Fear. Uncertainty. Wonder. Those three things are thrumming through me, pounding in my ears and coating my tongue with acid. All words that escape my mouth are wrong; I can’t explain how it feels to not remember—for chunks of my memory and hours of my night to have been erased. Erased? No… forgotten.
How do you forget whether you killed a person or not the night before?
Cassie Spencer’s human life is over, and the resulting consequences are flooding in. As she learns to adapt to her new life, pieces of her honorary family are unravelling. Every day is another spent worrying who Ash will take from her next. Though he’s not the only danger she should be concerned about.
A man turns up dead. Eaten.
The Hunters suspect Ash is behind it—one of his sadistic games. But who is really at fault?
And then there’s the mystery illness Cassie contracts, a disease unheard of by both her father and the elders. Can they find her a cure before her condition worsens?
Not every hero wears a cape. Some wear gray beanies.

Supernatural Characters: shape shifters – they turn into various animals – In the book they are described as “Skinwalkers”
Generally I would say this is suitable for older teens, especially with some of the unspoken references. The violence, although sporadic, is quite graphic and there is an underlying darkness as with book 1. Some discussion about the need to possibly drink blood should be noted (especially as this would normally be associated more with vampire based books than shape shifters).
