Books With Bite

My name is Savannah and I’m the founder Books With Bite.  Books have always found a way to my heart with great literature and adventure. Though I may not be a teen, I wish I could be!


Unleashed - Kristopher Reisz This book took me a while to read mostly because it disturbed me. By that I mean, it has waayy to much drugs, sex, and foul language for a YA book. While the plot and writing was good, it was not my cup of tea.Everybody knows Daniel Morning is a star. He always has been. What they don't know is how restless he feels, how he hates always living up to other people's expectations. The urge to break free is beginning to gnaw at his insides.Then Daniel meets Misty. She's smoky and tender, and she lives by her own rules. She lets him into her pack of outcasts, and in on their little secret: They have learned to shape shift and have been prowling then night as wolves.Daniel falls hard for this intoxicating life of raw abandon, and he falls hard for Misty. The freedom to follow his most basic instincts is like nothing he's ever felt. But Daniel is about to find out that such freedom comes at a price...."The book starts off with Daniel and his friends. Daniel is the "shooting star." He rules the school. Typical jock with a good head on his shoulders. Then he meets Misty. He is intrigued by her and wants to know her more. I find that Daniel's character is really, I mean really indecisive. At times, I wanted to slap him across the head for him to make a decision already. Daniel wants to bad, then good, bad, then good. And while he is trying to make up his mind, he hurts other people in the process. IE, His parents, loses his girlfriend, he's friends, etc.They shift into wolves by eating mushrooms they find at an abandon plant. (Yes, I know. I thought that maybe they weren't really turning into wolves, they are just tripping really badly.) But indeed this mushroom allowed them to change. They go through typical teenage problems. Daniel had a good life, while Misty was raised in a rough one. They fight and rumble amongst other stuff.In the end, Daniel saves the day yet again. He rushes to find the pack and stops them from making a really bad mistake.Kristopher Reisz wrote a good book. Although I think the book might have been just as interesting without all the other junk. Nonetheless, this book had a different storyline then most werewolve books. I wouldn't recommend it for any young reader to read this.
