"For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without.
Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human… until the cold makes him shift back again.
Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human—or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever."
My Review: This is the second time I read this book. The reason I started this book before was because a classmate did an oral book report on it and I loved it so much and wanted to read this book. It pulled me from the plot and everything. To me this was better the second time around then the first. Its not typical but it is in a way. It still has the forbidden love in it. The reason it is in not a typical werewolf story is because the way the author set up which I will explain more to when I get into the plot. The chapters were short and quick making this a really fast pace read. For the cover I used the UK edition because it is amazing and better than US edition. Below the review I will post where you can buy the both editions of the book. Anyways the cover fits the book.
So the plot is what made me want to read this book. One out of two main characters is Grace. Grace was attacked when she was younger. For some reason though she didn't change. Which is what I really want to find out no matter how bad the next books are or how good they are this better be solved. Anyways Sam is the person who saved her which is the other main character. Sam is a werewolf every summer he turns into a human while during winter he turns back. The problem is you only have a certain amount of time to change back and worth and forth. Well for Sam time is running out. Sam and Grace meet they fall in love and now Sam has to fight to stay human or go as wolf and leave Grace behind. There is a major plot twist at the end.
The characters in this book are Grace and Sam they fall in love and one of them is a werewolf so yeah. This book is told from both point of views and it doesn't get confusing. Both of the characters are sweet and are perfect for each other. They deserve a happy ending at the end of this series. They really do. I'm shipping them. I mean Sam is one of mine book boyfriends but not on the top of the list.
Overall this was a really good book and I rate it:
