Fell by David Clement-Davies

From Goodreads: In this dark, thrilling fairy tale, it is the wolf who saves the girl. Fell, the dark-furred twin brother of Larka, the heroine of The Sight, must face life without his sister or the rest of his loving pack. He’s a lone wolf now, a “kerl,” an outcast from his kind who shares his sister’s fatal gift for seeing the future and the thoughts of others. This gift leads him to befriend a young girl, also an outcast from her people. They have a shared destiny: to free the land from a tyrannical ruler who would enslave man and animal alike.

I hate to be a "cover-judger" but I really like this cover, the wolf, the castle, and the snowy mountains make for a great look. More importantly is the actual story, which also caught my attention. Before I continue I should say that I really like stories with animals and magic. I really liked the fact that the book alternated between Fell and Alina's perspectives. They each have their own story and "battles" to fight. In the end however, they both seek to defeat the evil ruler. I liked the pacing of the book and the main characters, but I wished some of the other characters had been more developed like Tarlar and Catalin. I would have wanted to know what was on their minds and learn more about them. Overall it was an enjoyable read and I recommend it for those who like wolves (and reading about them).

I give this book 4 owls!

  1. You are not alone. I totally judge books by their covers! Can't help it. I'm attracted to sleek designs that evoke drama!
