TEEN: Claire De Lune - Christine Johnson


Hanover Falls hasn't had a werewolf problem in over one hundred years. But when people suddenly start dying in Claire Benoit's town, panic spreads fast. At Claire's sixteenth birthday party, the gruesome killings are all anyone can talk about. Claire, however, is more interested in the fact that the gorgeous Matthew Engle 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...


A new take on the Werewolf mythos for the next generation as our heroine learns that the world is completely different to what she expected. Add to the mix a separate take on the whole wolf mythos and a huge dollop of paranoia backed up with a cracking story arc and it was definitely a title that I could enjoy. What also makes this title worth the readers time is the way in which you can connect with the principle protagonista as she has real human worries alongside those of her supernatural nature which made this a pure joy to read. A great offering and one that I can’t wait to see what Christine does next with.
