Review: Raised by Wolves

Standard

Raised by Wolves is written by Jennifer Lynne Barnes. It was published in June 8th, 2010 in hardcover by Egmont USA.

“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?” – Goodreads

I have to say I really liked this book. There was a lot of action and it was fast paced. I really liked that. I also  really liked Bryn. Its easy to relate to her and to want to be more like her because you want to protect what you think is your family and your friends. As well as, that you want to protect what is yours. I also really liked that she fought for her freedom since she was little meaning that she didn’t let Callum or the pack of werewolves enter into her mind, and let them control her. She is a great character.

Now, the iffy stuff. There was a lot of repetition of certain words. The repetition can be a good thing or a bad thing. I only noticed it because someone else who read the book told me about it. It can be a bad thing depending on if you personally like one word sentences or not. I personally think that it added to the story to provide an example of how werewolves think in wolf form.

Overall: 4 out of 5
