Rating: 1.5 stars

I have been super harsh and disrespectful in my review and while I utterly hated the book, the author didn't deserve it.

I will sum up in just a few point, politely I hope, why I could not stand the sight of this book and why my rating is so severe.

+ The pace is uneven. The beginning flew by far too fast compared to the rest of the book. We went to her background story to a fully set plot in a couple of chapters.

+ I found the characters borderline disgusting. We all like ass

Tough chick?

All Ariana has known for last decade is fighting. Her owner has her in the pits tearing through opponents. Other unlucky snatches or slaves or debtors; it doesn't matter. The only rules she has known are: stay to the back of the cage and kill or die. So when her rescue comes about and she's told that her new life involves being a peacemaker, yeah, there's a lot of panic. What does she know about peace? And holding together 4 clans of very different shifters doesn't sound fun at all.

Really great premise. Unfortunately, for me, the execution just didn't make it happen. I just felt that the super rushed plot really undid this book for me. It ended up just barely being cohesive enough to really fit and so I ended up being a little disappointed. I feel like with more time and story development maybe dragging this out a little more this really could have been great. This happens quite a bit with RHN, it seems. Its like the authors are in such a huge hurry to get the female in as ...more

What a great start to a new series. Ari is the silver shifter and is such a great main character. I love the twist with the 4 mates instead of just 1. Storyline is phenomenal. I won't give away any spoilers but that ending. I need to read the next book. Almost cried that it ended to quickly and on a cliffhanger. Definitely a must read. Author did a fantastic job writing this story. Absolutely loving series!!! Cant wait to read more.

This is the first book in a titillating shifter reverse harem series. It is full of adventure and drama, but this book is for those over 18, with sex scenes that will keep you turning the pages until the last.

Ariana is a twenty year old wolf shifter who has lived her life in servitude to a vampire. Once she was old enough to fight, after her parents’ death, she was kept in a cage and thrown into the fighting pit, where her life depended on her ability to kill her opponent. Winners ate, though no

Wow! Talk about unexpected. This dynamic duo works their magic with this little gem. So touching and sincere with a plethora of emotions that will rock you to the core. All the trials and tribulations bring this magnificent read roaring to life brilliantly. The characters were intriguing, complex and realistic. The scenes were so vividly detailed and descriptive that it gives the illusion you were right there in the middle of ground zero with them. Twists and

I both like and dislike this book. The overall plot is good, but, it is way too rushed and the end result is that all the characters and the plot itself fall flat. There's no depth to this book. However, I can see the potential this book had and what the following books could have. Although, I have not decided if I’ll read the coming books or not.

I wasn’t too sure what to expect, this was a little different from the usual RH shifter romance. It was a surprise from the beginning all the way to the end, which was nice. Excited to see where it goes!

Wow a fantastic read. The book has you right from the first page, it has you on the edge of your seat with wondering what is going to happen next. What a great beginning, Its fast paced and paced with action and emotions, as Ariana gets to now her four. I was not able to put the book down. The Authors done a fantastic job at bringing the characters out. I love Arianas humor as well. This is definitely a must read. This is definitely more than a five star read.

Really good start to a new series. Ari has never known what life in a pack is like. She has been owned as a slave. Literally fighting for her life. She learns she has to adapt quickly to her new life. I like all of the characters and am excited to read more in this series.

Wasnt sure what to expect with this one at first. this was a great first book to a new series with a good plot line that has so much potential to go different ways. The MC is a good mix of strong and brave with vulnerable and understanding. There is so much more to her we have yet to read about, I feel the author wrote her with so many layers that make her who she is and who she'll become.The four male love interest are hot and diverse, definitely can't wait to see how each romance goes as the s ...more

First off let me say I need April to get here fast! I want more of these characters ASAP!

Ari’s life hasn’t been a bed of roses. She’s lived most of it in a cage or the fighting ring, trying to stay alive.

Things change when a stranger steps in.

This is a super fast read. You don’t want the book to end. The pages seem to turn their selves though.

What’s not to like.. one gutsy scrapper who’s life has always been determined by if she wins the fight and then add four alphas from four very different

An addictive, heart pulling, adventurous read. Ari lived her whole life in captivity, fighting to the death just for her next meal. Under the ownership of a warlock and kept at bat by vampires. Until she’s rescues by Maximus & introduced to the alphas of the different shifters, & her wolf wants to claim them all as her mate.
Whilst facing the push and pull between alphas, Ari has to also deal with an outside threat, as well as find her role as the silver shifter.

My first thought about this book is that this has been done before and I read a book that is incredibly similar to this last year. Sure, there are some differences but the main story is pretty much the same. So that marked it down right off the bat.
World building? Very little. I dont really know why there are warring shifter clans and I'm not entirely sure what's up with the vampires.
Back story? We get absolutely little. Which, I'm okay with. Sorta.

2 Entirely Underwhelmed Stars

So I gave up reading around 40%, and just skimmed the rest. I couldn’t stomach it any more.

If I had to pinpoint what exactly pissed me off? I’m not entirely sure it would be that simple.
Let’s start with the way Maximus, knowing what he just took her from and having seen it with his own facking eyes, shoved her in a cage the first time she understandably disagrees with him.
Then there’s the way Arianna just goes behind each of the male leads back hooking up and mati

I had the pleasure of getting the opportunity to read this book early in exchange for an honest review. It took me a while just with life and everything getting in the way, but I finally finished! And just in time!

