Sixteen-year-old Winston Winters is awaiting the inevitable.

Stuck at a remote Vermont boarding school in the wake of unimaginable tragedy, Win knows it’s only a matter of time until he transforms into something dark, something wolfish, just like his father. Until he hurts people too. So in order to do the least amount of harm to those around him, he masters the art of shutting others out.

But meeting fellow cross-country runner Jordan Herrera thwarts Win's plans for emotional isolation. A scholarship student with secrets of her own, Jordan’s boldness and wit draw him in. And when she asks Win to accompany her to an all-night party in the deep New England woods, he’s torn. Because he’s not sure they should get any closer. He’s not sure Jordan will be safe with him. But she insists. And he goes.

Win wants to believe he’s not dangerous. That he would never hurt someone he cares for. But as he leads Jordan into the wilderness with his father’s blood running through his veins and wild wolves running through his fragile mind, Win knows this is simply not true…
In all honesty I am not one for werewolf novels, I am more of a vampire girl. I don't know why, maybe I'm attracted to the undead more (*swoon*) but sometimes I feel that werewolf YA don't have the same consistency as the Vampires. Or its just me! Haha! Anyways, since starting the The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater this one somewhat resembles the structure of the novel. I'm looking forward to this one as it will contribute to one of my challenges of 2013 and also I'm starting to experience more male POVs.
