“It was like my wolf had been there all along, waiting for me to tap its hand and step into the ring…”
Tommi Grayson’s never exactly been a normal girl. Bright blue hair, a mysterious past and barely controlled rage issues have a way of making a woman stand out. Yet she’s never come close to guessing who she really is.
When her mother dies, a shattered Tommi decides to track down her estranged father. Leaving Scotland for a remote corner of New Zealand, she discovers the truth of her heritage – and it’s a whole lot more than merely human.
Barely escaping with her life, now Tommi must return to her her friends, pretending everything is normal, while all too aware of the dangers lurking outside – and within. Worse still, something has followed her home…
Gripping, fast-paced, and completely unexpected, Who’s Afraid has more twists than a tornado. I loved this story!’
– Darynda Jones,
New York Times bestselling author of the Charley Davidson series
If there’s something you can rely on it’s the opinion of a bestselling author of Darynda Jones caliber: if she loved this exciting debut novel, chances are so will you, especially if you like your paranormal/urban fantasy with a healthy dose of mystery and romance, a kick-ass heroine with Brutal Blue hair who discovers a dise to herself she didn’t know about, and a dude who fights with swords.
Who’s Afraid could be mistaken for a New Adult book tackling heavy thematics such as illness, sexual assault, and violence in general, if not for the fact that the main character happens to be a werewolf in making and her love interest (that’s a minor non-spoiler) is immortal.
Well-written, fast-paced and tragically dramatic. Looking forward to the next installment!
