The Wolf You Feed (The Vargr Clan Trilogy Book 1)
Tore Vargr finds his world turned upside down when he is forced to choose between the love of his life and the life he loves. He chooses Annike, disrespects his brother, Erik, and sets off a chain of events that shape his life in a way he could never have imagined. Outlawed from his clan, Tore embraces his new responsibilities of father and protector as he carves out a new life in a human world. But a jealous brother has a long memory and Erik is nothing if not patient when it comes to exacting revenge. When Tore’s past catches up with his present, he has to learn to pull from an inner strength. There is a battle of two wolves inside us all. One is evil: it is anger, envy, greed, arrogance, jealousy, resentment, lies. The other is good: it is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, truth. The wolf that wins? The one you feed. Cherokee proverb Spanning two generations The Wolf You Feed is the first book in a heartbreaking trilogy set in the shape shifting worlds of werewolves and skin walkers.

From the cover design to the last page, The Wolf You Feed is a well thought out, well crafted book. Built around complex characters, this intriguing world of werewolf people, shape shifters and humans is at its core a story about love of family...albeit a very broken and sometimes savage family.
I really enjoyed this unique take on the werewolf genre as it speaks to my own sensibilities of taking familiar lore and flipping it on its head.
The Wolf You Feed is worth the read!

Where do I begin, there is so much to say about this first installment, it's mind bogg nmbv bbv n hnhb ling. This book has so many different fascist to it. there is young love, betrayal, revenge, tragedy and that's just the first few chapters. If that doesn't give you any clue at all to the depth of this story, I don't know what else would. The character development was very thorough, you can feel what each one is feeling. I love that because it feels like your right there with them. To me there is nothing better, of course it also makes you not want to put the down. So be prepared, you may want to get any pressing chores out of the way before you start.
This is a journey of a young shifter male becoming a worthy man, as he faces strong adversity. I have fallen in love with Tore, he is a perfect male with the struggle's he has come up against, he is still strong & worthy. Life has laid a lot at his feet that any man shifter or not would have a hard time handling. It's a show of his true self that he survives for the better. This story is as close to an epic saga as you can get, I was exhausted when it ended. Even though I wanted to pull my hair out because this journey is not over & I am so ready to keep going.
Angela Stevens has written a wonderful tale richly interwoven with Native American symbolism & lore. Definitely worth whatever the price, you will not regret this read. I know because this is the first time I've read this author and I can assure it will not be the last.
ARC***for honest review.

I was given a PDF of this novel for a fair and honest review. Reading The Wolf You Feed was a breathtaking experience and after having read it I will never be able to think of werewolves in the same way again. Above all I will never forget having met Tore, the Everywolf, who lives through hell while searching for the heaven we all crave.

The human attributes that Angela Stevens gives these creatures make for a stunning novel packed to the rafters with love, lust, heartbreak, hatred, betrayal and the slowly emerging truth that endurance, patience and simple understanding are the only way forward in this brutal, vengeful and evil world.

Though the story arc of The Wolf You Feed wends through two more installments before coming to an end, there’s still plenty of plot in book one. In fact this is one of the most richly told paranormal fantasies I’ve ever read, with one stunningly realized and surprise plot turn after another, and flesh and blood characters real enough not just to be compelling, but to be unforgettable.

Fans of shapeshifter stories get a double dose of fun with the intersecting story threads of the werewolf clan and the skinwalker clan. Seeing both parties work their magic and charm is a powerful page-turning motivator as you can imagine with a story of this type. But the factor I found most compelling was the author’s highly unique take on the genre. She reverses the A and B stories, putting the relationships between the clan members and the brothers, sister, and wives around who this story revolves front and center throughout, and relegates the blood, gore, battles, and vengeance part to the background stage. While that might seem a counterintuitive choice, especially for male readers who tend to live for that stuff, I was never more engrossed in a paranormal fantasy involving shapeshifters as I was in this one. These are werewolves we’re talking about, after all; they share a psychic connection, a sense of brotherhood and family that so transcends what most of us enjoy in the real world that it’s like coming home, only better; it’s returning to a home we never had and only wish we had. And this despite the fact that danger forever lurks around the corner, and the characters live the harshest of lives. When the big conflicts come, they’re epic, and we see the value of letting the suspense build rather than rushing to the next blood and gore session programmatically, and in a way that might have offered cheap genre-expected thrills, but would have meant forgetting the read as rapidly as we put the book down when it blended with every other tale just like it.

I am not a reader of shape shifter type stories typically. But this book drew me in from the first chapter. The author creates characters that I just fell in love with and others I simply hated. She has the ability to form characters that bring out emotions in the reader.

This story does not follow the norm of wolf stories that has moved into modern culture. Instead the author follows a more logical approach. The blend of culture is done in a fantastic way. I was so impressed with the Native spin brought into the story and how much respect was shown in the writing. I can appreciate and see the amount of research and work the author put into this story.

I am anxiously waiting for book 2!!!

This story had me enchanted from the start till finish! I was pulled inside by the lead characters intense love & then BAM Angela hits you in the face with some pretty intense emotional scenes. I will admit to having tears more than once whilst reading 'The Wolf you Feed'. This is book 1 in Angela's "The Vargr Clan" trilogy, I can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy.

I loved the interplay between the lead charaters, loads of action, changing POV's, the darkness, love, conflict, guilt, remorse, detailed descriptions, histories... it all came together in one very thought out Paranormal read. I felt as if I was sucked inside the story of Torre & his family, through all the ups & devastating downs. I can't wait to read what happens next for Torre in the next book.

Louise Williams

This is the most grippng shifter novel I have read in a long time. I Could not put it down until I had finished it. The emotion just poured off the page and ypu could Tore's grief as he stood at his wives and friends grave. When a book makes you feel inside what the character does in the book you know it's going to be good. It also puts a different slant on the shifter genre but different in a good way. Highly recommended.

Marigold

Epic family drama with werewolves. If that doesn’t grab your attention, I don’t know what will!
By epic, I’m referring to the great swathes of time the story covers: about sixteen years by my reckoning. During this time we see Tore defy his clan for the sake of love, rescue a friend and tries to build a new life, only to have tragedy dog his steps. The family dynamics are compelling and play out like a classic drama: power struggles, heirs, pride, usurpers and revenge are the names of this game.
The title is a reference to a famous Native American proverb that is really the mantra of the story, which makes me think of it as like a fairy-tale retelling in a way. You can read a condensed version of the proverb in the blurb below.
I enjoyed The Wolf You Feed a lot, more than I expected since it’s such a unique mix of genres. Because of the epic nature of the story there were moments where I tuned out a little (I’m sorry, I can’t help it! It just happens...) but I can definitely recommend this to other readers.
Recommended for lovers of family dramas, or those wanting to read a different kind of urban fantasy.

Nick (Al-Khemet Book Club)

This a great book filled with love, loss and jealousy. "The Wolf You Feed" is book one of trilogy and is focused on the coming of age story of the main character Tore. It is also centered on the consequences of the choice he makes when he decides to forsake his clan for the girl he loves. He must endure trials and hardships as he runs from his clan that wants to punish him and his brother that wants to see him suffer and die. All told through the masterful writing style of Angela Stevens.

A truly gripping tale that is more than just the typical fantasy tropes. Great character development and interesting plot. Recommended.
