Review

Praise for the first book in the Wolves of the Beyond series.

"This is a soulful, searching read consumed with the spiritual journeys of animals and the ethereal connection between slayer and slain. [W]ith an invigorating ending that bodes well for the next volume." - Booklist

"The author builds a captivating world of forest, snow and volcanoes populated by intelligent animals and weaves a compelling story sure to bring readers back for the second installment." - Kirkus

More About the Author

Hi Readers! Thanks for coming by my author page. I've written all sorts of books - from fantasy about animals to books about science. One of my favorite animal fantasy series, Guardians of Ga'Hoole, is a major motion picture. I liked writing about Ga'Hoole so much that I decided to revisit that world in a different series, Wolves of the Beyond. I've recently added a new Guardians book: The Rise of A Legend, the story of Ezylryb, the great sage of the Ga'Hoole Tree. Another new book just came out, the first in the Horses of the Dawn series. I think of it as an equine retelling of the Spanish conquest of the New World. Visit my website, www.kathrynlasky.com for the latest news. All my best, Kathryn

I absolutely love Lasky's books, and I am (arguably) a grown woman. This one picks up where the last one left off, and young readers who read all of the Guardians books will get a special treat in this one (no spoilers, though - read the book!)

The thing I like best about these books is how intensely character-driven they are. All of the characters - even Faolin, who in the hands of a less capable author might have been idealized or Mary Sue'd to the point of caricature - change over the course of time, and their growth drives the drama, the suspense, and the plot. This is awesome, because it becomes an opportunity for the parents of kids who like the books to talk about the themes of the book (leadership, trust, self-doubt, stereotypes, religion, spirituality, dogma, differences) on whatever level a particular kid is ready to discuss AND relate it to personal growth.

Fast read for anyone over about 8 years old. Good vocabulary words through sixth grade. Subject matter can be experienced on many levels, making the book interesting for all ages. This is a good series for kids who already like the Erin Hunter and Brian Jacques books. One caveat is that the series raises some complicated social and religious questions. You may wish to discuss these issues with your child, especially if your viewpoint differs.

I've read the whole series over and over ever since I got them. It makes me want to cry when I know that this is the last book. You won't waste your money buying this book, or any other book in the series! Kathryn lasky makes an even better book than ever before!

I honestly think this series was one of Kathryn Lasky's masterpieces alongside with her Guardians of Ga'hoole, but after reading all of these books and I'm in the process of once again re-reading them and I still find them absolutely flawless, I stay up until late hours listening to the audiobooks of this series(Sadly one has not been released for this final book which saddens me) and it is a fun way to burn the hours away with this amazing series.

I think Kathryn Lasky did a wonderful job with this series and this book but I hope she eventually revists the beyonds and the wolves as I think that they need more screentime than they did, this is my alltime favorite book and I shall never forget this book series ever.

If you are deciding upon buying this book or the series, I greatly motivate you to, this book and the rest in the series are absolutely amazing.

My daughter and I both read the entire series of these books quickly. Once we finished one book, we went right to the next one. We didn't want to put them down. Great Series if you want to get your kids interested in books and keep them reading!
