I agree with DerpBacon - too many owls! :roll:
I also thought it was really unrealistic... like, bone necklaces? Great Chain? Clans with strange Scottish surnames? Where did this come from?
Also I didn't really like Faolan - he was too much of a Wolfy Sue.

The books are good if you like fantasy animals books like the redwall series or warrior cats but it's pretty far from the realistic view that in the same sense educates people about wolves and their behavior. Have any of you read the actual bambi book by Felix Salten? It's pretty close to it's accuracy on wild deer which is amazing and much is different from the Disney movie.

I remembered when I started reading the series. I really liked it, still do, and I wasn't too upset with the fantasy-ness because I was a fan of Guardians of Ga'Hoole and I am very aware that the Guardians of Ga'Hoole was a fantasy story and that both series were by the same author, one thing that bothered me and made me stop reading the series, was that I read that in some of the later books Faolan starts seeing ghosts, which I thought was too much already -_-

I read this book back between the ages of 10 and 11. It was this very book series that sparked my love for wolves. I remember drawing the wolves I saw on the book covers. Those were good times!

Yes, this book sparked my love of wolves too! And I once attempted to draw Faolan as he appeared on the cover on one of the books, I believe it was the first book, although I could be wrong.

Although now that I think about it, Faolan was kind of a Wolfy Sue, which I think was more of a plot device in order to make it seem like he was gonna be the next great Fengo, which was this wolf of legend that saved all the Wolves of the Beyond from a great blizzard like thousands of years ago, at least, I began to theorize that Faolan was gonna be the next great Fengo, with the way that they were portraying him, but I'd have to reread the series, even finish it to fully remember and understand how things go.

Idk, I tried to read it when I was little, I just couldn't get into it. Don't get me wrong, it probably was a really good book, I just can't usually read books in an animal's POV, nor can I write one.

When I first picked up the book, I remember being confused at the word Obea, until i realized that the author had another dozen made up words for the wolves, bears and owls. I loved that plot element: the fact that they come from a history of different languages. I feel that animals in real life cannot understand each other the way movies often depict them to. The language difference in species really intrigued me.
