Aralorn's dangerous existence has taken her far from her aristocratic roots and kept her from her homeland for more than a decade. Now, she must return home to mourn the death of her father, the Lyon of Lambshold. But when Aralorn and her companion Wolf arrive, they discover that home is gone forever and they must take on an old enemy more sinister than they ever could have imagined.

Excellent listen that left me longing for the next

I just finished this book and Masques. The two main characters were easy to like and had significant depth. The "bad guy" was quite evil with out being over the top. I found it difficult to turn off either book which my family loves as I cook much more elaborate meals just to have an excuse to listen. It has been many weeks since I last found a book that would entice me to make homemade applesauce.

As was said by the other reviewer, I truly hope the author picks this series back up and writes at least a couple more.

So good

I enjoyed this one as much as Masques! She has such a talent for writing suspense long enough its a good mystery yet not to where it drags. She ads clues so you figure it out with the characters. Characters who we grow to care about.

I want more!!

I wish there were more books after this one. I feel like we were just getting to know Wolf and Aralorn. There is so much more I want to know about them. I think I'm going to have to go back and listen to them again and see if I can find any hidden gems that I missed the first time around.

Didn't like the narration

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I think it will be a good story for some but it didn't do it for me and I think it had something to do with the narration. I kept falling asleep on it and the story just didn't keep me interested. I've listened to a couple of the other ones in the series and enjoyed them enough but not this one.

Another winner by Patricia Briggs!

Loved this book - I miss Aralorn and Wolf already! I hope she'll write more about them. I don't listen to too many audio books over and over, but I do listen to Patrica Briggs' books over and over. Her characters are so well rounded, so full of life. If you like magical fantasy type books, this one won't disappoint.

I love Aralorn and Wolf

I continued to have a lot of fun with this early work from Patricia Briggs. Aralorn and Wolf are really enjoyable characters and I can’t help but love my time with them.

The book starts with an introduction from Briggs explaining that she wrote this book with the intention of it never being released. The first book, Masque, didn’t have a lot of success and she thought her writing career was done, so she continued the story of Aralorn just for her own amusement. This was still a really great story and just shows what a great storyteller she is.

Wolfsbane starts off with Aralorn on her way home for her father’s funeral. She hasn’t been home in many years and really hasn’t kept up with her family. Her father’s death has made it where she needs to return home to mourn with her family. Wolf is not with her. He is on one of his trips without her. He likes to go away for a while to try to keep him from becoming attached, but it isn’t working. They are both very attached.

I really liked seeing Aralorn’s family. They are an interesting bunch. They also seem to accept that Aralorn is different from the rest of the family. She never would’ve been able to put on dresses and be the socialite like other members of the family. It is the reason she left, so that the family wouldn’t have to deal with her differences. I also liked getting to know Aralorn’s father, even if only through the eyes of others.

I don’t want to go too much into the story, so as to avoid spoilers. I will just say that I will miss my time with Aralorn and Wolf. They are two really great characters. I would love to see more stories with them.

Narration
Katherine Kellgren is a great narrator who really takes this story to the next level. I love all of her voices and she really brings out the scene, no matter if it is fighting, mourning or sexy, she uses the perfect pacing and tone. I really love when Aralorn goes into telling a story. Katherine changes her tone to that of an old world storyteller. I loved these stories within the story as much as the main story.

**I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.

Really enjoy Briggs early work

I very much enjoy the Mercy Thompson series; but the earlier works are just as good...I would love to hear more about Sainim...I have listen to the earlier works multiple times. The love the Hurog series and wish that the Hobs Bargain had a part 2. The creativity of all the others are just hard to find!!!

Spellbinding to the very end

Great tale with many twists & turns. a bit of a cliff hanger at the end. I hope that means a 3rd book is in the works.

A satisfying conclusion

What did you like most about Wolfsbane?

I loved the story. It was not a traditional story, in that there is no massive battle in the usual sense. The enemy, the "bad guy", is so dark and insidious that it is a really interesting journey with Aralorn and Wolf to find out how to defeat him.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wolfsbane?

Without wishing to spoil the surprise, the "trick" Aralorn plays on Wolf that reveals a lot about how much they have been through together is my favourite moment. It really touched me, and was very well written.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The scene where Aralorn returns home is excellent. The revelation of her being surrounded by family is a real eye opener into her character, especially after being so isolated previously.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Aralorn believes her father is dead, it was really moving. It is very well written, emotional without being overly sentimental.

Any additional comments?

Again the narration is excellent. Katherine Kellgren does an excellent job of all the difficult language and characters. I really hope Patricia Briggs revisits this series in the future.
