Mated to the Werewolf King by Alena Des #Review #alenades #shifter

Dive into a universe filled with magical creatures, from demons, “ifrits”, and werewolves to nymphs, witches, and superpowers-wielding entities. A must for fantasy and romance readers alike!

When Annabelle discovers that she is not the true daughter of the Alpha in her pack, her world, as she knows it, comes crashing down and she finds herself running to hide from the tyrannical Demon Lord who is hellbent on finding her.

Seeking protection, she flees to the court of the Werewolf King. He’s arrogant, stubborn and discerning of her very being, but willing to defend her… for now.

Will the Werewolf King yield to the Demon Lord’s ultimatum and give her to the enemy or will she be the cause of a looming war between the two species?

More importantly, what does the Demon Lord want with Belle? She’s only a werewolf… isn’t she?

All teenagers have complicated love lives and none believe them to be more complicated than the teenager living through it. Annabelle, AKA “Belle”, has a more complicated love life than most eighteen year-olds. To begin with, Belle is a werewolf with a really puny wolf form. She finds out that the reason her wolf form is so puny when her family members’ aren’t is because she’s adopted and now the Demon Lord is starting a war over her. Like many other paranormal romance novels involving shapeshifters, the concept of the fated mate plays a very central role to the story. Belle, who wants nothing more than to find her mate (and what eighteen year old doesn’t, really, werewolf or not), finds out that she is the mate to all of the leaders of the various forms of preternatural creature. The Werewolf King of the title, Keith, wants nothing to do with this and believes Belle to be a witch who has cast some sort of spell over him that mimics the mate pull. And, from there, things go on a roller coaster ride.

 

My main complaint about the book is that there was too much going on, and it muddied the story a bit. Belle gets passed from camp to camp as the paranormal leaders make their attempt at fully mating her and the action gets more and more chaotic. I’m not entirely sure what sort of constructive criticism I can offer, however, to facilitate streamlining the action into a less chaotic story. In a lot of ways the story reminded me of a piece of knitted fabric with a couple of dropped stitches and the wrong tug could send it unraveling.

 

Lest it seem like I’m only complaining (and why the hell would I give a 4 rating to a book with so many problems), I really did enjoy the story. The world that the author has created is interesting but does not stray too far from the conceits one expects in paranormal romance. The chemistry between Keith and Belle is potent and the sex scenes are hot! I am very interested to see where the story goes from here and whether or not the author grows into her craft.
