--David Weber

"Her characters live--they're real, but they are different. And the world they live in lingers in the mind; heroic, squalid, exotic, everyday. I was convinced that it went on by itself when I turned the last page. Bravo!"
--S. M. Stirling on Through Wolf's Eyes

"This engrossing tale of feral myth and royal intrigue offers plenty of action as well as fascinating anthropological detail ... A beautiful and complex book."
---Publishers Weekly on Through Wolf's Eyes

"Very satisfying...As good as, if not better than, the previous book, unlike so many trilogies where the second book is the weakest of the whole."
--Charles de Lint on Wolf's Head, Wolf's Heart

Read an Excerpt


Firekeeper approached the great cat with appropriate humility, but also with joyful anticipation that at long last she was meeting one of her own kind.

"And what are you?" drawled the great cat. "What type of creature speaks after the manner of the Wise Wolves, but walks as a human, reeking of human scent?"

"I am Firekeeper," the wolf woman replied. "The wolves are my people, though I was born human. Beside me stands my pack mate, Blind Seer."

"Firekeeper," the great cat replied. "Do you then worship that god?"

Firekeeper blinked, confused to hear a Beast speaking so like a human.

"My name comes from my mastery of fire," she replied, "a mastery without which I would not have lived many winters."

"So you claim to be Fire's master, not merely his keeper. Interesting. There will be those who will think that claim questionable."

Firekeeper shook her head as if clearing gnats from her ears. "I do not understand," she said.

"My people are called jaguars," the cat said. "My name, divined for me at birth, is Truth."

Firekeeper tried hard not to show her disbelief that anyone -- even a cat -- could claim such a name, but the lashing of the spotted tail told her that her reaction had been noticed.

"It is a good name," the jaguar said, "one that has been in my family many times. My mother's father's sire was called Truth."

Firekeeper couldn't help it -- this time she did blink.

    Poor Editing

    Although I enjoyed the book, the extremely poor editing was very distracting. I'm not sure if it's just the Nook edition, but the editors (or program) could not seem to decide between 'Waln' (the proper name for the chracter) and 'Wain', and I found it took my attention away from the story more than I liked. There were numerous other spelling and grammar errors, but this one was constant-to the point where it was switching back and forth between the two in the same paragraph.
    This book is definitely worth a read thouh, especially if you've enjoyed the other books in the series.

    The Best of the Series

    Quite possibly my favorite of the series, Wolf Captured lends an even larger sense of reality to this already intricitely created universe. Our exposure to new people and cultures in Lindskold's amazing epic is what makes it so spell-binding! And in Wolf Captured we are introduced to what I see as the most fascinating culture yet! And Firekeeper's struggle to adjust to a community of iltelligent animals so familair, and yet so foreign to what she has known and consequent fight to come to grips with a certain part of her past, makes the book easily as, if not more, gripping than its predecessors.

    good, not the best

    an excellent story, but for some reason the word moreover was used constantly..... it's defenitly worth reading though, as are the other books in the series.

    Really good!

    I loved this book. It is hard to understand at some points but it is still good. But I will say that to understand it fully and get the full effect you need to read the rest of the series.

    fascinating fantasy

    The Royal animals, sentient beings that use language to communicate with one another, are thought to exist only in myths and legends. Firekeeper knows that is not true as she was raised by wolves, who loved her and treated her as a pack equal. She believes that she is one of them trapped inside a human body. When people find her in the western lands, they take her and her wolf friend Blind Seer to Darien Carter, who teaches her how humans behave. She is adopted into the royal family and given a noble title.--- In the south, the Liglimoshti people know about the Wise animals; Members of their priest caste kidnap Firekeeper, Blind Seer, and Derion because she is the only known human who can speak with the sentient animals. They want her to teach them to do so too. Derion must find a way to stop a blood sacrifice cult from flourishing. Firekeeper must refuse the one thing she wants most in the world of turning into an actual wolf because that requires blood sacrifice. At the risk of her life, she must also stop an old enemy from revealing truths that could harm the Wise animals.--- Jane Lindskold has written a fascinating fantasy about a land where humans and animals, sentient and non-sentient, live for the most part in harmony with one another. The wise animals play an important role in human society, as they communicate portents and omens to the priest caste, whose superegos of importance prevent them from allowing Firekeeper to teach the commoners besides leading to unemployment. WOLF CAPTURED is another great installment in this fine series.--- Harriet Klausner
