Based on the cover art and the fact that it's a book for youth, I was prepared for a somewhat lame read that would fascinate a younger crowd, but leave me with my eyes rolling. However, I was pleasantly surprised and found the book to be quite thought provoking, the characters well-developed, and the plot lines well woven. And even though this book happens to be the fourth in a series and I haven't read any of the others, I didn't feel lost or like I was missing anything.

The 4th book of ‘Wolves of the Beyond’ series takes more dark and pessimistic turn than the previous ones. A large part of the disasters that befall the wolves are outside of their influence – due to anomalously cold weather the summer had never come, and there are snowstorms in summer months. The caribou herds had never come, and there is famine among wolves. The situation becomes even more dire as the cult of Dancers of Skaarsgard is spreading among hungry and desperate wolves who dance themse ...more

Okay, so part 4 started off pretty interesting...way better than part 3 did. But it really just bombed in my opinion. Throughout this series, Lasky has established a "religion" among the wolves, similar to but different than the owls. However, this book really seemed to go overboard into it: complete with a false religion, a false prophet, ghosts, etc. Plus it's becoming obvious that Faolan is more than just a wolf. What he is I don't know yet and I think that will probably be more clear in book ...more

Kathryn Lasky has made a wonderful 3rd installment of the Wolves of the Beyond series. After Faolan and Edme are acccepted into the Watch Wolves of the Ring, they embark on a journey to keep the clans together and save their race from evident starvation.

The wolves of the Beyond are getting skinnier and skinnier, and its not by choice. The last herds have left the Beyond as a snow storm hits, even though its mid summer. The Wolves of the Sacred Volcanos are dying off like their brethren in the fo

I really enjoyed this book and I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had followed the series but this was good as a stand alone as well. A winter has set in for the Wolves of Beyond which has not eased up and they are struggling to survive in a place that spring has never come. The different packs which once worked together are now becoming more and more separate in order to survive. Along with the lack of food and constant winter, there is a false prophet who is leading the wolves to believ ...more

These books man. No lie - every single one makes me cry. Where the last book has an underground railroad for abused women, this one features famine and starvation and a death-cult. It's hard fare to read, and I'm not going to hesitate to warn that some younger readers might not be emotionally read for it.

The book itself feels a little on the long side - it takes it's time, doesn't rush things. I also felt the villain at the end is both kind of obvious, and not well built up? It's a minor sour n

I've read and enjoyed the rest of the Wolves of the Beyond series, but this book explored a new aspect of the wolf culture. Some very strong Hindu elements are explored in this book, such as reincarnation and a caste-like system called the Great Chain. While I enjoyed the previous books because they expanded on the world of the Guardians of Ga'hoole, this book was highly disappointing in comparison to any of the other books by Kathryn Lasky because of the strange, Hindu-like religion she is star ...more

The book wolves of the beyond watch wolf is about two wolves in a blizzard. Faolan and Edmes mission is to restore order to the mcdunken clan and the blood watch. Along the way they find out that there is a misterios wolf that calls himself the profit. He is perswading wolves to help him ask there god for death. This is all because of a blizzard that is going into the summer.
My favorit part about the whole book was when Faolan snapped the canable wolf and broke his neck. He did this to protect t

Religious conflict in an animal fantasy book. I know Warriors did it and all... but this?

Faolan and his friends are travelling across the Beyond, which has now become an icy desert. All food seems to have left and wolves are desperate. The pack wolves seek help in a wolf called the Prophet, who does all kinds of apparently religious stuff and tells the wolves that they should dance, dance like crazy until the prey comes back. That's what they do, and eventually they either die from being tired,

Basically this book is about two main characters, Faolan and Edme. Faolan was abandoned as a pup and left to die due to a splayed paw he was born with. Faolan survived his sentence to death due to the loving care of a mother grizzly bear named Thunderheart who had lost both her cubs. She had raised Faolan well, teaching him the ways of the bears as well as all she knew about the ways of the wolves. Sadly she died due to having her neck broken in an avalanche. Faolan is now at the watch of the sa ...more

