Elena Michaels is the world s only female werewolf And she s tired of it Tired of a life spent hiding and protecting, a life where her most important job is hunting down rogue werewolves Tired of a world that not only accepts the worst in her her temper, her violence but requires it Worst of all, she realizes she s growing content with that life, with being that personSo she left the Pack and returned to Toronto where she s trying to live as a human When the Pack leader calls asking for her help fighting a sudden uprising, she only agrees because she owes him Once this is over, she ll be squared with the Pack and free to live life as a human Which is what she wants Really Elena Michaels is the most idiotic and annoying main character ever As if it s not bad enough that she s the stereotypical urban fantasy heroine hates being different , continually tries to be normal , etc , she s also just plain stupid The spends the entire book swearing on her life that she doesn t love Clay ex fiance, turned her into a werewolf, blah blah blah , and yet is cuddling up with him and spending time with him the whole time, DESPITE the fact that she keeps saying how much Elena Michaels is the most idiotic and annoying main character ever As if it s not bad enough that she s the stereotypical urban fantasy heroine hates being different , continually tries to be normal , etc , she s also just plain stupid The spends the entire book swearing on her life that she doesn t love Clay ex fiance, turned her into a werewolf, blah blah blah , and yet is cuddling up with him and spending time with him the whole time, DESPITE the fact that she keeps saying how much she cares about her human boyfriend back home.And then, whenever Clay tries to get serious about her and him getting back together, she completely shuts him out and shouts at him for no reason and doesn tlisten to a word he says.If the story hadn t revolved around Elena Michaels, the book would ve been passable But since it did revolve around her, it was awful.Full review Had any of the characters been even half as cool as this guy I may have keep reading Or to beaccurate I should say I may have read it correctly

through their eyes, their fingers and their brains even.This book, to me, equals The Hunger Games and that s VERY high praise I think I may actually enjoy itthan the Fever Series though I don t want to go saying anything I can t take back I m off to read the next books, hoping against hope that this one wasn t a fluke and that they are as well written and incredible as this one was If they re not, I think my heart is going to break You know when you don t really expect to like a book based on the fact that you re prejudiced to its contents For example, thanks to Twilight, I am completely Team Vampire and I m terribly ashamed at having brought Twilight up, trust me so anything Werewolf ish automatically sets off some inner resentment Knowing this book was about werewolves just made me go blegh but I was suddenly determined to give it a chance, and so I did Oh My God FANTASTIC I was utterly absorbed by this book You know when you don t really expect to like a book based on the fact

utterly absorbed by this book from the first page, completely mesmerised by the characters playing out on the pages before me I was mentally crying as I neared the final page, torn between needing to finish and wanting it to last forever and ever This book is thrilling, entertaining, hilarious it had me in hysterics , steamy, sexy, tragic it s honestly just a rollercoaster of adjectives Elena is the most amusing narrator I ve come across in a long time, whether she means to be or not She is truly a unique voice and I wished that Armstrong had continued the series from Elena s point of view because I m IN LOVE with her Really, even when I wanted to strangle her for stupidity, I loved her I could say that about Clay, too GOD, I loved Clay, even when I hated him These are those rare types of characters you never want to let go once you ve found them Honestly, I could ramble for ages but I m trying to contain myself Trust me, if you have any doubts about reading this, just push past them and give this book a go You can t go wrong
