Raine is a slave, a gladiator. Known as the Bloody Wolf, he is the champion of all champions in the Empire of Khalid. Ly'Tana is a warrior princess of Kel'Halla and is set to wed the heir to Khalid's throne, Crown Prince Broughton. When Raine and his new wizard pal, Rygel, accidentally murder the High King, they set in motion events which rapidly spiral out of control. Ly'Tana discovers the true, and violent, nature of her betrothed, a man nicknamed Prince Brutal for his vicious nature, and escapes her marriage. Brutal will stop at nothing to have her for his wife. To entice his runaway bride into a trap, he brings down and captures her griffin bodyguard, Bar. Ly'Tana vows to have Bar back or die trying, and seeks the help of Raine and Rygel, to free Bar from Brutal's clutches. In doing so, Raine and Ly'Tana are forced to flee for their lives, hunted by Brutal's secretive assassins. Can they escape the hunters and their silent, evil hounds? Can Ly'Tana evade Brutal's hungry need to marry her and seize her beloved country? Can Raine keep Ly'Tana alive and still save himself from capture and torture? Can they stop themselves from falling in love? Thus begins the first novel of The Saga of the Black Wolf series.
Oh my goodness I cannot gush enough about this book. A. Katie Rose is a genius and I am in love with this series!!! <3 p="">

Ah!! Okay so I am seriously in love with this book. I honestly didn’t think I would be since there is so much description of everything, but A. Katie Rose wrote this book so well I honestly didn’t notice it all that much.
The characters are all phenomenal. Ly’Tana is a warrior and she kicks major butt in this book. Her loyalty is always to those around her and she always uses her instincts to think through a situation. There are a few times when she breaks down and is vulnerable, but honestly that just made me like her more. Raine is amazing I love him. He is funny and just an all-around good person from the start. I could tell right away there was more to his story. The whole cast of characters is honestly amazing. All of them have their own personalities and they all bring something to this book that would have been empty without. I truly enjoyed all the characters, except you know the bad guys because they are seriously evil.
In A Wolf’s Eyes is such an adventure of the characters trying to escape the king and getting injured and fighting. Oh yeah In A Wolf’s Eyes is jam packed with awesome fight scenes, I mean come on you’ve got warriors, soldiers, assassins, evil dogs, a griffin, an evil king, a magician, and a slave warrior. How could you not have awesome fight scenes?
All in all, I loved this book. I could not put it down for one second and I could read this book over and over again and it wouldn’t get old. A. Katie Rose did a fantastic job and I cannot wait to read the rest of her books!
Teaesr: I myself was unimpressed after hearing of him and even less so upon seeing him for the first time. Like many galdiators, Silas carried his brain in his muscles and thought himself invincible.
