Publisher's Summary

Bastian had to have been the most handsome man that Katherine had ever met. It really was unfortunate that he was also the most stubborn, controlling, downright infuriating jackass she'd ever known as well. Oh, and there was the fact that he was a werewolf - a werewolf who has bitten her.

Sixteen-year-old Katherine Mayes had never believed in mythological creatures like werewolves or mermaids - certainly not those sparkly vampires that her friend Abby was obsessed with. Even when she's bitten by a massive animal after a reckless night of teenage adventure and her body begins to change in mystifying ways, she can't force herself to believe in what she's convinced is impossible. Little does she realize, she's been infected with a disease a little more permanent than the rabies she feels fortunate to have not contracted - lycanthropy.

Her fierce denial is soundly shattered, however, when she is simultaneously saved and kidnapped by Bastian and his pack. Forced to leave small-town Iowa behind and adjust to their way of life in a hidden society, Katherine must also deal with fighting the pull she feels towards the man - or wolf, rather - who has bitten her and disrupted her life so completely.

    "I'm still a unsure about this book."

    The story line is interesting and the book is well written, but the characters are unremarkable and difficult to relate to. Worth a try, but probably not the right book for me.

    "Very Adolescent Story Line"

    The story line was probably interesting for middle school ages but it was predictable and very tame for adults. I found the overuse of adjectives very annoying and would no recommend it.

    "the girl needs to grow a backbone"

    Kathryn never opens her mouth to tell anyone off or the truth when they stop for food she worries what people would think if she said she was kidnapped by people who thought they were werewolves well just say I've been kidnapped stand up and open your mouth when your in trouble if she had she would have found out her parents were still alive and could have gone home and not put up with such a bully as the so called Alpha.

    "totally obsessed!"

    I can't stop listening! I love this series!!
    Good narration. A nice, calm soothing voice. I listened to this whole book at once. I just couldn't put it down.

    Story
    "I applaud the narrator"

    Ok maybe I have outgrown YA or maybe this is just poorly written. Third person writing is tricky and not well down here. Identifying character by hair color and size is ridiculous and annoying. Katherine is so immature and volatile in personality it because tedious. The girl can't see the forest through the trees and instead of coming off as a strong young lady she just seems stupid. Denial and revolt seems to be her only solutions so this is where I think that I outgrew YA because I just can't relate to this TSTL heroine. The whole pack and Bastien are not well developed and the secrets they keep to make this story a story are just silly. As a writer she needs to come up with a stronger storyline that doesn't make all your character unlikeable.

    "Illogical behavior"

    It is not often that I write reviews but I got so frustrated whilst listening to this book, that I had to take some time to rant, I mean explain my annoyance. There isn't much I can say without spoilers but I will try. The actions of the female protagonist was the most illogical, irrational, reckless behavior that I have had the displeasure of reading/listening about. Her actions made her come off as unintelligent and insipid. I am 40% through this book and I'm not sure if i can continue.

    Story
    "Young adult"

    Overall it ended up being rather boring. The narration made the characters seem extra young and the main character much more timid and weak than she would be if I was reading it without the audio. The male characters also come across as young guys that are trying to be more mature than they are.

    I think that I would have enjoyed the book more if I had read it instead. However the storyline was still rather weak and there was not a ton of character development. *spoiler* not to mention that they never tell her that her parents aren't actually dead...

    Story
    "Good Story Line - Bad Narration"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Maybe. The plot is there, but I'm having a hard time getting past the narrators tone to actually become absorbed into the story.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Noelle Marie? Why or why not?

    I don't think I would have actually changed the story. Maybe I would stop describing characters by their hair color so much and actually use their names. "The blond talked to the brunette...the red head laughed at the blond...etc" I didn't care for that so much.


    How could the performance have been better?

    At times, the narrator sounds just like the 'text to talk' feature off the computer. I also would have preferred her to use a lighter tone for the 16 year old main character instead of the deeper tone that she uses. She also falls into a pattern of speech that my ears get stuck on. I find myself listening to the way she is speaking, rather than listening to the story. I do like the supporting character voices most of the time. I just feel like some points of the story require more inflection. For instance, when Catherine is jogging and putting on music...her tone keeps the low, sometimes whispered, almost exasperated tone. When it should have been lighter and a bit more excitable.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Based off of the narration, I'm not sure that I was captured enough to want to see this in the theater. However, because the plot line seems like it would be better if either I read it myself or saw it on screen, I might rent the DVD.

    "Good and short. Perfect for a weekend read."

    Nice romance albeit following the usual contrast formula. Kept me well engaged. Very entertaining read.
