DescriptionAt seventeen, Bryn is has the usual schoolgirl worries: a new boyfriend, a new school and a new home. But she has one major concern that her friends don't have: she is an alpha - a human girl in charge of her own werewolf pack. When Bryn and her closest friends, Dev and Lake, broke from the werewolf Callum's pack, it had all felt right. Together with Chase, Bryn's new love, they had rescued some newly made female werewolves from a despicable master and established their own pack, with Bryn as leader. Yet Bryn has always resented the rules of Pack life - the constant bowing to authority, the submission to the alpha. And she is determined to live differently, to run this pack openly and justly. Then one night, a badly beaten werewolf shows up on her territory. He needs help, sanctuary, care. But taking him in could violate inter-pack rules, and no one knows better than Bryn the costs of challenging those rules. Obedience is law in Pack life, but Bryn is going to break the rules, again.

Reviews for Trial by Fire
I didn't like it
So the majority of you probably already know that I didn't particularly enjoy the first book in this series, Raised by Wolves. If you didn't already know that, you do now. I just thought the writing style was too simplistic and the "romance" too unrealistic.
Nothing's changed. If anything, I disliked Trial by Fire even more. Because we're now past the introduction of characters, the story kind of fell flat. I know it usually goes in the opposite direction but I guess this book is proof that not every author is good enough to write a series. I don't want to sound too hateful towards Barnes because he has got potential. There were a few twists that I didn't expect, but over all these books were just kind of dull.
There's action in Trial by Fire, sure, but to me it just wasn't engaging enough. The ending, however, I actually really enjoyed. I can't say anything without spoiling it, but the very last chapter was great - not in writing or anything, but what it was actually about. Even though I haven't been this series' biggest fan, I'll be buying the third book when it comes out for the sheer fact that I want to see what happens next. I might regret it, I might not. Who knows? I guess we'll just have to wait and see, right?
Overall, Trial by Fire is a little worse than Raised by Wolves because of the flat story and lack of good characterization. by justanotherteenagebookworm
