Two lives run in parallel: The life of a girl, Karen, as she lies in coma in hospital, and the life of a fox in an ancient and dark world. A brilliant fantasy for ages 10 and up.

Review:

Pursued and beaten by bullies intent on punishing her for alleged boyfriend-stealing, Karen, an English teen, slips into a coma--and a parallel altered state as a fox in ancient times. Suddenly, while lying unconscious in a hospital bed, she is also running through a forest, seeking shelter and sustenance, even decayed meat. And as her grandmother waits vigilantly by Karen the human's side, Karen the fox becomes embroiled in a strange political intrigue involving a dethroned king, a shepherd with the power to hear others' thoughts, and a peasant uprising.

This dark, unusual fantasy will capture the imagination of readers who loved David Clement-Davies's The Sight and Brian Jacques's Redwall series. Vivid imagery and a complex storyline demand close attention; the stark reality of life for each of the characters has no easy resolution, and readers will be compelled to stick it out with Karen to the bittersweet end. (Ages 12 and older) --Emilie Coulter
