Book review: She Wulf

He came through the centuries to find her, the girl who could save them all. Annie Pearce runs through the streets of the city, chasing a demon, the likes she has never seen before. As she works to find out where the demon came from, the Wizard Guard encounters something even more bizarre. A tenth century Viking.

When Annie gets sucked into the past, she must struggle with the knowledge of the prophecy that tells of her destiny. The one she must fulfill if she is to return home. What happens in the past will change the world
Those of you who read my last post are familiar with the premise of She Wulf by Sheryl Steines. But, I had to put the cover front and center here again just because. Because I love the cover! The cover really sets the tone for the whole book. It is vibrant and colorful, and ties in the fire concept perfectly. And the only complaint I have with the whole book lies in the cover. The title. Being unfamiliar with the series and it's companion book, The Day of the First Sun, I really thought I was going to be reading a werewolf book. But I was surprised because what I got was a book filled with a little bit of everything. From vampires, to demons, to shape shifters and time traveling witches, this book has it all. And I am never one to turn away a good time traveling Viking. 

What She Wulf gives us is a Harry Potter type world where a whole sub culture of supernatural beings is governed by the Wizard Government in America. This government has it's headquarters in the heart of Chicago. The huge building that houses all branches of this sub culture's government, along with schools and anything else you can think of to cover wizard type affairs, is masqueraded into a nondescript building. That of course we mortals have no idea exists.

The story centers on the lead character Annie. She is a detective in the wizard policing world and the love interest of  Cham, her long time boyfriend and former partner. After the chance investigation of a regenerating demon and the discovery of a talisman that is an apparent portal in time, we learn that Annie herself just might be connected to the past. What follows is a race to save Annie and bring her back to her century.

This book is nothing short of fast paced and full of action. It blends all forms of supernatural creatures and throws in a healthy dose of time travel and romance.  The writing is on point and easy to follow. The story was engaging and held my attention. The most original part of the story came for me with the vikings. It was an unexpected addition to this type of story line.
