I wanted to kill him…
…now I want to love him.

No female has ever fought me before.

Wow - wolf shifters and cat shifters together. Darius is a wolf shifter who has always been treated as an outcast although he doesn't know why. He encounters a cat shifter and doesn't understand the attraction. Amara is just as confused as he is as she has never met a wolf shifter before. Their time together is full of action and drama underscored by a growing love for each other. Great characters with a very interesting storyline. I cant wait for the next book in this series.

An interesting story about 2 different type of shifters that are at odds with their packs.

Darius is a wolf shifter who, for some unknown reason, is not well accepted by his pack nor his Alpha. He doesn’t know why; nor can he find anything out about his absent mother since both his father and the Alpha refuse to talk about her. But he is their best tracker and the Alpha’s son Remus, his best friend, asks him to help find some missing shifters who had been gone for several days now. Darius found the scent of two shifters – but there was something else too that he could not identify. Th ...more

This is a very good story. There is a secret that will take a bit to unravel. You will find some mystery, great action, strength of character, some unexpected elements, and, yup, HEA.

The outcast of the pack was the best tracker they had. Darius had no idea why he was shunned and hated by his pack. He was a large wolf but that is not strange; there were a couple little differences but nothing to cause being ostracized. Even though his Alpha’s hatred could turn fatal with the right enticement his

The author did a wonderful job of mixing together intrigue, romance, and prejudice within the paranormal. world of wolf shifters and cat shifters. The story starts out from the viewpoint of a wolf shifter who has always been ostracized by his wolf pack. If it wasn't for his friendship with the Alpha's son, it is debatable whether he would have even been alive. The hatred of the wolves towards one of the main characters "Darius" started with the Alpha himself. Readers are left wondering as to why ...more

Darius is a wolf shifter. At least that is what he has always thought himself to be even if he likes to climb trees and do a few things different than other wolf shifters. Plagued by the hatred of his Alpha and most of his pack, Darius has no idea of the changes about to occur in his life. Amara is the daughter of of Cougar shifter who is the Alpha of her clan of cat shifters. The cat shifter clan and the pack of wolf shifters have long been enemies, seperated, both by racial differences and a r ...more

This is an interesting book in that it has not only wolf shifters but cat shifters as well and we all know that cat and dogs don't mix or do they.

Darius is a wolf shifter he his basically ignored by his pack and alpha he knows it has something to do with his mother but he has no answers but he is the packs best tracker and when shifters go missing he is sent to find them. When he realises the missing wolf shifters have crossed into pride land (there neighbours who they don't get on with) h knows

I really enjoyed reading this, I believe it is my first opportunity to do a Cloe Cullen story. I like the world building. For me it showed emotions of prejudice between people for the two sides of the coin for lack of a better term. Darius is a wolf shifter on the outside of the pack, He doesn't really understand why the Alpha has a grudge against him.

He meets a cat shifter while trying to find missing wolves. It has been taught that wolves should not cross the boundary of the river but he cross

Awesome battle for wolf and cat shifters to live in peace

Darius, a wolf shifter, meets a cat shifter name Amara to overcome their hatred for each other and save their people from being overtaken by a vampire and his minions. In the meantime Darius and Amara have fallen in love and mates. But is there hope for them when they have been enemies for so long.

This fast-paced drama keep the reader on the edge of their seat, especially the battle scenes and the alphas fight to the death scene. The perso

This book captivated me from the start. From the beginning I felt strongly for Darius. Through no fault of his own, he has suffered prejudices from his own pack. He's always been the "lone wolf". His differences also make him very useful, and expendable, to the pack. It didn't hurt that his best friend is the alphas son. The story really shows that even if we are different, we are all still basically the same. Amara is from the other side of the river and the daughter of the alpha. I really love ...more

Wow! Talk about not wanting to walk away. This is one exciting, action packed, fast paced, hard hitting, pulse racing, heart pounding, nailbiting, page turning bombshell that captivates from the start. All the twists and turns along with a few unexpected surprises and unpredictable circumstances make for one incredible experience. With a whirlwind of emotions and activities that builds the drama, danger and suspense throughout as tension soar. The two main charact

