A great who-dun-it that kept me guessing until the end.
Surprisingly, this is the first Kelly Armstrong book I’ve read. I don’t know why, as I’ve known about her books for years and was a fan of the TV show Bitten which was an adaption from her book, but there you have it. It won’t be the last one I read, that’s for sure.
Ms. Armstrong did a great job laying out the clues and peppering the story with red herrings to keep me from zeroing in right away on the murderer. Oh sure, I suspected that person, but I wasn’t sure, and that’s all that mattered.
I really liked Dalton and Casey, their easy-going relationship, utter trust, and the chemistry between the two. I’ll definitely have to go back and read the Rockton series so I can see these two from the start. Actually, if you haven’t read that series, if might be helpful to read it first. I did feel a bit lost a few times with references to Rockton and what went wrong. But you don’t have to read it. Yolanda was also a great character. Strong. Secretive. Stubborn. Gunnar gave the story some run color and a little levity, which I always appreciate.
Great setting, characters, storyline, and setup for a new series. Looking forward to what comes next.
