All three stories are best for ages nine to fourteen, though some children on the younger side of the age range may find some aspects of the adventures too disturbing:
WOLF STORM (slight spoiler): There is an animal death at the end of the book. It is not one of the main animal characters, but was added in the book to illustrate the point that wolves are very territorial and will often attack and kill other wolves who venture into their territory.
WOLF RIDGE (spoiler): This story contains some violence against animals. A wolf is shot and killed in front of the main characters. There are scenes that make it clear wolves have killed and eaten goats. There are criminals in the story who threaten the main characters.
WILDFIRE RUN (spoiler): A Secret Service agent dies while trying to save the main character. A helicopter crashes and burns, and though the main characters don't know who was in the helicopter, it's clear none of the occupants could have survived.
