Présentation de l'éditeur

One stupid party. One stupid boy. One stupid kiss. And my life was virtually over.
Tessa McCaide has a unique talent for getting into trouble. Then again, it isn’t easy for a girl with visions to ignore what she sees. Luckily Tessa and her family are leaving California and moving halfway across the country, giving her the perfect opportunity to leave her reputation as “Freaky Tessa” behind.
But Tessa doesn’t realize that kissing the wrong guy in her new Texas town could land her in far more trouble than she ever imagined. Like being forced to attend St. Ailbe’s Academy, a secret boarding school for werewolves.
Even if the wrong guy did accidentally turn her into one of “them” and doom her to attending the weirdest high school ever, Tessa can’t help her growing attraction to the mysterious Dastien Laurent.
When vampires attack St. Alibe’s and her visions pinpoint an enemy in their midst, Tessa realizes that boy drama and her newfound canine tendencies might just be the least of her problems.

Visions, télépathie, sortilèges, werewolves, vampires avec des combats et une belle histoire d'amour...Je me suis régalée!

Un roman parfait en ce jour d'Halloween puisque l'auteur utilise de nombreux éléments surnaturels pour peupler sont récit. Et même s'il y a des werewolves et des vampires, cela n'a rien à voir avec Twilight. Peut-être un peu avec l'ambiance d'Alyxandra Harvey dans son academie dans "The Drake Chronicles."

L'intrigue est bien faite. Elle m'a conquise dès le départ et pousser à tourner les pages car je voulais savoir comment Tessa aller se faire mordre et devenir un loup. C'est peut-être la partie la plus frustrante car la morsure arrive au pire des moments...Là, où le lecteur commence à fondre pour le héros!

J'ai aimé les personnages principaux et secondaires. Ils sont drôles, touchants dans leurs réactions excessives. Imogène est une peste exceptionnelle. Les mâles toujours en compétitions pour marquer leurs territoires et Tessa est une jeune femme comme je les aime. Une héroïne à forte de tête qui ne se laisse pas marcher sur les pieds et ose défendre ses idées, ses convictions et avouer ses faiblesses.

Quant à l'intrigue, elle est originale dans la manière dont l'auteur la présente, l'agrémente en variant l'aspect romantique, les scènes de combats et les rebondissements.

Franchement, cela faisait longtemps que je ne m'étais pas autant amusé. Les personnages valent le coup, l'intrigue donne envie de tourner les pages. C'est vivant, rythmé, varié. J'ai passé un super moment!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Torn :/ 11 mars 2014
Par JustMe23 - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Eehhh I am a bit torn on this book. The writing was ok despite a few strangely worded sentences. I found that a few things contradicted each other and it bothered me. The heroine apparently never had friends yet she was completely outspoken and snarky whenever she opened her mouth. This was completely the opposite of the shy introverted girl the author leads you to believe. Tessa says that the werewolf school was full of people from all over the world yet besides two known Irish characters everyone had a Spanish last name or spoke in Spanish often.The group did not seem to be as diverse as the author claimed. The connection between Tessa and Dastien was nonexistent to me. Whenever they weren't running away from each other they were awkward to me. I am usually the type of person who needs to see a series through however I was so irritated by Tessa that I just wanted the book to be over. I don't think I will purchase the next book and I wouldn't recommend the book to anyone over 16

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A great introduction to Aileen Erin’s werewolves and a brilliant debut by this new author! 17 décembre 2013
Par RabidReads - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
I went into this book thinking it was YA only to be pleasantly surprised by its New Adult story line. It reminded me of Jennifer Estep’s Mythos Academy series in a lot of ways; both Gwen and Tessa are gifted with “touch” magic and despite being newbies in their respective universes, both girls quickly trump their peers in the power department without having to undergo years of training. There are a few major differences of course, the main one being their supernatural type, St. Alibe’s is a school for werewolves not ancient warriors. The similarities between these two fictional worlds made it easy for me to submerse myself in Becoming Alpha; everything felt familiar yet new at the same time. I loved this book and I’ll definitely be back for more in May!

I like that Aileen Erin gave readers a chance to get to know Tessa before she gets bitten; I enjoyed learning what her life was like pre-werewolf. Changing schools is never easy but McCaide tries to make the most of it by seeing her move to Texas as an opportunity for a fresh start. Things seem to be going well for her when she makes a new friend and gets invited to a party. I so wanted her to have a little “normal” in her life before the inevitable but unfortunately for her, it just wasn’t in the cards. Her first kiss turns into her worst nightmare and things quickly spiral out of control from there. I thought that Tessa handled herself rather well, all things considered.

One of my favourite things about starting any new series is learning about the author’s mythology and Erin’s werewolf lore is rich and fascinating. I enjoyed learning about the hierarchy within the pack and the differences between alphas and Alphas. I also found the bitten vs born angle to be quite interesting, that and the rarity of females went a long way in convincing me of Tessa’s importance within the Alpha Girl universe. Both these elements aren’t exactly new ideas in the werewolf genre but Aileen presents them in such a way that you can’t help but enjoy the ride. The pack’s gender stereotypes weren’t overly surprising given the male to female ratio but I enjoyed Tessa’s resistance to her and Dastien’s mate bond. There’s definitely no insta-love in this book; she makes him work for it!

