Jennifer Lynn Barnes tells a suspenseful story with plenty of action.
Bronwyn Alessia St. Vincent Clare should have died at age four when a
rogue werewolf came to kill her parents. Bronwyn or Bryn for short hid
and was saved by Callum, the alpha of the area. Callum is a thousand
year old werewolf with the largest pack of werewolves. Callum adopted
the human girl and raised her as wolf. Bryn rebelled and fought to
block out the pack way of life. Where the werewolves would never
disobey Callum Bryn pushed the limits by sneaking out, getting less than
straight As and might have borrowed a motorcycle when the owner wasnt
looking.



Barnes created a very intricate world with lots of back story. For
example werewolves are born and are mostly men. Female werewolves are
only born as a set of twins and most werewolves are born to human
mothers who rarely survive the birth.



Bryn was raised by Ali one of the human wives who is pregnant with
twins. Ali is only a few years older than Bryn and has always fought to
give her a normal life. When Ali goes into labor Bryn cant watch and
she escapes to the forest.



She eventually ends up at Callums house where she discovers a boy caged
in the basement. Chase is not only a boy but a new wolf who tells her
he was bitten before he turned. Chase shifts when he smells her fear and
crashes against the bars of his cage trying to feeding on her.



I really like that Bryn isnt a victim but a girl who can kicks a$$.
Since Callum claimed her as his when she came into the pack it
guaranteed her security, but she also had to learn to fight and survive
just in case something went wrong.



The story takes so many unexpected twist that I cant begin to describe
them. The moments Bryn shares with Callum are so emotionally charged.
One moment I wanted to yell at him and others I wanted to love him. I
was smitten with Chase from the moment he told Bryn Before the attack, I
liked cars, Yeats, having a bedroom that locked from the inside and
you can we say ahh! The ending was really surprising and unexpected.
One of the things I found a little creepy was how newborn wolves can
shift from wolf to human. If you thought baby vamps were creepy wait
until you meet the shifting wolves. Over all I thought the story was
great and I hope that there will be a second book because I can really
see this turning into a series.
