Editorial Reviews

Review

"Under My Skin is a roller-coaster romp through a supernatural world filled with scary beasties, otherworldly magic, and characters you'll root for...a compelling story full of mystery, magic, action and romance. A fun and engaging read."
~Rosemary Clement-Moore, author of Prom Dates from Hell


"Eryn emerges as a strong, independent, feisty young woman whose sense of responsibility for her "pack" .... fans of paranormal YA fiction will appreciate a protagonist with attitude and anticipate the next volume in the planned trilogy, Second Skin, to be released in 2011."
CM Magazine


"I love stories that are filled with paranormal beasties, great characters (especially kick-butt heroines), resident hotties, and humor! I couldn't decide whether I was Team Alec or Team Wade even up to the end."
~ Aly from The Young Adult Literature Review

Under My Skin is one of those books, that you sit down thinking you'll read a few pages of it and then a few hours later you're done. I found myself wanting to read more of Judith's mythology and world building. By the time I finished reading the book, I wanted to read more.

The first half of Under My Skin was a little slow for me, but this was due to the building up of the mythology and introducing the reader to the characters and the world in which Judith has created. Being the first in a 3 book series, there needed to be the world building and I think Judith did a good job with it. Had there been a lot of the action that comes later in the book, I think it would have distracted from the mythology and getting to know the characters and what Eyrn is and why she's in Redgrave. I loved the setting of Redgrave.

Eyrn is a very snarky, stubborn character who isn't afraid to fight her worst nightmares in the form of werewolves. That's not all that's hidden within Redgrave's small population. Witches, Vampires and more are introduced as we get to know some stand out characters. Be rest a assured there is some great tension in two hot, bad boys that Eryn is torn between.

There's the dark, brooding Alec, who she has an immediate chemistry with, but there's something about him that she has yet to figure out. I loved her first meeting of him, when she's running in the woods, and he's running with "pet" wolf. Then there's Wade, who she can't help but be drawn to, especially after her dream about him.

Eryn will soon find herself torn between Wade and Alec, and the dark secrets that are unraveling around her in Redgrave. As tensions build between Alec and Wade, who are both trying to help Eryn, she will find herself facing the toughest choice of all. Letting her true nature be revealed.

I liked Under My Skin and I'm looking forward to reading the second book in the series.

Eryn isn't like other girls. After all, that's what got her sentenced to living in Redgrave. She is a part-wolven, part-human girl banished to the small town in an attempt to destroy the magic that runs in her veins.

But when she discovers that she isn't the only magical being around, everything changes. Suddenly, she is the newest member of Redgrave's own paranormal detective squad, as well as being caught in a love triangle as epic as the TWILIGHT saga's.

She finds herself being forced to choose who she really wants to be with - the dark, brooding Wade, or the protective Alec. In a place where wolves are frequent guests and vampires run the town, will Eryn's life ever be normal?

Dripping with wit and humor, Judith Graves' UNDER MY SKIN is electric. Eryn battles werewolves, vampires, and high school armed with her unique sarcasm that all teens can relate to. She writes with a brutal honesty that makes her story stand out in a sea of novels and connects with the readers. Ms. Graves steps inside the reader's mind and leaves with the promise of two sequels in the future to keep your thirst at bay!

I was recommended this YA book by Amazon way back in 2011/2 due to my reading and browsing history. I liked the synopsis and fell in love with the cover so I bought a copy. Unfortunately, due to my large reading list, I have only recently been able to read it. However, since purchasing this book, it has since been re-edited and given a new cover in 2014. I can only review the original.

Eryn McCain is a wonderful character. She is not your average teen. In fact, she's not even human. Well, okay, she's part human. Her mother is a wolven and her father is human. However, she acts just like a normal teenager at times, full of angst. The only difference is that she is exceptionally strong and fast, and hunts werewolves.

This is a fast paced roller coaster ride of action and adventure. I started this book and was quickly engrossed in the tale. I was impressed with the illustrations interspersed throughout the book, but was surprised at their inclusion. However, they gave the reader a chance to picture the characters and scenes more easily, especially if a youngster is not as proficient in reading. I don't know if the illustrations were kept after the re-edit though.

There are some interesting characters in the book: Brit, a young goth who has her own secrets. Alec Delacroix is not really a bad guy, but as Eryn has been warned away from the family, she finds herself intrigued with him. Then there is Wade, the police chief's son. He's handsome and charming, but there is something about him that made my skin crawl. When I found out what was going on with him, I felt sorry for him.

The story is intricately woven with mystery and suspense. Just when I thought I had figured out what was going on, a twist would occur and I would have to begin again.

I just happened upon this beauty. I never thought I would sit down and read it start to finish in a few hours, then move onto the sequel Second Skin. I found myself captured by Judith's unique tale of were/witch/vamps and other creatures of the night. The characters are well established and have everyday concerns, well at least if you were a paranorm! I love the world Graves has created. Under My Skin is not your everyday run of the mill boy meets girl, girl falls for boy, HEA. It's more boy meets girl, girl tries to ignore boy, girl wants to eat boy ;) You get my point, hehe.

First off we have Eryn, now this girl has bite. Her attitude only equals her hunger for blood. Several times she had me laughing with her witty comments and antics. "the greedy material of his shirt clung to his muscular shoulders like a jealous ex-girlfriend". I honestly don't know where the author comes up with some of this stuff. I found that I liked Eryn even though she was not a very approachable character. She was definitely a girl who didn't take crap from people. I have to admire her for that. There are a few alpha MC's out there and Eryn is one of them. I like her!

Now is the hard part. We have two very different boys falling for out headstrong heroine. There is Alec and Wade. They are like night and day. My biggest problem....I don't know which one I like more. I mean they both have their merits. Alec looks out for Eryn and he has no problem with trying to get her to follow his lead. (yeah you saw that "trying" in there didn't you) Not that he is doing it to control her, but to keep her and the group safe. I get his point. He is the good boy, lets be honest. There were parts I just wanted to squeeze him he was just so dang cute and shy.
