Mal March has just set off on a complicated and unprecedented journey. He has become a were-wolf, a rare and totally not random shape-shifting form, which means that he will have to leave his family and become part of the wolf pack. For Mal, this means redemption and a way to find answers in his life, but nothing ever turns out exactly as planned. Wolf is the second book in The Were Chronicles, and while the first book was his younger sister Jazz's story, this book is Mal's story. It goes back and gives some history and his view on things leading up to his turning into a wolf, which occurred at the end of Random. This book takes up where book one ended and goes one step further. Author Alma Alexander once again gives a book that is captivating and exciting. You will not want to put it down until you finish it, and then you will be screaming for book three!

The Were Chronicles, book one Random and now book two Wolf, really need to be read in order, although you might be okay if you don't. I was so captivated by the story that I read all three books, one right after the other! This book is all Mal's story and takes him from leaving his family through his journey. This book may be a paranormal fantasy, but there is genetic testing and experiments, forced registration and so much more that is socially cutting edge. Author Alma Alexander gives readers a book that is fun and exciting, but if you sit back and think about it, it could provide excellent book club conversations! This series is my absolute favorite style, something that is fun and gets kids and teens reading, but at the same time has many underlying socially conscious themes that it forces you to look at life and the world around you at the same time! Everyone should read this series!
