Havoc by Jeff Sampson is an exciting edition to the first novel Vesper. It is just as intense and intriguing but goes more in depth with the characters since we were already introduced to them. Emily is strong and courageous without being stuck up and she knows what needs to be done in order to get the job done.
The mystery that revolves around Emily and her pack-mates is enjoyable and keeps the reader hooked until the very end. It is a great mix of Urban Fantasy, Young Adult, and Science Fiction. The characters are enjoyable, relatable, and likable. The Shadowmen are creepy, and make the book have an eerie tone. Going through the company with Emily and her pack-mates is exciting. There is nothing better than being able to truly connect with the characters and feel like you're apart of their journey. Jeff Sampson does a great job of involving his readers.
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.
