Circle City (Lord of the Wolfen: Book 1), by Alisha Paige
Circle City by Alisha Paige is a paranormal novel that constructs a story made up of deep passion, brutality, and hunger for acceptance. The story and terminology are intricate and intriguing with an edge of darkness laced into the plot. This reader was lead down a path into a world unlike any shifter book I have read in the past.
The story hits a brutal pace from the beginning. The hero and heroine of this novel are Axl and Zoe. Zoe saves a wolf pup (Axl) from certain death by destroying a she-wolf that is obsessed with killing all of her young. Because Zoe has saved the only living heir to inherit the title “Lord of the Wolfen”, she has unwittingly gotten herself caught up in a world she had no clue existed. She is taken prisoner by Wolfen where her ultimate punishment will be dispensed by Axl. To save Zoe, Axl has to think fast to save her life. In order for him to do so, he enmeshes Zoe deeper into the Wolfen world. She takes like a trooper at first. Then, as the story progresses, she begins to question the state of her life.
Alisha Paige pushes the limit on a reader’s comfort level when it comes to the darker side of paranormal romance. She definitely edges into very sinister territory when it comes to sex, drugs, and violence. Those of you who like your stories with some morbidity thrown in, you will enjoy this story immensely. Those of you who like a “fluffier” tale would do well to avoid this story. However, I enjoyed having my limits, as a reader of the paranormal, being stretched to encompass a more foreboding story.
