We enjoyed parts of the story and other parts we just couldn’t wrap ourselves around. The story revolves around a girl named Bronwyn (Bryn) who was raised by a pack of werewolves. She seems like a typical teen, but has extra restrictions on her because she is around a bunch of werewolves all the time.
We enjoyed her training and learning to fight. We also enjoyed her interaction with Chase. We loved the baby werewolves. In most werewolf stories, you don’t have the baby werewolves born with the ability to change, so that was a fun part of the story.
So, one of the major things we couldn’t wrap ourselves around is the punishment dished out on this girl for disobeying pack rules. Sorry, even for an adult, being beaten until you’re almost dead is a bit extreme.
One of the other major things we couldn’t wrap ourselves around was the ending. I am not going to spoil it here for anyone, but we just couldn’t accept the ending. She is human, she will always be human therefore the ending just couldn’t be accepted.
We think Eileen Stevens had an age appropriate voice for the main character, but the male characters seemed to sound almost all the same.

When I looked at this book on Audible.com I was very cautious at buying it - but my Daughter was more eager than any teen could imagine. She is werewolf crazy! She listened to it all in one day while it took me a few. The beginning was a little slow but as I got into it, I couldn't help but be at the edge of my seat! The author and the narrator were amazing. The end of the story was far from disappointing. This book is meant for all age groups and audiences. I would recommend it for anyone!

I was caught up in this story pretty much from the start. Told in the first person from the point of view of the heroine, Raised By Wolves is the story of Bryn, a human girl brought up by a werewolf pack. The author brings Bryn's voice across perfectly, and the reader is soon immersed in the dinamic's of pack life and the struggle of one girl to gain independence in a culture where the alpha's word is law. Raised By Wolves is not like the usual paranormal teen romance, which, insidentally, I love. It's a compelling tale of loyalty, friendship, self discovery and betrayal, and above all, a person's struggle to do what is right. Bryn is a strong heroine that any woman of any age can love. The werewolf genre is not perhaps as prolific as the vampire genre, but I believe this is one of the better additions. Bring on the sequel!
