Review: Wolf's Honor by Ambrielle Kirk Book 6 in the Caedmon Wolves Series and Another book in our Romantic Suspense Month
We have reached mid month in our May Romantic Suspense month and today we are talking about suspense in PNR.. Here is a novella and the 6th book in the Caedmon Wolves series. The intrigue in the story starts from page 1 and is a huge vehicle moving this story forward. Although the novella didn't work well for me...this could have been an incredible read with more words and a slower pace.
Netgalley was kind enough to give me this book in exchange for an honest review. So with honesty in mind I have say I wasn't really excited by this book. I am not normally a novella fan and this novel is a prime example why.
The characters in the book are likeable but with out a more in depth background and more page time letting us get to know them they only were single dimensional and therefore hard to connect with and hard to care about. The relationship that built between them was really rushed and I didn't feel the connection between the two characters. Secondary characters you would feel better about because a lot of them were in previous books in the series. I have been told this could be read as a stand alone but I think the reader would enjoy the book more if they had read the previous 5 books.
The story was interesting and could have been wonderful but 134 pages to introduce the characters, give of a sketch of the world they live in and create an action packed plot that has a lot going on is very difficult and I feel this could have been a wonderful read if it was a full length novel and not just a novella.
I am giving this story a 2.5 star rating rounding up to 3 because I just didn't connect with it the way I did with other novels in this series.
