Overview

All Kendra wanted was a change.

After a bad day at work, she wants this more than anything. She goes to an old friend for comfort and decides it's time for that change to happen. So she gets a tattoo in a last ditch effort to make people see her differently. She never would've bargained for what comes next. She's seeing better than she ever has in her life. She can smell and even tell the difference between scents. She can hear a fly buzzing from fifty feet away. She's faster. Stronger.

Oh...and now she's extremely hot.

But is the price of these changes too high? And what about the shocking revelation of who-and what-her biological father really is?

Sometimes change can be good...and then there's the other times.

Had I know what the true premise of the novel was, which not even the Amazon sample alluded to, I would not have picked this novel. I believed it to be about a girl who got magical powers from a tattoo. While that did happen, it certainly wasn't the type of power I had envisioned. Aside from that, since it was what the author had in mind, Rustin definitely succeeded when he wanted to create his own spin on werewolf origins and stereotype. I appreciated his back stories and how he tied it in throughout the novel, the twists with villains, and the concept of the Knights with their Mage partners. Had this book been solely about the mages and knights, it would have appealed to me more. But that's just my personal opinion, since I tend to avoid werewolf, vampire, or angels/demons in literature. The author could have used a bit more description. While it made this book a quick read, the way he told the story, instead of showing it, didn't give the reader much to dig into beyond the surface. I do believe the characters could have used a little more depth. Though it was his intention, how characters seemed to change from the readers' first impression of them was a bit off-putting. I must say Kendra accepted things so quickly, considering only a day or 2 had passed, that it was a bit unrealistic. Yet for those who enjoy this genre of literature, this novel is worth a read. As the epilogue shows, it definitely sets itself up to become an interesting series.

Free book for review. The characters and story line is believable. I loved the good versus evil and good winning in the end. A must read.

Is an okay story. Typical werewollf byline but I like the addition of the knights and the mages, that's what makes this story unique.
