about

Twelve-year-old Jax is sure his secret is safely hidden within the vast forests of Oldenglen, his new home in the remote mountains of Oregon.

But that is before the school bully provokes the wild beast inside him—the savage streak of wolf the glen’s magic has awoken—and Jax lashes out, risking discovery of his strange condition and the mysteries of the glen. Now the bully and his gang have stormed Oldenglen, looking for answers—and revenge.

Lone Wolf, the second in The Oldenglen Chronicles middle-grade fantasy series, pits English schoolboy Jax, his best friend Sarah, and the four-legged and winged inhabitants of the wildwood against the intruders.

As he struggles to master the wolf within, Jax is propelled along a path into grave danger. Lives hang by a thread as both friend and foe discover the dark woods conceal greater perils than the enemies they know.

***** Five Stars - Human nature, animal instincts, predator, and prey all converge as the hunters become the hunted. The forest comes alive through the eyes of one very special twelve-year-old in Lone Wolf, the second book in a series from Robin Mason set amid the rivers, mountains, and enchanted woods of Oregon. Human nature, animal instincts, predator, and prey all converge as the hunters become the hunted in this installment of the Oldenglen Chronicles....Middle-grade students will relate to Jax's angst as he tries to understand, accept himself, and become comfortable in his own skin while standing up to the mean kids, all while unintentionally impressing the middle-school ladies with his vast knowledge of ornithology. Fans of Erin Hunter's Warriors series who enjoy talking animals and a focus on nature will want to explore the Oldenglen Chronicles with Jax and Sarah--Foreword Clarion ReviewsThis laudable tale is more exciting than the series' first, which Mason co-wrote with his father. Handling exposition thoroughly but efficiently, the author dives right into the story to establish the new villains. Noah, et. al., even if mere eighth-graders, are genuinely scary; he and older brother Nate, in a discernible black truck, follow Jackson's bus all the way home. Despite further distress (Jackson's missing porcupine buddy Squiffle) and the occasional menacing animal (a bull elk literally looking for a fight), the narrative's predominantly jaunty. The good guys, for one, are surprisingly skilled at psychological warfare, opting to disturb the bullies' sleep and campsite, which results in hilarious directives: "Send in the moles." [214] Jackson battles relatable issues, too, including loneliness, feeling like both wolf and human with no real pack of his own. A morally-sound hero who earns sympathy and cheers as a champion of the wildlife.--Kirkus Reviews
