Faolan, a wolf once doomed to die, struggles to fufill his destiny as the leader of the wolves of Beyond.
No one ever saw Faolan as a leader. Banished as a pup, he survived and returned as a gnaw wolf-the lowest member of the wolf pack. But Faolan wasn't meant to be a gnaw wolf. It's not just his strange, splayed paw, or his uncanny connection with the bears. There's somet...more

My opinion- could be better. It was good, but not good enough, I believe that the earthquake was a bit silly, as an earthquake the size to destroy a volcano, it would make the volcano erupt, a tsunami would happen, and well, survival in an earthquake to destroy a few giant volcanoes would be almost one to god knows what. But I'll pass it off as this is Fantasy. But anyways, it should have been a short part in the 6th one, Star Wolf, in my opinion, why? It's really just talking about the long tre...more

I decided to read this book because I had read the first 4 in the series, and when I read more than the first two books of a series, I like to continue until the end.

I really like Gwynneth, the rogue smith owl, because of her sensibility and intelligence. She's also very practical, and I love the way she helps the wolves when need be, and doesn't give up.

I liked how the book was an easy read, and how it was short, so I could read in one sitting.

The thing I didn't like about...more

This is the fifth book in the Wolves of the Beyond series by Kathryn Lasky.

Our oldest picked up Lone Wolf, the first book of the series, at our local library and thought she'd check it out. I'm sure she selected it because she really likes wolves. She has become enthralled with the series and has started to read the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series, too.

She really likes these stories and is excited to read more of the books in the series. It's a quick read, and while the drama is a bit metaphysica...more

Faolan is a wolf who was born with a splayed paw. This causes him to be outcast, meant to die. But he didn't he survived. He came back as a gnaw wolf, the wolf who usually gets picked on by the others. He then grew out of that and became a watch wolf. This book takes place after the huge famine that spread across the beyond. Just after things were starting to go back to normal, huge earthquakes cause the Sacred Ring of Volcanoes...more
IT BLEW UP MY MIND! Faolan having past lives, becoming the new Fengo,

I was disappointed in this book, as it continued to delve into more Hindu ideas. Instead of focusing on the importance of castes, as in Frost Wolf, this book talked heavily about reincarnation. I read this book in hope the story might improve, but it seems that Lasky has decided to heavily base this world on Hindu beliefs.
Another wolf of the beyond series. Brianas favorite series. It wasn't one of my favorite books that she has written. Too long and not too much happened , it seemed like she wrote this one so that she could write another book for her long series. It is brianas favorite series so I read it.

I disliked this book.There were too many deaths.Soren in particular it said that Gwynneth saw Soren's scroom or spirit and the Sark she had a big part in Faolan's life.Kathryn Lasky is a good author but she really messed up when she wrote that Soren was dead.

"Spirit Wolf" is about a wolf named Faolan that has a splayed paw. Faolan is connected with bears and also with his sisters, Mhairie and Darlie. They go on adventures. I recommend this book to anyone that likes animals.
If I never get a hold of the 6th book, it will be too soon. This was better than the last three, but never will compare to the first book. I just couldn't stand to read another word.

amazing book i love the base of the story
Glah!! Faolan was supposed to become the Fengo!!! Leaving the Beyond is just totally whoa. And I'm not so sure that it's a good kind of whoa...
Hard to judge this as I've not read any others in the series. Would be a mild page-turner for some youngsters, somewhat predictable.
Sonia Loo
I really liked it. The part where Foalan meets the other gyre souls is really cool and imaginative. I still thinks it pretty sad.
King Hoole
Pure awesome. Only reason no 5 is cause it isn't that exciting. It's more of an intro into even more awesome book 6

Disaster epic. Survival. Will they create a new life for themselves. I hope the final book holds the answers.
I think that so far this is the best book in the series and I can't wait for the next book!
Molly Epperson
I really like it. If you read the fourth booked and liked it you well like this book.
