Release Date-10th September 2018
Kindle Edition-277 Pages
When Kellan, Wolf King of the North, meets his fated mate, she is only a child. He immediately brokers a betrothal and, on the day after her 20th birthday, whisks her away to his castle in the Northland. Kellan is elated, believing he has everything he has ever wanted. His new wife, Nora, doesn’t quite share the same sentiment.
Before Kellan has time to court her, Nora is attacked. An ancient brotherhood refuses to allow an heir of one kingdom onto the throne of another. All four factions in the land of Imperium appear to be involved in a surreptitious struggle for power … while Nora hides a few secrets of her own.
***The Wolf King’s Bride is the first book in the Fate of Imperium Series. Each book is the story of a different king and his fated mate. While the three books do not have to be read in order, it is highly recommended.
I have never read anything by this particular before but as this sounded so intriguing on paper I decided to take a chance and have a stab at it.
I am always a trifle nervous when trying on a new writer for size what with the whole will we be a fit and am I going to like this; especially when I also have to also write a review at the end of my experience.
I am extremely happy to report that I loved “The Wolf Kings Bride” like a whole lot and I will definitely be sticking around to read the next instalment in this fascinating new fantasy series.
So, this is a stand-alone love story with an extremely heartfelt HEA.
Each book in this series is cleverly interwoven to feature at its centre a different couple but all threads are connected together to form a much larger overall picture.
Here in this first instalment, we are introduced to this exciting new paranormal fantasy world and we get to learn about the separate powerful factions that together make up the lands of Imperium.
Elementals, Wolves, Demons and vampires.
In “The Wolf Kings Bride” the story itself centres on Kellan Wolf King Of The North and his fated mate Nora; the daughter to Kind Edward king of the Elementals.
Almost instantly here I was invested in the larger picture.
Fabulous centre characters combined with romance, intrigue and action make this such an incredibly easy read to lose and immerse yourself in.
This story played out against such a rich creative backdrop assisting in the overall ambience almost transporting me away to a whole new dimension.
This in itself really helped to set the scene so splendidly here.
This has so much to offer in terms of content and I was so invested here that I managed to read this book in one complete sitting.
I adored Kellan; if I’m honest he was my favourite, he had just the right amount of adorability crossed with his Alpha tendencies and I was hooked line and sinker on his brash bashfulness.
Nora for the most part I liked; she did have some slight annoyances to her nature that bugged me at times but I overlooked this slightly as I really did devour everything else about this story.
She eventually did see the light and overcome this so all was good in the end.
I also really liked where we left things here and can’t wait to see what direction this series will take us next.
I believe next up we have Nora’s sister Eden and the Heartless King (King of the vampires) I really can’t wait.
This one gets a wholehearted seal of approval from moi, Ive been reading a lot of dark stories lately and it made such a delicious change to just kick back and feel the love for once and this is one tale that delivers on that softer emotion in spades but while still also managing to fulfil fully on all else.
Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC of “The Wolf King’s Bride (Fate of Imperium, #1)” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
