    "Good story but sad at the same time. This book teaches a great lesson, there's more to life than just being pretty. Based on the reviews, many people felt that there should be a part 2 because of the way it ended."

    "The Wolves of Mercy Falls brought me to safe place because I love stories involving wolves. I think this one is okay and has some nice moments where Maggie the main character explores her surroundings well. I think it doesn't go too far into character development and I would've loved that more. Overall, it's an average read and I hope to see more in the next book in this series. "

    "Good book for those getting into YA series. It follows typical plots and can seem a bit predictable. It is a good read regardless."

    "This is a mindless tale of vampire regency that seems to play off of the Twilight, True Blood, and Vampire Diaries craze of the late '00s. Steering children away from literary fiction and into the realm of fantasy, there are much better adventures to be had than this mess, most of them containing the kind of romance and action that hormonal teenagers crave. Steer clear."
