Raised by Wolves
Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Rating: 4 stars
Summary: 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?
Review: I didn't expect to like this book more than Every Other Day, but I did. Yes, the main character did meet a guy and then right away decided to "bond" with him, but she didn't actually say she loved him until near the end. At the beginning Bryn refers to Ali and the twins as simply Ali and the twins. Later on, though, she refers to them as her family. What changed to make her do that? Maybe I'll find the answer in the next book, Trial by Fire.
