Good Continuation of the Series
Winter of the Wolf is the fourth book in the Desolate Empire series. You can read this as a standalone. While it helps if you have read the previous books, you can easily read this book first if you haven't. The book does not end in a traditional cliffhanger, but it is clear that the story does not end here. There is violence.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat all that info here. The author did a good job in catching new readers up on the series storyline thus far. In this book, and series, you find a well paced story filled with multidimensional characters and the intrigue and politics that go on within and between kingdoms. Once I started reading I had a hard time putting the book down and look forward to reading more in this series.
