This is a good werewolf book. It takes the usual werewolf book and puts an interesting spin on the genre and makes it the uniquely this authors book. It is like a couple books beautifully brought together into one fascinating story. This is worth reading. If you love paranormals you will love this one. I am looking forward to seeing where this series goes.
I give this one 4 -1/2 red roses
