Mackenzie and Amy were best friends. Until Amy was brutally murdered.
Since then, Mac’s life has been turned upside down. She is being haunted by Amy in her dreams, and an extremist group called the Trackers has come to Mac’s hometown of Hemlock to hunt down Amy’s killer: A white werewolf.
Lupine syndrome—also known as the werewolf virus—is on the rise across the country. Many of the infected try to hide their symptoms, but bloodlust is not easy to control.
Wanting desperately to put an end to her nightmares, Mac decides to investigate Amy’s murder herself. She discovers secrets lurking in the shadows of Hemlock, secrets about Amy’s boyfriend, Jason, her good pal Kyle, and especially her late best friend. Mac is thrown into a maelstrom of violence and betrayal that puts her life at risk.
Kathleen Peacock’s thrilling novel is the first in the Hemlock trilogy, a spellbinding urban fantasy series filled with provocative questions about prejudice, trust, lies, and love.
I've read so many great books lately, I'm starting to run out of adjectives to describe them all. How often can you say, amazing, brilliant, and awesome in a review without starting to sound a bit repetitive. I'll tell you one thing, this is one instance where I don't mind being repetitive at all! I've read ALOT of really great books this year, and I really don't think that's a bad thing! :)
This book is one of those AMAZING books. Add it to the list with the rest of the awesome I've read this year. In fact, put it a little towards the top! This book kept me on my toes! The mystery surrounding the little town of Hemlock had me itching for answers and gasping at every turn! Literally! I honestly had to put the book down a few times just to take in the moments. The shock factor is definitely high with this read. Awesome. Very awesome!
People were gushing to me about this book for weeks before I finally decided to pick it up. Now I'm certainly glad I did. I'm not the biggest fan of werewolf books but this book might have made a new fan out of me. I thought the whole werewolf thing was actually quite clever! Did anyone else catch a bit of a political vibe? I loved it!
The mystery captivated me, the love triangle kicked in with that bit of spice, and the shock factor topped it all off as one amazing read. I'd recommend it to anyone! Bring on the sequel! I'm so ready! :)
