Book review - Broods of Fenrir by Coral Moore
review by Becky
Shapeshifter Brand Geirson was raised to rule the Broods of Fenrir, but he refused his birthright. Instead, he killed their brutal leader-his own father-and walked away. For hundreds of years he's avoided brood society, until a werewolf kills an innocent human woman and Brand finds himself dragged back into the violent politics of the shapeshifters. When the two brood women who mean the most to him come under threat, he must take up the throne and risk becoming the kind of vicious bastard his father was, or let the broods descend further into chaos-taking the friend he swore to protect and his lover with them.
Available on Amazon.com: Broods of Fenrir
This is a super action, thrill, romance, danger, tension and drama packed norse fantasy from a very talented writer. It has a large dose of norse mythology but subtle enough to not baffle any non-nordic readers, has all the drama and action of a Sookie Stackhouse adventure plus the mystery and danger to go with it. I loved reading every page and was gutted when it finally ended which was too soon! Coral really captures the spirit, essence and character of wolves and beautifully transports it into these mythical werewolves. I can only pray to Odin (and perhaps Loki) that Coral does indeed write a sequel to this fantastic book. Thankfully there are still some delights as she's written two novella's giving some history and insight into the characters in this main book.
It is a highly recommended read for those who love wolves, werewolves, magic and norse mythology.
