Goodbye sisters, goodbye... by Kooskia Goodbye sisters, goodbye... by Kooskia

(SPOILER from "The Sight" of Clement Davies David and "Spirit of the Wolves" of Dorothy Hearst).

I had to do this one...

Two great stories, that greatly affected me for the skill of the authors and the drama of the plot, and the only two books that made me shed tears of sadness...   (not exactly easy to do this with me)

Both are great fantasy story with wolves for protagonsists (she-wolves actually).

And both the stories have a surprising, upsetting and dramatic ends with the protagonist being killed at the very end.

Years ago I was deeply moved by the cruel fate of Larka in "The Sight", but in some ways I accepted it, because it was a great scene of sacrifice.
There is a sequel about that book, not as good as the first one (and boring in some points), but at least it gave a follow-up for some other characters

More recently I finished the third book of Wolf Chronicles triology by Dorothy Hearst.

And that time I was more upset and angry toward the author for the misuse of drama and inserting an equally dramating end at the last pages of the book that that absolutely USELESS for a number of reasons, apart upsetting the fans.
I even wrote a journal about it:  Spirit of the Wolves review (+Sight) SPOILER

This is some kind of final tribute, a final goodbye for these two corageous she-wolves: Larka and Kaala that equally paid the ultimate price, giving up their loves and their friendships, to save the lives of many....

(or in the case of Kaala... just because the author wanted a bit of our rage).

Yeah....

But I don't know.... there are things actually of the book that I enjoyed.
Not to mention that I liked the good ending for Marra and Pell (for some reasons I ever enjoyed Pell a bit more than Azzuan).


Also I really enjoyed (and the thing could have been more exploited and explained) how it's basically revealed that Kaala herself was conceived on purpose: both by the father (who admitted to having done it multiple times), AND Neela: she said clearly that after the death of his love companion never wanted to establish another pack with cubs and another mate.
However she searched for Gannin or get in touch him, and did what she did exactly with that purpose in mind: conceiving Kaala to create a solution to the Promise.

One can say it's a bit cold, yes it is in some ways....
And Kaala herself stress it, even if Neela made clear she truly love her.

While reading the book I had actually in mind to try to draw these revelations in my comic-style, or even the fun scene at the beginning with Azzual and Pell competing to help TaLi to pass a stream and ending to make her fall in the water.

But the ending a bit broke me the mood for drawing them ^^
