Because what you did was dykey af lmaoactual rating 25 This was a very good historical romance It was set within Native America slightly after the civil war The heroine is captured by a rival tribe's war chief To say would be a spoiler The plot was very good and kept me reading the book whenever I had a spare minute I loved the ingenious ending I also liked learning about Native American culture The Crow actually spoke a dialect of the Sioux language thanks Wikipedia so it makes sense that the two tribes would be able to communicate so easily The information about how feathers were given for certain behaviors was completely new to me and fascinatingI won this book in a Goodreads giveaway but that has not impacted my review Amazing love story about bravery forgiveness and taking chances Uniue and captivating historical romance I read the entire book in one sitting couldn't put it down I've already bought three other books from this author as well and I can't wait to read them Fast paced action packed and entrancing Running Wolf is a captivating romance about two star crossed lovers and the treacherous trials they face in the name of love RT Book Reviews 4 stars I'VE READ PLENTY OF NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN ROMANCES BUT I RARELY TOUCHED ONE WHERE THE MCS' ARE OF THE SAME RACE MOST AUTHORS ALWAYS PAIR AN INDIAN WITH A WHITE I ENJOYED THIS ONE VERY MUCHRUNNING WOLF is a Sioux who captured Snow Raven by accident during the raid of her tribe Circumstances made her his captive and for some reason he's very possessive of this female who appeared different from any other An enemy who can hunt trap and track as well as any man the Sioux believed her to be a witch Running Wolf knew better and he's very much attracted to her strength and beauty For the first time this brave and indestructible war chief faces a dilemma of the heart and mind torn between keeping Raven safe from his own people and taking on the duty of marrying another woman becoming the leader of his tribe Running Wolf never betrayed Raven given how protective he was even when she escaped him Passion runs high and the chemistry between them was tangible almost leaping from the pagesSNOW RAVEN is an unconventional Crow Indian She rides hunts and does what any male of her tribe doesperhaps a little overindulged by her Father the famous Six Elks Chief As his daughter she had liberties that other females didn't One day Sioux riders came to raid their tribe and she was caught by accident while saving her grandmother Trying to face her fate like a brave little warrior she never expected to fall for the Sioux male who captured her They were enemies yet that doesn't stop the heart from wanting I rather liked Raven because she's smart capable and clearly no simpering miss and NOT a doormatOVERALL it was a simple story but filled with emotions that just keeps you turning the pages and hoping to see them both get a happy ending What would have made it sweeter to me was a bit of jealous angst That always gets my blood pumping This was a pleasant surprise like when you get a gift on a non gift giving holiday It is so well researched the couple is believable and the payoff at the end is so redemptive after all the struggling the characters endured It wasn't your run of the mill lust at first sight in the ballroom where everything is light and fluffy It is gritty It gets a little intense sometimes but that just makes the ending all the sweeter Again I can't stress enough how detailed this book is As short as it is Kernan still found a way to slip in a lot of research that really grounded me Granted I still couldn't erect a teepee after reading her book but I have a much better understanding about family dynamics and clothing than I did before reading this book The Running Wolf is about two Native Americans from warring tribes Sioux and Crow a sort of Romeo and Juliet forbidden love There was an added dimension to this dynamic with both characters being very concerned about their duties to their respective tribes It upped the stakes and propelled the narrative especially at the end Just when you think everything's solved you still have 12% of the book left The amazing thing for me was that it never seemed to drag There wasn't a lull in the middle or fabricated drama at the end Every scene was meaningful and the pace was just rightI don't have too many negative things to say about this book It got a little predictable at times but that's not the end of the world If violence or physical abuse trigger you in any way I would be wary of this book Like I said it's not about lawn bowling and parties It gets very real but that's why I like it so much There are broken families and hurting people in the world and I want to see them represented in the books I read If you can get past that then I think you'll appreciate this book At the very least you'll learn something and that's always a plus in my book
