Review: Raised by Wolves

As a young girl, Bryn lost her parents in a brutal attack. Callum, the alpha of his werewolf pack, brought her into his circle and treated her like a daughter. As the only human in the pack, Bryn has always felt like an outsider.

Until a new wolf, Chase, appears.

Chase wasn’t born a wolf. Bryn instinctively knows that she must meet him. As he’s locked away for his own protection by Callum, she goes to Callum for permission to see him. Bryn asks Callum, not as a daughter would ask a father, but as a member asking the Alpha. Therefore, she must abide by his decisions
and his rules.

He declares that she will be allowed to see Chase if she meets the following conditions: first, she will train until he’s satisfied that she can defend herself should the need arise. Second, there will be pack members with her at all times, and these pack members have his authority during the meetings. Third, she must open herself up to the pack bond and become an insider. Finally, she must agree not to attend the next Senate
meeting of Alphas.

Bryn, annoyed and confused by some of the conditions, agrees to all of his demands. Once she’s allowed
to meet Chase, she feels a very strong connection to him. She wants to know what happened to allow the
change from human to wolf. As far as she knows, nothing like this has ever happened. She won’t rest until
she uncovers the truth.

The truth is twisted in a way that combines her past with her present, and once she gains that knowledge,
nothing will stop her from taking charge - not even the Alpha’s commands. With a powerful connection
between her and Chase, her life will never be the same.

My Thoughts: Jennifer Lynn Barnes pens an amazing werewolf tale that leaves you breathless for more. Besides the paranormal aspect, RAISED BY WOLVES touches on friendship, loyalty, betrayal, strength, family, and a little romance. It’s absolutely perfect, and I can’t wait for the sequel.

The Cover: Amazing! I like the dark feel of the book.
