Willowgrove is Kathleen Peacock's riveting conclusion to the Hemlock trilogy, a dark, romantic, paranormal suspense series that pits friendship against survival, and trust against love.

Ever since Mac's best friend, Amy, was murdered, Hemlock has been a dangerous place. But now that Mac, her boyfriend, Kyle, and Amy's ex, Jason, have investigated a mass breakout from Thornhill, a werewolf "rehabilitation" camp, the danger has only grown. Fear of the infection spreading is now at an all-time high, and anyone with a scar is suspected of being a wolf.

What makes Mac even more afraid, though, are the dark experiments that the warden of Thornhill was performing on wolves in a secret asylum called Willowgrove. Uncovering the truth about what happened may be the only way for Mac to save everyone she loves and end her nightmares for good.

One of my favourite paranormal series has come to an end, and I’m thrilled to say that it ended well! I was a bit scared of reading Willowgrove after being forced to chug through some terrible series-enders (looking at you, Ruin & Rising) but Kathleen Peacock pulled everything off pretty well and it reached a nice conclusion.

Mac can’t lose another friend. Even if he doesn’t want to be found.
The ripple effect caused by Mac’s best friend Amy’s murder has driven Mac’s new love, Kyle, to leave Hemlock and disappear from her life forever. But Mac knows that Kyle plans to enroll in a rehabilitation camp, where he can live with other werewolves. She refuses to accept his decision, especially since the camps are rumored to be tortuous. So she sets out in search of Kyle with a barely sober Jason—and Amy’s all-seeing ghost—in tow.
Clues lead Mac to find Kyle in a werewolf den in Colorado—but their reunion is cut short by a Tracker raid. Now Mac and Kyle are trapped inside the electric fences of Thornhill, a camp for young werewolves. As she devises an escape plan, Mac uncovers dangerous secrets buried within the walls of Thornhill—and realizes that the risk to the people she loves is greater than ever before.
Some rooms looked better in the dark.

I can’t believe Thornhill is finally out! It feels like I’ve been waiting for it for years. Kathleen Peacock, y u no write faster? Are you too busy watching Doctor Who? Ehem. So, anyway, I adored Hemlock, so much so that I recommended it to Tatum. I was actually surprised that she loved it so much, because she does have trouble with some YA and first person perspectives. Weird, right? But she adored Hemlock as much as I did, so that was, to me, a sign from the heavens that Peacock is as fabulous as I thought she was.
