Amazon Blurb:

Jessica McClain was born the only female in an all male race. The only problem is-she’s no wolf. Called a curse, a witch and the Daughter of Evil by the superstitious wolves, Jessica decides to fight for her freedom, at age nineteen, the only way she can-in the ring.

When she’s brutally attacked right after her fight, is it enough to finally earn her freedom off Compound, or will she be forced to endure the hatred even longer . . .


This is a reasonably short prequel novella to the Jessica McClain series. It was actually written and released prior to book one, which means it feels a bit different to most prequel novellas that come out after the series has already started. This really mostly serves as an introduction to all the characters than a story McClain is just dying to tell set in the same series.

If you’re looking to read this as an introduction to the series and don’t want to try the full novel, I can’t say I actually recommend that. This is pretty different than the series, as pretty much everything changes after this novella into something different than what is being presented here. The series is really fast paced and action-packed in the grand sense of lots of people and things are happening. This is a much more close-knit group we’re being presented with.

The one thing that is the same is Jessica. If you want to read this to get a feel of what Jessica is like it is pretty indicative. She is headstrong, doesn’t always think things through, thinks she doesn’t have to answer to anyone. She is always willing to fight with those around her when she doesn’t get her way. Yeah, that is the Jessica I remember.

This isn’t strictly necessary to read at all for the series. This is just for a brief introduction. You can easily skip this and not at all be lost, and most of it is covered in the series anyway.

Sidenote: I have no idea why she has a gun on the cover?
