                    I love this book and although the beginning is very dull, it is a very good series and I recommend it to anyone who loves wolves. But, I don't recommend that you use it for studying because some of the "facts" about wolves are untrue. Wolves can not have deep green eyes! Only green and those are very rare. Anyway all I'm all I am very pleased with this book and it is for sure a really great read!
