Remy is doubtful, but Celia disguises herself as a terrier (although her favorite form is the Fox) and stows away on Remy's ship as he returns to France. There Celia discovers that her new friend is a shapeshifter of another sort, a werewolf, and that his younger sister, about to change for the first time on her twelfth birthday, is in dire peril.
Celia soon comes to realize that there are some big gaps in her training, but with help from Remy and the gypsy girl Radilu (who not only has unusual abilities of her own, but a very odd horse as well), she discovers that quick thinking and teamwork may yet save the day.
Celia and the Wolf is aimed at middle-grade readers, but it's also quite entertaining for adult readers who enjoy a clever (and girl-powered) adventure. The next installment of the Shapeshifter Journals, Celia and the Mountain Lord, will continue Celia's tale.
Celia And The Wolf is a fast-paced story with non-stop action. Young girls will want to be Celia, and they’ll want Remy, Radilu and Crumpet as forever friends. This book is perfect for middle grade readers, but I enjoyed it immensely as a young-at-heart adult reader.
Donna Maloy has created an intriguing world full of rich characters that live in a charming setting. I am looking forward to visiting this world again and adventuring with Celia in the sequel.
The main character, Celia, is very human--despite her unusual abilities. She's not a "cookie-cutter" heroine. She is challenged. She sometimes fails.
In the Napoleonic era, Celia risks traveling between two countries that have uneasy relations as she helps someone in need. Celia soon learns that cultural norms are not always the same as home.
This author knows how to build good characters and a great paced story.
I recommend this YA book!
