Editorial Reviews

Irresistible music opens this story and marks transitions as it frequently changes direction. In this second installment of Pierce's Immortal Quartet series, 14-year-old Daine is called upon to help the same wolf pack that helped her avenge her own mother's killing. Full Cast Audio does a commendable job with this huge cast, which includes animals, humans, and immortals. The range of voices is as broad as the characters, with the main narrator continually adopting a style that matches the pace of the action. In addition to Daine, the most fascinating character is Kitten, a baby dragon. Young listeners will be enchanted.

Publisher's Summary

When the wolves of Long Lake call, Daine must use her powerful ability to communicate with animals to save them from an ecological disaster.

One of my favorites

I have read this book (and the other three books in the series) about once a year since it came out; one of my absolute favorite series, The Immortals. Full Cast Audio has made it even better since now I can enjoy it at work! The narration can be a little stilted but still enjoyable. I think they did an amazing job with the casting as well. I highly recommend any Full Cast Audio books, as well as any of Tamora Pierce's other books.

Finally, we get number 2

Having purchased Wild Magic, the first book in Pierce's Daine trilogy, I have been waiting a long time for this one. (They say that Emperor Mage, number 3, should be available around November.)

This is one of those books that I liked even better as an audiobook - Full Cast Audio did their usual excellent job.

Great for young listeners

This is the second book in the second series. All of these series are tied together so it is best to start withe the Lioness series. This is a fun story especially for anyone who ever wondered what animals could do if faced with mining or deforestation.

another magically done reading

Tamora Pierce and the Full cast family make gold once again in this reading of the second book in the series "The Immortals" quartet it's like I'm a child again and listening to old fashioned radio shows that my gramps used to play for me when I visited him before he passed.

Well -voiced and enjoyable. A great story for all.

Having read this story many times over the years, I am finding a new enjoyment with the audible version. The actors represent their parts wonderfully. If you struggle to get your tweenager to read, this series might do the trick. With all of the animals involved, it might even be worth starting with this one instead of the first book in the series. Don't just let them listen though! Get them to read along as it might help them to become readers for enjoyment, not because they have to. (So requests a long time teacher!) And who knows, with all of the great books that Tamora has written, they might become lovers of books! One can only hope!

Alright but not great

What did you like best about Wolf Speaker? What did you like least?

What I like the most.The idea of this story was beautiful, the main characters abilities are actually undermined in the beginning making you think this was going to be one of those underdog fights to the top books but, as your understanding of the characters past and power develops you realize this isn't true at all. The idea of the other characters are also good.What I like the least.The characters are too see through, instead of letting the story unfold or delivering it to you through detail it is told to you as if explaining how a person turns a page; kind of dryly. You don't get to guess anything, and even though the plot itself had potential it was lost in the rudimentary delivery.

Would you be willing to try another book from Tamora Pierce? Why or why not?

No, like I said the plots have good potential but how he writes his stories are kind of a let down. instead of nose twitching he moved seeking its source, it smelled bad he didn't like it. Some probably can overlook this but I think this is a more of a in between finding your next great book read just to keep you busy.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I didnt think the narration was bad it had an old feel to it.

Do you think Wolf Speaker needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Sure like I said the plot it good its just the delivery that wasn't as great.

Any additional comments?

I'm not saying don't read this. I am saying that if your looking for a great series to get lost into and have your heart cords plucked and your wonder sparked this isn't that kind of book. It's fine for an average read though.
