Review for the Shadow of the Witte Wieven

This was so interesting. I love how Debbie Peterson took every day superstitions, like the Bermuda triangle, and turned them into this amazing story. I really enjoyed that part of this book a lot.

The relationship between Aliyana and Wolf was so much fun to read. I found myself really rooting for Wolf. Aliyana always seemed too afraid to admit her feelings, and I was highly entertained with her jealousy during one part.

This was a book full of interesting characters, daring missions, and romance. I enjoyed every moment, and I absolutely loved the ending. I wonder, will this be the last voyage for the Witte Wieven, or will Peterson choose to continue the story. Either way, this book is now tucked among my favorites.!

Review for the Shadow of the Witte Wieven

This was a fun, exciting read! Historically speaking, I am not a sic-fi reader, unless the hook is original enough to grab my attention. And Debbie Peterson scored with me. I love time travel novels. Love, love, love them. And this book had some magical elements that made this book feel a lot less "Star Trek" and a lot more "Superheroes meets fairy tales" for me. The crew members of the Witte Wieven all had abilities that helped the heroine, Aliyana, complete her mission. This added a really fun camaraderie between characters that I enjoyed. I love books with a great ensemble of characters, and Shadow of The Witte Wieven had that in spades. Plus...the hero, Wolf, was very sexy, very chivalrous, and very compelling. I loved his character, and wish I could have read more about him. I, for one, would read an entire book of Wolf backstory. I'm just sayin....(do you hear that, Ms. Peterson??) Overall, a great book, with great characters, and light enough to be categorized as a "fun" read. Well done!

Review for the Shadow of the Witte Wieven

My thoughts on the book Shadow of the Witte Wieven by Debbie Peterson was so much different than most paranormal romance books.  No vampires, werewolves, or witches but let me tell you she gave me a story that I never even missed them.  Aliyana Montijo is a undercover DEA agent deep into a Colombian drug cartel.  After gaining information she had to steal a airplane in order to escape.  But situation changed over the Bermuda Triangle and she happened upon Wolf and his crew members.  Throughout her recovery she finds out things about them that would have normal people jumping overboard.  Wolf and his crew help her in her quest to bring down  the drug cartel.  Along the way they fall in love.  We are privileged to get a front row seat on their amazing journey of love, mystery, and intrigue.  Do not miss out on this wonderful story you will not be disappointed.  The inability to put down this book will have you immersing yourself completely in this amazing book.

Review for the Shadow of the Witte Wieven

When Shadow of the Witte Wieven became available for review, I almost passed it up. It wasn't because I didn't want to read it, I did. It's exactly the sort of story I love to read. I just wasn't sure that I had time for it. Well, I am very glad that I did not pass up the opportunity to read this book. I loved it!

Aliyana Montijo is a DEA agent on assignment to gather information against Emil Mercado, a known drug lord for the Columbian cartel, by posing as a security specialist hired to install a new security system at Emil's compound. On the day she finishes the job she knows that Emil won't let her leave so she escapes in Emil's Twin Otto plane only to encounter a dark storm cloud. She ends up crashing, after landing the plane in the water. Wolfaert Dircksen Van Ness, captain of the Witte Wieven, having seen Aliyana crash, rescues her.

What Aliyana isn't aware of, at first, is that she is no longer in her own realm, she's in the in-between. With Wolf's and his crew's help, they return Aliyana to her own realm. However, they wish to help her with her assignment and that's where the adventure begins.

Wolf and his crew have unique abilities that help with Aliyana's mission. I found this part of the story particularly fun and fascinating. Also, since Wolf and most of his crew are from the 1600s they have a more proper way of speaking which I enjoyed. It sort of gave the story a historical feel. The romance aspect didn't come about right away but was really sweet. Apart from the fact that there were a couple of actions that were repeated perhaps too often, and that aspects of the story could have been drawn out just a little more, there wasn't anything that I disliked.

I really enjoyed this book. There were moments where I laughed and others were I cried. If you like light romances with adventure and suspense, give Shadow of the Witte Wieven a try. I don't know whether there will a sequel but I certainly wouldn't object if there was. :)

I give this book a 4.5 rating.
