Description

All Sophie ever wanted was a way out. Only a few weeks ago, she was a quiet art student with an overbearing mother and no higher dream than starting university and reuniting with her BFF, but destiny intervenes in the form of a fox bite.
If being attacked by a rabid animal isn’t freaky enough, her new town has secrets. People are dying, and Sophie feels she is being watched. Then there’s the arrogant and annoyingly sexy Sebastian with his plummy accent and come-to-bed eyes creeping her out. She should stay well away, but then he does live in the spooky manor house, and curiosity is her middle name.

    Not your same old paranormal. New approach to weres and vamps and told with a clear British accent that's droll and sometimes very humorous. I'm reading more of her work.

    Raquel's book is set in England and I had to look some things up to understand the slang. I've led a sheltered life in America. The book is awesome! It's action packed and didn't linger in the slow times. I can't wait to read the rest of the series written so far.

    This book was incredible. The romance, fear, ACTION! One of the best books I've ever read in my opinion. All I have to say is that some of it was a little predictable, but otherwise great.
  • Good idea but...

    Okay, I really tried hard to finish this book, but I just couldn't. The author had a really good idea but she needs to work on the delivery. So first, the pros. The story can captivate you initially and she had a great idea. Without that idea, no story can be written. Cons, the delivery. The story moved to fast, resulting in a lot of holes and missing details that are important to really understand and develop a connection with the characters. There lacked feeling, even if there was supposed to be romance. SPOILER ALERT: Sophie is supposed to be selfless and pure, which is why she was chosen by a goddess that turns into a fox. But, she is kind of a vindictive b*tch and mean. She is mean to Lara, who is a b*tch, and to Sebastian's grandmother. She does not even try to establish any type of relationship with his sister who is stuck between being human and werewolf. Sophie also goes out with Vincent when she thinks Sebastian cheated on her, knowing that he hates Vincent. There was very little emotions regarding Sebastian and Sophie's interactions regarding Sebastian possibly cheating on her. When she discovers that he was not cheating on her, bam, they have sex even though she's a virgin... You would think that emotions would be a bit more powerful, but nothing. I felt nada. It just didn't seem real. Also, whenever Sophie shows one of her powers, the other people's reactions we eh. When Sophie learns that she was not dreaming about being gifted with the fox goddess's power, she doesn't even ask any questions. I could go on and on. The bottom line, nothing about this seems real, not the characters, relationships or even interactions. I think if the author slows down in her telling of the story, writing the details needed to bring the story to life, she could eventually do really well as a writer. She seems to have good ideas but needs to work on her delivery of the story. Readers should not feel like it's a chore to get through a story. Don't rush. It's not a race to the finish.

    A subpar rendition of an overdone theme. Not worth the read for more experienced readers.
  • Fantastic!

    This book is amazing! I started reading it because it's the genre I tend to like, not really expecting that I would love it so much! The characters are captivating, and the plot is full of twists and turns to keep you guessing. Beware, once you get to the end of this book, you'll be frantic to find the second!
  • Amazing!!!
