    One thought on “Camille”

    1. I would like to start off this review with an apology: I misjudged this book harshly even before I had read it since (a) the excerpt I read reminded me of too many paranormal YA novels with flat heroines and domineering love interests, (b) it is a book about werewolves, who are almost as overused as vampires by now, and (c) it is an indie book (and I have a love/hate relationship with indie books since they fall into one of three categories -- brilliant, predictable, or just plain awful). I woul [...]

    2. **Note: I've edited this review since it was first written because I didn't like my snarky tone. :) It wasn't meant to be snarky, more comical/exasperated.**Camille finds herself in a unfortunate situation when she falls in love with a boy who is about to turn into a werewolf. I was very much looking forward to this book. Victorian Era England + Werewolves + strong, ass-kicking heroine = awesome. And the story did deliver on all of those facets, which was entertaining and a fun new take on a tri [...]

    3. If I had to describe this book in one word it would simply be: sweet. I was a little skeptical that this book could draw me in and keep me there in such few pages. But I am happy I gave it a chance. Camille is the story of a young girl living in England who hunts werewolves alongside Dr. Bennett, her guardian. Together they hunt beasts by night, but desperately continue to search for a cure by day. This endeavor becomes even more important when Camille and Dr. Bennett encounter Nathaniel Strider [...]

    4. “I quieted my trembling hands, swallowed to wet my dry throat, and cursed myself for becoming so ridiculously agitated at the sight of him. Perhaps Dr. Bennett would be better for this task.“ How right you are, you insufferable wench. For Dr. Bennett would not inform us on each and every page how aroused he became while watching the recently infected "specimen", homeless Whitechapel grave robber Nathaniel Strider, who would turn into a people-eating, brainless werewolf within a month and who [...]

    5. In short: a resounding 'meh'.This book came highly recommended by other GR reviewers, including Jillian, but I'm afraid between the time I bought it (several years ago) and the time I read it (last month) my tastes have changed, and what sounded appealing to me then did not appeal to me now. I blame college.In short: this is a young adult paranormal romance whose brooding love interest is a soon-to-be murderous werewolf. The concept is interesting, yes, and the idea of a crossdressing werewolf-h [...]

    6. This book was wonderful! Camille and her guardian, Dr. Bennett, hunt and study werewolves. It is an interest that was shared by her father until it killed him 6 years earlier. One night, while Camille and Dr. Bennett are out hunting a particular werewolf, they witness a young man is bit on the leg before they manage to take it down. Dr. Bennett sends Camille to follow the young man, Nathaniel, and see if he is being affected by the bite. It doesnt take long for Camille to see that all the women [...]

    7. Camille. Ah yes, Camille, the boy dresser, werewolf hunter, beautiful determined sprite of a girl. Assistant to Dr. Bennett, who raised her as his own when her father died years ago, where she aids him in his search for a cure for humans turning into werewolves. She soon finds herself desperately searching with new determination for a cure because now it’s the life a young boy that she has fallen in love with that is threatened. Enter Nathaniel Strider. Unscrupulous rogue, ladies man to the co [...]

    8. Okay so i love this book the ending was a tad predictable but it was a great book!!! the people were so real and historically accurate!! Strider is soo sweet and cocky i just love him!! the plotCamille and her for all intents and purposes Uncle are werewolf hunters in the late 1800's early 1900's. The story starts in a graveyard with grave robbers and one nasty werewolf who before Dr. Bennet (Camille's uncle) can shoot and kill the beast with a silver tipped bullet he bites the leg of Strider gi [...]

    9. I enjoyed the premise and the set-up for this book. Plucky, teenage Camille and her scholarly guardian are werewolf hunters in Victorian-era London. There's some family intrigue going on: since the death of their father, Camille's twin sister hides away in a mental asylum despite the fact she's more or less sane. The story starts when Camille and her guardian witness Strider, a grave-robbing boy from the streets, being bitten by a werewolf. They now have one month to try to save him by finally s [...]

    10. I'm sort of a sucker for a good period piece and for a strong female character and this book started out with both. It faltered, it wasn't perfect, but overall this book was strong enough that I enjoyed having read it.Camille does not lead a typical life for a young woman living in London in the 1800s. She dresses in trousers as a boy and spends her nights hunting werewolves with her guardian (which makes the cover a little confusing since she so rarely wears dresses). That is how she meets Nath [...]

    11. Okay, so I really enjoyed this book! From the start until the very end the story captivated me and it has great characters too!Camille and her guardian, Dr Bennett, are werewolf hunters. The story begins in a graveyard where the two are hunting a werewolf where they catch a bunch of thieves stealing from a grave. One of the thieves, a boy named Nathaniel Strider, gets bitten by the werewolf before Dr Bennett shoots it with a silver bullet. Camille is then sent to find this boy as Dr Bennett want [...]

    12. review originally posted at thatbookishgirl/2I stumbled across Camille while perusing the young adult paranormal romance NookBook section on Barnes and Noble. I’ll admit, this is pretty much a daily activity. I had not heard anything about the book before, but it sounded rather intriguing. So, with my trusty nook in hand I “previewed” the first few pages of the book. The preview was to my liking, so I went ahead and purchased it. Now, I am going to have to be honest with you – I put off [...]

    13. Sixteen-year-old Camille Kennecott and her guardian, Dr. Bennett, live a most unconventional life in London. They hunt werewolves.When unwitting victim, Nathaniel Strider, wanders into one of their full moon pursuits, Camille and Dr. Bennett believe they have found a specimen for their study.At first when I saw this book my kindle recommended it to me. (I worship that thing so how could I disobey what it wishes me to read.) The topic seemed almost completely cliche to me. Werewolves. What sparke [...]

