Amazon Reviews

A fantasy adventure that features lots of action and intrigue that is geared to a YA audience.
There are moments in this tale that are especially well done... story telling at a level that I'd be interested to see what this author would do with an adult orientated fantasy work.
As a dedicated YA work... 5 Stars.
~ Ray Nicholson

The beginning of a great adventure!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the first book of the Trail of Bones series. It is an unpredictable adventure, with heartwrenching acts of love and friendship. The story ended before I was prepared to put my Kindle down, and now I will wait anxiously for the second book to be published. In the meantime, I think I'll read it again with my eleven-year-old son; I'm sure he'll love it as much as I do. Give it a read!

Enthralling story line that really pulls you in
…The characters were some that I will not easily forget because he explains their background in a way that makes the reader really connect and believe they are real. He creates a world that I long to see. I really grew to both love and hate different characters. I think that is a sign of a really great author when they can make us feel so much emotion towards a character.

What makes wolves so popular?

Have you ever seen one in real life? They're magnificent. Huge compared to most dogs, and they look at you with piercing yellow eyes. It's as if they look you at say "I know things, mysterious things, things you will never know or understand". And why not? Wolves are apex predators of the forest but also wrapped in contrasts and intrigue. All of this make these creatures more and more fascinating.
Wolves have powerful jaws, with razor sharp fangs, but they rarely hunt alone. The cunning hunters travel in packs and often use strategy, various tactics and even fear to gain the advantage over their prey instead of brute strength and speed. In many ways they exhibit behavior, both alone and in social settings that man at times has emulated or aspired to. The alpha male and alpha female are the dominant leaders in the pack and provide order to the group. Other wolves have specific roles within the pack, such as protector, scout, hunter, or even nurturer of the young.
Can you think of another animal that is so complex, and yet at the same time so iconic. It's no wonder that societies have included the wolf in their legends, myths, symbols, and cultures. A fierce hunter worthy of fear and respect, but also one to aspire to be like. While other top predators such as sharks or alligators seem like mindless killing machines, the wolf is anything but. Stealth, speed, power, cunning, loyalty to the pack, moments of play and leisure, leaders and followers - the wolf will in many ways will always remain a mysterious beast, perhaps one we may never truly understand, but still remarkable and intriguing as it has throughout time.
