Book Description

14 Jan 2002
Karen Fox is attacked on her way home from school and left in a coma by her attackers. While she lies in her hospital bed an extraordinary thing happens - her spirit journeys to another world. In this parallel world Karen inhabits the body of a fox and becomes the guide to a young man called Mowl who is caught up in a complex and dangerous mix of politics and religion. A world in which old feuds are long fought over and not easily settled. And Mowl is caught up in this intrigue far more extensively than he could possibly imagine. In this world tribal allegiances hold great power, and religion, politics and old beliefs are in conflict. It is not easy to be neutral. But time is against both Karen and Mowl and their desperate attempts to survive are fought out against the knowledge that animal guides have a very short time to exist. Will Karen the fox survive? Meanwhile Karen Fox's grandmother keeps a 24 hour vigil by her bed holding her hand and willing her to come back. But will she, can she, recover from her coma?

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping blend of Fantasy and Reality 8 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A book that grips you from page 1 and a story that flits between a girl dangerously ill in hospital watched over by her grandparents, and the same girl in a parallel universe somehow transformed into a fox with a limited time to save a kingdom. Great story, great descriptions, great characters. Recommended strongly for 11 to 16 year olds.

I picked up this book in my local library after someone had said it was very good, but i wasn't expecting it to be brilliant! It gripped me from start to finish, with the highly imaginative and unique storyline it was unputdownable! I love this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars it has the best ending 21 July 2003
By jonayla
Format:Paperback
i really enjoyed this book which shows how modern day people are sometimes fed up with the way the world works. its obvious karen preferred even being a fox than having to put up with tarts and social lunatics. also, it gives a window into the lives and thoughts of previous civilisations. A brilliant 2 in 1 book

4.0 out of 5 stars Woke Up in Medieval England as a Fox? 1 Dec 2012
By Georgia
Format:Paperback
Hunted by N. M. Browne is a book I discovered in my early teens. I would say the intended audience is younger readers and young adult, but I still enjoy it almost ten years on. The only thing is that the writing can seem a little young at times, but the fascinating and unusual story more than make up for it.

We follow two main characters, Karen and Mowl, as the narrative brings them together in a very original way. Though Karen is the true main character, the story is told from both their points of view, alternately switching between the two. I know sometimes that can be irritating, but it works in this book.

The story starts with Karen (in modern England) being chased by a group of girls, ultimately ending up with her in a coma. She wakes up in a different world ( a very ambiguous one at that) as a fox. She is still herself, but her memories are fractured and she can't remember anything distinctly. This means that she survives through her fox instincts, which can so strong that they completely drown out her own thoughts and feelings. Also, though this world has some magic realism, as a fox she cannot speak or understand human speech. As you can imagine, this makes the whole situation a lot worse and very difficult for her to deal with. I can't even begin to wonder what the mind would go through waking up in a different world and time (as this second world is set in the past, in what I guess is medieval England) as a fox and on top of all that, no longer being able to communicate.

Across her travels, she meets and is befriended by Mowl, a shepherd boy in his teens. Mowl becomes hunted by the Militia, as they believe his estranged father (Mowl being an orphan with no knowledge of his family) killed the king. As his son, Mowl is also blamed.
