Dorothy Hearst has written a trilogy- The Wolf Chronicles Book 1: Promise of the Wolves Book 2: Secrets of the Wolves Book 3: Spirit of the Wolves

The trilogy is in first person from Kaala-a wolf-'s POV. Kaala is a she-wolf who has the cursed mark of a crescent moon on her chest. She is almost killed after she is born for Kaala's mother broke the 'law' by mating with a outsider wolf and not obtaining permission. Her  sisters and her brother are killed by Ruuqo, and her mother exiled and chased from the back despite her attempts to go to Kaala. But before Ruuqo can kill Kaala, she surprises him by growling, unwittingly delaying her own death just long enough for the great wolves to come and order her to be spared.
