This Week's Prompt Is:
Best and worst reads for 2016. Which would you recommend, which would you not?
Summary: Firekeeper only vaguely remembers a time when she didn't live with her "family," a pack of "royal wolves"-bigger, stronger, and smarter than normal wolves. Now her pack leaders are sending her back to live among the humans, as they promised her mother years ago.
Some of the humans think she may be the lost heir to their throne. This could be good-and it could be very, very dangerous. In the months to come, learning to behave like a human will turn out to be more complicated than she'd ever imagined.
But though human ways might be stranger than anything found in the forest, the infighting in the human's pack is nothing Firekeeper hasn't seen before. That, she understands just fine. She's not your standard-issue princess-and this is not your standard-issue fairy tale.

This one had been sitting on my bookcase for years and I went through a big reading slump in the summer and this is what got me out of it. The story of wolves and a feral child set in a land wear magic is looked on with fear? How could I not love this? The writing and story were so intense and beautifully written I read the second book just as quick. Now I have to read the rest of the series. I'd recommend this to all fans of fantasy. It's 16 years old but very awesome.

I don't know why this one was such a miss for me. I loved the artwork and I'm usually such a sucker for fantasy especially epic fantasy told in comic form. This one's story just didn't work for me, I found it to be jumbled and chaotic and not in the fun way of not knowing what was going to happen next I was lost from the get go. Can't win 'em all but this one definitely wasn't for me and isn't one I can say I would recommend.
