Hello everyone! Today I have a little something special for you! I owed a review for this one 🙂 I have been behind on reviews and this one is too good not to show you!! The original post for this book is HERE!
Genre: Urban Fantasy
When a scientist runs an experiment on three separate college campuses that goes horribly wrong, several hundred students find their lives altered forever. They must learn to adapt to their new lives as Werewolves. Immediately after the incident a government program was put in place to keep track of these unwitting subjects. After a year the program falls apart as those in charge argue on how to proceed.
Without the programmers constantly looking over their shoulders the werewolves have now started to organize themselves. Creating their own hierarchy and alliances.
Jack is the Alpha of Pacific Northwest University’s pack F. He thought the government had finally taken a step back and let him and the other Alphas run their packs. Recently, however, he has been hearing rumblings about the programmers wanting to reinstate the program. He thought they were just rumors until he finds out one of his pack is being threatened by several of the lab assistants that took part in the original experiment. Now Jack must scramble to find allies and hunt down those threatening his pack. The more he goes looking the bigger the plot becomes.
I love werwolves, you all know this, but this one takes the cake. Because this one is a scientific experiment gone wrong, or right, which turned college kids into werewolves and made them a living Petri dish. Woah right!! Each pack has a letter instead of a name. And then other packs are trying to threaten certain members into joining their pack. And not everyone makes it out alive, and it’s a struggle to learn how to live.
Lyra is one of our main characters and she’s a strong female. I like her, though sometimes she’s a little too jump the gun on her decisions she’s a good kid. I get to say kid because they were all college kids. Plus Lyra is unique in some of her abilities. So the scientists want her, other packs want her, and she’s not willing to have her friends hurt on her account.
There’s a lot of other characters in here but it my get confusing if I just start sprouting names so I will just say that I have many favorites and many I want to die 🙂 they made so much of the story to be wonderful.
The writing is excellent! I love the way it was done. I also loved that there were plot twists you didn’t see coming and a wonderful discovery of the werewolves and how they are coping and discovering things. I really hope this evolves into a series or has more added to it! I want more!!! 5 WOLFY PAWS!!!
