In a conclusion to the epic that began with Through Wolf's Eyes, young Firekeeper struggles against the unscrupulous sorceress Melina Shield, who has used forbidden sorcery to induce the ruler of New Kelvin to marry her. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave
Raised by smart, language-using wolves, far from humans, then brought back to the court of Hawk Haven, young Firekeeper had to learn to cope with human society. Fortunately, for one raised amidst intelligent pack animals, the intrigues of humans are neither complex nor wholly unfamiliar.

Now Melina Shield, the beautiful, unscrupulous, and thoroughly discredited sorceress whose power-hungry intrigues have already made so much trouble for Firekeeper, has once more used her power to cloud men's minds, and has induced the ruler of New Kelvin to marry her. This is bad news on a lot of fronts.

It's particularly bad news for Firekeeper. Melina hasn't abandoned her schemes to gain power through the use of forbidden ancient sorcery. And the leaders of the royal beasts who watch over this world have given Firekeeper--and her intelligent wolf companion Blind Seer--the responsibility for stopping her.

The rousing conclusion to the epic of animal magic and human ambition begun in Through Wolf's Eyes--starring a brilliant young heroine struggling to prevail over both

Nicely ties up the first arc, and gives it a fairly epic-style ending. While there are some unanswered questions, it's a good place to stop in the series and gives readers enough of a sense of completion.
