Review: Unleashed by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie

Summary from Goodreads:
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.

W.O.W! This book is AMAZING! I spent so long waiting for it to arrive in the Library....and then it finally came in! 

I was immediately hooked with Katelyn's story and I really felt for her. She is so strong in situations and that's why I love her. Katelyn is definitely one of my favourite heroins! I love reading books with strong female characters and Katelyn is definitely one of them. She is unpredictable. When something happened I didn't know how Katelyn would react and that kept me reading. She is definitely on my top heroins list along with characters from the Night World series by L.J Smith.

Cordelia and the Fenner's
When we first meet Cordelia I didn't know what to think of her. She is mysterious and slightly twisted, but not in a bad way. She changes her mind ''like a girl changes clothes''. (yes I am aware that it is a Katie Perry song but its right for Cordelia.) The Fenner have to be the strangest fictional family that I have ever read about but that's why I kept reading, I wanted to find out why they were so strange. Even when we find out why Cordelia changes her mind so much and why the Fenner's are so strange I was still wary of them. Cordelia is sweet but she is so difficult to understand. She says something and you don't know how to take it. Justin. How do I describe Justin? Well hes brilliant! I completely understand Katelyn's reaction to him, I felt that way just reading about him! 

Trick and Katelyn's grandfather
I love Trick and I think that he just wants to protect Katelyn. How many guys would you find that are like that? Katelyn and Tricks 'relationship' kept me hooked and I couldn't stop reading! Katelyn's grandfather is a bit of a strange man to me. I felt the way Katelyn did towards him. He's nice and he just wants whats best for her and I'm glad that he was featured as often as he is. A lot of books feature the parents/guardians of the main character in about 5% of the book and it was nice to have him in for more than that.

I am so glad that the love triangle in this book was so real and believable. I could fully understand Katelyn's feelings about each boy. I myself wouldn't know which to pick!

I loved the ending. I think it ended amazingly! It kept me wanting more! I cant wait for the sequel!

This book is an amazing read and it kept me up all night. I can't wait for the next book as I want to see what happens to Katelyn and the rest of the characters.

The bad news just kept coming in Wolf Springs.
