This review is from: Wolf Captured (Tom Doherty Associates Books) (Hardcover)
"Wolf Captured" was yet again about Firekeeper and her friend the wolf Blind Seer. Derian was also a part of this novel. This time the three are captured and sent to Liglimosh. The Liglimoshti think that Firekeeper is a maimalodalum (someone who is able to change between animal and human at will). In addition the Liglimoshti consider Firekeeper's ability to speak with animals of great value.
While Derian and Firekeeper are captives at the beginning, their status changes early on. Firekeeper's ability to communicate with animals raises her status among the human inhabitants of Liglimosh. There too, they have Wise Ones (or Royal Kind as in Firekeepers family). But while the Royal Kind are feared and hunted in Derian's country, they are cherished as diviners in Liglimosh. Here, too, Derian is valued for his extraordinary ability to commune with horses. In addition, he falls in love.
Of course, someone wants to kill Firekeeper and Blind Seer. Where would a fantasy novel be without heroes. Yet again Firekeeper proves herself a true friend to the Wise Ones. Her own prejudices are challenged and growth occurs. In addition, Firekeeper discovers what happened when her settlement burned all those years ago.
