Blog Tour- Thornhill by Kathleen Peacock

Rockstar Book Tours

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.

Buy the book at: Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Add it on Goodreads.

So apparently I never reviewed Hemlock, even though I absolutely adored it. When I signed up for this blog tour, there was a question asking for the link to a Hemlock review. I spent half an hour trying to find one; for some reason, I never got around to writing one. How weird is that? But I really loved the first book and have been eagerly awaiting this second one. It does not disappoint.

The action picks up pretty much shortly after Hemlock ends. With the way it ends, it makes sense. I loved coming back into this world and these characters and Peacock does a great job of recapping the events of the first book without it seeming out of place. Mac is a strong main character and I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole journey. A lot happens in this book and it's very suspenseful. There's some interesting twists and turns, and luckily, there isn't a cliffhanger with this book like there was with the first. The adventure is over for now but I'm sure the third book has some fantastic surprises coming.

Overall, a wonderful, unique series about werewolves continues on a great path. I highly recommend this book and its prequel, and I cannot wait for the final book!

Kathleen Peacock spent her teen years crushing on authors and writing short stories about vampires. She put her writing dreams on hold while attending college, but tripped over them when office life started leaving her with an allergy to cubicles. Her debut, HEMLOCK was published by Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of Harper Collins, with the sequel Thornhill out now, and was published in the UK under the title DEADLY HEMLOCK from Simon and Schuster Children’s Books.
