Return to the sizzling glymera’s prison camp in this dark and sexy second novel in the new Black Dagger Brotherhood Prison Camp spin-off series from the #1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward.
In the next installment of bestselling author J.R. Ward’s Prison Camp series, things get steamy when Lucan, a wolven forced into bartering drug deals for the infamous Prison Colony, meets Rio, the second in command for the shadowy Caldwell supplier, Mozart. After a deal goes awry, a wolf with piercing golden eyes swoops in to save her from certain death. As shocking truths unfurl, Rio is uncertain of who to trust and what to believe—but with her life on the line, true love rears its head and growls in the face of danger.
No one builds a world quite as well as JR Ward, and The Wolf is no exception. This is book 2 in the BDB spin off, Prison Camp, and it delivers everything you expect from Ward.
Rio and Lucan have a love story that is fraught with danger and illicit activities. I felt as if there was a sort of mystery I was trying to solve. What was really going on here? I loved that aspect. Lucan is a classic BDB tortured hero and Rio is a badass for sure. However, all this “extra” takes away time from the romance, and I felt that loss. You do get lots of peeks as past BDB characters which is the norm for Ward, but again, takes away from this story’s characters.
Despite my minor issues, I really loved The Wolf! It is a very intriguing book with lots happening that will keep you furiously flipping pages!
