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.


Now I remember why I feel in love with this series. It’s breathtaking, addictive and filled with anticipation. I have read HEMLOCK back in 2013 and never got around to reading the other two books in series. I ended up re-reading so I can read the next two books in the series. From moment that I started THORNHILL I couldn’t pull myself away from the story. I loved HEMLOCK but I fell in love with series more once I started the 2nd book. I am not sure if it was me, but to me I felt that there were a lot more going on in THORNHILL more action and more mystery surrounded the story. There wasn’t a moment through the book where you didn’t find yourself wondering what was going to happen, if they were going to be able to escape from Thornhill. Every page, every chapter had you on edge of seat. There were few times that I had trouble putting down the book, I wanted to see what would happen next. At times, one more chapter turned to four hours of reading.

Kyle and Mac, I loved the two of them in the first book and that haven’t changed now. I just wished that he wouldn’t push her away even if I understand why he does. I am aware that Kyle is trying to protect Mac, but from what I read I know that Mac is type of person that can take care of herself. It’s impossible not to see how in love she is with Kyle. He left, but that didn’t stop her from coming after with him. Mac even went as far as to swap blood samples once at Thornhill, just so she wouldn’t leave Kyle behind. It’s hard not to like Mac, she’s strong, she’s determined. I loved how no matter what obstacles she and her friends had to overcome, she was determined to rescue Serena, to get everyone out of Thornhill out. Not once did she give up. Mac is type of person that I would love to have as friend. A devoted friend.

I think that Mac’s father, Hank surprised me most of all. He was the last person that I though would come to her rescue, again. That got me to think that maybe he cared for her more than Mac realized. I think that at some point she came to that realization too, even if she didn’t trust him completely. I do believe that she started to care for him more than she was willing to admit. I am glad that she has him, even if I know that their relationship will never be like normal daughter, father relationship. I am glad that she has him, to look out for him when Tess can’t. Plus him being infected, there is bigger chance he be able protect her. I am curious to see if their realthionship will progress or not, if Mac would ever be able to forgive him.

Serena, besides Mac and Kyle, she has became one of my favorite characters. I felt horrible what she had go through. I can’t imagine that she would ever be the same again. I don’t think I could gone through what she died without having a breakdown. I just hope that she will be okay afterwards and there won’t be any side effects. There isn’t anything that I didn’t like about this book. It was astonishing, magical. I can’t wait to see what happens next. A book that deserves more than five stars.
