Castle of the Wolf has been added to your Cart. The book takes place in the early 1800's in a castle in the middle of the Black Forest in Germany. The setting was absolutely fantastic and I really fell in love with the castle. It was dark and gothic and just stunning and spooky all in one.

His bitterness churned in their hearts, as it had for so many years. Bitterness and pain had become his companions on his lonely wanderings through the castle. No other companions than these. They understood his bitterness and pain. They understood the fear that prevented him from reaching out when happiness became possible. For a little moment it had seemed possible. For a little momen. ut that fear had been greater, older, more powerful. And now, together with him, they mourned the loss of that one chance at happiness, and the pain which nearly buckled his.

Sandra Schwab's Castle of the Wolf is a beautiful love story with a gothic feel that comes to life with twisting plots and an extraordinary assortment of characters. Fenris is a true tortured hero who makes even the reader want nothing whatsoever to do with him. Cissy's determination and subsequent love are the turning points for all involved and seeing Fen through her eyes is what breaks through his nasty façade for us. Interspersed throughout the book is poetry from John Keats and Robert Burns, among others, that gives you a closer look into Cissy's heart and gives some.

Castle Of The Wolf" was an excellent read from start to finish. It was a real change to read a historical romance set in Germany rather than England and with such a shadowy hero - Fenris spends large parts of the book avoiding Celia. Celia is an excellent heroine as she finds her niche in life, becomes courageous and tries her best to help those around her. She has spent her youth reading fairy stories and some of these are woven into the story in a charming way.

Will she unravel the secrets of the castle & redeem the beast? "A luminous fairy tale, beautifully written and brimming with poignant emotion. New York Times bestselling author Gaelen Foley.

Back in 1811, when the government auctioned the castle off after the family had unfortunately lost all rights to it, some of the later members of the Altertumsverein were already very interested in the object. You know, to make sure that such a historically important building remains the property of the town.

In order to claim her inheritance, the Castle of Wolfenbach, a crumbling ruin of solitude, secrets, and mystery, Celia Fussell must marry its former master, an enigmatic recluse. Original.

I was really excited to read this one mainly for the gothic aspects and the setting. The book takes place in the early 1800's in a castle in the middle of the Black Forest in Germany. The setting was absolutely fantastic and I really fell in love with the castle. It was dark and gothic and just stunning and spooky all in one.

Celia, called Cissy, was a very likable character. While at times a bit meek and quiet, she finds her inner ferocity and stands up for herself and what she, and those she cares for, deserve. She is headstrong and brave and while very naive initially, can see through the bad in people once it's slightly revealed. She doesn't go in denial about things, like some girls would and speaks up when it comes down to it. It takes her awhile to find her feet but once she does she doesn't let anyone walk all over her. At least not really. There are points when I wanted her to do more, but I understood why she didn't.

The master of this castle, Fenris, is who she must marry. There's a lot of similarities to Beauty and the Beast, and in fact it's mentioned by Cissy herself a time or two. Fenris isn't a beast, but he believes himself to not be a whole man and that Cissy deserves better. This is not a new theme in romance and didn't really hold too many surprises. There's the normal back and forth as he thaws a bit and then goes back to being the beast. He frustrated me plenty. At the same time I found I really did like him. Even though he was ridiculous, he still held this appeal and I understood why Cissy would genuinely care for him, even when he wasn't kind. The moments they had together, though far between, were precious and beautiful. Seeing his true self revealed his true kindness.

I wish that the mystery aspect had been brought out a bit more and developed further. It never really became a full mystery but it was what eventually tied everything together in the end. I also wish that the romance hadn't been so back and forth, but it was the center of the story. The heart of it all. This is a romance and that is the main theme. I also felt like the dialogue at times didn't fit. Some of the words used seems a bit silly and other then a few times of Fenris speaking German, I didn't really feel his German-ness, I guess. This is a minor complaint as it didn't bother me too much as I read.

I appreciate that the cover is something a little different though, this appeals to me much more then the bodice ripper covers.

All in all I found myself enjoying this one quite a lot. There was just something that really appealed to me even though adult romance isn't always my thing, I did enjoy this one. I would give it 3.5 stars.

Even though the leads sometimes speak using twenty first century words (heck, and holy cow come to mind) I enjoyed this novel, its setting is unique 19th century Germany in the deep Black Forest. The set up is well done and made perfect sense too. The characters were memorable and the story moved at a good pace.

Celia Fussell is a spinster who has recently lost her beloved father. She is something of a romantic and scholarly having translated and read fairytales throughout her whole life. She hates that she will have to live with her brother and his nagging wife but she is saved from such a fate when her father's will bequeaths a castle to her in the Black Forest of Germany. There is a catch however; she must marry the son of the original owner within four months if she is to keep the castle. Celia feels she has nothing to lose and everything to gain so she travels to Germany accompanied by a delightful widow.

When Celia arrives at her destination, she hears rumors of a monstrous man living in the castle. She is determined though and when she meets castle resident Fenris she receives less than a warm welcome.

Fenris is astounded and very angry that Celia has arrived at his castle. He did not know of the stipulation regarding the castle and furthermore wants her out as quickly as possible, he is rude and churlish. Fenris in many ways is like an injured wolf. He has caused his family to lose most of their holdings because he fought against Napoleon and was deemed a traitor. He hates himself for hurting his family. He has lost a leg in the war and has become reclusive.

Fenris has a brother, Leopold, who is handsome and debonair and at first this causes Celia to wonder which brother to marry. She is more astute than credited by either brother and she chooses Fenris as her husband.

These two have a difficult romance. Fenris is reserved and so worried about Celia's reaction to his missing leg that he is distant and hostile. His self esteem is quite low when it comes to his physical attractiveness. Celia wants a real marriage though and she tries in differing ways to reach her taciturn husband. Some are quite original.

There is a mystery surrounding the castle though and when accidents start occurring Celia's bravery and loyalty come to the rescue. She is quite the champion and she has the ability to understand the motives behind actions. Lastly the author does a fine job incorporating fairytale themes and characters into this novel. It was easy to visualize how each fairytale character corresponds with the castle residents.
