Release Date: September 10, 2013
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Age Group: Young Adult
Summary: Mac can’t lose another friend. Even if he doesn’t want to be found.
The ripple effect caused by Mac’s best friend Amy’s murder has driven Mac’s new love, Kyle, to leave Hemlock and disappear from her life forever. But Mac knows that Kyle plans to enroll in a rehabilitation camp, where he can live with other werewolves. She refuses to accept his decision, especially since the camps are rumored to be tortuous. So she sets out in search of Kyle with a barely sober Jason—and Amy’s all-seeing ghost—in tow.
Clues lead Mac to find Kyle in a werewolf den in Colorado—but their reunion is cut short by a Tracker raid. Now Mac and Kyle are trapped inside the electric fences of Thornhill, a camp for young werewolves. As she devises an escape plan, Mac uncovers dangerous secrets buried within the walls of Thornhill—and realizes that the risk to the people she loves is greater than ever before.
My Thoughts: I liked Hemlock but I didn’t outright love it. With Thornhill, I liked it even better. I guess because we jump right into the storyline and we already know who the characters are.
We are back with Mac who is a human. This time she is in her father’s presence but not for long. Mac and her friends get captured and sent to a werewolf rehabilitation camp. I love how Mac plays the werewolf so well. She fools plenty of people instead thinking she’s one of them. I also loved that we are back with Jason and Kyle. I just love both boys a little bit and I have a hard time figuring out who I like more.
I think the best part of this one was the characters once again. They made me laugh but they also were very likable. I also really did like the plot and seeing how things went down.
I can’t wait to read the third and final book in the series! Hopefully soon.
Overall: I’m still really torn between Jason and Kyle. I want to like Kyle and I want Mac with him but part of me also likes the Jason aspect and what he brings to the mix. I really liked this one.
Cover: I like it! It’s cute! Love how she is just standing there!
