the wolf had gone to Tarika, whose mouth was wide in wonder. Casa Medianoche's ironwood door was open. A small gray woman in a shapeless black dress squinted at them.

Cat swallowed. "Do now." "Good." Granny Lupe smiled. "Always know exactly how dangerous something is. Then you can do it better." Her gaze flicked back toward the house as she sighed. "That man."

This book tells the story of a young girl coming to awareness of her family history, her true nature, and her unique powers. The story is overall ok, very good in parts. I probably would have given 4 stars but the artificial teen dialog got to me after a while.

This is a good book, I enjoyed it a lot, the story, i think could have been a little deeper, and the end was predictable, but truth is i just really enjoyed reading it, and Cat was a great character, who you warm to very quickly. Download it, it's worth it!
