Every werewolf knows the meek don't inherit the earth.
Fen Young is a half-shifter whose inner beast is more mouse than wolf. Home is her castle, the only place she's ever felt safe. 
Enter Hunter Green, an uber-alpha strong enough to stop traffic with a single look. He's handsome and enticing and seems like just the ticket to broaden Fen's horizons...until the uber-alpha brushes off his admirer and summarily rejects her from her home pack. 
Now treading water in the no-man's land of outpack territory, Fen must confront a missing pack mate, a tantalizing stranger, and a serial killer targeting half-werewolves. Will she be able to shore up her waning power in time to save her friend...and half-breeds everywhere...before it's too late?

   I admit that I was seriously confused when I first started reading this one. I mean, like utterly, completely, without a doubt confused for the first several paragraphs. Then everything clicked into place. And before I say anything else, I have to say that I loved this book. I really can't wait until book two releases later this year.

  The book is written entirely from Fen's point of view, and I absolutely adored the character's voice. She's witty, snarky, and just so entertaining to read. I loved getting to experience Fen's growth right along with her. So, yes Ms. Easterling did a fan-fucking-tastic job writing this. All of the characters were well developed and had big personality, even minor characters.

   I did run across one totally WTF moment, but no biggie-- it's not story-breaking or anything like that, but I would still like to know where the hell Hunter pulled out the sword condom... seriously where did it come from?!

  It was full of twists and turns of all kinds and I'd say that only the most astute readers, the ones that catch every little detail, will figure it out before they get to the end. I'm pretty good at figuring out what's going to happen long before I get there, but I have to admit this one caught me off guard a couple of times.

  So, I'm telling all of you to drop whatever you're doing and immediately buy this book and give it a read. You won't regret it!
