In Lupa, Mother of Wolves has a central character whose determination, bravery, and sheer magnetism keep you turning the pages. It has the sureness of focus that can encompass both the comings and goings on a vast battlefield and a dark, confined animal hole where two children hide from pursuing dogs. It has a descriptive power that can evoke both the beautiful and ever-changing landscape of a tidal river and the menacing darkness of a coal mine. And it has a twist: when Lupa needs help at the end of her struggle, it comes from the most unexpected source. This is a book that held my attention, and stayed with me long after I had read the final page.
The characters are wonderfully vivid and detailed, though a reader will not see the faces. The view is restricted to watching eyes that seek the forms out of the darkness of dreams. One will find the familiar literary guises of underestimated heroes, and villains who hold a banner of right and good; but will be, perhaps, pleasantly surprised to find a strong and effervescent warrior of a female hero by the name of Lupa. Thankfully, such power and humanity in a female hero is becoming more readily available to readers. Brooks has created a hero which is both wolf and chameleon, living her life as a warrior/leader exacting justice on those who think themselves above others and the karmic law that hold all accountable for his or her own actions.
The plot is well honed and written skillfully. The work encapsulates a number of stories, which are each an important portion of life experienced by the hero and those close to her. Mother of Wolves is an interwoven tapestry of life and all of the experiences and complications involved. A reader will view the landscape as those traveling the wilds, not for fun and adventure, but for continued existence and the life of all held dear.
I haven't written many reviews on Amazon, but this book is such a little treasure that I felt I had to write a review on this to encourage people not to miss out on this great story :)
I had never heard of Zoe Brooks before I came across this book, but she is definitely an author I will be watching from now on!
