Welcome to a new werewolf book I love!! :) Plus, witches are pretty awesome too. I loved it and I can't wait for book two :) This is the story of a girl, who is different, has something special, who is learning to not only believe in herself, but find out who she is and what she's willing to fight for. And there's cool characters amass in here! Like I have never liked all of the side characters in one book, but I do here.
So, Tessa is out lovely 17 year old girl, who is moving from LA to something Texas because she has a curse. She touches things and sees them. Like if I touched a door, it's a door, when she touches it, she sees things that have happened around that door, and people who have touched it before her. When she touches a person, she sees their memories, feels their emotions, hears their thoughts. Dude, this must suck LOL. She's really close with her family, both her parents are pretty awesome and her brother's pretty bad ass. But her brother's going to college, so her parents take her to Texas, where her mother's family, brujas, are from. Maybe they can help her a little. She seems ok for the first few days of school, until she has an incident with the wonderful Dastien. Oh boy. This is like that epic moment where your whole life just flashes, because everything changes the moment they touch. Tessa changes, literally, and it's gunna start a whole mess of things. She now has to go to St. Alibe's school for the "special" kids. If you aren't figuring it out yet, that means werewolves. She's learning. She's kinda dealing, and then there's the bad guys LOL
Ok, let's talk side characters first. She met Dastien, but she doesn't know him, not really. Other than a really strong need to be with him ALL THE TIME, she is clueless. She is learning to be a werewolf. Thank goodness for Merideth because she's her roommate, and new best friend. Tessa never had friends other than her brother because of her gift/curse. And with the werewolf thing happening her gift is changing. And she meets a few guys too who will become her good friends as well. She is surrounded by very tall, very hawt, seriously powerful werewolves, and she's intimidated. But that doesn't stop Tessa. When the vampires, yep the vampers are bad guys here :) show up to kill people, it's on. And her friends are in the thick of it with her. And Dastien, well, you'll be mad at him, but then you'll fall in love with him too. Just like I did :) And now the bad guys, because it's not just the vampers. There's some wolves who are working on the inside to destroy Tessa's new life and it's not gunna be pretty. This part was done extremely well. I loved the mystery, and I loved the outcome, which made me want more, and then made me cheer them on for days after I read it!
The writing is so excellent. I couldn't put this book down! Watching Tessa grow into friendships, with Dastien, Merideth, Chris, and even the "principle" or alpha of the school, it's amazing. She is learning so many new things. And the plot twists. Man, there's so many cool things about the start of this series! I can't wait for so much more! 5 AWESOME WOLFY PAWS!!!
