In high school, required reading was The Picture of Dorian Gray. The original book read slow to me and I wanted to try this book out because while the original was slow, the concept was a neat idea. Plus, this one promised a werewolf and for me a bit of fantasy makes life a little better....
However, the book really didn't deliver for me in a way I hoped. This book also was a slow go for me. While it was under 5 hours long, it was not a book that truly kept my attention to be able to finish it in one day. It actually spread out of many days because I would listen for an hour or so and feel mind wondering to other things.
The characters were well developed, maybe too much so. The book spent so much time on character development that by the time the story truly progressed and was getting interesting, it was over. Honestly, while this is a series, I make no plans to get the next one.
If a person really likes the original Dorian Gray book, I think this would be perfect for him/her. If If it wasn't appreciated, I don't recommend the book.

I'm giving this story a 3.7 and bringing up to 4. The storyline moved along nicely and my interest was kept overall. We have a bit of mystery, romance and even a bit of darkness through which I enjoyed. The way Dorian started out and then seeing him progress further along the path of the murderous warewolf was written seamlessly. I found it to be a pleasant read for a paranormal story. I would like more about Sage, I've grown fond of her. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.
