Deep in the forest, there lived a pack of wolves. Their leader was Greystoke, and this was his coven. He had called an assembly and the wolves were starting to gather. The night was dark and the moon was hidden. Greystoke slunk into the clearing. He was dreading this assembly. But he was still head
of the pack and there was a job to be done. Tonight they were to banish one of the family. He hated the thought of this. He had always been proud of his coven, but recent dissent amongst the ranks had forced this confrontation.
And so begin the adventures and the enduring friendship of motherly Kikera, a half-breed wolf dog, and young Sol, a happy-go-lucky but vulnerable pure dog. This book covers all the bases for a great story: friendship and loss; love and loyalty; rejection and acceptance; leadership and politics; birth and death; and good versus evil. And you will be carried away by the special mystical quality of this narrative.
The prime audience is 10 to 12 year olds. Young readers may shed a few tears but they will love it!
Watch for the sequel!
