Becoming a werewolf is not an option for seventeen-year-old Lacey Quinn, but death can be a strong motivator. Lacey is so focused on her future that everyday life has passed her by. Counting down the days to her eighteenth birthday, Lacey is almost home free. But when she falls for the mysterious Alex Morris, she lands in the middle of an ancient war between two enemy wolf packs. Tempting dreams, tantalizing lies and a dangerous love triangle ensues leaving Lacey heartbroken and confused. Lacey's fate rests in the hands of Alex and Brandon, but both are pulling her strings for their own agendas. Even as she slips further into the dark world of werewolves, Lacey struggles to find the truth and save the only family she's ever know.

My Review:

Once upon a time, way back when I was 13 years old, I thought this was the BEST book ever written. I don't agree with my 13 year old self anymore. Maybe I used to like books with frustrating heroines that couldn't make up her damn mind, but not anymore.

I lost count of how many times I wanted to break my phone in half because of how indecisive Lacey was. One moment she loves Alex and the next "oh Brandon can't die because of me" and after that "oh well, who cares! Certainly NOT me!". That got old by the first half of the book.

I really disliked how she just threw around the L word (Love). Maybe it's just me, but the way I see it you LOVE your family, you LOVE your dog, you DON'T LOVE the guy you know for about 2 weeks.

The guys (Alex & Brandon) were so pushy and domineering. She had to do this and that and had to 'please' them. URGH....What century are you living in? She doesn't have to pick anyone, nor does she have to 'please' them.

The story was nicely narrated and the writing was easy to get into and follow (if you ignore Lacey and her whirlwind of emotions, confusion and naivety) it's truly a wonderful book. I really wanted to agree with my 13 year old self, but it just couldn't happen. Maybe it's because I already have an idea of what I want a heroine to be like in a book and this book just doesn't represent that anymore.
