5.0 out of 5 stars A dark fantasy thriller set in a mysterious world
By Jade Diamond on 14 September 2019
Trigger warnings: Violence and Death, moderately explicit. There is non-explicit sex. There’s also an attempted rape scene which continues to haunt after with flashbacks.

Fear the Wolf is a dark fantasy thriller set in a mysterious world that was torn apart by a great cataclysm. And in this world, people live a life overshadowed by fear and a taught as children to Fear the Wolf and never presume too much. Because The Wolf is not like other beasts. She’s ancient. And she reminds the people who they are and, more importantly, who they’re not!

This story features Protagonist Senla who lives in a village where the most important thing is to “fear the wolf”. You are to do as you are told, and be happy with the plain life you are given. Art, expressing one’s self, and really having a difference of opinion is thought to bring death upon you by the wolf.

She keeps forgetting her place and presuming too much, bringing grief and shame upon her mother and her entire village. Because, after all, if Senla presumes too much, she might insult the Wolf and bring disaster upon the village. Raised by a strict and deeply unhappy mother, Senla constantly rebels at the restrictions set by the village rules and yearns for more. Being taught to fear even making decisions for herself, Senla rebels and breaks the rules.

I also found it interesting that Senla was raised vegetarian and chose to stay that way. I expected her to throw off her dietary restrictions when she rejected most of the rules of her old village, especially since other characters were encouraging her to eat meat so she could survive in the forest. But she decided to live her way and accept that others might make different choices.

It wasn’t preaching vegetarianism, it was more about accepting that every person had to choose their own way of life and people with different beliefs could coexist. To be Honest, I would have done the exact same thing, I’ve been vegetarian for quite a while now, and I really don’t think I would be able to just give that up, even for survival. I have read very few books actually featuring Characters who are Vegetarian so that was a plus for me.

Fear the Wolf is a dark tale that points out humanity’s deepest fears and apprehensions, woven onto a perhaps even darker background of a journey of self-discovery shadowed by wild creatures, a mysterious plague and worst of all, the darkest side of human nature. And from under all that darkness, hope blooms, followed by love and acceptance.

There is not much romance in this story which I prefer anyway as I’m not that interested in a lot of Romance in Books, I prefer it kept to a Minimum. Senla is bisexual, she talked about being attracted to both men and women, but only has relationships with women throughout this book, I mean if you want to call it that.

I thought the world building overall could have been better. The villages and why the act the way they do is well explained but the earth being changed was barely talked about, this might have annoyed me in some other books, but I didn’t really have a problem with it in this book. I’m Okay with how the book ended though. There are some bumps but I thought most of the book was well imagined and well written.

I honestly really enjoyed this story and I would recommend it anyone looking for a quick YA Fantasy that drops you into a world and lets you discover it yourself. I found the pacing good and there was always something going on, it didn’t feel like I was struggling or trudging through just to get to the end of the book. I didn’t feel like the story was rushed considering how short it was either, except the end was a bit rushed as there was a lot of build up and then it was over, but I still loved this story.

I received a copy of Fear the Wolf from BookSirens for review Considerations. This in no way influences my opinion of this book.
