YA Book Review: Wolf's Curse by Kelley Armstrong

Wolf's Curse
Author: Kelley Armstrong
Series: Otherworld: Kate and Logan Book 2
Publication: Self-Published, March 19, 2020

Description: For Kate and Logan Danvers, sixteen-year-old twins of the werewolf Alpha, nothing could ruin a summer faster than the words “supernatural teen leadership conference.” They expected a boring week of earnest political discussions and team-building exercises. Instead, in Wolf’s Bane, they got a crash-course in real-life leadership, when the camp imploded and the twins and their new friends fled into the West Virginia forest.

Now, in Wolf’s Curse, the group has taken refuge in a magically warded cabin only to discover that they might have been safer taking their chances with the demon outside. Trapped in a dark witch’s sanctuary, surrounded by hell hounds, the twins will need to hone their leader and team building skills fast. There are battles to be waged and mysteries to be solved. Friendships to be forged in conflict and lost in betrayal. Even romances spark to life amid the turmoil.

It might not be the way Kate and Logan expected to spend their week, but it will certainly be a summer camp to remember.

My Thoughts: The book is the sequel to WOLF'S BANE and begins with Logan and Kate stuck in a cabin surrounded by hellhounds. It is filled with adventure and smart, snarky teen dialog.

The book's fast-paced action reminds this reader of a teen horror movie which isn't lost on the characters in the story. They discover allies and uncover enemies as they try to get away and call for help from some - any - responsible adults while building relationships of their own.

I enjoyed that the story switched between Kate's and Logan's points of view. I liked that they were very different people with very different problems but were still trying to be strong supports for each other. The various supernatural characters made a very interesting story.

Favorite Quote:
"This is why no one should split up," Elijah says. "Ever. Horror movies work so hard to teach us the rules, and do we learn? Nope. The first thing the teens do is split up, and then they spend the rest of the movie chasing each other to really, really bad places."

"Where they are slowly picked off, one by one."

"Which is why, being slightly smarter, we have split up in pairs."
I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
