First, I would like to thank Turn the Page Tours and the wonderful Elodie Harper for the opportunity to tour with them for the second installment of the Wolf Den Trilogy, The House with the Golden Door. This is an Adult Mythology book with adult themes, please check trigger warning to see if this is a book and/or series that you would be interested in partaking in. I was gifted a physical copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions of this book are my own and I did not recieve any form of conpemsation for them.
Ok, let me be completely honest. Going into this book, I didn’t know it was a sequel. There, I said it. Now that we aired out my dirty laundry. We now know that I had to back track because, ya girl was lost. Like dropped in the middle of the forest and told to find your way home with a needle and a bottle of water lost, ok. However, after I bought and devoured Wolf Den, then turned around and devoured The House with the Golden Door, lemme tell you. I need book three immediately!
*SPOILER ALERT* – Please stop reading here if you haven’t read this book yet!
This is Amara’s Story. In this story, she finds herself. She’s not the scared, timid, shy little thing she was in the first installment. Here she is a free woman ready to spread her wings, or is she? She is only as free as she lets herself be, be her decision making skills keeps her trapped in Felixes clutches when she returns for her best friends. Now, that dark shadow that she thought she has rid herself of follows her every step around the streets of Pompeii.
Amara finds a love interest in her new patron’s slave Philos, and I smelled trouble from the moment it happened. They were just too cozy. New love, Victoria, Britanica, life is a little too comfortable. Smells like trouble to me. Add Rufus (the new patron) being occupied by a new girl, yeah something is up. And what do you know, the two tramps are back-stabbers. They are feeding Felix all of Amara’s secrets, he knows what makes her tick, knows all her weaknessess. And just to add insult to injury, Rufus decides to take an interest in Amara again. Guess what she just did? She just had Philo’s baby. Guess what Rufus is doing? Taking Amara to freaking Rome… without the baby… I just can’t.
Where the hell is book three? Because I’m gonna have an aneurysm.
