    A great read for teenagers and young adults! It combines everything yong readers love: black magic, mysteries, wild wolves, giant castles, hatred and love, the latter one conquering everything else, of course. I’ve simply "devoured" the book in just 2 evenings. It’s exciting, full of unpredictable twists and secrets. The characters are well-developed and act reasonably, or unreasonably, depending on the situation, which adds to the unpredictability of the plot. The ending of the book is elegant and really sweet. I’d definately read a sequel if there ever was one.
