2019 Realm Awards Finalist - Young Adult Category.

One prince. Two brothers. Three companions to prevent a sorcerer from destroying the faeries.

Prince Killian has always known he’s different. It’d be impossible to miss the whispers of an age-old family curse, to ignore the call of the wolves on his birthnight and the barely-veiled hostility from his people. His family ins

Claire M. Banschbach's best book yet.

This book is:
-A brother story
-Lots of fun
-Often amusing
-Full of Wolves
-An adventure
-Sprinkled with snark
-Not a romance

Our heroes are:

Killian. The wolf prince. Seventeen. Reclusive. Believed to be cursed. Totally lovable. Nice. Epic.

Lars. Killian's big brother. Twenty. Irresponsible. Crown prince. Loves his brother. Protective. Fun. Lovable.

Rose. An aspiring apprentice Ranger. Eighteen or nineteen. On a quest to find her father. Country accent. Super lovable.
Since I first heard about this book as a work-in-progress, I’ve been in love with the concept and eagerly awaiting its release. Even more so knowing Claire Banschbach as the author who ripped out my heart with her Rise of Aredor series. (I think most readers understand the love-hate relationship between them and books that have effectively crushed your soul and left you heartbroken. And the mistrust of reading a new book by that same author.) So, seeing an ARC in my inbox last week cued actual f ...more
Adela's Curse, Book 1 of The Faeries of Myrnius, was excellent, but this book kicked things up a notch. Unlike most fantasies featuring curses and wolves, this story is NOT a typical werewolf tale. In fact, there are barely any werewolf elements at all (some near the end, but I won't spoil how those come into play). Instead, what we have here is the story of a prince cursed permanently into the form of an actual wolf, rather than a wolf-man shapeshifter. The reasons for and the mechanics of the ...more

A sweet sequel to Adela's Curse. The new characters had a good sense of humor and fun banter, the action was well-paced and kept the story flowing, and the villain was pleasingly dastardly in his evil plot. Suitable for all ages (though there is some violence). I have to say my favorite part was when the faeries made an appearance and joined in the quest, and I do hope we see more of them in book 3.

I received a free ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.

Fun story! The characters were all quite loveable and I truly enjoyed this fresh and original adventure. I love the way Banschbach desribes Killian, he seems so animated when I imagine him. This story was well crafted.

Recommends it for: oh, anybody
Marvelous tome—I mean, it doesn't quite fit with the connotation generally associated with the word, tome, but I wanted to say tome, and what more defense do I need, eh? Simply marvelous, this book, by the way.

It has all the good stuff: excellent plot and setting, fine composition and style, exemplary characters, and first-rate magic. And it has to do with wolves, you might say, so there you go! This equals that, as perhaps said somebody upon waking on Saturday last. Where this is that rot I wro

Claire Banschbach is hands down one of my favorite fantasy authors. Her stories are full of heart, originality, adventure, and lots of feels.

From start to finish this was a delightful adventure! The brother relationship between Killian and Lars is so heartwarming. Rose makes an excellent companion for the brothers as they set out to break Killian's curse. She's bold and stubborn, but also insecure and vulnerable. Her strengths and her weaknesses seemed very realistic.

The world the author has c

This was such a cute story! I kept telling myself I was going to stop at the end of the chapter...and then not stopping. The brotherly dynamic between Killian and Lars was adorable, especially in light of Killian's transformation. And bonus points for Felix, because grumpy faeries. <3

Also, shout-out for some really interesting creatures. I particularly liked the trolls—not a take on trolls that I'd seen before.

My only quibbles were that the final battle felt rather short and therefore anticli

This is a beautiful, creative, entertaining fantasy story that has heart and substance. I have long looked forward to reading "The Wolf Prince," and finally reached it on my TBR. The anticipation did not lessen my enjoyment in the slightest.

Some things I loved:
- The key relationships in the series: Two brothers, and a ranger-type girl who becomes their friend. All of the dynamics in this trio were wonderful, including the absence of romance as a focus. But my favorite part was how Banschbach c

This is a clean non-romantic ya that is suitable for both older and younger readers.

Younger son Prince Killian is whispered to have been cursed with wolf’s blood. He dreads turning out like his crazy uncle who got locked up. When Killian does become a wolf and is hunted by a vengeful sorcerer, he has to rely on his irresponsible brother, a lower-class ranger girl and faeries to escape.

The fun in this lies in: Killian being a wolf and trying to communicate with humans; the brothers and their ba

I'm embarrassed to say it took me until the new year to grab this sequel off my shelf and read it. I liked Adela's Curse, but The Wolf Prince was even better. I can see Claire Banschbach has an affinity for great sibling relationships, catching that balance between love, protectiveness, and annoyance. In this book, the younger brother of two princes carries the family curse. When a vengeful sorcerer is able to twist that curse to meet his own ends, turning him to an actual wolf, the eldest nearl ...more

5/5 stars. I loved nearly everything about this book. The Wolf Prince held my attention from the very beginning with a ghost story about a family who is cursed with the ability to understand wolves. The character development is excellent (especially in Lars), and I absolutely loved the dynamic relationships (albeit them being a little cliche)- the hotheadedness of the two brothers, the way they both treat and care for Rose ((view spoiler) ...more

Claire M. Banschbach has created another delightful tale in her Faeries of Myrnius series with The Wolf Prince. Set long after the events in Adela's Curse, readers get to revisit a few familiar characters while falling in love with a whole new cast. Killian, Lars and Rose make an unlikely trio on an extraordinary quest to break a double curse and stop a wicked sorcerer.

If you like faeries, quests, troubled princes and the intrigue of a curse, this book may just be a new favorite for you.

I loved this book! I received an ARC from the author. The sibling relationship between Killian and his brother was so much fun to read. I love siblings in stories. All three major characters had good character arcs, and the plot drew me in within a few pages. The villain seemed a little flat and cookie cutter, but that was my only quibble with the book.

It's been a while since I've read a fantasy adventure book, and man, did I enjoy this one! ❤ Killian and all his wolfy snark! The bad guy is powerful and sinister, our heroes are lovable with both flaws and growth, and the world is so interesting with faeries, monsters, and other fantasy creatures. And wolves, of course!

Also, if you've read the first book in the series, you just might see some old friends 😉

Sooooo stinkin' cute!!!! Seriously, Lars and Killian are the best, and I loved Rose so much!! The characters in here are wonderful!!! I loved seeing them all interact. I was surprised when some certain fairies showed up, but wasn't disappointed.

Magic: There is a good bit of that in here. There's a curse put on the royal family, Killian is turned into a wolf, there's magical fairies... There is good magic, and bad magic, however. All the fairies have magic, and the evil sorcerer has tried to gain
