I’ll admit the mysteries and suspense helped too… This book managed to have it all: the teen angst, funny banter, intriguing secrets, malicious agendas as well as paranormal beasts. The characters however easily stole the show. They were all so unique; straying from the stereotypes I’ve had my fair share of in the YA genre. In particular is Arden who I have to admit is not the main protagonist, although you can’t consider him a sidekick either. If Connor called him that… well I don’t think he’d live long enough to see the reaction on his face. The dynamic Connor has with Arden is great to read because of Arden’s sullen character which clashes with Connor’s wit. It’s one of the reasons I’m looking forward to the sequel, where I can expect the events in this book will have a drastic effect. The different relationships Connor has with the others, made this a much more character-driven story than anything else. I liked the direction of the plot, and there were plenty of twists along the way but the synopsis revealed a bit too much for my taste. This however didn’t decrease from my enjoyment reading the book, so I can see why it won the 34th Atlantic Writing Competition, and I’d definitely recommend to YA readers who want a very quick read.

In THE NIGHT HAS TEETH, Connor gets more than he bargains for while away at school overseas. He finds himself the object of a greater force's attention that threatens everything he knows and is, and the ones he's grown to care about. Kat Kruger has crafted a fun and exciting novel in THE NIGHT HAS TEETH. No wonder it was the winner of the Atlantic Writing Competition. Due to some problematic health issues with a family pet, I couldn't finish this book as fast as I wanted to, but had these issues not surfaced I could have easily breezed through it. It's written in a way that flows nicely without stumbling or veering off track. I was enthralled from the prologue which sets the tone of the novel perfectly and knew I just had to read the rest. While werewolves in Paris has been done before. (i.e. An American Werewolf in Paris) it was still an interesting take on the subject and has its own unique flair. Of all the characters, my favorites had to be Amara and Arden . There was a whole fascinating story going on between them that, while brushed on briefly in dialogue exchange, left me craving more of. I feel like these two characters could easily have their own prequel novel or short story that I would LOVE to read. :D *fingers crossed* As a male, it may sound weird to say that I am not particularly fond of male point of views in literature. Many of them have failed, or been carbon copies/ stereotypical forms of: "'Sup, I'm a douche" or "Grr, I'm a bad boy that you love even though I will cheat on you and everything will go wrong even though you think you can change me" or my personal favorite "the sentimental best friend that stays just that." Therefore, it's very hard for me to like a character (male or female) in YA literature. Let's not forget the ladies with the "I'm a meek girl until I meet the handsome bad boy that changes that, or I suddenly become popular by some event" attitude. Connor, however, was definitely likeable enough for me to want to continue on with his story. While there was still something missing to make him memorable to me, he had to be one of the good male characters I've read of so far. He's neither too cocky, nor that much of a "bad boy" but still has an heir of confidence that is just right and not overbearing. Nevertheless, I love a good book that doesn't just stick to one genre. A great YA novel (or any novel for that matter) should merge elements of everything: Romance, Action, Mystery/Suspense, Comedy. The Night Has Teeth has it all. This was truly a fantastic first book in a promising trilogy. I would like to thank Fierce Ink Press for allowing me to read an eARC in exchange for an honest review! Final Thought: The Night Has Teeth. Once bitten, you'll be howling for more!

But it doesn't last. His host family, an alluring tattoo artist and her moody boyfriend, introduce Connor to a dark, underground world filled with werewolves, those born and those bitten, and unfortunately for him, he's on the wanted list of a human bitten over 400 years ago who's desperately searching for a cure. As well as a way to wipe out werewolves for good. Connor's loyalties will be tested as werewolves, mad science, and teen angst collide. The Night Has Teeth is dark and dangerous, what you'd expect from a book set in Paris, exploring the mysterious underground population of werewolves. Connor has nowhere to go but wrapped up in a centuries old battle between the born and the bitten, and what he'll discover will certainly change how he sees the world. I liked Connor in the beginning because he was such a geek. He didn't have friends, he played video games and read manga. It's refreshing to come across teen guys that are outcasts but also outcasts who fit into a specific niche that isn't just above-average intelligence. After he learns the secrets, he's desperate and floundering, and it's interesting to see how he tries to climb his way back to a semblance of normalcy. When using already established paranormal mythology and creatures like werewolves, it has to be tweaked and twisted enough to make it stand out and not be boring and overused. Also, it can't be altered too much or else it'll feel gimmicky and implausible. Here, there are enough tweaks to the original story of the werewolf to keep it interesting, stretching back into old world Europe before coming back to the 21st century. From the first chapter, not knowing what was to come, the book felt tense. Something was always happening out of the range of Connor's comprehension, and the reader can only wait until he figures it all out, until the bomb drops and blows the world he thought he knew to pieces.

