    When Valerie learns that her sister has been killed by a werewolf, she finds herself at the center of a dark mystery, one that has plagued her village for generations. It is revealed that the werewolf lives among them, and everyone in the village immediately becomes a suspect. Could her secret love, Peter, be behind the attacks on her town? Is it her betrothed, Henry? Or someone even closer to her?

    Overall

    This audio book caught my eye because I had been meaning to watch the movie as it had recently come out in theaters. As I listened to the intro, I was imparted with a joyful curiosity upon discovering that the movie was not based on the book, and the book was not even based on the movie, rather they had been a joint effort.
    I listened to the first twenty minutes or so of it as I went to bed last night, was delighted with the plot unraveling before me, but I had simply planned to finish the book in this fashion over the next two weeks or so (just listening to bits here and there). This plan did not follow through as when a woke up this morning and listened some more and the morning passed away. By mid-afternoon, I had finished the book

    Having thoroughly enjoyed the story, I am going to get my mom to listen to it (and possibly my brothers) and then we are going to go see a movie together.

    Overall I would totally recommend this audio-book (I really enjoyed the reader). However I must say one should be careful in sharing the story with a younger audience, keeping in mind that the movie is pg13 and considered a horror film, there are many gruesome depictions of slaughter. But this does not mean the book is as pointless a thrill as many horror stories, underlying themes of doubt, love, community, and grief spiral through the tale.
