Book Review: ‘Lone Wolf Rising’ (Winters Saga Series) by Jami Brumfield

‘Lone Wolf Rising’ is the Book 1 in a new paranormal series by Jami Brumfield. We meet the main character, Rebecca Winters, on the morning after her first night as a werewolf.  From the book blurb/synopsis, we know that Rebecca has made the choice to become a werewolf in order to avenge the people responsible for her parents dying.

As the story begins to take shape we meet some of the other characters close to Rebecca: Her sister Savannah, brother Hunter, her Grandmother who they all live with and her best friend Jacks. Oh yeah, and her internal alter ego aka her Wolf.

Love triangle:
Ok, so a love triangle usually consists of 3 people – the lover and 2 love interests. Well, not so here. Here we have one lover, 2 minds and 2 love interests that both minds can’t agree on LOL. Rebecca is all for cosying up to Lucian ‘Lucky’ Lamont, but the Wolf wants to forge a permanent relationship with Gabriel Black.

Storyline:
We start to learn that something is not quite right when Rebecca’s friend and wolf pack mentor Dianna seems to have vanished. Things escalate and Rebecca ends up in a position she’s nowhere near ready for. There’s several twists that will take you by surprise.

What I liked:
I loved the tug of war for control between Rebecca and her Wolf. Some of the dialogue between the two had me giggling. I felt sorry for Rebecca as she struggles to learn to live with another presence in her mind/head. I’d hate it if something took all control from me like the Wolf sometimes does to Rebecca.

Who would I recommend this book to?
Paranormal readers from the age of 16+.

Would I read the rest of this series?
I was also gifted a copy of the second book, which is Savannah’s story. ‘Lone Wolf Rising’ was a good book, so yes, I would love to read the entire series to see what twists and turns take place in the next couple of books.

Some other reviews compared/likened ‘Lone Wolf Rising’ to the Twilight series. To be honest, it briefly crossed my mind that it was gonna end up in a Team Lucky/Team Gabriel fan following. However, the difference is that it’s not Rebecca that is in love with both, because the Wolf plays a major influential part in the situation.

Make up your own mind though 😉 Grab a copy and read it for yourself 😀