After experiencing some less than pleasant things at his American schools, his parents decide it may be best to send him to boarding school abroad.

Connor Lewis has not found it easy in life to make friends. After experiencing some less than pleasant things at his American schools, his parents decide it may be best to send him to boarding school abroad. But who knew that this particular school was crawling with werewolves. Upon arriving to his new school Connor does not find it hard to find new friends. He is welcomed into a group with open arms, but soon discovers that this seemingly normal group of kids is more than he bargained for. But he builds relationships with each of them, forming strong bonds before finding out their secret. He soon finds out that it's not your conventional werewolf that he's dealing with. There is a mad scientist causing problems and an ongoing battle between the werewolf groups as well. This is not your typical werewolf story. A coming of age story? Sure. A urban fantasy with rival werewolf groups? Check. A creepy alter-ego'd scientist with a villainous plan? Yep, and so much more. The city of Paris plays more than just a setting in the story. The travels through the city and underground play a huge role in the storyline. As well as the fact that the group of people that Connor comes into contact with throughout the story are all in their own, each a valuable addition to the plot. My favorite being Madison and her very real emotions that any reader will drawn to. A fast paced story with twists that will shock and grip you until the last page.

    What a delightfully pleasant surprise! I cannot remember when I've read a first novel this engaging and this well written _and_ published by a micro-press publisher. What's so good about it? It's about werewolves for one. [I'm a sucker for them] And, although this is an urban fantasy novel, the rationale for the existence of lycanthropes is given a plausible enough science fictional explanation.

So, I'm looking forward to the next one in the trilogy.

    A beautiful little tale of werewolves, the wonders of Paris, and weird, weird science. Funny at times, feels-making at others (if you'll excuse my use of Uglies-speak), and downright freakish the rest of the time. Unfortunately, right now I don't know when I'll be able to read the sequels, since Kruger's said she won't be able to post the full text on Wattpad, and right now I've got no copies at my local library, or any of the other Bay Area/NorCal libraries I can special-order from.

    It is obvious some good research went into this and I LOVE that because although yes, it's ficton, it has rules and when you follow them throughout, it makes even a werewolf story believable. I was really able to get into the story without once getting jerked out of it with an "oh come ON!" moment. It creates question after question, but answers enough that you don't feel frustrated, but leaves enough unanswered that I am eagerly awaiting the next installment.

    Absolutely awesome! I'm normally not a fan of first person stories, but I was almost instantly hooked with this book. It's fabulously written and immerses you in a detailed world with a bit of a different take on the werewolf myth. I can't wait to read the rest in the series.

    2.5 stars. Reading The Night Has Teeth was another example of me clearing off some of the older books on my TBR; it had been on there since I was eighteen, and I think I would have liked it better had I read it then. As it is, I'm now twenty-three and have spent the last couple of years learning how to close read and critique literature, and my tastes have changed. I didn't hate this book by any means—I actually had a good time reading it—but it did fall pretty flat. There were some things I liked 2.5 stars.

I didn't hate this book by any means—I actually had a good time reading it—but it did fall pretty flat. There were some things I liked though, which goes back to my enjoyment of working through the book and seeing the directions Kruger took the story in. Her interpretation of werewolves was more engaging than I'd thought it would be, especially when it came to the differences in those born or bitten. I didn't think their society was completely developed, however, as I never got a sense of how pack dynamics worked. The explanation for their existence was...kind of confusing, and I had a little trouble keeping up with it due to how far-fetched it seemed, but I liked the way gene research and genetic modification played into the plot. I also enjoyed how Kruger handled the setting, because rather than show readers Paris as a tourist city, she gave us a much grittier, much quieter, much more real version that felt distinctly familiar and yet completely foreign. Connor wasn't the most compelling narrator, but I appreciated his humor and sarcasm when faced with the supernatural, especially when it came to some of the dialogue he shared with various characters. He was also an anime and manga fan, so kudos from Corley! The main thing that influenced the book negatively for me was that it was extremely young: this definitely felt like a debut novel, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I do think it was lacking in both world and character development. The prose was dated as well, with there being mentions of characters instant messaging each other, and the way certain songs or phrases were forced into the plot didn't feel organic. Kruger initially did a lot of telling as she tried to set up the story, but it felt clunky and made it more difficult for me to connect with Connor and the situations he found himself in. There weren't many characters I honestly liked—Boudicea was fascinating, though, and Arden ended up taking me by surprise. I initially disliked him because of his stereotypical alpha male characteristics, but what made this work was that Kruger crafted him as being firmly rooted in his wolf and not enjoying life as a man. Those two aside, though, no one really stood out, and characters like Josh and Madison annoyed me. I also felt like things were happening too quickly, so the story might have been better paced had Kruger spent more time fleshing out her world and those in it. At this point, I'm not sure if I'll be continuing with the trilogy; while I did have a good time reading this, the end result was less than satisfying, and since I'm not overly invested in the story or characters, I'm not sure if there would be any value in going forward with the next book. That being said, I may yet decide to check out The Night Has Claws if only to see Arden and Connor's relationship turned on its head.

