Tanith / Wolf-woman, Sherryl Jordan
Jordan enchants me. I can't help it, okay? I love her stories! They're like these heavily-weighted fables with heroines willing to enrage entire nations if they feel the cause is true! Tanith is no exception. Also:
- I enjoy Jordan's writing. I think she strikes a strong description-action balance.
- I know Jordan is willing to "go there." I can't always peg the direction things will go because she's willing to let characters hurt, willing to let things be hard, willing to tackle things I think many YA authors shy away from. It makes the story more compelling.
- There are sexual references but no sex scenes.
- No swearing.
- There are references to violence and brutality.
- Yes, it probably helps that there are wolves. I love.
Ryan -- I know, I know, you want to borrow it tonight. Hold your horses!
NB: I prefer the cover, above, but the title Tanith. My copy of the book has the right title and the wrong cover image *grumble grumble;*
