it was amazing
Read from September 19 to 23, 2012

Life is complicated for teenage protagonist Connor Lewis. A socially awkward geek who flees from New York to attend boarding school in Paris, he’s also, oh yeah, at the centre of the political machinations of a society of werewolves. The Night Has Teeth, the debut novel from writer Kat Kruger and Fierce Ink Press, is a gripping journey into paranormal YA fiction, a genre that, I must admit, I haven’t visited since I was actually in that age range. I’m pleased to say, though, that this is a far cry from the days of Fear Street, also surpassing contemporaries in the field (Twilight, anyone? No? Good). This is something much more ambitious and fun.

The book takes you on a thrilling ride through modern-day Paris, as Connor tries—and fails—to live his life as a normal teenager. His mysterious host, the tattoo artist Amara, and her handsome, brooding boyfriend, Arden, are equal parts distant and compelling. They’re his introduction to Parisian society, a world much more complicated than he originally thought. The characters that inhabit this world are complex, engaging, and the reader is always left wondering what hidden information is going to come to light.
