Literary Titan Gold Book Award Winner, December 2019
Intentions shape it, emotions feed it, and from the caster’s hands it is set free. To disregard these basic laws of magick is the difference between manifesting a dragonfly or a dragon, a blessing or a curse.
Conceived in anger, bound to the moon, and carried by blood, the five men were cursed for all time. The sixth was an accident, an innocent, and the first ever curse-born.
Back Cover Blurb:
Deegan Volkov is a werewolf—a direct descendant of the first dark soul who’d committed the vile crime for which his ancestor and the other four had been cursed. It was his fate to suffer.
The monster that dwelt inside Deegan had always taken far more than it ever gave. So, when he was faced with yet another impossible choice, Deegan had known no other way. No other path had been open to him. But this last agonizing loss had been too much for his heart to bear, and he’d howled his pain and despair to an uncaring moon never expecting a miracle—or her.
How could Eva Azoulf exist? She was a female werewolf in a world where all the cursed were men and the very last of a bloodline reported to have died out nearly a century ago. She was an impossibility, one that Deegan’s wolf was set on claiming for himself. But the man in Deegan craved more than just her body. To heal his torn and tattered soul, he yearned to find a way to win her heart.
Review: Literary Titan
The Fate of Wolves, by Tarrant Smith, is the second in The Legends of the Pale series. From cover to cover, Smith delivers insanely well-drawn characters and enough moments of levity to keep this paranormal romance moving along at a brisk pace. Never does Smith’s work lack. As the author bounces from one subplot to the next and back, she keeps readers on their toes and deeply involved with each of the main characters and their tragic lives.
I would be remiss if I didn’t address Smith’s opening lines. It’s not often that I rave about the beginning of a book, but in this case it’s a must. From the first sentence, Smith had me hooked.
Anyone who enjoys down-to-earth main characters in their fantasy series will be taken with Deegan and Eva. The entire cast of characters created by Smith is deserving of readers’ adoration for that matter. Humor is a big part of Smith’s writing and adds to the depth of her characters. I highly recommend this book to readers across genres–it’s a must-read.
Review: Readers’ Favorites
Tarrant Smith has written an intriguing book with The Fate of Wolves. I love the mythology and the history of the wolves. Deegan seems like a tortured soul who strives to do good. The dialogue between them was entertaining and well written.
