Friday Memes: Taken by Storm by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week.

Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

I got a chance to grab something off my TBR mountain instead of my review stack this week. I chose Taken by Storm by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. This is the third book in the Raised by Wolves series following Raised by Wolves and Trial by Fire. Here is the description:
In the eye of a storm stands Bryn, the alpha of the Cedar Ridge werewolf pack. She is young. Female. Human. Physically weaker than any werewolf, she could never survive a battle with another alpha, the strongest, fiercest, and canniest of his pack.

Yet she cannot refuse a summons from the werewolf Senate. A rogue werewolf is attacking humans. The risk of exposure threatens to destroy pack life, and the center of the crisis is Cedar Ridge territory—her own lands.

Bryn has no choice but to attend the meeting, a gathering of the most powerful werewolves on the continent.  The subject is the rogue wolf, but Bryn knows the other packs want what she has. Her territory. Her females. Her pack.

They want her death.

Werewolf law prevents the other alphas from making a direct attack. It also prevents her former alpha, the mysterious and powerful Callum, from coming to her aid. But it doesn’t prevent Bryn from knowing what she wants. To keep her lands. To protect her pack.

To survive.
I ran as though my life depended upon it.
Friday 56:
If these men wanted to be condescending, I couldn't stop them, but if they were looking for a response, they weren't going to get one.


  1. Very ominous 56 and exciting beginning!

  2. A human amongst wolves...I bet her life does depend on it.

    Here are my Friday Memes.

  3. Visiting from F56..
    Great beginning and from pg 56 ..sounds like she's taking no

  4. A female version of Romulus and Remus? Not sure I would read it though ... the paranormal genre just doesn't click with me.

    Here's mine. Plus I have a giveaway of my featured book starting tomorrow:

  5. I love hearing the inner voice of an animal! Enchanting reading! The book looks as if it begins at a dramatic peak!
