Wolfcry by Amelia Atwater Rhodes


Summary: Oliza Shardae Cobriana is heir to Wyvern's Court, home of the avians and serpiente, whose war with each other ended just before Oliza was born. But hatred is slow to die, and not everyone likes the expressive way in which Urban, a serpiente dancer, is courting Oliza--especially not Marus, her reserved avian suitor. And when Urban is found beaten in avian land, Oliza is filled with despair. How can she be expected to lead a unified society if her people still cannot live peacefully together?

Before Oliza can try to mend the rift in Wyvern's Court, she is kidnapped by mercenaries, who take her deep into wolves' territory. As Wyvern princess, all Oliza has ever wanted is to see a future where she can find love and take a mate without inciting another war. The time is now. She owes it to her people--and to herself.

Review: Gosh this was such a wonderful book. In terms of conflict and romance it was by far the best one. I never realized what a strong character Oliza was until I read Wolfcry. She showed how a true queen should act and what a true queen should do in order to honor and protect her people. Even so, the ending caught me off guard. I'm excited to read Wyvernhail. It has to be beyond amazing in order to beat this one.

Without a doubt, 5 howls. Very fitting if I do say so myself. :)
