Meet Tommi Grayson: she's all bark . . . and all bite
'It was like my wolf had been there all along, waiting for me to tap its hand and step into the ring . . .'
Tommi Grayson's never exactly been a normal girl. Bright blue hair, a mysterious past and barely controlled rage issues have a way of making a woman stand out. Yet she's never come close to guessing who she really is . . .
When her mother dies, a shattered Tommi decides to track down her estranged father. Leaving Scotland for a remote corner of New Zealand, she discovers the truth of her heritage - and it's a whole lot more than merely human.
Barely escaping with her life, now Tommi must return to her her friends, pretending everything is normal, while all too aware of the dangers lurking outside - and within. Worse still, something has followed her home . . .
With the clock ticking, can Tommi learn to control her new powers in time to save the ones she loves?
Mixing elements of fantasy, mystery and romance, Who's Afraid? is a must-read tale about one woman who takes on the world, one bite at a time
'Gripping, fast-paced, and completely unexpected, Who's Afraid has more twists than a tornado. I loved this story!' Darynda Jones, New York Times bestselling author of the Charley Davidson series
This fast-paced urban fantasy kicks off a series featuring Tommi Grayson, a young Scottish art curator, muay Thai practitioner, and as she's just discovered werewolf. Her mother's death prompts Tommi to go to New Zealand to search for her estranged Ma ori father. Her meeting with her father's family, a powerful werewolf clan, is far more traumatic than she expected, and her half-brother tries to rape her. She escapes and returns to Scotland. With the help of her model-gorgeous supernatural guardian, Lorcan, she works to make peace with her werewolf nature and the complex supernatural world it connects to, only to find that the danger she tried to flee has followed her. While the plot is largely engaging, its racial dynamics are often uncomfortable: most of the Ma ori characters are antagonists, and a man with a Native American eagle tattoo is nicknamed Poc, short for Pocahontas. However, Tommi is a well-crafted and charismatic though not always likable character, and the detail Lewis uses to describe everything from Tommi's mundane life to her excruciating transformation from human to wolf helps ground the narrative and draw the reader in.
