Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barners

What a great book - It's been awhile since I lost myself in a Young Adult book like this - reminds me a lot of Shiver in a way - I don't know why - but it does - (Shiver is one of my favorite Young Adult books :)
Anyways - this book really captured me from page one. The way the pack is formed and the bond with the pack made me think of Patricia Brigg's Alpha Omega series - wich I really loved too - I love how they can "feel" eachother - but the special bonds can HEAR eachother's thoughts - then throw in a cutie like Chase - I was actually surprised Devon stepped aside when they met up in Wyoming the way he did - In the begining he said that he had loved Bryn since he was 5 years old - But I guess he knew that it was a friendship love and not the real deal :) I'm glad it worked out though .
The Author Jennifer Lynn Barns did a great job writing this story - It had me laughing with her scarcasm and spunky (Scrappy) attitude - and had me crying when she was beaten down - then I was in Awe through-out the rest the book with the determination she and her "pack" had -
Great book in my opinion :)

Here's what the book is about -
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?

  1. I agree. I love this title. I enjoyed the mental capabilities and I love the role Bryn played. At first I thought Devon was the love interest but I really like Chase's character. In fact, i read the blurb for the next book and I'm nervous. I hope the ending is happy.

    Btw, Love Patricia Briggs and Maggie Steifvator.
