Welcome to Harmony Review

Title: Welcome to Harmony

Author: Dan Trumpis

Pages: 303

Rating: 4/5

Loved the book and thought it was way too short! I wanted more action and stuff! Reading this book you forget that he's twelve unless he (and others) are playing video games. Which happens a lot in this book. Despite that I really enjoyed this book and I'm so glad I won it on Goodreads! I never would've known about it if I hadn't signed up to win it. Love werewolves!
Dillon is a twelve year old who just moved to Harmony after living in L.A. where he makes friends for the first time. Like any other school it has bullies but what he is more concerned with people looking at him like they know him. How could they possibly know him? Oh yeah, he's a werewolf and when he changes in front of three boys only one is shocked. The other two were vampires but before a fight could break out Brody (werewolf) breaks it up.
Now it seems like Dillon's world is filled with vampires, werewolves (or lupoi), faeries, gargoyles (*jumping up and down* XD), sorcerers, sorceresses, etc.. Miles (human) is brought into the loop since he was there when the fight almost started. Brody and his sister Brenna (also a lupoi) along with Gabby (sorceress) help Dillon cope and learn about everything. Brody and Brenna's parents are the leaders of the pack so he joins them in protecting the town. (Is that cool or what?)
Julian (vampire) tries to become friends with them and Patrick (also a vampire) has already become friends with them because of the ghost he is friends with. One big happy family of friends right? Wrong! But it seems that way until Miles goes missing from school and it's the ghost who is the one that tells them what's going on. Super lucky he was there! Dillon rushes off to help Miles but what he finds is something he never expected to see.
Has Julian managed to turn Miles into an evil vampire? Will Miles kill his father? Or will someone come and help Miles and Dillon before it's too late?
Loved the main characters though I think it's a bit too early for twelve-year-olds to start dating or thinking about romance. Seriously! Way too young for them especially when the character is just learning stuff about himself. Overall it was a great book and I'm looking forward to reading more by this author! :D
