This is, to be honest, like no book I have ever read and it is also the most Furry-esque published novel I have found. Unlike most of the anthropromorphic animal genre, it is dark and gritty and obviously intended for an adult audience. It is also a most compelling and engrossing read, with a similar feel to two of my favourite things - ElfQuest and Princess Mononoke.

This is another great book by Paul Kidd. The characters are very fleshed out and memorable, and evolve significantly as the story progresses. If you're familiar with his work then this should feel familiar, although it is a considerably sadder story than his usual fare.

Yep, I read it. And I enjoyed it. Not a great book by any means; a fan-fiction-y story - though with a slightly better than fan-fiction level of writing - and WAY too many footnotes (come on Paul, that’s just lazy. Terry Pratchet only gets away with that because HIS footnotes are always funny), it was also pretty, and tragic, and fantastical, and pretty, and romantic, and sweet, and pretty. Did I mention that it was pretty? Terrie Smith’s illustrations were pretty too.
Read this in middle school, I reread it every now and again. There's a love story, a war story, some lovable characters... idk, it's foxes with butterfly wings with a class and anti-imperialist narratives, so. ...more
