About this Book:
Mackenzie and Amy were best friends. Until Amy was brutally murdered.
Since then, Mac’s life has been turned upside down. She is being haunted by Amy in her dreams, and an extremist group called the Trackers has come to Mac’s hometown of Hemlock to hunt down Amy’s killer: A white werewolf.
Lupine syndrome—also known as the werewolf virus—is on the rise across the country. Many of the infected try to hide their symptoms, but bloodlust is not easy to control.
Wanting desperately to put an end to her nightmares, Mac decides to investigate Amy’s murder herself. She discovers secrets lurking in the shadows of Hemlock, secrets about Amy’s boyfriend, Jason, her good pal Kyle, and especially her late best friend. Mac is thrown into a maelstrom of violence and betrayal that puts her life at risk.
Yes, there are tons of werewolf books out on the market. Yes, some of them are good. Some of them are real good. Oh, but this book was really, really good!!! I wanted to devour it. I wanted to quit my job so that I could spend the rest of the night reading it. It was amazing!
I loved the whole concept of the book. It may have a plot that is being well exercised by many authors right now but Peacock takes it to a whole new level. This book is a completely different kind of werewolf book.
Mac is a character that you right away are sucked into her life. You mourn over the loss of her best friend with her, you stare at the book and you are just as confused with her about what is going on, and you become torn with her when Kyle and Jason tilt her world.
I found myself falling in love with both characters Kyle and Jason at the same time. Both of them are great guys but they have dark secrets that are coming into the light and I wanted nothing more than just to help them; that is how much I was sucked into this book. I wanted to knock them in the head when both of them couldn’t get their problems straight. And I felt this way because Peacock wrote character that were so lovable.
Seriously, it was wonderful! I can’t wait for the second book.
