It’s not easy being a girl. It’s even harder when you’re the only girl in a family of werewolves. But it’s next to impossible when your very existence spells out the doom of your race… Meet Jessica McClain — she just became part of the pack.

In the vein of Kelley Armstrong and Patricia Briggs, a new urban fantasy that rewrites the werewolf myth…

Review:  I thought this was an interesting twist on the werewolf genre, and it’s certainly doesn’t follow the typical format.  Not only is the whole take on it different, but the writing style is as well.  And it all comes together perfectly.  I enjoyed the story, the characters, the myth from which Jessica has lived her whole life under, and just everything about this book.  And in the midst of all this upheaval in her life, of course that would be the moment when she meets her mate.

My only complaint is really the way it ended.  This is one of those books that just drops you off right in the middle of the major climactic moment – and leaves you guessing for the next one.  Those typically aren’t my favorite.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good series – and I love reading about all the characters and becoming a part of the whole world the characters live in.  But I believe there are better ways to end a book, leave you satisfied with the ending, AND still leave you on the edge wanting to know what happens next.  All without just dumping you off in the middle of a scene.

Barring that, it was a great book, and one I will that will keep me reading more from this great author.
