Author: Amanda Carlson
Series: Jessica McClain
Publication Date: April 11th, 2012

Synopsis: Jessica McClain was born the only female in an all male race. The only problem is — she’s no wolf. Called a curse, a witch and the Daughter of Evil by the superstitious wolves, Jessica decides to fight for her freedom, at age nineteen, the only way she can — in the ring.

When she’s brutally attacked right after her fight, is it enough to finally earn her freedom off Compound, or will she be forced to endure the hatred even longer…

Review: I have read the first book in this series, then came back to read this one and I think this one sheds a bit more light on Jessica’s situation and shows what she was going through before the start of the first novel. It is a great intro for the series and it was a nice easy read.

Jessica is a bit reckless, but she’s grown up with men who are extremely stronger than her taunting, bullying and beating up on her since she was a kid. She’s fed up with it and instead of locking herself in her room she’s standing up for herself and fighting back. Her motivations for challenging Mitch are to get the guys to back off and to get her father to send her off the compound.

Stars: ★★★★

Recommendation: A good read before the start of the series, one of the few series novellas I’ve read that I’ve felt like they actually do something for the series.
