I really enjoyed this book, set in an apocalyptic setting, Rihanna has been on her own for years, trying to survive in the dangerous world life has turned into, when she is found by a group of shifter males her life will never be the same again

Full of excitement and danger from the start, I absolutely loved Rihanna from the start, she is strong and fiesty, but has a vulnerability about her. A very enjoyable read but I would love to have seen a little more interaction between Rhiannon and her gu

The premise was good but I just feel this book needed more development all the way around. It felt more like a serial, novella or a prequel than the actual novel. That being said I would've loved to know more about the dystopian world they're living in, more about the princess' life previous, more time spent on the relationship with the men (which was largely nonexistent), more time spent on all the characters and more detail spent on the magic everyone was or wasn't using. Now that's the book I ...more

This was a very entertaining story that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end!! I loved the fiery Autumn Fae who possed such a fierce fighting spirit. Her wolves were interesting characters who all had a mind of their own. I think that mates are so very appealing! And for one to resist the bond is such a captivating idea! End of the world themes are intriguing and frightening. I think the ideas of Paranormals being able to survive most apocalyptic circumstances wouldn't be su ...more

Really good set up for a new series.
This time it's read full of paranormals, apocalyptic world, and reverse harem - everything I love in books!
Characters were well developed, the plot was intriguing and we got to see characters from other stories by Ms. Greenwood! Which was great to see that all stories are interconnected!

This was a great apocalyptic reverse harem! Rhianna ran away from the fae realm five years ago and is stuck in the destructed human realm that her people caused. She’s been running ever since with no way out and now she’s running from wolves. These four wolves, Charlie, Jacob, Mika, and Zeke, are actually her honor guard sent from her mother to protect her and bring her back home, but they’re also her mates.

Hall of Hope was a short, action packed, reverse harem paranormal romance. The plot was imaginative and interesting, set in a post apocalyptic world and held my attention until the end. I liked the characters, Rihanna was independent and strong with a touch a fiestiness and I loved her interaction and banter with her 4 men. I would recommend this novella to all lovers of paranormal romance.

Fall of Hope by Laura Greenwood is a paranormal apocalyptic reverse harem that I listened to on audio narrated by Tracey Rooney. The book use to be titled as Wolf Blessed.

I just love Laura’s books! They always leave me begging for more! I cannot wait to dive into the second book of the series Rise of the Night (previously known as Fae Blessed).

Tracey did a great job on the narration. There were a few spots throughout the story that she repeated a sentence or phrase but not enough to distract f

Running away from the Fae realm was not a good decision, especially since she ran right into the end of the world -- literally. Most animals and humans had died out now, so the howling wolves she heard were unnerving and Rhianna found it best to keep running and out of their path. With the Fae being blamed by any remaining people for this disaster, capturing a full-blooded Fae who could control the seasons was thought to be the cure for the out-of-control world they now lived in. And unfortunate ...more

I received an Audible Code through a Facebook group called Audiobook Obsession. This was for an honest review and I was not compensated for this review. What follows is my opinion and mine alone.

First, I should state that even though this book is a reverse harem, I wouldn't worry. And by worry, I mean that this is not a steamy sexy romance. This is a paranormal apocalyptic book where we see the future of the world after a cataclysmic event that is only mentioned. The romance just happens to be i

Wolf Blessed follows the adventures of a fae princess who ran away from the fae realm only to wind up in a post-apocalyptic world where the fae are blamed for the disaster! A wolf shifter honor guard sent by her mother, the queen, finally tracked her down, but Rhianna does not want their help. Soon, she's captured by people who believe that having a full-blood Fae like her will help them restore balance and order to the world. Her wolf honor guard retrieves her a few weeks later, but they find s ...more

This book was disappointing. There was a possibility for a great storyline here, if it had had more depth. The relationship with the characters is far too quick and easy, even if one of the parties was a little slow into it. When Rhianna first meets her quad of mates, she is in no way inclined to let them save her. But, not long after, when she meets them again all guilt filled (most notably when they save h

Rhianna is a runaway fae princess. The Autumn Princess. For five years she's been trapped on Earth as the world fell apart. Now her past has caught up to her as four wolf shifters, her guards have found her. As much as Rhianna hated for the past to catch up to her, their timing couldn't have been better since she was kidnapped that very night by a group planning to restore civilization. Unfortunately, their plans may be worse than the end of the world.

