"How had she managed to summon a werewolf? She couldn't even summon her cat!"
Princess Ava Valentine was not having a good day; to begin
with a demon tries to choke her and the rest of her day
got worse. Then she is saved by a man with some interesting
tattoos, a man her grandmother refers to as an abomination -
but who was actually a werewolf. It just figures - she's
managed to summon a werewolf; She couldn't even summon her
The werewolf, Aaron by name, was a definite hunk. A wet
panty, nasty thoughts hunk and when he decides to do more
than guard Ava's body, fireworks happen.
Werewolves have been watching over Ava her entire life at
her late parents' request. Even though her Grandmother
doesn't think of them - at all - as she thinks they are
beneath her. She doesn't approve of anyone but witches
watching other witches.
This short story covered a lot of territory in its fifty
pages. Ava is much more than an apprentice witch and Aaron,
well, let's just say he is totally into the protect Ava
The Craft of the Wise was an entertaining read and the only
draw back I felt was the length. This book could however be
the first part to Finding the Book of Shadows, lots of
witchy-wolves running around, etc. Ms. Carney did a great
job and I would definitely read more from her.
