In this fantasy adventure, Book 2 of The Shadow from the North trilogy,
Blair has escaped from the Old Man of the North’s ice crystal tower but is running for her freedom. To survive, Blair must outwit the band of Wild Men and their unstoppable leader, Manning, who have been sent to recapture her.
Blair knows that wherever she goes, the Old Man of the North has hidden spies. Of all the potential friends she meets along her way, which of them will Blair be able to trust? And how will she avoid the other dangers that meet her along the way, including the volcanic Wastelands, where one misstep can mean instant death?
Blair will have no help from her would-be rescuer, Florian, who has lost his memory in an accident at sea. But memory or no memory, Florian too is in great danger from the Old Man of the North, who sends his most trusted servant to kill him. Can Florian escape from a danger he does not even know about?
To make sure that Florian and Blair will never succeed, the Old Man of the North and the wicked witch Ssseeth make their most evil plan yet, a plan that, if it succeeds, will destroy all of Blair’s hopes and force her back into captivity in the Land of the North…forever.
On the Wolf’s Path is a story about courage, about finding the will to continue when the way is hard and long, but also about how help can come when we least expect it, and how friendship can lighten the darkest of places.
Blair and her wolf friends learn much, on this path they take together, and find to their surprise that the lessons we learn in life are not necessarily the ones we could have predicted, and that the greatest enemy we will ever face can come from inside ourselves.
Readers of all ages will enjoy the rich array of characters, humor, and adventures in On the Wolf’s Path as Blair travels through places that test her more than she ever could have imagined and attempts to do what no prisoner before her has ever accomplished: escape from the Land of the North.
