The Wolf of Tebron

Author: C. S. Lakin

Genre: Young Adult/Fantasy/Allegory

Series: Gates of Heaven #1

A young blacksmith must undertake a perilous journey to the four ends of the world to rescue his wife, who is held captive by the Moon. Along the way, he befriends a powerful wolf who encourages, protects, and ultimately sacrifices his life to save his human friend. A stirring allegory of God’s love in classic fairy tale tradition.

This book was FANTASTIC. Well-written, well-paced, humorous, wise, exciting, and enthralling. Not to mention the eye-candy book cover is just GORGEOUS.  C. S. Lakin incorporated quotes from C. S. Lewis, G. K. Chesterton, and more amazing authors through the wolf’s ‘wise sayings’ – this greatly added to the book for me.

This is a splendid, reversed-retelling of “East of the Sun, West of the Moon” – with plenty of godly wisdom thrown in. There is nothing objectionable;  no inappropriate content, one of those classics good for young AND old audiences!

Ages: 1-92

  1. Yes!!! Sounds great!!! I’ve heard about the book before, but have been wondering FOREVER what it was . . . all I heard was something about, ‘the moon capturing a guy’s wife.’ It sounded kinda strange . . . ;)

    Great review!!
