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.

Willowgrove is a great conclusion to the Hemlock trilogy, I loved it!. This book is about werewolves a little different to which I´m used to read and in a world in which is public knowledge their existence, but this fact caused panic among humans, they´re afraid of these monsters, that´s why all known werewolves are round up and taken to concentration camps.

In the previous book Mac rescued her boyfriend Kyle and her friend Serena from a rehabilitation camp and she thought they were safe for the time being, but somehow they were found and this people want to recapture Serena, because she´s important to an experiment on Lupin virus. So once Mac and her friends are on the run and trying to stay safe, but things get complicated when in their city will be a rally that will bring together Trackers (those who hunt werewolves) and supporters of werewolves, so disturbances are anticipated and amidst all this is Mac and her friends.

Besides all her problems, Mac is still having strange and frightening dreams about her best friend Amy (which was killed in the first book by a werewolf), which could be leading her to discover a series of lies behind the origins of the Lupin virus.

Willowgrove was very engaging, because from the beginning is action-packed and fast-paced with some mystery that does not let go until you finish reading it. It has a very good ending where all the questions are answered, tying up loose ends and has an epilogue - which I love because I can see what happened to the main characters.


  1. It'd been so long since I read Hemlock that I can barely recall what happened in the first book. I need a refresher course.

  2. I read both Hemlock and Thornhill a while ago and have been meaning to grab a copy of Willowgrove! Great to hear that it is a good ending, I will try to read this one soon!
    Thanks for the review :-)

  3. I think this is a series I need to start reading! I love when the conclusions are just as good as the rest of the series!
