Hi. My name is Grazi Kelly. There are things I know are true and things that I never would have guessed. First, demons and witches exist and they are evil. Second, the world is up for grabs and the witches are getting their minions ready. Third, I’m a werewolf and it’s my job to stop them.
High school sophomore Grazi Kelly leads an ordinary life in the suburbs of New Jersey helping her grandmother with chores and attending Catholic school. Things are pretty good except for her bullying cousin and the rest of the obnoxious cheer team. Then things take a frightening turn when the night of the full moon arrives and the bodies start piling up. Grazi learns that she is different in ways she never expected. She finds herself torn between Sebastian, the school soccer star and Ronan, a foreign exchange student who shares her secret. She must uncover the identity behind the mysterious attacker, but is she ready for the entire truth?
Grazi Kelly’s life has been pretty low key. She has been raised by her grandmother since her parents’ deaths, attending a Catholic school, and was living the life of a typical young girl. But, that all ends when her uncle reveals that she is a werewolf. Not just any werewolf, but a descendant of a very important and powerful werewolf! She must now learn how to control her powers and protect humans from all supernatural beings. Add in a very jealous rival/cousin, the attention of two attractive boys, and lessons on how to control her powers and be the best werewolf she can be, and you can see the dilemma that poor Grazi must deal with.
The author does an amazing job of writing a character (Grazi) that is easy to care about. She is an endearing teen who must learn to balance her new life (being a werewolf) with her everyday teen life. Grazi’s life has been simple until recently. She loves her grandmother and didn’t socialize much outside of that. I first thought that this was going to be a typical coming of age story of a shifter, but that is not the case at all! The author has woven a tale so different from any other YA paranormal story I have read.
My only complaint is that I lost an entire day because I could not put this story down. Well done, Ms. Gorri…well done!
