curits-klause It’s only the top female who mates with the victor. One day, a loup-garoux named Axel lost control, killed a human girl, and was witnessed changing back from wolf form to human.
Klause writes with vivid imagery, beautiful passion, and makes werewolves come to life in a surprisingly sensual way. You cared so much for your mother, you risked your life for hers. Initally I had this as four starsbut I just keeep thinking about it even when I’m reading something else.
We should be so lucky as to have young girls read and want to cutris-klause Vivian. There is the stuff I said above and ahnette fact that he acts totally patronizing, sexist and idiotic, but here it is portrayed as sexy, I guess.
Other than that, a fun read. It’s full of misused adverbs and adjectives, and the stupidest metaphors you’ll ever read. The pack’s healer manages to get the bullet out of Vivian, but she ends up stuck in her hybrid form, neither human nor wolf and unable to fully change into either one.
Are we to believe that her jealous acts totally in character considered how the werewolves were portrayed were due to her desire to protect? This was about as realistic as there being any sort of real justice in the world. In the film Gabriel is the main antagonist who delights in directing his pack to ritualistically hunt down and kill humans every full moon – he orders Aiden to be hunted by the pack for having a relationship with Vivian.
After rescuing Aiden from being hunted by the pack they take off to hide, heal Vivian from the silver poison and escape the city as well as the pack and start a life together elsewhere. The thing is, during my second read, I realized I quite liked that Annette Curtis Klaus allowed her main character to suffer, struggle.

Then the good part comes when your sixteen year old self is fated to match said young specimen who still manages to be six years older than your sixteen year old self. Annetye characters are portrayed as older than the novel versions, Vivian and Aiden are scaled up to be 19 years old and Gabriel is portrayed to be in his late 30’s. I forced myself to finish curtus-klause because I wanted to write cirtis-klause review.

SFBook is entirely funded by Ant including hosting, development and any other costs. She is angry and upset, and her emotions get the better hlood her. Also, we get a lot of weird relationships in this book. I think it’s the instinct of xurtis-klause modern teen to go for the ill-fated romances blod I believe she deserved a man, not a boy.
In fact, she reacts in a downright scary manner. When she gives in and slinks back to the ranks, even the other females growl at her to show their disapproval.
This had so much potential. Someone in the pack has a taste for human meat and this has gotten the pack chased from New Orleans to West Virginia to Maryland. Gabriel What a dick!
