Still human, she must take her place in the werewolf Senate, the precarious democracy that rules the North American packs.[expand title=”Read More”] Standing side by side with werewolves who were ancient long before she was ever born is enough of a challenge, but Bryn soon learns that the Senate has been called to deal with a problem: the kind of problem that involves human bodies, a Rabid werewolf, and memories that Bryn, Chase, and the rest of their pack would rather forget.

    This kind of got sidetracked by the great cover reveal of 2012(STORMDANCER!!!). I wasn’t able to finish The Girl in the Steel Corset, but I’m LOVING the cover of the newest book. Gorgeous. Love the necklace/collar.
