More About This Book

Overview

Sara Stanton is just a plain, 15 year old girl growing up in West Virginia. Abandoned by her mom soon after birth, all she has is her distant father as she tries to navigate her way through high school. She has never considered herself special in any way, but her life is about to change dramatically.
Starting to become a woman, she is plagued by bizarre dreams, sleepwalking and wakes to find herself in various locations both inside and out and always naked. Thinking it’s just some weird part of puberty, she starts a journal to rationalize it, and thinks one day she’ll look back on it and laugh.
She never gets the chance though as she is trapped into going to a party where she has her first experience with alcohol. It brings out her more sexually promiscuous side, as well as something else. She can only remember brief flashes of that night, but the dream she has is one she remembers vividly. It consists of her tearing apart a teenage couple in a swamp, but it’s not really her doing. She feels like she’s in someone else’s body and is just along for the ride. It causes her to wake up sick and she can’t help but notice the tang of Cajun spices.
Returning to school, she experiences stares and whispers, but no one confronts her about her behavior at the party. She thinks things might actually be okay when Sam Byrd, a boy she’s liked for years, asks her to meet him after school on Friday. Sam was at the party and fills her in on her slutty and downright creepy behavior that night.
If that wasn’t enough for one evening, Sara is then approached by a stranger, Hank, who claims to be her uncle. It seems as if he can read her mind and knows way too much about her. He explains that everything she’s been experiencing is because she’s a werewolf. Sara laughs, thinking it’s a joke until he partially shifts into a wolf in front of her very eyes. For further proof, he tells her to look up missing people and see if anyone looks familiar. There she finds the names and faces of the teens she dreamt of murdering.
The full moon comes, and she makes it through her first change without any problems. The second night is a whole different story as she comes across Sam and his ex, Amanda, making out. To make matters worse, another stranger is watching all of them and has entered Sara’s head, teasing her about the couple. After a losing a fight against herself, she attacks Sam and Amanda and they’re only spared due to Uncle Hank’s intervention.
Things continue on their downward spiral. Hank disappears to search for this mysterious stranger and leaves Sara to her own vices. Sam starts to come around and confides his suspicions to her. He believes the attack was by a werewolf, and he’s got proof. Not far from where it happened he’s found a pit full of half consumed pets and wildlife.
Sara’s dreams persist, becoming worse, and it’s in a dream that the mysterious figure that taunted her reveals his name... Angus. Though she does her best to hide it, he scares the hell out of her. He becomes an evil presence that is always with her, and she knows Sam is at risk as well. Feeling responsible for him, she stays close and does her best to discourage his belief in werewolves. When he nearly puts the pieces together, deciding that Sara is the werewolf, another unexpected event happens, changing his mind.
Hank returns just before the next full moon to find Sara and Sam involved in a steamy relationship and Angus terrorizing them. Hank’s attempts to stop any further damage fail though, and Angus shows up at Sara’s doorstep with a beaten Sam in tow, telling her to meet him at his captive’s home.
Sara goes, knowing that both Sam and her are more than likely dead. She hopes to at least learn why Angus hates her so much and maybe even save Sam. Little does she know that the information she’s seeking is really things she never wanted to know.

    A keeper

    I was entranced. In hard copy it would rate shelf space for rereading in years to come.

    non-stop for sure!

    First let me say that I am from Beckley, WV (though I live in Seattle now) and reading this book took me home :) You did a great job describing our beloved state! You definitely got me hooked on the characters, they all became very vivid in my mind. If I could offer up one suggestion... I don't think it is necessary to try so hard to emphasize the characters' accents. Subtle suggestions here and there would be enough to lead the reader but too much of an emphasis can cause some readers to loose interest after spending time trying to decipher the dialect. I am only telling you this because while I am from WV and understand what you were trying to do with the speech there were times that I had to go back and reread to get what it was you were trying to have the characters say. Even though it was pretty rough (the gore) in some spots, I am very interested to see where you take these characters.

    This was a great read.  Sara, at first, was difficult for me to like because she was so gruff and disengaged from her life.  As the story went on, she became more appealing. As she began noticing her new found existence, she became more engaged and became more powerful over her life.  The amazing descriptions of all the gore scenes are not for the faint of heart.   Be forewarned!  What I really loved was the bond between Sara and Sam as they became friends as it seemed for the first time that Sara felt true connection to another human being.  My only complaint was the ending.  Now I have to wait for Amber to write the next book!!!  Hurry up!
