What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

I was sold to werewolves.

They said I’m the Lost Princess of Howling Sky. I said I’m just Sorissa. They said I’m to be claimed by a lecherous prince and that I’ll end some timeless war between werewolves, vampires, and humans. I made other plans.

Then four powerful werewolves from a rival kingdom came out of nowhere, and I was stolen again.

They call themselves Phantom Fangs. Now, they’re taking me to their kingdom to keep me “safe.” They probably intend for some other prince to claim me instead. But I’m going to change their minds. They’re different from the other werewolves. They’re kind, they listen to me, and they make my blood run hot.

Can I trust them?

Thoughts on Taken by Werewolves

This fantasy takes the werewolf and vampire myths and flips them on their heads, adding new rules set in a world on the brink of destruction. In this world, there is the typical lost princess, who is really as far from typical as you can get – and totally not what anyone was expecting. It was fun, original and highly entertaining!


  • World building.
  • Undertones of our own political climate and lessons.
  • Sexism is real.
  • Very refreshing and original.


  • Sometimes it was disjointed.

My Final Verdict on Taken by Werewolves

Unique and highly underrated, this Fantasy RH is a decent blend of action and heat, smashing mythos together while crafting a new universe of angst and endless war. Free on KU.

Please note, this is the beginning of a Reverse Harem series which features alternative romantic dynamics and sexual scenes more suited to an adult audience (those though scenes appear later in the series, not this particular book). #WhyChoose
