Reviewed by Nicolle Williams for Readers' Favorite

"Salvaged Pieces of a Werewolf Lost" is a beautifully written paranormal romance by Elizabeth J. Kolodziej. This short novel is set in Japan where one of the thirteen werewolf warriors, Tadashi, have just been murdered for having a relationship with Mandy, a human. Zou Tai, the prince of the werewolves, flies back from America to discover the murder of his lifelong friend who was like a brother to him. He is distraught and vows to find the killer, though when he makes the shocking discovery of who the murderer is, he has some very important decisions to make, which could change the werewolf world forever.

This novella works well as a stand-alone novel, though it would probably be more enjoyable if I had read the first two books in 'The Last Witch' series, as there were many references to what happened in the past like Zou Tai’s relationship with Faith. The main fault with this novella is that it is very short and therefore the descriptions are sparse. I would have loved the same plot in double the amount of pages, as the story idea is really great. The point of view change near the beginning of the novella was slightly confusing at first but necessary, and for a minute, it makes you believe that Tadashi survived! I really enjoyed the account through Zou Tai’s eyes, and the turmoil he was going through personally, which for me made him a more likeable character with depth.
