This is an enjoyable book and I do recommend it.

The story centres around the world's only female werewolf and her struggle between fitting in to the human world and accepting her werewolf nature.

Let's get the criticisms out of the way first. The writing itself is rather basic which makes it seem amateurish from the outset. But it's worthwhile to stick with it and see what the story has to offer. At times, I felt like I was being hand-fed the personalities of the characters and other details. The author should learn to let go a little and trust in the reader to pick-up on underlying meaning. Some of the dialogue felt less than natural, but this is one of the hardest things to get right in a book, even my favourite authors mess up dialogue.

Now on to why people should read the book.

The best thing about this story is the new and interesting take on werewolf society and how werewolves come to be. I thought it was an incredible basis for the story. The book grabbed my interest near the beginning and held it all the way through. The action came on quick, the story never lagged and it turned out to be a really nice read. This book just cries out to be made into a movie and I will certainly go see it.
