Tilly is a witch . . . at least, she thinks she is. All she really knows is that she has powers she shouldn't, and that the cruel women she escaped from—who definitely are witches—will stop at nothing to make her their prisoner again because of those powers.

But Tilly has fallen in with a strange group—a pack of werewolves. The pack wants to protect her; none of them more s

Loved it! I was a little surprised that I enjoyed it so much! I've read plenty of books about werewolves and/or witches, so it wasn't novelty that hooked me. I still feel like Lynch succeded in making something of her own here, but I can't quite put my finger on it...

When I find myself thinking about the characters while I'm working I know it's an intriguing book! I was drawn in from the first page and I haven't gotten out yet, although I've finished reading. The cliffhanger ending didn't help w

This book takes off at a run and doesn’t let up until the final page is turned. The author has created an intriguing story that is filled with complex characters that drive the story. The imagery and emotions the characters feel jump of the page - I felt I was a part of the story. I look forward to reading what happens next.

Tilly has never had a moment to herself. Ever since the witches sunk their claws into her, she's had to their bidding. Deep inside, she detests the fact that they've made her do such wretched things. Darkness and light war within her, often forcing her to choose sides. She wants nothing to do with the darkness and does everything possible to ignore it. That's easier said than done, though. When the opportunity for freedom presents itself, she dives head-first into getting as far away as possible ...more

Wow !! this book really pulled me in and wrapped me in its spell.
I absolutely loved it !! It was full of drama telling the story of Tilly, a witch running from the cruelty of her so called family who is found by Spencer who isn't what he seems. They both have a pretty big secret each which leads to a lot of drama, and the fact that his half brother, Dominic also wants to be more than friends with TIlly doesn't tame Spencers beast. They both want her and she loves t

From reading the summary, I thought that the book would be good. I wasn’t expecting it to be great!! I was hooked by the first chapter and I couldn’t let it go until I was done with it!!
It was so well written, that I was keeping congratulating the author silently, and I was anxious the whole time. One of the other great things was that it wasn’t tiring, something I find very important in a book.
Congratulations to this new author, and I hope I read her next books, as well as oth

Run is the first in a very different kind of supernatural world, where witches and werewolves exist and demons can come to the human realm to run rampant. I liked what the author created, where there was all kinds of magical potential, both light and dark, motivated by intentions. I am always a sucker for werewolf dynamics and this was a pack full of unrest and strong personalities, about to explode with conflict. 

I struggled getting into the story, not really certain what was going on and if I

I received Run as a free copy from the author/publisher. The gifting did not determine the review/rating, which reflects my honest opinion.

I was reading a pdf copy which constantly changed fonts (to discourage piracy, I suppose)-- this made the reading difficult and I distracted from potential grammar and punctuation issues; for this reason, I recommend reading the Look Inside feature at Amazon, to scan the first chapters and determine readability for yourself.

Tilly finally escapes her captors and runs for freedom. The forest, usually her friend, seems alien and full of dark surprises but just as she thinks she’ll succumb to the darkness she is rescued. Three handsome brothers are among her saviours and it doesn’t take her long to lose her heart but with a past that is hell-bent on catching up with her can she afford to stay and risk her friends’ lives?
This paranormal story is a little different, and it offers a new perspective on the young adult and

Wow! This one had me hooked till the very end! I loved how fast paced this story was and so full of different twists and turns.
The characters were entertaining to read and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
The only thing I didn’t care for was the relationships the main character had I didn’t like the “love triangle” aspect.
I’m definitely interested to see where this story goes with the cliff hanger ending.

Saved by one of the pack members, she awakens bandaged and disoriented. After getting to know the pack, she knows that the evil witches are going try to get her back by any means necessary.

I really enjoyed this book. I was actually getting annoyed with how the main female character was treating the two male leads at times. But for me that just shows how well the writing and story is because I was getting so involved in the story, it almost felt like I was there. It's also an interesting twist to the end of this one. I can't wait to read book two! ...more

A must read.

New to this author but absolutely loved this book. Love and betrayal are just some of the emotions portrayed in this story. If you love wolves and witches then this is the book for you. This story flows so easily that you are finished without realizing you couldn't put it down. Excited for the next one.

Poor Tilly runs away from the 3 witches that adopted her as a small child. They use her and abuse her so she runs off, right into a werewolf camp. There, she meets Spencer who is the black sheep of the family for a few different reasons.
I love storyline, suspense, interaction between characters, and drama. Can't wait to read the next book.

This is a really interesting take on werewolves. There is a strong Romeo and Juliet aspect going on here. It is entertaining and moves at a good pace. The emotions from the MC felt genuine based on her back story. The editing leaves a little to be desired. Some missing words, wrong words, or grammar issues. Not enough to be completely distracting. I would be interested in continuing this series.

Lots of action and adventure in this well written story. This is the first of a trilogy and does have a cliffhanger. Lots of teen angst happening throughout.

::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::

The author kindly provided me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I have given it 3.5 stars.

This is a very good young adult romance, which features lots of paranormal action you don't want to miss!

It's action packed and thrilling from the very beginning, pulling you in to thick of the action from the very first word.

Run is very promising start to a series that holds so much potential, I can't wait to read the next installment.

Running through the woods one night, Tilly takes a nose dive and ends up in a werewolf camp. She had been running for her life from the women who had adopted her when she was a young child. They were witches and they were very cruel to her, making her raise demons and basically torturing her when she didn't do as told. That had been her life for years until she escaped and then was rescued by Spencer, the black sheep of the werewolf camp. He was the son of the alpha, but his mother had run off

This book drags you in from the very first pages, with main character Tilly running from something, or someone, although we aren't sure exactly what, or who, it is until much later in the story.

I love stories with supernatural creatures, and this one was no exception. We not only have witches, but also werewolves. Tilly finds herself involved with a group of people who have a secret, one they don't want getting out for fear of retaliation. But Tilly also has a secret, one which she isn't willing

It took me a while to decide if I want to give this book three or four stars. But then it's me having issues with the heroine and not with the story so I decided for a very well written, captivating and compelling story, with very complex characters and unexpected twists, a background that played in my head like a movie and decidedly bad villains (I always enjoy those). Even though I could have strangled Tilly at least twice for her extreme dumbness and cruelty that I can't excuse with her age a ...more

What an enchanting read! I was completely caught up in the chase from the very beginning of this awesome book! The writing was very descriptive, the storyline was intriguing and the characters were very complex. I loved being entrenched in the underworld of shifters and witches! There were a few times I just wanted to slap Tilly on the back of her teenage head, but she was still a loveable character. The twists and turns in this story took me for a pleasant roller coaster ride that I thoroughly ...more

Welcome to Tilly's world the only problem is she was adopted by a claim of evil witches that abused her from day one. Once she became of age she ran away only to find herself in a world of magic and shape-shifters. There she met Spencer, he can relate to her because he is not excepted by his pack. He is drawn to her, but the only problem is he is not the only one and the biggest threat of all is that they do not know what Tilly's is and that can destroy the whole pack. This is

What an amazing read!
I was drawn into the world that H.G. Lynch created in Run from the start, I did not want to put it down, it left me wondering what could possibly happen next, there was so many secrets & plenty of drama, I loved it, I have to admit, that I even ugly cried once or twice . Her characters Tilly, a witch on the run from the people who adopted her (nicest thing I can say about them) Spencer & Dominic werewolves are beautifully written, it was such an amazing enjoyable read.
