Summery: Kammy Helseth’s idea of adventure never amounted to more than getting a boat across to the mainland and finally escaping to London. That was until she stumbled through the mouth of the forest into a world beneath our own, the world of the Semei.

Her only wish is to find her way home but when Jamie, her best friend, is taken into this new world of shapeshifters and Crystals she has no choice but to stand up to her fear and to remain beneath the surface. Hunted by Bagor, King of Alashdial, and those that are loyal to him, Kammy finds herself in the company of a group of outlaws led by Jad, a Prince with a bitter past and a similarly bitter demeanour.

They overcome age-old prejudice to find a way to work together. But Bagor knows a secret about the Crystals that threatens to change everything. Kammy and Jad must find a way to thwart the king and to save Jamie, but that is just the beginning. For Kammy is in possession of a Key and the fate of countless lives, both human and Semei, may rest in her hands.

The Wolf’s Cry was more then I could ever imagine. I short of knew the book was gonna be good cause of the summery but I just couldn’t wrap my head around how epic and amazing the story really was. It just blew my mind how good it was and shocked that this book isn’t huge. I feel like everyone should read this book.

Threw out the whole book I was shipping Jad and Kammy hardcore. Noting really happens between them two but I just kept hoping for that kiss but sadly I didn’t and it really just frustrated me. You knew they have thing together but neither one of them over make that move or hint to it. Maybe it’s because both are just so oblivious to the matter or maybe it’s because people like me to squirm.

I did like how it wasn’t this huge cheesy love story and it mostly surrounds the overall plot of the story and wasn’t rushed. But I just needed something for my poor little fan-girl heart. Of course knowing how this series is going I will get that hopefully soon and then I will jump and the air and sequel. I need Kammy and Jad action or I might just lose it.

The Characters in the book was just amazing. I just love how the story doesn’t surround the life of just one character even tho Jad and Kammy where the main of the story but you really got to understand all the other characters and get that connection and without that you would lose that importance to the story they bring.

The story does get a little fast paste and slow downs but it always has something  going on in the book that will have you always wanting more to the story. It was such a great concept and a very unique story line. There is just so much action that always kept the heat pumping. And then Plot twists that will give you a heart attack and question the overall story.

I really am shocked this book isn’t well known and huge in the book world. It has everything that makes a great story, Amazing Characters and Unique Plot.  The story is epic and stays epic to the beginning to the end. The ending will make you rage for more on it’s HUGE freaking cliff hangar that still has my mind going crazy. I really do see this Author rising in the world and I wouldn’t be suppressed seeing more people reading her work. I TOTALLY recommend this book.

Overall: Powerful Characters and a Epic adventure. The book is so much more then meets the eye. I overall loved the book but just so annoyed that Kammy and Jad never kissed and it just freaking makes me fan-girl flipping crazy.

BorderAbout the Author:

I grew up in a village called Swilland, in the countryside of Suffolk, England. There wasn’t much around, other than farms and fields, but for the most part I loved it, and I still do. I’m a passionate person by nature. I don’t just LIKE things, I LOVE things. Whether it’s a book, a film, or a sports team. Once I decide to enjoy something, I enjoy it to the MAX.

I’m a terrible cook. I prioritise essential social media work over keeping my flat tidy, because I know best. I

Onto my love of reading and, consequently, writing – it was my dad that played a big role in encouraging me to read. He didn’t push me towards books necessarily; he simply read a lot himself. Then I would pick up his books and read them after him. I was reading high and epic fantasy from a very young age. I guess that might explain why I have always loved adventure stories with magic and intrigue and princes and princesses in.

I was aware that I wanted to ‘be a writer’ from a very young age. I was convinced I would be the first best seller that hadn’t reached double figures in age yet! I wrote about the Danshees, furry creatures that lived through a mirror. I wrote about a Sand Bottle that transported a boy into a world of magic. I wrote about a sick girl finding a music boy that healed her, but transported her back in time. (Wow, I always have loved alternate universes…)

When I was eight I wrote my first novel called The Land of No Return. Despite the title, I am determined to return to it one day. I feel like I owe it to my past self. So, as you can see, I have always been writing. There have been times when I have gone weeks without scratching down a word. Then there are days where I churn out multiple chapters and only my body’s silly desire for sleep and/or food can stop me.

I write because I enjoy it. I write fantasy because I enjoy it. I try my hardest to put something of myself into my writing. I like to think my characters have depth, I like to think that my fantasy worlds reflect upon the real world in some way. You guys will be the judge of that but even if you don’t agree I know that I at least try and I can do no more than that.

These days I live in North London and I love it. I work full time and London is a hectic city. Juggling work, writing and a social life is tough but nobody is forcing me to do it so I can’t complain. The dream is that writing will be my career one day but it doesn’t matter if I never quite make it. I love writing too much to ever pack it in.

I am desperate to get a dog. My mum suspects I miss my cats at home more than I miss her. I am a devout Arsenal/Ferrari/Rafael Nadal fan. I get all mad when confronted with a case of social injustice and then I get all mad when people take the fight for social justice too far. I mostly keep those thoughts to myself and simmer with rage. I watch good TV and bad TV, because I can. What I can’t do is enjoy bad books (subjective opinion of course). I just can’t.
