I originally purchased and downloaded this book when I first bought my Kindle in 2012 as the blurb intrigued me though only read and reviewed it in 2014 due to my large reading list I was recently contacted by the author this year 2016 saying that this story had been re written in certain scenes and would I be willing to re read it I agreed However the original book had been pulled so I re purchased the newer version as I couldn t update the version I had I loved it as much as I did the first timeJimmy Walker is an intriguing character I really liked him a lot He is a teenage boy full of loneliness and angst Bullied and overweight he is struggling to find a place to fit in It s not easy when his family has just moved to a new town However a fateful encounter will change his life foreverI love the idea of shapeshifters wolves bears big cats etc and have a soft spot for these types of books I m lad the author asked me to re read it as it captured me all over again The story is an exciting roller coaster ride from start to finish The story had been a bit hard to Dark Intrusions get into originally but on the second reading I became uickly hooked it was like I was meeting old friendsI felt for Jimmy as his life unraveled and then was re built He is one of the nicest characters I have met in between the pages of a book and his bravery in embracing his heritage blew me away This story had me in tears in places again andiggling in others The interaction between Jimmy and the other characters especially his younger brother was extremely touching Even his new friends and pack members Fen Loki and Geri are interesting characters Their personalities are all different and they each have their own problems and angst issues The story is told from Jimmy s point of view and takes the reader through an amazing journey full of twists and turns I have always been interested in the spiritual beliefs of the Native American people and the author seems to have the same interest He also seems to have done a lot of research or has had some experience in Shamanism His descriptions of the rituals and practices brought them to life He made me want to find my spiritual inner animalWalking Wolf Road is an intriguing blend of myth and coming of age tale Unfortunately there are a few proofreading errors where the scenes were re written and which were not caught before publication I have notified the author about them but they did not detract from my enjoyment of the tale The end of the book has a slight twist that I hadn t expected originally but it made an interesting conclusion to a most intriguing urban fantasyBrandon M Herbert has written an exciting urban fantasy that kept me highly entertained I loved his writing style which on the second read through felt fast paced than originally and it flowed wonderfully I would definitely read of this author s books in the futureI highly recommend this book if you love YA pararnormal shifter or urban fantasy enres lynn worton i or urban fantasy enres Lynn Worton I Decade of Despair given this book to review through the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Fanatics R2R for an honest review thank youJimmy Walker s step father has once again uprooted the family and moved them to a small town in Colorado Over weight insecure and depressed Jimmy feels aimless and alienated from everyone His life takes a sudden drastic turn when he is viciously bitten by a strange creature during the Full MoonUnexplainable transformations start to happen to Jimmy and his dreams are haunted by a white wolf Jimmy is soon sought out by Fen a fellow student andiven information about the changes that leave Jimmy thinking Fen and Fen s friends are crazy But the bizarre changes happening to Jimmy aren t stopping and he fears he is losing his sanityview spoilerThe changes that happened to Jimmy as he rew aware of his wolf were fascinating It happened like I imagined something like it would happen and I liked how the author went into depth and slowly revealed what was happening to Jimmy I d imagine the majority of people would act just like Jimmy did if they were bitten by something strange You d possibly think you had rabies but then weird things start happening to all your senses your body starts changing and to top it off some person tells you that you re changing into a mythological creature One you re afraid #But Don T Want # don t want admit it Two you re probably in a lot of pain Three the bodily changes are leaving you confused about what s happening Four strange people who confront you or act like they know what is oing on are Go-Go-Go! getting on your nerves And five the dreams and visions make you think you reoing crazyExcept at the start of the story the author did a Somato Respiratory Integration Workbook good job of indicating at the very beginning of a new paragraph if Jimmy was having a vision or dream I had problems identifying dream or waking scenes if they weren t spaced out with extra lines between the paragraphs or didn t use italics My preference is to have either a few blank lines separate something like the dreams and visions from waking life And the author did a better job of indicating the separateness the further weet into the book I loved the little wolf paw prints separating some sections those were cuteOne thing I wish was that there could have been a much different tone set between the dream state and the waking state I liked how the dream state was usually written but I would have liked the waking state to feel concrete real We are told rather than shown Jimmy s state of mind and hi.

