Blog Tour: Unleashed by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie + GIVEAWAY!!

Wolf Springs Chronicles: Unleashed by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie 5 of 5 stars.

Katelyn McBride's life changed in an instant when her mother died. Uprooted from her California home, Katelyn was shipped to the middle of nowhere, Arkansas, to her only living relative, her grandfather. And now she has to start over in Wolf Springs, a tiny village in the Ozark Mountains.

Like any small town, Wolf Springs has secrets. But the secrets hidden here are more sinister than Katelyn could ever imagine. It's a town with a history that reaches back centuries, spans continents, and conceals terrifying truths.

And Katelyn McBride is about to change everything.

Broken families, ageless grudges, forced alliances, and love that blooms in the darkest night--welcome to Wolf Springs. (Book Blurb)

Katelyn wants to fly. Her dreams of becoming a performing in the Cirque Du Soleil are crushed when her ballerina mother is killed in a housefire, and Katelyn is sent to live with the grandfather  who has kept his distance from her since the tragic shooting death of her father. 

Miserable with no way to train for the life she wants to create and grieving still for both of her parents, Katelyn must find a way to kep herself going in this frightening new world that she cannot seem to make herself understand. Someone in this small Victorianesque village is hiding something; something deadly.

Heart-wrenching loss, terrible lies, and firey passion. Unleashed is a romance and a thriller. A perfect combination of horror, suspense, and humor. The writing is that wonderful down-to-earth style I've come to associate with Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie, and the plot is wonderfully paced and surprising. 

I adored the main character, Katelyn, because of her personality and the way she thinks. She was as well-rounded a character as you could hope to find. I couldn't help but think that she's not exactly the type of girl whose going to stand up for herself in every situation even if she is a fighter. That does fit the story pretty nicely, though. 

On the other hand, Katelyn's friend Cordelia is temperamental and not afraid of anything--excluding her family. At the same time I couldn't completely like Cordelia. It's not that she's not a well thought out character, but that she just isn't a likeable character. Though she is sympathetic.

And as far as our heroes go in this story... I'm rooting for grandpa! haha While I like Trick, I feel like he's hiding something, and Justin kind of gives me the creeps...

Overall, Unleashed is a remarkable edge of your seat first installment to a series that I have a feeling will be wonderful. But I must warn you-- the ending is so abrupt it will leave your reeling for days after you finish it.
