Publisher's Summary

From the author of the best-selling Guardians of Ga'Hoole series comes the story of the wolves of Ga'Hoole.

A wolf mother has given birth, but the warm bundle snuffling next to her brings only anguish. The pup, otherwise healthy, has a twisted leg, and the mother knows what the harsh code of the pack demands. Her pup will be taken from her and abandoned on a desolate hill. The pack cannot have weakness - the wolf mother knows that her pup is condemned to die.

But alone in the wilderness, the pup, Seeker, does not perish. This his story - a story of survival, of courage, and of love triumphant. This is Seeker's story, the wolf pup who rose up to change forevever the Wolves of the Beyond.

TWO PAWS UP!

If you enjoyed Lasky's "Guardians Of Ga'Hoole" series, you will thoroughly enjoy this new endeavor by the same author. Lasky applies her tried and tested formula that worked so well with owls, but this time around, focuses it upon wolves. The end result is a very intriguing story that stays true to the author's unique writing style, while still feeling new and fresh at the same time. Although there is a surprising lack of character dialog within the entire length of the story, the narrative keeps the pace of the plot going nicely. While it's not necessary to have read any, if not all, of the "Guardians Of Ga'Hoole" series of books before starting this series, it might make the overall story and experience a bit more enjoyable if this unspoken prerequisite is met beforehand. Either way however, it is a marvelous read, one that shouldn't be passed up by any fans of wolves, or any fans of animal fantasy stories in general. Erik Davies does a magnificent job as narrator, as he has a very pleasant voice to listen to in my opinion.

Excellent story

What made the experience of listening to Lone Wolf the most enjoyable?

Beautiful description of different characters and exploration of their feelings. This audiobook make you immerse in the live of the characters... You really want to continue listening until the end. I enjoy this book as much as my kids (7-11 y/o).

Any additional comments?

Worth to listen - I already recommended this book to friends and at school.

wonderful story, wasn't crazy about the narrator.

Lasky does it again with this amazing series. The story is gripping and every bit as good as the ga'hoole series. I do have to say that I am not crazy about the narrator. His "voice" that he uses for every female character and young Faolin are all identical. Like a guy pretending to talk like a girl as a joke. I know its hard for men to do female character voices, but I have heard much better. His diction and pronunciation are lacking, more like a dad reading his kid a bedtime story than a professional narrator. That being said, the story is so compelling, it is easy to look over the sub-par narrating, and you do not notice it after a while. I do not say this to be negative against Erik Davies, but just to submit my opinion in an honest review.

Awesome Book!

I really liked this book, but it was very sad. I recommend this book to people who like animal stories. I am about to purchase the second book.

My son liked it

Any additional comments?

We were spending hours commuting in the car so I thought we would listen to this whole series since my son loves animals. He liked it, and it wasn't bad. There were just a lot of strange words in it that I thought were a bit much for a children's book. And the narrator's voice was a bit droning (is that proper English?). So, I made an executive decision and decided not to get the second book in the series.

children an adult story

I Love that it teaches you a lot of details about animals such as wolves, owls, bears, and so on . I don't like how they say animals worship weird things like American Indians use to and they also bring up witches. this I feel like is inappropriate for children good make-believe stories for adults. I enjoy all the owl and wolf stories this writer has written about.

excellent book

This is a excellent well written book which follows the sad tale of a wolf pup which has been cast out of its pack and left to die, excellent read and writer, but might leave you reaching for a tissue.
