Review by Amber I.
Surviving agitated ghosts, irritated witches, angry werewolves, and the horrors of high school has never been so hard.
The night of Samhain may be behind them, but Yuki and her friends have only begun to face the challenges of their paranormal gifts. Tensions are rising--in the pack, at school, and within their tightly knit group of friends.
The tragic death of Wakefield High student Dylan Jacobs has emotions boiling over. The J-Team, Yuki's arch nemesis, have turned the entire football team against her. They claim that Yuki is a witch and blame her for the death of their fellow teammate. Will Yuki be able to solve the mystery of Dylan's death, and the legend of Witchtrot Road, before tempers flare and things turn violent?
Emma is the friend that Yuki turns to when things get tough, but she's been behaving strangely. Emma has been acting distant and seems to be coming down with a mysterious illness. What will Yuki and her friends do if their healer is truly sick?
Calvin has become Alpha and wants the best for his pack. He is a dedicated and compassionate leader willing to do anything for the good of his people, but will Cal be able to hold the pack together when a fiery, young werewolf comes seeking revenge?
Simon may still be a roguish playboy, but he is taking his role as Calvin's second in command deadly serious. Will Simon be able to focus on his pack duties when he is forced to face his dark, emotional past?
This was a fast and easy read. I was immediately intrigued and glued to the pages. Yuki's ability seems to be getting stronger. Cal is really fitting into his alpha role. And life for them is never ever simple. We are immediately thrown in to a story that leaves you dying to find out whats going to happen next.
The biggest thing for me was watching Simon and Emma. Oh yes there has to be something way more going on then we see. I wish I could get inside one of their heads for a while. Definitely something there to uncover.
The whole book has this ghostly like theme, and made me think the actions of the last book were lurking in the shadows. But the ending wasn't at all like I thought. I felt a bit disappointed. It was something so un-paranormal and wrapped up to easily. I really really liked the beginning but like I said the ending just disappointed me. We are waiting for this big mystery to reveal itself and when it does it just didn't feel right. I do not want to give anything away but I was expecting something more paranormal and not an easy fix solution. And the actions of the individuals involved in the problem just felt way too far fetched.
Even though the ending wasn't for me, I still can not wait to read the next book. A girl who can smell the dead, her alpha werewolf boyfriend, her amazing vegan loving bff and another sexy wolf, make up one very awesome and interesting group of characters to read about.
