Fast-paced action and smart, stylish writing are the hallmarks of K.L. Nappier's speculative thrillers, mysteries and dark fiction. Some call her style eclectic, some call it cross-over. Moving between genres may keep her books out of the mainstream, but once you've discovered her, you'll understand what thousands of readers already know and why critics think she is one of the best authors writing independent fiction.
Since her emergence on the online scene, Kathy’s readership has grown exponentially. Her work has taken prizes and honors in the Dream Realm Awards, the Draco Awards, the EPPIES, the Kay Snow Awards and the New Century Awards among others.
Her novels have been reviewed by the Gothic Journal as “stunning” and “fresh” with suspense that “is razor sharp.” The Eternal Night Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Website calls her work “totally addictive.” Tampa Book Buzz says she “pulls you in from the first sentence” and DredTales.com calls her a “stand out in the world of independent fiction.”

For me, the book started out a tad bit slow, but after about 10-12% it picked up, gained momentum, and then the next thing I knew, I was holding on for dear life! The characters in this book touch you; they make you feel their pain, their fear, their hunger…If I had to pick one favorite character, I could not do it! From Doris-who always has to show control and never let her real emotions show to Max- who I went from dislike at the beginning of the book to compassion by the end; the characters will work their way under your skin and so will the situations they find themselves in.
Just to let other potential readers know-this is not one of those “Twilight” feel-good books where the werewolves start out as Indian Gods with bulging muscles and Adonis faces who turn into wolves that fight the bad guys and help save the day. In K.L’s story, the werewolves are the creatures of old that should be feared, not slept with! K.L.’s werewolves are the type that cause panic-induced praying, as the characters who encounter them know that their lives are about to end…painfully.
I also liked the “tension within tension” that Nappier created in her work. There are the problems that come from the Tulenar Internment camp and the anger that the reader feels about that whole situation; there is much tension between characters in the book that had me yelling one second and close to tears the next, and then the fear of the wolf itself and wondering what it will do next. This book brings about so many types of emotions and, to me, that is one of the signs of an awesome read and a talented author!
I don’t want to write too much as I will eventually give something away and I want everyone to GET THIS BOOK! You will not regret it! I give it 5-stars (more if I could!) and I have already downloaded the second book in this trilogy, “Bitten”. Grab this book-you won't be disappointed!!!
