Other Books In The Series: Raised By Wolves

There can only be one alpha. 

Bryn is finally settling into her position as alpha of the Cedar Ridge Pack—or at least, her own version of what it means to be alpha when you’re a human leading a band of werewolves. Then she finds a teenage boy bleeding on her front porch. Before collapsing, he tells her his name is Lucas, he’s a Were, and Bryn’s protection is his only hope.

But Lucas isn’t part of Bryn’s pack, and she has no right to claim another alpha’s Were.  With threats—old and new—looming, and danger closing in from all sides, Bryn will have to accept what her guardian Callum knew all along. To be alpha, she will have to give in to her own animal instincts and become less human. And, she’s going to have to do it alone.

What I Have To Say

I loved the society and culture of the were-wolves in Raised by Wolves, but that was nothing to the sequel. I really fell in love with everything about it. I still love the things I loved before, the ways she's made the wolves and the pups, but in this book I loved everything. The characters, the plot, everything. 

The way everyone treats Bryn was also really cool. The respect and love that the wolves hold for Bryn as Alpha is just... right. It can't really be described as anything else, everything in the series just fits together in a way that completely makes sense and is right for the society. 

Then there's the psychics, who were so interesting. They really kept the intrigue up and I enjoyed learning more about them and the twistedness of the coven. 

If you haven't started this series yet, please go and read it, you won't regret it.
