Well the spelling is definately better than the previous book which I count as a blessing. If it means anything I started this book at about 2 or 3 pm yesterday and well finished it today (which happens to be the next day). I probably would have finished this book earlier if I wasn't so tried. Anyways...The only thing I found to be problematic in this book was that alot of the problems you could pretty much guess what the outcome was before they happend like fore example Valerie turning out to be Ali's mother in the end. But besides that simple thing this book kept me entertained. The author dragged me into her world and kept me there flawlessly. I would have loved to have had a scene where Dev and Shay actually challenged one another but I guess that will come in the book or books that follow. I was sad when Maddy left but understood. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.

Bryn loves her new life with her pack - until a wolf enters her territory. He's badly hurt and he's asking for protection. With Shay as his Alpha, he's been used as a punching bag, until Shay gave him to a group of psychics. Bryn doesn't know what to do. She doesn't want to turn him away, but neither can she help him within the rules of the werewolves. She desperately tries to find a loophole in the rules.
Before she can figure out a solution, the psychics show up in town. A new girl starts at school, and Bryn knows she's a threat. Caroline isn't normal, she's a hunter. She can't be tracked and she never misses a target. She has the ability to take out Bryn's entire pack.
The psychics hate werewolves. Each time Bryn meets them, she learns more about them. With the psychics and Shay looking for a fight, Bryn needs to watch her back very carefully. She knows what's at stake, and she's not about to give in or give up her pack for anything.
I couldn't wait to read this book as I *loved* RAISED BY WOLVES! TRIAL BY FIRE was simply amazing. I loved the power of Bryn, and how her pack's different and how she as a human is different from the other Alphas. I love how she tries to see the loopholes in dangerous situations. I love how she doesn't ever want to play by the rules, and her sense of justice. Mostly, there isn't anything I don't love about Bryn. I love Lake, Chase, and Dev, too.
With this one, I laughed, I cried, and I had to re-read the ending twice to understand it. The ending absolutely blew me away - Im already looking forward to the third book in the series!
