Another exciting Clovermead adventure awaits in Sorrel: In the Shadow of the Bear, Book 3, narrated like a bright and courageous teenager by Kim McKean.
Our young 15-year-old royal warrior hero and bear shape-shifter, Clovermead Wickward, once known as Lady Melisande Cindertallow, leads her army into battle against the minions of the evil Lord Ursus once more. And when her arch nemesis, Lucifer Snuff, shows up, Clovermead must decide whether to fight him to the death or to lay down her arms and hope for a more peaceful and longer-lasting resolution.
A fun adventure fantasy for imaginative early teenagers with an adventurous spirit.
The fight against the evil Lord Ursus continues, and the fate of the battle lies in the hands of 15-year-old Clovermead Wickward. Chandlefort's army is in need of reinforcements, and Clovermead is charged by her mother, Lady Cindertallow, to seek allies among the nomadic Hordes of the Tansy Steppes. At the same time, Lord Ursus has dispatched Clovermead's old enemy Lucifer Snuff to contest her. A battle of diplomacy ensues, and it is only one of many struggles that Clovermead must face.
First, Clovermead must choose between her mission to the Hordes and the pleas of her best friend, Sorrel. All the while the survival of Chandlefort is pitted against Clovermead's promise to free Lord Ursus's enslaved bears. But the most painful choice of all awaits Clovermead in a face-to-face confrontation with Lucifer Snuff. In the end, Clovermead must decide between the logic of war and her heart's instinct for mercy, relying on her sacred gifts - the ability to shift into bear-form and to speak the bear-language - to have even the slightest chance at victory.
In an epic tale of honor, love, and redemption, David Randall follows Clovermead and Chandlefort with an adventure determining the fate of nations and human souls.
