Say goodbye to owls and hello to wolves. Kathyrn Lasky, the author of the Guardians of Ga’Hoole series, delivers a new spin-off series called the Wolves of the Beyond.


The Weakest Link

It’s well known that wolf packs cannot have a weakness. That’s why the Obea takes newborn pups with any sort of deformity—known as malcadh’s—to a place of certain death. But if somehow those pups survive and return to their pack, they are accepted as gnaw wolves.


Splayed Paw

When Morag gives birth to her pups, one is unlike the rest; he has a splayed paw. It’s a small flaw, but one that is taken seriously by the pack. The Obea takes him to a rising river where he is sure to drown. And he would have, if the grizzly bear called Thunderheart hadn’t saved him.


Raised by a Grizzly Bear

Having just lost her last-born cub, the grizzly accepts the wolf pup as her own and names him Faolan. She teaches him survival skills like hunting and fishing and walking on his hind legs. But she knows nothing about the way of wolves. How do you raise a wolf when their size and instincts are so much different from a bear’s? And worst of all, what will she do with Faolan come winter when it’s time for her to hibernate? After all, bears hibernate…wolves don’t.


The Bottom Line

Compared to the wonderful Guardians of Ga’Hoole series, Wolves of the Beyond doesn’t have that much personality. It’s all about learning and hunting which gets boring after a few chapters. There are a few captivating parts, but not enough to sustain a story. Let us know how you felt about Wolves of the Beyond: Lone Wolf in our comments section below!

I don't think age really matters. Of course, as long as it's not like a 40-80 year old dating a 20 year old, an 11 and 15 year old. Or some other outrageous situation like that.  But, my current boyfriend is a couple years older, so I guess what I say doesn't really count.

Samsung all the way. Android for me has everything that Apple has to offer, and these ideas were implemented into Android before Apple. In my opinion for Apple, you're buying the brand. With Samsung, you're buying Android technology and innovation.
