One of the best, most original books in werewolf fiction. Bryn, the main character is not a werewolf, but a human who has been raised by werewolves after her family was killed by a lone wolf. She chaffs at the restrictions put forth by the Alpha her daily life is quite chaotic.
Her best friend is a Broadway loving teenage werewolf, and due to the fact she is Pack, she does not get close to other humans her age. It isn’t until she sees Chase, a teenage boy who had been bitten by the same wolf who took her family, that she feels she has found some answers to where she belongs.
Unlike most werewolf fiction Bryn doesn’t turn. Heck she doesn’t even consider it. She knows she has weaknesses as a human and she uses them to her advantage. She doesn’t cave to the pack mind she changes it.
Her best friend Lake is one of the few female werewolves around. This is one of my favorite characters in the book. Saying she loves guns is quite the understatement and is a master of deadpan humor.
While most of the book’s focus is on the relationship between Bryn and Chase, it is not in the teenage sex / angst way. There are some kisses but the meat of the book is Bryn finding the rogue wolf and dealing with the problems it brings her way. VERY good read.
