This is one of those kind of books that requires you to suspend your disbelief, but if you can deal with magical realism, you’ll find it very enjoyable.
Weylyn Grey is an exceptional boy, who when orphaned, was raised by wolves. But apparently he was out of the ordinary before that. He is different, and doesn’t fit in; other unusual things go on too. We get to know Weylyn through the people who cross paths with him, following him through multiple decades. It is a bit of a love story too.
This is a light, fun, well written book, with a sweet, innocent, beguiling main character you will not soon forget. Want an escape read for this summer that is neither banal, predictable, or mindless? This one could do quite nicely, as it did for me. I was glad to have read Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance, and give this debut novel four stars.
