I loved this book and cannot wait to read more from C.D. Bell!
Nessa Kurland is trying her best to earn a college scholarship for her cross-country running. One night, a girl on her team who claims running at night could help Nessa progress, plans to meet up with her at a local trail. Nessa is a tad late so she tries to catch up with her team-mate. It’s dark on the trail and Nessa thinks she see’s something in the woods and then happens upon a wolf stuck in a trap. Nessa has a heart for animals, same as her mother who works at the veterinary clinic and Nessa decides that she is going to try to free the wolf. Next thing she knows, she is waking up in a hospital room with a wolf bite to her hip, jeopardizing any hope she had at getting that running scholarship. Then she starts to remember that it wasn’t the wolf that was trapped that bit her…there were two wolves.
Nessa’s wound starts to heal quicker than normal, her hearing becomes magnified as well as she can now see perfectly without her contacts….changes that happen overnight! Nessa soon finds out that bite from the wolf will lead her down a powerful and freighting path transforming into a full werewolf! But why was Nessa chosen? We soon find out why and delve into a story brushed with human darkness and a town with an eerie past that is now affecting the future of the town and even Nessa’s own family.
