Werewolf brothers Matthew and Isaac have lived in the peaceful village of Eyam, Derbyshire all their lives. The villagers know what happens every full moon, and have their reasons for keeping quiet. But this secrecy comes at a cost—the brothers can’t risk romantic entanglements.

Then, at the full moon, a sheep is slaughtered on Eyam Moor, by what could only be a large animal. Even the brothers’ staunchest supporters begin to have their doubts about who—or what—could have done it.

As the brothers fight to clear their names, things are complicated by unexpected opportunities to indulge their lust. Isaac is intrigued by a handsome newcomer to the village, and a vivacious visitor is happy to offer Matthew her all.

Can the men prove their innocence, or is their centuries-old secret about to be revealed to the outside world, bringing their carefully-crafted existence crashing down around their ears?

Please note: This book has been previously published under the title Pack of Lies. The content remains the same.

My View:

So… I was really enjoying The Persecution of the Wolves. The characters were interesting, the location was interesting, and the mystery had me stumped. We had some hot love scenes, mf and mm, and some lonely wolves finding some solace. The writing was good and although there were a few details that I questioned, I was really into it and wanted to find out whodunit. Unfortunately the ending ruined it for me.

I can’t say why I disliked it without spoiling the book entirely. Even saying, this is not a romance and there is no happily anything in the end, may give too much away. It is a decent werewolf book, though I would have liked more wolf time. It is a book about a community and two very long lived creatures trying to make their way in the world.

However, the ending drops my rating. I just did not like it at all.
