“I wasn’t sure how long I’d been running for or how much land I’d covered. When I felt the ground start to rise slowly uphill I knew it was a good sign. I was moving forward and not in circles. It was about the only thing that had gone right for me so far. The second I thought that, a red-hot stabbing pain burned along my spine. I yelled out and fell to my knees.”
– Who’s Afraid by Maria Lewis – Prologue
Who’s Afraid by Maria Lewis follows the story of Tommi, a young woman who has recently lost her mother and violently discovers her birthright as the world’s most powerful werewolf. The beginning of a new series is full of characters you will come to love.
This book was another birthday present this year from my sister. Compared to After She’s Gone by Lisa Jackson, this book liked right up my alley. The front cover, to me, screamed supernatural badassery and I couldn’t wait to dive in.
The story is a smooth flowing and a very quick and easy read. The main character Tommi kept me interested from the very first pages and the more I learned about her the more I wanted to follow her. She is a unique character who is hard to forget with her bright blue hair and her strong will.
The overall story kept me waiting for what would happen next and anticipation was building up inside. I kept guessing when certain things would happen, since I like predicting how a story will go, but was completely surprised when I got it wrong. And the way the story ended shocked me completely, I didn’t at all expect it to end up like that.
There wasn’t really anything in the story that disappointed me, nothing I can complain about. It was a fun and interesting read that made me want more when it ended. Anyone who loves a good paranormal, or shifter, action packed romance story is in for a treat when they read this.
The sequel is due for released on the 17 January, 2017.