Kruger won the 34th Atlantic Writing Competition with this story. Now, before I get started I just want to say that as a fellow Canadian and the fact that I love werewolves, I might be a bit harder on her, and I apologize for that. The book is about a boy named Conner who due to a biting incident in Kindergarten has distanced himself from the world. Connor now in his teens is looking for a change so he gets a scholarship and goes to Paris. He lives with a host family, a single woman and her boyfriend, who reveal to Connor the world of the werewolf: bitten, not bitten, mad scientists, genetic mutations, and a cult that rules over them all. The story is told in first person. Everything is from Connor's point of view. I found the things he tells the reader about himself to be entirely different from the way he behaves in the story. He is constantly saying that he's awkward, that he's a gaming geek, that he's into manga, and that he can't make friends. His actions show him to be a busy body trying with every ounce of his heart and soul to desperately grab a seat at that cool table. There is a lack of genuine knowledge about his so called interests and instead he makes more popular culture references, like things about reality TV. I found that I was frustrated with Connor's lack of action in taking control of what was happening to him. He kind of takes the position of the reader or audience member and just sits back and let's things happen. There is one part where he finds out that some of the werewolves are out to get him. What does he do? He just goes to school and worries about the strained relationship between his two new friends. Also, he knows that they are dangerous cause the injured one of his caretakers, but his friends want to go to a secret underground club, so he goes along. I found the last bit of the book to be the best, for he finally did something. He finally decided to take control. I think Kruger truly found her characters voices at the end. Her other characters have more of an intensional falsehood to them. Every single one of them is hiding something from Connor except the villain who is transparent as evil. Madison is one of the characters where you can guess her secret. She comes off as being loud and obnoxious, she is trying hard to be nonchalant, like she doesn't care. She covers herself in layers of outrages hair and clothes, so, those cool kids can't see how much she wants to be one of them. I liked how Kruger hinted that she knows how easy it is for the reader to guess Madison's secret by foreshadowing a kind of "what's the big deal" reaction. She does this through a trip to the Louvre to view the painting of the "Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci. Connor and another character discuss how they don't get it. It's just this small, dark portrait of this plain looking woman. Why is it important? Why is it such a big deal? Where's the shock? The world is over saturated with images of her that the real thing sometimes falls flat. Madison has a secret but Connor already knows the punchline. He's heard it before. I understand that this is the first book and meant to be an introduction to this world. There are a lot of good moments but then nothing really occurs in between. One of these moments is when Connor learns about the werewolves. His reaction to their existence felt very genuine. Running away, covering his face waiting to be killed, and then he asks almost no questions going back to being a normal kid. I was surprised that the bite occurred around the middle of the book. I thought by the way the book was going Kruger might have been leaving that for a cliffhanger moment. I was like "oh" and then the imagery she created with the wolf being under his skin that he can't get out. I thought things were really going to kick off from there especially since he was in the lions den, coming face to face with the villain, but then nothing happened. Connor doesn't try to escape and in the end they just drive him home. There are all these parts in between these beautifully crafted moments that pull away from the supernatural elements in where Kruger at the end just throws out the word werewolf so the reader does not forget. Connor's out eating Sushi. Werewolf. Madison and Josh are fighting. Werewolf. Let's go to a school dance. Werewolf. Kruger's writing is fast moving, making for quite a quick read. None of the scenes are drawn out and you move through them easily. There is a rhythmic quality to her writing style that has one bouncing from one word to the next. I found that pace only slowed when the detail increased. Kruger revealed her knowledge of Paris by stoping the reader for just a moment to take in the sights and sounds through lyrical beauty. One of the scenes I enjoyed is when she first described the cemetery and the statues and stones that lie within. The atmosphere she creates at that moment is simply breath taking. The one thing lacking in her writing is the dialogue. There is no distinction of age. I got no feeling of an older person talking to a younger one, or vice versa. They all sound like a bunch of teenagers. They all sound like they are equal in age, education, and cultural background. Only the one person spoke slightly different but that is simply to establish that she was neither North American or Parisian. Speaking of culture there is very little culture clash. Our main character grew up in New York and the two friends he meets are from Canada, but there are no comparisons made. Connor brings up no memories or nostalgia of New York. The descriptions of Paris are quite beautiful but they are being made by someone who doesn't need to connect them to previous knowledge in order to interpret and understand them. Someone who has seen these buildings and locations all the time, not a teenage boy who has only ever known the sights and sounds of New York before. There is however, a nice inclusion of the French language every now and then. There is also some nice misunderstanding in how English expressions don't always translate into French. These elements are added by other characters and the main characters are not hindered and know exactly how to navigate the situations. The area that Connor has trouble navigating is this new world he has entered. I saw this world really opening up at the end of the book. The intrigue greatly builds leaving me curious about which way the story will be going. It makes the reader want to check out the next book. Kruger has created a new take on the werewolf with a stunning backdrop and a fast paced steadily moving story. It is a fast light read and no where as ominous as the title makes one think. If you're into snarky teenagers, werewolves, and mad scientists I suggest you take a gander at "The Night has Teeth."

