Kat Kruger’s The Night Has Teeth is an exhilarating story that will leave readers breathless and hungry for more. With a rich and refreshing take on werewolves, solid characters, and effortless writing, this is a must read.
What I like most about this book is how seamless it is. Everything from the cover to the dramatic plot is polished and perfectly executed. Ms. Kruger unravels the story at an even pace that kept me turning the pages and uses vivid descriptions to bring the glamorous setting to life. She has also given Connor an extremely likable and relatable voice. His mannerisms and way of thinking are all believable and I found myself connecting with more than I thought I would.
The werewolf mythology is rather amazing. The scientific background helps ground the mythology and gives it an air of authenticity. It’s also complex and varying and all around interesting. I can’t imagine how long it took the author to solidify her version of a werewolf.
While every character brings something unique to the story, I found myself irritated by Madison, one of Connor’s new friends. To me, she’s simply an unlikable character. Besides her, I didn’t have a problem with anything else. Ms. Kruger leaves very little to be desired.
Overall, The Night Has Teeth is an impressive debut from an author to watch. Even if you think you’ve read enough werewolf books, this is definitely one you should consider reading. You won’t be disappointed!
