Some might think that it's kind of weird, that a girl fells in love with a wolf. Or that at least was my first thought when starting the book. Luckily, it wasn't really weird, but a captivating and intriguing story.
First of all, I apparently have some problem with two narrators. It's annoying, that my first reaction is always "Oh no, not again, this can't be good!", especially when I'm proven wrong! The story was fluent and beautifully written.
The main characters are Sam and Grace, who are interesting characters, though Sam is kind of.. teddy bear. He could grow a pair, for my opinion. Though it wasn't that annoying, just something I noticed. And Grace is just so serious and solid and down-to-earth that she could easily be boring. Luckily, we didn't cross that line. But then again, if you have that kind of parents, maybe you have to grow up when you're just a kid. And her father just forgot her in the car when she was a kid, just.. perfect parents.
I actually liked Isabel after a while (though I still can't picture her blond, never). And I liked Olivia in the beginning, but then I just.. didn't like her anymore. And man, I just hate Shelby! Oh dear. One of my least favorite characters since.. can't even remember when! And Jack wasn't really nice guy, but his end was still quite brutal.
And the last page of the book.. After I read it, I was screaming "OMGOMGOMG!!! GET ME LINGER, STAT!" So yeah, quite a cliffhanger there, I must say.
Overall, will be buying this book! And the two others too, of course.

I had to borrow the Finnish copy, since all the English copies were already borrowed. And that was just quite a sad thing. Translator decided to use the language used in our ordinary life, things like referring to person with "it". Translator also use the southern slang, which just sounds trashy. Yeah, I speak the nothern slang, since I've lived here my whole life, but even if there was my slang used, it would sound trashy. It just doesn't fit. And it really doesn't help that the translator starts with southern slang, changes to "book language" and occasionally steps to the slang side again. Just come on, try to decide already!
But the book was great, I actually liked it more than the first part. Though, this time I was terrified ("OMG, four narrators, this must be BAD!"), but it really wasn't.
The whole book was like some kind of dying story, how you just watch someone dying, but you're too terrified to talk about it, so you just try to ignore it. I didn't expect myself to be fascinated by some "dying story", but apparently I like something like that. Weird.
We also meet a new character, Cole, who is a rockstar and a d*ck. But of course I fell in love with him the minute I saw him. And turns out, he's a mad scientist! Who knew, right? And I'm really starting to like Isabel, I mean really. And really hating her father, I mean really. Obnoxious man, who I hate as much as I hate Shelby. If both of them were gone/dead/pick your favorite, everyone would have much easier life! They only would have to worry about turning into wolf and almost-dying.
In this book, Grace was quite phlegmatic. But then again, she's basically dying, so let's give her a break. Sam is again quite lovesick puppy, I think, can't really remember, 'cause I'm only thinking about Cole. Ha. <3

*May contain some spoilers* I didn't have a clue, what kind of book this would be, when I borrowed it from my library. I just checked the frontcover and thought that it looked nice and simple, black with one white feather flowing. Though I was scared, that since it has 553 pages, I would never actually read the book. Luckily, this isn't what happened.
As I said in my earlier post, I was reading Finnish edition, and had to start this book twice. First time I only read first 16 pages, and was exhausted. I thought that this book isn't for me, that it's just way too slow. The second time I jumped to where I left first time, and it took only two more pages to turn _really_ interesting. After that I couldn't stop reading. Seriously. The story really took me over. It's truly wonderfull to find this kind of book, these are rare and just.. worth reading.
The main character is a girl named Rebecca. Occasionally she's a little silly and/or childish, but that doesn't really bother me, which is nice for a change. Usually I'm just rolling my eyes and thinking "man, aren't you a silly one..". I could just feel her pain, when she was apart from Lucian. Only thing, I didn't like so much, was the ending. It was really really short, only few pages, and I could've just kept reading. But then again, if I love a book, I don't want it to end ever. Because I feel like I'm losing a friend when the story ends. I'm also a sucker for happy endings, so I did actually cry in the end, when Lucian wasn't human anymore. I need that Cinderella-ending "and they lived happily ever after".
Overall, I need to buy a copy for myself. I need this book to my bookshelf. My bookshelf isn't perfect without this book.
