Waiting on Wednesday (39)

Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Release date: June 8th 2010 by EgmontUSA

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?

How cute, just realised last week’s pick was for an author who has the same name as this week’s author! Last week’s WoW pick was Jennifer Echols. Actually I just realised last week’s pick was Cassandra Clare’s book. This week’s choice has a very stunning cover, it’s all mysterious and screams supernatural! Not that it’s a bad thing. đŸ˜‰

Are you excited for Raised by Wolves as well?

Just a quick blog update, I know I have been a bad blogger! I did an impromptu review hiatus but I’ll be back with my reviews soon, probably in June. I had a post scheduled to explain my absence but did not have the chance to put it up. Will put it up soon!

But don’t forget about me! Just a heads-up, 24th May is The Tension of Opposites week at Read This Book! Mark your calendars! There will also be a Twitter chat with the author!
