What I’m Reading: Wolf-Speaker (The Immortals Book 2) by Tamora Pierce

What this book is about: 

Daine returns in Book 2 at the behest of the wolf pack that once adopted her into its ranks in order to preserve the valley in which they live. As she digs deeper into the problem, she realizes it’s much larger than she, the humans, or animals can deal with separately.

But what about together?

What I liked: 

  • Characters: This book, as in the first, the characters are so well done. Even each animal has its completely unique character and feels vibrant, even if they only get a few sentences in the entire book.
  • Plot: The plot and problem just keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger as the book goes.
  • Mystical creatures: The creativity with these mystical creatures is amazing! Stormwings, Hurroks, Coldfangs, Ogres, and on and on. There are SO MANY!
  • Kitten the Dragon. It’s a dragon. Need I say more?
  • The wolf pack antics. You’ll have to read the cook to see what I mean.

What I didn’t like:

  • The opening: It was a little slow and I had a hard time getting started with the story. I really enjoyed the first book, so I had high expectations for this book being good, too, so I was able to push through, but it took a few chapters for me to feel invested.


Overall thoughts and opinions:

I really enjoyed this book, too. Not quite as much as I liked book 1, but I still enjoyed it quite a bit.

The storyline was good as it built up and the plot thickened and the pace started moving. It was an interesting story with good characters, interesting scenery, really consistent writing, and other good stuff.

I’ll definitely be looking to get Book 3 in the future.

I give Wolf Speaker 5 stars.
