In some ways this book reminded me of Lord of the Rings and a small touch of Harry Potter (two of my all time favorites) due to some of the characters, context and situations, but much it is more adult in context and more shifter based. There were characters that varied from shifter to witch, Sorcerer to a god-like monster. It was very original, exciting and at some parts cringe worthy. Any paranormal, romance and fantasy lover will enjoy escaping with Curse of the Wolf :)

I think I may have just found a new favourite author, and at the very least I found a new line of books that I'll be visiting for their titles from now on. I was so surprised by how much I ended up enjoying Curse of the Wolf because lately I just haven't been able to get into the paranormal genre which is a shame since it's one of my favourite genres to read.

However, since I read Gloriana and Alexander's story I think that my dry spell in the genre is over. I really enjoyed the story that Danic

From the start I was taken with Ms. Winters vivid imagery and imaginative characters. Glorianna is a veela, a demi-goddess whose kind are driven by their sexual desires with cursed results. Anyone who loves them dies. She's also a shape-shifter who can tak the form of a wolf. She risked suffering the curse by falling in love. During the course of their relationship, Baldur, her lover, gives her a powerful ring that makes the wearer immortal. Vulnerable without the ring, he's murdered. She blames ...more

A blending of Norse mythology and Werewolves creates the background for this story. Veela Gloriana is cursed to never have love. Any man she loves is cursed to die a tragic and horrible death, so she has spent centuries avoiding love until she met Baldur and of course he dies tragically. This book opens with her trying to avenge his death.

Werewolf Alex is hunting Gloriana for the ring of eternal life, but when he comes upon Gloriana in a pit of Gorgon blood poisoned spikes he throws away every

This writer has it going on! She is very clever, witty and her work is so enjoyable. I would stop reading this review right now and get to reading Danica's story. Her characters are strong, her settings are beautiful and her story--very original. I can't wait for the next one in the series.

Curse of the Wolf was about this Veela, Gloriana, who has a curse set down on her... One that has already hurt someone very much. When she meets Alex, the werewolf, she's afraid of what might happen to him as she starts to feel something. Meanwhile, she's still seeking revenge for the death of her previous lover and trying to keep safe. She's got a ton going on and the story follows her journey.

I thought this story was very different and very good! The beginning, while it drew me in with the sto

My Thoughts:
Truly enjoyed this story. I love the characters. The story is entertaining and engaging. The plot is clever and intriguing. A well written tale of revenge, love and the desire to be more than what others see you as.
The author has created unique characters, wonderful characters that a reader can connect with on a personal level and fully invest in. She has set them in a world unlike your average paranormal read. She is imaginative and skilled enough to develop a story that grabs th

A Villa for a heroine... ? Already a unique concept, adding to the fun and intrigue of reading Curse of the Wolf. As you get to know Gloriana, who is cursed and cannot love a mortal man without dooming him, you feel her loneliness, her sense of displacement and need. This paranormal romance is unique in concept and types of characters, all interesting, all good, but also flawed. There is danger and the possibility but no guarantee for love in this original romance teeming with atmosphere and mys ...more

Curse of the Wolf is a page turner. When I was done reading I wanted a sequel. It was like watching a movie because of the unusual characters along with suspenseful twists and turns make this a incredible story.
