CSFF Tour - The Wolf of Tebron, Day 1
I believe we're having two tours this month, with the first featuring The Wolf of Tebron by C.S. Lakin.
The backcopy to the book says it is a "stirring allegory of God's love in classic fairy tale tradition." It follows the adventures of Joran, a young blacksmith with the gift of mindspeaking with animals. He has a recurrent dream that his wife is trapped by the Moon after he sends her away in a fit of anger. On his journey he rescues a large wolf, who becomes his companion on traveling to the four ends of the world to solve the riddle of his dream and rescuing his wife. Joran suffers through many trials in his journey, but in the end a sacrifice is needed to finish his task. Will Joran risk all for what seems to be a dream?
Ms. Lakin appears to be a prolific writer, as she has another contemporary book that was recently released, Someone to Blame, (the CFBA tour will be featuring it later this month). You can find out more about her from the website for The Wolf of Tebron and her personal blog.
As always, you can find different opinions from my varied tourmates below. I will have a review of the book in a later post as well.
