Werewolves of the Mountain by Abigail Raines

Posted January 4, 2019 by Marsha in Shifter Series / 0 Comments

Millie has her eyes on the prize: taking her blossoming fashion line and turning it into an empire. Life has other plans, however, and a phone call informing her that her father has passed away brings her back to her hometown of St. Neuri.

St. Neuri has changed, with a fog that settles across the town every night, people vanishing and turning up dead, and rumors of wolves hunting in the surrounding woods. Millie doesn’t recognize her hometown anymore – nor the men that reside in it.

A chance encounter leads to her to meet Liam, a dashing bad boy with a smile that shatters her heart neatly in half. She cannot deny the pull she feels for this mysterious stranger. But as the secrets of St. Neuri pull her in deeper, towards legends of werewolves that could very well be real, Millie realizes that not everything is as it seems, including Liam.

Titles in the Werewolves of St. Neuri series include:  Werewolves of the Mountain – Werewolf Divide – The Billionaire Werewolf –

My Rating:  4.5 stars

Werewolves of the Mountain begins the Werewolves of St. Neuri series by Abigail Raines.  I found Liam and Millie’s story intriguing that bring images of old-time horror movie werewolves more to mind than the shifters I’m addicted to.  Actually, Liam is more a combination of both images, and as we’re learning about his pack, their lore and how they exist in this modern world this story begins a fascinating journey for me.  Although I’m not a huge fan of the one person point of view (I much prefer to get into both the hero and the heroine’s heads), it did work well for this introduction to the series.  We as readers are kept as much in the dark as Millie is, and that only intensifies the feeling of a spooky night in the woods with the fog rolling in… and we just know there is something really bad in that fog.

I enjoyed stepping into this world, and it’s one that I’ll return to.  Millie and Liam have obstacles to overcome both in their personal lives and in the safety of their hometown.  We meet a very few secondary characters that may have their own stories in the future.  The ones I did meet, and one very bad dude, have me interested in what happens next.  In all, Werewolves of the Mountain has a different feel to it, yet one that draws the reader in with intriguing bits and pieces and well defined characters.  If you love Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance, then you’ll want to check out this series for yourself.  You may just have a new series and a new author to follow.

I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
