Blog Tour: The Night Has Teeth (The Magdeburg Trilogy #1) by Kat Kruger
There’s a darkness that lurks in the City of Light
Seventeen-year-old Connor Lewis is chased by a memory. On his first day of kindergarten he bit a boy hard enough to scar the kid for life. Since then he’s been a social outcast at a New York private school.
Through an unexpected turn of good fortune, he lands a scholarship to study in Paris, where everything starts to look up. On the first day he befriends two military brats, and he may finally get a taste of what it’s like to be a normal teenager.
It doesn’t last.
His host family — an alluring young tattoo artist and her moody, handsome boyfriend — inadvertently introduce him to the underworld of werewolves where there are two types: the born and the bitten. Those born to it take the form of elegant wolves, while the latter are cursed to transform into the half-man, half-beast creatures of horror movies. The bitten rarely survive. Unfortunately, Connor is on the wanted list of a four hundred-year-old bitten human who’s searching for both a cure and a means of wiping out werewolves for good.
Connor’s loyalties are tested as he becomes embroiled in a conflict where werewolves, mad science and teen angst collide.

Urban fantasy novel about werewolves in Paris? Yes Please!
Connor Lewis has not found it easy in life to make friends. After experiencing some less than pleasant things at his American schools, his parents decide it may be best to send him to boarding school abroad. But who knew that this particular school was crawling with werewolves.
Upon arriving to his new school Connor does not find it hard to find new friends. He is welcomed into a group with open arms, but soon discovers that this seemingly normal group of kids is more than he bargained for. But he builds relationships with each of them, forming strong bonds before finding out their secret.
He soon finds out that it's not your conventional werewolf that he's dealing with. There is a mad scientist causing problems and an ongoing battle between the werewolf groups as well.
This is not your typical werewolf story. A coming of age story? Sure. A urban fantasy with rival werewolf groups? Check. A creepy alter-ego'd scientist with a villainous plan? Yep, and so much more.
The city of Paris plays more than just a setting in the story. The travels through the city and underground play a huge role in the storyline. As well as the fact that the group of people that Connor comes into contact with throughout the story are all in their own, each a valuable addition to the plot. My favorite being Madison and her very real emotions that any reader will drawn to.
A fast paced story with twists that will shock and grip you until the last page.
