I had a difficult time getting into this book at first, but by the end I was hooked. I really dislike how this book ends. I despise it when authors end the book on a cliffhanger; as a reader and consumer I feel cheated....only getting a partially finished book. ( )

Full of teen angst, a love triangle and an unknown power that makes her more than the others- just too common of a plot right now. It did have the most terrifying girl changing the tire at night scene, you know the one your guardian told you never get out and change a tire at night alone in the dark- okay you get where this is going right ? That scene scared me, really, well done.
The characters were hit and miss, the three main ones were a hit, Trick the sexy country boy with some mysterious something who is goofy and kind. Justin the bad boy, complete with a motorcycle and attitude, who drives her toes to curl and twist in knots. Then their is Kat the girl whose parents are dead, the girl from LA now force into back country life, the girl who is very different. She lives with her grandfather "ED" as she calls him, he could have something there, there were hints.
I enjoyed it, it just was not a great story. It was filled with too much babble about how her parents died and her LA life style, her past and not enough about the now in the book. The last 25% of the book held almost all the story and then ended with a doozy of a cliffhanger. I want to know, what, who... but not sure my interest will hold out for the next book to be available.

I read this for the first time last year when it came out and loved it, I love it even more this time! It might not be action packed but the book has so much suspense in it!! I liked Katelyn as the main character. She isn't kick ass but she also isn't a meek little thing. She losses her mother and has to go live with her grandfather in the middle of nowhere. She has to start a new school so her granddad gets someone to drive her there. Enter Trick whos hot, sweet but also mysterious. She makes friends with Cordelia Fenner whose family is very odd and from then on out something happens to Kat that changes her life forever.
I loved everything about this book, it has tons of mystery, suspense and also hot guys!! We get to see Kat grow up alot and deal with alot of heartache. I loved the myths and legends that Wolf Springs has and the mystery surrounding the town. There are so many shady characters and you just dont know "who done it". I highly recommend and look forward to reading more :) ( )

Did not finish. Waaaaay too teen angst-y for me. Should have realized that immediately. Still, the writing seems strong. ( )

Characters who pissed me off: Katelyn, Cordelia, Coredlia's entire weird psychopath family, Stephen (yes, I know he's part of Cordelia's family, but he gets to be named just because he's a douche), the Coach in the book, Kimi, Lucy, Basically every character in this book

Characters who didn't piss me off: Ed, Trick, and Jesse (Yes, he's part of Cordelia's family, but he's too adorable to hate)

Only 3 characters didn't make me want to bludgeon them, THREE. Although after I saw the "A new trilogy with the passion of Twilight and the grandeur of Fallen" thing, I wasn't expecting much. Twilight sucks. Fallen sucks even worse. Why anyone would want to model their books after them is beyond me, but whatever. I did not like this book. I did not like the characters, I did not like the plot (I use the term plot loosely because, well, there really wasn't a plot.) I did not enjoy this book at all. Katelyn is basically a judgmental brat who jumps to conclusions that are so far out of the realm of reasonable, that I often found myself either:

1) Facepalming
2) Head-Desking
3) Saying "What the hell?!"
4) A wonderful combination of all 3

I know we were supposed to feel sympathy for her Her mother died in an earthquake/fire trying to save her. Which was Katelyn's fault because she was acting like a fucktard and kind of just chilling in the smoke but she messed up right at the beginning. Later on I felt a little sympathy for her because Kimi sucks as a person, but she quickly lost it by being an idiot.

Justin is a cheating douche, that is all.

Kimi is a shitastic "best friend" who completely forgets about Katelyn a week after she moves. I mean really? If my best friend moved half way around the country, I would be calling her, and skyping* her (side note about this later), and making plans to visit her over breaks, and e-mailing, and im'ing and texting, and basically staying in contact with her 24/7. What did Kimi do? She found a new best friend within a week. A WEEK!

Cordelia is kind of self-centered, like at first I liked her, but then she was rude to Trick, and later she just morphed into this incredibly annoying person and her only goal was to let everyone know how badly her life sucked. Oh and Coredlia's family? They're all batshit. Like seriously, they're all crazy. When Cordelia brought Kat home, her sisters come out and go "It looks like a stranger, it smells like a stranger too." Like wtf? If I were Kat I would have hightailed it out of there. Cordelia's dad is just as crazy, but he's more of a sneak-up-behind-you-and-stab-you-in-the-back crazy, than a run-towards-you-with-an-ax-screaming-like-a-banshee crazy like Cordelia's sisters. But basically, they're all just crazy, just different kinds.

*Way to play into the podunk smalltown stereotype, Holder. I mean really? They have no internet? No cell service? Their school doesn't even have a librarian? She went way beyond the realm of reasonable and started treading in pulling it out of her ass territory. Personally, I live in Colorado, and i've noticed that people tend to do the same thing when they have the book taking place in Colorado. For future reference:

1) It does not snow in CO every day
2) There are not mountains everywhere in CO
3) Denver is not a "small town." Neither is Aurora.
4) Most schools in CO don't have ski teams.
5) Not everyone in CO knows how to ski (I've lived here my whole 18 years and I've never gone skiing in any of those 6574 days.)

I know, I got off topic, but those things infuriate me whenever I see them. If you're going to write about something, do RESEARCH on it. Don't just buy into every stereotype you've ever heard and assume that they're true. Most of the time, they're not. ( )
