Bestselling author Kathryn Lasky's newest hit series is a stunning spin-off set among the wolves of Ga'Hoole.

The wolf pup Faolan was born with a twisted paw, a slight defect that caused his wolf clan to abandon him in the forest to die. But Faolan, with the help of the grizzly bear who raised him as her own, survived.

Now he's made it back to his clan as a gnaw wolf, the lowest ranking pack member. And the hardships are just beginning. Another gnaw wolf, Heep, is jealous of Faolan and sets him up for failure. As if these humiliations are not enough, Faolan is framed for the murder of a wolf pup. Faolan must catch the culprit in time and prove he deserves to be a full member of the clan.

Read from the Book

From Wolves of the Beyond #2: Shadow WolfFaolan was concentrating as hard as he ever had. At last he was in the byrrgis. The hard earth flew beneath him. He was barely aware of his paws striking the ground except for a tingle that traveled up through his femurs. But he felt a surge of vibrations from hundreds of paws pounding the earth. Signals flew back and forth, except now there was a nick in the pristine silence.Urskadamus! That cursed gnaw wolf Heep was clicking his teeth as if he were gnawing a bone, making Faolan miss the signals. He is doing this on purpose! Faolan stumbled again. Heep moved closer and, with eyes full of treachery, opened his mouth wide to slash his teeth together. The sounds scratched into Faolan's brain like splinters. Edme looked at him in dismay. The first signal had been given for the kill rush, and Faolan had missed his cue. He sprang off his hind legs but was too late, stumbling again and sprawling flat. Faolan, the wolf who had risen on his hind legs like a grizzly to confront a bull moose, lay sprawled on the ground.
