31 Days of Halloween - Celia and the Wolf by Donna Maloy


Amazon link:
Barnes and Noble:

A teen shapeshifter, a werewolf, and the madman who plans to destroy them on All Hallows' Eve. Celia and the Wolf. A 5-star read for teens 11yo and up.

Winner, 2014 Award for Best Juvenile Fiction from Bookstore Without Borders.

"This is the kind of book that you can’t stop reading. When you reach the end, you close the book, sit back with a grin and say, ‘THAT was a great adventure.’"

     “My sister is not yet a werewolf. But she will be five days from now. The last night of this full moon is also All Hallow's Eve and the night of her twelfth birthday. The night she will change for the first time. And then they will have to kill her. They will have no choice.”
     “Have to? What do you mean?”
     He shook his head. “Celia, remember that a loup-garou is completely the wolf. Eh bien. When the moon rises that, Lilette will become the wolf. Then they will let her go.”
     “That’s good, isn’t it?”
     “Non, that is terrible. There will be no one there to guide her first change, or protect her. The man who holds her calls himself The Guardian. But he is a fiend! He will make certain Lilette is hungry when he lets her go. As hungry as only a wolf can get. With many small animals and people around to tempt her. The villagers will have weapons to ‘protect’ themselves.”
     Remy’s eyes held mine fast. I sucked in a hard breath, suddenly realizing what he was saying. I could almost picture it in my mind.
     “Tell me, Celia, what do you expect those people with weapons will do when they see a girl become a wild, scared, hungry wolf?”
