Book Review: Wolves Among Men

             Today's review is on Wolves Among Men by Penlelope Sweet

Wolves Among Men is a fast-paced adventure that has the potential for being a really good book. With a decent story line and the beautiful flow of the authors voice, it's a shame that it's riddled with editing mistakes.

Ethan Harlow and his sister Cordillia are trying to live their lives the best that they can after the death of their parents. Ethan takes responsibility for his baby sister and would do anything to protect her and keep her safe. After all, all they have is each other now. It's funny though, how everything can change in one moment. How a normal life can turn to chaos. And that's exactly what happens.

One evening, Ethan is attacked and left for dead only to be "rescued" by a strange and beautiful woman. But after waking up in the ICU, Ethan notices some strange changes in himself. Unknowingly, Ethan has become a Werewolf.

What follows is a story of love, loss, and friendship amongst a war. A war that Ethan has unwittingly started by breaking a treaty between wolves. Wolves that protect humans, and wolves that eat humans. Now he'll need the help of all of his new friends and the woman who changed him to end it.

I really wanted this book to be better than it actually is. I could feel for the characters as I was pulled into the story. I didn't want to put the book down. I had to see what was going to happen. Sadly however, there are just so many editing mistakes.

Proper punctuation is missing, wrong words are used, quotes where they shouldn't be. It seems like the book didn't even go through editing. Readers deserve a bit better than that no matter how much the book costs.
