It hasn't been the best week for Jessica McClain.

Her mate has been kidnapped by a Goddess hell-bent on revenge --- but Jessica is playing for keeps.

Because she's the only female werewolf in comes with its own set of rules...and powers.

Aided by two vamps, two loyal Pack members, and one very reluctant human, Jessica must rescue her man while coming to terms with what being a wolf really means.

All in a day's work for a girl.

The second novel in the Jessica McClain series is a full on action adventure featuring one angry Goddess and plenty of monsters, demons, and a few newly risen beasties...
Jessica McClain, the only female werewolf in her world is back in book two of the Jessica McClain series. Book two picks up where the first book left off, and there is little to no recap so do not read these out of order. The bulk of this book is Jessica and a few others on the adventure to save her mate from a crazy witch/goddess. I thought I'd be bored when I realized it was mainly going to be the group trekking through the woods. But there is so much that goes on that it held my interest and I had trouble putting my kindle down for breaks or sleep.

Word is getting out about Jessica coming into her power, and it's stirring up trouble for her through all the different factions. The Vampire Queen made a deal with Jessica at the end of book one and gives her two of her best trackers to aid her journey of finding her mate. I'm hesitant to see how the queen reacts when she finds out what happened on their journey. Everything in the plot is building and exploring the myth that surrounded Jessica since she was born.
The Prophecy Of The True Lycan:
One shall walk again; above all others she is born;
Within her the beast shall lie, well hidden in True Form;
And from this day forth, the Children of the Night shall pay;
By her supreme rule, her righteous hand will slay;
Justice to all, as none are her equal;
The True Lycan will Vanquish all Evil.

I will note that there is a trend with the ending of the books so far. They leave off on a something you want to read more about asap. I can honestly say I want book three in my hands right now so I can see what the heck happens. I recommend this series if you're looking for a werewolf book with lots of action/fighting.


  1. Oh yes this one was nice too, glad you enjoyed it! I'm curious to read more of your reviews about the series.

  2. I love this series. It was great to see a new take on werewolves. Great review.

  3. I loved this too but after reading the next two books there's a bit of a repitition in the series.

  4. This was my second favourite installment in this series, however after this one the story began to go downhill IMO. I recently read book 4, and decided to throw in the towel because I just can't deal with some of the elements anymore. Hopefully that won't happen to you. Nice review!

  5. I've got these to try :) Rachel Caine is "horrible" about doing endings like that too. lol I used to stalk the bookstore waiting for them to open so I could get the next book right away. lol
