Feared by humans, envied by werewolves, the Dire wolves are immortal shifters, obeying no laws but their own bestial natures. Once they were many, but now only eight remain, a dangerous wolfpack forever on the hunt… The supernatural world is rising up against the human one. The weretrappers want to control the humans, and only the immortal Dire wolves stand in the way of total destruction. Stray, a Dire, and his long-lost brother, Killian, emerge as the leaders of their pack.
To keep themselves and the humans safe, the Dires must find a witch as powerful as the one who has been helping the weretrappers. Rifter is every bit the Alpha Male, and the bond with his brothers is strong. I lik I presume you know what the book is about, I'm letting you know what I liked or disliked about it. I liked how his perspective was shared with the reader. I liked this part very much.
It's in the telling of this story I grew frustrated - I hate repetition within a story I'm reading. It was like one step forward in the story and four steps back. There were times when I couldn't even turn a page without something being repeated from the previous page. The approach to telling this story is completely different than in any of her other books.
Tyler and associates your readers are smart enough to like you they are smart enough to understand the premise of the story by the end of the first few chapters.

Really - no need to beat the reader over the head with fundamental aspects of the story. Because of the repetition things I normally overlook I couldn't. It just add to the overall unpleasantness of reading the book. It was not edited very well grammatically - so much so it seemed sloppily or hastily published, Gwen was smart enough to ask insightful questions but then turn a page and she was "learning" the very things repeated to the reader a thousand times before.
And really - the "thousand" comment - not such an exaggeration. Overall I am disappointed. I think Ms. Tyler has the foundation for a truly great series here but unless the repetition is edited out, and more of the story is told, this series simply won't sell well. I will wait to read reviews from other readers here before I read the next book in the series. Feb 11, Dee marked it as to-read Shelves: paranormal-romance , wolves , queued-pnr.

- Dire Wants (Eternal Wolf Clan, #2) by Stephanie Tyler!
She hopes a passionate night with the leather-clad, Rifter leads the pack, embracing the lifestyle and ethics of an outlaw biker even as he battles an ancient enemy who has become a new, powerful force. They are the only remaining dire wolves after their deities killed all the other dire wolves thousands of years ago after they went a bit nuts and started massacring humans. The 6 remaining were then gifted with immortality and have been charged with keeping the regular wolf shifters and humans safe from evil.
All of the dire wolves have some sort of power and they help each other out in times of need. The 6 wolves seem to have not a care. They let their wolves loose at the full moon even though they can shift whenever they want and they have sex. These seem to be the extent of these hard ass men. Gwen is a medical resident who is dying. She basically has been given a month to live. She constantly has seizures and the seizures are killing her. She heads out one night to just get drunk and ends up meeting Rifter. When the bad guys go after Gwen Rifter is there to take her back to their mansion and protect her from evil.
The evil comes from witches practicing the dark arts and weretrappers who want to take wolves and especially dire wolves out of the picture forever. One particular witch, Seb, is almost all powerful and is immortal as well. How horrible to see all your dead friends and family coming after you whether they want to or not. If they get her they can replicate her blood and find the one thing that will bring the dires down.
Ok, the premise of this story is one that is good.www.belogorie.by/modules/have/badi-chair-yoga-seated.php
Dire Wants: A Novel of the Eternal Wolf Clan - Stephanie Tyler - Google книги
The good against evil plot I can totally get into as well as Rifter finding a mate in Gwen, which they thought would never happen as all the female dires were killed by the deities years ago. There was a lot of action in the story and I found the other dire wolves interesting as the book went on and I got to know them all a little better. Where do I start? The beginning of the book is when Rifter and Gwen meet. Was he really or was that just him being an ass?
Then she does seize and Rifter helps her but then he starts thinking about his fellow dire wolves and their powers, etc.
Dire Wants: Eternal Wolf Clan Book 2
Instead of a sexy, possible tension ridden scene we get info dumps. I was frustrated. Did I really need to know all that information right then? Besides the info dumping the book became more convoluted as it went on. There was almost too much happening and after a while it became unbelievable and this is a paranormal romance.

What do they choose? To save Gwen. Unfortunately it was hard to concentrate on their romance when so many other things were going on. This review was originally posted on Book Binge by Tracy.

Jan 16, Julie rated it liked it Shelves: read-in The Eternal Wolf Clan series focuses on a pack of Dire wolves, werewolves who are immortal, extra badass and who are sworn to protect humans from crazed weres. This task is not proving easy lately since evil witches and weretrappers are also coming into play. This being the first book in a new paranormal romance series, it just makes sense that it would be about the leader. And the leader of this crew is Rifter. This is supposed to be the story of how he and his HEA Grace meet and fall in love — and it is — but it often got pushed aside in favor of information.
Lots and lots of information. I know that you are not really surprised by this because it is, after all, the first book in a new series. And yes, a certain amount of information is important to set up the world that the author has created, but there is a limit. It was all just a little overloaded for me. Rifter is a great leader and a real alpha. His heroine Grace was well done too. New to this whole world of weres and witches and she takes it like a champ. Stephanie did a great job setting them up.
They are each, of course, going to be getting their own books. Next up is Stray and his book Dire Wants hits shelves in November He was found about 50 years ago after being alone for years and he is a bit of a mystery. Okay, he is a lot of a mystery so it will be very cool to find out more about him and to meet his HEA.
You want to hate him absolutely but there are chapters written from his mindset so you can see the struggle he faces. I am curious to see where everything leads because lots of nasty stuff was set up in this book. I liked how Stephanie wrote her weres. Brother and Sister are very wise and they almost steer the were in the right direction.
They remind them that instinct is sometimes the best thing to follow. But there are a couple of instincts that these guys never question and that is their instinct to run and to fu…yeah. These wolves are very virile and the scenes depicting that are steamy. Very nice. Overall, I did enjoy the guts of this book but I just wish it was told without needing so much explanation.
The world is interesting and the mythology of it all is fascinating…once you understand it all. I have a feeling that Dire Wants will be easier to read and I am looking forward to seeing if I am right.
