Description

A gripping adventure set in ancient times. The second wolf-narrated novel in The Wolf Chronicles brings wolves and humans together—for better or for worse.

14,000 years ago, wolves and humans shared a destiny.

The rules of the Wide Valley wolves were clear: Never consort with humans; never kill a human unprovoked; never allow a mixed-blood wolf to live.

When she was little more than a pup, Kaala, born of mixed blood and nearly killed for it, found herself irresistibly drawn to the forbidden humans. She shattered the rules of the valley, exposing the lies hidden beneath. Now, responsibility for the consequences rests with her. In part two of The Wolf Chronicles, Kaala and the human girl she has befriended must find a way for the wolves and humans of the valley to live in harmony. If they succeed, Kaala will finally prove herself worthy of her pack. If they fail, every wolf and human in the valley will die.

Then Kaala learns that much more than the Wide Valley is at stake. Humans—and their relationship to the world around them—are changing. Kaala’s choices may affect not only her pack, but the survival of all wolfkind.
