Promise of the Wolves by , Book Summary:

The first in The Wolf Chronicles trilogy, brilliantly weaving together original research, lovable characters and a dynamic, thoroughly engaging plot, Promise of the Wolves is a historical adventure story in the tradition of Clan of the Cave Bear and Watership Down. Set 14,000 years ago in what is now Southern Europe, Promise of the Wolves is told from the point of view of Kaala, a young wolf born of a forbidden, mixed-blood litter. An outcast after her mother is exiled, Kaala struggles to earn her place in her pack. But her world is turned upside down when she rescues a human girl from drowning. Kaala and her young packmates begin hunting and playing with humans—risking expulsion from their pack and banishment from their home in the Wide Valley. When war between humans and wolves threatens, Kaala learns that she is the last in a long line of wolves charged with keeping watch over humans in order to prevent them from losing touch with nature and thus destroying the world. But to do so she must solve the great paradox of wolfkind: though wolves must always be with humans, humans cannot abide the presence of wolves, and every time the two come together, war ensues. Kaala must choose between safety for herself, her friends, and their human companions and the survival of her pack—and perhaps all of wolf and humankind.

Spirit of the Wolves by Dorothy Hearst Book Summary:

“A vivid, enchanting tale of friendship, trust, and adventure, good Tolkien-esque ingredients” (Kirkus Reviews): The final installment of The Wolf Chronicles, told from the point of view of Kaala—a young wolf facing the most perilous decision in her life. Fourteen thousand years ago in southern Europe, young wolf Kaala discovers that she alone can unite wolves and humans, and must do so for the survival of both species. In Promise of the Wolves and Secrets of the Wolves, Kaala came to understand her role. Born of a forbidden, mixed blood litter, and abandoned by her mother, Kaala struggled to earn her place in the Swift River pack. When she saved the life of a human girl, she put her hard-won acceptance at risk, and responsibility for keeping peace between wolf and humankind fell to her. She failed. Now, in Spirit of the Wolves, Kaala has one last chance. She leaves her home in the Wide Valley with her young packmates, the human girl she loves, and an obnoxious raven. Together, they travel to the land beyond the valley to find her long-lost mother and a solution to the problem of the humans, only to discover that new challenges await them. Only by calling on all of her strength and on the bonds of love with her human, raven, and wolf companions can Kaala hope to succeed. In this compelling conclusion to The Wolf Chronicles, Kaala must decide how far she is willing to go for peace…when every step she takes leads wolfkind and humankind toward war. Atmospheric, exciting, and provocative, Spirit of the Wolves is “a crackling foray into a dangerous past…Dorothy Hearst’s keen interpretations of wolf behavior, senses, and sensibilities will enchant paranormal fans and animal lovers alike” (Publishers Weekly).

Secrets of the Wolves by Dorothy Hearst Book Summary:

Years of research into the world of wolves combines with mythical tale-telling to present a fantastical adventure set in a world filled with lore. 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. But they were rules destined to be broken. Now, in the second riveting installment of The Wolf Chronicles the stakes are higher than ever. Young Kaala of the Swift River pack shattered the rules of the valley and exposed the lies hidden beneath them. Now, responsibility for the consequences rests with her. Along with her young packmates and the humans they have befriended, she must find a way for the wolves and humans of the Wide Valley to live in harmony. If they succeed, Kaala will finally prove herself worthy of her pack. But if she fails, the Greatwolves who rule wolf-kind will kill every wolf and human in the valley. Told from the wolf ’s point-of-view and set 14,000 years ago in a time when the cultures of wolves and humans were not so different, Secrets of the Wolves transports us to a world where instincts are our only compass and cooperation between potential enemies could mean the difference between life and death.

Bringing Back the Wolves by Jude Isabella Book Summary:

An unintended experiment teaches real-life lessons about life’s intricate interconnections. In the 1800s, the American government decided to eliminate threats to livestock near Yellowstone National Park. By 1926, there were no gray wolves left in the park. This set off a cascade of devastating changes to virtually every part of the park’s ecosystem, and the once-thriving landscape was soon in distress. Then, in an effort to reverse course, gray wolves were reintroduced in 1995. In time, animal populations start to stabilize, waterways are restored and, miraculously, health returns to the park. This remarkable story of transformation is sure to captivate, and to inspire respect for nature’s surprisingly complex balancing act.

When the elite, ever-powerful Order of Babel coerces him to help them on a mission, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance. To hunt down the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin calls upon a band of unlikely experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian banished from his home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in arms if not blood. Together, they will join Séverin as he explores the dark, glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the course of history--but only if they can stay alive.

The Book of Were-Wolves by Sabine Baring-Gould Book Summary:

Sabine Baring-Gould was a Vicar in the Church of England in Devon, an archaeologist, folklorist, historian and a prolific author. Baring-Gould was also a bit eccentric. He reputedly taught classes with a pet bat on his shoulder. He is best known for writing the hymn 'Onward Christian Soldiers'. This book is one of the most cited references about werewolves. The Book of the Were-Wolf takes a rationalistic approach to the subject. The book starts off with a straightforward academic review of the literature of shape-shifting; however, starting with Chapter XI, the narrative takes a strange turn into sensationalistic 'true crime' case-studies of cannibals, grave desecrators, and blood fetishists, which have a tenuous connection with lycanthropy. This includes an extended treatment of the case of Giles de Rais, the notorious associate of Joan of Arc, who was convicted and executed for necrosadistic crimes.

