Trial by fire is a classic teen werewolf drama. It is not entirely unlike other werewolf/vampire stories, but it does have it's own little twist of events that are intriguing and original, for example the idea of a human girl being an alpha, or the background stories of some members of her pack. I did enjoy reading this book.
Bryn is a human girl but the alpha of a werewolf pack. She has a complicated relationship with 2 of the weres in her pack. Suddenly an abused were shows up on her doorstep from one of the enemy packs asking for protection even though it is not an easy request to fulfill. Due to this injured were's arrival, Bryn's pack is faced with many threats and problems to solve.
