A debut novel by British author Kris Humphrey A Whisper of Wolves is the first book in the thrilling Guardians of the Wild Series. Made for 9+ and early teens this is a fantastic and beautiful masterpiece.
The way in which Humphrey has created a whole new world- a fantasy land filled with magic and mystery is really spectacular. I think this is a lovely book that people of all ages can read as it is a brilliant tale of finding your inner self and saving the world from the bad guys plus it has magic, who doesn’t love magic! I imagine it might be a little bit scary for the younger readers but not to scary.
The characters were all very well written, the plot line was very fast paced and made the book that much more enjoyable to read.
This special book reminds me of the reasons that I fell in love with reading and no doubt will be the reason that so many children fall in love with reading in the future.
