Isla's Foxcraft skills are starting to improve. She has plenty of Maa, which is the energy and essence of all living things and necessary to be good at Foxcraft. She needs her skills, as her enemies are constantly hunting her. There are others who have lost their family as well and Isla is no longer on her own. She still wants to find Pirie and has an idea where he should be. While traveling through the forest Isla is looking for someone who can help her. She also has to stay away from the fox who enslaves others and makes them do his bidding, all would be lost if she'd fall into his hands. Isla thinks the Elders, a group of wise foxes with exceptional Foxcraft skills, should be able to help her. She needs to find them, so she can continue her mission. They might know more about her brother's whereabouts too. Isla keeps getting hints from Pirie, but he's trying to warn her against those who have taken him at the same time. Will she be able to make the progress she so desperately needs and will she find a way to stay out of the claws of the enemy? The Elders is a terrific story about magic, dangerous animals and friendship. I was impressed by Isla's bravery and her creativity. She always manages to rescue herself. She learns something new every single day, which is one of the reasons she manages to survive. Everything is scary, but she faces her fears and deals with them. She tries to make friends, but she doesn't know who's safe and who isn't and it isn't always easy to find out who she should and shouldn't rely on. Finding out if she'd be able to complete her mission kept me on the edge of my seat. Inbali Iserles has written another fantastic Foxcraft story. Her world building skills are mesmerizing. I love how she can really put herself into an animal's position, which makes her story gripping and exciting. I was captivated by her vivid descriptions of every new thing Isla encounters. She describes the dangers in a suspenseful way and knows how to build tension. The Foxcraft series is an amazing mix of magic, bravery and loyalty, which is something I absolutely loved.
