Idolizing In: Raised by Wolves Series, Book 1

Format: Hardcover | Pages: 418 | Release Date: June 2010 | Publisher: Egmont USA | Obtained: Pasquotank-Camden Library

"Raised By Wolves" [Raised by Wolves Series, Book 1] by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

My Book Summary : Bronwyn's (Bryn) life changed when she was 4-years-old and a Rabid werewolf slaughtered her family. Thankfully a local pack alpha, Callum, step in during the slaughter and stopped the Rabid from attacking Bryn at that time, and brought her into his clan to live (keeping her human).

Now she's 15-years-old, a part of Callum's pack --- but not, since not everyone accepts having a human living among them after all this time. Recently Bryn finds out that there is a threat in Callum's territory but no one is willing to inform her of what the threat is, yet they are more protective of her then ever.

After a while of being left in the dark Bryn decides to take matters into her own hands so, she can find out what's going on. However, what she ends up finding will change her world forever ....

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! I have to agree, completely, with Melissa Marr when she said, "Quite simply, the most compelling YA werewolf book out there." And Ms. Marr is soo right! This novel/series takes on a new meaning in and of itself. Even though I've only read the first novel, thus far, but it was so heart-warming, intriguing, and mysterious that I didn't want to put it down even when I had too!

• Bryn is mysterious from what happened to her in her past to who she is to who she becomes ... you really can never be sure what she'll do next, other then knowing she will do whatever she can to make things right.

• Her relationship with her friends, Devon & Lake, had moments of hilarity to a seriousness that comes from years of friendship, and makes you wish you could join in the fun.

• Chase! What can I say .... I loved him!! I hope they are okay and still together in the next book since I really really liked their relationship together!!

• And okay I know that she had a VERY small role in this book but I could not get enough of Lily!! She sounded soooo cute! =0)

I can't wait to read the next novel, "Trial by Fire," and I'm so excited to hear (off of Ms. Barnes website) that there will be a third book in the series that'll be released in June 2012!!

I recommend this to everyone who loves paranormal YA stories!! Those who are fans of Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Gena Showalter, Stephenie Meyer, and who likes werewolf novels should enjoy this novel as much as I did!

Book Teaser(s) :
Well, at least I wasn't completely on my own. Though after a moment's reflection, I wasn't sure if that was a comfort or not. My allies in this circle consisted of a fashion-conscious teenage boy who believed in the holy power of the movie musical and two infants wearing shirts with little yellow and blue duckies on them.
An army, we were not. ~ within Chapter 8
"This doesn't mean we're mates," I told him.
He opened his mouth very wide in a mischievous, wolfy yawn.
"Women's liberation and all that," I continued, catching his yawn and trying to push it down. "No Mark. No lifetime commitment. No 'property of' signs. We just have a bond, that's all."
His tail beat quietly against the dirt beneath us, and a smile worked its way onto my lips. ~ within Chapter 16
