FIRST WOLF was written by Carole Anne Carr. Published in 2009, it is available for purchase on http://www.amazon.com/
Toland was 12 years old when his father hurled the wolf's head at Eorl Hutred, a sign of no surrender for his people, and all things changed. As Toland's father sets out to tell the King of Eorl's wrong doings, Toland is given the daunting task of escorting his family through treacherous surroundings to safety. On his quest, Toland finds his strength and the path his life is meant to take. Set in 8th century Northumbria, First Wolf tells of difficult and dangerous times.
This is a wonderful fiction piece that has been deeply woven with truth and life lessons. A fantastical story of a child's coming of age, First Wolf is beautifully executed. Not only for the middle grade YA lovers but for all lovers of the genre, First Wolf is a must read. I am giving this wonderful book a 4-spider rating and guaranteeing all, an exciting journey with Toland on his travels.CK Webb