    14. This book was much, much better than I expected when I spent all of $.99 on it.The story starts with Camille and her guardian Dr. Bennett hunting down a werewolf on a full moon, but before they can kill it, Nathaniel Strider gets bitten. Dr. Bennett and Camille have been looking for a cure for werewolves and decide Nathaniel would be of good use to finding a cure. As Camille get's closer to Strider, it becomes more and more crucial to cure him before the next full moon.The story doesn't pay much [...]

    15. I was expecting just a little bit more. As is, my feelings for Camille and Strider run along the lines of lukewarm. Where Strider’s story involves a love found and a love that-might-be-lost all because of his looming transformation, it is Camille’s contribution that is more specific, with a Doctor, a sister in an asylum and her wolf hunting. She’s another one of more independent, more intelligent and more kick ass girls… but not all the time because whenever Strider was in the picture sh [...]

    16. Camille and scientist Dr. Bennett are trying to find a cure for people who are attacked by werewolves. They must be treated before the next full moon or they will mutate into the monster that infected them. During one of their 'stake' outs, Camille and Dr. Bennett witness a group of grave diggers attacked by the beast they are stalking to kill. All of the grave diggers are killed except for one, Nathaniel Strider, who has been infected by the beast. Camille and the Dr. follow and eventually invi [...]

    17. This was a fun, clean read. The 16 year old didn't read like a 16 year old. I often thought she was much older because of her knowledge and self awareness. Not many characters though but the writing and word usage was beautiful and interesting. Only $0.99 on Kindle and 250 pages. A few times I kept reading into the middle of the night. I also liked the use of cellular biology - made me feel smart to understand what the Dr. was talking about. Not a deep book, but a fun book. All the characters h [...]

    18. Absolutely loved this book. the setting, the characters and the plot, everything was captivating. An the cover too is just gorgeous. Thats what first tempted me to read it.I loved the characters, specially Camille. She's brave, beautiful and when most girls her age think about dresses and parties, she's more concerned about hunting down werewolves. I also love her determination. thats pretty inspiring.Then there's Nathanial Strider. WOW! he's tough, passionate and lovable! also, i loved the sett [...]

    19. Worth so much more than the 99 cents I paid for it. Wow. In the beginning, it seemed this story and I would not be friends. The language seemed a little forced and thenenter Nathaniel Strider and I don't know, I guess his charming smile and roguish manner blinded me as well. Love, love the romantic tension and the depth of character and the strong sense of place. Tess Oliver really took me there and didn't need wordy prose to accomplish the task. Yea, I had some qualms but they were minor in com [...]

    20. I have mixed feelings about this book. I feel like the idea of this book was a little better than it's execution. Not to say that the writing was bad, per se. Parts of it had me really glued to the pages and it got more interesting to me the farther along I got. It's just that while I liked it, I'm not sure if I liked it enough to want to read the rest of the series. Perhaps it's the YA aspect of it that kept me from being as interested in it was I wanted to be. Then again, the ending sort of wr [...]

    21. The story jumps right into the werewolf hunting and slowly brings in Camille's past as the book progresses. I easily finished it in a day, not wanting to put it down. Camille is engaging and very likable. Strider sounds extremely handsome, warm with a hint of rakishness that is always appealing in a man. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to read a light and happy love story. I was surprised how much I liked this book. Tess Oliver created an enchanting cast of characters that had depth [...]

    22. This was a great little story that I totally enjoyed! The story flowed well. The characters were great, especially Nathaniel he was to swoon for! If you like werewolf stories don't miss this one! It's a .99 download on me mild language, lord name in vainclean romance- there were to instances early on that made me wonder if it was going to stay clean, but it was very minor and no detail.

    23. This is a love story that I really enjoyed reading. Set in London this good girl meets bad boy but with a wild twist!!! Thank you Tess for writing a great book!!!

    24. I liked the plot but the story moved too fast and the end was anticlimactic. Camille seemed older than her 16 years. But overall a cute YA novel.

    25. Good bookYou people should just read this book yourselves and write your own review on this novel yourself and I really enjoyed reading this book very much so. Shelley MA

    26. I promise to be brutally honest with my opinion, but it should not be taken as fact. Any reader should read it for themselves, before they decide if this book has any merit or not.Do not judge this book biased solely on my opinion.If you do, you might miss out on a great read. You never know. It could happen.1. Strong Main Character/ Female Heroine:Camille is a young woman with an iron will in the Victorian era. She is sweet and gentle hearted, but she is not naïve to the evils of the less pres [...]

    27. OHMIGOSH!!!!! Hmmjust a second please. *spins around in a circle while squealing and hugging book close to chest* Ahem. Okay. I simply adored this book. I went into the library down the road, with the hopes of finding a good book or two. I went to the teen section and picked out a few graphic novels and then walked around to see what other things were lying around. Set out on a little stand was this book. My eyes were caught instantly by the cover. I absolutely LOVE the dress she is wearing gorg [...]

    28. see more reviews jennreneeread/I accidently came across this book searching through kindle books on . I didn’t have prior knowledge of this book’s existence. I am usually hesitant at reading new books without seeing a rating on or reading a review. I know book snob. I read the synopsis on and thought it sounded like my kind of book. Werewolves, Romance, Suspense, I couldn’t ask for more, even though it did have the bonus of being a historical fiction, which I love. SO… I nabbed it and [...]
