SKULK – ROSIE BEST
Goodreads: 4.08 stars
Amazon: (No Ratings)
My Rating: 7/10
Skulk is an imaginative and compelling story about a budding graffiti artist – Meg, who sneaks out one night to deface a wall on her school’s property with a political message. Instead, when the image is finished, Meg witnesses a fox dying. The fox then transforms into a man, and from there on in it only gets weirder, and more dangerous.
I loved this book because it had such a wide range of characters and personalities, who all had their own stories. From Don, who has had the shapeshifting ability in his family for generations, to James Farrringdon, renowned thief. Another thing I really enjoyed was the descriptions of the heightened senses and unfamiliar feelings when Meg shapeshifts, making the story more believable and altogether more interesting to read. Meg definitely became one of my favourite heroines; she was different in less of a flawed way, more in an everyday human way. She wasn’t perfect, but that was okay. She developed through the story, became more of her own person. I would have liked to see more development with Don however, I feel like this would happen later on in the series. Maybe he isn’t giving up his unique personality yet!
I will definitely be looking forward to reading more books in the series.
