The Physic (Children of the Dire Wolf Book 1)
Well my Gentle Readers, this is the hardest decision I have made to date on rating a book I reviewed. I loved the story, I loved the characters. They were real and pulled at my heartstrings. Sadly it needed another once over as I found some rather jarring proofreading errors that dropped me out of the story the author so delicately wove. This would normally make me bump this down to a 4, or maybe even a 3 if the errors were severe enough. However, I was able to quickly overcome these as I needed to get back into this story and in this day and age, an e-book can be quickly updated. Because of these two reasons, I felt I still had to bump this up to a 5 star review.
Taisho is a werewolf in hiding at a church when all manner of hell breaks loose in her hometown of Maraborg. Unknown to most, the villain is far worse than some criminal or evil mastermind bent on world domination. This is where the author shows great genius in crafting a villain who has human level intelligence, but is truly a force of nature. How does one stop something like this? A being with one sole purpose: to convert the entire world into mindless slaves bent to “his?”/”its?” complete command.
The question becomes, how does one stop a force of nature like this? Taisho learns she is the key to both sides of this war and must fight for not only her life, but the lives of everyone she ever comes to care about in both the human and werewolf worlds.
As the world seems to fall apart at the seams, Taisho fights to maintain control of her destiny, learning her place in the werewolf world. Love, a scarce commodity in her childhood, comes to her in the form of another werewolf. This gives her immeasurable strength of will to continue fighting when all seems lost.
Will Taisho and her allies be able to save the world from the abominations running rampant? Will she be able to reconcile her lineage and hold onto the love she has found in a world gone mad? Find out by taking a giant bite out of this read.
