i felt like i was watching a TED talk given by animals and oddly enough given that criticism the only page i bookmarked to uote in this review was probably the most didactic part of all ”Here’s what you should have been told and told again from the day you were born of all Canista’s cubs Fox has suffered the most from the cruelty of the furless Dog longs than anything to fit in He thrived in the Graylands digging a comfortable place for himself as a servant to the furless He was fed and cared for but there were terms to his acceptance He would live as a prisoner tethered at the end of a rope Soon he was so well fed on the spoils of then furless that he forgot all memory of his time in the wild and he lacked the desire to free himself He lived in a pack with the furless as his leader His own will withered like a plant without water“Wolf was an ancient and noble creature the largest and fiercest cub of Canista He would not be controlled by the furless He ran to the Snowlands the frozen realms beyond their reach where he howled to his ancestors to save him But in his eagerness to be free he found himself in a land so brutal that he needed the help of his enemies to stay alive for a lone wolf cannot feed his cubs In time fights emerged between the wolves battles for the best of the kill for the warmest place to sleep The strongest claimed that they were kings and that weaker wolves were their slaves A system of control emerged brutal and no less binding than the furless’s imprisonment of Dog In the end despite his size and power Wolf cowered before the spirits and bowed to the rule of the pack Confused and superstitious he forgot how to survive alone”Siffrin went on “Only Fox had the courage to live without rules without the hierarchies of others to hunt and survive in freedom and peace For while Wolf and Dog are so brutalized that they will gladly kill their own kind Fox avoids conflict at all cost She does not yearn to control others only to live by her own wits She does not scare or torture her prey like a cat she does not gain pleasure from the chase For that she is distrusted by her brutish cousins the other sons and daughters of Canista For her independence she is tormented by the furless The Graylands are haunted by snatchers who round up foxes and take them away Even in the Wildlands the furless hunt us using dogs and poison to kill us They shoot us with metal sticks and gas our dens They give us no peace”that passage was interesting to me than any of the magical aspects visions prophecies or action seuences except for the one i already admitted was “fun” i dunno i will probably eventually read the other two books in the trilogy since i already bought them because of coverlove but i don’t feel a lot of urgency about getting around to them this one ends in a weird place neither cliffhanger nor revelation a thing happens the journey continues but it doesn’t feel like there has been any closure nor any attempt to stoke the can't miss book two fever that most series try to provoke but perhaps your children or students love it which is greatin other pretty visual details the cover beneath the dust jacket has a little embossed foxand there are illustrations at the start of every chapter here are some of thema very pretty book but i need to hook mecome to my blog
