Technically, it was a good book, but I didn't like it. It had everything to make it enjoyable, a good vocabulary, decent structure and a pretty good plot. But for those who read The Sight and Fire Bringer it was a serious let down. His other wolf-based novel was provacative and amazing, creating a hidden world that was rich with culture and depth. It was brilliant but this one seemed lacking, or even less than lacking. It was missing something that I can't seem to pin down. I actually haven't re ...more

Recommends it for: Anyone who loves wolves, feminine heroes, fantasy, mystery, and nature.
VERY NEARLY BETTER THAN THE FIRST!! AND I DIDN'T EVEN THINK THAT WAS POSSIBLE!!! David Clemet-Davies totally nailed it with his breath-taking sequel to 'The Sight', his amazing previous masterpiece. Clemet-Davies weaves words the way Monet could weild a paintbrush. His writing was, as always, riviving and extrodinary.
'Fell' is the story of the she-wolf Larka's brother Fell, now a loner. Fell, like his sister, weilds the Sight, an ancient and terrifying power that has seperated him from other wol

   Fell is the continuation of the story – and destinies – begun in The Sight, and reads very similarly. The prose is lovely, full of nature images and details, plus multiple nods from past to future in mythology, fairy tales, allusions to scientific discoveries, and out-right prophecy not only about the immediate future, but also about the world to come (and easily recognizable as our own as it stands). The allusions to future scientific discoveries were always a treat to stumble across, as the ...more

Recommends it for: Anybody who loves wolves and has read the first book
I LOVE this book because in the first book, The Sight, Fell was my favorite character! When I found out there was a second book about Fell, I did a happy dance! XD

Fell (the book, not the character) is about a black wolf (called Fell, of course) who in the first book, was Larka's, the main character, brother. It turns out that he had the power of the sight too, and he eventually in his travels finds a human girl who for some mysterious reason, also as the power of the sight-- The first human who

Okay, let's try to write a review for this! Fell is a sequel to The Sight, picking up five years later with an older Fell, along with a new prophecy, new adventures, and harking back to some familiar faces. Ultimately, I'm docking a star vs. its predecessor because despite being a slightly shorter book, it felt much longer and really dragged its heels, to the extent that I was looking forward to finishing it and just moving on to something else already.

It's really, really hard to pick out exactl

Fell written by David Clement Davies, is a fiction book. I chose to read this book because it is the second book to The Sight. Also because this book is about wolves and my favorite animal is the wolf. Fell is a lone black wolf who possesses the sight. The sight is a power born too few animals and it is both a curse and a gift. It gives Fell the ability to touch minds, control others, see through another’s eyes, see the past, present, and future in any body of water, and understand any animal. B ...more

When I first saw that David Clement-Davies had written a sequel to The Sight I was ecstatic. I loved The Sight, as well as Fire Bringer. This book feels completely different from both of them.

Even though this is technically a sequel, it really doesn't have much to do with the first book, other than having some of the same characters. In fact you don't even have to have read The Sight at all. This book copies the same cover style as the first, with the main wolf character's face taking up the wh

Have you ever felt like an outcast? Pushed away by your peers and friends because of something you could do or know? Fell, a black-furred wolf from Transylvania is an outcast from the rest of his pack and is isolated from his sister, Larka, due to the fact that both his sister and him share the gift of seeing the future and other peoples thoughts. This causes him to become a "kerl", which means lone wolf.
In the book, Fell by David Clement-Davies it also tells the stor

I've been waiting for this book ever since it came out, and now that I've read it, it was worth the wait!
I have to compare this one to The Return of the King. The scope is tremendous, the pace is exhilarating, and the depth is astounding. If The Sight made me cry in a few spots, I could hardly stop crying while reading Fell. Mr. Clement-Davies hits all the right notes and weaves his story with impressive skill. The bond between Fell and Alina is deep and profound, and the message of love, courag

Fell was as amazing and captivating as the sight. Although I prefer the Sight to Fell, I was still in awe with David Clement-Davies writing. This book, much like the Sight, forces the reader to question everything they understand about life. Whether it be the moral views of life and death or what waits for us beyond death, this author makes you question it over and over. When the book is done, you have no more answers then you started with yet somehow you feel satisfied with the questions asked. ...more

I thought this book was pretty good. It challenged me like The Sight did, but I thought at times the author got rambly and drifted off the story line. I also think he was talking WAY too much about religion and death. At those times, it was a pretty dark book. But aside from that, it was an excellent read. Very exciting, and a nice ending.

