To Save a Wolf

Author: Ano Malay

Title: To Save a Wolf

Author: Ano Malay

Synopsis: The Ten Commandments were tired. Sick and tired of hunters trespassing all over the woods near Kittiwake, killing wolves just because 'they had the right to.' And when Michael and his family found themselves having to take care of a litter of orphaned cubs, that was the last straw. Something had to be done! The solution seemed simple: have a provincial park, where no hunting would be allowed, founded in the region. But, as they would quickly find out, it wouldn't be that easy after all, as they would have to deal with a village completely divided on the issue; a coalition of logging companies intent on keeping their businesses going; but especially, the Tigers, a hunting group led by a man named Andrew Bellamar, who was ready to do anything to get rid of potential enemies. Including murder. 602pp.

A Casualty of War

Author: Susan Taylor Meehan

Synopsis: If the first casualty of war is truth, then its last casualty is hope. Set against the momentous events of the early 20th Century, A Casualty of War is both a romance and a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. Based on a true story, it begins with the chance encounter of a Canadian soldier and a Canadian army nurse after the second battle of Ypres in 1915 and culminates in the historic Winnipeg General Strike four years later. The love story of John Hardie and Maggie O'Connor is tested by war, injury, insurrection and death--and it endures. Interwoven with the present-day narrative of Maggie's grandneice, a nurse working in a small clinic in Zambia, Africa, A Casualty of War is a message of hope for today as well as a memoir of yesterday. 137 pp.

Munro, Craig

Bones of the Past

Author: Craig Munro

The Night Guard walk the streets of the old kingdom of Bialta seeking out threats that are beyond the abilities of the common soldier. Nial is one such threat-a girl changed into something "other" and on the hunt for human souls. Salt, a sailor recently rescued by the Night Guard, has been inducted into their ranks. He's a quick study, but as new threats multiply all around them, will he have what it takes to survive? 

Bialta is not alone in its woes. Sacral, a city that vanished in the distant past, has reappeared where it once stood at the heart of the Wastes. Like many of Sacral's people, Maura is content living a quiet life, ignoring the outside world. But she finds herself desperately fighting to save her home as war comes to the city returned. 

Meanwhile, across the Great Desert, creatures are stirring. Carver, the last living master of the magic known as fleshcarving, has won the support of the tyrant of Tolrahk Esal. Together they will unleash his twisted creations to sweep across the land and forever disrupt the balance of power. 

In this epic tale, there is no good and evil. Armies march, demons feed, and deities unleash their powers on a world that will never be the same.
