From the title and the blurb, it’s pretty obvious what we’re dealing with here: werewolves. Whilst I sometimes appreciate knowing what type of supernatural creatures the book will be about, I think I’d prefer not to know for this book. The beginning of the book could hold the promise of the mystery but as we’re already told what it’s going to be… well, it kind of ruined the mystery.
The most enjoyable parts of the book were the descriptions of running (Romy jogs) and the hunts. I, myself, aren’t a jogger but reading these descriptions made jogging / running to be such a pleasure that I’m almost (almost) tempted to go for a run. The battle scene was also pretty awesome though the ending was slightly lacklustre.
Romy himself was okay but not the brightest character (I’m not referring to his intelligence, just that he’s pretty average). I much prefer Dimitri and Nat – Romy’s friends, with interesting backgrounds and they definitely helped the mood in the book.
The plot may not be unpredictable but I did enjoy this world and it was a very easy read. There appears to be signs (from the ending of the book & the ending of the battle) of a sequel of sorts but I don’t even know if it’s supposed to be a series. I would be very interested in the sequel *keeping my fingers crossed*.
