Jennifer Lynn Barnes: Raised by Wolves (Raised by Wolves, #1)

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?

The book is well written, characters are great and the story is good. But still.. I just didn't click for me. There wasn't really anything wrong and the story got better minute by minute, but still it didn't "compel" me, like usually happens with really great books. I think that I'm pretty obsessive reader and usually I read the whole book in one sitting. This took me few days and it wasn't really difficult to part with this book. Even when I needed to pause in a middle of a scene. Something was missing. Normally I would've read this book even if that woudl've ment no good night sleep. But not this time. Not with this book.

The story was interesting, even if there wasn't really anything new to the werewolves. But it wasn't the problem. I've read so many werewolf-books that it's usually wonder if there something new. That the downside being really compulsive reader, new points of view are pretty rare.

Bryn as a character was great. She was witty and strong and all that. She had answer to everything and she was funny. But isn't it always so.

I don't really know what to say about this book. It was well written, gharacters were smart and the story was good and well thought. There just was something that didn't compel to me. But still I would recommend it to others. There wasn't anything wrong, so maybe it was just me. Maybe it was missing romance, there were hardly any romance. Maybe that was the thing that I was missing. I don't know.
