Stoked Saturday

Stoked Saturday
Week 3 - 10 Arcs Received

Every week I get in a number of ARC copies for Review. These are titles you may or may not be familiar with already. To mark the end of the week, every Saturday I will have a post to spotlight the book or books I am most looking forward to reading of the copies I have received that week. 

Title: Hemlock
Author: Kathleen Peacock
To Be Published:  5/8/2012
Publisher Synopsis: 
Mackenzie and Amy were best friends. Until Amy was brutally murdered.

Since then, Mac’s life has been turned upside down. She is being haunted by Amy in her dreams, and an extremist group called the Trackers has come to Mac’s hometown of Hemlock to hunt down Amy’s killer: A white werewolf. 

Lupine syndrome—also known as the werewolf virus—is on the rise across the country. Many of the infected try to hide their symptoms, but bloodlust is not easy to control. 

Wanting desperately to put an end to her nightmares, Mac decides to investigate Amy’s murder herself. She discovers secrets lurking in the shadows of Hemlock, secrets about Amy’s boyfriend, Jason, her good pal Kyle, and especially her late best friend. Mac is thrown into a maelstrom of violence and betrayal that puts her life at risk. 

Kathleen Peacock’s thrilling novel is the first in the Hemlock trilogy, a spellbinding urban fantasy series filled with provocative questions about prejudice, trust, lies, and love. 

Why I'm Stoked:  
Sometimes a cover just has a way of jumping out and grabbing your attention. I absolutely love this one. This is the kind of cover that would make me grab the book off the shelf and read the inside flap. 

This book shows great promise and where can you go wrong when it comes to werewolf's? Well, don't answer that cause some authors have gone very wrong. But I think this one looks like it will be good and its already getting steady reviews on Goodreads. Can't wait to read it. 

Be on the lookout for my review in the next week or so.
