Reviewed by Anne Boiling for Readers' Favorite

The plot of The Wolf’s Torment centers around Mihil, the Crown Prince of Moldavia. This setting is the mid to late 1800s. Mihil’s mother was a witch. He was a child when he witnessed her death at the hands of Hebcuba, an evil witch. Both Mihil and his sister Sonia had the powers of witchcraft. Neither had ever explored their powers. Mihil introduced Sonia to his friend Viktor. It was love at first sight. The young couple was on their honeymoon when he was attacked and bitten by a werewolf. As a child Mihil and Theresa were pledged to marry. They slowly came to love each other. Her family was royal witches. Mihil began to research his powers. Viktor was losing control. The women vowed to stick by their husbands if they survive.

The Wolf’s Torment has it all, witches, werewolves, a vampire, princess and prince. This is paranormal romance at its finest. The plot begins leisurely and gradually builds to a climatic finish. There are several secondary plot threads but the author skillfully weaves them all together to create a tapestry of paranormal bordering on horror. It was excruciating to witness the pain and torment of Viktor. Hecuba and Bane were the villains. I was surprised when Bane went after Viktor. I suspected he would go after Mihil. I was disappointed at the unwise decisions of Theresa. Mihil was a strong character, willing to admit he did not have all the answers. I really liked Beatrice. I thought she would have been a better mate to Mihil. It was sad watching the King grow weaker and weaker.

I found The Wolf’s Torment to be an entertaining read. I truly cared about the characters. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
