Synopsis: (from Goodreads)
Surviving agitated ghosts, irritated witches, angry werewolves, and the horrors of high school has never been so hard.
The night of Samhain may be behind them, but Yuki and her friends have only begun to face the challenges of their paranormal gifts. Tensions are rising--in the pack, at school, and within their tightly knit group of friends.
The tragic death of Wakefield High student Dylan Jacobs has emotions boiling over. The J-Team, Yuki's arch nemesis, have turned the entire football team against her. They claim that Yuki is a witch and blame her for the death of their fellow teammate. Will Yuki be able to solve the mystery of Dylan's death, and the legend of Witchtrot Road, before tempers flare and things turn violent?
Emma is the friend that Yuki turns to when things get tough, but she's been behaving strangely. Emma has been acting distant and seems to be coming down with a mysterious illness. What will Yuki and her friends do if their healer is truly sick?
Calvin has become Alpha and wants the best for his pack. He is a dedicated and compassionate leader willing to do anything for the good of his people, but will Cal be able to hold the pack together when a fiery, young werewolf comes seeking revenge?
Simon may still be a roguish playboy, but he is taking his role as Calvin's second in command deadly serious. Will Simon be able to focus on his pack duties when he is forced to face his dark, emotional past?
This was an enjoyable installment to the Spirit Guide series. Yuki, the main character, was super cute and funny as always. I also enjoy the side characters in these books, especially Emma and Cal, but even Simon was pretty great in this book.
I have a hard time writing a lot about these books without being spoiler-y because they’re not super long, but I always like reading them. The only thing I have a slight problem with is that the big issue of the novel usually seems to resolve itself quite easily. Not that the journey to get there is easy, but once they figure out what’s wrong or how to get the issue solved, it seems to get fixed “off-screen” so to speak.
Mostly, though, this is an interesting story that combines human problems with the supernatural. It was a fun and interesting read, and I think most paranormal fans would like these books, especially because Yuki’s narration is so light and fun, even when the group is going through some tough times.
Not my favourite of the series, but I love how it's relevant to the book.
