    One thought on “The Child Thief”

    1. Originally reviewed at prufreads/My rating: 4 out of 5 starsShe ran because her goddess commanded it, swearing revenge in her heart because she no longer believed in justice, whether she was sworn to it or not.~Victoria Storm**Please note, book was gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review**What a pleasant surprise! Ms. Snark initially contacted me about reviewing book 2 of this series, Hunger Moon (my review is coming soon!) but she also mentioned this novella, as it introduces the [...]

    2. WALKI'S REVIEWA pack of werewolves is hunted by hunters hell-bent on vengeance. In Albuquerque, a ghost begs Victoria Storm, their alpha, to rescue her son who has been kidnapped by a monster who eats children. Reluctantly, Victoria agrees, and while also trying to save one of her own, finds herself caught in an uneasy alliance with the very hunters who want her dead. With Victoria, Melissa Snark created a conflicted heroin and an alpha that no one intent to challenge because of her strength of [...]

    3. I received a free copy of this novella in return for an unbiased review.This book has a great hook from the first page, a bit creepy with a smatter of world building in the mix. I did feel in the next few that various mythology and supernatural terms were thrown at me a bit fast while I was still trying to get my feet with the relationship between the characters. This smoothes out as the book progresses however and I got a comfortable feel for the supernatural involved.I felt the protagonist was [...]

    4. The Child ThiefWhat a wonderful story. Melissa Snark has developed very sympathetic characters in this short story. Victoria, the reluctant alpha of her pack, is being chased by hunters determined to eliminate them all. Victoria feels guilt over the death of her lover Daniel, her parents and pack mates. Victoria is accosted by a ghost who is looking for her kidnapped child and wants Victoria's help. Unable to say no, she must leave her pack in search of this monster who steals children.The story [...]

    5. I thought it was a very interesting start to what promises to be a good series. The author has done some unconventional things with her werewolves, ensuring that this isn't just another "werewolf novel". I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys the genre. This particular novella was dark and disturbing, which is exactly how it should be considering the subject matter that was involved. I look forward to the growth of Victoria Storm as both a character and a pack leader.

    6. "The Child Thief" is the first book I've read by author, Melissa Snark. It is a novella introducing the reader to Victoria Storm, Valkyrie for her werewolf pack. The pack had been on the move ever since Jake Barrett and his pack turned against them when they believed Victoria was responsible tor the death of Jake's eldest son, Daniel.Now, her parents are dead and the surviving members of her pack are on the run. As Valkyrie she is a healer and protector; so, when the ghost of a murdered woman se [...]

    7. I was sucked into the story the moment a ghost was mentioned, which was page one. I've never read a book about shape-shifting werewolves before and I have to say . . . I enjoyed this very much! I liked the little things that made the characters believable such as catching scents and snarling. Melissa Snark's writing is perfectly descriptive, offering great visuals of the characters and everything that happens. I could see the monster (the child thief), and Victoria's transformation into wolf in [...]

    8. Victoria who is alpha of her pack has a gift were she can see spirits. This dead woman comes to her for help asking her to help her find her son who was taken by the child thief. Jasper this sweet boy and the child of the pack pushes Victoria to do the right thing and help this woman. Victoria has this hunter by the name of Jack Barrett after her. He thinks Victoria is responsible for the death of this son Daniel who was Victoria’s lover. Danger seems to be all around. Jasper gets kidnapped an [...]

    9. POWERFUL STORYGreat introduction to what I hope will be a great series. A small pack flees murderous hunters. The leader wants revenge for his son's death. The pack alpha can speak to the dead and is asked to save a young boy who has been taken by a monster. I could not put this book down. This book is not a cliff hanger, thank heaven. But there is clearly going to be many more trials for this pack and their alpha who is a werewolf and a Valkerie. I am going to go buy the next book right now and [...]

    10. This series rocks!Talk about exciting, I love this series. Lucky me got to beta read Hunger Moon before I read this intro story and I cannot say enough about both. They’re well-written and masterfully developed. Original, exciting, and so much fun. Victoria is five foot tall, fierce, smoking hot, and a female Alpha. How endearing is that? She faces real problems that the reader feels and she kicks ass too. I highly recommend this magical urban fantasy as one of the most fun ways to spend an ev [...]

    11. I am so ready for this series! What an opening for the first book, Hunger Moon! Victoria, at first seemed very weak for an alpha female. It just took the right situation for her to fall into that leadership for her pack. The detail in the description for "goat boy", I had a very clear picture and it wasn't pretty. But props to the author for it! I am not sure how I feel about Jake, but I am looking forward to learning what went down with his son. I do not usually buy ebooks, I just read the free [...]

    12. This book is not incorporated into Valkyrie's Vengeance Awesome storyNordics Gods and goddess, Valkyrie, wolfs, hunters and more. There is so much action in this book to keep anyone’s interest. Well written and self-contained story. A love story that transcends even death but at the same time has caused many lives. A monster goat like devil who steals children and feed from there fright. And then the Valkyrie who at one time worked with the hinters to rid the world of evil and are not at odds [...]

    13. Victoria Storm is more than the alpha of a nearly destroyed pack. She has lost her love to murder and her family to revenge. As Victoria and her pack seek a safe place to regroup, Victoria is asked to find a kidnapped child. She finds more than she expected. This is a very good novella and I plan to read more by this author.This novella is free on . I am purchasing the next book in the series, Hunger Moon

    14. Very very exciting and truly a great start that had my attention from the beginning. Victoria is alpha of a pack that was just about destroyed. She struggles to find a better place her group is very fond of her and its amazing the bond. She's revengeful, determined to seek out her own justice A child is kidnapped and she has been sought out to help find and the excitement follows sweet quick read and ready for more!

    15. What an impact a short novella can make. Victoria Storm rare but an Alpha of her pack, and undoubtfully a painful spot to be at with the loss that was so close to her. She has gifts and with that comes a huge responsibility even if she isn't up to it. SOme twists and excitement rolled up in a quick read frustrations surprisesI can't wait to read more.

    16. (view spoiler)[This is the prequel and a free read at Smashwords (at the moment). Gives some facts for the series too. Kind of open end (regarding the fate of the pack) so read book 2.(hide spoiler)]

    17. The Child Thief was a great quick read. Melissa Snark has done a great job of creating a new type of werewolf society while incorporating other supernatural creatures. This is a definite read full of unexpected turns. Mrs. Snark has a wonderful way of telling her story with strong descriptive elegance. I am anxiously awaiting the second part of the story.

    18. I am now going to start reading the next book. The Child Thief is a promising series I am sure to enjoy. Please read if you get a chance
