Review - "Moon Spell' by Samantha Young

Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance... It’s bad enough feeling different among the human crowd, but feeling different among wolves? No one said returning to her pack would be easy, especially after ten years without them, but seventeen year old Caia Ribeiro is unprepared for the realities of the transition. Raised in a world where kids aren’t scared by bedtime tales of the bogeyman but by the real life threat of enemy supernaturals who might come creeping into their community to kill them in their sleep, Caia is used to the darkness; she’s used to the mystery and the intrigue of the ancient underworld war she’s bound to by chance of birth. What she’s having trouble with are pack members treating her with wary suspicion, the Elders tucking secrets behind their backs, and her young Alpha, Lucien, distracting her with a dangerous attraction from her decision to uncover the truth. But as the saying goes ‘the truth will out’ and when it does, Caia will only have so long to prepare herself before the war comes pounding on their door threatening to destroy the safe, secret lives of the wolves… and the girl they protect.

My review:

After many years away from her pack Caia is brought back to them as her powers of a wolf are starting to show.  Not only is she thrown into a world that she is not comfortable with, there is the added distraction of Lucien, the packs Alpha.   Caia is finding out that there are many secrets about her and that everyone is doing anything possible to keep them hidden however secrets aren’t meant to be kept hidden for ever and Caia learns that what was supposed to be a safe haven turns out to be the total opposite and how yeah you can’t forget her growing feelings for Lucien, the one man she tells herself she shouldn’t care for. 


                                            I have read many werewolf stories, all of them unique in their own ways and this one was just as a good as the others.  The story was well written given the reader a sense that they are there following in Caia’s shadows, feeling her uneasiness, pain and happiness.  I absolutely loved the dynamic between Lucian and Caia…the don’t come near me but don’t be too far away from me attraction, the one that both of them are finding it hard to ignore. 

Great story and a great addition to your to be read list!
