Pita Sedgewick's life has taken a turn for the weirdest. First a strange gypsy fortuneteller stops her in the supermarket then she almost runs off the road to avoid hitting a wolf with her car. Don't even get her started about the strange dreams about shape-shifting to go running with wolves, and suddenly she finds herself curious about her birth parents. Who are they, where are they from and why did they give her up? Her list of questions grows the closer she gets to the answers. How does a girl come to terms with the discovery that she's not quite human?
Dayana Knight's Curse of the Marhime is the first in her Roma Wolf Tales series. With plot twists and turns aplenty, the ups and downs in the book make reading it an intellectual rollercoaster. Who should she trust, who will betray her, why and when are all questions that beat at your brain throughout the story. And just when you think you have the whole thing figured out, it changes again. I just love a book that keeps me guessing and if the first is anything to go by this series definitely will.
