My Thoughts:
I've been eagerly awaiting for this book for a year!! Then I had to read it slowly to savour it and make it last. Still too quick a read... The reason I was so looking forward to reading this book was because I wanted to know what happens to Joel as a member of the pack and how the pack is doing with Joel in it... And I was happy to say I got what I wanted... but... I wanted more!!! And I have to wait another year for the next book! How cruel is that?!! Good thing I have Marked In Flesh to read after this book to stave off the withdrawal symptoms I usually have after reading a good book and nothing else to read next. Or at least nothing as good to read next.

So the world building and character development were already established in book one and continues on to be fantastic in this book. Same goes with the story telling quality. Ok, so I am a die-hard fan of this series (so consider me raving already). Surprisingly, I cannot get into the offshoot seires which is the Alpha And Omega. Tried and failed to get into it... maybe I'll try again later... Anyway, this book was a fantastic read, as usual with a Mercy Thompson book!
