I am Shala Wilder. It is time for my coming-of-age celebration. Eligible males from every wolf pack have come to compete in the brutal trials of the Assertion.
When all is over, the victor will claim me as his companion. The problem? My heart isn't set on a competitor, but on an off-limits guard who has no interest in me.
What fate awaits me at the end of the trials? Will I fulfill my duty as obedient pack member, or will I forge my own path?

ASSERTION TRIALS is a story with a paranormal basis, where it is different from the usual shifter story. In here, the wolves have a way of life that is full of tradition and sometimes violence, but that you may not be used to. Shala has reached her twentieth birthday, and now she must reunite with her pack, and choose a companion. She is happy about being reunited, but very dubious about the companion side of things.
The world-building was outstanding, with the pack way of life easy to understand. The main characters of Shala and Decker were endearing in their own ways, and they had a fantastic supporting cast too.
I loved how the build-up between Decker and Shala was slow but continuous, and I wondered how it would happen so they could be together.
This was an easy story to read, full of drama, passion, and angst. I have no hesitation in recommending this story, and I look forward to reading more by this author.