Let me first start off by saying that I've never gone into the reverse harem world before, so this was my taste into what exactly it's like. I will say that it was nothing like what I expected, and I actually enjoyed this world! It's so much more fun seeing a woman in charge of her man

Good story, but i had some issues.

I feather enjoyed this. It was a bit cliche in terms of her being rescued but what didn't make sense as how adjusted to real life she is after being a captive slave her whole life. It makes no sense but ok. Also the context of the world feels a bit odd, are we assuming humans know about supernaturals? It wasn't super clear. Also seems a bit odd that the only shifters in the entire world are in and around New York. great story but it feels like there was many mi

Had the makings to be good but was poorly executed

Hard book to rate, is it horrible to say I only liked the ending? I surprised myself on pushing through to finish when there was plenty of times throughout the read I didn't want to , this book seemed rushed in the romance department, and I didn't care how it was done, i didn't care for her sleeping with them behind each of their backs, claiming them, then telling them after like nothing, for someone trapped her whole life trapping these men with

I just binge read through the first four books of Katherine Bogle and Alexa B. James’ Silver Shifter series, both the ones if read before (Her Wolf, Her Dragon and Her Bear) and the latest, Her Panther (Book 4). These really are urban fantasy romance at its finest. I love Ariana and her four alpha shifter mates. It’s a total pleasure seeing their reverse harm romance gradually develop as these books go on and as she grows into true kick-a** stature.

Her Wolf is the first book in this series from the new to me writing duo. It tells the story of Ariana, an orphaned wolf shifter who was indebted to a warlock as his prized pit fighter. She grew up only knowing this life until she was inadvertantly rescued by Maximus, an alpha wolf. She then learned from him that she was the prophesied Silver Shifter, the one who will unite the four warring clans of shifters. Little did they know that it's gonna be literally that.

So, let's hit the list of missed opportunities. There was no world building at all, like why are the shifter groups warring, how do vampires fit in, how did Ari's shifter parents end up indebted, how are the pit fights allowed, etc. The characters were all one dimensional stereotypes with excuses rather than redeeming qualities. There were no actual relationships built, just cases of "my animal decided for me". Ari is the one supposed to bring everyone together and yet she rolls over

Man, whay an excellent book!

There are no cliches in this book! I am so excited to start reading the next one. I'm just glad it came out in April because I despise waiting for a continuation. However, in this case, I'm glad I didn't know it was continued because I wouldn't have read this book and I really enjoyed it, so far, lol!

As it got closer to the end, I was getting concerned because it seemed like there should be so much more before the story was over, then, "Wham!" it threw the continuati

Missing pieces

Sure, the action scenes are good... but everything else is missing complexity. I couldn't connect to the characters. There were also some parts that were misleading? Like, where Ari confesses to one of her mates how many mates she has, and she says two, but that didn't make sense since she has four total. There were quite a few slips like that, lapses in time where there could have been something going on. I mean, aside from all the "mine mine mine mine" going on, you would think A

Her Wolf is Book 1 in the Silver Shifter series. This book is filled with multiple shifters -- wolves, dragons, bears, panthers -- and vampire. Our FMC Ariana is a wolf shifter who has been a slave since childhood, kept in a dog cage and forced to fight for her life by a vampire. She is rescued by Maximus, an alpha wolf shifter, and is told she is the Silver Shifter who will unite the four clans. Now her next adventure begins, especially on the mate front as it appear there are four, one from ea ...more

Good, but fast

I rally like the concept behind this book and the overall plot. It’s unique and plays with the concept of fated mates rather well, including adding jealousy where many RH novels make a deliberate attempt to leave that out.

Multiple POV, fated mates, mmmmf, fast burn.

- Interesting Plot.
- Inclusion of expected human emotions with multiple pairings was a welcome addition.
- Shira, female character that isn’t horrible or catty to the FMC, again a switch up within genre.

Not a bad start

Although i have some really serious issues that almost caused me to stop reading and drop this book really early due to the treatment that Ari received from the wolves I pushed through and finished. I’m still not terribly happy with how they treat her but it did get better.

Even with the developments throughout the book I’m finding it really hard to dismiss the wolves behavior but I’m trying as things progress. I’ll be attempting the second book and see how that goes.

What a way to start the story off, the strength Ariana shows to move forward and become who she is ment to be is awe inspiring. She has such a strong sense of who she is and is not willing to let eveything she has had to endure slow her down and stop her from getting what she wants. With 4 strong Alphas one from each race, a wolf, a bear, a dragon and a panter she has her hands full and plenty of conflicting feelings.

Ariana has been captive in her wolf form, starved, and forced to fight for years. She is suddenly rescued and her world completely changes. I liked Ariana, but did think that considering her life up to then she seemed to get over it and be fairly trusting pretty quickly. I liked the 4 guys, but Maximus irritated me early on. I am intrigued by Jetta, and love Cash’s attitude and Owen’s sweetness. I am intrigued to see where this series goes and to find out more about Ariana’s powers and how the g ...more
