My Review:

Wolf’s Bane and Wolf’s Curse are a young adult paranormal duology that centres on Kate and Logan, the children of Elena and Clay from the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. I don’t know if it’s needed but I think reading these books would be much more enjoyable if you’re familiar with the Otherworld series or even the Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong. There are characters from those series that appear in these books and because I had already read those series I really enjoyed reading about these characters that I’ve read before.

These books follow a similar plot to the Darkest Powers series, it centres around a group of teen supernatural’s who end up realising everything is not what it seems and the group experiments from the Darkest Powers series is brought up again in this. I didn’t know if I’d enjoy Wolf’s Bane and Wolf’s Curse as much since it’s been a long time since I’ve read a book set in this world but I was so surprised that I did end up really liking these books.

I was completely sucked into the story and I forgot how fast paced Kelley Armstrong’s books are. I loved reading about Kate and Logan all grown up and reading about Elena and Clay as side characters, it was so nice to be back in the world of it again. I flew through these books simply because the plot is so fast paced, everything happens within almost twenty four hours. Even though it’s split into two books I’d probably view this story as one whole one since the ending of Wolf’s Bane ends right in the middle of the story and you’d definitely need to read Wolf’s Curse to find out what happens.

I enjoyed reading about Kate and Logan and seeing their own personalities, I liked how they had their own things to work through as twins as they are both growing and learning how to rely of each other. I liked the different friendships they formed in this book and liked seeing them lead their group.

Overall I really enjoyed these books and I think if you’re a fan of Kelley Armstrong’s Otherworld or Darkest Powers series then you’ll really enjoy these, there are some characters who show up and/or talked about in these books (I’ll not say who because I wouldn’t want to spoil it). Wolf’s Bane and Wolf’s Curse are two fast paced books with interesting characters and an intriguing plot.
