in the Lycanthropy Files series!

The Wolf’s Shadow (The Lycanthropy Files Book 1) by Cecilia Dominic – Review by Beverly Finnie

The Wolf's Shadow (The Lycanthropy Files #1)The Wolf’s Shadow by Cecilia Dominic
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I definitely didn’t understand what I was diving into when I decided to read The Wolf’s Shadow. It’s bizarre but good. I’m used to werewolf romances and mysteries. Definitely a mystery, however I think this is the first time I read a book that shines werewolves in this light. The author brings a whole new aspect to the idea and one can’t help but get sucked in.
Joanie, inheriting her grandfather’s 500 million estate, and ends up starting life over. Almost dying in her lab’s fire and losing her job, why not start a new life elsewhere. With her best friend Lonna in tow they set off to Crystal Pines. Little did they know they were about to get thrown into the world of child kidnappings and the supernatural.
The author takes us on an up and down ride of their investigation. Joanie to find out what happened to her grandfather, and Lonna the missing children. Things are starting to look like the two are connected.
To find out more you’re just going to have to jump in and check it out for yourself!

The Wolf’s Shadow (The Lycanthropy Files Book 1) by Cecilia Dominic – Review by Shannon Fowler

The Wolf's Shadow (The Lycanthropy Files #1)The Wolf’s Shadow by Cecilia Dominic
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really like finding books by new to me authors. Cecilia Dominic is one of those authors. This story has a great story line and is easy to follow even with the questions that arise while Joanie Fisher tries to figure out what happened to her grandfather, her lab and the strange feelings she has about the things happening around her.
The characters in this story are very easy to like, of course except those bad guys, once we discover who they really are. The universe of werewolves isn’t a new one, but this story takes a different look at it.
Since this story was so good, I will definitely read more from this author. Long Shadows is book 2 and I am ready to start reading it and see what happens to Lonna

The Last Cabin Girl
By: Tom Swyers
5*

This book is amazing. I never read books in one day, but I did with this one. I was absolutely unable to put it down. It is one of the first books that addresses the world with COVID and I have to say, if I didn’t know that part of the story was based in reality it would make for an even more chilling thriller.
Josie is the main character. She has moved to a cabin in the woods along the river along with her children. They are hiding from her husband, well her soon to be ex-husband if he will ever sign the paperwork. They are living in a cabin from her childhood. She was 12 when she saw her first body in the river. She swears it was pink. The town will never let her forget it.
Just recently Josie saw another dead body in pink in the river. She is becoming very paranoid just as rumor is spreading about a new flu-like virus that is killing people in China. Her ex is becoming increasingly threatening and violent.
Josie works as a waitress. Her usual Zumba group is the local gossip mill. That’s where she finds out her ex is dating someone fairly seriously. That is also where she first hears of the mysterious app designer. She never expects that he would come into the diner and sweep her off her feet.
Soon, her ex is missing and suspected to be dead and more bodies are turning up. Unfortunately, she becomes a main suspect which is when the real drama starts.
I truly can’t speak enough for how hooked this book had me. Everytime I thought I had figured out what was going to happen next, there would be an unsuspecting turn of events. This definitely had me on the edge of my seat. I love how the new pandemic was intertwined and how it all played into Josie’s paranoia. This book is definitely one that I recommend.

The Wolf’s Shadow (The Lycanthropy Files Book 1) by Cecilia Dominic – Review by Michelle Austin

The Wolf's Shadow (The Lycanthropy Files #1)The Wolf’s Shadow by Cecilia Dominic
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a good 5 star read. Right from the start Joanie feels like nothing can go right for her.Until she gets a letter requesting she come see a lawyer, she isn’t sure what to expect. There she finds out that she has inherited her grandfather’s estate worth millions. She meets her friend later and tells her what has happened. Her friend has gotten a new job to investigate some mysterious disappearances and it happens to be in the same area as her grandfather’s estate. Once they arrive they start to put some pieces together and things get even more mysterious from here.

Will they be able to figure out where these kids are going? What does it have to do with a full moon? What really happened to her grandfather?

Overall I really enjoyed this read. I liked Joanie and her friend. The secondary characters also added a great element to the story. It has been awhile since I have read this genre and I was pulled right back in with this author’s writing. I look forward to reading more from this series and author. 1-click and get started today.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book that I’ve read from Mrs. Cecilia Dominic, and I was not disappointed. This is book one in the Lycanthropy Files Series. This is an amazing book. I was so invested in the book from page 1, and I only stopped reading long enough for me to sleep and work. It did not take me long to finish such book. I highly recommend this book to everyone. The author has a way with her words that you feel effected by everything going on, you are able to feel every emotion and visualize the world they are in. I’m excited to read more from the author in the near future.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! This was a great story!!
It started off a bit slow but picks up about midway through. There is so many twists and turns that kept my interest. There were some evenings, I couldn’t put the book down because I had to know what was next.
It also intrigued me that the story is set in more recent times. Hearing Josie talk about the beginning stages of the pandemic and the fear for her family that came with it was relatable.

This was such an interesting and fun book! I loved the unique take on werewolves and the romance was amazing. This was a great way to start a series and definitely made me want to read the others in the series. I think fans of Nalini Singh would really like this book, as well as the other things Cecilia Dominic writes. 10/10 recommend!

I absolutely love this take on lycans. This book is the first in The Lycanthropy Files series and I can’t wait to dig into the next book! I love the scientific take of this. Jane’s world is turned upside down by a fire at work and losing her job. Then her grandfather leaves her his estate and she goes there to find her footing again only to be entangled in mystery. This intriguing book was full of twists and turns and left me wanting more.
