Title:The Wolf at His Door (The Runes Trilogy #1)

My Review:

 It’s been quite a while, since I have done any reviews here, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been reading. If you are aware of my Goodreads account (if not, where have you been all this time, just kidding) I have posted a review for “The Wolf at His Door”. Since my review was  short, and I think this wonderful book deserves more than just a paragraph, I want to write something here.

First of all, this isn’t a book for paranormal- romance lovers, I am sorry. This book is unique, and by saying that I mean this book is a perfect blend between horror, action, a little romance, and everyday life including normal society problems. When I write reviews, I never reveal anything about the story, because that is the blurb’s task.

This book was something new for me, and surprisingly I enjoyed reading this. The characters were real and not cheesy or cliché. You can notice that the author has talent, because the book just flows very well. Also I like the fact that the author hasn’t tried to hide the monster nature. There is a werewolf out there. And a werewolf is a huge, hungry monster, who will just skin you alive and eat you. This story has a horror feel, so read at your own risk. Of course, Dracula’s number one fan (that’s me) couldn’t do anything else, but enjoy a good horror story.

This book deserves five stars!

Recommended for people who love mysteries, horror, paranormal, but also a bit of romance and a sense of reality.
