Very interesting take on how it would be to turn into something you hate and then realize just how wrong you were.
Excellent writing and character development. Check it out!
am not enjoying it at all
I really loved this book! The elements in the books left me feeling very satisfied as well a feeling of wanting more. The characters of this book is what got me hooked. The main character, Brock is so fresh and brightening, that I automatically fell in love with him. You can tell right from the start that Brock is not the same as the others. His heart is so much purer than what I thought it be. He made sacrifices and never thought of himself but of others. I love that even the girl he was running with made such a significant change in his life. The plot line of this book is just filled with pure awesomeness. I love turning the next page cause I knew I would not be disappointed. Ms. Kincy did a great job in keeping the reader ensnared in her writing and taking them on a great reading adventure. I love that the reader is learning the ways of being a werewolf along with Brock. The fighting and struggle in the book really made my heart race. Ms. Kincy's writing made it very easy for the reader the fall into the world she so lovingly created. What I also liked is how Ms. Kincy added everyday prejudice stuff in the book. She wrote about the characters being prejudice against werewolves and of course finding acceptance. I really like how the characters came to understand Brock and what he is going through. This is a great book! It took me by surprise and really bit me. I loved the ending. Even though the ending is bittersweet what Brock did will always take my heart. It want to read a fantastic world full of werewolves, action, and being on the run, read this book! It's action-packed and has a love in it that makes your heart melt!
