Wolf's Bane: Otherworld: Kate & Logan, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Summer camp is a traditional teenage rite of passage, but when you add supernatural powers to the typically high dosage of adolescent hormones - you get an even more combustible mix. Sixteen-year-old werewolf twins Kate and Logan Danvers are none too thrilled at being shipped off to a supernatural youth leadership conference in West Virginia.
From the moment they arrive at the camp, the twins sense something is off, and they react in their usual manner - Logan reserving judgment and surveying the setup while Kate charges forward, determined to get answers. Kate and Logan quickly ascertain that most of the conference attendees have already formed hostile factions, leaving the twins and a few other misfits to band together.
What seems like teen hormones in overdrive becomes something much more dangerous, even deadly. Add in a strange magic-warded cabin in the woods and a local history rife with curses and macabre legends, and it becomes clear this was a really, really bad place to build a camp for teenage supernaturals.
Author's note: This is book 1 in a YA duology. As with all my YA trilogies, this first book ends in a cliff-hanger. Book 2, Wolf's Curse, comes out in March.

Logan and Kate are sixteen and going through some growing pains. They have always been each other's main companion and support. The personalities are complements of the other. Logan is the thoughtful, introspective twin and Kate is more bold and brash. But events that happened to Kate have changed her and she isn't sharing what happened with Logan who is feeling hurt and a little resentful.
When their parents decided that they should attend a camp which will be filled with other paranormals and which has the purpose of furthering understanding between the two groups, neither Logan or Kate are at all enthusiastic. Their expectations seem to be met when they arrive at the camp and find all sorts of weird things happening.
The camp director first wants them to keep the fact that they are werewolves secret but then outs them herself and is very prejudiced against them. The other campers seem weirdly aggressive and seem more interested in hooking up than getting to really know any of the others.
Kate's new roommate is a witch named Holly who is also finding the camp dynamics weird. Logan is assigned to Mason's room. Mason is keeping his affiliation secret but Logan soon comes to identify him as a vampire. Together, they make up the two most feared types of paranormals in the Otherworld. Meanwhile, Kate meets Elijah who is supposedly half demon but who she figures out is actually a werewolf in disguise. He is not Pack and really seems to resent Logan and Kate.
As tensions rise and their isolation grows even more pronounced, Logan, Kate, Holly, Elijah, and one of Kate's childhood flames Allen need to band together to figure out what is going on at the camp and how they can survive until help arrives.
The story was exciting. I liked Logan and Kate. I liked the snarky dialog and the way the kids interacted to make their discoveries. The action at the end of the book make this one a real page turner. And the cliffhanger ending makes me very eager to read the next book which should answer my many questions.
My only other issue was the cliff hanger. This isn't the first time she's broken one big story into several parts. Her other two otherworld youth series were each broken up into 3 separate books that continued the same story and she did the same with her last 2 or 3 main books in the adult otherworld series. The difference though is even though the main story line wasn't finished, that particular stage seemed complete. Again without trying to give too much away, this book seemed to stop in the middle of the story without anything really being accomplished.
I'll probably read the next one in the series just because I usually love her books, but as of right now, I don't think this story is ever one I'll re read.
I love Kelley Armstrong. I have almost every book she has ever written. She is an author -god that I shall always buy.......
But I failed to get the memo, along with many readers, that this book is a "cliffhanger".
To put it mildly, there is no closure, no ending, no nada; just a big yawning void. I never knew that was the definition of cliffhanger. The story is great, as her stories are. I was ecstatic that she brought the werewolf twins back for us.
I'm old school though, I need some form of closure even if many threads are left dangling for the next book.
As the author has told me (is it weird when an author lashes out at you to consider it a type of autograph?), she has been saying it is part 1 of 2 and we don't need to buy her books if this is a problem. Sadly, I wasn't in the loop on the lack of ending, or I definitely would have waited for book 2 before reading book 1.
My recommendation to any KA lovers that have not read this, wait...
And to anyone just reading KA for the first time, wait, pick one of her other great books first.
The fraternal werewolf twins are 16 now and their mother, the pack alpha, has decided that they will attend the supernatural youth leadership conference in West Virginia. But the camp is not what it seems.
Note, the book ends on a cliffhanger. Several people have complained but not me. I like cliffhangers.

As usual it is a first person narrative but it is told from both the lead characters perspectives. Our leads are the werewolf twins from the otherworld series. They are out on their own (away from the pack) at camp with other young supernaturals when things go wrong.
It's a good story but I think it needs some awareness of the Otherworld series to understand it as in a novella there isn't the space for too much backstory.
