The She-Wolf of Kanta by Marlena Frank is the story of 13-year-old Mercy, who works as an apprentice with her father, Solomon, a werewolf hunter. Solomon is very protective of his daughter to the point of being abusive. Every sign she shows of fragility or vulnerability scares him because he knows she is precious prey in Kanta. Werewolves ravage Kanta, and women have been the target of male werewolves, and that’s why hunters capture women to lure the male werewolves. They sell the captured werewolves to Thomas Ferrell, who runs the Farrell Mill. Mercy is the only young female left, and her father fears for her life, but Mercy views her father’s fear as misogyny. Mercy will soon learn for herself the horrors she was protected from by her father.
The She-Wolf of Kanta by Marlena Frank is an absorbing, gripping, and entertaining story. The story is well-written and creative, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Mercy is a feisty and curious character that draws you in as a reader and keeps you interested. Her rebellious nature toward her father’s chauvinistic views makes her character relatable and relevant to our times. I couldn’t predict what would happen next, with the plot maintaining my intrigue throughout. Frank manages to create a powerful representation of women in this book through the vivid descriptions of the female werewolves as being intelligent and defiant. I enjoyed the bold, strong, and courageous female personas in the book, especially Mercy, who is still finding her way. The She-Wolf of Kanta by Marlena Frank is a splendid book.
