He’s in a cage, I reminded myself, but the words meant nothing to me, because I just couldn’t stop staring into his wild eyes and played the last words he’s said before he Shifted, over and over again. I got bit. I got bit. I got bit.
At the age of four, Bryn watched a rabid werewolf brutally murder her parents. She was rescued and taken in by the mysterious Callum, the alpha of his pack. Now fifteen, Bryn’s been as human among werewolves, adhering to pack rule.
But the pack’s been keeping a secret, and when Bryn goes exploring against Callum’s orders, she finds Chase, a newly turned teen Were locked in a cage. Bryn needs answers, and she needs Chase to get them. Suddenly, it’s Bryn and Chase against the werewolf world, whatever the consequences.
Raised by wolves will leave you howling for more.

Thoughts from April 2011 (when I read it)
So first lets me say, so weird to read a book when the man character has your name. Luckily I thought that her nick name wasn’t the shortening of her name, ‘cause then it would have been said more, but still really weird.
So this book was... repetitive I thought. Though it was good, had great characters that didn’t annoy too much, even the story line was... yeah.
Like it’s about a werewolf killing her family, the ones that help her raise her, though she’s never been like the others, stronger. Then she finds she’s been lied to, gets in big trouble, so that they take her away and then she goes and kills that of which she’s been told was dead.
Oh, and gets to be alpha of a pack, even though she’s not a Were.
I ended up reading this book backwards. It wasn’t like it was... yeah, stuff it, I didn’t find a lot of the book interesting until I found out what happened at the end, it was more that I found as interest in an odd way, like it became more fun to find out how they ended that way, then it did to read it from the start.

Why it didn’t do it for me
I’m going to say it was because I’m too old. I like using this as an answer to the whys of things, I just...there was something to...teeny in it. I don’t know, but people love these books, and more so it was written really well, I just....yeah, it wasn’t for me.
