  • First in a new series

    Wow!!! This is not at all what I was expecting. You think you know Ward’s writing but this is different , fresh and shocking. I’ve been a fan since the first BBD book and some are way better than others. This book is in a whole different category. We’ve had hints of this coming for a long time and it did not disappoint one bit. Lydia Susi is all about protecting her wolves but a lot of strange things have been happening. Her grandfather taught her well. She sees things others don’t. If you wanted your future to come to you, you went alone into the forest in the veil, during that sacred transition of night into morning. Daniel Joseph is a drifter. When he comes to the Wolf Institute for a job there attraction is immediate but forbidden. He’s a mystery she wants to solve. Reality is like a coin. It has a front and a back, and you can only see one side at a time.” We do get glimpses of the Brothers that weave right into the storyline. This is gonna be a great series. A little bit slow at the start but not for long. The ending just makes me want the next book now.

  • Full of surprises

    What. Was. THAT?! Lydia was a behaviorist and I loved her passion in protecting the wolves and their habitat. Although her impulsiveness, rash judgments and curiosity could be annoying, these traits also helped to move the story along and feed into the questions and secrets surrounding the plot. And while I'm no fan of women who know what they want, but play that they don't, I enjoyed the little flirting games she played with the hero. Daniel was the character who would definitely raise some eyebrows. There was obviously more to him than met the eye and I still don't quite understand who he was supposed to be. His cover story of being a drifter and handy man made me question everything. What were his motives? Who did he work for? The fact that he was sexy was an interesting bonus! Xhex was also featured and I practically drooled for every glimpse of John Matthew!! Seriously, what is going on with Xhex? What do the Wolven have to do with her present, her traumatizing experience with the labs, and her murky future? Claimed was far more than your run-of-the-mill paranormal romance. It held mystery and intrigue and suspense. I did find that it was slow to start, however, when things started to pick up, I couldn't put it down. Here I am at the end and I'm devasted to learn that I have to wait until next summer to find out what will happen next! For lovers of The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Claimed is a must-read! And if you're anything like me, it will inspire you to give the entire series a re-read just to be able to dive back into this dark, deadly, enchanting, and binge-worthy world again!

  • Not what I was expecting

    Lydia Susi heads the Wolf Study Project and is disturbed when some of the wolves show up sick and poisoned. Lydia suspects the owners of a big new hotel on the edge of the reserve’s property, and she aims to stop them. Meanwhile, her director has been behaving oddly and now he isn’t even showing up at work. The WSP has been operating on a shoestring budget and they need to hire a new handyman. With the director MIA Lydia takes it upon herself to hire Daniel Joseph, the handsome and mysterious drifter. Claimed wasn’t anything I expected. I kept trying to figure out what was going on, where the plot going, and it seemed to take forever to get anywhere. Yes, it’s a mystery of sorts, but that it wasn’t front and center, and I didn’t feel like there was a sense of urgency to solve it from Lydia or that she was in any kind of immediate danger. It seemed to be more of Daniel and Lydia getting to know each other, and slowly, very slowly falling for each other. There isn’t any paranormal in much of the book, even though it’s part of a series named “Lair of the Wolven”. There wasn’t anything shapeshifter/wolven to the plot, other than natural wolves in the preserve, until the very end. I was surprised by the reveal, I thought it’d be the other way around. I was thrown by the addition of the Black Dagger/Xhex chapters not really getting the connect to what was going on. Yes, the labs, but I think it’d would’ve been fine to leave out the BDB part. Honestly, it was a little distracting and took away from the main story, but maybe that’s because I haven’t kept up with the BRB series. Maybe someone who’s been reading every book from the BDB might understand the connections and feel differently. With all that said, Claimed managed to hold my attention enough to finish it even though it’s a long book (525 pages), and I have no problems with pulling a DNF if I’m not enjoying the story. I wouldn’t say this ended in a cliffhanger, more a “to be continued” sort of situation. I was left with a lot of unanswered questions by the end. Hopefully, we get a more focused plot and answers in the next book, which I plan on reading.

  • "One step at a time. Cut the impossible into piece

    "One step at a time. Cut the impossible into pieces" I was so sure I knew who was what and behind what deeds Crackling Crackers was I wrong - that doesn't happen often I am usually pretty good with puzzles Lydia, our heroine, is heck bent on protecting her wolves and proving the hotel is responsible for the recent rash of poisonings. She keeps hitting walls each way she turns and just for chits and giggles the universe has decided to upend everything at the wolf sanctuary. Daniel is just passing through and needs work - nothing long-term - just enough to get him by until the urge to move on calls on him. He has his reasons for drifting - Nothing has ever called to him for permanence though like the fiercely sweet Lydia But fate has other plans for him Doesn't hurt to indulge a little though I am excited to see where this new series takes us - I am a big fan of the paranormal genre and Ward's writing. I was a touch disappointed that this first episode was so heavy with foundation building and character introduction. The story was solid but I wanted more when it came to our couple. I felt like I had more questions than answers - yes I get that it was probably intended to read that way. Definitely a me thing. This ends on a bit of a to be continued quick note - the story does interconnect with the sympaths mainly Xhex for a couple of scenes. I think her past may be part of Daniel's future... IDK