S feelings rather than feeling them ourselves I really wanted to et into Jimmy s emotions but the way the author wrote the story I was kept at a distance I wanted to really feel Jimmy s horror at the changes happening and his anxiety and his fears and Jimmy s strong feelings of insecurity of being unwanted by anyone Instead the emotions were conveyed on an intellectual level but not at a وصف الاستعباد في مملكة فاس - مذكرات أسير سويدي على عهد السلطان مولاي عبد الله gut or heart level One of the times I felt strong emotion is the significant event that surrounds Fen about half way through the book That was heart wrenching If the author had shown those kinds of feelings instead of telling of emotions then this book would have been a lot better I also felt emotion when Jimmy found his Dad and all that happened around that time Since I felt emotion coming from those scenes it makes me wonder if the author did really lose a close friend or have to ever find a lost parent Anyway I think my main disappointment is the distance from Jimmy s feelings However the author did do aood job of describing the environment and scenery where emotion wasn t necessary Not overly done or under describedThe relationship between Jimmy and his younger brother Jacob or Jake is very touching and heartwarming The author did a Fiend good job of showing us how close the two brothers were and how protective of Jimmy is of JakeWhat I found interesting was that the authorradually revealed to us that Jimmy was bisexual He had feelings for both Fen and Loki I don t think I ve read a YA book before where a teenage Voice of Conscience guy realized he was bisexual I was surprised and happy the author brought it up in the story It wasn t made a big deal but the fact that Jimmy was in love with two of his pack mates plays an important part of the storyThe author slowly reveals to us the history of werewolves and what it means to be a werewolf through the dreams visions and through the teachings of Fen Fen is intelligent but also closed off We slowly learn about him throughout the book In the end I felt sorry for Fen he was a wolf that had lost his way and was handling things the best that he knew howJimmy s other two pack mates are Loki the Beta and Geri the Omega Of course there is the high school bully Jack and his sidekicks Malcolm and Bo The author did aood job of showing us the personalities of the other characters through Jimmy s eyes We eventually meet people tied to Jimmy s biological father s side that help Jimmy PROBE MY ASS (A Reluctant Doctor/Patient Anal Sex erotica story) grow further on his journey The characters in the story were not perfect everyone was flawed but most of the charactersrew and some regressed The character development was well done Walking Wolf Road was filled with the mythology of werewolves Shamanism and philosophy All of this hit exactly the right spot for me I thoroughly enjoyed this book Even though the background of the book was centered around high school it wasn t really about high school it went beyond that I suppose the story could end where it did but there are some lines that indicate that the story could continue on I for one would be very happy to be pulled back #Into This Again My # this world again My complaint is that I d like to have the feelings shown rather than told I d really like to feel what Jimmy feels I would like to The Pedlar and the Bandit King (Scarlet and the White Wolf, give this book 5 stars but because of this one major issue about the book I can onlyive 4 stars However I d recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a YA paranormal book laden with uniue wolf mythology and spiritualism and has a male MC who is not overly whiny This is a book that I would read again and I would read a seuel if the author ever decided to write one hide spoiler First let me start by saying that Walking Wolf Road wasn t in my usual Marvins Room genre I had no idea what to expect in an urban fantasy but thankfully I was not disappointed Herbert managed to deliver a very engrossing and personal story about a young man with a lot of inner conflict I found myself relating to him and his experiences as well as his coping mechanisms He made me feel like I was in highschool againThe writing style allowed me too beyond seeing through Jimmy s eyes From early in the book I began to feel like I WAS Jimmy The character was portrayed in a very emotionally rich fashion which allowed for a lot of build up and ultimately a much Roberto to the Dark Tower Came greater payoff later in the book His exploration of self is something that I think we allo through at that age though not all of us et the answers we d like I enjoyed the relationships he formed with his friends especially the unlikely ones no spoilers here and the unexpected way they developed over the course of the book The characters all held a sense of self and Herbert s strong literary voice kept me engaged the whole way through I also really Enjoyed The Native American the Native American and mysticism throughout It really ave a original take on the fantasy approachWhat was most impressive to me however was the way the plot culminated in the end Several different plot threads had been established up to that point and many things were hinted at and foreshadowed There were so many uestions Pink Ribbons, Inc. going into the final stretch that I was unsure if Herbert would be able to answer them all and provide a satisfying end to the book Not only did he answer the uestions I d formed throughout he delivered an ending that I was unable to predict He kept the tension high right up to the end and provided areat finale using all of the elements he began building from the start Needless to say I was satisfied with the conclusion and I am.