    There are so many YA books out there that deal with supernatural characters, that it’s hard to find something a bit different. It’s all ‘boy meets girl, boy likes girl, girl happens to be a *insert flavour of the month paranormal creature here*’ or vice versa. Which is why I really enjoyed reading The Night Has Teeth, because it’s so NOT that.

It’s all ‘boy meets girl, boy likes girl, girl happens to be a *insert flavour of the month paranormal creature here*’ or vice versa. Which is why I really enjoyed reading The Night Has Teeth, because it’s so NOT that. While it takes a bit of time to get going – the werewolf mythology isn’t introduced until a good few chapters in, and you don’t really get an overarching sense of their world until much later – the level of detail and thought that’s gone into the mythology is enough to make me forgive the slow start. You need that time to root you in the characters and invest in their stories. And the mythology is really interesting and individual. There are plenty of hints about what’s coming up, but there were a couple of curveballs regarding the mythology that I didn’t see coming, despite having accidentally read the first couple of chapters of book two before I started this. I love the idea of the science of the mythology too. I’m a big sucker for ‘realistic’ paranormal. I love it when writers are able to cleverly explain how the paranormal world could scientifically work, it’s so satisfying. And though Kruger hasn’t give much of the science yet, there’s enough to suggest that she’s thought it all out and it will come more to the fore in the next two instalments. Of course, there is a bit of ‘boy meets girl’, but the development of the relationship between Maddie and Connor is also slower, and much richer and more believable for it. And Connor never looses the sense that there are more important things in his life – such as the discovery that his host family are werewolves. A climactic finale leaves on a bit of a killer cliffhanger, making me keen to start the next book. It promises to be faster paced, more exciting, and even more immersed in the mythology. So, this was a reasonable opening to what could be an outstanding trilogy.

Werewolves have been a metaphor for the transition of youth to adult since Tony Rivers fell into the clutches of Dr. Alfred Brandon in 1957. The Night Has Teeth returns to that metaphor with a tale of modern shape-shifters fighting a centuries-old battle in the streets of Paris, France. Connor Lewis is on the trip of a lifetime. Selected to spend his senior year of high school at a prestigious Paris school, he hopes to shed his geeky past and reinvent himself. His host family seems odd to him. Amara doesn't look much older than he is, and both her dog, Lou, and her boyfriend Arden seems to have a grudge against him. At school, he makes friends, Josh and Madison, Canadian "army brats" who are also at the school on scholarship. Madison leads him into the underground music and social scene of Paris. They visit a hidden nightclub, buried deep in the tunnels under Paris, and Connor is inadvertently bitten by a werewolf. He finds himself pulled between three warring factions, with no idea which of them is telling the truth, or which group he should trust. Author Kat Kruger creates a plausible origin for the two types of werewolf tropes found in pop culture. Werewolves are either born or bitten. Natural born werewolves transform, at will, into full wolf form, indistinguishable from normal wolves. Humans who are bitten by the born transform into grotesque half-man, half-wolf forms. I particularly enjoyed the character-driven story. Connor's first-person account of his experiences is completely engaging. Seeing Paris through his eyes feels natural, without pointless exposition. This leads to my second compliment: The author creates an excellent sense of place in a city that has been used as a stage for centuries. The dialogue is engaging, the story well-paced, and I was never jarred out of the story by poor writing. Another delight is that the secondary characters have their own emotional arcs. They are just as interesting and integral to the story as Connor. I also appreciate that the choices offered to Connor are never defined in a good vs. evil manner. All major characters have an agenda, and they pursue it with a vengeance. There were a few sore thumbs that stuck out. I feel the prologue is unnecessary. Getting bitten by, or biting another young child is a problem, but not that traumatic. I was bitten and scarred by a little boy when I was in Kindergarten, and I barely remember it. It begs the question that is never sufficiently answered in this novel: Did Connor's parents have a reason to overreact to the bite? I noticed an issue with consistency. We learn that one of the factions, which appears to consist of bitten werewolves, make and enforce a rule of law for all werewolves. I wonder, why would bloodline werewolves abide by the rules set down by bitten humans? It's a social order that doesn't quite work for me. Also, these rules are inconsistent. If biting a human is punished by death, why are characters who bit a human, and there are several of them, merrily walking around, not dead? I recommend this book for both young adult and adult readers. It's solid story featuring appealing characters who have a realistic sense of agency and influence over their own lives. The trilogy continues with The Night has Claws and The Night is Found. We received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect the opinion of the book or the content of the review. This review was originally published at http://www.bookie-monster.com

