Synopsis (from Goodreads)
Released: 4th of April 2019
A leopard dances under the moon.
A wolf prowls.
A red-beaked bird flies free.
Three girls born on the same day in wolf light are bound together to protect the world. They can dazzle or destroy. They have wind-song and fire-fury at their fingertips, but their enemies are everywhere.
From the bleak steppes to the tropical forests of Ghana and the stormy moors of Cornwall, the lands they love are plundered and poisoned. The girls must rally to perfect their skills and prove the strength of sister-magic.
Steeped in elemental myth, Wolf Light is a call to us all to hear the ancient power within us and conserve our heritage.
What I Have to Say
This is a beautiful coming of age story about three girls, magic and sacred roles of protection. Though it was little too character based for me, being more about the girls developing and growing into their roles and powers, I really enjoyed the premise of the book. I loved the fact that these were three different girls, from three very different cultures and places, with three different forms of power.
I really liked how much power was connected to nature. How the girls were protecting their particular environment from the people who don't respect it and want to use it for their own gain. I liked the way that each girl's personal bond with the land they were tasked to protect was so seeped in their culture and traditions.
The other thing that I found really good about this book was how distinct each girl's perspective was. How you could tell which girl was which before they were identified.
If you like very character driven coming of age stories full of magic, culture and respect for the environment.
My thanks go to Zephyr and Netgalley for providing me with this free copy for review.
