Primrose & The Wolf: A Huxley Sisters Paranormal Romance is a paranormal shifter fantasy written by J.A. Fales. Primrose Huxley had finally gotten somewhat comfortable in her little bookstore, Volumes and Vagaries, and was beginning to feel in control when she heard a voice that brought her back to reality with a sharp thud. She never wanted to see the handsome and sexy wolf shifter again, especially after his betrayal and theft of her grandmother's locket. Primrose had suffered terribly after that, first in a prison as a disgraced nun facing execution, and then under the tender and excruciating mercies of the sadistic and psychopathic leonine prince of hell, Ipos. She still bore the scars of their time together on her body and in her soul. Primrose knew it was imperative that she remain hidden safely in the fairy town called Paradox that had been her refuge. Mason Geroux's reappearance was therefore not at all welcome, and he had no idea just how powerful and deadly his beloved witch had become.
J.A. Fales' shifter fantasy novel, Primrose & The Wolf: A Huxley Sisters Paranormal Romance, is set just beyond the real world, in a little faerie town called Paradox. Its inhabitants will sound vaguely familiar to those readers who grew up on stories by the Brothers Grimm and Han Christian Andersen, and later found their imaginations taking flight with stories from Greek and Roman mythology. Fales adroitly blends all these influences into a compelling and wryly humorous tale about a cursed family of immortal witches and their epic struggles against a prince of hell and an elder god. Add in some references to spaghetti Westerns and David Carradine's unforgettable performance in the 1970 series, Kung Fu, and you end up with a thought-provoking, original, and infinitely enjoyable tale that succeeds on so many levels, not least of which is shifter romance, complete with a very sexy alpha wolf.
While this is a squeaky clean romance, suitable for young adult as well as adult readers, there's plenty of raucous attitudes, danger, and unrequited passion guaranteed to keep readers on edge and waiting to see what happens next. Fales' story is deftly plotted and reads like a dream, and her characters are funny, exasperating, and altogether unforgettable. I'll be looking for more Huxley Sisters stories in the future. Primrose & The Wolf: A Huxley Sisters Paranormal Romance is most highly recommended.
