This is Jaidis Shaw's first novel, as well as the first in what promises to be an entertaining series. We have part love story and part coming of age, with mystery, suspense, and, of course, the parnormal aspects. All of this is woven together into an intriguing plot.

The writing flows well. I enjoyed the overall writing style, and found the book an easy and fun read.

I did have a few minor problems. For me, Alayna needs more development. She was a little too perfect, and accepted things too easily. She is suddenly immersed in a world of shapeshifters and vampires, yet questions very little about any of it. Also, I wanted more details. For instance, throughout the story I was curious how all these people managed to support themselves when none of them worked.

Despite the problem areas, I was compelled to continue reading. I like the world of Juniper Grove and all the characters living there. I'm looking forward to getting to know them better in the next book.
