Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on 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.
Bryn faces both the costs, and the rewards, of love and loyalty, in this thrilling sequel to Raised by Wolves. (Summary from Amazon)
I read the first book Raised by Wolves almost a year ago and really enjoyed the new spin on the werewolf genre - you can read my review here - so I'm super excited to see what happens next in this series. If Ms. Barnes continues in the same vein I'm pretty sure that it'll be rock star.
