Colin is a teenager. If that wasn't hard enough to deal with, he happens to be a werewolf too. Luckily, he lives in a town where magical creatures can mix with 'normals' and lead a somewhat peaceful life. That is, until classrooms explode, strange men with evil eyes appear and killer werewolves haunt the forest. Now, Colin not only has to survive algebra, he has to figure out what danger is about to destroy the town and keep his inner werewolf from controlling him.
This is the second book in the series, and although I'd highly recommend reading the first one, there is enough background information to sink into this book without reading book one.
Colin is a fairly normal guy. He's level-headed, pretty mature in his decision making but still a teen, which sometimes means getting into more trouble than he'd hoped. He's settled pretty well into his new existence as a werewolf and enjoys a little more popularity at school since his adventures in book one. But he still is awkward and doesn't really fit in. In other words, he's a pretty average teen and easy to sympathize with and like.
Although Colin has some fairly impressive werewolf powers and gets to show off in several scenes, this is also a story of friendship and working together. Colin takes the lead. . .somewhat hesitantly. . .but it's the support from those around him which help him pull through. But even this doesn't always work smoothly. Every character has their own quirks, and not all of them are ready to help him. Despite all of the magic and fantasy, the relationships and dialogue between the characters stays realistic and makes the story feel like it could happen in any school—if there was magic, that is.
The pacing holds steady the entire way through, making this a read which is hard to set down until the very last page. There are layers of mystery, and although some things are easy to predict, others come as a complete surprise. It's not a deep read but weaves a constant flow of humor into the action. Even the romance stays light and never overshadows the main plot or fun. The only disappointment to this tale is that it does have a last page. But luckily, there will be more to come.
I received a complimentary copy and loved the adventure so much that I wanted to leave my honest thoughts.
His first mission didn't go to plan. Having his senses blocked by some weird guy with glowing red eyes and changing into a werewolf in front of a large portion of the population of Seattle definitely wasn't on his 'to do list'.
Returned to Elkwood and removed from the Night Watch was a huge blow to Colin, but when they go werewolf chasing in Europe and leave him behind it is more than just infuriating; Colin is a badass werewolf and that little incident in Seattle was just a one off and he was a key part of the team, or so he thought.
Once they have gone things get worse, and he is the only one who can protect Elkwood from the storm brewing; well there is Becca, his grandmother, a batty wizard and a military base full of soldiers and supernatural prisoners, but they don't realize that the town is threatened until it is almost too late.
This novel is another winner by Andrew and continues his tradition of excellent stories that you can't put down, except for bathroom breaks, although they might not be a reason to stop reading either.
I great book that I heartily recommend, as I would with all the novels he as written. Worth every single star I have given it.
A MUST read!!