I didn’t read the first book in this series so I may have missed some details. This book was a grand adventure where the power of love and perseverance wins out over darkness- I can’t wait for my kids to be old enough to read this!

I must say that David Clement Davies did it again. I'm not going to post a lengthy review for this book must be taken in carefully to devour the magic that lies hidden within the pages of Fell. This book had me up for hours on end turning page after page. I was utterly appalled at one point of the book and I wanted to toss it across the room and stop reading. But I kept on reading because it was so intriguing. I simply love the relationship that formed between Alina, and fell, and Catalin. These ...more

I was thrilled to see that there was a sequel to THE SIGHT! I devoured this book in three days and was in tears at the end. Clement-Davies has a real talent for writing about the animal world in a philosophical, multi-layered way. And I loved the thematic dynamic between dark fatalism and the odd sense of mystique surrounding the Sight, a theme that he also pulled of so well in the first book.

Granted, Clement-Davies writes about Fell's struggles and story more compellingly than Alina's, but I e

this book is a great follow up to 'The Sight' the book i thought was my favorite book until i read 'Fell' five years after what happened at the bridge (trying my hardest not to give anything from the sight away to people that haven't read it) and after Fell became a Kerl, a lone wolf, he has a vision from Larka, telling him to find the Guardian. So he sets off looking for the Guardian. Alina is living a hard life, having many weird dreams, and being called a changeling, a child of goblins. But a ...more

This book is basically a continuation of "The Sight". The young black wolf in the sight is now old and so is the boy he keeps seeing. This time the book tells the story from the wolf's point of view instead of the boy. The Black wolf's name is the same as the title. Fell and his family of wolves journey the world with the help of the boy who is now a man, to try and save their forest from a foreseen darkness. I gave this book three out of five stars because it was an interesting read, but it car ...more

Absolutely loved it! Very touching story. Nice to see that Clement-Davies wrote about a powerful female lead character. Not your typical tough guy concourers the world. Alina is portrayed as a strong female with honorable qualities and a strong determination. About time the girl saves the day. I enjoyed the interaction between animal and human. So often the wild thing is tamed, but I was glad to see that when all was said and done, no one had to change who who they were. The more I read, the mor ...more

Review originally published on Flayrah.

Fell is the sequel to David Clement-Davies earlier book, The Sight. The Sight was an excellent book following a wolf family, living in Middle Ages Transylvania, as they struggled through a prophecy and learned to deal with a legendary power and the crazed aspirations of an ex-pack-member.

Fell claims to deal with the mixed destinies of a wolf, Fell, and a human child, Alina. In reality, Fell is relegated to a minor character in his own story, only getting ab

This book is an interesting contrast to the first book in the duology. In some ways, it feels more like a children's book than the previous one. It is a lot more hopeful and positive, even though the author can't help but be liberal with the deaths again. The plot also felt much more linear and simple.

I think in some ways this is due to the author approaching writing about people quite differently. He seems to be much more aware of sexist stereotypes and even advocates against them (although cl

His sister Larka was lead to the death by the Sight(a gift bestowed upon certain wolves to see things others cant) and as such Fell who also has the Sight but hates and rejects it. However, after looking into a pool his sister shows him an image of a girl whom he must find and protect.

This continuation of The Sight takes place many years later after the events of the first book. This story follows Fell, now an old wolf, on his journey to help a human girl, Alina.

Unlike The Sight, there are a lot of human-world perspectives and plot lines in this book. This book also felt really cinematic and dramatic in comparison. There were so many well-written scenes and locations and everything in this book I had no trouble picturing IMAX quality scenes.

While The Sight left us with twists and turns, Fell leaves us with a feeling of nothing that happened mattered. I read this book soon as it came out with The Sight having riveted me during a burn out from most animal books during a dry spell. It did not hold up. The inclusion of humans really brought things down, but so did Fell as a whole. His destiny and fate fell on its face in comparison to his sister's and it all just trickled down from that point.

If you enjoy The Sight I suggest not readi
