Trial by Fire
By Jennifer Lynn Barnes
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.

“So," I said climbing to my feet and changing the subject ASAP, "I had a dream last night someone tried to burn me alive, and I'm not entirely sure it was a dream."
Devon stiffened. Chase's pupils pulsed.
Subject successfully changed.
"Now who's ready to eat?”
"Ouch!'' The cry escaped before I could stop it, and on either side of me, Chase and Devon leapt to their feet.
''Problem?'' Ali asked mildly, amusement dancing in the corners of her eyes. Given the whole Casey thing, I didn't think she had to call to be in such a good mood, but what did I know?
''No problem,'' I said darkly, rubbing my shin ''Somebody just accidentally kicked me under the table.'' I narrowed my eyes at lake, and she helped herself to another T-bone And smothered it in stake sauce.
''Wasn’t an accident'' She said cheerfully.
''Lake'' Mitch didn’t say any more than his daughters name and she rolled her eyes.
''It’s not like I shot her''
"Did you follow me here?" I asked.
Lake shrugged. "The word follow seems to suggest you got here first."
Although this book was not even close to being as good as the first, it was still pretty good. The thing that disappointed me the most was, how this book lacked ability to turn the page for you, not literally but metaphorically.
Another let down was the story line. It was no where near as fast paced or interesting as it could have been. Definitely could have been better, much better. But I won't let it deter me from reading more of Jennifer Lynn Barnes' work.
It was alright... I guess
