Then, at the full moon, a sheep is slaughtered on Eyam Moor, by what could only be a large animal. Even the brothers’ staunchest supporters begin to have their doubts about who—or what—could have done it. As the brothers fight to clear their names, things are complicated by unexpected opportunities to indulge their lust. Isaac is intrigued by a handsome newcomer to the village, and a vivacious visitor is happy to offer Matthew her all.

    This was was a very interesting read, I voluntarily reviewed it from TBC on FB, and thoroughly enjoyed it! It reminded me very strongly of a book that I read many years ago, but was still very, very good. I loved how the characters progressed and evolved from the beginning to the end, from social loners, to open to outside relationships, to the horror that those relationships can sometimes inflict on a person. It was a paranormal romance, but it seems almost an afterthought. There were many occa This was was a very interesting read, I voluntarily reviewed it from TBC on FB, and thoroughly enjoyed it!

It was a paranormal romance, but it seems almost an afterthought. There were many occasions of intimacy between partners, they were not as lurid as they could have been, which I appreciate!! I thought it was phenomenal how the author conveyed the emotions of the intimacy, and it pervaded the story and fit in, instead of seeming to be gratuitous. Beautifully written story, very, very well done!!

    I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review. Where to start! There's so much going on in this book and so many curious questions I asked myself and will never know the answers to. Why? Well not solely because of the content but because the way my mind works. The story is set in the historical village of Eyam and of course any student of history will immediately be sparked by this. What a wonderful imaginative journey the book took me on.

There's so much going on in this book and so many curious questions I asked myself and will never know the answers to. Why? Well not solely because of the content but because the way my mind works. The story is set in the historical village of Eyam and of course any student of history will immediately be sparked by this. What a wonderful imaginative journey the book took me on. Yes it's fiction and of course didn't happen (if I was being weird now I'd put the words "or did it" in brackets). But what if... The book led me to asking all kinds of questions around the contents wanting to know more about the place and the fictional history. It's easy enough to find historical information about the village but I wanted to know more about the lives of our werewolf brothers - of course I'll never get those answers but it was fun wondering about it all. The descriptions and characters in the book are brought to life very easily. I did guess the ending but also dismissed it a couple of times before going back to it. The book is standard length and contains a good story on it's own. The plot is developed and immersive. There are plenty of characters to like. I enjoyed the sheer humanity within the book, the love and friendship displayed was something akin to some of my own experiences and it may have made me say awww a few times. Now on to the bit you've probably been waiting for: The SEX. Yes I used capital letters mid-sentence. There are many M/M and M/F scenes. All of which are smoldering hot. Although it takes a little while for the first sex scene to appear in the book by this time you've got to know the characters a little and are invested in them a little. I almost found myself high fiving and cheering them on when they got all lusty. I've read a few Lucy Felthouse books and I have to say this was one of my favourites. Yes it's about the sex but she shows in this that imagination can run it's wibbly wobbly line and that good characters and plot are allowed in a sexy book. She shows that even a small village visited as a tourist can be brought to life and used as a tool to spark a story. It also came across clearly that Lucy loves and respects the village and it's history. The small appenddum at the end of the story to describe the setting and history was a nice touch and those who are unfamiliar with the history of Eyam but wanting to know more about it before embarking on the story can safely read it without spoiling the story itself.

    The Persecution of Wolves is set in the small village of Eyam, Derbyshire, which is a place I visited many moons ago on a school trip. I was very interested to read this story, and to see how the factual history would be incorporated into a modern-day fictional story. Needless to say, I was not disappointed at all. All of the history is here, plus there is an addendum at the end, and you see how those events still impact the village today. Our brothers, Matthew and Isaac, change just once a month The Persecution of Wolves is set in the small village of Eyam, Derbyshire, which is a place I visited many moons ago on a school trip. I was very interested to read this story, and to see how the factual history would be incorporated into a modern-day fictional story. Needless to say, I was not disappointed at all. All of the history is here, plus there is an addendum at the end, and you see how those events still impact the village today. Our brothers, Matthew and Isaac, change just once a month, on the night of the full moon. Although they become wolves, they are fully cognisant of who they are, where they are, etc. However, when a dead sheep is found mauled to death, suspicion instantly falls on them. They need to figure out who is framing them, before they have to leave the village. Although this is classed as a Paranormal Romance, I would actually class it as Paranormal Mystery, as the romance part definitely takes a back seat to the main story. They do have "sexual relations" in the story, but it is part of the story, not just gratuitous. When the 'whodunnit' is solved, it was exactly who I thought it was, so there was no surprise. However, the raw emotion that is there makes it 'real'. Very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt from the reading flow, this book is different to my normal reads, but I thoroughly enjoyed every word. Definitely recommended by me. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

    I saw this book advertised in TBC on Facebook #TBConFB. It's paranormal and romance so definitely up my street. The title caught my eye too, so after requesting and receiving, I started to read. Now the premise is good, I really liked the storyline, however for me it was far too slow getting to the point. I am by no means an author and never claim to be, however I just know what I like and this wasn't it. That's not to say that I didn't like the writing or the way it was written.

