Strength of the Wolf (Book 2) By Kendall McKenna

strength wolfBlurb

Major Tim Madison has his hands full. A young Alpha werewolf has stormed into his personal life, while Tim struggles to keep military werewolves from safe on the front lines.

After a fiery exit from Afghanistan, Tim Madison is promoted to major. Jeremy Wagner is a civilian, just beginning his Transition to True Alpha. As a lone wolf, he has no one to teach him the vital principles of strong leadership. After a volatile chance encounter, Tim and Jeremy form an intimate bond. As Jeremy prepares to someday lead his own pack, Tim struggles with military werewolves being needlessly maimed in combat, as well as specifically targeted by hostile forces. Despite Tim and Jeremy’s feelings, werewolf and human politics or family conflict could prevent their mate-bond.


Jeremy is a True Alpha in training and Tim is our werewolf expert from book one. Tim is also 10 years older than Jeremy and Jeremy is currently acting like a kid going through puberty.

With the help of Noah and Lucas the two realize they mean a lot to one another and Tim helps Jeremy grow into the werewolf he should be.

Some of this takes place in the war zone, but most of this is a civilian story, as compared to book one. You need to have read book one to really appreciate this book, as much of it is not explained in detail in this book. Also, we see quite a lot of Lucas and Noah and that is only a good thing if you’ve read the first book.

On one hand I liked this book better because the boys were more open about their feelings and there was not nearly as much hinging on a conversation to clear things up. On the other hand, the chemistry between Noah and Lucas completely eclipses that of Tim and Jeremy and since both couples are present in this book, I felt a little bad for Tim and Jeremy.

I am really enjoying this series and highly recommend it and look forward to the next two books.

I give it 4.5 of 5 stars.
