Unleashed by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie -- YA mini review

Unleashed by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie -- YA mini review

Katelyn McBride’s life changed in an instant when her mother died. Uprooted from her California home, Katelyn was shipped to the middle of nowhere, Arkansas, to her only living relative, her grandfather. And now she has to start over in Wolf Springs, a tiny village in the Ozark Mountains. Like any small town, Wolf Springs has secrets. But the secrets hidden here are more sinister than Katelyn could ever imagine. It’s a town with a history that reaches back centuries, spans continents, and conceals terrifying truths. And Katelyn McBride is about to change everything.

Broken families, ageless grudges, forced alliances, and love that blooms in the darkest night—welcome to Wolf Springs.

Stars? 2/5


It was forgettable.  I had to look up the blurb on Goodreads to find out the main character's name, she was that forgettable. She was also insipid, clueless, naive, easily swayed and seemed to forget everything that meant something to her.

I kept waiting for something interesting to happen. It didn't. At least not until the end of the book but it certainly wasn't the payoff I expected. Maybe the storyline will get more interesting in future books but this one wasn't intriguing enough for me to find out.
