Trial by Fire by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Raised by Wolves #2

Being a human alpha to a pack of young werewolves isn't easy. Other packs still aren't happy about what happened. Shay in particular has a grudge. When one of his wolves shows up in Bryn's territory beaten bloody, Bryn and her pack get more than they bargained for. Lucas is on the run not from his pack, but from a group of psychic wolf haters. Just when Bryn thinks they have a chance, circumstances change. Is she strong enough?

What I thought: Okay, so the above is not the best summary, but I didn't want to give anything away. I liked this sequel to Raised by Wolves. Bryn is definitely coming into her own. The romance/connection between Bryn and Chase takes a backseat to the pack dilemmas, but that doesn't make the book any less interesting. Dev is still providing the comic relief. The mystery element was well done. Like Bryn, I had no clue until it was all over. The lack of Callum in this book was a little sad. The last three chapters were particularly fantastic. I can't wait to read the next book (due out next year and currently untitled).
