Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for the first book in the Wolves of the Beyond series.

"This is a soulful, searching read consumed with the spiritual journeys of animals and the ethereal connection between slayer and slain. [W]ith an invigorating ending that bodes well for the next volume." - Booklist

"The author builds a captivating world of forest, snow and volcanoes populated by intelligent animals and weaves a compelling story sure to bring readers back for the second installment." - Kirkus

Children's Literature - Renee Farrah Vess
Faolan and Edme investigate the claims of wolves dancing to their death during a famine brought on by a never-ending winter. Wolves from all clans have been hit hard by the famine, and it is weakening their spirits and morale. Traditions and culture are being forgotten, while anger and frustration take over. Faolan and Edme discover everything is far worse than they thought. Meanwhile, the powerful lone wolf the Sark and Gwynneth the owl team up to find the helmet and visor of Gwyndor, Gwynneth's father. The items have been unlawfully disturbed, and are connected to the instigator of the blasphemous wolf dancing circles. The two stories each hold pieces to save the world of Ga'Hoole, and they must come together while everything around them splinters. This is the fourth book in the "Wolves of the Beyond" series taking place in the same world as Lasky's "The Guardians of Ga'Hoole." The winter quiet is artfully described and there is a sense of calm despite the turmoil of the story. The personal lives of the characters are becoming more revealing, and there is a sense of more magic and wonder to come. There are frequent episodes of wolves dying even with the assistance of healthy wolves, which may upset sensitive readers. Reviewer: Renee Farrah Vess
