Wolfen Time, Roxy Boroughs
A new to me author and I enjoyed her writing style and this story. I’m not sure if its a stand alone read or beginning of a series. It does end completely, but the world created could go on to stand further stories and I’d enjoy reading them.
Poor Stacy, she’s shocked when she comes across a battle between werewolves and vampires. Well, who wouldn’t be, they belong in stories not out there on the street? She can’t deny what’s she’s seeing though, and that means she gets embroiled in a battle between two sides, one wanting to protect earth and save millions of lives, the other who are out for their own ends and don’t care who gets killed along the way.
Rafe is attracted to Stacy, and that shocks him. He’s been grieving his wife and child who were murdered, and hasn’t been interested in anyone since they were killed. Its not really the time either to be starting anything. He’s only here for a few days. never the less the attraction is strong on both sides and leads them to do things they wouldn’t usually, and brings out some very sensual but not over the top sex scenes. I like the others in the group too, and the connections between them. The renegades, they’d done some gruesome things in their quest for power. They’ve come back in time from the 23rd century too and are tampering with history, and that’s why Rafe’s group needs to try to stop them. It brings them all into some real dangers, bloody battles, strange new and different supernatural groups.Stacey is hiding who she really is though, from past experience she knows that’s best. She’s not the only one with secrets though, and when both come out there are some real shocks for everyone.
Its a fun read, not over complicated, but one that’s easy to just sit back and relax into. I liked the characters and the premise of time travel, and ensuring history stays the same. I’d be happy to read more books set around this time travel, keeping history stable theme. There’s certainly the potential for more from this story, it ends neatly but there are openings for further novels.
.Stars: Four, an enjoyable and easy to read story.
