There can only be one alpha.
Bryn is finally settling into her position as alpha of the Cedar Ridge Pack—or at least, her own version of what it means to be alpha when you’re a human leading a band of werewolves. Then she finds a teenage boy bleeding on her front porch. Before collapsing, he tells her his name is Lucas, he’s a Were, and Bryn’s protection is his only hope.
But Lucas isn’t part of Bryn’s pack, and she has no right to claim another alpha’s Were. With threats—old and new—looming, and danger closing in from all sides, Bryn will have to accept what her guardian Callum knew all along. To be alpha, she will have to give in to her own animal instincts and become less human. And, she’s going to have to do it alone.
Bryn faces both the costs, and the rewards, of love and loyalty, in this thrilling sequel to Raised by Wolves.
Jennifer Lynn Barnes has written an incredible werewolf thriller! It's not my favorite werewolf book (Nightshade by Andrea Cremer is my personal favorite), but this series is so suspenseful, that it leaves you turning page after page and wanting more.
This idea that Barnes has came up with is so unique and original from any other werewolf book that exist in YA Fiction. Bryn is just an amazing main protagonist. And Bryn and Callum just are so different, yet they compliant each other. It's just a great relationship!
If you prefer werewolves over vampires, love page-turner books, and enjoy a light but yet suspenseful read, the Raised by Wolves series by Jennifer Lynn Barnes might be the perfect book series for you!
