#BookReview – Oath Breaker by Shelley Wilson @ShelleyWilson72

I am indebted to Shelley Wilson.


Last year I was encouraged to read her Guardians trilogy, Young Adult Fantasy fiction. This is a genre I have never been pulled towards in the past. But, as a fan of Shelley’s blogs, I thought I’d give them a go.

I wasn’t disappointed at all!



Thrilled to meet Shelley at the Annual Blogger’s Bash in 2016 and 2017 (captured above)! She’s the tall one!!!


In fact, since then, I have read a few others from the YA Genre, including Sacha Black’s Keepers, and I haven’t been disappointed.

I was thrilled to hear that Shelley had written a new story, which would develop into another series of books, Oath Breaker.

Now YA fantasy fiction is one thing. Werewolves are another. I have to confess (sorry Shelley) but Twilight and the suchlike have never been on my radar, and I wasn’t sure how I would enjoy this…


Shelley, why did I even doubt you?

The blurb…

Will she follow the pack…
Or will she destroy them?
A dead mother.
A violent father.
A missing brother.
When Mia’s father is murdered, it’s her estranged uncle that comes to the rescue, but what he offers her in return for his help could be worse than the life she is leaving behind.
Taken to Hood Academy, a unique school deep in the forest, she discovers friendships, love, and the courage to stand on her own.
As she trains hard, Mia takes the oath that seals her future as a werewolf hunter, but not everyone wants Mia to succeed.
Screams in the night. Secret rooms. Hidden letters. Mia becomes an important piece in a game she doesn’t want to play.
Will the truth set her free, or will it destroy her?

Oath Breaker by [Wilson, Shelley]

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Imagine living a life of fear, and then watching the object of your fear, gruesomely murdered in front of your eyes?
Then being whisked away to an unfamiliar world, filled with mythical creatures, secrets and betrayals?
That was Mia’s life.
I have to say I loved this book and was pulled into the story of Mia’s life from the off.
There’s love, hate, friendship, hardship, and mystery… All great ingredients for a novel of this genre.
I was rooting for Mia from the off, and my support for her never waned. Not wanting to give any spoilers away, I was thrilled with the ending, and it’s left me thirsty for more.

    A very enthusiastic review Ritu. However, I think I will be checking out her non-fiction and motivational books. More up my street than YA, especially as I am an OA.

    Oh, Ritu! You’ve made my day 😁 What a fabulous review, thank you so much. I love tempting readers over to the dark side, oops, I mean paranormal/fantasy side 🤪 and they discover how magical it can be. OB was a book I poured my soul into and I’m delighted you could connect with Mia’s story. I will be grinning all day now. Thank you x
