Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for the first book of 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 . . . with 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 . . ." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS

Children's Literature - Barbara Monroe
This is the sixth book in the series “Wolves of the Beyond.” By the sixth book readers have come to know the characters and their predicament. However, if someone picked up this book first, they would not be disappointed or confused. The story is about a small band of creatures: eight wolves, three wolf pups, two bear cubs, and a Masked Owl, traveling across an ice bridge to a new land. It is a land they call the Distant Blue because it looks blue. This trip seems simple enough but, of course, it is not. This harrowing journey is filled with suspense, vivid imagery, and even a little magic. This diverse band travels through slippery passages, their claws digging deep into the ice for support. Over high ridges with winds so fierce it pushed one of the pups over the bridge and into the ice-cold water. The pup is saved, however, his personality and mannerisms are changed as he starts sleep walking and talking in rhymes. He reveals the world beneath the dark, cold water, adding an interesting dimension to the story. There is also an evil element, a rouge wolf pack whose leader wants to kill one of the wolves and take her pup. The story includes unusual words such as: skaarsgard, cleave hwlyn, lochinvyrr and skree, to name a few. Having a glossary might have helped but the context usually explains their meaning. A good captivating read. Reviewer: Barbara Monroe; Ages 9 to 11.

    This was a very exciting and wonderful book. I read all of them

    This was a very exciting and wonderful book. I read all of them except for lone wolf
    but I now have all the books and plan on reading lone wolf. I recommend you (If you already
    haven't already) to read the Guardians of Ga'hoole series first, most importantly books 7 and the following books.
    I also enjoyed the Epilogue where it talked about Bison but I don't quite understand the burnt-face horse. Maybe it had
    something to do with the Guardians books? But overall this was an awesome book and I rate this 4/5

    Amazing

    I loved this book though I teared up at a few parts and my heart nearly stopped at others. This book is so amazingly written, I can see it in my mind. I hope this isn't the last one!

    So this is the end

    So this is the end of the Wolves series. Faolan leads a group of several creatures on a harrowing journey on a bridge of ice, and when they finally get to the end of their journey, the book ends. Then the author writes a book about Lyze of Kiel, a prequel to the Guardians series. I had hoped that after that she would announce a seventh book, but now she just announced a new series about horses. Horses on a boat withPEOPLE. In a world away from the wolves. Well this is my farewell to the series unfinished. Slaan boladh Wolves of the Beyond……
