Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In the thrilling fifth installment of Lindskold's Firekeeper fantasy saga, Firekeeper, a human girl raised by a pack of wise wolves, receives a message from Truth, an oracular jaguar, that Firekeeper is the only one who can help her regain her sanity, which was lost in battle in the previous book, Wolf Captured (2004). Firekeeper's wolflike sense of curiosity leads her to accept Truth's challenge, and she soon takes to the road accompanied by, among others, Blind Seer, her faithful wolf companion, and Darian Carter, a native of the land of Liglim. They seek to reunite Truth with her senses and to find out who belongs to the voice Truth is hearing in her head. With a smaller cast of characters and more interaction between animals, this volume is more tightly focussed than earlier entries in the series. The intriguing plot makes for a quick and enjoyable read. (Apr.)

From Booklist

Orphaned and raised by wolves, Firekeeper is at home in the wild as well as closer to her wolf companion, Blind Seer, than she ever could be to a human. Now one of the sentient Wise Beasts requires their help. The jaguar Truth's gift of prophecy has driven her mad and separated her from her spirit, but a voice in her head urges her to bring Firekeeper to open a door and thereby be made whole again. More curious than anything else, Firekeeper and Blind Seer respond to Truth's summons. They discover evidence of possible sorcery and ties to firsthand acquaintances of theirs who have a serious interest in prohibited ancient magic. They agree to find out what evil those people may be up to. Evil may be closer than they think, for Truth, although restored to herself, still hears the voice. As this quest that flirts with tedium continues, Truth becomes ever more convinced that the voice may well belong to the Meddler, who has a reputation for being very dangerous indeed. Paula Luedtke

Ms. Lindskold continues to write literate, well thought out fantasy.

I found that this book in particular set itself apart by introducing a completely new venue and various new subplots.

Wolf Hunting and the whole series of 6 books was one of my very favorite fantasy books of all time.

Ms. Lindskold continues to write literate, well thought out fantasy. This continuation of the "Firekeeper and Blind Seer" saga proves to be the best yet. Ms. Lindskold refuses to be predictable. Besides the Wolf series she has written enough unrelated books such as "Child of a Rainless Year", to prove the extent of her imagination. An imagination that does not need to construct unbelievable scenarios and long descriptive passages to carry you into her world. The story alone carrys you with it. We are lucky indeed to have such a writer.

With the fifth installment of the "Firekeeper" series, Jane Lindskold continues to uphold her tradition of fine storytelling. In order to understand the full background of the Firekeeper universe, I would recommend reading the rest of the series in order. While there are enough references and history provided to allow the book to stand on its own, readers will certainly benefit from reading the previous four books in this series.

I found that this book in particular set itself apart by introducing a completely new venue and various new subplots. It did deviate somewhat from the previous books in that Lindskold narrowed her focus somewhat, zeroing in more tightly on some key characters. Lindskold is particularly adept at character development, so the tighter focus gives even greater depths to already likable (if not downright charming) characters.

While set in a "sword and sorcery" universe, it is not the typical fantasy novel one would expect. More intellectually and relationship oriented, Lindskold draws the reader in and really endears the reader to her characters, promising a delightful book that is literally impossible to put down at times.

WARNING: May cause drowsiness due to the inability of the reader to put the book down. May also cause post-story depression once the reader finishes the book and is once again returned to real-life.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I got a 58 on an exam because of this book. I seriously could not put it down. Jane Lindskold writes in a way that absolutely captivates the reader, drawing them fully into the story, surrounding them in a world that holds a plethora of surprises. Her imagery is so keen that I see every little detail of her world in my mind's eye, from the colour of Derian Carter's hair to the wild battles that they must fight.

In this installment of the Firekeeper series Lindskold continues to develop the increasingly intriguing story arc that has been going on through each of her novels. Magic and the Old World, which were only mentioned with disgust in the first installment of the series, now begins to take an increasingly important role in the lives of Firekeeper and our friends. While the book can stand on its own, I would highly recommend reading the first four books so you can completely understand all of the undertones and references this one has.

Lindskold's characters are seamless and completely relatable, even though they may be a wolf, a feral child and a carter's son. At times I find myself more interested in the character development than the actual story, but that is not a bad thing in the least. Her characters are so well developed that they actually seem like real people, like one day I could wake up and Derian Carter would be walking down the street. If Lindskold suddenly decided to end her current plot and simply write about the characters lives, I could honestly say that I would not mind. In this installment, without giving too much away, we get a visit from a few old friends, a disease that threatens the life of our protagonists, and a transformation that will leave Lindskold's readers shocked.

I, too, felt the need to slog through this dense novel instead of enjoy it. I didn't skip the parts with Derian and other characters - as another reviewer said here. Plik is a true delight! And Derian, well, you'll have to read the book. He and his struggles may be worth the price of admission, alone. I've read all the other Firekeeper books and I will read Wolf Blood, but perhaps not immediately. This book did seem to meander, as a book with an unknown quest, to an unknown place to find unknown people, with some unreliable information givers as sources might. But the whole thing left me a bit unsettled, unsure of what happened, a bit frustrated, when I finished the book.

I think I liked this as much as book 1. Maybe more because I already knew the main characters. I'm releaved about this, because I really didn't care much for the in-between books.

Still, Jane is one of the better fantasy authors at creating real worlds with believable, fully-fleshed characters. It's 2:30 AM, and I just finished reading -- even though my work will suffer, tomorrow. I really couldn't put it down.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Wolf Hunting (2006) is the fifth fantasy novel of the Wolf series, following Wolf Captured. In the previous volume, Shivadtmon killed Wahn, but was captured and turned over to the u-Liall to tell the whole plot. The Wise Dolphins brought back Dantarahma's body and let it float ashore. Rahniseeta was selected as his replacement in the u-Liall, so her engagement to Derian was now socially and politically impossible. Derian and Barnet are later returned to the north to carry word to their monarchs and the families of the lost sailors.

Several of the maimalodalum died during the intrusion, including Questioner. Still, Questioner remained alive and awake long enough for Firekeeper to have a final conversation with him. Then she and Blind Seer ran out into the wilderness for a long while.

In this novel, the Wise Jaguar diviner Truth has been lost in the possibilities for over a year. She hears a mocking voice calling her and follows through the threads. Then she finds herself blocked by a door. She calls out for Firekeeper and the maimalodalum hear her.

Firekeeper and Blind Seer have been roaming the Misheemnekuru islands for a full year. They have been visiting various packs, helping where needed, and gaining reputations for courage and wisdom. They have even acquired a pack of their own, with Dark Death and the pregnant Moon Frost joining them. Then young Rascal comes to them and Moon Frost has two pups that live; the others die of the deformities common to the island inhabitants.

One day in the heat of the summer, Lovable the Wise Raven comes to the pack to summon Firekeeper and Blind Seer to the maimalodalum council.
