Overview

"Tanith must choose among the unhappy but familiar world of her clan, a growing fondness for a young warrior of a neighboring tribe, and the lure of the wolf pack. Her story, steeped in prehistoric imagery and legend, is a compelling search for identity and self-worth within a richly drawn setting."—Booklist

Her earliest memories are of the wolves. And of the hunters who killed them and reclaimed her to human society—as a slave. Tanith has grown up as part of a savage, plundering clan, in a world ruled by brute strength, superstition, and animal cunning. Now, hated and shunned, Tanith flees human society for the more humane company of wolves. But the gentle son of a chief from a neighboring clan beckons her back. He offers Tanith the chance to join once again with her own kind. She must make her final choice of which cry to answer—the wavering, longing bellow of the human or the steady, beating call of the wolf.

When she is three-years-old, Tanith is taken from a den of wolves and lives for many years as the daughter of the chief of a warlike clan, until circumstances force her to choose between wolves and men.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-A group of hunters find three-year-old Tanith living with a wolf pack, and their chieftain, Ahearn, decides to take her back to their village to become an adopted daughter for his wife, Nolwynn. Tanith's new mother becomes her only source of love and gentleness as she grows up in this brutal, savage clan that shuns and despises her because of her early feral upbringing. After Nolwynn's death, Tanith, now 16, seeks out her first family-the wolves-for solace and kinship. The only other person offering friendship and an opportunity to escape is Gibran, a neighboring village's chieftain's son. Now she is faced with choosing between her feelings for Gibran or the harmonious kinship offered by the wolves. The plot is based on an interesting concept with much potential, but it doesn't ring true. Auxiliary and even principal characters are not developed, and relationships are not fleshed out enough to give them dimension. Tanith is the most fully realized character, at times touching in her longing for companionship and belonging, but others are presented as either negative or positive, cruel or loving, with no depth. Even the young woman's relationships with pack members lacks conviction. She develops a psychic bond with Ashok, the alpha male, but her observation of and use of wolf behavior to gain acceptance is more like that of an observer than a community member.- Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukee, OR
Candace Smith
Sixteen-year-old Tanith, raised by wolves and adopted as a young child by Chief Ahearn, knows that her black hair and glowing eyes make her an outsider in the golden-haired clan. Her tribe fears the wolves and brutally hunts and slaughters them, but Tanith is comforted by the beasts and drawn by their howls. When Ahearn is wounded and unable to lead his people, Tanith must choose among the unhappy but familiar world of her clan, a growing fondness for a young warrior of a neighboring tribe, and the lure of the wolf pack. Her story, steeped in prehistoric imagery and legend, is a compelling search for identity and self-worth within a richly drawn setting. With the pace of a campfire folktale, it will appeal to good readers who enjoy ancient lore.
