Nothing’s simple when you run with werewolves. Jess Gillmansen thinks she’s seen it all but her eyes are about to be opened to even more danger and a reality far more paranormal than she’s suspected. With Jess’s realization that the Rusakovas’ mother is still alive and imprisoned, the group’s choices become harder and trust more important. Lines are drawn and relationships change as the broken Rusakova family struggles to reunite long enough to free their mother and people who Jess always just took to be normal people show themselves to be much, much more.

My Thoughts:

Wow I think this one was even more action packed than the first book. A few questions answered and a pile of new ones left behind. I think Jess is one strong character for all she had to put up with in this book. CIA, Russian Mafia, Ghosts, Dads, Angst filled teenagers. An explosive combination and then you add all the new stuff, that we got a glimpse of in this book, and I have to say I am very curious to see where all of this is heading.

I am still so incredibly fascinated with the Rusakova family as I was in the first book. I really hope we get to know more of their background. I will admit I wanted to throttle Pietr for most of this book. Boys can be so dumb!

Oh and talk about cliffhangers! If you're not a fan, I'd wait to read this book until the next is due out because Shannon leaves a whopper of a cliffhanger at the end of the book. Needless to say, I am anxiously awaiting to see what happens next.

Oh, I've been wondering if this series is one for me or not. I'm just not sure. But I'm so glad you are enjoying it. :)
