First, as I was writing this review, I said, what the heck? Why not four stars? Though this book wasn’t anything new, it was well written, I genuinely liked all of the characters, and the plot held my interest the entire way though. Second, I’m going to dive right into a spoiler (view spoiler) This may be a drawback for some readers, but I still enjoyed the story despite how awesomely smart I am ::grinning hard::.

Enough about my smarts, I don’t have anything bad to say about the actual story. I will say that the summary is kind of misleading. At any rate, the writing was perfect for this story. The pace was great and once I started reading, I couldn’t stop. I liked the setting and that the author created a society in which the existence of werewolves isn't a secret to the general public. I also appreciate that these werewolves aren’t a total cliché. The characters are well developed, even the secondary characters. I loved the relationship between the four friends. Yes, even the dead one. I think it’s great that even though Amy is already gone when the book starts, we do get to know a bit about her over the course of the story.

I also really liked Tess and hope to see more of her in the next book. This may be crazy, but (view spoiler)

There was a triangle in this book. Well, it was more like a quad plus one that turns into a triangle. That doesn’t make any sense you say? Well, read the book! I really liked the romance angle though. It was realistic, slow, and sweet. (view spoiler) The ending was both sweet and sad. All in all, this was a fun read to pass the time with. I can also honestly say that I am really looking forward to finding out what happens with ALL of the characters next. Can't wait for the next book!
