Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-9-A sequel to Wild Magic (Atheneum, 1992). Veralidaine Sarrasri, a.k.a. Daine, is on the road with her mentor and tutor, the master mage Numair Salmalin; her faithful pony, Cloud; and Skysong, the dragon kit she is raising. They are answering a summons from the Long Lake wolf pack that was once Daine's only family. Help is urgently needed to oppose the "two-leggers" who are despoiling the pack's home, but as they enter the valley, Daine and Numair learn that more is amiss. High treason is afoot, and only extreme efforts-natural and magical-can save the Kingdom of Tortall. Orphaned Daine, now 14, has always been able to mind-speak with animals, but now she is also learning to heal their wounds magically, to enter their minds and see with their eyes, and to change temporarily into animal form. New readers may have some trouble believing the premise of this book, lacking the background information so carefully presented in Wild Magic. Wolf-Speaker is more of a simple adventure than the exploration of characters, feelings, and relationships found in the earlier title. Wild Magic is a powerful fantasy, and its readers will clamor for, and probably not be disappointed by, this sequel. It resolves its conflicts quite satisfactorily, but there is still room for further adventures for Daine and her friends.

From Booklist

Gr. 7-9. In this sequel to Wild Magic (1992), the pack of wolves that helped 14-year-old Daine avenge her family's death call her back from her mage training at King Jonathan's court. Humans ("two-leggers") are ruining Dunlath Valley. Daine, who speaks the language of animals and is learning to enter animals' minds and shape-change, works to help the two-leggers and the animals move beyond species prejudice to prevent an ecological disaster and the overthrow of the beneficent King Jonathan. Suspense is stronger than characterization here, but the exploration of diverse animal personalities will intrigue readers. Mary Harris Veeder --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Wolf Speaker" is the second of Tamora Pierce's "Immortals Quartet" concerning fourteen-year-old Daine, a young woman who possesses "Wild Magic", giving her the ability to communicate with animals, heal any animal wound, and in this book, to gradually change her form into any animal she wishes. Pierce jumps straight into the story without hardly any background information, so if you are unfamiliar with the fantasy realm of Tortall, I very highly recommend that you don't begin your journey with this book: start with "Wild Magic", or even better "The Lioness Quartet", Pierce's first books concerning Tortall.
Daine and her mentor Numair have been sent abroad in order to investigate the disappearance of several of the Queen's Riders, and in doing so Daine receives contact from the Long Lake wolf pack - the animals that she once ran wild with when they helped her avenge her murdered family. Their call to her is for help: their home is under threat from humankind's mining and construction that is destroying the natural habitat, and desperate to help her friends, Daine convinces Numair to help them.
But by helping the wolves, the two of them uncover even more secrets: the rulers of Dunlath, Lady Yolane and her consort - and Numair's old classmate - Tristan, are plotting to usurp the thrones of King Jonathon and Queen Thayet, by bribing the war-mongering empire of Charthak with the black diamonds they are acquiring through the mining that cause the animals so much trouble. As you may have already guessed, it's up to Daine, her powers, and the animals to put a stop to all of this, resulting in a plan that is sure to excite all readers once they hear of it.

The book, Wolf-Speaker, in the Immortals series, is a wonderful book. It is about a girl named Daine, 14, and a mage, her teacher, Numair, 30, who live in the time period with King Jonathan III, and Queen Thayet. The world is invaded with immortal creatures, such as dragons and Stormwings. Daine can mind-speak with animals using her Wild Magic. In the 2nd book in this series, Wolf-Speaker, Numair, their 2 horses, Spots and Mangle, her pony, Cloud, her dragon, Skysong or Kitten, and she go to heed the wolves of the Long Lake Pack's cry for help. People in Dunlath Valley are cutting down trees and turning the peaceful valley into a nightmare. She and Numair find out the awful plan Tristan (Numair's old mage school classmate) and Lady Yolane of Dunlath have for Dunlath Valley. Read this book and find out the excellent ending. Wolf lovers, like myself, will love this book.

I have always loved all of Tammy's books but this one gives you that feeling of let down after reading the first. As I say again, all of her books can and do get dippy and cheesy during some parts, but this one was just not great. It was a good book with a good story but it wasn't as great as a lot of her others---it even got boring. Recommened if you want to follow the seris, though!

In this novel, Daine, who is a shape-changer, is called by the pack that first sheltered her when her village was attacked by bandits. They have been driven out of their home range into new territory; now that land is under attack by humans who are ruining the land, tearing up the land and driving animals away. Traveling with her tutor, Numair, Daine and her companion travel to see what is going on, hoping to provide support. When they arrive, they find a world that is dying, and a kingdom that is preparing to attack Numair's home.
As Numair leaves Daine in order to inform the king, Daine is left with the pack, and must use her ability to become various animals as she begins a guerilla action against the enemy.
This book is the second in the series, and it is a wonderful addition. A great read with wonderful characters (both human and animal)! I would, however, recommend that readers go for the first book, Wild Magic, before reading this novel.

The main character isn't obnoxiously perfect, but she definitely has that "everyone she meets loves her" thing going on. And her powers just keep getting more amazing every chapter. The other characters in the book are all pretty much in a state of perpetual surprise when she unleashes yet another "magical ability that no one else could possibly do, ever!" On the other hand, it's fun to see a bunch of my old favorite characters, like Alanna the Lioness , her hubby and kids, and even good old Jonathan. I still love this world and the people within it, but Daine is just too....too much, I guess. There's never any feeling of real danger or struggle to overcome prejudice or, well, anything. Sure, something evil is stirring in the land, but we know from page one that Daina and her army of admiring powerful friends will overcome it. I just couldn't bring myself to worry too much over anyone, which sort of takes all the fun out of it.