Okay, so the previous ones were rather, how do I put it, ok for kids? This is a rather dark book. My thoughts, it was great, it kinda reenacts the Great Depression a bit. The Beyond falls into a famine, and the real problem is not the lack of food, but it is the Skaars Dancers. The Skaars dancers will do a ritual that they believe that the Wolf God Skaarsguard, the god that helps souls into the Cave of Souls, would bring their bodies up to the cave of souls, only to find out that the dancers eit ...more

Quand j’étais gamine, j’adorais les histoires de loups... J’étais fascinée par la dangerosité qu’ils dégageaient malgré leur ressemblance avec le meilleur ami de l’homme : le chien. Quand mon fils a manifesté le même intérêt, la même fascination, je m’en suis amusée, et j’ai accepté de bon gré de lire l’une de ses sagas préférées : Le royaume des loups, de Kathryn Lasky. Il s’agit des pérégrinations d’un jeune loup né estropié, abandonné par sa mère puis élevé par une ourse, et de ses difficulté ...more

This is the fourth 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. I find it interesting that the characters from that series are starting to enter into this one even more.

She really likes these stories and is ex

Wolves of the Beyound:Frost Wolf is a science fiction seven hour novel. Bestselling author Kathryn Lasky's presents a book about a wolf who is looked at as the outsider. Faolan the wolf grows a connection with the bears which is unusual because wolves eat bears. There becomes war and Faolan is the one that can stop it, which he does to become a leader. The novel is great to someone who enjoys science fiction novels. I personally like it. It offered a new thought towards reading outside the box. ...more

Frost Wolf is my favorite book in the series.
Tama ~Lord of Wolves~
I think this wasn't fit for children as it is supposed to be, and is far too dark. Also, they go to the extremes on religion and prophets and all of those things, and the aspect of death is strong in this, which I do not like for a book for children. Also, Faolan, the main character is just too "special" and such, which really annoys me. Another thing is they basically describe a cult, and that really surprised and bothers me. This book is just too inappropriate for kids and is too dark.
Maggie
Guard wolves of the Beyond find the development of a wolf suicide cult and cannibalism during a famine to be shocking, but they are not disturbed by wolf swearing, the drinking of blood, and the amassing of bones to build mounds. Small prey animals are portrayed as nothing more than inferior meat, although their blood serves to revive dying wolves. Despite the mysterious setting, the plot quickly becomes uninteresting and the characters elicit little appeal in this 4th book of the series.

I loved it, there was dramatic influence throughout the story keeping me engrossed in the story.It could use a bit more mystery to it,the Prophet character was way to obvious,I already knew it was said character before I was even half way through.It was a very tragic ending with the wolf pup and how they carried him away from his parents at the Skaars circle... though I hope there will be more to do with the other owls from the tree in the future books...
Mellodi Parks
Loved this fourth book in the series and will be starting the next one soon. I loved learning more about the bigger story. This whole world that Lasky has created is quite vivid and you can see every scene as you read this and the guardians of Ga'hoole series as well. This one is about the Wolves and the other about the owls. In any case give this series a read yourself and see what you think too!

I am so done with this series. The only reason I will read the last one is because I already own it. The first book was amazing, but I have been falling asleep through the last three. Such a let down from the first. It's gotten so I only pay attention to the names Faolan, Edme, and Liam. I really don't care about anything else, and I could probably barely tell you what is going on.
Jacob Dorst
Summary-The wolfs of the beyond are experiencing a famine

Character Trait-Faolan-Thoughtful-You had a mother before Caila. Our mother-Morag. I am the malcadh who was cast out...

Most Important event-Faolan and his group found the wolf who had caused the Skaars dancing.

Recommendation-Iwould recommend this book to outdoor lovers, adventure seekers and animal lovers.
Casey Anderson
I liked this book, it was ok. But, it was kind of weird for it's age group. It was basically about a religious cult and suicide by starvation. It's a middle grade level book. I can't help but wonder about that. I mean, I did like the progressions, it was cool to see the owls again and watch Faolan grow, and Edme. But kinda heavy stuff for like 11 y/os.
