Promise of the Wolves is a creative, thought-provoking novel about wolf life, human–animal relationships and the balance of nature. Set 14,000 years ago, it creates a world in which wolves can speak with humans and other animals, time is counted in phases of the moon, distance is measured in wolflengths and honour to the pack is paramount.
