Ok.....holy canoly!!!!!! I freaking loved this book!

The book was fantastic. The pace was perfect. The language of Jen and her friends was realistic and hilarious. The secondary characters were just as fun and interesting, especially Sorin. I want good things for him b/ c he's loyal and has potential to be a yummy guy. And the main characters were fabulous. In truth, there were times when I wanted Jen to be a little more serious, but still, she was funny.

Nooooo ... don't do it! Don't download this book even if it's free, unless you're a paranormal romance fan who loves gushy romances and couldn't care less about good writing. (Seriously, see my Q&A below.)

There's a decent teen paranormal romance novel trying to break through the fanfic writing here but, Houston, we have a problem. Luckily for all of you, I have the solution!

When i first saw this book, i had high expectations but it turns out, this book was a disappointment. On the first few pages i knew this book wasn't going to be good as i expected and turns out i was right. I had also read the summary of Prince of Wolves which also got me into reading this book and thought it would be really good.

Oh My God!!! I don't know where to start with this book. There were so many things wrong with this book. I got about 1/3 of the way through before I had to either stop reading or repeatedly slam my head against a solid brick wall.

1) Loftis is constantley switching POV throughout the book... even within the same paragraph. This SERIOUSLY irritates me. I'm fine with having different POVs but when they are in the same paragraph it is beyond annoying.

I have been wanting to read this book/series for a while now, but it’s really long. I decided to bite the bullet and just do it. I’m so glad I did, it’s was a rich full book with characters that are real, relatable and likable. Definitely a must read in my opinion. Now onto book two.

The book was about werewolfs and it had a great premise - Awesome! The book is free on Amazon - Double Awesome! The characters were annoying... errr, not so awesome.

Do not get scared, they weren't unbearable characters or anything, in fact, in the beginning I liked them a lot, Jaque and her friends were pretty cool and all of them had a unique sense of humor and very creative ways of talking.

Goodreads. I trusted your ratings, and you betrayed me.

Apparently this "novel" is a "newly revised and edited version of Prince of Wolves."

HAH! Good joke! Either Goodreads has a sense of humour... or the term "edited" is used extremely loosely.

This is my explanation why!

In my eyes, Quinn Loftis is a teacher. I wholeheartedly do not believe that anyone else could've given me a clearer lesson, on why we should not judge a book by it's cover.

Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis is the first book in the young adult paranormal fantasy The Grey Wolves series. The series is one that continues on from book to book and would be best enjoyed starting from the beginning and reading in order.

Jacque Pierce is a normal seventeen year old girl that likes hanging out with her best friends and of course cute boys. When Jacque notices she has a new neighbor approaching she can't help but check him out when she sees that it's a good looking boy around

No, no, no!

I was so excited for a Romanian character. And not just any character, but a werewolf. I tried not to cringe at his name, Fane. Quinn Loftis says Fane means prince. I ask her in what language because in Romanian, Fane is short for Stefan (Stephen). And it is mostly used for middle-aged men.

And why is the girl called Jacquelyn? Is she French?
How come she finds it so normal to hear voices? How come her friends just casually accept that? Take Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
I apologise in advance for the ranting that will be included in this review. Hell, the entire review is a rant. Not a good one either.

First, let's get this out of the way. This book is an absolute monstrosity. This book is probably the worst book I have ever read. This book is probably one of the worst books ever written. Books like this should not be allowed to exist. How I felt when I realised I had wasted good minutes of my life reading Prince of Wolves:

As a sixteen year old reading this book, I found it very difficult to connect with the characters of this book who are of similar age. The characterization was all too unrealistic. The unending snarky comments of Jacque made her seem excessive. Her sass was endearing at first, but it got overrated after the first quarter of the book. I also hated the extreme amount of informal and colloquial language used by the three girls. IT WAS OVERRATED. The whole time I was thinking, "Gosh, do we actually ...more
I have to say that I was absolutely delighted when I began to read this book. At the time of purchase I had not heard anything about this book or about Quinn, but the title and cover just caught my eye. Needless to say, I fell in love with the book, the characters, and Quinn Loftis has become one of my most favorite authors. I love Jacque, Jen, and Sally, and the chemistry and humor that flows between them. I found myself laughing out loud numerous times, especially at Jen's snarky remarks. I lo ...more

I definitely flew through this audio!

Prince of Wolves was one of those audios where I lost all track of time. I pushed the play button.. and then realized I was already half-way through it! After it ended, it was a pretty cute book but I did find somethings annoying (like the MC).

