Book Review -- Winter Wolf by RJ Blain

Winter WolfWinter Wolf by R.J. Blain
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A digital copy of this book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

The second installment in the Witch and Wolf series, Winter Wolf is an enjoyably multi-genre read. Having not read the first book in the series, Inquisitor, I was initially apprehensive about how well I would be able to follow this book. I ended up thoroughly loving it. The book was thoroughly gripping and kept my interest throughout.

The tale revolves around Nicole - a wizard, but a secretive and reluctant one at that. She has the power to control electricity. But she will be in massive and fatal trouble if the Inquisition finds out her secret.

The protagonist of Winter Wolf is Nicole, who's hiding a secret - she's a wizard. That means she can control electricity, and that if the Inquisition finds out who she is, she'll be executed. Struggling to make ends meet, she takes to acting. When a young guy dies right in her vicinity, she sets about finding what killed the man, and discovers that it's a deadly disease that could end up wiping out her entire race. She has the choice of either using her powers and facing the wrath of the Inquisition, or risk savaging the safety of her whole race.

It had multiple layers within one plot, all well handled. Nicole's predicament, the lurking danger and the action are all enjoyable. I liked the characterisation of Nicole and the internal conflicts that come with her. I am now keen on reading the first book, Inquisitor.

I would definitely recommend this book to lovers of paranormal adventure.

My rating for this book: 4 stars
