Fast read and great continuation of the story line...

Book two in Ramsey’s “The White Alpha of Monroe” series picks up where book one left off. Sally is struggling to tame her inner wolf while at the same time earn the respect her position as pack beta requires. Her relationship with Tony continues to develop and her two best friends seem to integrate well into the supernatural world, even though they are human. She is also developing a close relationship with her father, who was absent from her life up until she turned 24. As additional characters are introduced, the danger and intrigue grows which keeps the story interesting and new. In addition to werewolves, book two introduces witches and vampires into the mix, which brings even more questions and intrigue.

I read books one and two back to back. Both are short stories and kept me entertained to the end. The story line is interesting and I do look forward to seeing how this series progresses. What I did not like? As with book one, there were a lot of editing issues. In addition, this book was written from a first person point of view, which tends to limit the author’s ability to share events outside of the main character’s presence. To compensate, Ramsey made frequent point of view changes, almost every chapter was written from a different character’s point of view. For me this made the story disjointed and choppy. It seems writing in third person may have been a better option and would have made the story flow more easily and still given the author the ability to relay important information to her readers. Having said that, I did enjoy this series and look forward to book 3.
