In the midst of the dangerous initiation hunt, Shard takes the unexpected advice of a strange she-wolf who seeks him out, and hints that Shard's past isn't all that it seems. To learn his past, Shard must abandon the future he wants and make allies of those the gryfons call enemies.
When the gryfon king declares open war on the wolves, it throws Shard's past and uncertain future into the turmoil between.
Now with battle lines drawn, Shard must decide whether to fight beside his king . . .or against him.

I first heard about this book because of an artist whose work I follow, and finally broke down and got an e-book copy during a promotional event surrounding the release of its sequel. This book is absolutely WONDERFUL. I can't recommend it enough. If you like young adult fantasy literature, you should definitely give this one a read. The characters are well fleshed-out and feel very real, as do the settings and the cultures you learn about along the way. It's something of a coming-of-age story, certainly, but the writing style is rich with imagery and easy to read. It does end on a note that will make you yearn for more, so make sure you are prepared to dive right into the series.
