On Fire: A Teen Wolf Novel by Nancy Holder

Based on the hit MTV series Teen Wolf—a teenage boy’s life changes forever after he’s bitten by a werewolf.


In Beacon Hills, a mountain lion is blamed for a spate of vicious attacks; Scott McCall wishes the cause was that simple. Unfortunately, hiding his werewolf identity, especially from Allison Argent, while fighting his need to shift, is only one problem. Keeping his mysterious, murderous Alpha off his back (literally), avoiding hunters, deciphering strange dreams about flames and impending doom . . . is really eating into lacrosse practice and hang-out time. So when Jackson Whittemore doesn’t show for his date with Lydia, Scott hopes that helping Allison track down their buddy will be simpler. Derek—whose hunger for vengeance blinds him to the dangers that lie in wait—and Stiles are also looking, but the worried teens’ search is leading right to the preserve from Scott’s nightmare. They aren’t the only ones in the woods, and their little trip starts looking less like a rescue mission and more like an elaborate trap—one that will force them to make the choice between killing and being killed. . . .

For fans of this truly fantastic television series shown on MTV, this book (and hopefully a series of books) are a great addition! Not to mention the fact that Nancy Holder, one of the most amazing writers in fiction who is responsible for the bestselling Wicked series, is the author - which makes this story a whole lot of fun to read. For anyone who has not yet tuned in to the series (which you should as fast as possible), this is a story about a young man by the name of Scott McCall- a lacrosse player, a quiet sort with a best friend who is absolutely hysterical, and a boy who was bitten by a werewolf. This ‘Alpha’ who changed his life won’t give up on Scott, wanting to take him into the pack and make him one of them. But Scott is desperate to try and hold on to who he is and what he wants - including his teen love, Allison. Allison’s family are werewolf hunters. (Talk about picking the wrong girlfriend when you’re a wolf!) Derek is another Beta, like Scott, who is out for vengeance, and he wants nothing more than to track down this Alpha who has changed them both because he’s seeking revenge for his sister’s death. In this story we begin with Allison’s birthday. She and Scott decide to skip school to celebrate together and have been found out. In addition, a dead body has also been found. Yet another in a long line of vicious attacks in Beacon Hills that has been blamed on a mountain lion. (Even though Scott knows that the Alpha is the real killer). One evening Lydia (Allison’s best friend) tells Allison that her boyfriend Jackson has up and disappeared. She can’t reach him on the cell and no one seems to know where he went. Begging Allison for her help, she and Scott go on the hunt to look for Jackson. Scott is beyond scared that the star lacrosse player has met up with the same fate as the rest of the Alpha’s prey, but while searching, Allison and Scott not only find even more romance with one another, but as they hunt the woods for Jackson, they soon come across a truly beautiful silver wolf that basically just sits and stares at them before walking away. A picture of things to come? A new wolf in the forest ready to help…or, harm? Again this is a great plotline that is far different than the multitude of werewolf books and movies that have been tossed into reader’s laps over the past decade. In fact, the MTV show is extremely well-acted and well-written, so it is NO surprise that this book is a whole lot of fun, as well. Quill Says: It would be great to see Nancy Holder take charge and bring even more Teen Wolf novels to life!

As a fan of the show before reading this tie-in, I would definitely recommend it to other Teen Wolf fans. Holder includes many explanations from the show to not leave new readers out of the loop, but it's definitely more enjoyable with previous knowledge. The writing itself is very simple but don't let that scare you away from reading it. It's a good, quick read. The story revolves around Jackson disappearing to speak with some suspicious stranger and the search for him--it's not so much about werewolf action because, well, that's what the show was covering at the time this tale is set in. It's set in season 1 before the Alpha's identity is known and after the cougar scene at the school. Basically, Allison and Scott search for Jackson while Lydia, Danny, and Danny's boyfriend go to Jackson's house, and Derek and Stiles help Scott/chase after him. In the middle of the book Derek has an extended flashback about how he met Kate, including snippets of Scott and Stiles' lives on the side. The flashbacks are especially interesting for fans of the show because Derek actually opens up to the audience, and that's something season 1 Derek just doesn't do in the show. The flashbacks also include what happened the day of the Hale house fire. The characterizations are spot-on and the plot is exciting, plus Derek and Stiles pretty much spend every page interacting with each other after their introductions. So fans of those two, this book is good to you. The book also mentions other Alphas, so maybe it's alluding to what's soon to come in the show...Either way, this is a fun tie-in for fans and possibly newcomers!

I would say that the level of reading is around 8th to 9th grade. It's nice and short so the book is a quick read just for passing time. It has the potential to be read more than once in my own opinion. The friend I got it for has read it over a few times for fun.
