Just your average boy-meets-girl, boy-kills-people story.
The Native American Navajo tribe has stories of a monster so wicked, so blood-thirsty, that they are to be hunted down and slaughtered. But are they just legends? Or is something sinister lurking in the shadows? The Yee Naaldlooshi—skinwalkers—have the ability to transform themselves. And they can be anyone. Anything.
The Hunters—a group dedicated to tracking the creatures—are hot on their trail and they won’t stop until every last one is dead. But are they all as evil as foretold? Seb, alpha of the Taylor, Arizona reservation pack, begins to question the acts of their kind. But he’s broken a rule and must choose between killing the girl he loves or risking everything to save her. Cassie must fight for her survival. The pack is after her. And they’re no joke. Cass is about to find out how sadistic they can be.

I love it
First, let me say that I loved the cover for this book. It was a great representation of what the book would be about. Today, the cover can lure you in and drop you down a rabbit's hole. The author has a simple writing style that was easy to follow. I felt the characters in general were developed well. The main character, While I loved the main love interest, Seb, I found myself pulled from the story itself on many occasions. I think at times the pacing threw me off – either the story moved to fast and didn’t give me time to catch up with what was going on or exist in the moment with the character or there were scenes that lead to nowhere. There were scenes that did nothing to advance the plot and actually proved to frustrate me a little. The love story is nice – though. And Seb is a sweetheart. So the big question is, would I recommend this book? I would. Just because it wasn’t my favorite book, I could see how others might like it. And I might just pick up the sequel myself because I’m all kinds of nosy and I want to know what happens.
Seb and Cass felt the pull the minute they met, but what will happen when his pack and her father find out? This story makes you feel like you are part of the action almost. I really enjoyed it. This book will pull the young reader in right from the beginning. It's full of mystery, suspense and love. For me being an "older" woman, I actually really enjoyed this read and will be waiting for more
This is a new to me author. In this story we have a young guy named Seb who is a shifter. The tribe he is from has many varied shifters from Puma's to Wolves and more. Although called skinwalkers as they are a navajo tribe. There are hunters who do not want these beasts within their towns and homelands. Cassie is a human who has been raised by her dad after the death of her mom. She has a pull towards Seb and she is not sure why. Although they know they should not be friends or anything else. These 2 young people are drawn to each other. But when humans start to go missing of course its the tribe of shifters who are taking the fall or are they? Seb is Alpha of his pack but that will not stop them from wanting to kill Cassie. Can he save her from his own kind? Why is Cassie's dad in on this? And just who is Marcus really? The story was well written, very detailed, we have action as well as heart. Really good book for young adults or even us older adults. The book does leave us with a big cliffhanger so I can't wait already for the next one. I was gifted a copy of this book for my honest review
