I really don't know what to expect when I started reading this. Strangely enough, werewolves are not high on my list of favourite supernaturals but after reading this I totally get the trials and tribulations of being a werewolf. It's like the author has an inherent ability to get into the skin of one and we get to see how a werewolf really live.
Caught in between being an animal and a lost human, made Talia questioned herself every day. She was reluctantly attacked by wolves and therefore had to leave her family behind when she had to deal with her apparent transformation. Forced to live in a pack that she doesn't feel a sense of belonging to, Talia was shocked to discover a lone wolf who had the power to retain human form during full moon.
I really love how the author is able to depict the reality, grittiness and hardships of living in a werewolf pack since werewolves are not superficially glamorous or even vain like the vampires.
Bonds of Fenris is more about the tale of a werewolf journey towards self discovery. It's heart breaking, realistic potrayal certainly left quite an impression in my mind.
