With the Oracle Scythe passing away at the beginning of the story, we learn that a battle of sides will soon be erupting among the creatures. The foxes are known for being evil and untrustworthy, battling to take away whatever they can from the others and hopefully destroying as many creatures as they can while they’re at it.

The Wraith Mice are the lead characters on the side fighting for the good of what they feel is right. They stand strong in their religious beliefs and use the Bear King as t

The death of Oracle Scythe would be felt all across the land. Scythe was the one Oracle of the Darkwoods Foxes that was against warring with the other creatures in the surrounding area of the Darkwoods. With Scythe gone, the other Foxes had no more opposition to their plans of conquering all of the area, so they started their campaign to take control. Not knowing the resistance they would encounter along the way. Of all the creatures, the Wraith Mice with their magical abilities and their determ ...more

I received a free copy of this book for my honest review.

What a wonderfully vivid world created by author Marta Stahlfield. This is a world full of talking animals embroiled in a war for survival. Foxes, squirrels, mice, otters, and other animals are brought to life in this wonderful book that has a Narnia feel to it but is uniquely its own.

With the death of the fox Oracle Scythe, the other foxes that are under the influence of the Serpent Blight have decided it is time to take over the world o

This is a book unlike anything else I have ever read, and I have read a lot of books. I have never read a book where every character was an animal and at first I found it difficult to get into the story of the book. But as I read on I became fascinated by the entire world that Marta Stahlfeld has created. The creativity and imagination required to write a novel like this is extraordinary. Everything is so thought out, the personalities and traits of all the creatures, the names of the places, ev ...more

Well, since I'm the author, I guess I think its pretty good!

I love the main character, Zuryzel. She is a Wraith Mouse Princess, who is learning to be a leader. As a Wraith Mouse, Zuryzel can disappear into shadows or darkness, which helps her when she goes to spy on the Darkwoods Foxes, who are trying to conquer the world. Because she has an older brother, Zuryzel does not expect to become the overall leader of the Wraith Mice, but she does have responsibility for leading some of them, includin
