~ Under the Covers
First of all…. I’m a huge fan of the Women of the Otherworld series. I love and adore this world and all the characters we met in it over the years. I was also kind of happy to see the author end the series on a high note, as much as I was saddened to not have more books to read about them. At the same time, when I heard that we would get at least 2 new books about the kids of one of the best couples in the series I was beyond excited. It feels like an extra treat we were not expecting!
This is about Kate and Logan Danvers, the twins of Elena and Clay. They’re now teenagers and struggling with a lot of the same identity things that normal teenagers go through. Except they’re also shifters and have the added pressure of being the kids of the Alpha female and legendary Enforcer of The Pack. While they’ve always been the closest of siblings, things have pushed them apart recently, which makes the situation they have to face in this book more of a problem.
There’s an Australian pack that threatens them and they are sent to a young supernaturals camp. Once they get there though, they realize quickly things are not what they seem and they have their own set of problems to deal with there.
There were many things about WOLF’S BANE that I enjoyed reading about. The biggest one was the treat of seeing the twins more grown up. I can’t help it, as a fan of the series this was my number one enjoyment. But once I took that out, I thought the story was a bit slow and bugged down with a heavy dose of teenage behavior. Keep in mind this is a young adult novel, so yes that’s to be expected. This is also why I don’t read a ton of YA. So that was probably what made me enjoy this book less.
However, the plot was interesting and there were a lot of things a fan of the series will find intriguing. I am really excited about one particular character and the connection with someone from the original series. I can’t wait to see how that develops more in the next installment of this. This first book does end in a cliffhanger basically, so I’ll be on the lookout for the next part of the story now that I think most of the “not talking about our problems” is overcome.
*** For now, you can only read this story on the Radish Fiction App. You can download through the Google Store or App Store. And it’s serialized (starting October 29, 2018). This will be published through regular ebook retailers later on (I believe in a year or so).

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
