Raised by Wolves

Title:  Raised by Wolves
Author:  Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Publisher:  EgmontUSA
Release Date:  June 8, 2010
Received From:  ATWT
Adopted by the Alpha of a werewolf pack after a rogue wolf brutally killed her parents right before her eyes, fifteen-year-old Bryn knows only pack life, and the rigid social hierarchy that controls it. That doesn't mean that she's averse to breaking a rule or two.
But when her curiosity gets the better of her and she discovers Chase, a new teen locked in a cage in her guardian's basement, and witnesses him turn into a wolf before her eyes, the horrific memories of her parents' murders return. Bryn becomes obsessed with getting her questions answered, and Chase is the only one who can provide the information she needs.
But in her drive to find the truth, will Bryn push too far beyond the constraints of the pack, forcing her to leave behind her friends, her family, and the identity that she's shaped?

I really liked this new take on Werewolves, it is really cool to see a different view of the werewolf life, becasue werewolves are becoming a very common paranormal theme.

Ok, first of all I absolutely love the nickname Bryn! It is fun and sassy, which totally fits the character. This book was hilarious, the part that was funny was the great dialogue, and characters, becasue this was not a comedic book but I still loves the interactions between the characters, especially between Bryn and Devon. But while this book had great dialogue there were deep emotional connections throughout the novel.

Bryn was an awesome character she was the quintessential girl power character and she grew tremendously throughout the novel, she went from a girl who while being rebellious, basically did all she was supposed to do, to a strong young woman who is determined to do what she thinks is right no matter the consequences.

An amazing book! Barnes created amazing characters and a great storyline. I am definitely going to pick up some of her other books after this!



  1. Found you via the Book Blogger Hop. I haven't heard of this title before, but it definitely sounds interesting! It's officially on my radar.

  2. I'm so glad you gave it a good review, because my initial reaction was the fact that I love the cover! You're right about the fact that werewolve books need to have original premises these days to get a mass appeal...just too many out there not to have an original storyline!


Hi! I love getting comments, I will try to answer all of them time willing!
