Wolf Girl


Wolf Girl #1


Leia Stone


Paranormal Romance


When my parents were banished from Wolf City before I was born, I thought there was no way I would ever live in a pack again. Cuffed, with my shifter magic bound, I was forced to go to school with witches in order to keep my true nature from coming out.
Then I met him.
Sawyer Hudson.
The Alpha’s son was visiting Delphi Witches’ College and spotted me. He took one look at me, and an hour later, I was being pulled out of school, taken into Wolf City and leaving my parents and everything I knew behind.
It’s the Alpha’s son’s selection year, the year he must pick a mate, and every female aged 18-22 must be in attendance.
I’ve landed myself in the middle of Werewolf Bachelor, and just when I think I’ve got a handle on things, Sawyer releases my cuffs, unbinds my magic, and sees what I really am.
The problem is, I don’t know what this creature is that I transform into. It’s not an ordinary werewolf, that’s for damn sure.


5stars rating

In several of the many authors’ groups I’m in, they mentioned book 2 of this series that came out a few days ago, and I was like… huh… many people are so hyped about this, I’m just going to grab the sample and see what all the fuss is about.
Yeeeeeaaaaah… that, of course, turned into reading the whole book in one go 😀


A paranormal romance set in a world where all supes live in their own area and where only the banished live amongst different races. I think we’ve met all the different races in this instalment, though there could always be more in the next books to come. There wasn’t any information dump either, we learned about the world and all the factions as Demi encountered them or revealed information about her past.
We moved around a fair bit, and there were several scenes I’m going to guess were pretty tricky/fun for the author to write (not going to spoil it, but you’ll know when you get there). That said, all of the scenes and environments were well described and detailed enough to stay fully immersed in the story.

Character development:

Demi had only known banishment for a crime her parents committed before she was born and that she knew nothing about. Cuffed with magical bindings she couldn’t even shift or let her wolf free. Add to that the years of bullying for being the only wolf on campus and you’d think that would have made her a tad cranky. But no, while she does have some anger management issues, she somehow managed to remain a good person. When she met Sawyer, everything she knew fell away leaving her uncertain of herself and of her place.
We get to know a lot about her history, her feelings and her fears and dreams. But don’t think that because she isn’t used to interacting with other wolves that she is a damsel in distress!
Sawyer *happy sigh*… that’s kinda all I want to write about him 😉 haha. He knows what he wants and leaves no stone unturned to get it. But he’s not without his own darkness and fears.
I can’t wait to read more about Demi’s and Sawyer’s interaction together!!
But seriously, don’t forget about Sage! She is so freaking awesome! I wish I had someone like her while I was studying (though I’d probably not have been studying very much haha).
All characters felt real and believable. I mean, there was drama, angst, laughter, (a lot of) romance and through it all, a sense of belonging. Loved it!

Pacing & Flow:

As I’ve said earlier, I read it in one go, I just kept on going 😀
It read super smooth and didn’t feel rushed at all. There was a lot of action but also more than enough conversation to keep it balanced.

The book itself:

The book itself was well written with only a few tiny errors here and there (it didn’t bother me at all, so I paid it no mind). It has sex described in it (if that is important to you). Also, a fair warning that some words are being used that might trigger certain persons. I would advise you to read the sample as the author addresses it in the foreword.
The book is 302 pages long, spread over 16 chapters and told from Demi’s point of view.

Final Thoughts:

I loved it, I mean, half of the book had me giggling and swooning and my appreciation for the cast only grew when the going got tough.
Am I going to read the second instalment? Is that even a question? 😀 😀
Of course I am! Just not right now, since I’m reading my Bookshelf Bingo pick of the week 😉
For all those who love shifter romances, pick this one up!!!
