In a nutshell: Scottish island set animal story with a hint of myth and magic

Kerr Thomson follows up his well-received debut The Sound of Whales with a new story set on the same remote Scottish island. It’s home to Innis who loves its wild emptiness and particularly ‘the Barrens’, home to thousands of birds. The story weaves a 21st century threat to the island’s tranquillity – planning permission for a massive wind farm – with much older myths: could there be wolves again on Nin, or could a centuries old legend offer a chance of a different future? It makes for thrilling reading, island life vividly described as is Innis’s friendship with his neighbour Kat and rivalry with new arrival Lachlan. ~ Andrea Reece

This is a story to recommend to fans of Gill Lewis’s novels particularly Sky Dancer.

As the wolves rise from the darkness of history, and long-buried secrets resurface, Innis's adventure truly begins ...
