Raised by Wolves (Raised by Wolves #1) by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

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.

My Review:

Raised by Wolves is yet another reason why I love werewolf books! It’s a great book with werewolves (of course), an unruly teenager, and the bonds between them. There are a lot of power struggles which makes for an exciting story line.

Bryn has literally been raised by wolves after a traumatic event takes her parent’s lives. She has managed to stay out of the deep seeded werewolf politics…until now. She has something in her sights and in order to obtain it she has to open herself up to everything she has been so careful to avoid. Can she handle the pressure or will she pay the price for stepping out of line?

An arc of this book was given to me by Tirzah from The Compulsive Reader but that in no way effected my review. She was overloaded with review books and decided to pass some along to others. Thank you again Tirzah!


  1. Ugh! So not my type of book! I'm glad you liked it though!
    We have just enough books in common and just enough differences to keep it interesting! Maybe that's what keeps us good friends, well that and our mutual dislike for Lady Gaga, LOL.

    1. Too funny! That's exactly what I think when I see some of your posts. Ugh! Hahaha!


I love hearing from you and will try to respond to comments as much as possible.
