There are a lot of mysteries and a lot of prophecies, but the focus is on the inescapable pull between wolves and humans. Most of all, I need a narrator who believes in her story and its importance to the listener; who is so invested in the story that she will tell it in detail, in as much wolvew as little hurry as the scenes require to help me understand what it was like for her to experience them.

Overall, I wouldn’t say this was the best thing I’ve ever read and I can see why some people might not enjoy it, but I really liked it and I can’t wait to pick up the second book!

Any concerns I had about a story about wolves holding my interest disappeared immediately.

The story of Indru came from my somewhat whimsical take on coevolution. The only reason I decided to read this series is because of the synopsis, which sounds exactly like this story I tried to write doorthy I was like nine.

At times I off my attention waning. Ruuqo lacks the dignified grace you expect most leaders To have, and while I did like Rissa quite a bit more due to her outspokenness whenever she thought Ruuqo was being a fool, she became much more unlikable the older the pups got.

I found the story incredibly boring at times, almost to the point where I wanted to nod heearst while driving in my daily commute.
