Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

I am currently reading Trial by Fire by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. This is the sequel to Raised by Wolves and continues the adventures of these teenage werewolves. Here is the product description from Amazon:
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.
"No more school, no more books, no more teachers' dirty looks..."

For a two-hundred-twenty pound werewolf, Devon Macalister had a wicked falsetto.
Friday 56:
They say you help people. Callum's Bryn.


  1. I wonder what kind of help they give...
    Thanks for participating!

  2. I love that line about the werewolve's wicked falsetto! lol.

    Here's mine:

  3. Werewolf. That's what I meant...

  4. Original, I can't quite imagine a werewolf with a falsetto, and the first line would certainly appeal to young readers. Sounds like a good story. Enjoy. My BB post is up.

  5. exciting. i have this in my to read pile and looking forward to it.

  6. I love that opening!

    Great teaser!

    Here is my BBF :)

  7. Ah! I really enjoyed this book. I liked the first one, but Trial By Fire was even better. :-) Hope you're enjoying it!

  8. LOVE that beginning! Unfortunately, I'm old enough to remember the little rhyme, too. ;)

  9. LOL Fun beginning!
