"[I]t's clear we're in the hands of a master storyteller. 'The Mad Wolf's Daughter' feels like an instant classic."
—The New York Times Book Review
★"Empathetic, bold, and entirely herself at a time when women were dismissed as weak, Drest shines in this fast-paced adventure."
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Drest is a wonderfully fierce and feisty heroine, able and quick of wit, and she is joined by other sympathetic and complex characters. . . . The plot is packed with twists and turns, and the ending leaves enough to suggest a sequel."
Praise For The Hunt for the Mad Wolf's Daughter
“Magras deftly balances introspection and action as Drest proves herself willing to risk everything—and the result will leave readers cheering. . . . A standout among quest tales for middle graders.”
“Magras maintains the breathtaking pace of the previous book . . . In addition to all the action, the book is laced with humor while maintaining an undercurrent of thoughtfulness. No sophomore slump here: the book is every bit as good as its predecessor.”
"The Hunt for the Mad Wolf’s Daughter is a gripping, white-knuckle adventure. Readers will love cheering for this unforgettable heroine."
—Dan Gemeinhart, author of The Honest Truth and The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise
Praise For Secret of the Shadow Beasts
“Percy Jackson meets The Witcher in this fast-paced middle-grade fantasy filled with creatures of the night. . . Nora proves to be an endearing and courageous protagonist . . . [R]eaders will be equally enchanted by the world of Brannland and the mythology behind the Umbrae. A thrilling fantasy.”
"Part science fiction, part medieval quest, Secret of the Shadow Beasts sparks with action and swells with emotion. Diane Magras has created a diverse cast of compelling kid characters who forge strong friendships, fight off terrifying beasts, and above all, seek the truth. I couldn’t put it down!"
—Rajani LaRocca, Newbery Honor-winning author of Red, White, and Whole; Midsummer's Mayhem; and Much Ado About Baseball
