Roan's Fall is the first book in the Roxie's Protector's Series. It would seem that this series is tied in with Ms. Chenery's Wulf's Den series. I have never read any books by this author, and therefore did not realize that this book was part of a series. However, while reading, I noticed hints in the book that suggested that this book was part of a series, and that I had missed the stories of the secondary characters. Now, this is not to say that Roan's Fall cannot be read as a stand-alone, because it can. I never felt like I didn't get enough of the backstory to enjoy this book. I am kind of sad that I didn't do my research first, though, because Roan's Fall was excellent. I love series, and I always try to read them in order, because I become so invested in the characters and their world. I now plan on backtracking and reading the five books in the Wulf's Den series so that I can get up to speed on everything that has happened up to this point.
Ansley is a mortal woman. I found her to be a fun character. She had quite a temper and was outgoing. However, it seems that she more often than not sticks her foot in her mouth, especially around men. She was self-conscious about this personality trait. She became embarrassed easily, and that made for some cute, funny scenes.
Roan is a huge, hot, werewolf hunk. I was nearly trembling in excitement several times from the sheer size and power that emanates from him. I only wish that I was the one that he had thrown over his shoulder!
The plot was well thought out and pretty well-developed. I can imagine that if this book were extended just a bit, I would have learned a lot more. However, I am sure with the other books involved in these two series, the whole story is told, it is just spread out between the books.
I look forward to reading the books in the Wulf's Den Series, as well as any other Marisa Chenery books I can snatch up.
