*5 stars*

My mind = Blown.


Characters: Raised by Wolves is, by far, he best werewolf book---or series---I have ever read. There are a lot of elements to it, but one happens to be the characters. Lake, Bryn, Callum, Dev, Chase, Mitch, Shay...the good guys and the bad. Their personalities don't change because the story needs a new direction. Their personalities don't shift on a dime because the author got tired of it and wanted to spice it up a bit. Shay is always an asshole. Bryn is always strong, even without the physical capabilities. Chase always loves her. Dev is always the comic relief.

Period. End of story. Bye-bye. See you later.


And even though the readers sometimes desperately want a bad guy to have some good so that no one dies...that's not how it is in real life. It never is. The bad guys are bad. The good ones have faults. People die. Raised by Wolves is not a series that alters the reality to please the readers.

Which is why it rocks.


Stages (beginning, middle, end): There is no "beginning, middle, end". There is you, sitting on your couch, reading, and then suddenly being done (for now) with one of the most amazing teen werewolf series that has ever graced the face of the earth. The beginning (though I would recommend reading the other two books to catch up if you haven't, but it isn't necessary) leaves off where it ended (with only a few months in the passing), and you get caught up pretty quickly from there. The middle introduces a whole new meaning to "keep the story alive" and charges right into the fray. The end will leave you in tears, a pounding heart, and an intense love/hatred for the author and the characters.

My Thoughts:


Read this book. Read this series. And then read it again.

If this series has ended?


Then 2012 is real, and the end of the world is upon us.
