Editorial Reviews

Review

"The authors are clearly having fun, packing in lots of tongue-in-cheek lupine references...[the] conclusion that leaves central mysteries unsolved will have readers howling for the next installment."-- Booklist

"Readers who prefer female leads who fight their own supernatural demons to those who just kiss them will like Katelyn’s ultimately personal involvement in the secret werewolf community of Wolf Springs, AR." -- School Library Journal

This was an exceptionally slow and uneventful first book. * minor spoilers, but nothing that important*

Nothing happened until over 200 pages of reading a book about people talking and then everything went downhill as she forces herself to keep it a secret from everyone. I think the key word for this book was "secret". I was tempted to skip ahead, but didn't because SOMETHING had to happen... maybe it was just on the next page. I hate when I'm wrong.

The next attention grabbing event doesn't occur until 150 pages later. The most interesting incident that happens in the book, the part the entire book is building up toward finally happens and it might as well not have happened because it was given about 2 paragraphs and then it's back to the crazy talk. The cover and name of this book makes it quite obvious what the book is about, and it's nothing but a blip in this first book. The last sentence of the book, about 30 pages later made me want to scream ( I didn't). In this one last sentence the authors finally got it together enough to make waiting for the next book difficult.

I have to point out that I did read this book in one night, although my mind did stray from the words sometimes. I was so embarrassed by the way people were treating Kat. Kissing her and then yelling at her in the next breath. She has a sleep over with her "best" friend, and that was even awkward to read. Even her best friend from California suddenly seems to give up on their friendship. I stopped reading halfway through the book for a bit because I was so irritated with the characters and all their SECRETS. This book is filled with a lot of talking, all everyone does is talk. But not really talk. It's hard to talk when everything is a secret.

The writing duo Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié are back again with another young adult series. This time, the setting is a rural town located in the Ozark Mountains; well, that's where Katelyn McBride ends up after her mother dies in a fire. The whole situation is sad. Katelyn blames herself for her mother's death. She's still in shock over the loss when she moves from Los Angeles to Wolf Springs. Between some of the creepy townsfolk and the eerie woods, I could almost hear banjos playing in the background. This story definitely has the creepy-factor going for it.

Complain if you will that the plot isn't original or some of the characters are stereotypical--I simply didn't care. From the get-go, this young adult werewolf story had me hooked. By the description, I thought there'd be more romance. There's the beginnings of a love triangle brewing, but this story was more about the drama of moving in with a grandfather she doesn't know very well and trying to fit in. It was also about trying to stay alive, because a killer is on the loose. I have a feeling there will be more romance in the future installments.

Bottom line, I can't wait to read book two. This is my first book by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié. I enjoyed it so much, I'd like to try another series while waiting for book two of the Wolf Springs Chronicles to come out. I do want to warn potential readers of the cliffhanger ending. It wasn't harsh, but there's one all the same.

I'm actually one of the few who didn't fully enjoy reading this book. I feel like the YA genre is so saturated in angels, vampires and werewolves that if you're going to read one, it needs to be different and exciting. Many readers will love this book because it's a short ride over from the currently popular book and movie franchise from Meyer. A heroine moves from a sunny city to a forest, it's a small town so everyone knows about the new girl, she corrects people that her name isn't Katelyn (Isabella) but Kat (Bella), and there's a love triangle. I honestly hate, hate, hate comparing books to Meyer's books, but this one had a lot of similarities. So if you're a fan then I urge you to pick up Unleashed because it will appeal to you.

I also had a hard time getting into the book because of Katelyn herself. I don't understand why the author comments about her interests in gymnastics and dance at the beginning if they aren't mentioned or a part of anything throughout the rest of the book. (I'm a ballerina and really was looking forward to Katelyn maybe finding a new studio if she was so good and wanted to be in the big leagues. She also annoyingly talks to herself with dumb comments. Like when she's introduced to Trick and she wonders if that's his name or a trick... even though she was introduced to him as such, and then down the page asks again about his name. On the same chapter when she's talking about Trick's ethnicity I want to roll my eyes, she goes from not Caucasian, to dark to Native American to Russian and the inner monologue makes her sound like she's empty upstairs. I think perhaps I'm too old for this book, but it wasn't horrible. So I give it three stars knowing I'll probably never read the second book, but that this will appeal to a good chunk of YA paranormal romance readers out there.

This book was a little slow moving for my tastes. I understand it is setting up to be the beginning of a series, but I struggled to keep interest long enough to make it to the end of this book. Luckily the last third of the book was far more interesting. As things start to pick up for Kat I actually stayed up way past my bedtime to finish it.

Katelyn is forced to move to L.A. to the middle of nowhere, Wolf Springs. Her mother died in an earthquake (while saving Katelyn). This leaves Kat orphaned, as her father died years earlier, and in the care of a grandfather who has kept his distance since her father's death. Their relationship is well drawn and has some really sweet moments. However, like most of Wolf Springs there is an element to it that Kat doesn't understand. A mystery! There are half finished sentences and so many 'oh, we can't speak about that.' moments between Kat and pretty much every other character in the book.

Even by the end of the book most of the mysteries haven't been revealed, as the one big secret we get let in on is the one that was pretty easy to figure out from the get go.

What makes this book a little more enticing than I expected is its reworking of the King Lear story into it. I wondered as I was reading if that was going to be the case, as right away Kat's new best friend is named Cordelia. She has two older sisters, Regan and Arial (guess they didn't want to name her Gonneril?). And their dad is going nuts. Most of the King Lear frame work isn't really easy to spot or sketched out until that back third of the book. It was fun to try and remember what I could from the play as I read this part. I actually will find it interesting to see how much more of Shakespeare they can work into the rest of the series. However, this was still a slow read and I won't be rushing out to find the rest of this series when it comes out.
