really liked it
bookshelves: wolves-tigers-shifters, ya
Read from August 11 to 12, 2012

I really enjoyed this. This was a different spin on the werewolf stories out there. The story pulls you right it and moved along at a fast pace. The writing was really good, the descriptions were just right; enough to get a feel for the world Ms. Hildenbrand created without going overboard. And it definitely left me wanting more and I am off to read book 2 next.

a few negatives for me: some of the secondary characters seemed a bit cliche and underdeveloped, hopefully that will change in the next books. I wasn't crazy about a few of the twilight similarities, and I think SPOILER ALERT:the I love you's were exchanged too early on.

I have to say that I absolutely loved Tara. I think I was mentally high fiving her throughout the story. She was a kick ass heroine who did not need a hero to save her, and I love how even though she was madly in love with Wes and despite his 'dreaminess,' she still would not put up with his mood swings and over-protectiveness. I loved Wes too. He was a great hero, far from perfect, actually, he frustrated me to no end and I was glad Tara stood her ground. But I liked that he wasn't perfect and that I felt frustrated at him right along with Tara. Can't wait to see how things evolve with them.

Looking forward to the next one.
