Dire Warning- Stephanie Tyler (book 0.5)

Immortal and invincible, Rifter is the head of the last surviving pack of Dire Wolves—a band of Alpha brothers charged with protecting the Weres. But now that witches have joined forces with nefarious weretrappers, it’s a perfect storm for double trouble. When the murder of a human points to a wolf, along with the threat of the packs being outted to the world, the Dires fear that something even more dangerous is out there hiding in the dark, something waiting for the right time to show itself.

I'm going to be as honest as I can on this review- I liked the storyline but the actual story was so jammed together in such a small novella that things jumped around a little too much for me. With, I think, a total of six Dire & Were you have to learn about with not much information about each and yes I do understand this is a prequel novella to introduce you to the characters but I still think it was scattered. I have read this author's books before and I really enjoyed her writing but honestly, I felt like I was reading something that was rushed and nowhere close to being as good as her other work but- the teaser chapter for book one Dire Needs was great- I am looking forward to that book.  I personally am not one that points out mistakes in books and have no problem with people that do, but there are a lot of mistakes in this short book but they did not stop me from completing this book or wanting to read the rest of this series.
For the storyline alone I will give this book a 3

  1. Novellas are such a crap shoot because of their length. I see so many that, like you say, are squished up novels.

    I want to check this series out. Thanks for sharing your review.
