    I enjoyed the novel event in the book even though I hate to cry. She handled the characters and action well while keeping the interaction realistic. What a great start to a series.
  • Prince of Wolves, Book 1 The Grey Wolves Series on Sep. 21, 2012

    Very interesting! Having lived in Texas, I enjoyed it alot. The characters were well written and the action set a good pace. The book is a good read for all ages.
  • Blood Rites, Book 2 The Grey Wolves Series on Sep. 22, 2012

  • Forget Me Not on Sep. 25, 2012

    I really enjoy the characters in this series. I have read them all and I am looking forward to more. The only problem I found was the incorrect use of words (Out of place), bad punctuation (sometimes out of place), and the names of characters used in scenes where they didn't belong. I hope the next book gets a better last read through.
  • Just One Drop, Book 3 The Grey Wolves Series on Sep. 25, 2012

    I love Jen's spunk. She is a delight to read. Do a really good last edit to catch errors and you have a winner.

    A really good read. The characters are spirited and appealing. The action sets a good pace. I can't wait for the next book to find out what happens next.
