Hendren: Your book came to my attention through the recommendation sent to Sarah and I via our podcast email. In the podcast , Sarah and I both buy the book. I hoped it was going to be as awesome as promised, unfortunately this young adult novel read as juvenile as its characters. There was a serious lack of decent worldbuilding, a large reliance on cliches, and a very unlikeable first person narrator.

Read the review in my blog! May contain some spoilers This book really brought up some mixed feelings. I definitely wanted to love this, since I fell in love with both the cover and synopsis. And like in any book, there were lots of pros and cons. Pros, like I mentioned, awesome cover and synopsis. But cons won the race this time. Because in order for me to enjoy this the book there should be some serious editing done. First of all, it was really hard to keep up with the story!
It felt like the characters were just running around, without any clear goal or even a purpose. I mean, seriously? Werewolves have pretty great sense of smelling, right? You heard me right. Like in the synopsis, you would think they would get some silver to reveal the werewolf. But no, they use a freaking dog whistle. There was lot of that going around, just coming up to conclusion without any kind of reason, so it really was quite hard to keep up with.
This is the last example, I promise. Makenna found out the werewolf attacking "the dead girl" was actually black. So of course she blames the "bad guy" of the school. And why would "the bad boy" attack Makenna? Well, two years earlier he asked her out, and she said no. Can you imagine that?! Okay now I seriously need to change the subject because my head starts to hurt. They were pretty one-dimensional. They were lots of going with Makenna and Ty and their friends, but nothing was really explained.
There was very little background about anyone, so it was pretty hard to feel connected. Makenna was pretty much the only character I occasionally had some feeling for. Though that was mostly me going crazy because I was so annoyed with her.
Yet Makenna dreams about her best friend, Ty, all the time. And the mr. Why does he do that?? There really was some huge potential, which why I hate to give a bad review. Though I must admit the huge cliffhanger made me curious. And pissed off. Because it was the only interesting part in the book, so it was too little too late.
My thanks to author for providing a review copy!
