"The poignancy of the wolf's plight, which comes across clearly, is one of the best aspects of this work. The author
deftly conveys the human-like emotional connection between the wolves and the sheer wretchedness of their situation.
The author does a fabulous job of getting into the minds of the characters, be they wolf spirits, the wolves themselves,
or humans. The setting is very realistic and the story has a nice even flow and competent style, making for an
enjoyable read. I think this writer has considerable skill with words and it was a pleasure to read them."
Amazon Breakthrough Novel Professional Reviewer
“This book is a love story filled with both joy and sadness as people bear witness to what freedom in the wild means
to these beautiful animals.”
“As the tears gathered towards my chin, I realized I was only on the fifth page. At that moment, it became clear that
this would be an intense ride.”
Jacqueline Merriweather - New York
“With each turn of the page you're not fully prepared for the emotional, often times, unrelenting roller-coaster ride
you're about to be taken on.”
Gary C. Garski - Phoenix, Arizona
“Since receiving this wonderful novel and I began to read, I was lost for five hours, and could not put the novel down.
When I finished reading, I missed the characters that became a part of me, so I started to read the story again.”
Christina M. Stefurak – Victoria, Australia
“R.M. Cera both entertains and educates the reader. I found myself reaching for the tissues as I came to know each
of the characters and their stories.”
Debra Gaynor, Reviewer “ReviewYourBook.com”
“Mr. Cera brilliantly links man to his age-old neighbor by using a familiar conduit, the dog. What better way to
understand the wolf than through a common friend? Similarly, the author helps us make the connection by showing us
love, fear, anger, jealousy, and compassion in our own human existence juxtaposed to that of the wolf.”
Michael J. Wright - Kenilworth, New Jersey
“Once you pick this book up, you will not want to put it back down until you are finished. This is an amazing well-
written descriptive story that definitely gives you an understanding of wolves.”
Lisa M. Hendrix – Elwood, Indiana
"Mr. Cera's emotionally moving portrayal of the family interrelationships among wolves and the major survival
challenges they continuously face has significantly deepened my understanding and appreciation of them and has
helped me to view the world more clearly through their eyes."
George M. Shears - Cotton, Minnesota
travails of people. It was educational as well as a great read, and now I will think of the wolf and myself in a totally
Mary Marra – Ortley Beach, New Jersey
“Russell M. Cera’s knowledge of subjects, both lupine and human resulted in a reading masterpiece; the reader will
exercise his emotions from tears of sadness to those of joy."
Jeffrey Lyon – Hope, New Jersey
"What a wonderful treat to read what is really more than fiction about wolves and the emotions they stir among
thousands of years of human coexistence. This book is a saga that will introduce more humans to the strife of the
wolf (and the Native American Indians). It would make an excellent full length movie more so for Cera's thorough
research than Peter Benchley's Jaws or Farley Mowat's Never Cry Wolf.
This work illustrates expertise in planning the story line, choice of characters and how Cera brings them to life."
"Being an animal caretaker and educator at a wolf preserve for 12 years, I have witnessed the social structures,
loyalties and antics first hand that Russell M. Cera's book so accurately depicts. Hopefully more people will read this
book and get a true understanding about their life and struggles to survive."
Becky Mace - Lakota Wolf Preserve, Columbia, NJ
perfectly how much wolves are misunderstood. It felt as if I were connected to each wolf in the pack. They were no
longer the statistics of my studies, but became realities as I read. The novel has a perfect balance of looking into the
lives of wolves, but at the same time showing the struggles that some people face as well. We learn much about
wolves, yet still have the drama, intrigue and romance that takes place in people's everyday lives. This is one of the
best novels that I have ever read."
K. Tuthill - Biology Studies in Animal Behavior - NY
"I am caregiver to 24 wolves. Their family values are so much the same as ours and their hierarchy is a given. Russell
Cera's research was accurately phenomenal. It is a story of both love and compassion with two species, man and wolf,
that fight to protect all they believe in, and that is FAMILY. Thank you Russell for giving me a reason to fight harder
for these misunderstood creatures."
Kathy Baudendistel - Wolf Creek Habitat Brookville, Indiana
"Mr. Cera has managed to write a novel that transcends the epic battle of the survival of wolves. It depicts the human
frailties pervasive in our society that range from lack of knowledge to prejudices that compromise the true human
spirit. A MUST READ."
Manny DaSilva New Bern, North Carolina
"Mr. Cera, does a marvelous job of educating readers in a way they don't know they are being taught. A wonderful
tale that vividly comes to life."