This is the first work of Cloe Cullen I've read so I came into this with no preconceived ideas as to what to expect. Her storyline is very concise and flows in the telling with personable characters which are very relatable. As in every day life, I found intolerance, prejudice, preconceived ideas about other individuals which were difficult to overcome. But then there were other attributes that gave the reader hope, such as friendship, acceptance, camaraderie, hope and love. This was quite the m ...more

This is a book that includes shifters and vampires. I am not a vampire fan and I appreciate that while the vamps were a part of the story that didn't distract from the romance that was the main focus. It was sort of like reading about a mixed race couple trying to overcome family prejudices; wolves and cats! I liked the story and the characters and the way I could visualize what the writer was describing. There is a lot action; some a little gruesome but not too much. There are also some steamy ...more

Received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review! Oh my gosh!! I really loved this book for many reasons!! 😍 I am really into Paranormal Shifter romances! It was such a "good" read that I didn't want to take any breaks from reading it!! The story was exciting, intense and suspenseful with an interesting twist! I liked how the author described the the setting(s)/scenery and the characters especially Darius, a wolf shifter and Amara, a cat/cougar shifter. Their attraction is pretty mu ...more

This is a NON-SPOILER REVIEW. Howl and Growl by Cloe Cullen is Book 1 in the Howl and Growl series. This is my first Cloe Cullen read and I must say that as a series starter it shows a lot of promise. There's plenty of action, adventure and sweet romance. Darius and Amara's story is fraught with mayhem and danger. I love the underlying message this story imparts. Ms. Cullen gives us an interesting tale of wolves, big cats, changelings and vampires. This story is packed with emotion. There is int ...more

This is my first read by this author and I totally enjoyed it. Loved the interesting storyline and the two main characters, Darius, a wolf shifter and Amara, a cougar shifter. They are from different clans which consider each other enemies. What they go through to survive a budding romance, and a enemy of both clans. There is so much more I could write but then I'd be giving spoilers. There is plenty of action, prejudices, sweet romance and some surprising twists and turns. I highly recommend th ...more

To find them our hero must cross into the panther shifter territory but once there, is challenged by the alpha's daughter. They both then become enimies of the vampire and have to join together to save both thier clans but are met with resistance from the alphas. I liked how both characters grow ...more

I really enjoyed this book. You could virtually feel the chemistry of Darius and Amara. Although they come from seperate warring clans and in spite of the fact he's a wolf shifter and she's a cat shifter they make it work. Enough action/adventure to keep you interested but not so much that I felt like I was reading a war book. I love Ms Cullen's writing style, very fluid and smooth. It never felt rushed or jumbled up. While I await book 2 of the series I am going to start "Dragon's Jewel" also b ...more

In nature cats and dogs just don't get along. But in Supernatural the things can you turn a little frisky. This is my first book I've ever read by the author Chole Cullen. Although I received a free copy voluntarily reviewed. Her character development is complete, strong and we'll developed. It's not hard for you to go. Along with which makes the story a easy flowing story. Mind you there is heat plenty of it.

The characters and their clans are just as flawed as we are. You can relate with each of the characters. Some you love, some you hate, and some you love to hate. Three races come together after a hunting party for lost pack members turns into a race against time and evil. Really enjoyed this book, would love to read about more characters from these groups. HEA fought and won.

I really enjoyed this book and completely recommend it. The characters are engaging and well developed, the story has enough twists to keep it interesting, and the protagonists are equals, no damsel in distress here! I read it one sitting, I just had to see what happened next. I have not read anything by this author before but I am definitely looking forward to reading more!

This was different

This was a different start to this story about wolves, cats and vampires. Alphas stuck with their stubbornness and somewhat nuts. Darius was not liked and Amara was not happy with the males in her pride. This is a really good book and I can’t wait to read the next.

A nice shifter romance

Amara, a cat shifter, encounters Darius, a wolf shifter, when he travels into pride territory looking for some lost pack mates. As the story progresses old feuds create strife, myths and rumors turn to truth and a common enemy unites them. Cloe Cullen created a nice world for shifters and vampires to cavort and battle in.

Epic Start to the Series

Can two vastly different shifter factions learn to work together to save both groups? There's plenty of action, romance and intrigue to make this book worth reading. There's also an underlying theme throughout the story - we are all stronger together. I'm looking forward to reading more about these characters.