This tale has fun, adventure and excitement right from the beginning through to the end. Laura Greenwood has managed to do it again with an interesting take on the Fae universe. Here, in Wolf Blessed we follow Rhianna as she finds that the world she thought she'd left behind hasn't quite let go of her yet. In this post-apocalyptic world, the Fae have abandoned Earth in favour of their own realm, leaving behind various supernatural beings.

This first book in the Blessed series was an interesting read, set in a post-apocalyptic world caused by the loss of connection to the fae world (the fae control the seasons, so without them the weather just went completely crazy, which combined with climate change to wipe everyone human out, especially as paranormals came out of the closet and more fighting caused more deaths). It was an intriguing premise for a story, and the story itself is excellently written, full of twists and turns, actio ...more

Rhianna is an Autumn Fae and she is tied to the fall season. She is one of the four fae Princesses. Now that the portals are closed no can get back to Fae. So most of humanity and paranormals are stuck on this destroyed earth side where there are barely any basic necessities. There are no more animals or seasons. She is being chased or hunted by 4 werewolves. They are wolf shifters assigned by the Queen to bring her home. The four men are her Honour Guards and her mates. She does not want to hav ...more

This is a low heat paranormal adventure story. Rhianna is a run-away princess who has learned to survive on her own for 5 years in a dying and dangerous world. She keeps her reason for leaving the fae realm a secret. 4 guardian shifter wolves finally track her down after 5 years of searching. To me, that seems like an awful long time and makes me wonder at their skill level. Rhianna, however, wants to have nothing to do with the wolves. She doesn't need them after all, until she needs them! That ...more

Rhianna was a Fae Princess of Autumn who had runaway and wound up being trapped on the human side when the portal closed.

Like all of Laura’s books this one does not disappoint. As soon as I started reading my attention was captivated and I was fully invested in Rhianna and what she was going through. She is a great FMC who is full of spunk, magic and is feisty as hell! She still feels some vulnerability though as she has been alone and on the run for so many years. When she meets to wolfs that have been sent to protect her there is a lot of tension and instant connection...these are her mates! Charlie and Jacob we ...more

I really liked Rhianna, she was quirky, stubborn and a fighter. She ran away from the fae realm for a reason but when the world went haywire the door between the worlds closed permanently and she was left to fend herself, which she does remarkably well. Most animals and humans are gone and paranormals abound. She has kept to herself because most of the world blame the fae for everything that has gone wrong.

Rihanna is a fae princess from the autumn court stuck on the human side of the portal. From the beginning she has an attitude problem. She meets four wolf shifters that are guards sent by her mother before the portal collapsed. After so long and being so careful, she blew all of her caution and ended up being captured. This is where things get dicey. She's now upset she ran from her guards. This is where things get exciting and twisted. I did like the way it ended, but I also wished there was mo ...more

Has the potential to be a great book

Loved the idea about the story with how the face intertwined with wolves but overall the story lacked some details. Everything felt a bit rushed and was hoping since this book.was rather short that the next book would provide more answers. Unfortunately that isn't the case. Great main female character and loved the start of her harem but was disappointed in the lack of details and that love for the characters you get as a reader because I felt I really didn't

What amazing world building this book holds! We get a post apocalyptic world that suffers from no seasons and crazy weather that cannot be predicting.

The stories of this dystopian series are set a few years after the shifter council stories. Earth is out of balance, most or all humans died and paranormals are trying to survive. There is talk about sanctuaries, but are they real?

Dark time for Earth can't stop fated mates

This was an interesting spin on a post apocalyptic world and features a fae princess and her 4 lycan mates. There's no order to the weather or seasons and I can't even imagine trying to make a life in such conditions. For a princess of autumn, I have no idea how she coped. This is a seriously dark time for Earth, and its inhabitants, both regular and supernatural, and these guys have to deal with a ton of danger and twisted thinking while trying to stay
