So I'm going to side with several people here(and Goodreads), if just because I was young when I bought this book and for awhile there was no sign of another book online or anywhere else. I've not checked if it took years or if it was my own young incompetence, as I checked the new book area and stores that sold the first so surely I was not stupid. I asked about the next book, etc. I will say the experience this book gave me was infuriating. It was good, sure, not a bad read, but now holds a bit of resentment like some really badly done sequels hold.

I read this book assuming it was stand alone, a book that didn't end vague and confusing. For all the good this book does, it sure does stab you with an ending that goes lolnope, read the second book to see how this wraps up. There are more than two books that I've heard now, and I do desire to know how it "ends", but have so little desire to truly read the next two or so books.

My experience with seeking book #2 was a fruitless search, and yielded me anger, a reread of this book only further pissed me off and made me mad. Pardon my language, but the cliffhanger-natured ending was one of the worst I have ever experienced.

I just checked and if I am reading right, this one came out in 2008, while book two was 2011, maybe I'm crazy but this book was meant to hitch and pull in younger readers to teenagers, while I cannot fault the writer if rl stuff interfered, I will say that is way too long to hold a teenager's breath in your hands and then drag out releases. I waited and searched for two years and then quit. I hated the first book so much I wore the last few pages out rereading it in anger.

I have never had such an experience with a book. I've never had a book cop out on me and crap on me like this one has. I've had bad disappointments, I've had dead characters resurrected by love tropes, I've had cliche romances and unhealthy Fifty Shades bull all shoved down my throat, but this is the one that was so bad to me, it wasn't good.

Maybe I could recommend this book now, now that the next two books are out, but in 2008, not 2011 and 2013, I'd have told you to put it back down. It's not a good book unless the other two are out, and I've not read the other two, so this could be a slide downward instead of a fun ride into another book of fun. It feels to me like if I ever do read the Wolf Chronicles #2 and #3, I might feel less resentment, but if the dates are really that far apart, I understand why so many years ago I had anger at this series that has only barely faded.

Tweede deel van een serie over wolven. Alles wat er gebeurt zie je door de ogen van Kaala, een jonge wolvin, en haar roedelgenoten. Wel apart om te lezen, want hun wereld is eigenlijk heel gelijk aan de onze. Het derde deel is ook vertaald en staat op mijn verlanglijstje.
