Overview


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.

The squel of the sight, it host many of the smae main charecters as the first book but also gives a human look at this world as well.

A nice sequel to The Sight. While Fell lacks some of the "oomph" of Clement-Davies previous works like "Fire Bringer" and "The Sight" it still was a lovely story and read even though at times the book seemed to be dragging along, with no particular direction. Fell proves to be another thriving work by Clement-Davis. Fell does not stick to the same formula used in The Sight and Fire Bringer. Instead, it borrows some of the elements from these two novels, and introduces a new human element and how humans interact with nature.

The Sight, by David Clement-Davies, is about a strong pack of wolves that go on an incredulous journey. The book starts off when you meet all of the members of the pack, who are Hutser, the leader, Palla, Hutser¿s mate, Kipcha, Hutser¿s sister, Khaz, the beta wolf, the weakest one, Bran, and Brassa, the packs story-teller. Hutser and Palla soon have a litter of cubs, but two of them die. The remaining are named Fell and Larka. Later on in the story you then find out that Larka possess a special gift known as the sight. This power lets the user look into other people¿s minds, talk with every kind of animal, and to even take over someone¿s body. She first encountered it on her first hunt with her family. When she first attacks a wild deer, she could feel the pain that was going through the deer¿s body. She also could see through a bird¿s eye that was flying overhead. Later, her whole family found that their home was being attacked by humans and had to make a break for the forest. When the forest was safe, they came out to regroup, but Palla¿s evil stepsister Morgra confronted them. She had asked to be apart of their pack, but Hutser had refused and tried to shoo her off. On that note, Morgra put a curse on the pack to kill them off slowly one by one. Frightened by the threat, they turned to Brassa for help. Brassa then told all of them the secret of Morgra. That secret was how she was accidently thought a murderer when she tried to save a wolf cub. She had accidently bitten too hard and killed the cub. Brassa also told the family of the fortuneteller Tsinga, who could help Larka with the sight. As they began to travel to Tsinga, Brassa had died and so the curse began. Khaz, Kipcha, and Bran all died through the journey. Before they had gotten to the fortuneteller and the curse had happened, the pack had met Palla¿s brother Skop and their new member Kar. They soon accepted Kar into the pack and made him Larka and Fell¿s new brother. After they left the old fortuneteller, who was then killed by Morgra¿s Night hunters, they searched for Tsarr and Skart, a wolf and an eagle. The pack was told by Tsinga that they would help Larka master the sight. Soon after they left, they got to a river full of ice. The family had crossed over, but Fell had disappeared throughout the ice. With that the two parents had a massive fight on the ice and Larka and Kar ran away. Larka and Kar had gotten to a large forest when a fire began. The fire separated them and Larka went to find her mentors. She then found them, but they were with a small human baby, which in a prophecy it was said to show the animals the greatest secret of all. She spent a long time with them until she found herself ready to face Morgra, but then she found out that her parents were captured by a pack of reel wolves and were being forced to kill each other. When Larka had gotten to them, the rebel group was in war with Morgra¿s night hunters and spectral beings called searchers that were conjured by Morgra. When the fighting was over, the remaining rebels decided to help Larka and face Morgra. When they reached Morgra, Larka found that her brother Fell didn¿t die on the ice, but was alive. Although he thought he was a Satan like creature called Wolfbane, Larka managed to wake him from his evil deception. When Larka had faced Morgra, she first looked into the little child¿s mind and gave the ultimate vision. It showed that man was an animal also and that its actions could eventually end the world. Soon after that, Morgra pounced at Larka and quarreled with her on a rickety bridge. The bridge failed and crashed to the ground leaving Morgra and Larka dead. Fell and the others managed to escape and mourned for their lost family member. While I read this book, the only thought that came to my mind was wow. All the factors that David Clement-Davies touched about the reality of a human were fantastic. Throughout the story he wrote from another animal¿s perspective of wh

Fell was an engrossing read. It is an anthropormorphic tale that is much simpler than Watership Down, yet a little more dark than Redwall. I thought it was an interesting examination of free will vs. destiny. Perhaps I read a bit too much into this book, but it was fantastic YA fiction.

This second book in The Sight series gives another look into the mind of wild wolves. But they're not just ordinary wolves, some have special powers. In this book a wolf --Fell-- has visions and he can see into the minds of animals. This power is exactly the thing that ostracized him from his kind. In Fell he has to use his gift to help a young girl --Alina-- trek through the dangerous forest to find her real home. But not only do the humans want to kill Fell, for "stealing" one of their own, and Alina for secrets unknown. But can they both make it to their homes without being killed in the process?I loved how both this book and The Sight were told through the point of view of wolves. It made the books so original and fascinating. But the wolves seemed very smart, and easy to relate to. The plot of this book keeps you guessing the entire time, and the point of view of the book Fell changes between Fell and Alina, which made the background easier to understand. This book, and The Sight were amazing books that I would recommend to anyone.

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.
