I’m not going to lie, I bought this entirely on impulse when I was in the National Library of Scotland. I had never heard of the author or the book before but I was on a total book lust high and it had a stunning cover, the word ‘wolf’ in the title and mentioned beasts of fable and legend. It was fated to be mine.
Now all I have to do is actually read it instead of just admiring it looking pretty on my shelf!
Helen has won a place at a prestigious summer music school in remote north-western Scotland. But as she practises for a concert on Midsummer’s Eve, her friends, the fabled beasts, prepare for battle – in the very forest where the young musicians are staying. When Yann the centaur arrives and warns Helen of impending danger, she is forced to cast her musical ambitions aside. Helen finds herself catapulted into a perilous quest, allied with fantastical creatures against a powerful enemy, the Faery Queen. She finds the mythical island of Tir nan Og, breaks the law and administers first aid to old friends and new… but will it be enough to help her friends and save herself?
