Waiting (really impatiently) on Wednesday: Trial by Fire, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

I simply cannot wait for this book.
Jennifer Lynn Barnes wrote the best modern-day, suburban paranormal that I have yet read: the style, the voice, the characters, all were spot-on - and the antagonist was downright chilling. I have high hopes for this sequel that I don't think will be disappointed.
I loved Raised by Wolves from the first paragraph on, and my only compunction about reading this next is that.... I'm scared of what might happen to Bryn. But that's not enough to stop me from reading on! I think I'm going to buy these books one of these days.

Publisher's blurb:


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.


Oh, Brynnie! I am very worried now.
Tell me it isn't long till June 14th!
