Feral Cravings by Jenika Snow

Feral Cravings (Luecross Wolves, #1)Feral Cravings by Jenika Snow

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Writing: ★★★
Story: ★★★
Characters: ★★★

Overall rating: 3.0

This had the basis for a really good story... but as it was, it was rushed. Too rushed. I didn't even have time to get to know the characters. The whole story lacked any depth.

But this was meant to be a short story, it was meant to take the reader on a quick ride, and it delivered that.

I only wish that Ms. Snow would have slowed down a little, fleshed out a bit more of the characters, put this story idea into a longer book. So since I seem to be on the fence about it all, i'll split the difference and give it a 3 Star rating.

****4 "Revengeful" Stars****

What an amazing story! So intense! I love intense!!

Raze, also known as "818" is a prisoner in the Gulag, where he was taken as a little boy, an underground fighting ring where they fight to the death. Everyday of his life since he arrived there has been kill or be killed.

His past is wiped from his memory from the drugs that are constantly pumped into his body, but the forethought of another fighter had him carving the name of the person who put him there into the wall of his cell. It's the only thing he knows for sure when there is a chance for escape from the prison.

Arriving back in New York, Raze finds who he's looking for in an underground fight club. Alik Durov. He doesn't know how it is that Alik is responsible, but his gut and some vague memories that pop up in his mind at random times, tell him he is.

Kisa recognizes Raze as the boy from her childhood, the boy she was in love with and never got over. But how could it be?

To go any further into it in this review would cause spoilers, so I'm just going to point you to the blurb and then to Amazon and tell you that this is a must read if you enjoy a little bit of darkness in your reads!

Overall rating: 2.0

This book was just painful to be honest. I love a dark read, and I do mean dark, intense mindfucks, but this one just didn't hit the mark for me. So many times I really wanted to quit and mark it down as a DNF.. but it was so short that I just kept going. And the more I read, the longer the book seemed.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Writing: ★★★★
Story: ★★★★
Characters: ★★★★★

Overall rating: 4.3

Breaker has managed a few things in his life. He had rules. He didn't mess with families and did not, under any circumstance, deal in women.

Until Lex.

Until Alex.

Breaker has managed to stay out of Lex's way, take care of his own business and not get caught up in any of Lex's dirty deals.

Until now.

Now he has a woman locked up in an abandoned, gutted, train car. A woman he may have to do everything he's vowed *not* to do to a woman, including killing her.

But Breaker doesn't have a choice. Lex has his best friend, Shooter, and if Breaker doesn't take care of this job, Lex will kill Shooter.

Alex is a strong female lead. I liked her, I liked her smart mouth, attitude, and sass.

Breaker and Alex were great together and their story kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the story.

This book flowed well, I enjoyed it and have found a new author to follow!
