How the Wolf Lost Her Heart
☆☆☆☆4 WOLFY STARS!☆☆☆☆
How The Wolf Lost Her Heart is a dystopian adventure novel set in the future.I liked the future part because I haven't read a lot of books like that lately.And this one was quite refreshing.
I did like the plot.It was somehow unique from other dystopians out there.The thug band was a great great idea,and also the story sets place in London,which is one of my favorite cities of the world.
I also enjoyed the changing into spirit animal thing.Actually I haven't heard or read a...more
There are several things I liked about the book. The cover being the first- it’s very captivating, don’t you think? Another is the setting/world building, which is a futuristic, chaotic London sometime in the year 2217. Quite another are the characters who are no ordinary humans- they’re morphers! SKYE morphs into a…
…while Raphael morphs into a…
But wait, there is one more thing that really caught my attention. The Thugs or a group of really bad people who infest the futuris ...more
(I received a free copy of this book via the author in exchange for a review)
Honestly, I didn't really know what to expect coming into this book. I've actually never even heard of this book before I was sent a copy of it. And, I'm REALLY glad that Sarah sent me a copy. How the Wolf Lost Her Heart DEFINITELY went past my expectations. This was a really fun and enjoyable read for me and it was quite a page turner. Every c ...more
It's been a while since I've read a YA to be honest, but I enjoyed it so much, that I didn't even notice what type of book it was until I finished it!
I want to thank Sarah for giving me the opportunity to read her book & I want to advise people who like reading YA dystopian novels to give her novel a try, because it's definitely worth it. :)
First of all, I'd like to say that it was a nice, sweet and quite entertaining read! I liked reading about a dystopian England, it was a nice &am ...more
“Her heart pounded irrepressibly as she climbed into bed and realised without a shadow of a doubt, that she had fallen clean in love with him.”
This was an interesting YA paranormal romance featuring ‘Morphers’.
Skye and Raphael were both good characters, and both had lost people in their lives which had impacted greatly on them. Skye did come across as a bit standoffish, and she ...more
I never read a book about Morphers before so this was quite an interesting read for me. I thought the author did a good job in creating this new dystopian world and I really liked the strong female friendship portrayed throughout the story. However, the characters lacked development for me and the writting seemed very redundant at times which is why I ultimately gave it 3 stars. The book ended on a cliff hanger al ...more
Skye and Raphael are special characters that come together by chance but have so much more in common than they ever could have imagined.
Set in the backdrop of a very dangerous futuristic city (London) full of gangs and violence and you truly have an interesting read ...more
•Pity. This book is not just for me.
The things I like:
•the base story about shifting into an animal.. Well if I can shift into one, I'll be a worm. Atleast I can stay and eat books all day.. (ha-ha.Lame joke.)
•The twins. Reminds me of my favorite twins Jigger and Trigger (Filipino Pocketbook heroes)
•the Filipino foods. Halo-halo and rice cakes are my favorites...
The rest is okay (except the heroine.. don't make me start with her)but not exactly the ...more
Awwwww! Okay, I'm just going to say it took me a heck of a long time to finish this. Mainly because of:
1. I have cruddy wifi that's as reliable as me when I promise to go to bed early (which I'm sure you can guess is not....)
2. I feel as if some parts dragged on, and others I wanted more of! :( there were character action scenes with fighting that could have held more inner dispute, but the romance was a little draggy (I'm only 60-70% of ...more

"Oh, ah," said Skye. "I, erm, bought them."
"Bought them? Why?"
"Oh, just felt like a change," said Skye in a would-be cheery voice.
"Felt like a change? Oh Skye... Please tell me this isn't a
For me this book had a bit of a rough start but it definitely pulled through. I think there could have been a bit ...more
I'm not really sure what to rate it, to be honest. It was hard to put down, but I'm not sure I was really in love with it. I liked it, I'll definitely read the next one, it was all a very interesting concept...I've not dealt with too many shifter stories, and it definitely left me wanting. It was a short and sweet story. The main characters, and their families were likeable. The people you weren't supposed to ...more

Brownlee truly has a gift with words, and created a captivating original novel. I honestly thought I had read it all when it came to the paranormal genre, but I was wrong.
The world building in the novel was phenomenal and truly made you feel like you were living in Skye's world, and what a fascinating world it was. I also loved that for once the morphing/were world was not based on being bitten or a hereditary trait, but resulted from ...more
Whoa, where to begin? This book was quite different from anything that I've read - which is wonderful! It is an amazingly original story that I absolutely devoured.
Skye is an eighteen year old girl who is a morpher - someone who can transform into an animal. She is a strong-willed young women who values her independence. Skye doesn't flaunt the fact that she is a morpher, she has experienced negative reactions from her gift and also h ...more
This book could be a fine read but there are some things that I can’t ignore. One of them is the word building. The situation the author describes is rather chaotic. There is no mention of a government but there is a police and a university… And what’s with the bubble breaks? That doesn’t make any sense! Skye is really annoying character. She is angry ...more

A full series review of this book, and the sequel will be on my blog in the upcoming week.

In the year 2012, an experiment was done on 42 people giving them the ability to shift into their spirit animal at will. Some of the subject were hunted down by the government but others survived and passed down their morphing genes to their children. How The Wolf Lost Her Heart is set in a dystopian London in the year 2217 . The city is overrun with thugs and anarchy rules t ...more
For the most part, I enjoyed this title. The author introduces a new spin to the YA dystopian genre and for that I am very pleased. Because so many books are being written in this genre nowadays, it's hard to be unique. Brownlee did a wonderful job of bringing something fresh to the table.
This is the story of Skye, a young woman who lives in the futuristic London. But there's something special about Skye. She can morph into a wolf. She spends her days working and spending time with her ...more
Let me start off by saying that I LOOOVVEEE wolves! They are my favorite animal! So yes, reading this was an extreme treat for me.
The story follows Skye, who can transform into a white wolf, and Raphael, who can transform into a tiger.
There is obvious tension and chemistry between them, but Skye knows that there's a problem. He is way out of her league. Raphael is gorgeous, rich and popular. Hardly anyone knows who Skye is, let alone that she can morph into an animal at wi ...more
I really wanted to love this book. It has a lot of things I like in a book: shapeshifters, a dystopian society, romance. It has plenty of potential but in my opinion it also has a few flaws. There needs to be more world building. When I read a book I like to get immersed in the world that I’m reading about. I couldn’t do that here. How did this world get to be a dystopian society? How exactly does the government work? More backstory on the world and the ...more
I have to admit, I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. I have read many wolf books, and more or less they contain the same plot. Boy! was I ever glad to be disappointed. This book was nothing like I expected it to be. I loved the sizzling chemistry between Raphael and Skye and their growing romance. Some of the events that take place by the thugs is gruesome and despicable, hard to imagine that humans are even capable of such enormit ...more
