Description

‘Compelling debut. Introduces a significant new voice–has something of the shock effect of Piers Torday’s There May Be a Castle and the raw force of Patrick Ness’s A Monster Calls.’ SUNDAY TIMES CHILDREN’S BOOK OF THE WEEK.’An astonishing exploration of grief and love and wildness.’ Hilary McKay.

A tale of loss that is also a gripping thriller, a realistic study of grief that skirts the margins of fantasy, it walks wolf-like between worlds and genres.

Richard Lambert writes with a poet’s eye; he has created something magical here.

The storytelling is as bold, sinewy and uncompromising as the beast that shadows Lucas in the mountains above his home.

This is a wonderful read and the advent of an exciting new voice in children’s fiction.

JONATHAN STROUD; A stunning, special debut about love and loss and how the wildness can save us.

CHELSEY FLOOD; A smart chilling page-turner that kept me guessing right up to the end.

HAYLEY LONG An insightful novel about bereavement, but also about what growing up might involve in a world that actually needs wolves.

The Wolf Road is exciting, necessary reading. MONIZA ALVI; Moving, menacing, written with cinematic clarity .ANDREW COWAN
