When humans start cutting down trees and digging holes in peaceful Dunlath Valley, the wolves know that something is wrong. They send a messenger to the only human who will listen -- Daine, a fourteen-year-old girl with the unpredictable power of wild magic. Daine and her closest companions heed the wolves' cry for help. But the challenge they are about to face in the valley is greater than they can possibly imagine...
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In this next installment to the Immortal series, we find that Daine has grown up a little more in age, wisdom and power. Actually, just when she thinks she has her magic under control, she learns that she has a bit more learning to do. Now she can actually change into the animals she speaks with or travel with them mentally, not just speak with them. This of course happens with many funny parts as she tries to figure it all out.
As the ever protective teacher, Numair is busy trying to help Daine figure out what is going on in Dunlath, as well as continue to teach her things. They do get separated during this time, which leads to Daine being a bit more independent and creative in how she handles the problems she faces.
A great point for is the subtle hints on being prejudiced towards people (or creatures) because of how the look or by what they do. I think it was great on how Ms. Pierce brings this up in regards to a creature you could easily fear rather than befriend.
Again, you will get to meet some more great creatures, and you can’t help but wonder what else you will get to learn within the next couple of books.
