Lost in the foster care system, all 16-year-old Giselle Richards has ever wanted is someone to accept her for what she is, a werewolf.
In a world where supernatural creatures are not out and proud, little werewolf Giselle has never known love, acceptance, or what it means to belong to a pack. A child of the foster system, she’s been rejected by more families than she can count. But when a family of shifters offers to adopt her, Giselle discovers they’re involved in a brutal turf war dividing the paranormal factions in her city. Worse yet, the new pack fostering her might be guilty of starting the fight.
Joining a pack might just send Giselle six feet under instead of back into the foster system.
All she ever wanted was acceptance, but now that she’s learned the cost, she’ll have to decide if submitting to an Alpha, and finally finding her place within a pack is worth sacrificing her freedom or her life.
Giselle Richards is just trying to hold on till she turns 18 and can be done with the foster care system. She is tire of being shuffled from home to home. Everything always seems so perfect and hopeful until her foster parent’s figure out what she really is.
She has stopped dreaming of a family and just wants to survive till she is 18. She is done with hiding who she really is. When she is brought to the Hernandez Family’s home she refuses to get her hopes up. Everything seems so perfect , maybe too perfect.
The author is able to improve a world we all know and love. The world of things that go bump in the night and all beings paranormal. She is able to create so many characters but keep them unique at the same time, giving each of them their own voice.
Giselle is one feisty wolf with a huge chip on her shoulder which makes he super relatable, not that we all are werewolves who can’t control themselves…. However I feel like everyone at some point in life has felt like they did not belong. Like they weren’t good enough. That’s Giselle from page one and we read as she grows in to a young woman who not only ends a war but is able to allow herself joy and love.
I really enjoy the plot and its BIG twist (no I won’t ruin it for you!) The twist really sets the whole story in to a fast paced motion that you as the reader eat up and try to keep up with.
All in all I did enjoy the story minus the stubborn adolescent temper tantrums that will be found here and there in the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good paranormal YA with a sprinkle of romance and teen hormones!
