Blog Tour: Shadow of the Wolf by S.M. Pace

Young Adult Fantasy
Date Published: 11/28/12

Toby has always felt like an outcast in his village, but he thought winning a game at the Summer Fair was the answer to making friends. The local boys disagreed and literally threw Toby to the wolves. Stranded in enemy territory with a broken leg, he’s offered two options by the resident werewolves; death or permanent exile from his race.

Although Toby longs to return to his family, he chooses to live. But the werewolf children torment him just like the boys and girls back home. When he fights back and discovers he can wield magic, a crime in his old kingdom, he realizes he’s safer with the werewolves than he ever was amongst his own kind. He even finds happiness and acceptance, until his real sister contacts him with her own forbidden magic. 

Fearing for her safety, Toby must decide where his loyalties lie; with the family he grew up with or the werewolves who took him in when his own people discarded him?

My Review:
So I occasionally read a bit out of my comfort zone and this was one of those books for me. I really wasn't sure what to expect and I am happy to say I was pleasantly surprised. 

While this seems bit younger than the typical Young Adult books I read, it still had great depth to the characters and plot. The lead character particularly was very wonderful to read about and I found myself engrossed in his world. It felt very much like rooting for the underdog and hoping like heck he pulled it out. 

I think this is definitely something fresh and has a deeper theme behind it. I really enjoyed the action and the mystery all rolled into one.
