Review: If I were a teenage girl I would definitely want to move to Erris. I know that you have to get the background information down but this left me wanting more. You just get started on a romance between Lexie and Torrin then bam the story is over.

Lexie moves to a small town at the request of her mother’s new husband. Off they go to live in a small town in the middle of nowhere.

Lexie has been having dreams for the last year about this hunk. He consumes her with a longing she doesn’t quite understand. She enjoys going to sleep because then she has the opportunity to dream about her fantasy love.

But when she goes to a party with some of the local kids she meets at a diner, her dream guy is there face to face with her. The instant attention is strong. They leave to get to know one another only to have it end with the arrival of her step brother.

Torn she feels she needs to go home with her brothers.

Along the way her mom and sister seem to have adapted or have they? She finds her mother crying at times but is brushed off when she asks what is wrong.

Unable to contact her best friend Liz, she loses her cell phone privileges among other things, so much happens and Lexie just needs a friend and really wants to move back to her old life. Lexie soon learns that she needs to trust her instincts. Trusting her instincts will help her find out who she can trust, at first she feels a connection with the middle brother but, will soon learn that nothing seems as it appears and her world will be ripped apart.

You see her new family isn’t what they appear to be. And her hunky dream date is something different also.

She soon learns after the town experiences some brutal killings, first with animals and then with townspeople.

With the help of Torrin’s parents she learns the story behind how they came into existence. This helps her to understand that Torrin isn’t a monster. But, deep down I think she knew it all along.

As Lexie discovers the truth as to what Torrin is and her brothers she has decisions to make. Will she end up making the right ones? She needs to be strong in order to survive what is ahead for her.

Ms. Wheeler takes us into the ongoing battle between werewolves and vampires. She leaves us wanting more. This is a nice first book and I look forward to reading the rest of the series to see what happens to the rest of the characters.
