Book Review: Kingdom of Wolves by Amelia Shaw


Book Description

Under the guise of protection, the High Warlock of our coven keeps us hidden away within a secret realm at the heart of the forest. But I know a lie when I see one. Our supposed safety is no more than a gilded cage… and I was never meant to be caged.

I break free, escaping into the greater woods where I happen upon two cursed, but impossibly gorgeous wolf shifters. Eager to show them my world, I unknowingly lead them into a trap—and directly into the clutches of the High Warlock.

Overwhelmed by guilt and mortified by the High Warlock’s true plans for the wolves, I devise a daring escape for these two wild men who have captured my heart. My soul yearns for them both, and the very thought of having to choose between them makes me sick.

I swear to help them lift the curse afflicting their pack if they’ll help me escape the hidden prison I’ve called my life…

My Review

Xander and Kyle belong to a pack of werewolves that haven't had a female birth in years. After finding out that their pack might have been cursed by a witch because of their aloof leader, they go in search of the witch in the hopes she will lift the curse. 

Instead they come across Monique, a witch who lives in the village where the witch they are looking for used to live. Monique takes them to the high warlock and things go bad from that point on. The high warlock is the sister of the witch they are looking for and he agrees to help them if they give him some of their blood because his sister is nowhere to be found. I knew right away that was a bad idea. The high warlock gave villain/evil vibes right away. The high warlock has ulterior motives for just about everything he does so Monique knows she has to get these new guys out of her village and away from him. 

Xander and Kyle both know soon after meeting Monique that she is their mate. They don't know how they're going to share being her mate but they will have to find a way if she will have them both. She wants to get away from her village anyway so it really doesn't take much convincing to get her to agree. But all three of them are in danger and they'll have to find a way out of it. 

This book was so boring in sections that it took me a while to read because I kept putting it down. Then it ended on a cliffhanger which was really disappointing. 

I give this book 2 out of 5 stars.