THE NIGHT HAS TEETH by Kat Kruger is a captivating and and suspenseful journey through werewolf lore, the streets of France and more than a little bit of mad science. Right away, the prologue wrenches you into the story and keeps you interested. A primary (kindergarten) kid who bites another kid hard enough to draw blood? You have my attention! After that incident, Connor is sent to a French private school where he remains on the outskirts of school social life. It’s not until he receives a scholarship to a school in France that his life gets more interesting than he ever wanted thanks to some Canadian army brats, Madison and Josh, and his host family who don’t look old enough to play parents, really (Amara and Arden – and can I just say, I love their names). But Connor is a sensible sort, and doesn’t let all the ensuing crazyness go to his head – he doesn’t panic (well, a little bit, but who wouldn’t) when he finds out there are werewolves running around France, and indeed, the world, and he doesn’t blindly follow the instructions and wants of any of the wolves out to ensnare him. The only fault I had with Connor is that he doesn’t pester for information enough. He says he wants to know what’s going on, but then keeps letting himself be distracted or put off the question. If he’d been a bit more stubborn, he probably would have had answers sooner (but then we wouldn’t have had a book =P). There is a really neat distinction and lore surrounding Kat Kruger’s werewolves; they are either born, or bitten. Born wolves are those that turn into actual wolves, while people who are bitten turn into the wolfman type creature from movies. And that’s where the mad science comes into play! The antagonist of the story, Henri Boguet, is a bitten werewolf searching for a way to find a cure for those people who are bitten, but of course he has ulterior motives and secret plans that will not be good for the born werewolf population. Connor is wanted by both Boguet and the born werewolves, but he has no idea why and no one will tell him. His journey for answers and trying to stop Boguet drags the reader through the story, not wanting to put the book down because the action, mystery and teen angst (does Madison like Connor or not?) never stops, and you need to know how it ends! THE NIGHT HAS TEETH by Kat Kruger is an awesome beginning to a series. The writing is wonderfully descriptive in both character and setting (love that it takes place in France), and Connor’s emotions – confusion, as well as determination and fear – shine through clearly. While there are moments of reader frustration as the book continues and Connor still doesn’t know why everyone seems to want him, questions do get answered near the end and the final scenes and revelations are intense. THE NIGHT HAS TEETH is one of those books where Connor can’t trust anyone but himself, and he has good reason not to. It’s easy to see why this book won the 34th Atlantic Writing Competition, and I’m excited to see where the story goes in book two!

    Connor Lewis is chased by a memory, on his first day of kindergarden he bit a boy hard enough to scar the kid for life and has been a social outcast since. Through an unexpected turn of good fortune, he lands a scholarship to study in Paris, where everything starts to look up.

