Some evil wants to live forever. Ten years ago a witch sacrificed Britta Orchid's family and turned her into a werewolf. Selena Stone's spell failed, and she was never seen again. Until now.
Officer Aaron Labaye has discovered Selena's remains in the house where Britta's family died, and dragged Britta back to Louisiana to aid the investigation, hoping her past will break the case.
Britta has a hard time resisting the handsome rookie, especially when he shows her a new drawing by her murdered little brother: Britta in her wolf-form. As an unseen hand sets events in motion, Britta has to help Labaye dig into the murders old and new. The bloodthirsty ghost of her brother, a jealous member from her pack, and a former friend with a serious prejudice against wolves all stand to stop Britta as she fights to finally get the truth about that night ten years ago.
But, as she looks harder than ever into her own dark past, Britta will confront more than just her own demons as she fights for peace for herself and for her family. She can't hide anymore, but must find her place in a world she's avoided – and discover what it truly means to be a wolf.
I’m really into werewolves at the moment, so this book came along at the perfect time! It’s a brilliant start to a new series, ticking all the genre boxes that I enjoy and offering well-drawn characters to root for.
I love a book that blends my favourite genres, and THROW ME TO THE WOLVES does it brilliantly. It’s the perfect blend of crime, horror and paranormal romance, and the shifting tone kept my attention.
The voice and characterisation are really strong. The dual narrators work really well, and even the most minor characters are fleshed out and believable. I really liked the two main characters and the relationship between them.
I had a lot of fun reading this book, but also felt that it dealt with difficult subjects, like grief, empathetically. I can’t wait to see where this series goes!
