My advice: Skip to the second book, 'Wolf's Cross'. It's a much better story.

The characters here are pretty standard. I liked Lillys innocence and confusion but it can get annoying pretty fast. Uldolf is as bland as they come, even with his tragic backstory, as Swann strives to make him a near flawless love interest for Lilly. The characters who belong to the Order blend into each other; I often had to flip back to remind myself of who was whom. My favorite characters were Uldolfs family because the daughter was so amusing and the parents very sweet.

The concept of werewolves was very interesting. I liked the idea of duel personalities going on in Lillys head and so was slightly disappointed to realize that that was just because of her injury. I really enjoyed the training scenes between Lilly and her masters; I would have preferred more focus on her time with the religious order than on the obvious romance.

The romance between the two leads is just as forced and cliché as the summary makes it sound. I think I would have enjoyed a relationship between them if a romance had not been forced. Couldnt they just be friends? Or what if, when all was revealed, he didnt want to be with her, knowing what she was and her bloody history with her masters? That I may have actually enjoyed, instead of a romance Ive seen a thousand times.

The only positive thing I can say with any enthusiasm is that the climax, though predictable, is fast-paced and full of action. The last thirty or so pages of the book were the best part and kept me hooked until the epilogue, where it once again went downhill.

It's not necessary to read these books in order so just skip this one and read 'Wolf's Cross'. You won't be missing much.
