    "A fun little read if you're also into graphic novels and the Marvel Comics Universe, and who isn't, these days? I still like my comics more, but this is a fun read for fans of the genre"

    "At first you can say that this is just another teen book with werewolf, vampires but it is not. The main character Kylie Galen is mysterious enough to make you to read more about her. Definitely a different book from the others in its genre."

    "I liked that the main character had powers but this book wasn't written like an action hero story. Some of the dialogue was a bit childish, but the story itself was pleasing enough for me to order the next book in the series."
