Review – Night of the Wolf Moon


Night of the Wolf Moon


New World Shifters #1


Kimberly Loth & Nina Walker


Paranormal Romance


I’m not supposed to be sacrificed to the wolves, that fate belongs to my sister.
As the eldest daughter, she’ll join our village’s claimed girls when she turns eighteen. Together, they will go to the wolf shifter city, never to return.
But a terrible tragedy strikes our family, requiring me to go in her stead.
I never trained for what comes next—a glittering world of beautiful people and pretty dresses, a wolf pack entirely made of men, and a dark underbelly sustaining it all.
In the Carolina pack, breaking the rules equals death and competition rules it all.
Twenty girls.
Five men.
The winners get husbands. The losers go to the mating houses. And as for me? I fall for the wrong man.
I’m soon faced with an impossible choice: fight for survival or fight for love.

The blurb sounds great, but the book sadly disappoints


Wars between humans and the supernatural have wreaked havoc in the world. The shifters now reign supreme and humans have to pay them for protection against the feral lycans.
The buildup of the story and the information we got along the way was good. There was no information dump, we learned along with the main character Poppy.
Scenes and environments were clear and well described.

Character development:

For some reason, the characters just didn’t do it for me, they felt flat. There was no spark, no oomph in what they did nor how they interacted with each other.
Poppy knew what was in store for her if she didn’t succeed, however, it just felt like she didn’t care to even try. Rhyn, I could at least understand up to a certain degree, but Poppy, nope, I just couldn’t get into her story.

Pacing & Flow:

I read the book in one go, though I nearly gave up a few times. But yeah, I sat there, hoping against hope for that one moment where the story would get rolling, where finally things would start to happen.
I ended the book sad and disappointed.

The book itself:

The book was well written with no (noticeable) errors.
It was 310 pages long, spread over 30 chapters and told from Poppy’s point of view.

Final Thoughts:

I hate to say it, but I was pretty disappointed by the book 🙁 It just never got going, or I just couldn’t get into it, take your pick. I read the words but it just missed the oomph 🙁
Will I read the rest of the series? No, I don’t think I will 🙁
