I'm glad to get out of my book slump with this book! (Sorry for the lame review. I'm very lazy these days.) There are lots of things that changed throughout the book. The P.O.V changes through the stories. I like this because it shows both Alessia and Bree's points of view. In the first book, I thought Bree was a b*tch. But in the second book, her P.O.V convinced me otherwise.

This is the first I've read in the series and I have to hand it to Maggi for making it so easy to catch up. At first I was really confused by the terms and who was who, but Maggi writes in a way that you can quickly and easily understand the world through context clues. I found the characters interesting and the plot intriguing.

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

I rec'd an ARC...had been looking forward to book 2 for awhile now. Once again, I tend to be vague for fear of spoilers.

But Nicole does a great job of upping the stakes, adding to the suspense, and once again leaves the reader wanting more. Bree has a lot more depth and has become a favorite character. There's are lots of "OMG" moments! And at the end you are left pining for book 3!!! The story is intriguing and continues to suck you in.

Can't wait for book 3 and for my official copy to arrive!!!

Nicole Maggi's IN THE MOUTH OF THE WOLF, book two in the TWIN WILLOWS TRILOGY, is a gripping sequel filled with action, magic and master storytelling.

I applaud Maggi's decision to split the narration between Alessia and Bree. Gaining insight into each teen's perspective pulled me further into the supernatural world of the Benandanti. In book two, we're introduced to Nerina and Heath's forbidden romance, which I find to be every bit as romantic as Alessia and Jonah's.

Book three can't release soo

I'm just going to say that I love books that can improve upon the first in the series. It's just so rare. And this book did that. It was perfect

A lot of amazing things happened in this book, some of which I did not see coming. The magic got raised, and so did the stakes, and we got Bree Wolfe's POV in this book too! I absolutely loved it, because Maggi separated the characters so well. This series is a must read.

Very interesting. Annoyed a bit by the cliffhanger. So now I really want to read the third book. Very suspensful.

This one was way better. I have had this ARC for awhile and finally got to reading it. Can't wait to read The Blue Woods

The Story-
The Benandanti (good shape shifters) now have control of the waterfall, but the Malandanti won't give up. They've brought in a mage to fight their battles. Desperate to keep the magic of the waterfall safe, and somehow bring Jonah to the right side, Alessia enlists Bree to spy on The Guild. Together they uncover secrets long lost to the Benandanti and some terrible truths about how far their enemy is willing to go to control the world.

Bree soon finds out that even though she is not a

Nicole Maggi’s writing style has definitely improved compared to the first book. The narration is a lot wittier, descriptive, and concise. However, In the Mouth of the Wolf was just an averagely well-written YA book for me.

There are a lot of action scenes, and the stakes are higher. The beginning was compelling, with new characters and more problems. As I got to the middle, however, I became bored. It’s not that the w

I was so excited to get this book, In The Mouth of the Wolf by Nicole Maggi, but it took me awhile to find the time to read it. I had loved the first book in the Twin Willows series and so I had high expectations for this one. And I was not disappointed, the action picked right back up where it left off. In the second book in the series one of the Concilio comes to Twin Willows to help defend the Water Fall. But the Maladanti aren’t going to give up so easily, they have brought in a mage.

Excellent, as good or little better than book 1. My favourite character is Bree, she's brash, opinionated and outspoken, just❤️❤️her. Onto book #3.

Nicole was born in the suburban farm country of upstate New York, and began writing at a very early age. Of course, her early works consisted mainly of poems about rainbows and unicorns, although one of them was good enough to win honorable mention in a national poetry contest! (Perhaps one of the judges was a ten-year-old girl.) Throughout high school, her creative writing was always nurtured and ...more
