Review of She Wulf by Sheryl Steines

Pages: 264
She WulfPublisher: Sheryl Steines
Released: August 2012

Plot: He came through the centuries to find her, the girl who could save them all. Annie Pearce runs through the streets of the city, chasing a demon, the likes she has never seen before. As she works to find out where the demon came from, the Wizard Guard encounters something even more bizarre. A tenth century Viking.

When Annie gets sucked into the past, she must struggle with the knowledge of the prophecy that tells of her destiny. The one she must fulfill if she is to return home. What happens in the past will change the world. (Goodreads)

Good Points: I thought the characters were built up well and the author had definitely made it clear that Annie and Cham will do anything for each other. I liked the whole plot of bringing the Viking in, quite original there and I thought the plot line of going back in time was really unique, I've not read many books that do this and it's really nice to see the contrasts between the two places. The book follows on from The Day of first Sun which is the prequel com in the series. To be honest I didn't know this, but despite this I still quickly managed to gain the basic plot to the story without reading the first book. I think the author has to be congratulated on this because this is a hard thing to do, usually I'm left clueless when this happens but I knew exactly who everyone was and just from the few moments at the beginning alone you just know that Cham and Annie are meant for each other!

Bad Points: There were some moments where I didn't like one character or another just simply because of their attitude and I thought Cham could get a little Annie-sick after a while missing her which although showed how much he loved her got a tiny little bit on my nerves. But that was it I swear!

To Sum Up... To be honest I thought this book was a good little read, I'm definitely going to seek out the first part of  Cham and Annie's story to see what happens there, though I think I may have spoiled the ending to that one already after reading this book. The character changing perspectives was a nice touch and added extra detail to each characters perspective and emotions, I especially loved the Vikings, just because well...he's a Viking! And if that doesn't add brownie points for coolness then what will?
