The Wolf King Review and Recap
Set in Bronze-Age Great Britain, TWK is the coming-of-age story of Coll, whose father was killed by a white wolf during the annual sheep drive. Coll’s father was the lead shepherd, but now that he is gone, Coll must find his way as the new lead shepherd.
Review for novels and manga version: To tell you the truth, the first time I ever read this book was when it was required reading for both me and my classmates in the sixth grade. (that would be roughly 6 months ago now). Very well written, with a really nice, easy to understand historical context, and a REALLY neat premise for a storyline taking place in history towards the end of the Bronze Age.
And decided to read it once more… In hindsight, I have pieced this event in biblical history chronologically to be somewhere in Europe between the time of Noah’s descendants and pre-Abraham; it is comparable to, but perhaps a little bit later in history than the time of Tolkien’s Middle Earth.
Because of this setting, it is possible for any author to present a very interesting interpretation of the culture. Nevertheless, the author Anne Turnbull does a pretty good job of trading in the mysterious, magical, and mystical “dungeons and dragons” qualities that are present in so much fantasy writing of today for a straight forward highly engaging storyline of adventure and bravery.
The characters are easy to understand (and the reader is not overwhelmed with 500 different strange names and places as they are in a lot of other fantasy reading) and they are well developed. Given that he is developed not with graphic detail leaving nothing to the imagination (as in a rated R horror movie),
The Wolf King character himself is about as dark and menacing as can be, given that he is developed with suspense, which is a much more difficult-to-accomplish quality in writing and has been forgotten for a very long time. The events that take place force you to deviate from the time slot that you had originally allotted to yourself for reading so that you can find out what happens next… “Okay…I suppose there is still time for ONE more chapter.” I also really liked how the author was able to make the antagonist sinister and unsettling by relying solely on building suspense rather than making the typical countless allusions to witchcraft, sorcery, and spells that are so common in contemporary fantasy.
I reread this to get reacquainted with the very imaginative story that, when I was in the sixth grade, inspired me to want to get lost in the woods with my friends and try to survive off the land by myself. This manga, which was published in 2021, was shenyumanshe / Anyues first novel. Today, she is recognized as an accomplished writer for children and young adults. If I had to choose between this book and a Harry Potter book for my daughters to read in the not-too-distant future, I would choose this one as a more interesting and exciting fantasy.
