Review: Banewolf by Eden Ashley

Dark Siren Book 2
by Eden Ashley
YA Paranormal
395 pages

New enemies are made.

New allies must be forged.

Kali is beginning to regain her memories. In doing so, she discovers old secrets and betrayals that threaten to unravel her present and shake the foundation for Rhane’s belief in her innocence. While her maturing abilities present unique challenges, a bigger problem arises when Kali learns her ex-boyfriend has made a misguided deal with the enemy in order to win her back—a decision that may ultimately cost him his humanity.

Keeping Kali safe has become a full time job for Rhane. And struggling to gain control of the immortal Banewolf isn’t making that task any easier. The power to eliminate the growing threat against Kali lies at Rhane’s fingertips, but using it means risking his friends to the insatiable blood lust of a monster. So Rhane is forced to forge a shaky alliance with creatures he has sworn to destroy. Despite these new allies, the danger pressing on their borders intensifies, culminating in a heartbreaking and shocking finale.

The strength of the bond between young and ancient lovers will be tested…and if Kali and Rhane are to survive, they must find a way to be unbreakable.


This is a great continuation of the first book and unlike many series, doesn't loose anything when compared to book one.

Book two gives a much deeper look into Rhane. We learn more about him (which is horribly interesting) and also get a glimpse into what it means for him to be the Banewolf. And it's not necessarily all it's cracked up to be. I gained a much deeper respect for Rhane and came out of the book cheering for him more than before.

Kali also gains a nice aspect. Although she's waiting, she doesn't lean back and wait. I love how she dives into training to learn how to protect herself. She's full of spunk and life, and simply easy to sympathize with.

The story itself is fast paced and won't let the reader go (which considering the length, isn't good for those of us who like to read interesting books in one sitting.) There's action, tension, twists and turns and everything needed to keep me wondering what was going to happen next. There are still a lot of unanswered questions, so I'm expecting book 3 to maintain this high level and can't wait to see what it brings.
