Werelove: Dusk Conspiracy

Lakisha Spletzer

Laylah Le Croix has everything and nothing. After an attempted kidnapping, she is rescued by Donil. Angry at her life, she makes a defiant choice that plunges her into the heart of a conspiracy.

My Take:

At this particular moment, popular culture is completely awash in paranormal excitement.  Right now vampires are all the rage, but thanks to Taylor Lautner from Twilight, the werewolf is becoming the trendy mystical creature.  I enjoyed Werelove: Dusk Conspiracy because it was a fresh spin on this new werewolf craze.  Honestly, I'd say the book was definitely more futuristic sci fi than paranormal.  All in all I think this book was a worthy effort.  All aspects were pretty good.  The pacing, the characters and the plot were pretty good.  I can't really rave about the book because I wasn't sucked in wanting to devour it, and I can't bag on it either because honestly, there weren't really any specific things I disliked.  I did particularly like the main character, Laylah.  She was extraordinarily meek due to her sheltered upbringing.  I always love when the wimpy person stands up in the end and gets things done.  Laylah had some really neat character development that I really related to.  I grew up a quiet shy bookworm, but when I needed to defend someone I loved, I'd step up to the plate, as most people do.  Overall the book wasn't bad, worth a read but won't rock your world.  I'm caught between a 3 and a 4, but I think I've got to go with a 4, Borrow from a Friend.

Do you agree with my review?  Do you think I'm totally off base?  Either way I'd love to hear from you, be sure to leave a comment and tell me how you feel!

If this book were a movie it would likely be rated PG-13 for some language and violence
