I loved Shiver Cove, Tamyra!
I know I haven't read all of the werewolf books out there...there are tonnes, but I out of all the ones that I have read, I felt that Shiver Cove was incredibly unique.
Now characters. I really liked the main character Tamyra. I have an irregular spelled name, so I love it when characters have names that are spelled differently too, it automatically makes me like them a little bit more. Second, she was so shy at the beginning. I can also relate to that!
By the end of the book I thought she was an admirable character and I really liked her.
Sal...oh that mysterious sexy Sal. Did I mention mysterious, well he was, very. I absolutely loved him. He was kind of sketchy at times, but I couldn't help being drawn to him...probably because Tamyra couldn't either.
The story itself was awesome! It totally made me remember the one time I was stuck being the new girl and how hard it was. I loved that it was a realistic story even though becoming a werewolf might not be that believable if it really happened. I didn't know that there was going to be a sequel until I went onto the Shiver Cove website and saw it on there, and boy was I relieved. Shiver Cove ends in a way that will surely have you anxious for more!
I would recommend Shiver Cove to all paranormal fans, especially ones partial to werewolves, and I'd also recommend it to someone who wants to read a paranormal but doesn't know where to start. This would be a fantastic book to read if you've never read anything paranormal before, and it's good for those of us who read it like crazy too.
