Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance (Book Review)

Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance (Book Review)

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.


I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
