  Booklist Review

Chase and Bryn share a strange connection: the rogue werewolf who turned Chase was the same one who killed Bryn's parents when she was young. The pack who subsequently raised Bryn led her to believe that the murdering wolf was dead, but Chase is proof that they lied. The two teens decide to take justice into their own hands when they discover that the Rabid is still kidnapping and turning children with the full knowledge of the more mainstream werewolves in the area. Fascinating glimpses into pack family dynamics add depth and texture to this latest entry in the werewolf oeuvre. The requisite elements are here star-crossed lovers, lethal enemies, and even the family framework but other than occasionally belaboring werewolf lore, Barnes has produced an appealing addition to the ranks of contemporary fantasy-horror.--Welch, Cindy Copyright 2010 Booklist

  Kirkus Review

Bryn, 15, lives between worlds. Born human, she lost her parents in a werewolf attack when she was four. The werewolves, or Weres, who rescued her raised her as their own. Though she doesn't change into a wolf as her peers do, she is still subject to the Pack's rules of dominance and submission. Then Bryn discovers an important Pack secret: They're hiding Chase, a boy her age who survived a usually lethal werewolf bite and was turned into a werewolf. Bryn and Chase bond almost instantly, and Bryn is sure that Chase holds the key to identifying the Were who killed her parents. There are some holes in Bryn's narration of her own supernatural, wolfish abilities, which makes it difficult to understand how she relates to the rest of the pack. The pacing is very slow at the beginning, with most of the important action crammed into the last 75 pages. Despite these shortcomings, the mysteries of Bryn's identity should keep readers hooked, and there's plenty to discuss in terms of gender roles and Pack politics. (Paranormal.
