Review: Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis

Official Synopsis

Jaque Pierce was just an ordinary 17 year old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two weeks of their summer was going to get a lot more interesting. From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis lupis, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul. The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas. Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane's mate and complete the bond between them?

Genre: YA paranormal romance
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I've been working on this one for a while and just decided to call it quits.

Short and sweet: Cool concept, poorly executed. Wolves are great, but there was too much description and explanation so I never had that urge to read on to learn more, because there was nothing more to learn.

This could have been a good story, but I thought it had WAY too much description. Too much description to the point where there was just no mystery to it. Nothing grasped my curiosity or attention because all my questions were answered by Jacque or Fane's thoughts the second the questions formed in my head. In books like this where a human is introduced to the supernatural world, I want to learn WITH them as they start piecing everything together, make my own predictions. I couldn't do that with this because the book is written from Jacque AND Fane's perspectives. Once the perspective switched to Fane's, the reason for everything that just happened in the last scene was told and for me, that got old fast. I think I would have kept reading it if it was solely from Jacque's perspective, because I would still be asking myself WHY and HOW.

All the writing errors, in the 34% of the book that I read, were distracting and that pulled me away from the story as well.

The one thing I did like was how weird Jacque and her friends were together. It was a smidge overdone, but I liked that the author made an effort to make memorable characters.
