They are the Arctic Brotherhood.

They are deadly fighters, fierce protectors and loyal mates.

Elliott Wilder is a mild mannered Alaskan college professor. Wilder craves the things most people find boring. Seclusion. Monotony. Anonymity. But what Wilder craves most of all is the thing he can’t have… memory loss. Four hundred years ago, Wilder and the other members of the Arct

Kate's Corner

Elliott Wilder has been living a life of solitude. He is the eccentric, a hot loner, grumpy professor at the university. Since that one incident four hundred years ago he has been suffering with PTSD ever since. He doesn’t want to get involved with anything violent anymore but an arch nemesis of his is back and it looks like he has no choice. An old friend pays him a visit to inform him of what is at stake. Elliott doesn’t take to well to it.

This was a good start to an interesting series. But first.....let's just admire that cover, shall we...sigh

Elliott Wilder, never referred to as Elliott, is an Arcic Wolf. He's hot as sin, with that amazing body and dreamy eyes and is old as hell. Yep, he's well over four hundred years old. Thank goodness he doesn't actually age. Four hundred years ago, Wilder was directly involved in taking down a Siberian Wolf who was out to destroy the Arctic race. Now, it seems as though

***ARC kindly provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review***

If you are looking for your typical paranormal romance, with the emphasis on romance, this story might not be for you. It definitely wasn’t what I expected. Looking at the cover, and reading the blurb I thought this will be a hot read with some shifter steamy love making, alpha male, you know the usual stuff.

Ice Wolf is more about the background story, Norse mythology to be exact. There is definitely more

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! I bought this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I have already bought the next book too!

The cover is great because it is my favorite style having both beasts on the cover!

( am always up for a good werewolf romance so when I got the chance to read this book recently, I was totally on board with it. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, there’s just so many werewolf romances to be had out there, so one has to really stand out for me to like it. This one had a different premise and world building, so it had that going for it from the get go. That being said, it did have a problem.

Arctic werewolves could only shift or be killed during the light of the midnight son. The midnight son called to the arctic werewolves like the moon called to other werewolves. Gunner was the alpha of the arctic werewolves and Santin of the Siberian werewolves was the alpha and enemy of the Arctic wolves. Santin went after Gunner with a silver knife but Elliott jumped on his back and Gunner’s hand was the only thing affected. Elliott Wilder was a professor at the University of Alaska.

Ice Wolf by Jane Godman is the 1st book in her Arctic Brotherhood series. This is a shifter series, with a new ancient species of Arctic werewolves, who are part of the 7 members of the Brotherhood of the Midnight Sun. The story begins 400 hundred years earlier, when the Siberian wolves were about to destroy the Arctic wolves; but at the last minute, the newest member of the Arctic Brotherhood managed to save his leader. Switch to the present time, and we meet Elliot Wilder, a professor who is a ...more

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy:

ICE WOLF suffers from having both too much information and not enough. It’s rare to want a book to cut back on the world building and just focus on the love story. Elliott Wilder is a member of the Arctic Brotherhood, an elite fighting team with only seven members. He’s tried to completely remove himself from the werewolf lifestyle. But when an old adversary escapes from prison, both he and newcomer Jenny Piper join the Brotherhood to stop the threat.

Yea I have a thing about supernatural or paranormal books … to me they are thrilling and entertaining. Whether they are horror type or not, they take you out of this world and into another.

This begins with Gunner, the once leader of the “Brotherhood of the Midnight Sun,” trying to pull Elliott Wilder back into the the brotherhood for another fight. But Elliot wants the seclusion & anonymity he has being a college professor.

Ice Wolf is the first installment of the Arctic Brotherhood series by Jane Godman.

Elliot Wilder is part of an ancient and unique breed of shape-shifters wolfs, but he doesn’t like living in a pack. Instead he finds calm and happiness in his own little world when he’s not teaching at the University of Alaska. For over a hundred years, Elliot has witnessed events that he’s rather forget, but with his traits he’ll never be able too. But his world is about to grow in population when he meets Jenny.

I freely admit that Shifter Romance has become my first love in the reading world. It’s always a delight to me, personally, when I discover a new author in the genre, especially when her slant on the lore of shifters has such a unique touch to it. While I devoured both Ice Wolf and Shadow Wolf, I am certainly looking forward to more in this series, and from it’s author Jane Goodman.

Received an ARC from Netgalley.

There are a lot of plot holes in this story. Also, the action/fight scenes have a lot of build-up, but then are anticlimactic. It results in a disappointing feeling. And, why are there 2 evil villains to fight and destroy? There's so much build-up around Santin and then the fight comes and it's just... oh. Okay. That was pointless. And then the next bad guy gets all this build up and then it's all.... okay, really? They just defeated the most evil and powerful wer

I love werewolf stories and this was a delightful new take on the theme. I loved the brotherhood. Their loyalty to each other and their friendship made this story stand out for me. The characters were well-rounded, the story strong and I enjoyed the mix of werewolf lore, contemporary romance and Norse legend.

Thrilled to have found a new-to-me author and a new series.

An interesting concept of shifter wolves. I love how Jane Goodman wrapped her novels into the Nordic mythology history and the concept of Arctic Werewolves was also interesting. A bit of the logic behind Arctic wolves was baffling, but I think mostly because I've never heard of the concept of the midnight sun. I did really like Elliot and Jenny even though Jenny's character was bit underdeveloped and rushed. Elliot and the Brotherhood seemed to be the driving focus of the novel and were excellen ...more

A different take on the wolf shifter genre. I was quite impressed with this book and I'm getting ready to start the second book. I liked Wilder a lot. To see his growth from loner wolf who didn't seem so sure of himself to a pretty decent alpha male was an exciting journey. I think it was Jenny believing in him to bring it out of him. Really happy with this book.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
I gave this three stars because it is so short. Also because the world-building left things out. After all, the Artic Brotherhood are hundreds of years old. How do they stay hidden from discovery?

Other than that, I enjoyed it. Enjoyable characters, interesting plot, and I do love shape-shifters.

This is a Steamy Wolf Shifters Fantasy Romantic Suspense.

Steamy: there are a lot of great sex scenes in this book.

Fantasy: over-the-top unrealistic, save the world kind of story.

Wolf Shifters: even though we didn't see them all in action, the author created a variety of wolf shifters, with assorted skills and weaknesses - interesting.

Rom Susp: lots of suspense, not many places to curl up and read in peace; no sirree; it's packed wit

Ice Wolf is the first book I have read by Jane Godman. The exciting beginning hooked me into the story even though I figured it would switch to the present soon. It is a clear good versus evil kind of story with a few twists thrown in for good measure. The idea of wolf shifters being from different areas with their different traits and physical appearances is not original but Ms. Godman gave this a fresh approach which I enjoyed.
