S. Young ~ War of Hearts ~ Book Review


War of Hearts cover.jpg

Thea Quinn has no idea what she is. All she knows is that her abilities have been a plague upon her life since she was a child. After years of suffering at the hands of a megalomaniac, Thea escaped and has been on the run ever since.

The leadership and protection of his pack are of the utmost importance to Conall MacLennan, Alpha and Chief of Clan MacLennan, the last werewolf pack in Scotland. Which is why watching his sister slowly die of a lycanthropic disease is emotional torture. When Conall is approached by a businessman who offers a cure for his sister in exchange for the use of Conall’s rare tracking ability, Conall forges an unbreakable contract with him. He has to find and retrieve the key to the cure: dangerous murderer, Thea Quinn.

Thea’s attempts to evade the ruthless werewolf are not only thwarted by the Alpha, but by outside dangers. With no choice but to rely on one another for survival, truths are revealed, intensifying a passionate connection they both fight to resist. At war with themselves and each other, Conall and Thea’s journey to Scotland forces them to face a heartrending choice between love and betrayal.


My Book Review:

So this is Samantha’s first delve into the PNR world, I was very intrigued by the blurb and with PNR being one of my favourite reads I just couldn’t resist…. glad I didn’t, this really was an excellent and addictive read, and quite a different take on things which made the read very interesting, the world she has built was very well done and I really enjoyed this. Even though its a standalone read, there is a lot of scope for more out of this world.

Conall is the Alpha and Chief of the last werewolf pack in Scotland, he loves his pack and his family, hating that he has to watch his sister suffer from a lycanthropic disease for which there is no cure. He is due to meet up with another pack from America and arrange to have a mate, a business dealing really to strengthen both packs, not something done for emotions.

Conall is contacted by a businessman who says he can cure his sister, but in order to do so must use his unique tracking skills to find and fetch back a young woman who has murdered the businessman’s wife and lots of other people since then. Proof of the cure is shown to Conall and he makes and unbreakable contract to retrieve her, anything to enable him to cure his sister.

Thea has been on the run for the past 6 years, living by any means possible in order to evade being caught by Him. She knows she is different from normal people, but she has no idea just what she is. She has special powers and she is strong and fast, killing people they send to capture her when necessary, but really just trying to stay alive and free. But when Conall turns up and captures her things take a different turn. She knows he has been sent to take her back, but others are also after her, and they end up fighting together to stay alive, learning to trust one another, and fighting their attraction for each other, which proves to be too much to resist.

A brilliant story line, action packed with a wonderfully strong heroine and and equally as strong Alpha male, they really were perfect for each other, their chemistry was very intense but was more along the slow burn lines, which didn’t detract from the story. I loved the world and the paranormals in there, the wolf shifters and their family and pack values and how they interacted with the human world, then you have the other paranormals like the vampires and witches, which we don’t learn an awful lot about, but this certainly leaves it open for more books in this world. Definitely worth the read whether your a hardcore PNR fan like me or not, I think you would really enjoy this and should give it a go.
