The Six Train to WisconsinThe Six Train to Wisconsin by Kourtney Heintz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Six Train To Wisconsin is a psychic thriller and includes telepathy, dream walking and empaths. It opens in New York but its main setting is a small town called Butternut in Wisconsin. The Six train is a NY train line, I couldn’t quite find the reason for the book title. The book is written using the style of alternating POV chapters from Oliver and Kai.

Oliver Richter is an auditor, his wife Kai a suicidal telepath, she works in social services trying to help children in need. But she can hear all the suffering of everyone in a half mile distance and unless she can protect herself with a psychic shield she gets dangerously involved. Oliver is very worried about his wife and plans to take her away to open space with few people to help her recover because she is extra vulnerable after a child in care was murdered and she blames herself.

Oliver kidnaps Kai and takes her to his family home in Wisconsin, but it is a battle of wills, Kai is not happy and tries to leave on several occasions. Kai’s brother Caleb is a sleep-walker he can enter the minds of those close to him during their sleep, he aids Kai against Oliver who has his own demons to face in Butternut, but he must also face family and friends whom he abandoned years ago.

Attempts to fix Kai and reconcile their relationship are stretched to the limit when a local boy is kidnapped. The whole town is searching, Kai believes her powers will help her find him, but danger lurks.

This is quite an intense read, the constant feuding and battle between Oliver and Kai is wearing to read. I did however enjoy the psychic side of the book and the build up to the intense ending of the book was very well done. The series continues in book #2. (Which I review here tomorrow)

Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis

Prince of Wolves (The Grey Wolves, #1)Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is like marmite, you either love it or hate it. I liked it, I liked the intense romance between Jacque and Fane, it was like a delicious bar of chocolate.

Fane is a foreign exchange student from Romania but when he moves to Coldspring Texas he finds his soul mate lives just across the road. There’s more to Fane than meets the eye, much more. He’s a werewolf, in fact he’s Prince of the Romanian Greys, and in Jacque he recognises his future mate.

Jacque and her girlfriends are enjoying the last few weeks before returning to high school and are excited by the prospect of a hottie student moving in. Jacque’s friends Jen and Sally are viciously loyal and support her through the madness which descends upon their lives. Everything is moving too fast for Jacque and the girls need to be there for her when another wolf challenges Fane for Jacque.

I liked the input of the Romanian words and the way the author wrote about the relationship between man and wolf, the telepathy was fun too. I’m undecided if the story had too many echoes of Twilight or just coincidences. With this being the first book in a long series I’m sure it will take on more of its own persona in the next few books. I was sad when the book ended without the couple bonding but perhaps that would have left no room for the storyline to continue.
