Blurb:
An attraction that threatens the future of the pack…

Spirited, stubborn, and deeply loyal wolf shifter, Sasha feels the pressure from her pack to claim another pureblood, yet no one is brazen enough to defy the elders and toy with her . . . no one besides a hotheaded half-breed.

Tabor, a rebellious outcast, is the hollow's only wizard shifter. Constantly overlooked despite his strengths, Tabor believes Sasha is as shortsighted as the rest of the pack until she proves there's more to her than a blindly obedient lapdog.

Unable to resist the proud and sensual pureblood, Tabor would risk everything to claim her. Despite her vanishing bloodline, Sasha can't resist the charismatic half-breed, even as the elders set her up to breed with another pureblood.

Predators are closing in, threatening the strength and stability of their pack, and there are shifters within Wolf Hollow willing to do anything to prevent the pair from mating.

Review: 

4/5 stars


Wolf Hollow by Nikki Jefford has a very interesting and original premise. A dystopian world where wolves live away from what’s left of society, and where they seemingly fight for survival against those humans, wizards, and other predators like the vulhenas.
I have to say that I was hooked from the first page. This is a fresh new take on the werewolves, and it had the promise of something more since it’s set in a dystopian world.
The world building for this particular story was very good, though I needed more explanation about the outside world, far away from the pack. I’m really hoping that we get to find out why the world is the way it is, and when the pack left society and joined the wild. Presumably at some point they must have lived among humans as it seems that they enjoy a few modern cons, since they don’t make their own clothes, and seemed to go on runs to get supplies from the abandoned houses.
As far as developing the story and characters, I loved the way Miss Jefford stuck to her rules and regulations and even though the story developed, a lot of this things were unchanged up to a point.

Pros:
  Amazing new take on the wolves and their pack
 Dystopian world mixed with the right dash of paranormal  
Strong female lead

Cons:
 The romance between the two leads was a bit too quick and insta (for my liking.)
  Lack of info about the state of the world and how it got there. I hope this is broached in the next books.
 Lack of info about the pack’s origins and where they came from.

     A bit of advice:

If you read this book on your phone, tablet etc, you run the risk of wanting to chuck that piece of technology at the wall a few times, due to certain characters that you’ll love to hate. 😊


In all, a very good read, can’t wait to read the second book in the series.
