Europa, 14.000 anni fa. La falce di luna che marchia il petto grigio di Kaala segna il destino della piccola lupa: rivelando la sua estraneità al Branco del Fiume Rapido, condanna la madre all'esilio e lei e i suoi fratelli alla morte. Ma Kaala non vuole morire. In lei arde uno spirito indomito che le permette di superare il disprezzo degli altri lupi, di cacciare anche quando le forze sembrano abbandonarla e di opporsi alle difficoltà con fiera determinazione. Poi, un giorno, Kaala salva una bambina dall'impetuosa corrente del Fiume Rapido e, sebbene le leggi dei lupi vietino di entrare in contatto con gli umani, tra lei e la bambina s'instaura subito un legame forte, autentico, che porta due esseri completamente diversi a scoprire un'intesa straordinaria. Così, quando lo scontro tra gli umani e i lupi appare ormai inevitabile, per Kaala arriva il momento della scelta: rientrare nel branco e difenderlo oppure schierarsi al fianco di colei che le ha dimostrato comprensione e affetto. Una decisione che potrebbe segnare il futuro della vita sulla Terra'

okay, i am going to pretend i am queen of the universe and i am going to set some ground rules, the first of which is that if you are an author, and you publish a book knowing full well it is going to be the first part in the series, you MUST make that EXPLICIT somewhere on the cover. because i can' Leggi tutto
Una historia que no pensé fuera a gustarme tanto. Lo raro de este libro son sus personajes, ya que no son humanos sino una camada de lobos recién nacidos y el como se van integrando a la manada. Suenan un poco loco pero es muy entretenido, te saca risas, un poco de pesar y te hace pasar algunos cora Leggi tutto
Reviewed by Harmony for TeensReadToo.com Kaala was born with Outsiders blood. She watched her siblings die and her mother exiled by the leaderwolf, all because of the blood and the rules broken by it. Yet Kaala's life is spared when the Greatwolves step in for unknown reasons. Though her life was spa Leggi tutto
3.5 stars This is one of the oldest books on my TBR, so I therefore feel very accomplished for having finally picked it up and read it :) It didn't totally knock me out, but I also feel like there's only so much that can be done when it comes to keeping animal characters realistic. The interactions b Leggi tutto
I love Dorothy Hearst's work. She's a talented writer who combines meticulous research with a story so compelling that you never notice how much you’re learning along the way. In Promise of the Wolves, she gives you a vision of the world 14,000 years ago from the point of view of Kaala Smallteeth, a Leggi tutto
I have to admit, I didn't finish this book. At first, I thought it would be unfair to the author to write a review for a book I'd only partially read, but as I've thought about it, I realized that in the first four chapters of the book, I had formed an opinion that was strong enough to make me decid Leggi tutto
This is a stone age novel with a difference – it’s told from an animal perspective. Specifically, wolves as they undergo the process of domestication into dogs – Humanity’s so called ‘best friend’. It’s a charming tale that reminds me of Farthing Wood or Watership Down , but whilst I’m sure children Leggi tutto
I don't have much to say about this book other than the fact that I was happy it was over. Truthfully, had I not been listening to it as an audiobook, I wouldn't have finished it. I just felt absolutely no connection to the characters and really didn't care what happened to any of them. I found the
I really enjoyed this YA book. This first book of the "Wolf Chronicles" trilogy is about the relationship about prehistoric humans and wolves, is told from the wolves POV, and seems to lay the foundation of how the first domesticated dogs came to be. I liked the main character, a young wolf Kaala. Sh Leggi tutto
The product description notes: "Brilliantly weaving together original research, lovable characters and a dynamic, thoroughly engaging plot, The Wolf Chronicles is an adventure story in the tradition of Clan of the Cave Bear and Watership Down." And this is why I'm a little disappointed. Hearst is a g Leggi tutto
