Maniye's father is the Wolf clan's chieftain, but she's an outcast. Her mother was queen of the Tiger and these tribes have been enemies for generations. Maniye also hides a deadly secret. All can shift into their clan's animal form, but Maniye can take on tiger and wolf shapes. She refuses to disown half her soul, so escapes, rescuing a prisoner of the Wolf clan in the process. The killer Broken Axe is set on their trail, to drag them back for retribution. Maniye's father plots to rule the north, and controlling his daughter is crucial to his schemes. However, other tribes also prepare for strife. Strangers from the far south appear too, seeking allies in their own conflict. It's a season for omens as priests foresee danger, and a darkness falling across the land. Some say a great war is coming, overshadowing even Wolf ambitions. A time of testing and broken laws is near, but what spark will set the world ablaze?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The plot was extremely unique and refreshing, yet the world Tchaikovsky created retains an organic quality that feels familiar and authentic. Tchaikovsky's characters are dynamic and beyond incredibly interesting. This book captivated me not only while I was reading it, but has continued to do so ever since I closed the last page. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, so please just do yourself a favor and read it. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
