Three possessive wolf shifters. A wounded woman finding her strength. A world of dangerous fae determined to exploit her unexpected powers.

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 three eerily gorgeous men rescue me.

They offer a safe haven under their protection with everything I need to heal. I'm not used to this kindness—or the desires their smoldering eyes and strong hands stir in my body and my heart.

But these fearsome men aren't really men. Like my former captors, they're fae who can shift into wolves. A curse gripping the faerie realm turns them wild under the full moon.

Only the strange power coursing through my veins can cure their rage.

I'm a prize as much as a person to them. But I've survived this long without giving up. And as I recover my strength, I'm winning their hearts as well.

Can this damaged human hold her own among the savage fae?

*Bound to the Fae is a fantasy romance series featuring possessive shifters, dangerous fae politics, and a wounded heroine coming into her own. This 1100-page set contains with the first three books in the series—Captive of Wolves, Feral Blood, and Kings of Moonlight—as well as two bonus scenes.*


Wolves of Summer is a box set featuring the first three books in the nine book series, Bound to the Fae by Eva Chase. I picked this title up; because of the cover.

Captive of Wolves

Captive of Wolves is book one in the Bound to the Fae series by Eva Chase.

It’s written in different POV’s and is a reverse harem.

The series follows one girl or should I say a young women who was kidnapped as a young teenager and spends the next nine years in captivate being abused, beaten, starved, and having her blood stollen all so the Fae, who can change into wolves, don’t go crazy one night each month.

I like the concept of Fae who are werewolves. This is new to me in the paranormal genre. I haven’t read this type of supernatural before.

Captive of Wolves, is a slow and a bit hard to read at times; because of the abuse and emotions. Then we have a very young heroine who is starting to come into her own. Her mindset is between a child and adolescence and maybe into adulthood so, having her have sexual rations with older men (immortals) didn’t work for me. It felt off. I’m also not a fan of young heroine’s.

As for the Fae men, our heroine is rescued by four of them, but not all of them like humans. About 80% of the book is spent with our heroine having moments with each guy and not all are good moments. One wants her gone, another is in the middle on his feelings, and the last two want to sleep with her.

The end is when our plot finally kicks in with some fighting, blood drinking, and then the guys talking about sharing her.

This book felt too much like Stockholm Syndrome. Then the guys talking about sharing her made it sound like she’s a toy. Our heroine is a virgin and has had no experience with relationships, interactions with others, etc… I also felt no chemistry between the characters except maybe with August one of the Fae men. Last, I started this thinking it would be a three book series, but it turns out to be nine books. I can’t see this series going that long.

Rated: 2 Stars


Bones Novella ‘Captive of Wolves’
Whitt’s Thoughts.

It was ok.



Feral Blood

Feral Blood is book two in the Bound to the Fae series by Eva Chase.

We pick up after book one and not a lot happens. Things just move along and basically the first part is a summary of the main events in Captive of Wolves.

With the plot we get multiple conflicts with barely any tension. We have the Fae war, the issue with Talia’s previous captures, and then her relationship with the Fae men who rescued her.

Things just move slowly like they drag on or it felt that way to me. As for the conflicts when they do solve things it feels too easily done. We also have lots of time jumps that felt awkward. Last, Talia losses her virginity in this one.

As for the romance it’s blaze-a. The sex scenes feel steamy, but also didn’t feel real. I was wondering on some of the positions and how that could work out. The sexy times are very limited and I really wanted more. Last, I’m still not feeling any chemistry. Talia is just too young for me to feel that the relationships will work.

The one thing I do find interesting is; what is Talia? Everyone says human, but her blood helps them and she can do magic. That’s something I’m curious about, but not enough to continue reading.

Rated: 2 Stars



Bonus Novella ‘Feral Bound’
Featuring August’s feelings the morning after.

I didn’t gain any insight into August. It felt word for word just changing the POV in the story around to him instead of Talia.



Overall I enjoy reverse harems, but Bound to the Fae series isn’t for me. I’m going to DNF at 69% the start of book three – Kings of Moonlight. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you. 

DNF: 69%
