The rest of the werewolf pack might consider Aric Connor to be omniscient and destined to save the world when evil returns to claim it. But for the most part, 15-year-old Aric ignores the confirmations of his powers, taking everything in stride until he meets her.  Celia Wird wasn't supposed to awaken naked in the mountains of Colorado, not when she was just stalking her prey in a filthy alley several states away. She especially wasn't supposed to meet Aric, the handsome werewolf who comes to her aid.

I loved this book! It was interesting to learn how Gemini has two wolves and fun to see that Liam was ALWAYS Liam with no filter whatsoever. I also adored getting to see Aric's dad and how close a family they were.

It shows that Aric and Celia were always meant to be which I've always believed. I didn't expect the little twist in the last chapter before the epilogue but in retrospect it makes sense for the series! I also loved the foreshadowing of future matches between Aric's friends and Celia's sisters!

Can't wait for more in the weird girls series!