Through an unexpected turn of good fortune, he lands a scholarship to study in Paris, where everything starts to look up. Soon though, his host family inadvertently introduces him to the underworld of werewolves where there are two types: the born and the bitten. Those born to it take the form of elegant wolves, while the latter are cursed to transform into the half-man, half-beast creatures of horror movies. Connor's loyalties are tested as he becomes embroiled in a conflict where werewolves, mad science and teen angst collide. The prologue of The Night has Teeth captured me immediately into our surroundings and really drew me into the rest of this well woven tale. There was some great use of foreshadowing and the characterisation for the main character was superb and was fleshed out really well in addition to being really easy to relate to. I found the surroundings were also vividly described and placed us into the atmosphere with a clear image in our heads that kept me engaged and absorbed me into the heart of Paris. The science behind the werewolves were explored deeply yet still retained that element of interest with aspects such as DNA and genetics. It is because of this that you can often tell that the author has researched her work and manages to convey that same level of understanding to her readers. The backstory of character's were also explored and it was great to see past situations and changes and I think it really added to the book and was executed well by the author. I sometimes felt that some of that side characters such as Amara needed more characterisation and sometimes the writing felt a bit, simple but it in saying so I think it was made up through some vivid descriptions. I also sometimes felt like there was something missing, like some 'spark' or element of added suspense that needed to give the book that extra push although it was paced very well. Kruger often got the reader into the very midst of action and kept me hooked to the story the whole way through. I also really enjoyed how the author sometimes incorporated every day life effortlessly into the plot and it was really interesting to see how they interacted with different characters. I also enjoyed the implementation of the supernatural element of the wolves and how it influenced the plot. The cover of the novel itself is brilliant and really draws you in while at the same time reflecting aspects of the story. Overall, The Night has Teeth has an intriguing setting with a great assortment of unique characters, a vivid setting and a well-executed supernatural element. I eagerly look forward to reading it's sequel and more works by the author.

    I expected to enjoy this book, but I enjoyed it considereably more that I was expecting to. The Night Has Teeth is a beguiling and engaging urban fantasy which more than fulfils the promise implicit in having won the Atlantic Writing Competition.

I was instantly hooked from the prologue which describes how our narrator, as a small child bites another child so badly that his (Connor - the narrator’s) life is affected. That brings us to the point at which the story starts and Connor has just arrived in Paris as an exchange student. We, the readers, know that there is something odd about him, but he has pretty much created his life around himself as a normal kid, though solitary and geekish. We, the readers, know that he is about to learn what he is but the story unfolds so well that there is never any lack of suspense from this pre-knowing. The plot, storytelling and writing are all very good indeed. This book is classed as ‘Young Adult’ but it is polished enough that even people who do not normally go for the YA books should enjoy it if they are fond of urban fantasy. The only ways in which it targets younger audiences specifically are that the main characters are themselves young and that there is simplicity in the characters, their interactions and relationships that lack the complexity of book targeting older readers. Conner fro example, handles relationships and the world around him with the slight awkwardness of a socially inept character and that makes him believable to read. The descriptions of the various people in the book are very good; I had the feeling that were I to encounter one of them on the street I would instantly recognise them. In the second third of the book I started to feel a little dissatisfied with the character development of the secondary players – but the end of the book quashed any incipient dissatisfaction I was feeling, also this is book one of a trilogy so there will be time to develop them further. One thing that truly makes this book shine is the descriptions of the scenes. The author has a very definite, very strong talent for setting the scene. A small mention of cobblestones or metal railings, a fleeting description of an odour and you can see it all as clearly as if you were there. This ability means that you almost wish Connor could spend more time just wandering around Paris letting you see it through his eyes before the plot fully unfolds. Anyway, I enjoyed it thoroughly, plan on reading it again soon and really hope I do not have to wait too long for the sequel which I will absolutely be reading. At this point I should also mention In accordance with the terms and conditions, that this book was a Goodreads giveaway. I am getting some great books from the give-away scheme – bring on the next one!

    This book has a main character that hooks you immediately. Connor isn't tall, dark, and handsome but he has a quirky charm about him that draws you in. From the start of the story, I found him to be endearing and it was an added bonus to find the secondary characters to be similarly appealing. Amara and Arden are the couple who host Connor while he is in Paris. They could easily have their own story written and it would be great! Arden seems eternally angry and Amara is quiet but determined. The This book has a main character that hooks you immediately.

