Deadly Thorns - Book Review

Thornhill/Deadly Thorns (Hemlock #2)
by Kathleen Peacock

What is it about:
Mac can’t lose another friend. Even if he doesn’t want to be found.

The ripple effect caused by Mac’s best friend Amy’s murder has driven Mac’s new love, Kyle, to leave Hemlock and disappear from her life forever. But Mac knows that Kyle plans to enroll in a rehabilitation camp, where he can live with other werewolves. She refuses to accept his decision, especially since the camps are rumored to be tortuous. So she sets out in search of Kyle with a barely sober Jason—and Amy’s all-seeing ghost—in tow.

Clues lead Mac to find Kyle in a werewolf den in Colorado—but their reunion is cut short by a Tracker raid. Now Mac and Kyle are trapped inside the electric fences of Thornhill, a camp for young werewolves. As she devises an escape plan, Mac uncovers dangerous secrets buried within the walls of Thornhill—and realizes that the risk to the people she loves is greater than ever before.

What did I think of it:
Once again a book with a UK and a US title. My book is the UK version.

I really loved the first book in this series, so I preordered this book. Still it ended up an orphan somehow. When I finally picked it up I was pulled into the story from the start though. This is a very cool read.

Mac is a character you can root for. She learned to be wary and cautious the hard way. Still she has a big heart and that is what gets her into trouble. I also love Mac's friend Serena. She's quirky and fun and a real friend. I wasn't too fond of the guys. I missed Serena's brother in this book, my favorite male character from book one.

There's lots of things going on and I like how Peacock continued to explore human nature as she did in Deadly Hemlock. The intrigue and action kept me engrossed and I had a hard time putting the book down.

The ending left me hungry for more and I will most certainly get my trotters on the next book when it releases.

Why should you read it:
It's a suspenseful Paranormal YA read.
