This is an awesome sequel to Lone Wolf (Wolves of the Beyond Series #1). It has a lot of interesting and unexpected twists to the story, and it's an "edge of your seat" plot. A great read for kids 8+!

One word. Wow. I read the first book and didn't think the second would be! Sometimes it got a little confusing and i had to reread parts but,it was really good and i might just have to read it a 2nd time. These books are so detailed and the plot line feels so real and interesting lke it ws actually happening i dunno why they decided to call it shadow though.... i've already finished the 3rd book and just so you know it has a bad word in it jusst sayin'... Anywayz the book is awesome and Faolan ends up actually getting some respect and he knows that he's somewhat special and he also learns (i feel like i'm saying "and" to often) that some wolves are afraid of the swirl on his paw like the other gnaw wolf Hepe.Hepe gets so scared of the print that he doesn't bite Faolan when the cheiften told him too...pretty weird right? Anyways that's the end of my review buy the book RIGHT NOW! It's worth it trust me! I loved this book once i started it was hard for me to stop! And again that one word... Wow.(only it's a bigger wow this time lol - i'm not kidding.. lol)

Hello my name is Fay. I am a good friend of Faolan. He says it portrays Thunderheart great! I will sadly not be in any books but I am Lanie's sister in Gaurdians of Ga'hoole. Suprisingly she is not in those books but she is the queen of foxes and a member of the band.

I love how Lasky lets the reader so easily believe that Faolan is real and lives in a world you want so much to visit. I thoroughly enjoyed her first series, Guardians of Ga'Hoole. I am a big fan of animal fantasy and so I was looking forward to reading this series. I haven't read the first in the series (our copy is lost) so I started with the second book.Once again, Lasky has created a wonderful world with all its traditions and history. The wolf clans are as fascinating any human group and it is very easy to just accept them and get into their story.The protagonist, Faolan, is mostly likable. I say mostly because sometimes his pride is just a little too much in your face. However, he cannot be entirely blamed for his perspective since he was cast out because of a physical disfigurement and he managed to survive when a grizzly bear raised him as her own.It is interesting seeing this wolf society from the viewpoint of those who are the lowest in their caste system. I found myself respecting and admiring the gnaw wolves more than the so-called normal wolves. They seemed to have a more realistic view of their place in the world and somehow being able to function with their own kind of dignity.I look forward to what the future will bring to Faolan. He is now a Watcher of the Ring of Sacred Volcanoes and I am sure he will still wind of having to deal with his old enemy Heep and perhaps will still try to find his mother. I am sure any who fell in love with the owls of Ga'Hoole, will love the wolves as well. I also love the cover art. I recommend this series to those who enjoy good animal fantasy.
