What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
My blood is their salvation… and my ruin.
For years, the monsters who killed my family have held me in a cage. Brutalized and half-starved. Only kept alive so they can steal my blood.
Until one evening when four eerily gorgeous men break me out of my prison.
They give me a soft bed and delicious food. They say they’ll protect me—but their generosity may come at a price.
My rescuers are monsters like my captors: fae who shift into wolves. A curse gripping the faerie realm turns them wild under the full moon. Only my blood can cure their rage.
These fearsome men need me, and not just to lift the curse. A tragedy left them outcasts, and offering me to their rulers could win them back the home and the power they lost.
No matter how kindly they treat me, no matter how their smoldering eyes and strong hands stir unfamiliar desires in both my body and my heart, their castle is just another prison. As long as I’m a prize more than a person, my life will never be my own.
I’ve survived this long without giving up. I won’t roll over now. But how can one damaged human girl hold her own against the savage fae?
My Thoughts on Captive Of Wolves
Eva Chase has a way of concocting stories that sweep through a narrative, enticing the reader even as it lays the groundwork for events that may seem surprising… though foreshadowing clearly defines the twists. This one has that, but not quite as much as some of her other works. I liked it, but I am more curious as to where it is going than captivated by the Fae.
On the surface, Captive of Wolves reminded me a bit of Hunted, another fantastic read featuring a traumatized heroine and a pack of wolves. Yet the reminder is purely superficial, as looking deeper makes it clear that this novel is NOTHING like that one, though you should enjoy this if you salivated over Hunted. Here, the heroine is more jaded and determined, and the pack is equally intriguing.
And, this is a Slow Burn, which is a different stroke for Eva Chase – but she is presenting it well. I am eager to see where this narrative will go.

My Final Verdict on Captive Of Wolves
Eva Chase has crafted a winner with this slower burn offering, gifting us with a new version of the Fae – and their shifter souls. Interesting and well paced, this is free on Kindle Unlimited.
