I had mixed feelings on this story. First werewolves are brought in the story in the beginning and then they aren’t talked about anymore like being a werewolf or the creature itself was no longer important to this story and I didn’t understand that. I found this to be a slow read for the ,most part but the ending was really good. I’m not sure I really liked Lycaea’s character which made this harder for me to read but I did love Lowell’s character if i didn’t I never would have read the whole book and would have missed the ending. This did have a good plot just seemed to fall a little short for mr. i did like the ins and outs of the story.
