The Wolf by K.R. Thompson Blog Tour

Their secret has been safe for hundreds of years, a legacy and legend that has been carefully kept by six guardians. They are known as the Keepers. But before the legend of the Keepers—came the Wolf.

Once upon a time, there lived a man whose fate would rest with two sisters. One will hold his heart. With her, he discovers a love that will last forever, though it will come with a price.

From the other sister, he will learn fortitude as he discovers that she holds the power to destroy all he holds dear. For as easily as one sister captures his heart, the other has found the way to trap his soul.

One mountain stood off in the distance. Its peak was the highest. It grazed the heavens. It was the closest point that he could get to his love, now in the inky, deep black sky. It seemed it would be the perfect place to make his presence—and his demands—known.

The trip up the mountain took a great deal of the night, his strength had waned, but anger and determination pushed him up to the giant boulder, far above, jutting out into the night air.

The moon was beyond his reach—so close, yet, so far away. Swift Foot stood on the edge of the rock. A cool breeze greeted him, brushing softly against his cheek. He felt Shining Star had sent the breeze to touch him.

“I am here,” he told her softly, looking up into the sky. Then, he took a deep breath, and announced loudly to the Great Spirit, “I have come to speak to you.”

The breeze was replaced with a sudden burst of warm air, an acknowledgement of sorts.

He took a step forward, feeling the balls of his feet touch the edge of the rock. He was close now.

“You will put me there with her or I will die!” The raw emotion caused his voice to crack, but he knew the Great Spirit heard his demand.

A lightning bolt cracked from a cloudless sky in front of him, striking the ground below. No whispering voices came to his mind or thundering ones either. It seemed the Great Spirit wasn’t in the mood for negotiations. It wasn’t the response Swift Foot had wished to hear or see. Still, he stood on the rock, while his love watched him from her place in the heavens.

That was just as well, Swift Foot decided. He would be with her soon, with or without any help. He would never spend a day without her.

Another lightning strike lit up the sky as he lifted his arms out, and fell…

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Nice start for a prequel. I'm interested and it was definitely enjoyable, but short and really not much to go on. Overall entertainment is three stars.

This book is the introduction to the series that follows. It tells the story of two Native Americans, Swift Foot and his love, Shining Star. Upon Shining Star's death, Swift Foot tries to bargain with the Great Spirit and fails. The Great Spirit gives Swift Foot a gift, which takes him many years to come to grips with.

Once his grief has eased, Swift Foot returns to his tribe, only to find the village decimated. Searching for survivors and finding them, he asks the Great Spirit to watch over the remaining members of his family, his village. Thus the Keepers are borne.

Not sure what I was expecting, this book was well written, but I felt like a little more detail could have been given to describe the gift of the Keepers.

This is a prequel to The Keeper Saga. It is an extremely short read.

This basically gives you a short insight into how the Keepers come to be. Due to the length of the novella I couldn’t really get into the story. The writing was good and there is a depth to the character that is very unexplored. I am for sure going to be reading the next book to see where these characters take us.
