Goodreads Synopsis:

Fourteen-year-old Trey Laporte is not a kid anymore. Not after the day he wakes up in agony—retina-splitting, vomit-inducing agony. His clothes are torn. His room is trashed.
Enter Lucien Charron, the mysterious, long-lost “uncle” with freakish fire-flecked eyes and skin that blisters in the sun. Suddenly, Trey finds himself living in a luxury penthouse at the heart of a strange and sinister empire built on the powers of the Netherworld—vampires, demons, sorcerers, and djinn.
And there is a girl—Alexa Charron—who is half vampire, half human, and insanely pretty, with powers all of her own. Trey is falling for her.
Trey is training night and day to control the newly discovered power lurking inside him. Now, demons are closing in on every side, and the most psychopathic bloodsucker to rock the Netherworld wants to destroy him. Above all, he must face one terrifying question:
Is he a boy . . . or is he a beast?

My Thoughts:
I thought that Trey's character was well written. The loneliness and despair that Trey felt throughout the book came through in volumes. I really enjoyed Lucien as well. I thought that he took over his role as Trey's guardian well. He is very protective and I believed his character. I didn't really feel much for Alexa during book 1. I don't think that Steve focused a lot on her. I am hoping to see more of her in Dark Moon. But I thought that all of the character's were very well developed.

I that the villain could have had a bigger presence in the novel. But I believe that we haven't seen the last of him and I am hoping to see more of him in Dark Moon.  I really enjoyed the cliffhanger that Steve left us at the end of Wereling. He definitely has me wanting to read Dark Moon. 

I really enjoyed reading Wereling and I cannot wait for Dark Moon. I highly enjoyed this novel and really enjoyed reading more into Steve's world!

I Give this 4/5 Hearts!
