Review of Howl by Annalise Grey


Nineteen year old Sophie Matthews is a line-walker between two worlds - human and werewolf. She lives around humans but is never truly part of their world. That is, until she is spotted by a hiker.

What should have been a passing glance becomes so much more as Sophie falls for the one thing she is forbidden from ever having: a human mate.

Adding to her stress is newcomer Daniel, the arrogant wolf on Sophie's tail.

Then several humans are killed by a mysterious and dangerous beast within the pack's hunting grounds. The humans begin whispering of wolf-men roaming the forest and the threat of discovery looms heavy around the pack.

Everything is falling apart and Sophie realizes just how little control she has over her future.

Will she risk everything - her heart, her family, and her safety - for a chance to control her own fate?


 Did I mention how much I dig werewolf stories?  This book was no exception.  I like love triangles and this one left me breathless.

Sophie is a character you can relate too.  She falls for a human, which is against the rules.  She has to decide if her heart or her pack is more important.  

Then a sexy werewolf comes to town and professes his love for Sophie.  She doesn't trust him, yet is drawn to him.  Her whole family wants them to mate, but what does Sophie want?

The fighting was epic and the storyline was solid.  I wish the author had dug a little deeper with the characters and explored their personalities more.  I could have used some more sympathy in this book other than Sophie and the love triangle.

The story had action up until the very end.  I was on pins and needles to see what happened.  Alas, I got no such end.  The author left one hell of a cliffhanger and I am still sad about it.  Book #2 is in the works but not finished as of yet.

I highly recommend this New Adult paranormal romance.  I give this book an astounding five glittery stars for being so fabulous!
