Will Kaala succeed in bringing the two together, or will she fail? The beginning was a little slow, but changes pace as events unfold. What I really liked about Hearst's writing is that you could really get the feel of the characters, being that they are wolves, with the way they greeted each other and how they interacted with other members.
I have my own "wolf" a siberian husky and can see for myself how the actions of the characters are real. Very well done! Jan 28, Karin Gastreich rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy. My rating: 3. Hearst tells this story from a wolf's point of view, which is just wonderful.

She postulates an active effort on the part of wolves to become 'friends' of humans, while weaving a larger web of conflicting interests, both human and wolfish, around this central struggle. The action centers on the adventures of Kaala, believed by some to be sent by the gods to lead the wolves in their effort to befriend humans. As a female wolf, Kaala brings a fresh flavor to the tried-and-true theme of a somewhat reluctant but evidently capable Chosen One.
Her story is told in a more-or-less parallel fashion to that of her closest human friend, TaLi, a young krianan who like her grandmother has the gift of understanding the animals. Hearst does an excellent job of capturing the mannerisms of real wolves in this novel. There were countless moments where the narrative inspired vivid images of wolf behavior and interactions. The hunting scenes were very exciting, and I would have liked to have seen more of them. I would have also liked more vivid attention given to the smells and sounds of the wolf world. But all in all, while reading the novel one has the sensation of running with the wolves, and this in itself makes it a worthwhile read.
Secrets of the Wolves was heading straight for a four star review right up until the last few chapters.

I dropped it down to three stars for a really very personal reason: I'm not fond of trilogies where each installment is set up to leave you hanging at the end. I like to see novels be able to stand on their own in terms of resolution, even if they are part of a larger story. Secrets , while a great read, doesn't really reach a denoument.
It simply cuts off in the middle of the action at page , leaving the reader waiting for book three. Jul 19, Shelly rated it really liked it Shelves: firstreads. Secrets of the Wolves is a great read for lovers of fantasy and paranormal stories. I read the first book in this series, but the author provides enough background in Book 2 without being cumbersome that you can jump on into the series. The author did a wonderful job portraying the wolves "talking" in the story, but you don't lose the fact that they are wolves.
Kaala is a wonderfully flawed character. She's not perfect, but it makes her more endearing. The action picks up in Book 2 and I can't Secrets of the Wolves is a great read for lovers of fantasy and paranormal stories. The action picks up in Book 2 and I can't wait to find out what happens next. Thanks for the Goodreads Giveaway!
Beware! Dangerous secrets lie between the pages of this book.
Jun 14, Tia rated it it was amazing. I just couldn't put this book down, it's almost five in the morning and I have to be up soon to see my child off to school but it couldn't be helped. I was pissed how it ended and really can't wait for the third book to make it's way to me. Gah, one of the best series I've read ever! Sep 30, Chelsea rated it liked it Shelves: 3-star. Mini Review: A solid second novel.

This one definitely improves on the first as far as the writing goes. The plot thickens and the characters have really grown since the beginning of the first book. Looking forward to seeing how this trilogy finishes out! Jul 18, Chelsea rated it it was amazing. I loved this book. I am glad I won it from a goodreads giveaway. I really enjoyed this book. Its a book that I will read time and again. I was drawn to this bookk from the very first page. I highly suggest this book. It was better then the first book, which I also enjoyed. I really can't wait to get the 3rd book!!!

This book should have been called "Everyone's a jerk: Wolf edition" Because honestly, so many of the characters in this book are jerks. So this story picks up after the first one left off. The greatwolves give the wolves another chance to live with the humans after the events of the first book, but then, it turns out that they don't WANT them to succeed and try to sabotage them.
The greatwolves seemed more of a kind of almost magical being in the first novel full of reverence and This book should have been called "Everyone's a jerk: Wolf edition" Because honestly, so many of the characters in this book are jerks. The greatwolves seemed more of a kind of almost magical being in the first novel full of reverence and awe while in this book they come across as smug bully jerks. Also the original pack that the main character is from basically gives up at the end and decides to side with the most evil of the greatwolves even though Kaala main wolf and her friends try to keep the promise of having the humans live with the wolves.

Not only are the greatwolves and the regular wolves jerks, there's also HUMAN jerks as well who want to not work with the wolves and kill all the prey "oregon trail" style. Another problem i had with the book is that there's two love triangles. I could have gone on for the rest of my life without this happening.
Kaala having two wolves wanting her despite being the most unliked wolf on the planet was odd enough, but now there was two humans wanting this unremarkable Tali girl who honestly She was bland and irritating. At least in the first book she was tolerable. This time with a love triangle it was just The long and short of it, this was a very ugly, mean spirited sequel. Honestly, this one was kind of a schlog to ge through.
The first book only took me 3 days. This one took me All in all, yeah i complained a lot, but everyone was still in character and i AM invested enough to finish the series so i will read the last book because i DO want to see a happy ending. So that being said, i guess it couldn't have been THAT bad. And i finished it. If i really didn't like it, i probably wouldn't have. So all in all, a 2. Here's hoping the last one is better.
Mar 23, Ian rated it it was amazing. After Kaala, a young female wolf of the Swift River pack, made a promise to the Greatwolves that the wolves of Swift River could live with the human Lan tribe for a year or every wolf in the Wide Valley would be killed. Milsindra one of the Greatwolves believed Kaala was attempting to destroy wolfkind so she attempts to make the humans and wolves go to war. There was also another threat.
DavRian, a young human male, was the next leader for the Rian human tribe does not find wolves to be human's friends and also tries to prove to the Lan tribe that wolves are enemies. I think this was a really good story with all the challenges and struggles the Swift River pack has to go through.
