Raised by Wolves 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?
The time really should have come for this novel already. My best friend bought it for my birthday not last June but the June before that. I was/am crazy in love with the concept. I just need to clear off some room in my reading schedule and get to it. I know a lot of people have really enjoyed this one and in anticipation of loving it, I even purchased the sequel. Must get to it soon!

Have you read it? What's on your tbr shelf?


  1. Ooh, I have this one to read too! I got it aaages ago, but never got round to reading it. I like the concept too - hope you get to read it soon!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
