There was just too much of the same, after having listened to the first book in this series, I was hopping some of the exposition would have been shortened or tightened up a bit, but sadly there seems to be a quota that needed to be met of " I don't know what I'm fully capable of" "I don't want you to get hurt/die" and " I won't leave [insert character] behind/ to die" in every chapter and restating these sentiments over and over. I like the story of the first book, I'll listen to the next book because there seems to actually be plot there. This book feels like very draw out setup and foreshadowing for the next book. Every so often the plot seems to stop, introduce new ideas and then fall back to the main story. This makes the book sort of jumbled, where the main plot is kill the goddess, save the mate, that get relegated to almost a side story, we know it will happen eventually but before that you must face the conflicts three, not to mention the side plots of what is happening to the pack out side of the main story, you would think that a confident leader of the largest pack of wolves in america wouldn't need to read his daughter into all of his conflicts or be so short to jump to conclusions as Jess's Dad seems to have become in this book.
I really do like the story overall, and the fight sequences very much so.
The narrator has gotten better since the first book, where the first book had noticeable pauses or hesitations that kind of got on my nerves those don't seem to be as common.
It is a meh book, read it to get the the third.
