Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

A Darkness of Wolves by Nicole Bea deals with the horrible dark issues of mood disorders. Eighteen-year-old Wynrie Lowe just doesn't understand what is going on in her world with her emotions being so unpredictable; first being on an extreme high, then a deep low. Could it be because of what happened That Weekend? Or maybe because her best friend Dawson just left for military duty. Ezra couldn't understand her and their relationship wasn't going anywhere. She hears her mom and grandma talking about her needing help but she wasn't that bad, was she?

Darkness of Wolves was a very good and informative book to read about what happens to someone with a mood disorder. It was so difficult to read how Wynrie suffered from her condition, and especially when no one understood. Watching the day to day struggles of this young woman broke my heart for the many young people who may be suffering with this disorder in real life. Author Nicole Bea does an excellent job of detailing each scene in the perfect way to show the effects of what mood issues does to people. I think it is also a warning and a guide to help loved ones and friends recognize this issue for what it truly is and try to get the person help. If you enjoy reading about these issues, Darkness of Wolves would be a great place to start reading about how disruptive mood disorders can be, and it could be the encouragement you need to find help. Overall, this is a really good read. I enjoyed the realistic, well created  characters and watching them develop over the course of the book. And it was nice seeing the family support Wynrie needed so badly.
