Lord of the Wolfyn #3 by Jessica Andersen

Lord of the Wolfyn (Royal House of Shadows #3)by Jessica Andersen
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Once upon a time…the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden. To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with vengeance. Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs…and time is running out.…

For practical Reda Weston, nothing could explain how reading a sexy version of Little Red Riding Hood catapulted her into another realm—face-to-fang with the legendary wolf-creature who seduced women. A wolf who transformed into a dark, virile man….

Dayn cursed the Sorcerer that turned him wolfyn and damned him to a lonely fate. As a beast, he mated with women to gain strength. Strength he needed to save Elden. But as a man, he craved Reda’s heated, sizzling touch. With little time left, Dayn had to either embrace his wolf to save his kingdom…or fight it to save his woman.

It has been 20 years since Dayn has seen his homeland.  He ended up in the land of the Wolfyn when his parents cast their final spell.  His father’s parting words warned him to wait for his guide before he tried to return to Elden.  He has managed to live in harmony with the Wolfyn while hiding his true self and waiting for his guide to appear.

Reda is different and she knows it.  Her mother would tell her fairy tales that involved a huntsman but she was too young to understand the significance of the stories.  She has suffered the loss of two very important people in her life, her mother and her partner.  Lately she has been going through the motions and her nights are filled with dreams of the Huntsman.  She has decided to search for the book of her childhood but she never anticipated it leading her to the huntsman of her dreams.

I loved Reda’s character and enjoyed watching her grow.  She was unsure of herself and her capabilities when she first arrived in the Wolfyn realm.  She was carrying around a massive amount of guilt for what happened with her partner and didn’t trust herself to back up Dayn.  As the story progresses, you see her really come into her own.  She learns to forgive herself and to take what she wants.  She is the courageous warrior that Dayn sees every time he looks at her.

Dayn is the Prince of Elden and is bound by duty to help defend his homeland from the Blood Sorcerer.  He too is carrying around his own share of guilt because his last conversation with his father was a fight over Dayn’s future.  He feels responsible for what happened to his parents and his homeland.  He has been keeping his true self hidden and only allowed it to surface one time.  Now he will be forced to embrace it in order to save Reda’s life and risk losing her forever.

Reda and Dayn are good for one another.  Each of them are carrying around so much guilt that neither one of them are really living, they are just existing.  They are alone and have to depend on each other for survival, which means they have to trust each other.  The sexual tension between them is evident from the beginning.  I am glad things worked out as they did.

The author did a fabulous job of describing the desolate homelands of Prince Dayn.  I could feel his despair over the loss of life in the trees, land, flowers and everything else.  I can’t wait until the final installment to see how they defeat the Blood Sorcerer.

This was not my favorite installment of the three but it was as good as the other two.  It really is important to read this series in order if you want to see the whole picture, however each book does stand on its own.  I give Lord of Wolfyn 4 Flaming Hearts.
