Hemlock could be the perfect town, aside from the fact that its swarmed with werewolves. Many of its residents suffer from Lupine Syndrome-also known as the werewolf virus-and are either thrust away to rehabilitation camps, or hiding the fact that they’re infected. No biggie, except the infected living in secret could also suffer from the uncontrollable urge to kill.
Mackenzie and Amy were inseparable until Amy was brutally killed by a werewolf. Now, Mac is determined to find her best friend’s killer and put an end to her horrifying dreams, but what she doesn’t know is that the killer is closer to her than she thinks.
Kathleen Peacock delivers a suspenseful, mysterious, and romantic urban fantasy that will leave you blindsided.

Clare Fern is now popular in high school and around town. Her previous activities involving aiding the police with her ‘gift’ has piqued the interest of many, including former enemies Kendall and Brooke. The in-crowd seems to be warming up to her but is it for who she is or what she can do? While Clare continues to question their motives, one person remains the same and she’s neither flattered nor impressed by this suddenly famous psychic.

The follow-up, while still enjoyable, left me with mixed feelings. It’s not that I didn’t like it, its just that the ‘Perception‘ wasn’t always clear, and the story was a bit drawn out and somewhat lacked the element of spontaneity. Continue reading “Book Review – ‘Perception’ by Kim Harrington”

I did miss a few of the releases prior to this one, but I must admit, Deathly Hallows has gotten my attention.
