Cover reveal: A Whisper of Wolves by Kris Humphrey

Moontrug is verrrrrrrrrry excited to be taking part in the cover reveal for Kris Humphrey’s debut children’s book, A Whisper of Wolves. As a huge fan of Michelle Paver’s Wolf Brother and Cathryn Constable’s The Wolf Princess, Moontrug was delighted when a new ‘wolf book’ dropped through her letterbox from Stripes Publishers – complete with a wax-sealed letter and a single white feather…

When a raven drops a white feather at the doorstep on the day of your birth, it is a symbol of your destiny. You are a Whisperer – a guardian of the wild… Many years have passed since the people of Meridina last knew war, but a shadow has settled over the kingdom. When Alice and her wolf companion, Storm, sense a demonic presence in the forests, they send for help to protect their village. But they’re running out of time. With the entire balance of the natural world at stake, will Alice and Storm have to face the demons alone?

 

Humphrey’s world of tangled forests full of dogwood and sagebrush and craggy mountains hiding ancient Whisperers is powerfully created – and reminiscent of the setting Michelle Paver creates in Wolf Brother. And just as Torak had to draw on his natural surroundings to fight back against demon forces, so Alice has to ‘give [her] whole self to the earth’ to fight back against the Narlaw. But will her wards, stealth wishes and Whisperer talents be enough to fight these strange creatures back? Find out on 2nd March 2015 when A Whisper of Wolves lands on bookshelves all over the country. In the meantime, here is its fabulous cover. WHOOP!