Amara and Arden are the couple who host Connor while he is in Paris. They could easily have their own story written and it would be great! Arden seems eternally angry and Amara is quiet but determined. They don't talk much but you can tell that they have a rock solid bond just by the way they communicate with their eyes and their body language. I was rooting for them from the beginning. Then there was Madison, another secondary character who, although troubled and seemingly depressed, was also very interesting. Each character had secrets and as Connor got closer and closer to the truth, it was clear that all of them were entwined by a common thread. There was not one character in this book who didn't have purpose. The plot was engaging and it flowed at a nice pace. The action and suspense was consistent and the only part that I found to be a bit slow was when Connor was listening to an explanation of who he was and the scientific research when he was taken captive. Otherwise, the story moved along quickly and it was hard to put down. It isn't too gory but there is some bloodshed, which is to be expected when reading about werewolves, right? However, this isn't your usual werewolf novel. Much of it focuses on Connor and his relationships with the other characters, with him slowly realizing who/what he is and that the world and people around him aren't what he originally thought. There is a bit of science fiction in the mix also while certain characters look for a "cure" to stop werewolves. In the Paris setting, the catacombs, cemeteries, and underground added to the mysterious yet inviting atmosphere of the story. I'm still not sure who the good guys are and I'm not sure Connor is either at this book's end. Don't expect the story to wrap up nicely because it does the exact opposite, leaving you desperate to know what will happen next for Connor. It seems like there will eventually be a battle between good and evil and I'm very interested to see who the real heroes and villains in this series will be. :)

    Most novels are strong in either one of two things: plot or characters. Generally, I prefer character-driven stories. I read to better understand human nature – what drives people, how they react in situations, what they think about and how they feel – and to make an emotional connection to the characters. That said, The Night Has Teeth is stronger on the plot side, and though I don't often read young adult and supernatural fiction, I believe this is typical of that genre.

That said, The Night Has Teeth is stronger on the plot side, and though I don't often read young adult and supernatural fiction, I believe this is typical of that genre. There is tons of action, suspense, and mystery, which I expected, but I was surprised and delighted by how relatable the main character is, too. What sets this book apart is how real the protagonist is, even when he's a teenaged boy with a history of biting people until they spill blood on the schoolyard. The story is told in first person, a challenging feat for any writer but perhaps particularly so for a woman writing from the point of view of a teenaged boy. Kat Kruger pulls it off. Connor is a believable 17-year-old, an American living in Paris who is trying to make friends and fit into a new culture that is rife with people who have their own motivations for befriending him. He's awkward at parties and around girls, self-conscious at times about his body, and smart but not sure about what to do with his intelligence. He is thoughtful but brave when he needs to be, as he continually finds himself confronted with things that aren't what they appear, people who transform into beasts, and scientists who covet his DNA. The Night Has Teeth also wins on cool appeal with secondary characters such as his tattoo artist roommate and her brooding, rugged boyfriend the butcher, and his school chums from Canada. And I have to mention Paris, which is both the setting and another character in The Night Has Teeth. The city sets the mood, and the night scenes in the catacombs and graveyards gave me chills. The Night Has Teeth is the first book in the Madgeburg Trilogy, published by the innovative Fierce Ink Press, and deservedly won the 34th Atlantic Writing Competition. It whisked me away to another world that was both familiar yet foreign, and proved to me that plot and character don't have to come at the expense of one another. I can't wait to sink my teeth into the sequels.

Little does he realize that his new companions would introduce him to a literally, and figuratively, underground world of werewolves . He learns that there are two kinds: those that are born werewolves and those that are bitten by them. He also soon learns that he’s being hunted by some of them, for experimental purposes. Connor struggles to stay alive while hoping his instincts steer him towards those he can trust and those he should stay far away from. I really enjoyed the story from Connor’s POV. The protagonist is nerdy, not very popular and a bit bumbling along the way to find his footing in social situations, and life. The development of characters are great, as some of the subsidiary players take a more prominent role as the narrative develops. As the plot thickens, so the pacing of the story picks up – sending the readers racing around the city with Connor. The dynamic between Connor and the other characters are well established and compelling to read. I not only cared what was going on with Connor, but I wanted to know what everyone else was up to as well. Truth be told, I’m not one who often reads many books about werewolves. I find they’re sometimes very hard to get right without it becoming overly cheesy. That being said, Kruger takes a more scientific approach to this genre and it works remarkably well. The reader goes on a more realistic journey with Connor, as he discovers the unusual beings that are around him all throughout the city. I appreciated that aspect of the novel – where we as the readers aren’t just expected to believe that these different types of werewolves exist. Kruger gives us the whole origin and reasoning behind it, and it works. The Night Has Teeth is a great first book to the Magdeburg Trilogy, setting the scene for Kruger’s werewolf mythology.

    Kat Kruger's The Night Has Teeth is a cornucopia of emotions. I enjoyed it fantastically. Kruger has an easy and comfortable way with words. Her novel`s voice is confident and I was rapidly lulled in to a cozy world of fantasy. Kruger never lets you settle; whatever theories you may have are constantly being uprooted. The reader experiences the story directly from the main character, Conner's, point of view. Thus, as his perceptions and ideas shift, so did mine.

