Format: Hardcover
When I read Jennifer Barnes' novel Raised by Wolves I was blown away. She created the fiercest, most loyal and amazing heroine then threw her to the wolves (haha) and we the readers anxiously awaited the next page, wondering what Bryn would do, how she would persevere. I was so amazingly happy when I found out that Trial by Fire was coming out. I wanted to see what Bryn would do with her small pack; she is now an alpha, and very powerful in her own right.

Trial by Fire is the honing of Bryn and her pack. It's about going through the flames and coming out the other side better, wiser and sharper, even harder. Barnes puts Bryn's pack against not only rouge wolves, but also a coven of psychics. Then of course we must remember that Bryn is like no alpha before her... not only is she a female, but also human. Certain rules don't apply to her, while others apply more strictly. But as we learned from the last book, Bryn is nothing if not brilliant, and has lived to find a way to bend the rules, or loopholes around them. Certain dynamics of the pack change when she finds a hurt were and brings him in, Chase doesn't trust him, and Bryn doesn't know what to do about not only the new were, but her bond with Chase.

I have to say though that Raised by Wolves and Trial by Fire is not for the young. It's also not for readers who are uncomfortable with some brutality. I feel this is important to point out because in the first book Callum was brutal to Bryn in fact she was beaten raw after she went against pack and her alpha's orders. A lot of readers really hated that part, though I felt it was necessary.

I really enjoy this serious, it has depth, great plot, and characters you know and care about, plus the added bonus it's a romance. This story takes off were it left off.Bryn is Alpha of the Cedar Ridge Pack, and getting accustomed to what that means to her the human non werewolf girl. I really like Bryn she is spunky, smart, speaks her mind, cares about whats hers, has a big heart, and is willing to sacrifice. She has lots of responsibility to her pack, and she takes it seriously. This story has an appearance of a mysteries girl, and a mysterious wolf boy who shows up on their front doorstep. Who is this mysterious boy who as been beaten, who sent him and why. This story was a tangled web of pure adventure and mystery and I loved every moment of it. The ending through me for a loop I had no idea that was going to happen! Bryn uses her wits, smarts and knowledge she has learned from dear old Cullen to unravel all the threats facing her and her pack, it takes time and is a process that we the reader get to enjoy right along with Bryn. There is a wonderful romance to to this story, being Chase and Bryn, I love their deep connection, like they know what each other needs before it is even spoken. Chase is beautiful, tortured, strong, gentle, and swoon worthy. Chase is a perfect match for Bryn he is her quite strength. I love Ms. Barnes writing style, great description, words flow smoothly from the pages. Great sequel and I hope PLEASE LET THERE BE A THIRD BOOK!! from what I could find there is no definite third book yet. So, so good!!

Trial by Fire by Jennifer Lynn Barnes is the sequel to Raised by Wolves (see my review) and follows Bryn, Chase, Devon, and Lake into their new pack with Bryn as their chosen alpha. As a human in a werewolf world, she faces a unique set of challenges. When a young shifter shows up, broken, on her front porch, she has to deal with the politics of rival packs. His alpha has set in motion a devious plot to undermine her pack, and steal her female wolves.

I liked this novel because it had so many layers. Nothing was ever quite what it seemed, and Bryn was so far out of her depth in political maneuvering. But she perseveres, trying her hardest to protect her wolves. Devon, Chase, and Lake are so devoted to her and to their pack, and they stick by her through everything. Author Jen Barnes does a terrific job with keeping each of her characters vivid and witty.

I have to say, though, I love the dynamic between Chase and Bryn. Bryn puts pack above everything, even her own health or life. For Chase, though, Bryn is his world. Pack in the abstract meanings nothing to him, only her. His intensity and clarity of sight help her in more ways than one.

Trial By Fire is a stunningly beautiful and deliciously complex story, fascinating us with the challenge of harnessing our own conflicting emotions as we read, and keeping us on edge as to what we'll be made to feel next. We're often both comfortable with Bryn and her pack and, at the same time, acutely uncomfortable as we wait with breath held for the inevitable trouble to come knocking. We also both love the unpredictability and uncertainty as to exactly what is going to happen while cursing it at the same time for tying our stomachs knots and pulling our heartstrings dangerously taut. Reading Ms. Barnes's characters and her world is a decadent indulgence, her story a spectacular blend of rich characters, layered plot, and breathtaking emotional connections that truly makes us sit back and remember why we love to pick up a book in the first place.

Bryn has a maturity that exceeds her young years, making difficult decisions that affect an entire group of people who rely on her for their mental and emotional strength. She is a character who exists in nuances, new facets of her personality revealed with every threat she faces both outside and within the pack, and each test reinforces our bond with her until we can't possibly feel any closer. Her relationship with Chase is anything but a typical teen romance, and she struggles to deal with his absolute certainty of his priorities when she knows her own must differ from his due to her position. He has to be second to her first in his life-her duty to the pack resolute and unwavering-and their quiet and often brief exchanges are all the more interesting for this dynamic.
