So Here we go. Tour stop for The Wolf Moon by Nikki Broadwell
It is close to the winter solstice when Maeve Lewin’s simple trip to Scotland to re-unite with her mother throws her headlong into a dangerous world.
A prophecy written centuries before seems to describe her as ‘the one’, and despite Maeve’s insistence that this couldn’t possibly be true, her mother and grandmother both agree.
What Maeve doesn’t know is that her boyfriend is part of her destiny, mentioned in the ancient text as ‘the one of noble birth who will stand by her side’. But Harold’s only plan is to join Maeve Scotland for the New Year before the two of them fly home to the States.
The night of the winter solstice brings Maeve face to face with a terrifying reality, but it’s Harold’s arrival that forces her to come to terms with the truth. He seems to have lived in this parallel world before and his part in future events has been sealed as surely as hers.
With dark forces hunting her relentlessly and confronted with a fate she didn’t choose, Maeve must come to terms with her future and somehow find the strength to fulfill the perilous task set before her.

My Rating: 4 Bookworms
I received this book in exchange for an honest review and for the purposes of this book tour.
Maeve has some trust issues. In herself. How could she possibly be this person that her mother, grandmother and the wise old druid speak of? She is dead set against this trip that needs to be taken. Until Harold shows up and things start becoming more clear. Can Maeve really do these thing? Can she really be the one to save the Otherworld.
I had some issues with Maeve as a character. I didn’t read the first two in the trilogy so that might be why. Struggled to connect with her through out the book and found her a little bit too stubourn at times. Other then that though it was a really enjoyable story. It had some really interesting plot twists, and a lot of faschinating history and folk lore, which is why I love reading stories like this so much. Nikki Broadwell was so prolific in her description that I myself found myself taking journeys through the dreamtime into the Otherworld.
Harold was fantastic. Him, I had no problem connecting with. He is strong, dependable, shrouded in just enough mystery to keep a girl coming back for more. A good read for a good cold winter evening.

Interview with Nikki:
What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink? Caffe latte
What is your favourite cartoon character? Hmm..I’m sure this will date me, but I would have to say the roadrunner. I don’t watch cartoons now so can’t even think of a more current figure unless it was a character from Studio Ghibli, the Japanese anime`—if you haven’t seen them, they’re remarkable!
What is your favourite movie of all time? Would have to say ‘”The King of Hearts”. I also loved the first three “Star Wars”, “Matrix” and “The Lord of the Rings” and many many more.
What do you like to do for fun or just to relax? I love watching series and movies and I love reading. I also love to hike in wild places with my dog. Yoga and meditation are a big part of my life as is going out for lunch and having a glass of crisp chilled wine!
