9780765341587: The Dragon of Despair (Wolf)

Raised by smart, language-using wolves, far from humans, then brought back to the court of Hawk Haven, young Firekeeper had to learn to cope with human society. Fortunately, for one raised amidst intelligent pack animals, the intrigues of humans are neither complex nor wholly unfamiliar.Now Melina Shield, the beautiful, unscrupulous, and thoroughly discredited sorceress whose power-hungry intrigues have already made so much trouble for Firekeeper, has once more used her power to cloud men's minds, and has induced the ruler of New Kelvin to marry her. This is bad news on a lot of fronts.It's particularly bad news for Firekeeper. Melina hasn't abandoned her schemes to gain power through the use of forbidden ancient sorcery. And the leaders of the royal beasts who watch over this world have given Firekeeper--and her intelligent wolf companion Blind Seer--the responsibility for stopping her.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Jane Lindskold

"This engrossing tale of feral myth and royal intrigue offers plenty of
action as well as fascinating anthropological detail. . . . A beautiful and
complex book." --Publishers Weekly on Through Wolf's Eyes

"What do you get when you mix lost magic and feral children with dynastic
politics, wolf social dynamics, treason, and overambitious social-climbing
parents? You get Jane Lindskold's new novel, Through Wolf's Eyes, and another
stay-up-to-finish-the-last-page read.” --David Weber

"Very satisfying. . . . As good as, if not better than, the previous book,
unlike some trilogies where the second book is the weakest of the whole."
--Charles de Lint on Wolf's Head, Wolf's Heart

"Her characters live--they're real, but they are different. And the world
they live in lingers in the mind; heroic, squalid, exotic, everyday. I was
convinced that it went on by itself when I turned the last page. Bravo!"
--S. M. Stirling on Through Wolf’s Eyes

About the Author:

Jane Lindskold lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She is the author of Through Wolf’s Eyes and Wolf’s Head, Wolf’s Heart and several prior fantasy novels, including Changer and Legends Walking. With Roger Zelazny, she wrote Lord Demon and Donnerjack.
