My content rating: YA (Nothing more than kissing, Some violence)

Sixteen-year-old werewolf princess Ashling Boru is different from other wolves–she was able to shift to a wolf at birth. Rather than bringing pride to her family, it brings fear, and she is sent to live in Ireland’s secluded countryside. Ashling’s reputation is further blackened when she refuses her betrothed, defying the ancient laws. When her pack’s oldest rivals begin to hunt her, she finds herself in the small town of York Harbor, Maine, far from everything she’s known.

When she crosses paths with dark and rebellious Grey Donavan, something ignites within her soul. There’s just one problem: Grey is human. Their instant connection turns into a passionate romance, and Ashling begins to believe she can create her own life outside of wolf laws. When she uncovers long-buried pack secrets that threaten to destroy all she holds dear, Ashling’s courage and tenacity are tested. Will she choose her deep and enduring love for Grey or will she follow Old Mother’s path to her destiny?

My content rating: YA (Nothing more than kissing, Some violence)

Werewolf princess Ashling Boru’s eighteenth birthday is only a year away, which means that she only has twelve months before she is claimed and fulfills her prophecy to unite the packs and lead her people. Her father decrees that her four suitors must fight in the Bloodrealms, the werewolves’ ancient underground fighting world, and the winner will have King Boru’s choice to win Ashling’s hand. The wolf laws are rigid and barbaric, and Ashling’s illicit love for Grey, if discovered, will mean his death. But when Ashling and Grey get trapped in the blood-soaked depths of the Bloodrealms, they find ancient horrors far greater than Ashling’s father’s rule.

With betrayal around every corner and old nemeses set to destroy Ashling, she is more divided than ever between the destiny she didn’t choose and the love that she did. To make matters worse, her decision will not only set the course of her future, but the future of her entire race.

Aurora Whittet’s Top Ten Addictions

1. My mom’s locket. She passed away 3 years ago and I wear that locket almost every day. Inside is a picture of me and my son that she used to wear.
2. Moleskine notebooks. I love love love them! I have one for sketching, one for book ideas and a third for my to-do-list.
3. Essential Oils. Anything citrus. Almost always in my purse.
4. My phone. Sad, but true. I use it to keep track of my emails, social media, my calendar and under extreme duress with my son we use it for the PBS app to watch the Wild Kratts.
5. This one only moms will understand, but I always have a pack of wipes in my car. They are great for boogers and spills. You just never know. So I always have them even though my son is way past diapers; they are just handy little things.
6. Dark, dark, dark chocolate. I love it a bit bitter. And I covet it.
7. Spotify app. I’m addicted to music. Though if I’m writing, I only play one song on repeat so it’s a tone, not a distraction.
8. Wacom pad for digital drawing.
9. My enormous set of 150 Prismacolor colored pencils. A pencil in every color. It’s like owning the rainbow.
10. Most importantly, my son. He’s my world and we have so very much fun coming up with activities to post on my blog themamavillage.com. And his laugh could cure anything bad in the world.

  1. danielle hammelef

    This is actually going to be a new genre for me–I love the idea of these books plus it’s a series, so that’s why i want to step into YA paranormal and give it a try. i may find this is my favorite.

  2. The Candid Cover

    I haven’t heard of this series before. It definitely sounds like it is an interesting paranormal series. Moleskin notebooks really are amazing. I enjoyed reading the interview responses as well. 🙂
