'Elemental myth and magic are the beating heart of Yaba Badoe's Wolf Light ... Fans of magical realism and powerful women will find much to admire' OBSERVER.

A leopard dances under the moon.
A wolf prowls.
A red-beaked bird flies free.

Three girls born on the same day in wolf light are bound together to protect the world. They can dazzle or destroy. They have wind-song and fire-fury at their fingertips, but their enemies are everywhere.

From the bleak steppes to the tropical forests of Ghana and the stormy moors of Cornwall, the lands they love are plundered and poisoned. The girls must rally to perfect their skills and prove the strength of sister-magic.

Steeped in elemental myth, Wolf Light is a call to us all to hear the ancient power within us and conserve our heritage.

Yaba's YA debut novel A Jigsaw of Fire and Stars was shortlisted for the 2018 Branford Boase Award and nominated for the 2019 Carnegie Medal.

Review:
'Another dazzling magic-realist adventure, with powerful messages of feminism and environmentalism' The Bookseller.

'I adore Yaba Badoe's writing; it's astonishingly brilliant and always invokes a visceral reaction. She weaves ancient storytelling magic into her words ... Everyone should read Badoe' Sophie Anderson, author of The House of Chicken Legs.

'Elemental myth and magic are the beating heart of Yaba Badoe's Wolf Light ... Badoe's mesmeric prose is the star turn here ... Fans of magical realism and powerful women will find much to admire' Observer.

'This book is told in beautiful, lyrical prose that swept me away ... This book has great diverse representation and shows three girls standing up for what they believe in. This novel doesn't lament what we have lost as much as teach us to stand up and fight for what remains' Midnight Book Girl.

'For older teenage – and indeed adult – readers, Wolf Light is a challenging and unconventional work of literary fantasy that disrupts expectations. At its best, it sketches out potential pathways for a new children's literature that truly reflects our international and interconnected world' BookTrust.
