Barnes, J. (2010). Raised by wolves (1st ed.). New York, NY: Egmont USA. ISBN: 9781606840597. Paperback. $7.26.
Annotation: Adopted by an Alpha after her family is killed by a werewolf, Bryn has always felt like an outcast of the pack. Bryn always believed she knew who attacked her family until she finds there are more teens like her out there and the attacker is still on the loose.
What if the past wasn’t repeating itself? What if it had never stopped? Bryn has always been different. As a human in the a werewolf pack, you’re used to different. She’s always known that the Alpha adopted her because a rogue werewolf killed her family when she was four; she had always assumed that rogue had been caught or killed. It isn’t until Bryn meets Chase on accident, a boy locked in a cage of the Alpha’s house that she realizes she assumed wrong. The rogue werewolf is still out there.
I love Jennifer Lynn Barnes mostly because she always writes such strong, Buffy the Vampire Slayer- like, female characters. She’s also good at world building and Raised by wolves is no exception. So if you enjoy novels by Richelle Mead or Andrea Cremer, you may also like this book. Since it is the first in the series and rather inexpensive, you can feel less guilt buying it or feel free to get it from your library if you are unsure. You never know with a series.
Awards & Nominations: Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award (RT Award) Nominee for Best Young Adult Paranormal/Fantasy Novel (2010).
Autocorrect just changed my name to Jennifer Lynx Barnes. You can call me… THE LYNX.
