Fantasy Review

Product Description

The compelling sequel to The Reindeer People , a saga of magic and triumph in an ancient world.

Kerlew stared at the immense stone that jutted up from the tundra. Power radiated from it like heat from a fire. It attracted the boy and filled him with fear.

And then he was alone.

There was a brush of sound, of dark moving shadows and then the sudden flash of a glistening eye. He pressed his palms back against the stone’s rough surface and faced the night creatures that surrounded him.

The magic is strong in Kerlew. Every day it grows, reaching out to the Wolf spirit that will be his guide. But the magic in Kerlew that calls to the beasts and to the spirit world also calls to Carp, the evil old shaman, who follows Kerlew and his mother, Tillu, across the frozen wastes. When he finds them, he will bind them to him, and shape Kerlew’s powers for his own uses.

4.0 out of 5 stars I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book 22 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a beautifully written, clever, subtle novel. It's very different from the writer's work as Robin Hobb - and yet the theme of a man/wolf bond, the tall, black-haired, complex hero, certainly do point to her later work. It's refreshingly different from the run of the mill fantasy 'adventure', which would please some, disappoint others. As a sequel to 'The Reindeer People', it ties all the ends up neatly. Common to the writers work as Robin Hobb, you're left thinking about the issues raised, and with affection for the characters created. On the downside, I do think this and 'The Reindeer People' would have been much better presented as one novel. However, on the strength of this novel I do intend to read all the Megan Lindholm novels as they are republished - whilst eagerly waiting for the next Robin Hobb trilogy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Shaman 24 July 2002
Format:Paperback
The conclusion to The Reindeer People sees the development of this intense story. Megan Lindolm's skill at making magic seem real is once again seen in action. If you like natural magic (shamanism), weird intense kids for heros (the shaman's apprentice) and native american folklore, this is the book for you! A great staisfying ending too!

4.0 out of 5 stars A dark fantasy with a lot going for it 30 April 2001
Format:Paperback
For anyone who doesn't know Megan Lindholm and Robin Hobb are the same person. So from that it should come as little suprise that this book expands upon themes that croppoed up in Robin Hobbs Assasin Trilogy
Expanding upon the use of the Wit and the pack relationship this book follows a young boy on both a journey of self discovery and a coming of age as he and his mother travel with their steps dogged by as evil a villain as you could wish in the old shaman (indeed if there's a fault to this book it lies in the stereotypical nature of the villan)
If you've enjoyed Robin Hobb then you must pick this up if you've yet to experience it then this and Alien Earth are the places to start

4.0 out of 5 stars The Rise of the Najd 16 Jun 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. The awakening of the specialised shamanistic powers, previously untapped in young Najd Kerlew is a really engrossing plot-thread that Lindholm has created in this larger world of herding, travelling and hunting. Equally as engaging if not more so for me is the continued exploration of the tentative relationship between caring herdsman Heckram and flighty healer Tillu.

However, I have to admit to feeling slightly deflated with the final weaving together of all the plot threads in this concluding 234-page story. I believe both `The Reindeer People' and `Wolf's Brother' were originally intended to be released as one volume (`The Saga of the Reindeer People') and while I don't feel the story suffers with being split into two parts, for me there is a disparity between the magical acts (particularly in the final scenes) and the very practical, bordering on `ordinary' world that Lindholm has so carefully cultivated throughout both novels. Unlike the skilling, wit bonds and wizardwood magics of Hobbs trilogies (this author's other alias) that are so vividly explained and believably introduced into the `mundane' reality of the protagonist, I couldn't quite decifer Kerlew's particular brand of shamanistic magic and so when he eventually utilised his powers it was to my mind a bit of an anti-climax and consequently the final reveal didn't really excite me the way I expected it to.

Yet still, this is a fantastically engaging and at times brutal world that Lindholm has brought into being and one that I was left wishing I could know more about. Tillu, Heckram, Kerlew and of all the herdspeople are a heady combination, so I'm at a loss now that the curtains have been drawn on yet another unique land imagined into being by this talented author. More please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Megan Lindholm duo 14 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book, Wolf's Brother, is the 2nd Megan Lindholm books I've read. The first was Reindeer People. Both of them were very good, plenty of detail, description, and feelings. was very impressed with both books. Hope there will be a book 3!!! I'm well and truly hooked on Tillu and her son, Kerlew, his shaman powers are building, so we should expect a brilliant 3rd book. What Tillu and Kerlew had to do to survive was very impressive. The description of the habitat and the way the tribes lived, what they were expected to do and how they were expected to behave within the tribal politics, well, it all came alive for me. I cheered for them for their success of their endeavours at the end of the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Conclusion 1 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another great book and a compulsive read. Megan Lindholm has a way of keeping you enthralled right to the end. So sad that there isn't another book to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing as always. 2 Feb 2014
By Fleur
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This series is unusual for Hobb. The setting makes you feel like you are reading about Indians during colonial times. As usual there is a magic element and unusual storylines typical to her writing style which I love. What I love most about her books is how you really feel for the characters. Great books! Love them as much as all the other ones I've read, which is all but the Lindholm pen name ones. One of my most favourite authors.

I enjoyed so much reading Wolf's Brother, the sequel of The Reindeer People. It is also a bit of a "Who Done It novel" based in the Bronze Age and also a love story, all the while... Read more
