 ‘Cry of the Norwolf’ by Ian Young is an interesting adventure series that I think will have wide appeal among middle grade readers. Arkyn, a ten year old boy has his world transformed when he stumbles across an injured norwolf pup. A predator that’s the stuff of fear and folklore, Arkyn’s path will change forever if he chooses to help the injured animal instead of killing it. A new fantasy series that is set in a more primitive world than our own, I found ‘Cry of the Norwolf’ really easy to follow and I thought that the story flowed well. The plotline moves quickly which I think will keep readers entertained and eager to know what comes next in the book and in later books in the series. The black and white illustrations at the start of each chapter are clean and detailed. As a personal preference I would have considered having more chapters to include more of these header illustrations instead of the asterisk dividers. However, the more flowing structure of the book does add to its fast pace and encourages the reader to keep going and see what happens next. ‘Cry of the Norwolf’ is a really entertaining read that I think would have broad appeal, especially to readers of Michelle Paver’s Wolf Brother series.

A unique and breathtakingly beautiful tale.

A unique and breathtakingly beautiful tale. Arkyn's heartwarming relationship with the young norwolf based on his ability to 'talk his thoughts' to the creature frequently gave me goosebumps and on more than occasion moved me to tears... As an adult, I appreciate the nod to mindfulness that lies at the heart of Arkyn's new-found skill and for the young reader these poignant moments will provide a comforting and contrasting stillness to an otherwise fast-paced and thrilling adventure story. Having finished the book, I feel that I have had to say goodbye to a very dear friend whom I just can't wait to see again in the next one.
