Don't Call the Wolf: Review

Rating: 3.5/5 stars
This book was okay. I love it but also hated it at the same time. This book is about the Queen of the Forest who partners up with the Wolf Lord to kill the Golden Dragon.

The plot of this story was good but not amazing. The pacing was good though not bad and I loved all the dark feel to it. Though it says it’s similar to Leigh Bardugo’s writing it is not. Aleksandra's writing is really good though don’t get me wrong with that. She did a wonderful job adding Eastern European touches to it because of it something different and unique. Even though it took me a while to get hooked to the story I’m glad I read and finished it.

The character’s name I had a huge problem with. One because it was difficult to imagine how to pronounce the name but the author added a pronunciation sheet which helped a little. There were like 20-30 different names and it was hard to keep up so just pronounced them the way I would except for the main characters because those were easier. It took me a while to memorize the name and I caught up on page 100 on who was who. I did like the main characters though. Ren, who is the Queen of the Forest, developed a lot throughout the story by finding out who she really is. Lukasz is the last wolf lord and he also developed along the way. I love the way the author wrote their relationship which was a slow burn development meaning it was love at first sight but slowing developing their relationship and learning about each other.

I did enjoy this book a lot towards the end because it got really interesting. The beginning took me a while to get hooked to the story. Those who love dark fantasy with dragons will like this book.
