Overview

The third and final fast-paced installment in the popular Raised by Wolves books, called "the most compelling YA werewolf series out there" by New York Times best-selling author Melissa Marr.

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.

Also available in hardcover (978-1-60684-319-2) and electronic book (978-1-60684-320-8)

    Not Barnes' best work

    Taken by Storm did not blow me away. It took me four days to get through the freaking thing, and it wasn't even that long of a book. It is only 320 pages. Still, it was slow moving for me. I'm not sure if that's because I was an idiot and read Good Reads reviews before I read the book, and some inconsiderate reviewers (using that term loosely) spoiled it for me, or if it is because the book just wasn't that interesting. I got really tired of being in Bryn's head in this novel. Also, she didn't seem to grow as a character at all. If this is the end of the series, then I am very disappointed by this final installment. If the series continues, I'll just pretend that Barnes knew it was going to and decided to make this a transition book. Overall, Taken by Storm alternates between boring and depressing. I'm not sure which is worse.

    I am a huge fan of the Raised by Wolves series. The first two books are amazing, and I had high hopes for Taken by Storm. Maybe that's why I feel so let down now that I've finished it. I just expected something more from Barnes than what I got. Oh, the writing was fine, but the characters were obnoxious. Bryn has gone from being a powerful alpha to a whiny teenage girl. All she does is run around blaming herself for everything and whining about how life isn't fair. Chase is as boring as ever. Ali is barely present, and Devon isn't around much either. The only bright spot in this novel is that there is quite a bit of Callum. He actually shows some emotion, too. I enjoyed getting to know him a little bit better. Bryn doesn't grow at all. If anything, she regresses. The rest of the characters remain unchanged as well.

    I just don't feel that this is a good conclusion for the series. I feel like there should be some character growth with the leading character in order for a series to be complete. And the ending left me wondering what is going to happen next. I didn't feel a sense of resolution at all. Sure, some people's storylines wrapped up because they died (not saying who, though Good Reads is full of inconsiderate jerks who posted it), but with Bryn, there is no resolution. And it's hardly a happily ever after. The story ends with her feeling like she's lost everything. Not the way I like for a series to end. I prefer at least an ounce of happiness in my endings.

    The pacing is slow even though there is a lot going on. As I said, it took me four days to get through this book. I put it down every chance I got and dreaded picking it back up. However, I kept hoping it'd get better and that I'd forget the spoilers I read. I even cleaned to avoid reading this novel, and I hate cleaning. However, I made it through. I'm not sure if I'm glad I did or not.

    There is a lot of drama in this novel. Plenty of bad guys attacking means plenty of action. I couldn't make myself really care, though. I mean there were a few points of pure brilliance, a few which even drove me to tears, but overall, I felt nothing for the characters or this novel. I just wanted it to be over so I could move on to the next book in my TBR pile.

    Overall, I'd recommend this book to fans of the series. You need to know what happens in this book. I hope there are other installments to follow, but if not, maybe this book will give you more closure than it did me. Taken by Storm isn't the worst thing I've read, but it's not the best either. It is just okay.

    Oh The Irony!!!

    *Spoiler Alert* Oh how ironic se just realized she truly loved him when he got heart ripped out. One word. Wow.

    I am a fan of this series and author but i mean out of all two books this one is lacking something. Chase is dead. The guy who was there since the beginning is dead. Well, that really threw the book in a pot of hot water. The ending threw the whole thing off balance, and that's not a good thing.

    Why Barnes? Why? Why did you take him away from us?

    I avoided reading this book for a very long time. I had heard rumors. Horrible rumors. Rumors of anger, violent book throwing, tears. I had an idea of what this might mean. And so I avoided. I owned the book for over a year and let it collect digital dust.

    I regret my actions now. Jennifer Lynn Barnes is a wonderful writer. Bryn is a wonderful character. The story deals with what it means to leave childhood behind and the hard, seemingly impossible, choices that leaders must make for the betterment of their people.

    I understand why this book made people angry. It made me angry. The ability to engender strong emotions is the mark of a truly awesome writer. I wish certain events hadn’t happened, but that’s how life is. Self-sacrifice has always been a theme in this series and I was really satisfied at the end.

    If I had known from the first book how this series was going to end I would not have started this series. I came to love Chase and to have him die was one of the worst endings I could have imagined. Not only that but she is ending the series at the point where it could have really got interesting.

    after series all summer trying to discover one that I absolutely could
    not put down for one second and this series was by far the winner! This
    book had me shedding tears at the end and I hope that this is not the
    final installment of this series because there is NO WAY it can end with
    Bryn so heartbroken and alone. I did not see the ending coming at all.

    BEST BOOK EVER!

    I loved this book so much. I read the whole series and absolutely loved it. I thought at first that the book was just going to be some werewolf version of Twilight (god I hate Twilight) but I was so wrong. I loved this book. Not trying to give any spoilers away, but I cried so much throughout the book. Unlike some books I have read, Jennifer Lynn Barnes actually displays the emotions the characters in the book are feeling perfectly. I have read very sad books before, but have never really cried if something bad happened. Jennifer Lynn Barnes is the best author ever. I definantly reccomend this book to people who are interested. But make sure you read the other two books or you will be bery confused.
