Read this book years and years and years ago, and finally swung back around to a reread Forgot how much I liked it, as well as how frustrating it could be lol THE TIES THAT BINDRezsia Was A City Girl, Unequipped To Face The Dangers Of The Wilderness Although She Was A Wolfwalker, Her Telepathic Link With The Wolves Was Too New To Give Her The Strength And Experience She Needed To Survive In The Forest Then The Elders Asked Her To Investigate A Series Of Strange Deaths, And What Started Out As A Straightforward Task Became A Desperate Struggle Between A Hidden Evil And The Fledgling Bond Between One Wolf Cub And A WomanThe Odd, Older Wolfwalker, Coale, Could Teach Rezsia To Join In The Packsong And Run With The Wolves The Scouts Assigned To Escort Her Could Instruct Her In Forest Survival Skills But When Even The Packsong Held Secrets, There Was No One She Dared Trust Fully If She Hoped To Survive, She Would Ultimately Have To Search Her Soul, Sift Through The Memories Of The Wolves, And Bet Her Life On An Inner Strength She Had Never Tested A reread Still haunting and suspenseful and relevant all these years later Love all the adventure scenes I m not sure I breathe through most of them The richness of the writing brings every detail to life. I liked it, but it has proved to be not exactly a good entry point into the series There s a lot a left out which I assume I would have known if I had read the first novel s in the series but so had work out over the course of the story which made for a slow, at times confusing read.Still an interesting take on a SF Fantasy theme and compared to todays writings it s a delight to have a heroine who s not some mysteriously chosen know it all, but a young girl, well young woman actually, but her voice certainly makes her feel like a girl, that has to learn her skills and doesn t just get magically granted them.A hooray for hard working heroines Hadn t read this in a decade plus, so decided to re read And was pleasantly surprised that the book still stood the test of time, and there was a reason why I decided to keep it from years ago.The fourth in a series by Tara Harper, this book is steeped in fantasy than sci fi and as a result, I liked it better than the rest of the series About the granddaughter of the famous wolfwalker Dion, this follows Rezsia through a growing of age tale, one where she learns from others, travels dangerous waters, and decides who she wants to be as a heroine.I enjoyed the tales of the world and why it had become so dangerous, and the band of merry folks Rezs adopts as she goes on her missionin particular Elgon, Coale and Ukiah The book is a nice blend of Rezsia figuring things out on her own, and learning from others thereby growing as a person The sense of danger is palpable as well though the dangers are many, Harper does a nice job of blending all of that together to indicate man vs nature a nature somewhat caused by our own foibles.The romance is a light underpinning of the overall story but is there just my type of romantic storyline, though I would love to read a sequel Four stars only because the ending felt somewhat abrupt after so much build up, but this is true fantasy at it s finest Lovely read. This is a VERY good book All of Tara K Harper s books are very good. human animal pairing, on a psychological connection between a young girl and her wolf in attempt to help her world this is a great series. line is amazing and the details are so wonderful you feel like your actually there They were such great stories when I was a young girl that I reread them as an adult
