While this book was alright, I found it lacking a bit compared to it's predecessors. In many ways it felt like a 'redo'. Like I was reading something similar to the previous books, which I suppose is alright, but perhaps I am just spoiled by narrative fiction that builds.There wa sa bit of this. The elements away from Dion, especially 'Siker' the mythical rebel who marks the bodies of the raiders she kills was quite interesting, but the main story-line felt like a rehash of material we've already been over. I was grateful they dealt with the problem of the wolves, the wolf-walkers, and how they were being used for ill purpose by the Raiders and their ultimate master. However the rest; form Dion's relationship with her future Mate, to the various rushes through wooded ground all felt a little flat. Something I had read before; another travel-log through a semi-mythical forest.Some of the world building was good. The dribs and drabs we get about the 'Ancients' obvioulsy a previous star-faring civilization, get more interesting in this volume. Interesting enough that the promise of more such information in a future one might keep me reading the series.I feel on a level I might have enjoyed this book more if I was younger. It harkens back to the Dragon-riders of Pern and a certain 'type' of fiction that I have seen done in better ways. It wasn't bad, just not excellent either.If you like wolves, or travel-louges through fantasy forests, or just want to see more of the same from this series, this book is for you.
Almost a year after the end of Shadow Leader, we find out what has become of Dion and Aranur, as well as Namina and Conin. More wolves, more running of the trail. But less story.My least favorite of the Wolfwalker books, although it wraps up the story developed in the first two (like a trilogy) it feels a bit disjointed, not quite complete. Much as I like Dion I would have wanted to hear more about the Siker... Also, I guess I missed the interactions with the characters missing from the other books (notably Rhom and Tyrel).
I read the wolfwaker series so many times as a young girl and I was impressed with the characters and the magical world that Harper created. To be able to be telepathic with wolves, able to fight and heal telepathically became a childhood fantasy of mine. The characters in this series are strong and amazing with dweaknesses that also shine!
A great book! Harper kept the intensity and momentum of the first two going in this one, which I really loved--no going quietly into the night for these characters. The ending felt a little abrupt, but everything else was wonderful.
line is amazing and the details are so wonderful you feel like your actually there! They were such great stories when I was a young girl that I reread them as an adult!
human animal pairing, on a psychological connection between a young girl and her wolf in attempt to help her world... this is a great series.
