Review by: Mike White on Aug. 18, 2017 :
This story had some potential. The writer could have done something different with the world and the characters. I still think it could have been edited and polished a lot more than it was. I don't care about a few grammatical errors, especially if they're just typos. Those don't usually make the story harder to read.

However, in this case, the technical flaws actually did make this fairly straightforward story harder to read that it should have been, and that's an issue.

I would also like to tell something to all werewolf writers: there is no rule that says that werewolves have to mate for life and be creepily bonded to people that they barely know and only love on a bizarre pseudo-biological chemical level.

Really. I feel like every werewolf story written in the last ten years seems to operate under that assumption. It's as if the writers think that this is as fundamental to werewolf stories as the transformation part. It isn't.

This story honestly doesn't have much to it other than that trope, and that's a big problem.

The strong macho jerk and the insecure girl who barely know each other and become obsessed with each other anyway can't have compelling conversations. They don't know each other well enough for that and they don't have enough in common for that. In a dialogue-heavy romance story, this just means that they're going to gush about each other a lot.

This setup is painfully reactionary. The urban fantasy genre is full of competent heroines saving the world. The paranormal romance genre is full of insecure heroines giving up their lives for horrible macho men. Someone needs to write a crossover where urban fantasy heroines save paranormal romance heroines.

I like romance, but if all it does is affirm macho, sexist values, it's actively bad.

The idea that you will die when your partner dies is horrifying, not romantic. Even if you love your partner, living in fear that they will die and take you with them would poison the relationship. The fact that some people actually make this wish fulfillment is a huge problem.

Werewolf stories don't have to be like this, and I have no idea why people think that they should.

Review by: Amanda Gillespie on Jan. 30, 2016 :
So... I really enjoyed the witty, sarcastic comebacks from the girls because I am from the South and they just made sense. Also, they are sayings I would expect to hear spouting from the mouths my own teens. I enjoyed the storyline though it is a little overused and the content didn't really have anything new to offer.
That being said, the lovey-dovey, I'll love you until the end of time, have my baby even though I just met you three days ago...(not really, but you get what I'm saying) was a little hard to swallow. There was very little build up before the climatic fight for your life scenario and then it just kind of fizzled from there. The potential is definitely there, but it just didn't land in the bullseye, yet.
I'm a very critical reader and the grammatical errors were slightly distracting as well. With a good proofread and some tweaks in the he said, she told, he asked type conversations, this could be a 4.5+ rating. As it stands and as I can't give half stars, I'll have to rate this a 3 for meh, I can take it or leave it.

I guess I am not the target group of this book, since I am an adult.
This is like the sugarfloss version of twilight without vampires.
Nice is the good friendship between Jacque, Sen and Sally. I am not sure if it good to talk about "realistic" in a book about werewolves, but what I missed is a bit friction between the characters.
Only understanding and friendship between the "good ones" the only one which are causing trouble are the "black hats".

Furthermore I didn't like the very conservitive image of the genders. Males are volatile, want to protect the females and the females have to moderate the male temper. Oh myyy... back to the 50ies!
Also the image of sex and marriage: It is good that sex is portrayed as something which shouldn't be done lightly.
But is it ok to bind yourself for centuries, when you are 17? In this book it is ok to do so provided you are married.
So only 2 stars from me. However if you are looking for fantasy for conservative girls you will haev fun.
P.S.: Never ever ride a motorcycle in flip flops!

This book has characters you'll fall in love with from the start and the humour and storyline create a book that will make you laugh out loud, you won't want to put it down. If you are planing on reading this series I would strongly recommend it, I have read this series and the spin off series multiple times and enjoy them just as much each time. One of my favourite authors :)

Review by: Jonel Boyko on Dec. 15, 2013 :
This novel takes you on a very intense and wild ride. Loftis brings this story forward with her fun loving writing style that draws you in. Although this is in essence a supernatural novel Loftis makes it easy to relate to and visualise. I also appreciate how she defines her version of werewolf without stepping out of her story proper. All of the background information is worked into the action and reaction of the story itself.

Loftis has created a cast of very approachable characters. It was very unique watching the 2 main characters coming from such different backgrounds trying to work together and become one. The switching of perspectives between the two main characters allows you to know them both intimately. I also appreciate how Fane’s Romanian tongue and culture make their way into the story and how Loftis ensures all is clear without breaking the forward flow of the story. The supporting cast in this novel was priceless. I absolutely loved the best friends. The dialogue was also absolutely priceless. It was perfect. It helped all of the characters become much more authentic and real.

Overall? I read the entire novel in a single sitting. If my TBR pile weren’t a mile high I would have dove right into the next novel in the series. This novel doesn’t quite end in a cliffhanger but it’s a very open ending that leaves you wanting more.

Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Review by: Travis Siegel on Oct. 31, 2013 :
This was an excellent book, but honestly, a proofreader/editor could do wonders for readability. There's tons of typos, gramatical errors, and missing words from sentences, I almost gave up several times when reading this one. However, I did stick with it, and I'm glad I did. It truly is an excellent story, and despite the writing errors, I'm planning on continuing the series. I only hope the rest of the books are better edited than this one was. If this book hadn't been free, I'd have been extremely upset, and likely not purchased anything else by this author. But, since it was free, I don't feel cheated, and so as a result, will likely give the second book in the series a try. If it is better edited than this one, then I'll continue on, if it's as bad as this one, that will be the last book I'll ever read by this author.
In summary, 5 stars for storyline, 1 star for gramitical content. If typos, grammar, and sentence structure aren't things that bother you when they crop up, then you'll love this book, no doubt. If these things do bother you, the book is still worth reading, but it's a whole lot less enjoyable as a result.

