Book review: Winter’s Wolf by Lou Grimes (The Cursed, #1)

. t a t a . l i f e p a g e s | Gifted | YA |

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I was gifted a free e-book copy in exchange for my honest review. I was not expecting how much I loved this story!
It brought back all my feelings and love for the paranormal world. It gives me some “Linger” vibes (Maggie Stiefvater) however it has much more action and the characters are super easy to connect with. Louvette’s relationship with her mother and her best-friend (Cara) is so well portrayed, I found myself giggling with them at their playful jokes and fun times, Cara was definitely my favorite character, I was eager to read more about her.
Also could this book make me anymore hungry? I found myself salivating at how well the author described the delicious meals that Louvette and her mother shared (as a wolf shifter she requires a lot of energy). I loved the romance in this story, it was fluid and easy to fall in love alongside the characters. However at times the turn of events and the culprits seems a bit predictable, the shape-shifter story could have been introduced to Louvette in a more suspenseful way (her seeing a wolf outside her house watching her etc) instead of a question & answer session. I was AMAZED at how well the author described the moments when she is her wolf, I could vividly imagine her mind as a wolf, blurry in the background and focused on instincts. I absolutely loved when she was wolf.

Some Spoilers below! ****

I am very excited to read book 2, I hope it will give more of a background story to Emily Bonesteel as well to Hollows and his motives which I’m super curious about. I am also excited to read more about the pack life, how they behave, will they accept Louvette into their pack? I also hope to find out more about other packs and why they would want to steal her? For marriage? for a more pure blood line? All these questions make me super interested and eager for book 2!
