It was an interesting take on shifter culture and physical attributions. The shifters in this book was susceptible to normal human diseases (e.g. diabetes). It's not every day that I read a werewolf story involving such strict pack hierarchy either. I did think the story needed to be fleshed out more. I'm not sure if the author intended for this to have a serial story feel to it and if the next installment will continue the story and lead the series somewhere.
