Book Review: Verity, by Claire Farrell (2011).

Perdy is a teenage girl still in school, and who’s home life is far from what’s considered “happy families”. However, it looks like everything is set to change. Claire Farrell has written a great read in Verity, which is also the first of what seems to be a pretty good Werewolf series directed at young adults.

The plot line is fairly simple and it follows the familiar purpose of the main characters finding out and realising who is, and isn’t, a Werewolf. But the twist is the Gypsy Curse that is inflicted on Nathan’s family, the new boy at school. It isn’t long before Perdy realises that the curse also involves her. But that’s after she finds her supposed best friend has gone mad and her whole life has turned completely upside-down!

Basically this has been an easy read with the basic plot of boy meets girl, boy turns into Werewolf and someone gets hurt! With a few extra twists and turns that keep the reader interested. The grammar isn’t the best but the book is more detailed for you do adults than to the older reader. Each of the main characters are developed simply giving readers only a basic connection, though admittedly Perdy is starting to grow on me. I would recommend this title to any young adult branching out in the realms of the fantasy genre. I give this book a rating of 6/10 stars.
