[Review] - Broods of Fenrir by Coral Moore
Author: Coral Moore
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: November 20, 2011
I received this book for review from the author.
Summary: 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.
Thoughts: Brand Geirson has been running away from his past and his destiny ever since he killed his brutal father. But with his loved ones in danger, he must come back to his past and the throne - if he expects his world to survive.
A riveting tale. I found lead character Brand to be fascinating. Not your average Alpha - but a delight all the same. The beautiful cover made me eager to read this one and find out more about Brand. Broods of Fenrir is an intense, fast moving story. The shapeshifters here seem to be more vicious than other wolves I've read about. I loved that these wolves are rooted in Norse Mythology. Ms. Moore's writing is smooth and engaging. Wolf and Norse fans alike should give this one a try.
Score: 4 Stars
