'Guardian of Werewolf Keep' by Nhys Glover -Review

‘Guardian of Werewolf Keep’ by Nhys Glover is a very heartfelt read. Young Phil –short for Philomena- must travel to the lonely end of the moors and live among werewolves for three months, as stated by her father’s will, in order to receive her inheritance -Her father’s legacy, which answers many questions regarding their estranged relationship.

While there were many unexpected pleasures, there were a few things that I did not care for, such as the instant chemistry between Phil and Byron (the guardian). It is easy to understand how Byron could become immediately captivated with Phil after being surrounded by grief and burden for many years. Though, with Phil’s background as a simple worker surrounded by men who thought they were too good for her, I would have expected Phil to react firstly by throwing up her learned guards rather than surrendering to her lust. But as the story progresses, the ups and downs of their relationship feel very sincere and realistic, as does their love. (After all, Byron is a genuine, sweet hottie. Who’s gonna toss HIM back? ;)

Also, I felt that the letter from Phil’s deceased father disclosed too much information. Rather, it would have been more natural for Phil to learn these things while staying in his room and investigating. In letter form, the information sank in as fact, but did not garner much of an emotional response from the reader.

However, the positives far outweigh the negatives. I loved the solitary feel of the moor and the utterly fantastic way that Glover brings the residents and the Keep, its self, alive. It is a very unique experience. Though readers meet the Keep and the residents by way of Phil’s initial presumptions, Glover makes sure that the way the residents view themselves and their predicament are equally explored. Because this information is so intricately layered throughout the book, the entire storyline is richer. I honestly enjoyed all of the characters and look forward to Glover’s spin-off story about Jasper. (But I have to say that my favorite character is Charlotte. :)

If you are looking for a fast-paced, action-packed read, this story is not for you.

‘Guardian of Werewolf Keep’ is perfect for readers who enjoy love stories with substance and a classical supernatural touch.

It Lurks In The Shadows

Sinner, debuting February 28th, 2020, is a memorable vampire tale that will pick at your phobias like a dying fingernail.

It's campy and fun and gory as hell. The characters will leave their marks on you with kickass one-liners and realistic, lovable qualities. You will want to keep reading even as your brain is screaming, "Bad eyeballs! No more!"

But Sinner addresses some serious issues. It truly is 'fiction with meaning.' Honestly, it was tough to write, at times. Loss/grief, addiction/overdose, depression, and an anxiety disorder draw readers into Alice's complex existence. She is afflicted. She's suffering. She fears she's losing her mind. And not for the reasons you might think.

Grief is something most of us can relate to, and it is reflected in Alice's character. Grief is a twisted thing because it tricks you. It's never the same. One day, you feel like you ripped your heart out and lost it in your purse somewhere, and the next day you fee…

Incidentally, a mysterious pandemic has been turning the sick into zombie-like beings, eating away their flesh and minds until nothing is left. 
The survivors are facing a new danger: starvation. But hope lives anywhere darkness blooms, and each day the truth grows closer, as hideous as it may be. 

Through the horrors and deception, love thrives …
