Romance Book Review: Maddie Barone's Ellie's Wolf
Author: Maddie Barone
Series Connection: After the Crash
Genre: Sci-Fi, Paranormal, Futuristic, Erotic Romance
Publisher: Liquid Silver Books
In continuation of the After the Crash series, author Maddie Barone moves the series five years into the future. Ellie Overdahl, Taye human cousin, has gone off and married her fiance and moved far away from her family with her husband to start a new life. She's had a baby and all seems well, until her husband dies and her husband's boss wants to sell her to woman traders.
What Ellie never knew this who time is that she has a wolf mate, who stepped aside when he found her because she was already taken, but when Quill finds out that Ellie's husband is dead and she has been sold to traders who intend to sell her in a bride fight, Quill has to rush to save her.
Once he wins her, the journey is far getting home and it isn't safe on the tough roads in the future when every man seems to be out to find a woman and either make a buck or have her for his own.
The wolves are a tough bunch though and protect their own.
In this story the author also introduces two other new couples that will find themselves in an anthology in the future. Both of those two couples seem to have exciting stories already forming.
This is an interesting series with a twist from the normal paranormal wolf story introducing the sci-fi/futuristic element of a totally changed earth after a war breaks out in 2014, changing the future drastically, with elements of the old west coming to life. Everywhere one turns is danger and women need to be protected.
In a post-apocalyptic world where women are rare and valuable, Ellie Overdahl is a widow far from home at the mercy of strangers. Sold to be a prize in a Bride Fight, she manages to send word to her cousin, begging for rescue.
For six years, Quill Wolfe has mourned the loss of the woman his wolf chose to be his mate. When word comes that Ellie is widowed and about to be forced into an unwanted marriage, he races to enter the Bride Fight. He has waited long enough to claim his mate, and no fighter is good enough to keep him from her. But claiming Ellie is only the beginning. It’s not just the journey home that is dangerous and uncertain.
