Review: Potential

Potential Potential by M.L. Ridener
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The Potential definitely has potential as an overall shifter story. This is the first book in a series with the second book due out later this year. This is book is less than 200 pages long so it's a quick read with lots of familiar story tropes. There's the familiar high school sterotypes complete with mean girl Stacey who of course goes after all the hot shifter boys. Stacey finds out, that well, she's no match for the main character Ari whose the first potential to come of age. The potentials haven't been seen for over 300 hundreds years and the ability to be one is passed down through the family line. All of the potentials are females and it appears there's going to be five of them which works out well for the remainder of the wolf shifter pack since they only have five members left as well. The antagonist of the story is the Panther Shifters who are viscous, slightly insane, and borderline obsessive in securing a potential for themselves as a mate.
I would like to take a small moment and thank the author for steering clear of making the Alpha of the wolf pack an Alphahole. It was a nice change of pace to read about an Alpha that's not over bearing, over protective, or controlling in a negative way.
Overall the story gets two stars not because the story is bad but because it's too short and too predictable.
