3.5 stars. A lengthy tome full of introspective angst, documents Stiles' recovery after his capture and beta indoctrination by the Alpha pack. Peter is the bad guy in this one, Derek and Isaac his saviours. Would benefit from a severe edit. Typos.
“Normal?” Stiles repeats with a mirthless burst of laughter. “Four months of being carved and beaten and raped and stripped of everything I was before so they could turn me and rebuild me out of nothing but fear and terror and obedience and pain.” He closes his eyes against the angry tears welling in his eyes. “Nothing after that is ever going to be ‘normal’ again, Scott.”
