The kind of fantasy adventure I have always loved: evocative and imaginative and destined to be a classic - Garth Nix

A stunning adventure story - masterly storytelling from Kiran Millwood Hargrave - Cressida Cowell

Fierce, lyrical and compulsively readable; an earth-shattering fantasy - Piers Torday

The Wolf Queen herself is majestically ambiguous, sometimes magnetic and inspiring, sometimes chilling. And every adventure is better with giant sea wolves - Frances Hardinge

Bold, breathtaking and unbelievably beautiful fantasy - A.F. Steadman, author of the Skandar series

A truly epic fantasy adventure, full of wild magic, fierce bravery and the incredible power of love. I was utterly swept away by this masterpiece! - Catherine Doyle

Lyrical and engrossing from the first line - Lizzie Huxley-Jones

This is a lyrical masterwork - an epic adventure woven from myth and magic, friendship and darkness. I loved it! - Struan Murray

The award-winning Kiran Millwood Hargrave is a class act embarking on an engrossing fantasy trilogy with In the Shadow of the Wolf Queen. Unlikely heroine Ysolda is made homeless by an earthquake and the arrival of the Wolf Queen's feared Ryders. Catapulted into a quest to rescue her imprisoned healer sister, she has to connive and plot to get near the answer to why everything is dying. Nuanced and varied female characters power this gripping, evocative plot about power-lust and the natural world in disarray. - The Observer

This tale of adventure and magic is as brave as it is exciting - The Independent

The start of a new series, this is a beautifully and gently written story that is part adventure, part fairytale, part mystery, and with underlying tones of magic and mythology. With a main character as fierce and brave as any you'd find in a Katherine Rundell novel, themes of environmental consciousness, and elements of Tolkien, it's an immersive and immensely enjoyable read - Booktrust

A fantastical adventure, built on the foundations of the real world, and brimming with the kind of alluring, elemental magic that stretches your imagination into the furthest and most fertile regions of the mind...a dazzling opener to what promises to be a modern classic - The Lancashire Evening Post

Rich in Millwood Hargrave's exquisite, atmospheric style. The world building is rich, as the reader is carried through ship-carcass built castles and eerily silent, boggy woods. In one chapter you feel you are hiking through the forest alongside Ysolda, in another rotting, salty sea air wafts from the page...a richly imagined new fantasy series about the power of nature and strength of sisterly love - LoveReading4Kids

Kiran is an exceptional writer whose world-building is always vivid and immersive...the book is one to savour and immerse yourself in...a must-read - K & O Bonkers About Books blog
