Just your average boy-meets-girl, boy-kills-people story.
The Native American Navajo tribe has stories of a monster so wicked, so blood-thirsty, that they are to be hunted down and slaughtered. But are they just legends? Or is something sinister lurking in the shadows? The Yee Naaldlooshi—skinwalkers—have the ability to transform themselves. And they can be anyone. Anything.
The Hunters—a group dedicated to tracking the creatures—are hot on their trail and they won’t stop until every last one is dead. But are they all as evil as foretold? Seb, alpha of the Taylor, Arizona reservation pack, begins to question the acts of their kind. But he’s broken a rule and must choose between killing the girl he loves or risking everything to save her. Cassie must fight for her survival. The pack is after her. And they’re no joke. Cass is about to find out how sadistic they can be.
And then everything changed. There is just so much contradiction regarding skinwalkers that I couldn't keep up with what was going on. How can someone who is terrified of them at the beginning, blow them off like they're nothing over and over again? There's more along those lines, but I'm not getting into spoiler territory.
There are a couple moments of redemption, but they're quickly over.
I really wanted to like this one, and I tried. But there's just too much about it that took me out of the story and frustrated me.
Although this one ends on a cliffhanger, I have no interest in continuing.
