Book Summary:
(Taken from Amazon)

Last witch in the world, Faith Scott, and her Irish vampire boyfriend Trent have just come back from fighting for their lives to recover the Vampiric Blood gem and Werewolf Moon gem. Thinking they could finally relax and work on the romance growing between them, they now meet a mysterious psychic vampire named Vincent who has his heart set on being with Faith.

Soon bizarre killings of Zou Tai's werewolf pack begin, with rumors of an alchemist possessing the famed philosophers stone being the assailant; which causes Faith to turn to Vincent for help in figuring out why the werewolves are being murdered.

It isn't long before all those around them test Trent and Faith's love, along with their abilities, once again. It is all Trent can do to keep Faith safe by his side while both go up against a deadly alchemist, deceptive gods, and having to rescue the werewolf prince; yet, after a deal with the God of Werewolves will Trent be able to save himself too?

Mandy's Review:

I've said it before and I'll say it again ... although, this time authors,  please take note because I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels this way ... I tire of every male in a story wanting the main strong dominate female character. It's getting a little redundant. There are two vampires, a werewolf, a werewolf god, and a slayer who now all want Faith. Seriously? Are there not any other competent women in New York City that can handle these otherworldly beings?

Now that I've ranted a little and gotten that out of my system, let's get to the nitty gritty ...

The book opens with Aphrodite and Circe discussing Trent and Faith's love. One wishes to leave them be while the other wants to test their relationship. Other than the fact that Faith and Trent are from two different "species," I'm not really sure I understand what the problem is with them being together. So, it angered me to see that the gods were willing to play in the lives of others just to seemingly amuse themselves.

In the first book of this series, Vampyre Kisses, Faith practiced and honed her physical fighting abilities and her magical abilities. In this novel, Faith is now beginning to practice honing her psychic abilities. When she's finished all of her training, Faith is going to be one kick-ass witch.

Two things improve in this novel from the first one: the fighting scenes and the sex scenes. You can tell an author's growth in their writing ability by how comfortable the characters feel to the reader and, in Werewolf Descent, you can tell a marked improvement in Ms. Kolodziej's writing ability.

Despite my brief rant at the beginning of this review, I did enjoy reading the continuation of Faith and Trent's story. I wasn't fond of the ending, but I'm hoping there's a reason for it that will be revealed in the sequel.

If you're a fan of vampire/werewolf novels, I highly recommend you get a copy of the Vampyre Kisses series.

  1. You should check out salvaged pieces of a werewolf lost before reading Witch Devotions when it comes out september 26th 2012. It may put your ranting to an end when you see what happens. haha. In no way did I mean that to sound rude! :)
    But it's Zou Tai's novella. And yes there is a reason Werewolf Descent ended the way it did and Witch Devotions should more than make up for it since it's like 20K more than either of the first ones and gets a lot of explaining out.
    There is a reason males are attracted to her...And I just can't give away that secret! You're gonna have to read the next book! >:)
    And if you don't get it then, I will come out and say it! Promise!

    <3's and fangs,

  2. Okay - Send me the book! ;-) You know I need to know why she's so "attractive" to everyone!!!!!
