Hmmm… location photos probably won’t come for a while because that would require an actual road trip and I have to, you know, work and stuff.

My review is split in to five sections: Writing, Plot, Worldbuilding, Characters, and X-Factor. Each section comprises of either half or one star, except X-Factor which can utilise two whole stars.

Brave young ladies are marching off into my island’s primeval forests to hold the line against those who would wish to deprive future generations of their magnificence – a magnificence that has been present in our wilderness since well before the tread of humankind. They stand before towering, monstrous machines; they shackle themselves to Kingdom Plantae giants and they gird themselves for long stays in flimsy constructions in the canopy. Why one has even become the iconic Angel of the Weld! ...more

Revelations abound, ice Queens start to melt and new love starts to blossom. Vulpi is one heck of a ride!

Vulpi is the stunning second installment in Gordon's brilliant Thyla series set in picturesque Tasmania and yet again she has squarely hit her mark. I absolutely adored the first in the series "Thyla" and its main protagonist Tessa, so it was with some trepidation that I set out on this whole new adventure with a whole new lead in Cat. I really didn't expect Cat to worm her way in

Vulpi by Kate Gordon is the second book in the Thyla series. Vulpi picks up a couple of weeks after the events at the end of Thyla.

The story is told from Cat's point of view in this book. Tessa has returned to her pack of Thylas but she is still attending Cascade Falls College. Her friendship with Harriet, a Sarco, is now strained. Tessa encourages Cat to start a journal and one of the first thing she writes down is an explanation of what makes a Thyla: they have blood

Firstly, I declare my bias: Kate Gordon and I were at school together and I consider her a friend.
And I don't read a great deal of YA fiction or fantasy fiction so I'm not the best qualified to comment. But here goes.

Although it is only a year later, Vulpi strikes me as a much more mature novel than its prequel and I can see strong development in Kate as a writer. I had felt that the battle scenes in Thyla were a bit under-written- it almost felt as though she was a bit afraid

Vulpi. Awesome title! It's the second novel of the Thyla series, and man, did I love the first novel! How awesome was it? So of course, I expected a lot from it! And well, it was a really good read! The novel was great, and I love how even though Tessa isn't a main character anymore, she's still important to the story and important to the character development of Cat. (Love Tessa!!) The development of Cat's character (the main character in this novel) was really well done. I got to see hoe she r ...more

Kinda tore through this one, for me. But I loved it. If you enjoyed Thyla you'll enjoy Vulpi. The main character switches which at first annoyed me but it was a continuation of the story, not just a different view of the same thing. I really enjoyed the different character development of this, the new main character as well as development for the previous books main character. And I just love the creatures and the world. I'm super upset she hasn't seemed to write another one yet, and nothing on ...more

I really loved this book. I had not read Thyla, but that was okay, I understood enough to enjoy the novel. One of the characteristics of good writing is that you don't really notice the prose because you're so transported by the story: and that was very much the case for me with this novel. Lots of twists and turns, lovely Tasmania references. Can't wait til my daughter is old enough to enjoy it too.

Kate Gordon manages the tricky task of making a sequel even more exciting than the first very well in this follow-up to Thyla. Told from a different point of view than the first book, Vulpi continues the tale of Tessa, the Thylas and the Sarcos, but brings new characters, new twists and a new level of intensity to the series. Highly recommended!

The dramatic sequel to 'Thyla' Vulpi is the story of young cat who discovers things about herself and her history as the war between Thylas and Sarcos threatens to ignite. A supernatural, action filled adventure for anybody into supernatural books.

Hmm, another slow to get into book.
An OK book in an OK series. My life is not any better from reading this series at all.
It was an interesting idea of Thylas, Sacros and Vulpis but I really think that plot could have had a lot more depth.

Not one that I will be adding to my personal library.

Again, I don't remember when I read this, but I remember quite liking it.

Honestly I preferred Thyla way better than Vulpi. It was quite boring and had no plot until the end
Liked this a bit more than Thyla, as I felt it made more sense.

Was not as good as the first book
Another book directed to teenage girls and I'm sure it will be thoroughly enjoyed by it's market audience.

I really enjoyed reading this Tasmanian Authors book, as it's the second book in the series after Thayla. Both books were based in the Hobart area, and they did mention other parts of Tasmania.
