Waiting on Wednesday (86) - Hemlock

Kathleen Peacock
Publisher: HarperCollins
To be released: May 8, 2012

Summary (from Goodreads):

Mackenzie and Amy were best friends. Until Amy was brutally murdered.

Since then, Mac’s life has been turned upside down. She is being haunted by Amy in her dreams, and an extremist group called the Trackers has come to Mac’s hometown of Hemlock to hunt down Amy’s killer: A white werewolf.

Lupine syndrome—also known as the werewolf virus—is on the rise across the country. Many of the infected try to hide their symptoms, but bloodlust is not easy to control.

Wanting desperately to put an end to her nightmares, Mac decides to investigate Amy’s murder herself. She discovers secrets lurking in the shadows of Hemlock, secrets about Amy’s boyfriend, Jason, her good pal Kyle, and especially her late best friend. Mac is thrown into a maelstrom of violence and betrayal that puts her life at risk.

Kathleen Peacock’s thrilling novel is the first in the Hemlock trilogy, a spellbinding urban fantasy series filled with provocative questions about
prejudice, trust, lies, and love.

I see the words “urban fantasy” in this description and that makes me want to read it. I love the idea of the “werewolf virus” that people are trying to hide. Also, there seems to be a little mystery thrown in there as well. This book just sounds really interesting. And isn’t that cover gorgeous. I really like it for some reason, maybe cause it has a bit of a darker feel to it?
