Havoc by Jeff Sampson

Friday, December 23, 2011
Emily Webb thought life would return to normal after the death of the man who attacked her and her fellow “Deviants.” Or as normal as it could be, after discovering that she has nighttime superpowers . . . and she’s a werewolf. But when Emily awakes one night to find an otherworldy Shadowman watching her, she knows the danger has only just begun.

So Emily and her pack-mates set out to find the people who made them what they are, and why. But as they get closer to the truth, they realize they aren’t the only ones in town with special powers: The most popular girls in school might just have a secret of their own–and they might just have it out for Emily.

With shadowy beings stalking them, a mysterious company doing all it can to keep the truth hidden, and the secrecy of her new identity in jeopardy, life threatens to spiral out of control for Emily. Soon these dangers will come together in one terrifying confrontation that may force her to make the toughest choice of her life . . . so far.

Goodreads Summary

Emily is still the main character in this novel.  Author Jeff Sampson takes the reader on a rapid mystery tinged with romance and packed with action.  Reader who enjoyed the first book should pick up this next novel in the series.  Emily tells her story, an odd tale involving modern science and altered genes.  The reader picks up more information surrounding the mystery in this next novel and gets to know the characters better.  A new character is introduced, one that changes the dynamic between Emily and her "mates'" relationship. 

Emily hits several new obstacles in this novel.  The popular girls at school are snubbing her at times and downright bullying her in others, for a reason Emily doesn't know.  The new pack-mate adds a new element to the pack and forces Emily to reevaluate her own relationships.  More mystery is added to the overall plot.  There is a lot going on in this novel, the reader may have a hard time keeping the events straight.  Overall, this book is great for those who enjoyed the first or prefer young adult action novels.
