Lone Wolf is the first of a series and it introduces the main character, Faolan. Faolan is a wolf pup which was abandoned shortly after birth due to a deformity. Fortunately for him, he is quickly discovered by a grizzly bear, who he names Thunderheart, who has recently lost her cub. She adopts him as her own and raises him in bear-fashion.
Unlike too many books written for this age group, Ms. Lasky breathes life into her characters. They do not read as "talking animals" but as sentient beings with very distinct personalities, thoughts and feelings - they really come alive on the pages. My daughter enjoyed this introduction to Faolan and his world so much that she is steadily reading the entire series.
On a more personal note, my niece's parents are avid hunters. Our family has a Native American background, so while I do not have any problem with hunting or them teaching her how to hunt, I thought that these books would also help her learn to be respectful to the animal spirits and appreciate them for their contribution to her dinner table!
So, you probably can see that I absolutely adore this book. But I think that a buyer should be informed of the pros AND cons. So, here's a few things I didn't like quite as much. 1: I don't like being forced to buy all the books in a series to find out what happens. Well, a lot of mysterious things happen in the first couple books, but they aren't resolved until book 5, Spirit Wolf. It's like one big book that has been chopped in pieces. 2: A lot of the wolf words are hard to remember. I've read the series enough to know what a "malcadh", "gadderheal", "byrrgis", and everything else is, but that was a bit confusing at first. I'm not saying she should have taken out the wolf words completely, as they're a wonderful addition to the wolf lore, but I would have liked a key. A chart of the great chain would have been nice too, but since I have a Kindle I highlighted it so I could see it easily.
So, all in all, this is a fantastic book that I highly suggest you read. This was my favorite book for years, and it probably is. This is one that can probably be found at most libraries, but to me it was worth buying. Happy reading!