I read a lot of books third person so this never bothered me, however it just took too long in the build up, don't get me wrong I like tension building, but this book didn't so much as build the tension as plod along. I felt the author could have done away with the first quarter of the book and I found myself skipping bits. I liked Issac, he was very modern and that came across and I liked that the author chose to do M/M relationships as the main focus. I didn't like his brother Matthew all that much. He was very traditional in the relic kind of way for me. I won't diss this book because it really wasn't that bad, it just didn't do it for me. Happy Reading :-)

I can’t say why I disliked it without spoiling the book entirely. Even saying, this is not a romance and there is no happily anything in the end, may give too much away. It is a decent werewolf book, though I would have liked more wolf time. It is a book about a community and two very long lived creatures trying to make their way in the world. However, the ending drops my rating. I just did not like it at all.

It flowed well, was totally believable and was a great read. There is some explicit sex which is was well executed and isn't excessive, and these relationships are integral to the story. I will be reading more from this author.

    I had no idea what to expect from this book as I am not a huge fan of Paranormal stories. What I did get from it was a great supernatural 'who dunnit'! I had worked out the 'who' but not the 'why'. Lucy has a wonderful writing style that is so descriptive that had me almost thinking I was walking the streets of Eyam or sitting in the pub with the locals. Werewolves give me creeps, can't watch films with them in, but thankfully Lucy has Michael and Isaac in their human form more than their furry f I had no idea what to expect from this book as I am not a huge fan of Paranormal stories.

    this isn't normally the type of book I would read but I got it free to review and it had werewolves in it so couldn't say no. it is an easy read and the storyline follows 2 werewolves who have lived in Eyam for four hundred years with the villagers knowing there secret. suddenly they find that they are being set up and have to find out by whom and why. the plot was good but I found it obvious who had set them up. there are some interesting love subplots in the story which add to the plot overall this isn't normally the type of book I would read but I got it free to review and it had werewolves in it so couldn't say no. it is an easy read and the storyline follows 2 werewolves who have lived in Eyam for four hundred years with the villagers knowing there secret. suddenly they find that they are being set up and have to find out by whom and why. the plot was good but I found it obvious who had set them up. there are some interesting love subplots in the story which add to the plot overall it was a good and easy read.

    I read this under it's former title, Pack of Lies. I enjoyed it then and now that is having a new release I may have to read it again. For my complete review, check out the Pack of Lies title. Per the author's newsletter there have been no changes except the title and cover. The author also says this is one of her "very favorite books." I can see why. It was a good read and I highly recommend it to anyone.

    I absolutely enjoyed this book. It's a great whodunit with a bit of supernatural and romance thrown in. I loved the authors writing and her descriptions of the village and it's history. I also love it when you're reading a book and the characters are enjoying a good cup of tea and it's written so well you need to put the book down, boil the kettle and make yourself a cuppa to go along with them. I really hope there will be a follow up to this book.

    **RATING 3.5** THE PERSECUTION OF THE WOLVES by Lucy Felthouse is a paranormal mystery that is sure to entertain. We soon learn that Matthew and Isaac Adams live in the village of Eyam and are more than meets the eye - for not only are they the local GP and barman, they are also werewolves that are hundreds of years old. Most of the village know who and what they are and protect them, but when a mutilated sheep is found on one of the local farms, suspicion starts to land on them.

With unexpected friendships and passion, plenty of supernatural action and a very descriptive setting, THE PERSECUTION OF THE WOLVES by Lucy Felthouse is a solid read. *I voluntarily reviewed this book from THE Book Club on FB

    This was a different type of book for me but it certainly didn't disappoint. I found the characters interesting and instantly took to them. I loved how the village was described and came to life in my mind. The storyline had twists and turns and I thoroughly enjoyed trying to work out 'whodunit'. The background history both as the book went along and at the end was a definite bonus for me. Looking forward to my next fix from this great writer.
