The Wolf's Torment by Stephanie Burkhart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
First, I would like to thank the author Stephanie Burkhart for giving me this book for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book, the characters were all well developed. This story covered a lot of things, family issues and learning to deal with them, death, love, loss. Mihai was very mature, his father was dying and he had to prepare to become King, also had many responsibilities his father tasked him with that he wanted done. It also had been arranged by his father for him to marry Theresa, her family was very protective of her. There is just so much to the story, I felt for the characters. Viktor started out Mihai best friend and confidant and after being bitten by a werewolf both of their lives are turned upside down and their friendship starts to unravel at the seams. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series to find out what happens next.
