Release Day Review ~ Claimed (The Lair of the Wolven #1) by J.R. Ward @JRWard1 ~ #PNR #Wolves #Shifters #BDB #BlackDaggerBrotherhood

“This emotional roller coaster does not disappoint.”—Publisher’s Weekly
Welcome to the Lair of the Wolven.
Get ready to be Claimed…

Claimed, the first book in an all new epic series, Lair of the Wolven from #1 New York Times and bestselling author J.R. Ward is now available!

About the Book:

A heart-pounding new series set in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world, with a scientist fighting to save the timber wolves—and getting caught in a deadly trap herself...

Lydia Susi is passionate about protecting wolves in their natural habitat. When a hotel chain develops a tract of land next to the preserve, Lydia is one of the most vocal opponents of the project—and becomes a target.

One night, a shadowy figure threatens Lydia’s life in the forest, and a new hire at the Wolf Study Project comes from out of nowhere to save her. Daniel Joseph is both mysterious, and someone she intrinsically wants to trust. But is he hiding something?

As the stakes get higher, and one of Lydia’s colleagues is murdered, she must decide how far she will go to protect the wolves. Then a shocking revelation about Daniel challenges Lydia’s reality in ways she could never have predicted. Some fates demand courage, others require even more, with no guarantees. Is she destined to have true love... or will a soul-shattering loss ruin her forever?

My Review:

Claimed is a fabulous wolf shifter novel. J.R. Ward's world-building is not only original and complex, but visually appealing. I was able to picture the scenes, settings, characters, and action. I could feel the romance, chemistry, and emotions between the characters. There are twists, turns, and revelations that will have the reader in awe. 

Lydia Susi and Daniel Joseph are wonderful characters. She's a scientist with a passion for wolves and he's a drifter with a secret. Complete with a slow-burn romance, we get to see Lydia and Daniel dance around their attraction, eventually working up to being friends and then more. The book also includes the construction of a hotel chain next to the preserve and a mystery behind sickened wolves that escalates into more dangerous events. 

I enjoyed the book being set in world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. While the book is a standalone, it was nice to go back to BDB and spend time with some of the characters who started this massive series. I enjoyed catching up with some of the original characters.

I was provided a copy of this book to read.