Review by: Maegan Ryles on March 26, 2013 :
I loved this series, but I warn you it's intense. This first book starts out by hooking you soooo deeply that you are just going to have to sit back and enjoy the ride. I read all six books in two and a half days if that helps. Anyway, I just love the concept of the mate in these books, it's so sweet and so deep, I've never seen an author portray love that way, the way it's supposed to be and we all hope it is. So my advise is to grab a chair, get ready to perch on the end of it quite often, then wrap yourself in a blanked while you swoon and remind yourself to breathe, and go for it! Also a good cup of coffee will do wonders....Oh and book 7 hurry up!

Review by: Angie F on Jan. 19, 2013 :
Prince of Wolves introduces a narrative style that I wasn't sure if I was going to like or not. It's alternates between Jacque and Fane's perspectives, but instead of the story continuously moving forward, several chapters are told twice: once by Jacque and once by Fane. This of course makes the story unnecessarily longer (it's still pretty short though), but we get the full story from both sides. I thought it was going to annoy to me to have to read every situation twice, but it didn't. I actually quite liked the "he said, she said" since it's two totally different perspectives and it stopped about half way through the book.

The story is pretty fun, although it's the typical werewolf bond, soul-mate type story, where the girl has no clue what she is until she meets the sexy stranger. I don't read too many werewolf books, so it hasn't grown old for me and I was still able to enjoy it. It moves at a good pace. There always seems to be something happening, but the main conflict doesn't appear until halfway through. Jacque's friends also provide some great comic relief through out.

I have one major complaint: the dialogue is awful! Sometimes it's very stiff and formal, but I kind of expect that from Fane, since he's royalty and English isn't his first language. Coming from everyone else though, it just feels awkward. But Jacque and her friend's also use the most horrific slang! It's so outdated and irritating! I hadn't heard most of these expressions in over a decade, if I'd even heard them before at all. It was just a little over-the-top at times.

Overall, Prince of Wolves has a pretty good story, but it could greatly benefit from more editing, especially in the dialogue department. There's also some annoyance whenever Fane or his family speak Romanian. For some reason the English translation is in parentheses, but then the next paragraph will have Fane translating to the non-Romanian speakers anyway. It was fairly awkward to read. I have the next two books, so I'll be continuing the series. I just hope the writing has improved.

Review by: Beverly S on Sep. 13, 2012 :
My thoughts: I love this series! From the very first page I was "IN" - first it was the characters, then the story. Quinn Loftis has created characters that you want as your own friends and family.I couldn't put it down. Although this is the first book in the series, I read it second - so I already knew I would love it. It was fantastic to get the beginning of what I already knew to be a great read with endearing characters, a fast-paced action packed story line and just enough romance!

Review by: Hillary Curran on Aug. 12, 2012 :
This book was really enjoyable. It takes place over just a few days making for a really easy read, and though we go over some of the same events between two points of view, it’s surprisingly didn’t feel redundant at all. For the most part we only see from Jacque’s point of view or Fane’s, but every so often a pertinent character, such as Jacque’s mother, will have a little paragraph to put their two cents into a situation.

One of the best parts is that all the characters acted their age. As a teenager we’re full of hormones and walk the fine line between adult maturity and childish immaturity. Both are depicted in the story and made for a very realistic feel. The girls are so feisty that I couldn’t help but laugh out loud with them. They’re all very snarky, it’s so great! Fane’s adoration for Jacque is so romantic and sweet that you’ll melt.

A light hearted read, despite the life or death conflict, Prince of Wolves is a fun, yet emotional read. It reminded me of Significance by Shelly Crane with how connected the couple is and just how sweet they are together. I recommend it to any YA paranormal fan. It’s even a tad educational, as you might even get a little lesson in Romanian *wink*.

Review by: DFournier on April 17, 2012 :
I found this book to be very enjoyable and spent a lot of time either chuckling or outright LMAO. The way the 4 main character (yes, 4) interacted when things weren't serious, was hilarious. I look forward to reading the next book in the series "Blood Ties".
A note to the Editor and Author; you need to hire better proof readers. There were 3 scenes in the book were a character would say or do something and it was attributed to a different character or one that wasn't even there. Also, there were a lot of instances where a word was used immediately before and after another word (ex. have been have) or the "in" was use instead of "on".

I already read the second book so I can't say too much without spoiling it!. I love this series. The humour of Jacque's best friends keeps me in stitches. The love is evident between Jacque and Fane! There is a definite strength in family and friends. I would recommend everyone buy this if you like paranormal or strong family bonds. I would love to have Fane as my mate!! The second book gets even better!!

Review by: Celina Pulnik on Jan. 08, 2012 :

I have to let you know before I begin my review that I am handling this one a bit differently. Typically I would read the first book, post the review and then read the second book and do the same. The conundrum I ran into is as soon as I finished Prince of Wolves I couldn't keep my mind focused on anything else because I knew Blood Rites was waiting to be read. So this review is for both books at once.
For the last 2 days I have been introduced to and grown to love the characters created by Quinn Loftis. I have spent hour after hour consumed by Fane and Jacque's love story, Jen and Sally's humor as well as swooning over the arrival of Decebel and I have to say I was truly sad when I came to the end of Blood Rites (Book 3 will be released in February 2012). The Grey Wolves series is one that given the chance will grow in the hearts of many readers alike.
Both books give you points of view from all the characters involved so you never feel left out on how any one character is feeling at the current events. And I have to say as an indie writer you can see Quinn's writing improve with every page turned. I was truly surprised that these books could captivate me to the point that nothing else seemed to matter as I was reading. If I had to compare any current books on the market to this series, I would have to say they have the type of humor from Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine and the action/romance from the Mercedes Thompson series by Patricia Briggs.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves the paranormal romance!
