Great narration, moving story

I joined audible, primarily for the discount on the mp3 player, but also because of long commutes and office hours, I spent days browsing the site looking for a suitable book to take on my travels.

I am a very big scifi and fantasy fan. I am also an animal lover. Some of my favorite books include: Alien Chronicles, The Wild Road, The Golden Cat, The Last Unicorn, and Spindle's End. And I would place this book right up there with them. If you've read any of the aforementioned books, you will enjoy Promise of the wolves.

It may frighten young children, as it has some pretty heavy moments, lots of death, strife, struggle, etc.

But for preteens, teens, and tweens, I think this is an excellent book, and like other popular Young Adult novels, I think adults can enjoy it just as much as their children. I don't even have children and I enjoyed this book immensely.

The narrator does an excellent job. Her voice is very pleasant, and she even throws her voice a bit to differentiate when certain characters are speaking.

This was my first experience with audible and audio books in general. But I am overall, pleased with this download and would recommend it to others who enjoy fantasy adventure or love animals.
