BOOK HOARDER’S SELECTION, is a feature of Reading In Winter, which will feature one book from my collection that I plan to read in the coming week. These are NOT review books, but books I’ve purchased or have been gifted, which have been neglected for a long time.
TITLE: Hemlock (Hemlock, #1)
AUTHOR: Kathleen Peacock
HOW LONG I’VE HAD IT: Since October 2012 — won a signed copy from Giselle over at Xpresso Reads!
WHY I’M READING IT: I actually didn’t realize until I wrote this post how long I’ve had this book! I saw the sequel being posted around the blogosphere late last year and thought this book had JUST come out, but I guess I was wrong. Anyway, it has to do with WEREWOLVES, which is awesome AND the author is Canadian. Plus, I’ve heard really awesome things about it, so I really can’t wait to see what all the fuss is about! It’s bound to be great. 🙂
Fans of Maggie Stiefvater and the hit television show True Blood will flock to this first book in the supernatural mystery series set in a town where werewolves live in plain sight.
Mackenzie Dobson’s life has been turned upside down since she vowed to hunt her best friend Amy’s killer: a white werewolf. Lupine syndrome—also known as the werewolf virus—is on the rise across the country, and bloodlust is not easy to control. But it soon becomes clear that dangerous secrets are lurking in the shadows of Hemlock, Mac’s hometown—and she is thrown into a maelstrom of violence and betrayal that puts her in grave danger.
Kathleen Peacock’s thrilling debut novel provides readers with a mystery that Kimberly Derting, author of The Body Finder, calls “clever and frightening,” while Sophie Jordan, New York Times bestselling author of Firelight, raves: “Forget every werewolf book you’ve ever read. This one breaks the mold.”
