Synopsis on Goodreads:
In the woods above Lambsridge, is it really the wolves you need to be afraid of...?
"The girl stares at the church door, unsure how she has ended up in this place. Above, the clear night sky is black as fear, while pale mist curls between the trees, low and sinister. It snakes around her ankles, as if to pull her back into the darkness from which THEY are coming.
Clouds gather overhead to hide the awful truth of what is to about to happen…"
Hazel’s family history is rooted in the tiny village of Lambsridge, where wolves roam wild behind a secure barbed wire fence. Shunned by the town kids and humiliated at school, she dreams of a life of excitement in the outside world. But when her family are threatened, she can no longer ignore the dark and menacing danger that lurks at the heart of the old traditions.
I loved the suspense involved throughout this book which added to the plot and story line having the reader try and figure out what was happening as the story progressed. The intensity of the storyline kept the reader interested in what was going on and made the book as a whole fast paced.
I thought that the characters overall were well written and multifaceted. Hazel was quite well rounded and the author fit her behavioral pattern to her age range perfectly.
This was a great read that I would recommend to anyone for a nice story line and just enough thrill for an afternoon read.
