4 Stars

This book starts off brilliantly. it has a great opening scene with drama and potential danger, but with a main character who's thoughts are completely out of place -but yet an accurate portrayal of how some people's brain can distract itself in highly emotional situations. Like when you're about to give a talk and suddenly remember that joke you were told last week, or you're about to get eaten by a wolf and you begin to wonder if he flosses.

I was a bit confused to begin with as I read the sections from Jacks POV, I just couldn't quite grasp what was happening in the pack side of the story. I also didn't like the huge jump in time which happens in part two, which takes us back to almost the beginning so that we can see the action so far from a new POV. I wanted a more flowing story, although I guess it did build up suspense as we wait to read the ending of the previous dramatic scene.

Apart from these two aspects, I really enjoyed this book. It was fascinating to Sadie's story as she begins to settle into her new town, makes some new friends, and how she deals with her PTSD. It also has a lovely ending but I need just a wee bit more, so I am off to check out the sequel novella.
