Claire is having her perfect sixteenth birthday party. Her pool party is amazing and the very cute Matthew keeps on flirting with her. But that night, her mom tells Claire that she is a werewolf. Claire is initiared into the pack of female werewolves and she must deal with her changing indenity. There is also a rogue werewolf that is attacking humans. Her relationship with Matthew is also threatening her new life. Mattehew's father is leading the hunt for the werewolves. Claire is now burdened with dark secrets and rubbing againist the boundaries of forbidden love. Claire is struggling with who she is and must make a choice that will change her life forever.
Claire is a likable character. She was hesiant who she was and what she wanted. I really enjoyed the relationship between Claire and her mom. I don't really find that many posistive relationship between parents and it was nice to see it. Mattehew also was a sweet character. I wish that some of the characters had been developed a bit more. I found this plot to be fun and full of originality. Werewolves were all born and not made, females can only be werewolves, and werewolves aren't a legend. Werewolves are a reality and known through out the world. The romance in the book is sweet. There is also a hint of humor in the book. Johnson is an amazing writer. She creates a fantastic debut that is full of originality and an addictive plot. I highly reccomend this book to Paranormal Romance lovers.


  1. This sounds really good Sarah. Maybe I will spot a copy at BEA!

  2. I disagree with you on the relationship between Claire and her Mom. There was no communication. Finding out oh so slowly that you're turning into a werewolf while you Mom is out traipsing around doing whatever it was she was doing is not an awesome relationship.

    I wasn't a fan. My review will post on the 18th.

  3. Great review! I love the originality of this book too,

  4. I enjoyed this book, and I also organized a non-book werewolf blog tour that other people who enjoyed the book might like to check out!
