Raised by sentient, language-using wolves, then later plunged back into human society, young Firekeeper has found that her training as a pack animal stands her in good stead amidst deadly political intrigues.
When Firekeeper and her Royal Wolf companion Blind Seer are kidnapped and dragged overseas, they must maneuver for their lives in an unfamiliar new society. Unlike other humans, their captors are quite aware that Royal animals like Blind Seer exist, are intelligent, and can speak to each other. They've kidnapped Firekeeper and Blind Seer because they want to learn to speak to their own Royal animals.
Increasingly, though, it appears that those Royal animals are being held in polite and unobtrusive bondage. Firekeeper wants to find out the truth -- and, if necessary, free them...
JANE LINDSKOLD lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
--Publishers Weekly on Wolf Captured (starred review)
“An utterly fascinating world that readers can thoroughly lose themselves in.”
--Romantic Times on Wolf Captured
"What do you get when you mix lost magic and feral children with dynastic politics, wolf social dynamics, treason, and over-ambitious, social-climbing parents? You get Jane Lindskold's new novel Through Wolf's Eyes and another stay-up-to-finish-the-last-page read."
"Her characters live--they're real, but they are different. And the world they live in lingers in the mind; heroic, squalid, exotic, everyday. I was convinced that it went on by itself when I turned the last page. Bravo!"
--S. M. Stirling on Through Wolf's Eyes
"This engrossing tale of feral myth and royal intrigue offers plenty of action as well as fascinating anthropological detail ... A beautiful and complex book."
--Publishers Weekly on Through Wolf's Eyes
"Very satisfying... As good as, if not better than, the previous book, unlike so many trilogies where the second book is the weakest of the whole."
--Charles de Lint on Wolf's Head, Wolf's Heart
"An utterly fascinating world that readers can thoroughly lose themselves in."
