Guest Post – The Wolf in the Whale

Thank you Annalise of Who Needs Sleep? for this awesome review.

In 1000 AD, a young Inuit shaman and a Viking warrior become unwilling allies as war breaks out between their peoples and their gods-one that will determine the fate of them all.

“There is a very old story, rarely told, of a wolf that runs into the ocean and becomes a whale.”

Born with the soul of a hunter and the spirit of the Wolf, Omat is destined to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps-invoking the spirits of the land, sea, and sky to protect her people.

But the gods have stopped listening and Omat’s family is starving. Alone at the edge of the world, hope is all they have left.

Desperate to save them, Omat journeys across the icy wastes, fighting for survival with every step. When she meets a Viking warrior and his strange new gods, they set in motion a conflict that could shatter her world…or save it.

The Wolf in the Whale has something that I adore in books, and something that is very hard to find; a rich, foreign setting. You don’t know how many books I have read that take place in a foreign, mystical land, or even just a different country, that feel like they could have taken place in the middle of a crappy American town without changing a thing.

There were some parts of this book that were difficult to read. It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows. If you’re in the mood for a “feel good book” this isn’t it. However, if you want something that’ll stand out from the dozen or so forgettable titles in your Kindle, this would be the one you should pick up next.
