Now this was what I wish more YA was like! The story was engaging and tense, and the characters, while young and flawed, weren't eye-rollingly stupid and annoying.
I also liked the paranormal story line. The werewolves weren't all good or bad, and the humans were frequently more dangerous. Even the obligatory love triangle was handled well. I will read the next book in the series. I just hope it doesn't all go to hell in a handbasket in book two.
