Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Brilliantly weaving together original research, lovable characters and a dynamic, thoroughly engaging plot, The Wolf Chronicles is an adventure story in the tradition of Clan of the Cave Bear and Watership Down. Promise of the Wolves is the first title in The Wolf Chronicles trilogy.

Review:

"The debut of former Jossey-Bass senior editor Hearst is a crackling foray into a dangerous past, the first of a projected trilogy. On Wide Valley plain 14,000 years ago, wolf Kaala is born into the Swift River pack — a half-breed outcast with Outsider blood. As she grows into adulthood, the spirited pup continues to come into conflict with pack leader Ruuqo. She also sneaks off to be with humans, who are encroaching on wolf territory and who often drive the wolves from their kills. Fraternization is strictly forbidden, but as Kaala's mother has foreseen in dreams, it may also be the key to saving every wolf and human in the valley. Hearst's remarkable fluency when writing in Kaala's voice is immediately absorbing. The mythologies of the societies she invents are underdeveloped, but the relationships between the human characters and the wolf characters are keenly felt, and the conflicts sharply imagined. Hearst's keen interpretations of wolf behavior, senses and sensibilities will enchant paranormal fans and animal lovers alike. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"For anyone who ever wanted to run with the wolves, this debut novel opens a window into life in the pack....Though the story is fairly simplistic, animal lovers will enjoy the close-up view of wolf-family dynamics....Recommended." Library Journal

Synopsis:

In the tradition of Clan of the Cave Bear and Watership Down comes a dynamic new series combining original research, endearing characters, and a thoroughly engaging plot.

Synopsis:

WHAT IS
THE PROMISE OF THE WOLF?

NEVER CONSORT WITH HUMANS.

NEVER KILL A
HUMAN UNPROVOKED.

NEVER ALLOW A MIXED-BLOOD WOLF TO LIVE.

At least that's what the wolves of the Wide Valley believe. Until a young wolf dares to break the rules — and forever alters the relationship between wolves and the humans who share their world.

This is the story of such a wolf. Born of a forbidden mixed-blood litter and an outcast after her mother is banished, Kaala is determined to earn a place in the Swift River pack. But her world is turned upside down when she saves a human girl from drowning. Risking expulsion from their pack and exile from the Wide Valley, Kaala and her young packmates begin to hunt with the humans and thus discover the long-hidden bond between the two clans. But when war between wolves and humans threatens, Kaala learns the lies behind the wolf 's promise. Lies that force her to choose between safety for herself and her friends and the survival of her pack — and perhaps of all wolf- and humankind.

Set 14,000 years ago, Promise of the Wolves takes us to a land where time is counted in phases of the moon, distance is measured in wolflengths, and direction by the scent of the nearest trail. Years of research into the world of wolves combines with mythical tale-telling to present a fantastical adventure set in a world filled with lore.

This book is very insightful into the lives of wolves in ancient times and how they developed a relationship with the humans of their time. For anyone who enjoy books such as 'Warriors' by Erin Hunter or 'Watership Down' by Richard Adams, will be unable to put this book down once they have started. Folowing the journey of a young, half blood wolf nammed Kaala as she seeks acceptance into her pack and faces the challenges laid before her. whilst trying to prevent the war between humans and wolves that is looming before them and threatening the futere existence of all humans and wolves on the planet. spellbindingly creative and mysterious, this book is a must-have for all animal fans.
