Vampires might be old news with the wolf packs taking over! Three new books out this year handle wolves in very different ways, but are all worthwhile reads.
The first one, Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, is a sequel to Shiver. The wolves in Mercy Falls seem to be wild but are hiding a secret from outsiders. Grace has a special interest in the wolves that live in the woods behind her house, especially since she is dating Sam, who was cured of his infection that forced him into wolf form. But Grace is having problems of her own that might be related to the bite she received as a child.
The next one is called Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce. The wolves in this book are not datable! The werewolves, called Fenris, prey on pretty young girls but Scarlett & Rosie March are all too aware of the dangers. Scarlett bears scars from the attack by a Fenris that killed their grandmother. But the sisters need to find out why the Fenris seem to be grouping in the area again before they lose another loved one to their hunger.
And the last one, Wolves, Boys and Other Things That Might Kill Me by Kristen Chandler, deals with real wolves. When KJ Carson is assigned to write a column for her school newspaper about the wolves in nearby Yellowstone National Park, she’s more interested in impressing Virgil Whitman, the new kid in school and the photographer assigned as her partner, than in investigative journalism. But before long, KJ has a face-to-face encounter with a wolf that changes her attitude. With her new-found passion for protecting these controversial animals, KJ inadvertently ignites the fuse of the anti-wolf sentiment in the community.
What type of wolf books do you like to read: the real ones or werewolves? Do you have a favorite book featuring wolves?
