Now he's made it back to his clan and as a gnaw wolf, the lowest ranking pack member. And the hardships are just beginning. Another gnaw wolf, Heep, is jealous of Faolan and sets him up for failure. As if these humiliations are not enough, Faolon is framed for the murder of a wolf pup....

Quotes & Awards

  • “Tightly plotted, lyrical…Lasky blends her powerful skill in establishing a setting with Faolan’s lilting poetry and song, revealing his tender heart and the forest’s own beauty…Readers will be delighted.”

    School Library Journal

  • “A story about believing in yourself and achieving what everyone says is impossible, this is a novel for fantasy beginners who enjoy new worlds, new words, and prophesies.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “The ‘gaddergnaw,’ as well as a murder accusation, keeps the plot trucking.”

    " This was an amazing book so colorful and had so many wonderful moments Kathryn Lasky is one of my favorite authors and this was another ringer of a book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 2/15/2011

    " Too many made up words. It drove me nuts to read them all. Stevie seemed to like it. Not enough action for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 2/10/2011

    " I really enjoyed this one...better even than part 1, Lone Wolf. Kathryn Lasky has an incredible gift of writing, that draws you in with amazing detail. You see life through Faolan's eyes, and expreience the joys and hardships of pack life with him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanya | 2/7/2011

    " My kids and I loved this one so much that we looked for Lone Wolf on audio too - which is was the first of this series.

    It led to many great questions about feeling different and about how "pack mentality" can be and how one should embrace one's own gifts with true humility. "

    " I loved this book! I know it is a young adult read, but I just can't get enough! I will again be awaiting the next in the series!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tori | 1/20/2011

    " I havent read this book through yet but it does have a lot of action and is a bit sad at times "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isabella | 11/22/2010

    " This book has an AUSOME ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thunderfury | 11/20/2010

    " I loved it! Except, it was not what I expected in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 11/9/2010

    " Not as gripping as the first one in the series, but still compelling. Faolan has found his wolf clan and has been accepted as a "gnaw wolf", basically the lowly scapegoat in the pack. A villain is established in this one that will likely show up in further books in the series. Still good. "
