SRT – A Wolf Story

I love reading, don’t you? I always find it especially fun, when there is more than just writing occurring, …some of God hidden in the words.

A Wolf StoryA Novel of Savage Conflict and Desperate Faith by James Byron Huggins

If you like Narnia! This a book for you! It’s fast paced, fast action between the rise and fall of good and evil! You’ll be at the edge of your seat, and you won’t be able to put it down!

I thought this was a the first time I’ve read a book by Huggins, but realizing I’ve read one of his earlier books called the Reckoning, which I loved! Both are worth your time and if you’re ready for the energy these books bring, you’ll be thrilled!

A Wolf Story is an allegory , similar to the style of Chronicles of Narnia. I love the fact that it is so packed with adventure and faith. I think it is a crowd please for both the seekers and the adventurers. It talks about honour, courage, and faith. It encourages young people (Aramus in this story), to do the right thing, even if it hurts. I love that through the use of animals and the growth of the characters that happen in this novel. It shows that even though people are so different, we still can find common ground through our faith. It holds so much power and action in the book, you truly will be at the edge of your seat as you turn each page! I think I finished the book in about a day and a half because it was so exhilarating!

It is magic! It is adventurous!  It is the ultimate fight between good and evil!  It’s main stage is in the forest and deals with how the animals of “the lightmaker” stay their course through the challenges of their life!  Children and adults will enjoy this book. I would love to see this book in movie form! It will be be a classic on our book self for sure! Dare I say it will be on the list for a few of my nephews this Christmas! Mr. C is buckling down to tackle this book too!

  3. :o) Yeah, sorry… some other Amy won :o)

  4. This sounds like something we would enjoy as a homeschool family read-aloud. Thanks for the review!

  5. I think I will look into this book. Now that Jim is done with school he has time to read for pleasure (not textbooks). This sounds like something he and Ian would enjoy. Thanks for the review.
