About the Book

Just your average boy-meets-girl, boy-kills-people story.

The Native American Navajo tribe has stories of a monster so wicked, so blood-thirsty, that they are to be hunted down and slaughtered. But are they just legends? Or is something sinister lurking in the shadows? The Yee Naaldlooshi—skinwalkers—have the ability to transform themselves. And they can be anyone. Anything.

The Hunters—a group dedicated to tracking the creatures—are hot on their trail and they won’t stop until every last one is dead. But are they all as evil as foretold? Seb, alpha of the Taylor, Arizona reservation pack, begins to question the acts of their kind. But he’s broken a rule and must choose between killing the girl he loves or risking everything to save her. Cassie must fight for her survival. The pack is after her. And they’re no joke. Cass is about to find out how sadistic they can be.

Violence
4
In a dream seb (as a wolf) attacks Cas and she stabs him with a silver knife and he bleeds out. The pack attacks and tries to kill Seb to replace himas pack leader. Threats from the pack to Cas. Friend is murdered but you hear about it after the fact which is why I left it a 4. Some fighting in human and animal form. Cas is attacked and some of her skin is peeled off.
Language
5
Pissed used several times to describe anger. One use of the word f*cking, B*tch used in a variety of ways (b*tchface, sonofab*tch etc) God (used as in oh my god) Freak-Lover and Killer are written on a locker. Pissed, f**king, B**ch, sh*t, d**n, he**, bada**,
Romance/Sensuality
3
Some flirting early and Seb blows Cas a kiss. Some light kissing on their first proper date. Some more intimate kissing later in the book (after shower scene where Seb sees Cas in just a towel). Some groping but clothes stay on. Lots of Seb and Cas spending the night together. No actual sex but things get pretty intense at times.
Drugs/Alcohol/Smoking
2
Couple of mentions of Dad having a beer. Totally appropriate. Dad gets drunk on Whiskey later in the book when things start getting bad.

 

Super Natural Characters:

Shapeshifters – they turn into various animals  – In the book they are described as “Skinwalkers”
