Cover Art: I liked the cover of Camp H.O.W.L. It helps that it is part of Dreamspinner Publishing line so you know that it’s shorter and sweet. And I really liked the background picture of the woods.
Synopsis: The blurb included Moonmates and “werewolf puberty”. How could it not entice you to read? Never heard either for a paranormal book, it definitely intrigued me.
Plot: There was definitely a great start and build up to the story. It totally kept me wanting to find out more.
Main Characters: How could you not like Adrian? His whole life got switched around and he handled it so well. With Tate, I may have wanted to swat him for being a little hard-headed, but I still found him likable and I liked how his character developed.
Secondary Characters: Ryan was a tough nut to crack and I liked his wisecracking and being a total teenager. I liked that the secondary characters were helping to build this new world but the story stayed focused on Tate & Adrian. I look forward to reading more about them in future stories.
Flow/Continuity: I liked that the story shared both MC’s perspective and kept the story moving. It was fast-paced and easy to read.
Conflict & Climax: I liked that the story built quickly but reasonably and the climax definitely made me want to keep reading and I can’t wait for more books in the series.
Writing Style: I like Bru Baker’s writing style. It’s funny, interesting and always kept me wanting to read more. She doesn’t bog down the story with details that aren’t necessary and keeps the story clean and easy to read.
Editing: I thought the editing was great and no real errors that pulled me out of the story.
Formatting: I liked the whitespace to print ratio and the font is easy to read. I love that DSP includes the blurb at the beginning of the book. It’s easy to go back to the front to refresh memory of the story, rather than having to check websites (this might be my biggest eBook pet peeve!)
Price: $4.99 US, $6.25 CAN, £3.82. The book has almost 60K words, so I think the price is reasonable.
I give this 8 out of 10!
