I want to say I enjoyed Wolf-speaker but I can't because I really didn't. The story was boring; it was an isolated event and restricted to a single location with Daine accompanied by furries. However, there is further exploration of her wild-magic that she used to rally all sorts of animals for her cause, so that was good. And the writing is still enjoyably different from current books. I'm also glad that there is no lingering, page(s)-filled anatomical descriptions of characters, hot or not.
