On Fire!

For fans of this truly fantastic television series shown on MTV, this book (and hopefully a series of books) are a great addition! Not to mention the fact that Nancy Holder, one of the most amazing writers in fiction who is responsible for the bestselling Wicked series, is the author – which makes this story a whole lot of fun to read.

 

For anyone who has not yet tuned in to the series (which you should as fast as possible), this is a story about a young man by the name of Scott McCall- a lacrosse player, a quiet sort with a best friend who is absolutely hysterical, and a boy who was bitten by a werewolf. This ‘Alpha’ who changed his life won’t give up on Scott, wanting to take him into the pack and make him one of them. But Scott is desperate to try and hold on to who he is and what he wants – including his teen love, Allison. Allison’s family are werewolf hunters. (Talk about picking the wrong girlfriend when you’re a wolf); Derek is another Beta, like Scott, who is out for vengeance, and he wants nothing more than to track down this Alpha that has changed them both because he’s seeking revenge for his sister’s death.

 

In this story we begin with Allison’s birthday. She and Scott decide to skip school to celebrate together and have been found out. In addition, a dead body has also been found. Yet another in a long line of vicious attacks in Beacon Hills that has been blamed on a mountain lion. (Even though Scott knows that the Alpha is the real killer).

 

One evening Lydia (Allison’s best friend) tells Allison that her boyfriend Jackson has up and disappeared. She can’t reach him on the cell and no one seems to know where he went. Begging Allison for her help, she and Scott go on the hunt to look for Jackson. Scott is beyond scared that the star lacrosse player has met up with the same fate as the rest of the Alpha’s prey, but while searching, Allison and Scott not only find even more romance with one another, but as they hunt the woods for Jackson, they soon come across a truly beautiful silver wolf that basically just sits and stares at them before walking away. A picture of things to come? A new wolf in the forest ready to help…or, harm?

 

Again this is a great plotline that is far different than the multitude of werewolf books and movies that have been tossed into reader’s laps over the past decade. In fact, the MTV show is extremely well-acted and well-written, so it is NO surprise that this book is a whole lot of fun, as well.

 

Until Next Time, Everybody,

Amy