In the beginning, I liked Jacque but throughout the book she had these "tantrums". She would call them her 2 year old tantrums.. and I would automatically roll my eyes. Now why is a 17 year old have tantrums.. no fuckin
This is really bad. Listening to this book has been literally painful. This is all stereotypes after stereotypes. After 75% of the book I couldn’t take any more, I had to stop.

The romance is cliché, too ridiculous to stand and over the top silly and cheese. But my biggest problem is that it is superficial. We have here not only instant-attraction, but instant-love too. There are no evidenced justifications for the characters to fell in love, their love is based on fantasy and preset destiny,

Mindy Lou's Book Review
This was a good paranormal high school romance. I liked it, but the heroine and her friends seemed a bit bratty. It's probably more realistic to how teenage girls act, however I prefer the more mature characters. The hero is a 17 year old werewolf and I enjoyed is character. He seemed more mature. He was also pretty protective of the heroine with a few j/p moments. This has a HFN ending so you could stop at book one if you prefer.

OK I loved the story. I really got into it, but the dialogue was really annoying sometimes, and corny. I got so tired of Jacque and her friend's comments. I think it sounds like the characters are trying too hard to be funny. Sarcasm is funny in small doses, but it seemed like every conversation Jacque had to make a sarcastic comment, and she came off sounding kind of snotty. She didn't seem mature enough for Fane. I kept cringing when Fane's father, the ALPHA, was explaining things and Jacque's ...more

I really thought this was going to be a good book, seeing how the summary was so interesting and people have been rating it pretty high. I'm not sure why. The plot had promise. I thought this book was going to have some intense romantic scenes (not as in sex, but as in chemistry) and some real action. Again, I was wrong.

I thought the characters in this book were BEYOND annoying. I didn't care of Jacque. I usually love fiesty characters with a temper and a sarcastic sense of humor. But she was ju

So, I know some people often rate books based on how realistic the characters and/or the dialogue is and this series may seem a bit far-fetched at first glance. However, the dialogue (however true or untrue it may be to how teens communicate) made this book and the series! I was laughing out loud the entire time and I absolutely loved every single exchange between all the characters. I've already read the other two books in this series (I read them all in about 2 days since I enjoyed this one so ...more
Kitty (I solemnly swear that I am up to no good)
Well I began this book because it was recommended to me...and it was free.

However I was unfortunately unable to get past the half way mark, now I really am a very patient reader and have got through some ludicrously cheesy plots/bad writing in the past (ahem Cassandra Clare.) Maybe this book was just not for me...or it got me on the wrong day, or maybe I should have given it another chance? Or maybe at twenty five years of age I am far to old to be reading this boring drivel.

When I saw the description of this book I was excited to read it. I will say I liked the story and it's idea. However, I didn't like the dialogue. It sounded corny, forced, and like something an inexperienced or fanfiction writer would write. I am not insulting fanfiction writers or the author in any sense but to me it sounded a little amateur when it came to how the characters interacted. It sometimes seemed as if they were trying to hard to be funny or sarcastic.

He didn't know why he picked a high school in Coldspring, Texas. Just as Fane got out of his limo, to his host family's house, he heard a voice in his head. A female voice. The only thing that made sense was that he had a mate and his mate was near by. When he looked around he

The book was perfect. The sloppy romance and the drama was slightly disturbing but Quinn Loftis' sense of humor almost covered everything. I laughed every freaking minute!!! Not to mention that Fane and Jacquelyn were awesome, Sally and Jen just made it holy amazing :)
What made me fall in love with POW:
Fane, Fane and Fane. Hottest, yummiest, heartbreaking werewolf. If he wasn't Jacque's true mate I'd have eaten him alive. Yeah, as Jen would have said

I loved this book, it's these kind of books that make me wish I could live in a world where werewolves and other creatures existed, Fane is the perfect example of an awesome caring maybe a little over protective but still awesome boyfriend. I loved Jaqualyns character and her 2 best friends. JEN was hilarious!! All 3 of the girls were. Can't wait to get started on the second book.

Yes, yes, you're wondering how I could give this book a low rating as "2.25" when I say I absolutely love this series, and when I go around recommending this to everyone I cross paths with. But that's just it people I love this "series" not this "book" and if you can get past this book, then this series is LOVE, but really please don't give up on this series just because of this book. please

Okay, back to this book. Now I re-read this for the sole purpose of reviewing this, so here
Hey, Loftis? It's "duct tape", not "duck tape". *facepalm*

How in heaven does this have a 4+ rating?

*falls over laughing*

I'm giving this book two stars instead of the single one it deserves because it lands solidly in "so bad it's good" territory. Bad enough that I kept reading because I enjoyed making fun of it. Probably not a reason why an author wants an extra star for but so be it, she should've written a better book.
