Praise for Megan Lindholm:

‘A bright new talent in the fantasy field’
Charles de Lint

‘Lindholm has created a refreshingly different magic’
Locus

‘Fascinating, absorbing and well written’
Fantasy Review

From the Back Cover

A two-part story of primitive magic set in an ancient and savage land reaches its dramatic conclusion

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. 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.

Every day Kerlew's magic grows, reaching out to his guide the Wolf. But the magic also calls to Carp, the evil old shaman, who is pursuing Kerlew and his mother, Tillu, across the frozen wastes. Meanwhile, someone – or something – is committing terrible atrocities in the village that Tillu now calls home. With fear and suspicion at fever pitch, a strange old man appears, with an offer of help…

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!!

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!

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

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!

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.

Fantastic book! Have read a lot of robin hobb and though earlier books under this different pseudonym might not be so good but it was absolutely excellent. A fantastic ending to what started in reindeer people.

This is the second half of the Saga of the Reindeer People (after The Reindeer People).

After vicious Carp has found her again, Tillu agrees to join the reindeer people and become their healer during their migration to the Cataclysm. She takes Kari, the herdlord’s daughter, as apprentice.

But soon the herdlord and his family fall ill with the plague. When his son Rolke dies, Joboam, the local bully and lick-spittle, blames Tillu.

Meanwhile, Kerlew is all but snatched by Carp, who imposes himself as the herdfolk’s new shaman, and becomes his disciple. Following a vision, the young boy one day climbs the vertiginous Najd’s Steps and Heckram has to fetch him back down.

In this second volume, Tillu tries to fit in and becomes very close to Heckram. Together they would like to find out what happened to Elsa the night she was attacked. Tillu also struggles to protect her son from Carp’s influence and get his affection back, alas without much success.

I liked this duology very much. More than Megan Lindholm’s Ki and Vandien series. There was a nice balance between magic, romance and mystery.
