About this ebook

The first book in a thrilling fantasy trilogy starring one of the animal kingdom's most hunted heroes. Foxcraft is full of excitement and heart, and a touch of magic.

Isla and her brother are two young foxes living just outside the lands of the furless -- humans. The life of a fox is filled with dangers, but Isla has begun to learn mysterious skills meant to help her survive. Then the unthinkable happens. Returning to her den, Isla finds it set ablaze and surrounded by strange foxes, and her family is nowhere in sight. Forced to flee, she escapes into the cold, gray world of the furless. Now Isla must navigate this bewildering and deadly terrain, all while being hunted by a ruthless enemy. In order to survive, she will need to master the ancient arts of her kind -- magical gifts of cunning known only to foxes. She must unravel the secrets of foxcraft.

So unique so different all of it was awesome! At first when i saw the book the cover made me like it them I started reading what it was about and i was shocked at the giant adventure that was only in 200 something pages, I am mad that it ended so quickly, as I read it fast cause I couldn't take my eyes off it!

I'm no kid but I still love these type of stories! Like erin hunter this writer has grabbed my attention and I can't wait for more. I have read the first book and I'm half way past the second. Now with a few weeks left for the third to be released I wish it would be sooner. And last but not least I hope there will be more in the future.

I love this book so much. I chose this book for a book report, i started reading this book ago but never finished until yesterday, because I kept holding it back. So it took me 3 more days non stop. Thanks for making this awesome book. I am going to do the 2 Foxcraft for my next book report. 😂😂😂
