Her pool party is a big success, and gorgeous Matthew keeps chatting and flirting with her as if she’s the only girl there. But that night, she discovers something that takes away all sense of normalcy: she’s a werewolf. As Claire is initiated into the pack of female werewolves, she must deal not only with her changing identity, but also with a rogue werewolf who is putting everyone she knows in danger. Claire’s new life threatens her blossoming romance with Matthew, whose father is leading the werewolf hunt. Now burdened with a dark secret and pushing the boundaries of forbidden love, Claire is struggling to feel comfortable in either skin. With her lupine loyalty at odds with her human heart, she will make a choice that will change her forever...
What I really liked about this book was that there was a unexplained reason for why Claire's Mother hated Matthew's Father so much. She said she hated him because of his cures that didn't actually work, and also simply just becasue of his undefined hatred of werewolves. I thought it was awesome that directly after her birthday party she started itching behind her ears and her arms and getting this horrible rash before she went out on the date with Matthew.
I also loved the time when Claire's Mother told her that she was a werewolf and Claire was so shocked she didn't beleiver her-which also connects to another one of Claire De Lune's highlights-when Claire saves him from being killed. I'm not going to tell you who [that would ruin it for you!] but I will tell you it is someone in the pack. But I definetely thought this book was great. Maybe not one of my immediate favorites, but a book that I like enough that I hope I can buy myself a copy.
5 stars (Perfect!)
