Before I even start this review, I need to admit that I’m not a werewolf fan. I’m also not a fan of series that change main characters in each book. I only read this because the vampires I enjoyed reading about in Book 1 will be back in Book 3, and this book, despite being about different main characters, was an important part of the overall story. So take my review with a grain of salt, especially if you are a fan of those things.
Ok, so, here was my first issue: I thought these characters were terrible people. I mean, maybe that was the point—they’re NOT people, so they have different morals. But take the vampires in this series, for example. Yes, they kill, but they don’t terrorize their food before doing so. They find someone, lure them outside, then drain them. And as far as murder goes, that seems like a rather humane method. These werewolves though? They kidnap innocent humans before every full moon, keep them in the stables at the pack’s farmhouse for days, then release them (the humans) as they (the weres) are shifting so that they can chase down the humans and savagely tear them apart because it’s fun. That was how the book started. And maybe it’s just the lack of werewolf experience talking, but it tainted my opinion of them right from the start. I’m sure readers who like their werewolves portrayed as less human-like will appreciate that though.
Moving onto the individual characters… Much like the first book, this one had three POVs, and I’m not sure who the protagonist was or if there was one. The blurb makes it sound like Carson will be the protag, but he was hot-headed and manipulative and caused all the problems, so I’m not sure what he was. He was interesting though in the sense that he was like a villain who convinced himself he was a hero. The possible change of heart he had seemed random though. Then there was Kaleb, the pack alpha; he was more level-headed and cared about his pack members. There was also Priya, but she didn’t have much impact on the story. Vince was not a POV character, but he had a big part, and I did feel bad for how he must’ve felt growing up in a pack but turning out human. Spencer (a vampire from Book 1) also had a big part despite not being a POV character this time. These books are so short though, and there have been three different POV characters in each book, so I feel like I don’t know any of the characters as well as I want to, even though some of them seem interesting.
This book did have a more focused plot than the first one though, so that was good.
Overall, this book expanded on the supernatural world the author has created and introduced some new potentially interesting characters and storylines, and I do plan on continuing because I want to read more about the vampires and to find out what happens with the Spencer-August relationship, Vince’s decision, and the overall story.

Original Review @ Metaphors and Moonlight (link in profile)
First of all, I would like to say the beginning was a bit dark. I get werewolves are not human so therefore they don't act that way but geez. The story started with the wolves abducting people and keeping them in a stable so they could hunt them later. They literally released them so they could hunt them down and rip them to pieces. One part of me liked that the werewolves were shown as the animals that they can be but the other part of me is still hiding behind her fingers.
Like book one there were three main POVs. I liked Kaleb a lot, he seemed so level-headed compared to the hot head Carson. Carson just seemed to cause so many problems and it was really annoying. He needed an alpha like Kaleb in his life. I didn't really understand why Priya had a POV but Vince didn't. Was it because he was a human? I think I would have preferred Vince but whatever. I was glad to see Spencer the vamp again.
I really like this series as a whole. I will absolutely read the next book to see more of my vampires storylines. I recommend this series to lovers of the supernatural.
The plot - an intrigue set to start a war against the ever-present enemy, i.e. vampires - was interesting enough and allowed the introduction of yet another kind of supernatural creature, which we may read of more in future installments of the series.
While the first part 'Teeth' had more original bite to it, 'Meat' is a worthy sequel, and I'm curious which kind of supernatural creature we will meet in the third book and if the fragile truce between vampires and wolves will finally be broken.
(Thanks to the author for an advanced copy of the book, all opinions are my own)
