Sabine - Book Review by Voodoo Bride

Sabine (...and the Beast #1)
by Moira Rogers

ebook, novella

What is it about:
After three years at war, the High Lord of the Forest returns to his lands, a victorious wolf leader intent on claiming his mate. Instead Ciar finds an empty bed and a court with no recollection of the woman he loved. Following her long-cold trail proves far easier than facing what awaits him at the end.

Sabine’s first instinct is to beg her beloved to leave. The High Lord’s mother hired a witch to curse Sabine, desperate to wipe the lowborn wolf from her son’s mind. But the spell worked too well, and Sabine has vanished from the thoughts of everyone who sees her. Including her own family.

The edges of his memory already blurring, Ciar and Sabine must race to find a way to reverse the spell. Yet every searing moment together is not enough to stop the curse’s inexorable progress. His only chance is to bind Sabine to him too tightly to be forgotten, before she disappears once and for all.

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
This is a light, delightful paranormal fairytale.

The blurb gave me the idea this story might be a little dark, but it wasn't. Instead it was maybe even a bit too light. I never really felt the despair Sabine had of losing Ciar forever.

That being said: The romance between Sabine and Ciar is hot and sweet and they were characters I could care about and wanted to have a happy ending. There are some really heated scenes between the two of them and those were the best parts of the story.

All in all this is a very enjoyable read with a lovely fairytale feel.

Why should you read it:
If you're in the mood for a romantic fairytale with shapeshifters this is your read.
