I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
Intense battles, thrilling hunts and intimate encounters are all part of daily life for a newly turned Irish werewolf.
Under the skin of our reality is a world of monsters and magic, a world thrust upon Ciaran Connolly when he became Ireland’s newest werewolf.
Witches want his body and hunters want his hide, but all Ciaran wants is to pass his exams before the next full moon.
Set in contemporary Ireland, the first book in the Diary of the Wolf series is just the start of an epic journey that will see Ciaran Connolly tested to the very limits of a werewolf and beyond.
What did I think?
From the first few pages of this book, I was instantly absorbed in to the diary of the wolf. Whelan has done an incredible job with describing the transformation of human to wolf, it was descriptive and thorough.
Usually paranormal and supernatural books don’t really hold my attention all that well. It seems that Whelan has managed to keep me focused and it was nice to read something that had a little something to offer on every single page of the book, Whelan kept the Diary of the Wolf on a very steady pace and didn’t allow me to get bored at any point.
I did find that while the concept of the book was brilliant, it did lack a little of a ‘solid’ storyline. Yes, there’s the love story and the wolf hunt but it just felt a little ‘samey’ for me. I also felt like one of the characters could have been built upon massively. The only reason why it’s a four star review!
Join me tomorrow to read my review on A Tale of Hunters – the novella in between books one and two of the Diary of the Wolf series.
