"Werewolf Tale doesn't live up to Potential"

get the introverted Laura to live a little. At the party,
Dominick and David, who invite Laura and Tina to their
retreat. The society, The North American Lycanthropic
society, has a
secret initiation and they are mysterious about it.
Because Laura is
very attracted to Dominick, Tina easily convinces her to go
DARK SEDUCTION never quite lived up to its potential.
I found that
I couldn't relate to the characters, and the book's pacing
In the first place, neither Laura or Tina were too bright
to go off on a
retreat with a mysterious secret society, without
it and taking precautions, especially, since the members
practically strangers. Secondly, I couldn't understand why
continued to be mysterious. It seemed to me he kept his
secret way too
long. To top all of this off, I found much of the book
There were long descriptive paragraphs about Laura going
going white water rafting, etc. Nothing happened until
almost the end
of the book. That action toward the end was a bright spot
in the book.
The author's voice didn't resonate with me, but if you are
a fan of
werewolf books, you might want to try it anyway.
