I happened to come across J. Kaye's Book Blog and they have a giveaway going on there. Dorothy Hearst's book is up, being reviewed by J. Kaye. And the author is graciously giving away an ARC ( Advanced Readers Copy)of her new book "Promise of the Wolves". Personally, this is a new author and book for me but the synopsis sounds really good:
Synopsis: 'WHAT IS THE PROMISE OF THE WOLF?
Never consort with humans. Never kill a human unprovoked. Never allow a mixed-blood wolf to live.
At least that’s what the wolves of the Wide Valley believe. Until a young wolf dares to break the rules—and forever alters the relationship between wolves and the humans who share their world.
Born of a forbidden mixed-blood litter and an outcast after her mother is banished, Kaala is determined to earn a place in the Swift River pack. But her world is turned upside down when she saves a human girl from drowning. Risking expulsion from their pack and banishment from the Wide Valley, Kaala and her young packmates begin to hunt with the humans and thus discover the long-hidden bond between the two clans. But when war between wolves and humans threatens, Kaala learns the lies behind the wolf’s promise. Lies that force her to choose between safety for herself and her friends and the survival of her pack—and perhaps of all wolf- and humankind.
Set 14,000 years ago, Promise of the Wolves takes you to a land where time is counted in phases of the moon, distance is measured in wolflengths, and direction by the scent of the nearest trail. Join Kaala and her pack in a spellbinding adventure set in a fantastical world filled with lore.'
I think after reading that, you might agree that this book sounds very promising.
