Taeowolf by Kris Moger is a world of fantasy straight from the author’s own imagination. Aiden Murphy is a young Wolvean attending university when he gets caught up in events beyond his understanding and control. The four main species of this world - Wolveans, Elveans, Hunaens and Feleals - live together with a thin veneer of peace and civilisation, but dig just a little way down and all the hatred, prejudice and blind ignorance are just below the surface. Clan and species come first – far before unity as inhabitants of this world. A fifth species, the evil Dracons, were supposedly destroyed and wiped out as punishment for their evil, but one still survives. Myeselin dreams of a time when the Zentrin Guard, comprised of one member of each species, ruled and provided balance to the world. She wants to resurrect the Zentrin Guard and Aiden, as the final member of the Zentrin Guard, is caught up in a race against time and against those who would stop this occurring, at all costs.
This is a wild and wonderful fantasy that introduces us to a variety of characters and species, each with their unique talents, but each with their equally obvious flaws and faults. I love the way Kris Moger drew the characters so clearly and gave them each qualities and indeed flaws that were readily identifiable to any reader. Aiden was a wonderful character as we watched him essentially embark on a journey of self-discovery. The author, through the characters, investigates and illuminates the most powerful of all emotions; love, friendship, betrayal, pain, prejudice and universality. The author’s words are, at times, beautiful and poetic, but equally very descriptive, and draw you into this fantastic tale. Aiden, as Taeowolf, shows us how to go beyond the strictures of life and to be the best we can be, flaws and all. A wonderfully compelling tale that I enjoyed very much. I look forward to the next story in this series.
