My thoughts:

Hannah, a werewolf, had been sold by her father to the king so he can be elevated from being a pack leader to Baron. She knew her life would end in the castle once she became the king's wife. Few days before the wedding, he heard the king mention his plans to someone - to murder her right after the first night following their wedding. So she formulates an escape plan. . . and while doing castle tours, she met a very handsome shifter - Eli. 

Eli is a shifter, a slave to the king. Although he knows his way around and outside the castle, he can't leave. . . not without his sister. . . 

Wohoo! I soooo love this series! Thrown to the Wolves got new characters and settings, this is a well written prequel to the Autumn series. I usually don't like prequels, some I read in the past don't really add something important or of great significance to the story but this one is sooo gooood! Hannah & Eli's story happened in 1358, England. Yup - historical setting there, so excited to read this, love the distinct social and cultural setting, like this is another book series.

As for my theories from the first two books, some I believe were answered but it's funny because I got some more from this story LOL. Btw, I was the first blogger to have this book but I didn't want to post my review as I felt there is a need to read the first two books again. I'm officially addicted to this series!  

About the book:

NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHER: As with any Veronica Blade book, this is a ROMANCE NOVEL, meaning it's romance FIRST and everything else is secondary. 

A young werewolf must fight for her life to gain freedom, but her triumph could mean losing her only chance at happiness. 

Hannah, a seventeen-year-old werewolf, would rather be a peasant and free than dripping in jewels and wife to the tyrant werewolf king. Running from him will get her hunted, and most likely killed, yet she formulates a plan. 

While sneaking around the castle, she encounters Eli, a handsome blond shape-shifter and slave to the king. Drawn to Eli as a fellow captive, she admires his courage and honor — qualities rarely seen amongst her own kind. With him, Hannah finds rare moments of joy in the place she's desperate to escape. Though she dreams of being with Eli forever, she knows he will never abandon his sister, another prisoner of the evil king. 

Meeting in secret, Eli and Hannah's bond deepens as he trains her to protect herself. When she discovers the king’s scheme to murder her after their wedding, Hannah must choose between a short life and brief happiness with Eli or freedom and a future without him.