Nightsong by Peter Fogo Book Summary:

A fatal wolf attack in the woods north of Duluth, Minnesota threatens to envelope the area in a deadly confrontation between a survivalist group and an undermanned sheriffs department. Nightsong tells the parallel tales of a young black Beta and acting Sheriff Ed Nelson as both struggle to maintain control of the events that surround them while coming to grips with more elemental, instinctive forces. For the young wolf, survival inevitably depends upon his willingness to abandon his subordinate status and challenge the Alpha for pack supremacy, a course of action that will result in exile and death should he fail but will confer mating rites with his lifelong hunting companion if he prevails. For Ed Nelson, the strange circumstances of the death in the woods jeopardizes his reputation and presents him with seemingly insoluble problems as he counts down the few remaining months until his retirement. And in the middle of these perplexing riddles, he suddenly finds himself the object of the romantic advances of his secretary, a distractingly attractive redhead over twenty years his junior who had never before indicated that their relationship was anything but platonic. Nightsong bridges the barriers between beast and man as both cope with the challenges and responsibilities of authority and the irresistible drive towards sexual attachment that transcends the physical. And in the quest to set existence right, the paths of wolf and man intersect, binding them to a destiny neither can fully comprehend.

The Trappers Promise by Bronwyn Trotter Book Summary:

Bronwyn Trotter's "The Trappers Promise" is a hard hitting Novel set in the wilds of the Rockies: where only the toughest of women can surive. ‘Born on a mountain in the Rockies where wolves are hunted for their valuable skins, Sarah Cole has to contend with trapping wolves and nineteen trappers. Four of whom have made a promise to her father to look out for her if he should be killed. When her father dies during a card game, she loses her winter home Mountain View Lodge and is thrust into the care of the trappers. Finding that men are now looking at her more as a woman than a trapper, Sarah finds battling vicious wolves is far easier than dealing with them and a wealthy rancher Major Hardy trying to stop her from becoming friendly with his son Frank. Major Hardy’s idea of a wife for Frank is Millicent Crawley, daughter of the general store owner. Sarah will do what she has to, even if it means using the wolves to get her son, stolen from her by his grandfather, back to her.’

The Hunger of the Wolf by Stephen Marche Book Summary:

Hunters found his body naked in the snow. So begins this breakout book from Stephen Marche, whose last work of fiction was described by the New York Times Book Review as “maybe the most exciting mash-up of literary genres since David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas.” The body in the snow is that of Ben Wylie, the heir to America’s second-wealthiest business dynasty, and it is found in a remote patch of northern Canada. Far away, in post-crash New York, Jamie Cabot, the son of the Wylie family’s housekeepers, must figure out how and why Ben died. He knows the answer lies in the tortured history of the Wylie family, who over three generations built up their massive holdings into several billion dollars’ worth of real estate, oil, and information systems despite a terrible family secret they must keep from the world. The threads of the Wylie men’s destinies, both financial and supernatural, lead twistingly but inevitably to the naked body in the snow and a final, chilling revelation. The Hunger of the Wolf is a novel about what it means to be a man in the world of money. It is a story of fathers and sons, about secrets that are kept within families, and about the cost of the tension between the public face and the private soul. Spanning from the mills of Depression-era Pittsburgh to the Swinging London of the 1960s, from desolate Alberta to the factories of present-day China, here is a bold and breathtakingly ambitious work of fiction that uses the story of a single family to capture the way we live now: an epic, genre-busting tale of money, morality, and the American Dream.

The Lost Books of the Bible by William Hone Book Summary:

After the writings of the New Testament were selected from the numerous Gospels and Epistles then in existence, what became of the books that were rejected by the compilers? Apocryphal texts are non-canonical books, similar to texts of biblical origin written just after Jesus’ crucifixion. Although they are not part of the Scripture, these verses are authentic to their time. These pages contain, among others, stories of Jesus as a child and the other miracles that Mary made. Lovers of biblical literature will find here obscure, but unquestionable, origin texts authentic to the time. Contained here are several remarkable references to the lives of the Saints, the birth of the Virgin, her marriage with Joseph, the nativity of Jesus and the miracles of his infancy, his laboring with Joseph in the carpentry trade, and the actions of his followers. Mesmerizing and artfully written, enjoy these stories that were excluded from Scripture. The Lost Books of the Bible helps expand our knowledge of the early Christians and helps us better appreciate the texts that were chosen.

Talking Wolves by A. Biletzki Book Summary:

Talking Wolves advances an analysis of Hobbes which takes language seriously (as seriously as Hobbes took it). It presents a reading of Hobbes's view of society at large, and political society in particular, through a comprehensive discussion based on, and intimately linked to, his philosophy of language. This philosophy, in turn, is seen in a new light as being a pragmatic theory of language in use, language in action.
