Overview

Fell by David Clement-Davies


In this dark, thrilling fairy tale, it is the wolf who saves the girl. Fell, the dark-furred twin brother of Larka, the heroine of The Sight, must face life without his sister or the rest of his loving pack. He’s a lone wolf now, a “kerl,” an outcast from his kind who shares his sister’s fatal gift for seeing the future and the thoughts of others. This gift leads him to befriend a young girl, also an outcast from her people. They have a shared destiny: to free the land from a tyrannical ruler who would enslave man and animal alike.
 
The prequel to this book, David Clement-Davies’s bestselling animal fantasy The Sight, is set among the wolves of Transylvania. This dark epic thrilled readers and critics alike, who said, “This sprawling, ambitious novel has it all: action, adventure, apocalyptic battles” (Children’s Literature), and called it “rich, complex, and credible” (VOYA) and “full bodied [and] lyrically told” (Booklist, starred review).

In Clement-Davies' sequel to The Sight, Fell proves itself in every way to be at least as unputdownable as its predecessor. Without going into detail about the story and run the risk of 'giving anything away,' Fell is a thrilling adventure about the lonely wolf, Fell, and a girl looking for answers to the visions that haunt them and both must overcome their natures to share a journey that will bring their worlds -- animal and human -- to a greater understanding. In telling his masterful tale, Clement-Davies has created a plot that is rich with suspense, pathos, and tenderness and has enhanced the development of characters the reader came to know 'or hate' in The Sight 'e.g., Huttser, Palla, Kar, and Morgra to a name a few', as well as introduced several new unforgettable characters. Fell is more than just an excellent book -- it is an excellent reading experience. In reading this book it is important to keep in mind that the book is at least just as much about the new human character, Alina, and her quest to find her real family, as it is about what Fell's life has been like in the years since he left his pack in The Sight. As you'll see from other reviews, some readers are disappointed because they feel the book focuses more on the adventures of Alina and not enough about Fell whom they perceive of as having a more secondary role in the book. In my opinion, Fell is clearly the dominant character and Clement-Davies' has made the mysterious black wolf a character that will live on in readers' memories for many years to come. If you're like me when you Fell, you'll find yourself filled with joy and with pain as you feel that you are right there with Fell and Alina as they go through their incredible journey, both together and separately. I very highly recommend Fell, which should have wide appeal across age and intellectual levels. If you've read The Sight, do yourself a favor and put Fell high up on your reading list. If you haven't read The Sight, definitely read it first and then read Fell. You'll thank yourself for doing so.

This book was awesome. Although I kind of wished it talked more about Fell than Alina I still thought it was really good. I was glad when fell saved the pack, too, from Jalgan, and that he and Tarlar got to be together. It was interesting the bond between Alina and Fell because in The Sight, the wolves were afraid of the humans. I'm glad Fell made new friends like Alina and Tarlar, and overall, I think Fell was one of my favorite books.

I had finished reading The Sight a few months ago. When I saw Fell online, I just couldn't believe it! I read some of the reviews on Fell and saw how much people said it was different than the Sight and Fire Bringer. So I decided to ignore the reviews, for once. I bought Fell, and after reading Brisingr I started to read it. The first chapter had me confused already. "Did David Clement actually write this?" The style was unrecognizable. "The next chapters will be better," I figured. Well they weren't really bad, except they had nothing to do with the series and were about humans, which David Clement-Davies seems to have a rough time trying to write about. The entire book was different and it was more confusing than any book I've ever read. It didn't catch up with the excellence of The Sight. The only good parts were the last few chapters. I liked the cover, though. I hope that Davies's next novel is better.

It's a great story but at times it seemed like it didn't connect to The Sight in any way whatsoever. I loved The Sight and was looking forward to this one but a lot of the time i was left waiting for even the slightest mention of the main character. It was good but I desperately wanted this to be about Fell and not Alina. This new addition adds way too many unnecessary characters that are not even wolves, thus taking a lot away from the greatness and wonder of the story. It may be a good enough sequel but just doesn't live up the the first, and therefore anyone can just read the first and toss this one aside as it is almost a totally different book.

This novel would be awesome standing on its own, but when being compared to the outstanding novels Fire Bringer and The Sight, it isn't even half as good. But, I guess, those two novels can not be beat. I guess I just didn't enjoy it as much because the other novels seemed more realistic, where the animals didn't communicate with people. Clement-Davies isn't half as good with writing about people, in my opinion, but is marvelous when writing about animals. I just didn't like that Fell was able to communicate with Alina, it just seemed a little too much out-there for me. But a good read, nevertheless, and definately recomended, but perhaps before reading Fire Bringer and The Sight.

Such heartfelt characters, the story of Fell is just as jaw-dropping and heart pounding as Larka's story in The Sight! Beautifully written.

Fell was a great book. It shows how Fell had a dark path and a light path ahead of him. This book can relate to many people, how many people have cross roads ahead of them in life and can have someone influence them so much that they go onto one path then end up changing it. I'm only a high school freshman, i can honestly say that this book has had a major affect of my life.

Being a Grandmother of a 13 year-old granddaughter whom I have been blessed to have live with the for the first 13 years of her life has taught me a love of books that will forever be with me! I have spent the last 13 years reading to her, reading with her, and now reading what she is reading once the has finished. However, I skipped the Twilight series even though she loved it. "The Sight" and "Fell" by far have been my favorite series that she has shared with me. Both books are thrilling, heartbreaking, humorus, and remind us that "nature" demands respect! I especially enjoyed Fell because it included humans and real life events and feelings that happen in our lives today. UNFORGETTABLE!

First, I better state that I picked up this book without realizing beforehand that there was one that came before it. See, I had found it, preowned, in a store, figured it'd be a good read, and bought it. Only realized later that it was actually a sequel. Regardless, I read it anyway, and for someone jumping into the middle of the story, I got along pretty well. The book stands on it's own enough that reading the book before it ("The Sight") isn't 100 percent necessary, and the book explains details from the last book enough to get along. I don't recommend anyone else start reading with this book, like I did, but it's not the end of the world if you do. What drew me into the book the most is probably the idea of The Sight and it's powers, particularly it's ability to communicate with other species of animal (and man, although in "Fell", that's a moot point). That's what got me to start reading. What kept me reading wasn't so much intrigue of The Sight, the mystery of the story's plot, the action (for there's actually not that much of it) and so forth, but really the characters constant search of trying to figure out who they are, and how they fit into the world, and "Fell" covers several aspects of this, mostly with Fell himself as well as Alina, but also with other characters, both good and evil. It's a tale that makes you think about life, your existence, and all the joys and agonies that go with it. It's also a touch religious in a way, though it doesn't really favor any particular one. In fact, at times, it's more atheist than anything, but in the end, the story ends the matter in such a way by taking no sides. If there is truth to religion or not, it didn't really matter so much for the characters, so long as they lived self-satisfying, happy lives. At least, that was the message I walked away from it. My only criticisms is that the story got a little long winded at points, particularly with various descriptions that are, granted, pretty, but not always needed. That, and certain aspects of the story were quite predictable, like who would pair up with who, and who the king of the Griffin Order REALLY was. I did NOT expect Morgra's true allegiances, though. Beyond that, I greatly enjoyed the book, and plan to go back and read the first one someday (even though it's more or less been spoiled for me.)
