If you do not know already I am a huge Teen Wolf fan! More or less I am obsessed with all of the actors/actresses that are on Teen Wolf. I saw this book on sale online and figured why not. I have never really read fan fiction or media tie ins so I thought I would give it a shot!
For those of you who have watched the show this book start the night of the parent teacher conference when there is a believed “mountain lion” running through the parking lot. The book lays out the story of events that basically take place within a day time span. It also contains flashbacks from years earlier and such. Although this is written based off the tv show there are many differences and loads of information that is presented that contradicts the television show or just never explained. So this is definitely a book to give another idea of what could have happened with a flushed out storyline for a single day making/explaining more than the tv show does (which is why I would consider it fan fiction).
I did not know what to expect going into the book, but I did find it interesting. It is not exactly like the show, but laid out a story with some great ideas of how everything fell together and some great explanations of how some events or issues happened/could happen since the show is all about those plot holes. It was interesting to see what someone else put together and their take on this one day in the Teen Wolf world. It definitely fit into the trashy/guilty read romance category. There was even some sexy times between the werewolves (as full out werewolves) which I found a little strange. Overall it was a quick read that was enjoyable to read, but had some flaws and is not for everyone!
