Book Review: Forbidden Wolf by CR. Robertson


Book Description

When two immortal enemies give into their forbidden desires, their passion puts both of their lives on the line.

One a lycan, the other a vampire, Levi and Tasha’s very survival hinges on remaining sworn enemies. But one night changes everything, resulting in a relationship between the two. A relationship punishable by execution should either be caught.

Fueled by hate and inflamed by boundary disputes, their warring species will never accept their love. But just as Levi and Tasha plan their escape, a new danger emerges that threatens both of their worlds.

As the pair discover why their species have really been kept apart all these years, they soon realize their own secret may be the key to unlock the survival of their species. But if their passion is discovered by the wrong people, they might find themselves dead before they get the chance to save anyone.

My Review

Lycan's and vampires are at war. When vampires turn 18 they are required to fight in the war against the Lycan's for 20 years. They also get assigned into the breeding program so they can have as many vampire children to fight when they also turn 18 years old. Tasha is a vampire and is about to turn 18 years old and have to join the fight. She goes out at night to get some fresh air and runs into a Lycan who is still out after dark. Tasha bites him and in turn he bites her, each believing that the other's bite will kill them, they make an uneasy truce and decide to die together. Neither one was strong enough to make it back to their camps so they sit and talk as they get sicker and sicker, thinking they are going to die soon. 

But they make it through the night, not understanding what happened or how they could have been lied to their entire lives about how lethal the other's bite would be. After making it through the night, they find they are deeply attracted to each other and make plans to see each other for the few weeks they have free before they have to fight in the war. As they go off to war, they make a pact to end up together in 20 years after they have done their duty in the fight and they tell each other to do what they have to in order to make it back alive. I thought this was so sweet and sad at the same time. 

As the war rages on between their two species, Tasha and Levi realize something more sinister is going on and they find a new enemy to them both to fight. Somehow they will have to bring their two warring species together in order to fight the real enemy but the war between their people has been going on for so many years, it will take a miracle to get them to fight together in order to beat this new villain. 

Oh my goodness, this was such a good read. As I was reading the fight between their two species and how things were really going and how the people in charge on both sides were not being truthful about all the facts and using certain things to their own advantage, I got so mad for all of them. To fall for what is supposed to be your enemy and know that it would mean death if you're caught was just so sad. But this ended up being an action packed book and a great paranormal romance as well. I can't say enough great things about this and plan on reading the next book soon. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
