My review:

5/5 Stars

~I received a free copy for my honest review~

Very mysterious and action-packed, this was a great take on the classic werewolf tale! When Rose moves to a new town, things seem great with her being the center of attention but the spotlight isn’t always a good thing. She’s become the target of things supernatural and unsettling and must battle the demons within her own mind to find her way out.

I love the psychological aspect of this story as well as the thriller elements. I found the characters believable and the dialogue was great too. It gives a good look into the mind of teenagers going through a difficult time. Fantastic story!

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
