As the official head of the Academy, she needs to keep a cool head even while dealing with her own inner emotional turmoil that threatens to destroy her as the body count builds up. Meanwhile, Darby is dealing with the betrayal of Jedda, her true love, and Wyatt goes into denial about his and Dev’s chances of surviving this war, and his mother, Sam, continues her obsession with Continue reading
“Hi. My name is Grazi Kelly. There are things I know are true and things that I never would have guessed. First, demons and witches exist and they are evil. Second, the world is up for grabs and the witches are getting their minions ready. Third, I’m a werewolf and it’s my job to stop them.”
High school sophomore Grazi Kelly leads an ordinary life in the suburbs of New Jersey helping her grandmother with chores and attending Catholic school. Things are pretty good except for her bullying cousin and the rest of the obnoxious cheer team. Then things take a frightening turn when the night of the full moon arrives and the bodies start piling up. Grazi learns that she is different in ways she never expected. She finds herself torn between Sebastian, the school soccer star and Ronan, a foreign exchange student who shares her secret. She must uncover the identity behind the mysterious attacker, but is she ready for the entire truth?
This book was perfect until Ronan showed up. I liked the pace and the plot. Grazi was funny and relatable and I liked Angela a lot as well. It’s also a pretty cool idea that these werewolves are protecting the church instead of being hunted by them, and as far as I know that’s also very original However, I had some problems with Ronan. He’s usually not a bad character. In fact, I’m glad they introduced another teenage werewolf and not just because it creates a love triangle. He’s also someone that Grazi can fully relate to and turn to.
But Ronan’s weird.
His character can be inconsistent. A lot of the time he acts and talks like a normal teenage boy. But there are times when he’s completely formal, as if he belongs to another century, and that’s never really addressed. It annoyed me. Grazi can also be annoying when she’s around him, like when she blamed herself for things that happened before she was born and had to apologize to Ronan because she made Ronan tell her. She deserved to know since it was her past and she shouldn’t feel sorry that she asked him about it, nor should she have a huge inner monologue about how she’s a terrible person. This is one of the few instances where Ronan has more common sense than Grazi and he’s as perplexed as I was about why she had to apologize. So I’m definitely rooting for Sebby in this book.
Any fans of Twilight and teenage supernatural romance in general will love this great story.
