Pack of Lies

Red Ridge Pack, #1

"Pack Of Lies" was a great story. I feel it works for both young adult and adult readers as I enjoyed reading it even though the characters were teenagers. I really love these werewolf stories. I think the plot was perfect and it had very strong characters and dialog that helped the story along. This story was never boring from start to finish, it was an up an down ride and I was rereading some pages just to make sure I had read what I thought I had as it was fast-paced and action-filled. Kendall was a great protagonist, and you get to have feelings for her as well as the other characters. This author knows how to make the reader feel like part of the story and care about the characters, even the ones who bring the conflict.

Cade is a werewolf who is next in line to be the alpha and has been groomed that way from the beginning. Alli grew up not even knowing she was any different than other teenagers. She always seemed to not quite fit, but didn't know why. All of that changed when her parents sit her and her brother down for a talk and tells them the truth, finally. They are part werewolf. Alli thinks her parents are totally off of their rockers, but what can she do? They are her parents and she loves them and so she has to move to a new place when they say that is what is best for their family. She hopes that she may fit in with kids who are like her easier than she has anywhere else, at least she hopes so.

This is book one of this series, but it can stand alone too. It is a great read and well worth the time.
