Ysolda has lived her life in the shadow of the wolf queen's tyrannical rule but, safe in her forest haven, she has never truly felt its threat.
Until one day when a mysterious earthquake shakes the land and her older sister Hari vanishes in its wake.
Accompanied by her loyal sea hawk, Nara, Ysolda embarks on a desperate rescue mission. But when she is forced to strike a bargain with the wolf queen herself, she soon finds herself embroiled in a quest for a magic more powerful - and more dangerous - than she could ever have imagined ...
Beyond a lush and lyrical tale, In the Shadow of the Wolf Queen is also a heart-pounding adventure, filled with power-hungry rulers, conquered nations and of course, wolves. And at the centre of it all are Ysolda and her sister, carving a place in a world that is teetering on a knife edge.
