Wildlanders Woman: First Book of the Wildlands By Jenycka Wolfe

    I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    The only thing I didn't like about this book was that Ava didn't really make smart choices..

    But overall I quite enjoyed this installment in the Wildlanders series.

    Jodah of course is still my favorite.. hehe. I like that this book goes in depth with the relationship between Killian and Daven, they're so adorable together.

    I also liked that in the end Ava's dumb choices didn't ruin anything like I feared it would.

    Warning: This book contains VERY mature scenes! Definitely for a reader who's 18 or older. Wildlanders Woman: First Book of the Wildlands I WAS GIVEN THIS EBOOK BY THE AUTHOR FOR AN HONEST REVIEW…

    This book follows on from 'Wildlanders' woman: First possession'…

    I have no idea where to start…

    I truly enjoyed reading this book. I'm looking forward to what comes next…

    I was Blaise's personal cheer squad in this one. Tears flowed freely in a few places. When I got to the last page I wanted more.

    Eagerly awaiting more :) Wildlanders Woman: First Book of the Wildlands 1st read = 4 stars
    2nd read = 3 stars

    I recommend you read the free prequel on Smashwords first. It's called, First Possession. Otherwise you feel like you're missing an important part of the story when starting this book (which you are).

    This is one of the better poly/harem books I've read. There's a decent story in-between the many sex scenes. Those are well written by the way, giving enough details to make it enjoyable, and enough variety to keep it interesting.

    This is a story of a young woman who's forced to leave behind her civilized life, to make a completely new one in a harsh land. She's mated to a clan of 4 men. I liked Jodah, Killian, and Daven. It took me a long while to warm up to Blaise. Even Ava was difficult to like for the majority of the story. Not until the last couple chapters, did I come to really like either one of them. Blaise came across as too harsh and unforgiving. Ava struggled with letting go of her sexual inhibitions. She develops an addiction as her way of coping with her feelings of shame and her fears. I couldn't relax and enjoy the story, knowing that eventually she'd be found out and then stuff would hit the fan (which it does in a big way).

    So why did I lower it a star? I had to push myself to keep reading. It wasn't as enjoyable as the first time I read this. Ava is so negative about everything, even though she does slowly come to accept and even love her new life. The ending is the best part. I would definitely give the last 10% 4-stars for sure.

    Due to a personal tragedy, the author stopped writing. I would have read the next book if there was one. Sad that this series ended on a bit of a cliffhanger. Wildlanders Woman: First Book of the Wildlands I loved the world building, I didn't have those moments where your brain picks up an error and it niggles as you for the next chapter or you have to go back and make sure that you understand context or characters. The book flowed for me, I won't do a detailed recap of the story aside from to say that Ava is thrown out of they city as a Tribute Bride and is claimed by a clan of wildling men. Her struggles to adapt to her new circumstances and the fact that she is married to 4 men made for a really enjoyable read. She was not the perfect heroine, she had her faults (YAY!!!)and my heart ached for Blaise so much so that I had to put the book down and go make a cup of tea so I did not start muttering at my tablet like a demented woman!

    I loved that the men were not scared to touch each other and that their relationships carried on developing with each other and that the moment a woman arrived on the scene they suddenly don't want the partners that they have been happy with nor that they cannot evolve into deeper relationships with each other as well as Ava. I felt that the fact that the men had different inclinations really helped with the story that they were not cookie cutter characters floated my boat. Wildlanders Woman: First Book of the Wildlands Ava was supposed to become someone's wife, but a day before the wedding, her 'fiancé' changed his mind, thus branding Ava as someone unwanted. And as all the other 'unwanted' women like her, Ava was exiled from the city and made a Tribute bride, which means she was given to four strangers from the wildlands , to become their wife.
    The story was really confusing at the beginning and it took me some time to put all the pieces together and figure out what was happening. Having read the book, I still don't quite understand all the aspects of the world and the working of the society.
    The story itself wasn't that original, but the execution was done nicely enough (again, sans the beginning) and I enjoyed the book while reading. And even though I was sure I wouldn't read any following books in the series, the ending made me curious enough to maybe change my mind. Wildlanders Woman: First Book of the Wildlands

    This is the bundled edition of First Possession: Prequel to Wildlanders' Woman and Wildlanders' Woman: First Book of the Wildlands.

    It was done. Ava Cosgrove, Maiden of Arcadia was no more. Now, she was simply Ava, Wildlander Tribute Bride.

    Ava has been given as bride to the men of the Wildlands, a harsh, unforgiving place where Dark creatures roamed free and peace only a memory. Her virginity taken in public ceremony, she's now a woman of the Wildlands, the wife to a Clan of four.

