Lila's Wolf (Revised) by Sofia Grey


When Lila Cammell is abandoned by her time-jump partner, leaving her alone in Britain in the Dark Ages, revenge is the only thing on her mind. She’d trusted Jared Grohl with her life and her heart, and bringing him to justice will be sweet.

Finding him captured and enslaved by the Saxons changes all her assumptions. Now it’s a fight for survival, but the only way to save him, might be to leave him behind.

Where to Buy





I reviewed this title a few months ago, but the author has just released a revised version and I agreed to have another look at it. You can read my previous review here. Overall nothing much has changed with my review because I honestly didn't notice anything major that has changed with the book. The plot is still the same, the characters are largely still the same, though we might get a slight bit more on some of them. I think mostly it's been tightened up so that some superfluous stuff has been taken out and the whole thing flows just a bit smoother than it did. I also didn't notice any of the seeming anachronisms I commented on before, but that could be because I sort of expected them so didn't notice or pay so much attention to them. I don't really know what exactly was changed in this version to comment on things more precisely. I can say that I think this new version is improved a bit and is a smoother read, so I definitely still recommend it and the series as a whole as well.

You may wish to read Marc's Conflict first if you want some background on Marc that helps explain some of his actions here, but it isn't necessary. This one is fully understandable on its own.

Note: I received a free ARC of the revised version in exchange for an honest review. I purchased the older version that my main review was written about.

Marc's Conflict by Sofia Grey


Marc has been accepted as a ghardian, one of the elite soldiers who protect the timelines of the future. He's eager to prove himself and experience combat on his first training op to Ancient Europe: joining the conflict and fighting alongside the Gauls against the Roman invaders.

A true ghardian puts his emotions aside, and functions purely on logic, but that lesson is easy to forget in the heat of battle, especially when Marc's closest friend is in danger.



Where to Buy




This novella serves as a prequel to the rest of the series. It tells the story of how Marc became a ghardian, shows us his first major test in the line of duty, and establishes the beginnings of his relationship with Lila to help set the stage for the next book. In the process he comes to see that, unlike what he's always been taught, emotions aren't always a bad thing and that sometimes rules are meant to be broken.
