As the first female alpha in living memory, Terra Wilder already has her hands full bringing old fashioned uncles and cousins into line But with a regional gathering of ten clans on the horizon, the shifter will soon be faced with an even arduous task holding her own against a lineup of power hungry pack leaders Justin Young is the strongest of the opposing alphas, and he also happens to be the handsome but disturbing older brother of Terra s own mate Justin is far too powerful to vanquish in a pitched battle, so Terra instead opts to trick the alpha into supporting her cause by pretending to be a pack princess on the prowl for a husband Flirting with a shifter who looks like a dark reflection of her true mate is no fun, but if Terra doesn t maintain her clan s independence, her male relatives risk being tossed out into the cold while her female cousins are turned into chattel On the other hand, if Terra succeeds, she might just lose herself and her mate in the process Pack Princess is the second book of the Wolf Rampant series, which begins with Shiftless The whole time I was reading this book, I just felt miserable The first in the series was intriguing and set up all sorts of interesting conundrums about everything from the plot points of werewolves goings on to the nature of relationships and free will This second book just seemed like it had lost its way Lots of harping on how bad the protagonist, Terra, is at navigating her newfound alpha role, and she never made any progress at getting better at it She kept making terrible decisions, p The whole time I was reading this book, I just felt miserable The first in the series was intriguing and set up all sorts of interesting conundrums about everything from the plot points of werewolves goings on to the nature of relationships and free will This second book just seemed like it had lost its way Lots of harping on how bad the protagonist, Terra, is at navigating her newfound alpha role, and she never made any progress at getting better at it She kept making terrible decisions, putting on useless farcical charades that blew up in her face, and never learning anything from any of it view spoiler If you hate how your dad ruled the pack, and you saw that it wasn t really working out for him in the long run, AND you have the good example of how Wolfie runs his pack and how well it s working out for him, why do you keep pulling the same stupid crap as your dad, again and again and again hide spoiler I wouldn t call this middle book filler, because it did advance some important plot points, but I sure am disappointed in it I m reading the final book in the trilogy now because I want to see how it ends I had high hopes for this book I enjoyed Shiftless Book 1 for the simple direct story it was I don t even know what this story is aboutit s honestly all over the shop and a bit of a disaster. I had read the first in the series Shiftless and really was looking forward to this one While the story was okay, I did not like it as well as the first book I am not a fan of books that warn you that things are going to go bad and then give you the details I much prefer to just have the story unfold If things have gone bad, I am able to figure that out from the sequence and don t need the warnings This book had these types of warnings in almost every chapter, so that made the story much I had read the first in the series Shiftless and really was looking forward to this one While the story was okay, I did not like it as well as the first book I am not a fan of books that warn you that things are going to go bad and then give you the details I much prefer to just have the story unfold If things have gone bad, I am able to figure that out from the sequence and don t need the warnings This book had these types of warnings in almost every chapter, so that made the story much less enjoyable for me The hero and heroine who mated in the last book, were apart for most of this book, so the romance angle was also missing for the most part For a female alpha, Terra also spent a lot of this book submitting or almost submitting to another, which I didn t think rang true I will probably still read the next book in this series, mostly because I liked book one This one still had a lot of good things in it, as I really enjoyed the interactions between the younger pack members I got this book free in exchange for a review but would have paid for it, and still would, even with my nitpicking issues Loved itI loved this second book in the series A lot happened in this book , some good, and some bad Tara is doing a much better job being pack leader, then she thinks In my opinion I am onto book 3 now.