I enjoyed the secondary characters as much, if not more than the main ones. Meredith, Tessa’s new BFF, is everything that a girl could want in a friend. She’s an oddball herself which makes it easy for her to sympathize with McCaide but instead of allowing her roomie to wallow in self-pity, she helps her to embrace her new, furry reality. I loved Axle too, Tessa’s big brother, and how supportive their parents are of their newly turned daughter. It was refreshing to see good role models for once in a genre that is usually quick to throw them under the bus. I actually rather enjoyed Imogene as well, this story’s mean girl. She definitely deserved the ass kicking McCaide gives her but I think she’s a redeemable character and I was happy with how the author ended things between them.

Becoming Alpha is a great introduction to Aileen Erin’s werewolves and a brilliant debut by this new author!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Lackluster romance in an urban fantasy setting 29 mars 2014
Par Lost in Denver - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book really didn't have much going for it. The plot and setting was pretty uninspired, and none of the characters were all that interesting. The relationship between Tessa and her brother was probably the best done portion of the book, but it certainly wasn't enough to save it. What I was hoping would be an urban fantasy novel with romantic elements turned out to be a really insipid romance with urban fantasy garnish. The relationship between Tessa, the protagonist, and the insanely obvious love interest was so cliche that I couldn't get all the way through the book. When the author has to resort to more than one of the cookie-cutter plot devices (in this case, "Oh, I had a vision of the dreamy boy" and "But my random totem animal chose her!") to create a couple rather than creating actual chemistry, it means the author isn't really trying. The secondary characters aren't very interesting, and the primary character goes from "I am independent and snarky, hear me roar," to "I just want the dreamy boy" over the first part of the book. In other words, she becomes less interesting as the story goes on, and that isn't helped that the story (basically more of a high school Mean Girls than actual urban fantasy) wasn't all that interesting to begin with.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awesome plot and believable characters - Series to watch! 18 décembre 2013
Par Literary George - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
WERHOOOOO! I love love love love love this book! Another wonderful novel that is able to walk the fine line between youthful characters and mature writing. I was worried this would be another run of mill tween romance novel with a werewolf twist and if you're being a butt you could apply it to this novel - even though it isn't! There is a solid realness to the writing of Erin - a depth to her story and characters that has you hooked from page one. I could barely put the book down to go toilet I was THAT hooked. Tessa is the perfect leading lady with just enough sass and just enough insecurity. She isn't willing to suddenly accept werewolves as a sure thing even though she was slightly supernatural to begin with. She keeps her distance from Dastien because the freaky hot guy bit her and why the hell would she want to get to know him after that?! Erin writes Tessa so well I had no difficulty becoming so ridiculously involved and concerned for Tessa's well-being I was giving stern glares and unnecessary quips to my Kobo.
Tessa's relationship with Dastien is also created beautifully. I can't tell you how sick I am of young characters suddenly falling in love for no better reason than chemisty, destiny or "we were meant to be together I could feel it" bollocks. Giving readers unrealistic expectations of love in real life by creating no basis or friendship for a romantic relationship beyond burning passion and a hunch. BAH! What I love about this book is that Erin establishes a connection between Tessa and Dastien without exaggerating it into an inexplicable bond. Erin creates the space for the characters to build a friendship, trust and find common interests in addition to being drawn together. I have always known the best character relationships are built through the book not decided in an instant and Aileen Erin gets it right on her first go.
This book is a wonderful shifter romance fiction for teens but also for the slightly older young adults like me. It has a great plot with wicked characters and an author that refuses to sacrifice maturity to create youthful writing ("omg, like totally" offenders I'm looking at you). If this series doesn't blow up to be awesome then I am going to personally shove it under the noses of anyone who looks like they would enjoy it. I can't wait for the next book in the series and Aileen Erin has firmly dug out a place among my favourite authors. Now go buy a copy because only good things can happen from here!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Too similar to Twilight 7 janvier 2014
Par bethany Huang - Publié sur
It seemed interesting; a girl with the power to read thoughts, memories, feelings from items and people. And it was, with the mysterious St. Aibe's school in the new town Tessa moved to. I really wanted to like Tessa. She seemed like an outsider who simply wanted to feel accepted, but soon she morphed into the typical teenage girl waiting to see the guy she didn't even know after one conversation. Soon after that, it wasn't hard to see through the guise; Tessa, with her screen print t shirts, was not an outsider. She was like Bella Swan, looking into a supernatural world from the normal one. The only difference was that Bella's unique power came later and Tessa had always had hers.

Much like Twilight, Tessa goes from being a pawn to a queen on the chessboard; she is no longer someone who has to be protected, but someone who protects- but only with the help of her superhuman powers. The world of werewolves was pretty unique with its necessary amounts of food, social hierarchy, and imprinting, but time after time I felt myself thinking back to Twilight. Every obstacle's main purpose was to prevent Tessa from being with Dastien, the guy that she liked, and nothing else. When Tessa and Dastien had issues, much like Bella (once again), she was rash and committed petty acts just to catch his attention.

Even though Tessa fought against the werewolve's somewhat sexist rules, she eventually gave into them. She was spunky and her brashness made her interesting until her only focus was beating out the "mean girl" of the werewolf clan and winning Dastien. She was strong in her beliefs but weak in her actions.

This book lacked what I like to see in books that I read- a self respecting character and a worthwhile theme. It's lemon meringue pie with extra fluff meant for the likes of those who have full out wars over Team Edward or Team Jacob, but it's not for those who are looking for a Harry-Potter-worthy book.
