Amber I has been on me for so long to read this book and I've finally decided to pick it up. I really have no idea why these things take me so long sometimes.

Jessica has been living under an alias for 7 years and her life has been pretty normal. Besides the fact that she's literally the only female born to a werewolf ever. She has never turned into a werewolf herself, nor or there any signs until one day she changes out of the blue. Luckily her father has planned for such a thing but Jessica isn't able to reach the medication in time. So as the first female werewolf that has ever existed things are not easy. Not too mention that since a female werewolf is virtually unheard of everyone is gunning to control Jessica. And some people have been wanting her dead since she was born.

Not only is she the first female were ever. She also has some freaky talents that no one else have had in centuries. It seems that she's Lycan, she has the capability of stopping her shift half way through and keeps full control over her wolf. Her eyes are violet like her fathers, who is alpha, instead of amber like every other male were. And she also can't be controlled by her father either. Luckily her dad is 100% on her side and some of these abnormalities are being hidden from the rest of the pack. So because everyone is either trying to kill Jessica or kidnap her for their own uses, they try to hide her away. Unfortunately mercenary Rourke is not letting her hide away alone and they're both going to get more than they bargained for.

I thought the beginning of this book was a bit slow to start out. Although things were happening quickly, there wasn't a lot of explanation mainly because no one knows anything. Jessica being the only female were is something that everyone is on the edge about. I really ended up loving this book. Some things get explained but there is so much that's left up in the air, you really just have no idea how this series is going to go. And we're left on such a crazy cliffhanger, it makes you want to pick the next book immediately.

Amber I reviewed this book awhile ago and if you want to check out her review you can do so here.


  1. I am also not really attracted to this series, though everyone who reads it, loves it. I think it is the cover. But I am glad you enjoyed it Amber.

    1. The cover is pretty cheesy actually. I don't usually pay too much attention to them unless they're amazing.

  2. Glad you finally listened to Amber I and read this one! I hope it doesn't take you as long to read the 2nd installment. :p

    1. It definitely won't, I really loved this book. And with that cliffhanger? I won't be waiting to find out what happens next.

    2. IMO this is the best one in the series.

  3. Replies
    1. I think this is the first time I've disagreed with you. Although I'm a fan of James, he was hot. They set it up so that we once not to get attached to him. I am a fan of Rourke.

  4. Got this one on the wishlist already so its just a matter of time. Glad you liked it.

  5. I read this a while back because everyone was raving about it. Sadly I just think the whole book left something to be desired and it didn't work for me because of that. Plus I didn't really like some certain things that happened in the book, like sleeping with someone who was basically her uncle... gross.

    I'm glad you liked this book though. Thanks for the great review!
