Raised by Wolves

What am I reading now?  Raised by Wolves (Jennifer Lynn Barnes)

Annnd . . . what do I think so far? Bryn is impulsive and passionate. She's a fighter and resilient. Not many things scare her but there are a lot of things that make her curious.
Ding, ding--that's the problem! Especially since she is being raised by the Alpha of the pack of werewolves.
No, she's not were, she's human. Bryn was orphaned when her parents where torn apart in front of her when she was 4 years old by a rabid werewolf. The weres who saved her raised her.
Bryn meets a boy who is being held in a cage by her pack. Chase was bit by a werewolf and now he's one too. But she feels a special (and forbidden--yeah that smacks her curiosity to attention) connection to him.

Finished the 2nd and 3rd to this set also. I feel shredded. The twists and intensity of this series compels you to keep reading while you are jerked through harrowing disasters--that's good and extremely bad!

When rating the third book, I took away a star for the ending. I prefer hope.  Read this if you can take the emotional drain. Not light reading, but a story that is very well told.

Not encouraging. I'm all about hope.
