Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up–After a war that raged for many years, Oliza Shardae Cobriana has become the heir to both the avian and serpiente thrones. As a symbol of peace at Wyvern's Court, she is expected to choose a mate who will become her king, but how can she choose between the serpiente, Urban, and the avian, Marus? When the princess is kidnapped and a note is found claiming she has abdicated the throne, mistrust erupts again between the races. Characters from Hawksong (2003), Snakecharm (2004), and Falcondance (2005, all Delacorte) are mentioned but no prior knowledge of the previous books is needed to understand the plot. A novel about the difficulty of bringing together two very diverse races and the sacrifices inherent in ruling, Wolfcry is a tale of the spirit and love that this ruling class has for its subjects.–June H. Keuhn, Corning East High School, NY

This is the fourth book in a series.
Kimberly E. Phillips
I don't really feel much for her, but I don't dislike her either--that's the problem, you just don't know much about her.
Feelah the tigress
This book is a bit slow in some parts, but that didn't ruin the overall book.

WOLFCRY, the fourth installment in Amelia Atwater-Rhodes's Kiesha'ra series, is an emotional, suspense-filled adventure. Oliza Shardae Cobriana, heir to Wyvern's Court, is considering male suitors from both the serpiente and avian races. She knows that choosing one will mean repercussions from the other, and maybe even war. On an evil night, one of her serpiente suitors is beaten so badly that he will never dance again, and as Oliza tries to help him while preventing a riot and a war, she is kidnapped. It doesn't help matters that at times she seems to slip into madness, having spells in which she is not aware of what's happening.

Oliza tries to remain clearheaded, but the pack of lions who hold her clip her wings, the worst fate possible for an avian, and drug her so she cannot change shape. They take her deep into the forest, and when she begins to think clearly again, she realizes that weeks have passed.

A wolf tries to help Oliza make her way in the woods, and she senses that it's a female who chooses not to change into human form out of fear. When she meets the local wolf tribe and its pack leader tries to assault her, Oliza knows why the female is afraid. After escaping, she collapses from hunger and illness; the wolf returns to Betia, its human form, to save her life.

The two survive together and encounter a tribe called the Obsidians, a rebel group. They're taken in and the bond between Betia and Oliza grows. They enjoy their time with the tribe, but eventually Oliza discovers that guards from Wyvern's Court are out looking for her. The two women return to find that tensions have heightened even more between the avians and the serpiente. Oliza's cobra father wants her to choose a mate, thinking that this will bring the people closer together.

A friend recommended me this series and I have to admit that I didn't think I would enjoy it. However, I'm glad she did recommend them because they're great books and this one especially. Oliza has to find a way to unite her families' courts and herself along the way. It's a great story of her journey.

Also, I don't feel the author is trying to 'push' anything upon her readers. She's writing a story and you don't have to enjoy the tale. I do enjoy it.

Although there are very few reviews, most have expressed their dislike for this book. I must say I'm surprised.

I will admit Wolfcry was my least favorite in the series. It is not for most of the reasons listed by others. I think Wolfcry offered brilliant perspective.

I really liked that we were finally able to meet and work with the wolves in this series. I never truly had a firm grasp of their presence in the former books. Before I begin my review, I hope that those who read it have an open mind.

Wolfcry is written from Oliza's perspective. It is the time when she must soon name her king and truly unify the avians and the serpiente. Before she has even made this decision, one of her suitors is harmed. Oliza is very uncertain as to what she is to do.

In falcondance we learn that Zane Cobriana's brother had a child. This child is half falcon and half cobra. She had been locked on the island of the falcons forever stuck in a cruel dark world. She is released from her ironically much loved prison, by falcon Nicias. This half serpent half falcon is the cousin to Oliza.

When Oliza's cousin warns her that she will do the wrong thing, Oliza does her best to make no decision. Soon after however, Oliza is abducted by the lions. Bewildered Oliza tries to escape and succeeds.

She is discovered by a lone female wolf. The wolf does not change form, but leads her to the camp of other wolves. Oliza seeks refuge there, but soon she finds she must leave when the alpha tries to harm her. She once again finds herself with the female wolf.

The two become very close friends and find refuge with the white vipers. They are welcomed and treated well. This is the part that many object to. Again I plead, keep an open mind.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The fourth book in the Kiesha'ra series is narated by Oliza Shardae Cobriana, Danica and Zane's only daughter. It takes place a few months after Nicias returns from Ahnmik. Oliza is stressed because she does no know who to choose as her mate. Men from both sides of Wyverns Court are seeking her affection. Urban: a sweet understanding serpent from the dancers guild, and Marus a conservative but kind avian. Who should she chose? Shortly after Urban is nearly beaten to death for being on the avian side of Wyverns Court, Oliza is kidnapped by the lion mercenaries. She escapes, and through her journey she makes some new friends and thinks about what she will do when she returns to Wyverns Court.

There are plenty of interesting twists and turns in this book, but it is slow and confusing at times. You will definitely be shocked by the end of this book. Though not my favorite of the series I would still reccomend reading it because the events at the end of Wolfcry lead into Wyvernhail. The final Kiesha'ra book.

Format: Hardcover
Sadly disappointed with the forth volume. Character development was strongly lacking, and the storyline unfortunately did not flow. In fact the whole story felt as though it was rushed along to fit a slapdash ending that made no rational sense.

To go into further detail, it seemed as though the characters were written to fit the story, and not the story written to fit the characters. I highly enjoyed her other books, yet I will think twice in buying the next volume in this series.
