Tantalize: Kieren's Story (ARC) by Cynthia Leitich Smith {Mini Review}

Tantalize: Kieren's Story
As a hybrid werewolf, Kieren is destined to join an urban Wolf pack and learn to master his shift. Soon, he’ll leave everything behind: home, school, his family, and Quincie, his human best friend . . . who’s beginning to be a whole lot more than a friend. For years, Kieren has managed to keep his desires— and his wolf— at bay. But when the chef at Quincie’ s family restaurant is brutally murdered, Kieren resolves to be there for her, even if it means being framed. Even if it means watching Quincie’s beloved restaurant morph into a vampire lair. But when the new chef begins wooing her, how long can Kieren control his claws? How long can he protect Quincie— and himself? In an elegant graphic edition featuring cinematic sequential art by debut artist Ming Doyle and lush, romantic cover art by Sam Weber , bestselling author Cynthia Leitich Smith re-envisions her delicious dark fantasy through wolfish eyes.

I adored the Tantalize trilogy by Cynthia Leitich Smith, and when I heard there was going to be a graphic novel--where the story is told through Kieren's voice--I just had to have a copy of my own, and was lucky enough to receive this ARC. The artwork by Ming Doyle is gorgeous. The novel basically recaps everything that went on with Kieren in the background while Quincie was in the foreground in the book Tantalize. And we get a much deeper understanding for Kieren's feelings for Quincie, which I found utterly romantic. There's also danger and lots of action that kept me on the edge of my seat...even though I already knew what was going to happen!