    Her body aching from her First Possession, Ava initially fears her new life. Her Clanmates, though, prove to be tender and caring, seeing to her every need out of the bedchamber and lovingly awakening her flesh inside of it. These mates - powerful, unbending Blaise; fierce but sensitive Jodah; mischevious, lighthearted Daven and gentle, masterful healer Killian - all stir her in their own ways, yet she struggles to come to terms with the idea of falling in love with more than one man.

    Ava slowly works to adjust to this strange new place, in a culture that reveres, rather than disdains women, where magic is not unheard-of, and violent death is an accepted part of life. As a rash of attacks from the fearsome Dark creatures that her Wildlander warriors are sworn to fight threatens both her community and her own Clan's lives, Ava must look into herself and find strength she did not know she possessed to fight alongside her Clan. Through tragedy, betrayal, forgiveness, and failure, Ava learns not only that love does not fit into the tidy definitions she'd once believed, but that she might be capable of much more than she'd ever thought possible.

    This volume also includes the bonus novella First Possession: Prequel to Wildlanders' Woman. Wildlanders Woman: First Book of the Wildlands

    I really enjoyed Wildlander’s Woman. The story begins with Ava who lives in an extremely conservative, old-fashioned, corrupt society. Women must marry before their twenty-fourth birthday or they become a tribute for the Wildlander’s. Unfortunately (Or fortunately), she’s left at the alter weeks before her birthday. The Commissioner, an evil, evil man, commands that she is sent out immediately. So she is sent along with another young woman as Tribute.

    She finds herself bound to a Clan of four men — Blaise, Jodah, Daven, Killian. She’d already met Blaise in her home town, and she’s happy to know she’ll belong to him. But it comes as a surprise that she’s to be wife to all four. Each male has a completely different personality. You can easily tell one from another easily. Blaise was the hardest to like. I knew he tried, but oh he got me so mad at times. He’s impatient and expects Ava to understand and become a Wildlander’s wife overnight rather than allowed her the chance to ease into a new life.

    Ava herself was dealt a horrible blow when her fiancée left her, and being thrust into this kind of way of life, it’s tough. She bears it as she really has no choice, but she makes some bad choices along the way, one that leads to something much worse. In time, she gets to know each male, and falls in love with them.

    Now Sim — the man who broke off the engagement — is one nasty piece of work. This guy feels like he’s entitled and will do whatever he wants so long as he gets something out it. He has no remorse, no empathy. He’s just a complete sleaze ball. We’re left at a cliffhanger with him. I was hoping something tragic might happen to him and he’d get what he deserved.

    There was some good world building in this book, but I wish I had been able to see more of it. There are creatures lurking and we only get glimpses of these. I also wish there had been more character growth outside the ‘bedroom’. There was a lot of sex in this book. And I mean a lot. Almost every single chapter had at least one or two sex scenes. And honestly…there is an obsession with butts and anal sex in this book. I wasn’t too keen on these scenes and skimmed a lot of them. It was just too much for me. I felt that there could have been a lot more depth to this book if those had been toned down. There could have been more story.

    There is also some strange formatting with this, but I believe it’s on purpose (beginning of each chapter being centered) and it could use a proofreading. The changes in point of view are jarring at times since it will change into another character in whatever place of time without any warning. Overall, besides those and the copious amounts of sex scenes and butt sex descriptions, this was a decent book and I would read the next. There was good character growth and the start of some great world building. Wildlanders Woman: First Book of the Wildlands HOLY HOTNESS!!! This is a 5 star story but I took 1 star for the cliffhanger ending. The author did a solid job creating an interesting world for her characters to live in. Once I started reading this book I could not put it down. It kept me interested all the way to the very end.

    It is an historical type fantasy world where the Wildlanders protect the Arcadians from the dark, magical creatures of the surrounding area.

    Ava, Wildlander Tribute Bride has been given as bride to the men of the Wildlands. Her virginity taken in public ceremony was hot (see the prequel) she's now a woman of the Wildlands. Wife to a Clan of four. This novel starts where the prequel left off with Ava's first few months as Clan bride to Blaise, Jodah, Daven, and Killian. ;) I want a Clan of my own))) Every body has their place within the clan and their relationships with each other are HOT HOT HOT. Daven and Killian are in love with each other but Ava fits right in and they make it work. Blaise is completely straight but loving within a clan is expected and encouraged.

    I was given a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I look forward to more from this author.

    Wildlanders Woman: First Book of the Wildlands 3.75 stars Wildlanders Woman: First Book of the Wildlands 2.5 Wildlanders Woman: First Book of the Wildlands I really enjoyed this. It had heart. I'm a bit bummed at the cliffhanger ending though, especially since it looks like there might not be a sequel. Wildlanders Woman: First Book of the Wildlands
