In the woods above Lambsridge, is it really the wolves you need to be afraid of...? "The girl stares at the church door, unsure how she has ended up in this place. Above, the clear night sky is black as fear, while pale mist curls between the trees, low and sinister. It snakes around her ankles, as if to pull her back into the darkness from which THEY are coming. Clouds gather overhead to hide the awful truth of what is to about to happen…" Hazel’s family history is rooted in the tiny village of Lambsridge, where wolves roam wild behind a secure barbed wire fence. Shunned by the town kids and humiliated at school, she dreams of a life of excitement in the outside world. But when her family are threatened, she can no longer ignore the dark and menacing danger that lurks at the heart of the old traditions.

Nov 24, 2012Although not the typical genre I would read I really enjoyed this teenage supernatural story. The suspense filled mystery build up from page one until the end with the possibility of a follow up. I met Chrissie Parkes through Bookblogs when she requested reviewers for this book. The blurb on Smashwords intrigued me and I mailed her. We met a twelve year old that for the duration of the book seemed more like a twenty something young woman. Her circumstances forced her to be mature, thinking like a grown up to protect her family. Her clear objectives and thoughtful observations struck you from the get go and a few times I had to make sure that it was infact a twelve year old girl's view. The grown ups, especially the mother with her tantrum filled personality really annoyed me. It seems her way of conversation was to scream, frankly that just do not "gel" with me. She knew the answers to all the frightful things going on in the village but instead of being subtle and... More > protecting her children added to the fear and worries of Jed, Hazel and Molly. The absent father quivered away not taking up the responsibility of fatherhood and is easily manipulated and threatened. While he knew what his children were facing. Trapped in a world of secrets young Hazel is faced with normal teenage growing pains, fitting into a world she does not belong. Joining the Running Club to protect a friend she makes more enemies then friends. Her young friends trying to protect her while she tries to understand what is going on in her family life and why her family is falling apart. While the wolves is kept in the back ground, caged in a reservation and kept at a distance with no idea why they are so important to her or the "Lambers" the village she lives in, set apart from the rest of the world. The unusual church life the center of this village that borders on cults, over protective of their secrets and way of life allowing no outsiders in. Since no grown up is willing to be honest she has to find her own answers that lead her into trouble each time. Her contact with the wolves the high light of the story, drawing you in and keep your intention to the very last page. A very good clean read for teenagers that loves mystery and the supernatural world of wolves. This is not the typical shapeshifters stories but the plot will keep you wondering till the very end. The author does not give anything away and then still you are left with questions. Well done Chrissie Parkes.< Less
