Review: In the Mouth of the Wolf (Twin Willows Trilogy #2) by Nicole Maggi

Summary-
A continuation of the Twin Willows Series that began with WINTER FALLS...
The Twin Willows Waterfall is now under the control of the Benandanti, but for Alessia, the victory comes at a steep price. And the arrival of Nerina, one of the seven Concilio elders from the Friuli Clan, only complicates her life. Now she’s hiding a 450-year-old immortal on her farm, juggling school and her increasingly frustrated friends, and trying to keep the Malandanti from regaining the Waterfall. But it’s the passion that still lingers between her and Jonah that really keeps Alessia awake at night.
After a fatal visit from the Malandanti’s mage, Alessia brings in Jonah’s twin sister, Bree, to serve as a Benandanti spy. Bree has her own reasons for wanting to bring down the Malandanti, and soon she and Alessia find themselves in a tenuous alliance. But not even the powerful magic that Bree possesses nor the strong leadership that Nerina provides can stop the vicious Malandanti. As the two Clans barrel towards their inevitable collision, Alessia and Jonah are swept into the devastation and forced to make the ultimate choice.
 

Review-
The quote on the cover of this book reads "The highly anticipated sequel..." They must have been talking about me! I read Winter Falls last year and loved it--I couldn't WAIT for book two to come out. I wasn't disappointed. In The Mouth of the Wolf is even better than I could have hoped for. In book one, we meet shape-shifting Benandati heroine, Alessia, her forbidden Malandanti boyfriend, Jonah, and Jonah's angry, emo twin sister, Bree. In book two, the problems that the three teens face because of their respective shape-shifting clans get even more exhilarating and dangerous. The choices they make are brave, bold, and far more adult than a teen should have to make. Relationship problems, family issues, deep secrets kept from best friends, In The Mouth Of The Wolf delves even deeper into the secret world of the ancient Benandati and Malandati clans and illustrates the difficulty of being a supernatural creature at night, while being a normal teen during the day. Author Nicole Maggi relates so well to the teenaged crowd while creating a magical story of good and evil, magical creatures and mystical lands. Thoroughly enchanting story!
