She Wulf by Sheryl Steines


Pub Date: September 1, 2012
My Copy: eBook, 257 pages

Find this book on: Goodreads | Amazon | B&Nicon

Synopsis:
He came through the centuries to find her, the girl who could save them all. Annie Pearce runs through the streets of the city, chasing a demon, the likes she has never see before. As she works to find out where the demon came from, the Wizard Guard encounters something even more bizarre. A tenth century Viking.
When Annie gets sucked into the past, she must struggle with the knowledge of the prophecy that tells of her destiny. The one she must fulfill if she is to return home. What happens in the past will change the world.

 


I will start by saying that I did not care much for this book.  It is filled with action, and yet I found myself bored.  I can’t quite put my finger on why this is, because it is practically non-stop action scenes for the first few chapters and doesn’t slow down much after that.  But, still, I was bored through pretty much the entire novel.

I couldn’t connect with any of the characters, which made the story less interesting to me.  The characters are developed well enough, but I just didn’t find myself caring much about them or their lives.  The quality of writing is good, but I think it’s lacking in story-telling abilities.  It didn’t succeed in capturing my interest as it should have, considering the action-packed storyline.  It’s told in third person, which I am not a fan of, but each to his/her own.

I love the cover.  It encompasses the story quite well–the main heroin Annie shrouded in fire as she fights her way through the demons.  Overall, I did not enjoy this book.  I also found it a bit overkill on how it included all of the following: magic, wizards, witches, demons, vampires, and time travel–too much fantastical elements for one story, in my opinion.  Fans of third person narrative as well as all the elements just mentioned might like this book, if they don’t feel like I do (about it being overkill).  I, personally, just didn’t care for the book.

saves them all.
