it was amazing
bookshelves: arc-s

Werewolves! Teenage me starting dancing the moment I found out because those are and always will be one of my weaknesses in books - that and vampires because doh. In any case, the werewolves weren't overly present but they didn't have to be. I loved the way they were there and part of the plot without being all-important.

Speaking of plot.. There was a lot going on! Several sub-plots mixing with the general one to the point of me losing track of everything at some point. Although I have to say.. I quite liked that? It made things more unpredictable than they would've been otherwise. There was also a vague-ish love-triangle like thing going on but.. I still don't really get what that was all about. So of course that makes me overly curious and I need the sequel already, haha.

Definitely a shout-out to our main character, Ness, coming up for female rights. As the sole female werewolf in her pack-but-not-pack, she fights to officially join. Seeing how she puts that much effort in, while most male members are against it, is truly admirable. So, yup, a splurge of feminism right there!

There are only two small things I'd love to see differently. One is the more action-packed scenes feeling a bit all over the place at times. Although I can admit that might be me and my mom-brain, I do think you should be able to picture those scenes in your head without them not feeling right, you know?
The second one is how I didn't really like the main character, Ness. I connected with her at first, but at some point I lost that connection due to her somewhat losing her.. motivations for doing certain things? I don't know. Felt to me like she started making decisions based off of nothing which was weird. It's hard to explain, really..
