Review: Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis

Prince of Wolves
The Grey Wolves #1
Kindle Edition, 230 pages
Published June 29th, 2011
Amazon | B&N

Jacque Pierce was just an ordinary 17-year-old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two weeks of their summer are going to get a lot more interesting.

From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis lupus, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul.

The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas.

Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane's mate and complete the bond between them?

Reese's Reviews:
Prince of Wolves has been on my TBR pile for a long time. Sadly when I finally got to read it the story was subpar at best. I thought the blurb was interesting, but I could tell from the first couple pages this book was going to be less than I had expected.

Jacque and her two friends are excited about for the summer when across the street a foreign exchange student moves in with their neighbors. The minute they see each other it’s instant attraction. Fane is a werewolf and came to the US because he had a feeling. Fane and Jacque are meant to be together, but forces beyond them are tearing them apart. Fane encounters another werewolf and Alpha who has claimed Jacque as his own.

So the first indication this book was just not for me was the dialogue. Seriously we are talking awkward up in here. It was like the author was trying to be “hip” when what came across was just weird. The way the characters’ talk was just weird like when the characters would say “ya” or “naw” or “most def” it’s super informal.

Jacque and her two friends Sally and Jen are not very likable. Actually, none of the characters were. Jacque and her friends act like they’re 11 years old instead of about to graduate high school. Fane and Jacque are the definitions of awkward relationship. The characters were just very immature for people who were supposed to be mature I guess. Fane and Jacque are constantly going back and forth between wanting to be with each other and finding things to break them apart- from page to page they go back and forth.

The alternating POV was subpar at best. Sometimes it would switch mid-chapter or sentence without warning. Maybe I just didn’t care for the characters as much as I wanted.

Overall poor execution, poor dialogue, and poor writing. Everything was a bust with this story for me.

Quinn is an award winning author who lives in beautiful Western Arkansas with her husband, three sons, Nora the Doberman, and Phoebe the Cat (who thinks she is a ninja in disguise). She is the author of thirteen novels, including the USA Today bestseller, Fate and Fury. Quinn is beyond thankful that she has been blessed to be able to write full time and hopes the readers know how much all of their support means to her. Some of her hobbies include reading, exercising, crochet, and spending time with family and friends. She gives all credit of her success to God because he gave her the creative spirit and vivid imagination it takes to write.
