my new favorite book of the year! Amazing! I love the character Rosa which I understood, love the setting (Italy) finally shape shifters that are not wolves!
I also love the fact that the main character's sister is a a lesbian and hate the fact the the girlfriend dies. i know that somehow the villains are always loved, but not in this case. These villains, I hate so much, that I want to punch them in their faces!
That's how strong the book is and the characters are so believable!
The cover is also so spectacular

very queer/ different. not sure how to feel about this book actually. I must admit, Meyer's style is definitely unique. Rosa has character-- and attitude. This main protagonist isn't your ordinary girly person; she has encountered the darker sides of life, being associated with a family that harbors dark secrets, and experienced loss herself. Of course, she isn't perfect; she has her weaknesses, which makes her inner strength and resilience stand out the more. This book is refreshing; recommended if you want to take a break from the usual. Does not have predictable plotlines. Enjoy!
