Amarok

Amarok - Angela J. Townsend good stuff. quick read, only took a couple of hours.Full review to come.=D*************************originally posted on www.bunnycates.com************************* Amarok by Angela Townsend is one of those books where you really can’t say a lot about the book – without accidentally spoiling one of the major plot points.It is, like the synopsis states, a story about a girl who runs away from an abusive home life only to be abducted and held captive by a “mountain man”. While in captivity, she befriends a wolf, and the story progresses from there.I loved the characters in this story. I loved Emma (I kept just wanting to step in and save her!), and thought Amarok was as human a character as any of the “people” in the book. I felt the relationship build between the girl and the wolf was very “real” as they were both being held “captive” so to speak, and they bonded to survive. If that makes sense? I’m sorry, you’ll have to read the book to know what I am talking about, I think. LOLIn Conclusion:I really enjoyed this one! It was a fast read (read it in one night), both because it wasn’t very long AND because the action of the story and the writing style just made it whip on by. I didn’t want to put it down, and I think you guys will really enjoy it especially those of you who enjoy suspense drama/paranormal/Indian legend type books!Mom Notes:Contains violence (abduction, etc) and language. (I am not sure if I remember right about language. I am thinking there were a couple of cuss words, but not 100% positive. While I was reading and so into the story I didn’t stop to take notes. So to err on the side of caution, I will say language…) Due to violent subject matter this book would be a ages 13+ book, in my opinion. I wouldn't have a problem with my kids reading it, but I would want to be available to them afterwards (or even during) if they needed/wanted to discuss it.
