Midnight Reckoning (Dark Dynasties)

Midnight Reckoning (Dark Dynasties #2) - Kendra Leigh Castle I'm just a girl growing up in a man's world.
Fighting and scrapping to get to the top.
They must not know me cuz I'll never stop.
Striving 'n' thriving to be all I can be.
Tryin' to hold me back with a heavy hand and sharp words.
Well, my words are really sharper, and my heart beats much stronger.
You make me wanna fight harder to break free and just be me.
Why can't you see that I'm not just a girl growin' up in a man's world?
I'm growing up to be ME.

I liked it even though it was a little tame/light and Lyra's father came around to see Jaden as a good guy pretty quick. The ending with the villain spilling all his secrets in a televised way made it a little cheesy and unbelievable. However, the theme of this read touched me. Lyra, A woman who is willing to fight a pack of werewolves to become her father's successor even though she's not as strong as them (and knows it), but is willing to do it to change how the wolves think and live in these times is a pleasant reminder of how a woman can be strong and determined in the face of great odds.
