Author: Olivia Stephens
Genre: LGBTQ Fantasy
Release Date: September 7, 2021
After sneaking out against her mother’s wishes, Artie Ivin spots a massive wolf then transforms into her mother. She discovers she comes from a long line of werewolves but werewolves aren’t the only creatures of the night.
This was a wonderful coming of age story filled with family, love, werewolves, and vampires. Artie was a wonderful teenage heroine. She struggles with school, friendship, love, and her new werewolf abilities. I found Artie’s story delightful, and very realistic of how it feels to be a teenager struggling to find their place in the world.
This was a fascinating world filled with werewolves and vampires, who are their enemies. I loved that the werewolves tended to stick together and form family groups. The vampires were extremely fascinating in this world because they could never be defeated, which was fascinating. This story definitely presented a unique vampire.
Overall, this was a wonderful coming of age story with werewolves and vampires.
Trigger Warnings: Artie is bullied at school. Artie’s father was killed before she was born.
