This book kept me on my toes. I could barely resist the urge to turn form page to page in my struggle to chew quickly what Evie would be doing next. The suspense in the book got my adrenaline rushing even after months of not opening my Kindle. I LOVED IT!

Certainly Jamie Campbell is now a must read for me. You can get the book free on Amazon.

The realization that I was just as hairy as a bear, scared the heck out me.  My new blue-green eyes gazed at my new extremely hairy eye-brow… What was I? What had I become? This was not me…
