Publisher Comments:

The sequel to Through Wolf’s Eyes and Wolf’s Head, Wolf’s Heart

Smart like a human. Smart like a wolf. Better yet, smart like both.

With Through Wolf’s Eyes and Wolf’s Head, Wolf’s Heart, Jane Lindskold introduced us to young Firekeeper, one of the most appealing heroines in modern fantasy. Raised far from humans by smart, language-using wolves, then brought back to the court of Hawk Haven, Firekeeper has had to learn to cope with human society. And as it turns out, for one raised amidst intelligent social carnivores, the intrigues of the human pack aren't all that unfamiliar.

Now Melina Shield, the beautiful, unscrupulous, and thoroughly discredited sorceress whose power-hungry intrigues have already made so much trouble for Firekeeper, is once again using her power to cloud men's minds. She has induced the ruler of New Kelvin to marry her. This is bad news all round.

It's particularly bad news for Firekeeper. Melina has never abandoned her schemes to gain power through the use of forbidden ancient sorcery. And the leaders of the royal beasts who watch over this world have given Firekeeper — and her intelligent wolf companion, Blind Seer — the responsibility of stopping her.

This is bad news on a lot of fronts.

Praise for Jane Lindskold

"This engrossing tale of feral myth and royal intrigue offers plenty of

action as well as fascinating anthropological detail. . . . A beautiful and

complex book." --Publishers Weekly on Through Wolf's Eyes

"What do you get when you mix lost magic and feral children with dynastic

politics, wolf social dynamics, treason, and overambitious social-climbing

parents? You get Jane Lindskold's new novel, Through Wolf's Eyes, and another

stay-up-to-finish-the-last-page read.” --David Weber

"Very satisfying. . . . As good as, if not better than, the previous book,

unlike some trilogies where the second book is the weakest of the whole."

--Charles de Lint on Wolf's Head, Wolf's Heart

"Her characters live--they're real, but they are different. And the world

they live in lingers in the mind; heroic, squalid, exotic, everyday. I was

convinced that it went on by itself when I turned the last page. Bravo!"

--S. M. Stirling on Through Wolfs Eyes
