I don't think Adam would allow anyone to change his daughter, as Alpha and father his protective instinks would overrule any reasoning there.

I guess being a werewolf and the added bonus of immortality must be tempting at Jesse age. On the other hand you go trough so many changes as it already is in that part of life, and Jesse did more so than some others, that she probably cherishes this small bit of stability that being just human brings. But then again, seeing Mercy's ability to shift to coyote free of any drawbacks ... well, that's certainly a different story.

I'm with Gerd. Given the low percentage of successful were-transformations vs. the high percentage of deaths, I think Adam would be right against it.

Of course, whether Jesse would listen to him if she really made up her mind... that's another story.

I don't want to write the great American novel. I want to write the great American beach read. It pays better!

There was a discussion of this earlier on another thread. 
My guess is that barring something life-threatening or old age, Adam would fight it.  Of course, if Jesse got attacked like Anna, say if she was traveling in Europe --!

That assumes it's casual or semi deliberate, Gryphon.
If someone like Justin, who turned Anna was unsupervised, though?  I can see a hunt for that wolf, yes, and maybe some general housecleaning of Europe, but no, the Euros would seriously fight back.
Or African, or Asian; whatever.

I can see Adam not letting Jesse change until she starts getting old. Then he will realise he is going to lose her and may not be so stubborn.

Adam wouldn't care he wipe them out, with a little help from David.

I disagree; he knows perfectly well that there are abbarant individuals; it was one such that turned him & David, after all.

Well, I'm sorry, I disagree.  Control freak Alpha, taking care of his whole pack, deed done, daughter alive & able to join his pack?
Surgical strike is still my opinion.

If she died, I could see the whole Columbia Basin pack getting behind that, but not if Jesse survived.

I have to agree with Patti here. (Sorry Gryph :-*) I can see Adam really wanting to go berserk and wanting to kill them all. But I don't think he would actually kill them, hurt them badly yes. But as Alpha he is too much of a politician (for a werewolf) to do anything irreperable.

Normally I'd agree with Gryph, but Adam is fourth strongest alpha in the US.  You don't get to hold that title for as long as he has without stupid amounts of self control and restraint.

He'd have everyone involved with changing her turned into fur rugs, but he wouldn't go all "Scorched Wolf" on the whole continent.

E brought up the reaction when Jesse was bullied by humans, and I promised a reply here.  Then I got distracted by customers, so I'm late.

When Jesse was attacked by those punks Adam was already strained by having the 'hole' from Mercy being declared his mate, but not accepting or denying it.  Honey mentioned how he took all of the negative effects on himself, how that left him off balance and not as controlled as he normally was.  I think now that he's getting resilution with Mercy (as implied by the teaser chapter) he would be much better able to control himself.

Also. He was totally pissed off but he did not press the point even though he knew Mercy knew the scent of the kids... so that shows even more restraint