The reader experiences the story directly from the main character, Conner's, point of view. Thus, as his perceptions and ideas shift, so did mine. There are two sides to every story, as the saying goes, and this expression definitely applies to Kurger's novel. This aspect of the story means that I can empathize with Conner as he works to determine the right thing to do. His decisions are not made lightly; he weighs each option carefully before making decisions. Because of this, Conner is a role-model for young adults. Although his life is fantastical, the idea of sorting through life's intricacies is one that always applies in any reality. As I was nearing the end of the novel, my mind was already thinking about what was to come in the next book in the series. It was extremely tempting to pick up The Night Has Claws, the second book in The Magdeburg Trilogy. I resisted, however, so that my review would be unbiased by how the story continues in book two. But, because I am itching to dig in to the second book, I know The Night Has Teeth is a wonderful book written by an adept author from whom great things can be expected. Everyone should read it so go out and get yourself a copy forthwith (follow this link to get yours: http://tinyurl.com/kuy6mlg)!

Overtime, he is introduced to the secret world of werewolves, finding out there are two kinds: the born and the bitten. The born become full-fledged wolves while the bitten become half-human, half-wolf creatures. A mad scientist, a very old, bitten-werewolf , is seeking out a “cure” to wipe out the existence of the werewolves, and Connor is caught in the middle of the feud. What I did like about the story and what kept me reading was the constant mystery of how Connor would fit into all of this. The question I always had in my mind was: Is Connor a werewolf or does he just have great potential to become one? Also, I loved how Kat integrated both kinds of werewolves: the beautiful, full-fledged wolves and the grotesque half-human and wolf creatures. I’ve never read a novel that incorporated both types and it was a refreshing take on the mythology. In the novel, there was text speak, a mention of manga, and the characters eat out at a sushi joint. It made it that much more relatable since I am a self-proclaimed geek and the characters were doing or experiencing things that are a part of my daily life too. Kat understands her audience and that’s clear through her writing. Complete Review: http://feistylittlewoman.wordpress.co...

As the synopsis states, he is a 17 year old boy who is shipped off to study in Paris. In Paris, he makes some unlikely friends and manages to get thrust head long into the world of werewolves. In this tale, there are two kinds of werewolves and of course an evil scientist *insert evil laugh here* who is sure he has found the cure to their “disease”.

I know the old saying is “Hell hath no fury like a WOMAN scorned” but in Kat Kruger’s urban fantasy a more accurate saying would be “Hell hath no fury like the crazy scary badass mad scientist scorned.” I loved the dynamic created while waiting to see which side of the story Connor would fall on. Would he choose to side with the scientist and rid the world of werewolves or choose the werewolves who have been protecting him the entire time he has been in Paris? In Conclusion: The Night Has Teeth by Kat Kruger is a good ride, and I can’t wait to see what is waiting around the bend in Book Two… Definitely recommend to all, ages 12+. Mom Notes: Does contain violence and werewolf lore. Nothing too “graphic” though. Would be ok for kids who enjoy scifi movies etc, and have been exposed to this type of media before. (think Underworld, Teen Wolf, etc) =D

I’m pleased to say, though, that this is a far cry from the days of Fear Street, also surpassing contemporaries in the field (Twilight, anyone? No? Good). This is something much more ambitious and fun. The book takes you on a thrilling ride through modern-day Paris, as Connor tries—and fails—to live his life as a normal teenager. His mysterious host, the tattoo artist Amara, and her handsome, brooding boyfriend, Arden, are equal parts distant and compelling. They’re his introduction to Parisian society, a world much more complicated than he originally thought. The characters that inhabit this world are complex, engaging, and the reader is always left wondering what hidden information is going to come to light.

I'm really good at context clues and figuring out what is going on, and dont't get me wrong, French is a really pretty language, but I just don't speak it. Anyhoo, this was a fantastic book and I can't wait until i get to read the next book.

    I was instantly intrigued by the premise and the awesome cover, but I was disappointed with the execution of The Night has teeth. The writing was decent, but the pace was way too slow for me and I couldn’t connect to any of the characters. But I didn’t dislike any of them the way I disliked the main character. Connor Lewis is essentially a male Mary-Sue. Shy, awkward, needs other people to protect him, and everyone’s kind of drawn to him. It got a bit annoying at times.

I mean, he finds out that werewolves actually exist and they all want him, and essentially just shrugs it off like it’s no big deal. Just once, I’d like see a main character get appropriately freaked out by this stuff. I mean, this wasn’t an awful book, but not as great as I was expecting.
