My Rating of this Book – 3 out of 5 Stars
Unleashed was one werewolf based novel that didn’t exactly have me rolling over with excitement. Actually, most of the time I was belly up with boredom. *If you pardon the dog puns.* Truthfully, the plotline is every slow moving and is mostly laden with the drama and sorrow surrounding the character Katelyn. The first several chapters were especially hard to push through. I almost divorced the novel, until the first murder finally took place.
It really was the mystery and the wolf attacks that persuaded me to sit and stay with the novel. I wanted to learn more and solve the case. But it was a jumbled mess in some ways. There were several possible links and suspects, yet most of the time Katelyn focused on clues that were either dead ends or clues that left the reader hanging.
However, it did have a thrilling ending, one that actually left me begging for more. So we’ll see how the second book fares out.
