Gr 9 Up—Now that they've helped in the escape at the rehibilitation camp, Mac and her friends are afraid of the Lupine infection spreading. The teen is also investigating the mysterious experiments taking place at Willowgrove. The dark and bloody werewolf series comes to an end in this conclusion to the trilogy.

Things have been tense since the events of Thornhill, Mac and her friends are trying to get back to real life, but that itself is a difficult task when Kyle, Serena, and Trey are still werewolves and Jason is still a member of the group dedicated to hunting them. Though he has changed a lot, he's know longer a true Tracker, but is now an inside man so to speak and does what he can to protect his friends.
The ultimate goal still remains trying to find a sort of peace where the weres can live peacefully in society among humans. But there's still a lot of hate towards them. Mac and her friends end up uncovering quite a bit about the disease and track things to an asylum called Willowgrove, which was a place far more scarier than Thornhill.
There were lots of surprises in this one! Characters that did things that totally blew me away! Things were just shocking! I can't get into more than that without giving away spoilers!
I love that despite all the chaos, that Mac and Kyle still found time for moments of romance! I've been Team Kyle since the beginning, despite Jason's feelings for her. And really, I never felt like this was a love triangle in that way where a "choice" had to be made. Mac pretty much knew from the getgo that Kyle was the one for her and I loved that too. I loved that there was none of this "oh who do I love more" conundrum.
I loved the pacing to this one too! It wasn't slow, but more a gradual buildup. Just as you hit one level on intensity, you're already moving onto the next! It was incredible! There were some character deaths, though I was prepared for a number due to Twitter awhile back, but there were only a very small number that tore at my heart. I was expecting some major heartache after seeing Kathleen tweet that number, but luckily, it was only minor heartache...if you can call that lucky!
The ending was remarkable! I truly loved it! It was very...fitting. I don't want to get into spoiler territory, so I will cut myself off from that! This was an amazing werewolf trilogy that brings up some real life issues in a way that isn't at all preachy or showy. It felt real! A highly recommended read!
Overall Rating 5/5 stars
I will always think of the Hemlock trilogy fondly; Willowgrove is a bittersweet send-off to the beloved characters that we have all come to cherish and admire. This third and final novel offers closure and hope while coming full circle with the dark events that originated in Hemlock all those months ago. Willowgrove delves deeper into the treacherous world of Hemlock giving the characters more dimension and soul. In this final chapter of the trilogy everything you thought you knew about Hemlock is wrong as, like Mac, you race to uncover the truth. This novel won't disappoint!
