Katelyn had her whole life ahead of her, she had her dreams and she was determine to go after her dreams but one earthquake changes everything for Katelyn, now she's in the middle of nowhere "Wolf Springs", Arkansas.

Her grandfather had two rules . . . 

 "Don't go out after dark." . . .

"Don't go into the woods"  . . .

What dangers lurks in the woods of Wolf Springs?

Katelyn is about to change the dynamics of Wolf Springs, but what if those dynamics could cost her life. 

I give this 4 Cat's Tails Up, it was just enough for me to remember what happen in Unleashed without having to reread it. Katelyn's strange attack will cause havoc in Wolf Springs, the only option she has is by following the rules.

MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW
Okay so I have read Unleashed before but I also listed it as a re-read because I just wasn't in that "mode" of reading or reviewing so I aside it aside. Well the past couple days I skim the book and oddly enough remember some parts to it without actually having to re-read the book all over again.

So I was a little confuse on the whole Cirque-du-Soleil, it didn't fit other than that what's Katelyn's dream was before a huge earthquake took her mother's life. So now she is transported to Wolf Springs, Arkansas where her grandfather lives.

So now Katelyn must adjusted to her new living arrangements, but she plans to get the hell out of dodge when she turns 18 and head back to Sunny sunshine California. Although life isn't too bad at Wolf Springs except for the death of a teenage girl that was killed in the woods.

 "Don't go out after dark." Grandfather a.k. Ed says . . .

"Don't go into the woods" Grandfather a.k.a Ed says . . .

This is really uncharted territory for Katelyn because she never had to deal with this types or problems that Wolf Springs was having. Katelyn's first day of school she got paired up with Cordelia for a project, the two instantly becomes friends.

What I like about Cordelia was how sweet she was and so warm welcoming to Katelyn when she first arrives but it was also that innocence that she has even when there's a reason why Cordelia should be wary of who she becomes friends with and who she brings home.

The other character that Katelyn meets is Trick or "Valdmir" and I could already tell those drives back and forth to school and to her grandfather's house that Trick began to develop a crush on Katelyn. But for awhile Trick was only seen as a friend to Katelyn, even though her outburst of a passion kiss might say otherwise.

So what happens? Well another girl dies and then Katelyn was nearly the next victim but she was a victim of a wolf attack. A wolf with blue eyes and all hell is about to break loose.

What made Katelyn's attack different from the others? The fact was . . . she survived and now things will change for Katelyn.
