A leopard dances under the moon. A wolf prowls. A red-beaked bird flies free.
Three girls born on the same day in wolf light, the magical dusk, are bound together to protect the world. They can dazzle or destroy. They have wind-song and fire-fury at their fingertips, but their enemies are everywhere.
From the bleak steppes of Mongolia and the tropical forests of Ghana to the stormy moors of Cornwall, the lands they love are plundered and poisoned. The girls must rally to perfect their skills and prove the strength of sister magic.
But how far will Zula, Adoma and Linet go to defend their homes?
Steeped in elemental myth, "Wolf Light" is a call to us all to hear the ancient power within us, protect our environment, and conserve our heritage.
It is the ideal read for fans of Kiran Millwood Hargrave's "The Girl of Ink and Stars" and Emmi Itäranta's "The Memory of Water".
