Product Description

Product Description

For the past six months, something has been happening to teens in Santa Feliz. Seventeen-year-old Josh Saunders has seen the news reports, but he is still unprepared when it happens to him. One minute he’s arguing with his mother’s boyfriend and the next, he’s looming over the man, blood dripping from his claws—he has transformed into a mountain lion.

When Josh switches back to his human body, he knows his life has changed forever. He has become a Wildling. Pursued by both government authorities and criminal factions, Wildlings must hide their newfound abilities to avoid being locked up for study and experimentation. When an accidental betrayal reveals Josh’s secret, his carefully constructed cover is ripped apart, forcing his friends to intervene. They must grudgingly put their trust in other Wildlings—and, most challenging, each other— if they ever hope to save him.

5.0 out of 5 stars unputdownable! 25 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's always a pleasure to receive a new Charles de Lint, and this is no exception. One of his young adult tales, it deals with Josh, an adolescent who lives for his band and 'boarding'. His home life is poor, although he loves his mother, the men in her life often cause him grief. The latest boyfriend, though, gets a shock when he attacks him, for Josh changes into a mountain lion. Josh is one of a new breed of children known as 'wildlings' and as he embarks on this terrifying new life he mst find a way to control his power whilst evading the sinister research corporation who wants to analyse him, the FBI and the Elders who have brought this power into the world. As usual, Charles de Lint spins a great story, bringing the best out of his adolescent characters and not shirking the issues of sex, gang culture, race and politics. I really enjoyed it and have started reading all his other works in order! Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the next in the series! 21 Feb 2013
By BethP
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This tale is aimed at young adults, but is worth reading as an older one too! If you've never read any of de Lint's books, this is an interesting and enjoyable one, but do look out for his earlier works. I love his style, he often blends "Old World" magic and legend with "New World" ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wildlings 28 Nov 2012
By Elaine
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. Charles de Lint writes of the extraordinary so that,like Stephen King,it seems perfectly acceptable.
SPOILERS--In this book,a small town suddenly find their young people are finding they can release their inner animal.
Of course,then you get the inevitable bad guys(the men in black) who seem to want them.
Is it for security(a huge gorilla running around,for instance,would cause a security prob)or is it someone with an ulterior motive.
Three high school kids,friends since forever,find themselves mixed up in it when one of the changes and discovers his wildling nature.I hope he writes morelike this and turns it into a series.
Great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful YA novel 15 Jun 2012
By E. Gately - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am not going to lie. I didn't buy this book for my 8 year old. I bought it for me. I have read every single book by Charles de Lint that I have been able to get my hands on. He is a fantastic writer who carries me away with his stories. This book is no exception. Moving back and forth between the perspectives of different characters, I feel the angst of decisions made and how they play out, not perfectly, but in a way where things can move forward. I feel as if the characters are living in real life. Which is crazy because *spoiler* the characters in the book can transform from being human to animal and back again. But that is the gift of de Lint, you see yourself in his stories and you see the magic of the world through the magic of his stories. You win on both counts.

As I was reading the book I was paying attention to see if I would let my 8 year old daughter read it. The answer is no. There are some implied scenes that she is not ready for. But the good news is that when she is ready...I have a cabinet full of Charles de Lint books waiting for her to dive in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for young people who identify. 11 Oct 2012
By Miajob - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Amazon pops up Charles de Lint for me because he is my favorite author.
I love Charles de Lint and identify with his urban legends and other stories.. this story is geared to those younger people who identify with humans being able to take mystical animal forms... I have read everything Mr. De Lind writes from the first time I read " The Riddle of the Wren" and I will continue to do so but this book is appreciated by my Granddaughter.... she is 19 and more his target audience... de Lint addicts will enjoy this and those who like Wolf man stories will also like it..... so I will purchase all the books and send them to granddaughter and she will enjoy them too ( after I have read them of course) .

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it, but I didn't love it 3 Sep 2012
By Tabatha - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of Charles De Lint, in fact he would rate amongst my favourite authors.

I know that I am possibly being a little harsh in my critisism but I did not come to love the characters in this book as I have done in previous reads. I know that this book is aimed at a teenage market, but it didn't draw me in the way that books like Moonheart, The little Country and Some place to be Flying have in previous years.

I liked it, but I didn't love it. Please give us some more books about the loveable characters of Newford.
