In her breakthrough novel, Ruth Emmie Lang weaves a tale of loss and love, magic and realism, horned pigs and a boy raised by wolves. Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance is the modern day fairytale of a man named Weylyn Grey told by the people whose lives were touched by the boy raised by wolves who could control the weather and do so much more. The perspective of the novel switches between a host of characters, young and old, to tell the life story of a peculiar man in a way that stays fresh and interesting.
I was drawn to the book by the amazing cover art and the premise of the novel. Weylyn Grey’s infectious personality and the charm of the story had me spellbound and reading late into the night.
