I received an eARC of this book to review
Lupine by Hanleigh Bradley
“They say I’m their princess! Who are they kidding? I’m just Silver Springs Resident Orphan.
Even in Silver Springs, a town full of paranormal abnormalities, Lupine, the town’s resident orphan has never felt like she belonged.
Overworked, stressed, hair flying everywhere, Lupine is constantly on the move working with the unique children in the Silver Spring’s Orphanage. The Silver Springs human population regularly grumble to her about their parenting challenges.
They have no idea! They should try being responsible for twenty or so paranormal children. The orphanage is pure mayhem. The witches are hiding Lupine’s keys, the half-angels keep levitating up to the roof and the shifters are running rogue.
When the mafia come to town, will she finally find her home among the wolves?
Lupine is a paranormal reverse harem romance. It’s part of the Silver Springs shared universe.”
If you like:
- Paranormal fantasy (with shifters, witches, psychics, reapers, vampires, etc)
- Reverse Harem
- Companion Series Books
Then this is the book for you!
So Lupine is book 3 out of thirteen books taking place in the magical town of Silver Springs. I’ll be honest, I didn’t read books one and two about Violet and Juniper, so I couldn’t really tell you how much these books are connected, but I was able to follow the storyline of this book pretty well, so I’m proof that you don’t necessarily have to read these books in order (but would probably recommend that you do read them in order so there aren’t any gaps, but your choice).
The main character Lupine is a wolf shifter who has taken over the orphanage where she grew up along with the help from a couple of other people. The children she’s taking care of range in age from teenagers close to graduation to small kids, and they have powers of their own from being shifters to a real to being able to see glimpses into the future.
Life is going as well as it could while raising a house full of children until they get some new neighbors across the street who happen to be really hot and a little sketchy, but she feels a pull to them nonetheless. Despite the walls that Lupine tries to keep in place from the guys, they slowly show her that they aren’t as bad as she thinks they are.
Lupine is a strong, fierce woman who is willing to give her life to take care of younger people who are in a situation like she once was and raise them in a loving environment. Sure she’s a bit stubborn, but it’s a good thing because she’s willing to fight for what she believes in.
Honestly, Lupine could easily be read in a couple of hours because this story is constantly moving and you won’t want to put it down.
Happy reading until next time,
