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.

Editorial Reviews

***** 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 Reviews This laudable tale is more exciting than the series' first, which Mason co-wrote with his father...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***** Five Stars - In Lone Wolf Robin Mason has created a marvelous world filled with suspense and wonderful characters. While bullying is a common plot trope in books for young people, Mason does a great job of creating a story with a fresh and new way. His descriptions are vivid and rich and transported me into the world from the first scene. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves magical, talking animals, suspense-filled adventures, and relatable characters. The interaction between Jackson and the animals is natural and avoids falling into the corny pit. Also, the pacing and action kept me reading, wanting to find out what happens next. All the characters were engaging and rich, with varying personalities and magic that made me wish I lived in Oldenglen. This is unquestionably a book worth reading and a series worth following. Kris Moger for Readers' FavoriteLone Wolf is an excellent fantasy adventure for eight to twelve-year-olds. The story is appropriate for tweens with issues of bullying and an overlying theme of friendship. Learning the value of being one with nature and preserving the wildlife and their habitats is also a major component throughout this series. While recommended for young readers, Lone Wolf has lessons for everyone of all ages. Teri Davis for Bestsellers WorldI would recommend “Lone Wolf” by Robin Mason for people who like fiction and nature. It was engaging and came with a powerful message about how important it is to preserve nature. I couldn’t put this book down until I finished it, and I’m very hopeful that there will be more books in the series! Evan Weldon for Reader Views
