The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf - United Kingdom; Walker Books Ltd; 2014 - 400 Pages; Paperback

In a post-apocalyptic world, Ashala Wolf must lead her Tribe in their fight for freedom and justice. But first she must survive an interrogation at the hands of the authorities who are determined to destroy her and everything she stands for. The world has ended, and the society which emerged from the ruins of environmental catastrophe is obsessed with maintaining "the Balance": preserving harmony between humans and nature. But there is one problem. Anyone born with an ability is deemed an Illegal, a threat to the Balance. They are feared, controlled and detained. Ashala Wolf has run away to escape this fate, and lives in the Firstwood with her pack of Illegals, named the Tribe. But when she is captured by Chief Administrator Neville Rose, she must use all her resilience to protect the Tribe. Injured and vulnerable, with her Sleepwalker ability blocked, Ashala is forced to succumb to a machine that will pull secrets from her mind. And beside her is Justin Connor, her betrayer, watching her every move. Will the Tribe survive the interrogation of Ashala Wolf? This is a compelling debut novel, the first in a four-book series, perfect for fans of sci-fi and dystopian fiction. Ashala Wolf is a strong female character with a passionate, driven personality. The Tribe delivers equal parts psychological thriller, thought-provoking ecotopia and a star-crossed love story pinned together with an Indigenous edge.
