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.
Bryn faces both the costs, and the rewards, of love and loyalty, in this thrilling sequel to Raised by Wolves.
I enjoyed this book even more that the first one. Of course you have to read the first one to get all the background but the continuation of the characters and how they further develop is wonderful. Still deciding if I like the way it ended.
Would you try another book from Jennifer Lynn Barnes and/or Eileen Stevens?
Yes. Reading her books is a pleasure but having to deal with the jumpy volume is a pain.
Who was your favorite character and why?
What didn’t you like about Eileen Stevens’s performance?
Volume control! Jumps so much from introspection to conversation it's painful.
Could you see Trial by Fire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Any additional comments?
