Character Role Analysis

Miyax a.k.a. Julie

Maybe it's the fact that the first word of the novel is Miyax. Or maybe it's the fact that in every section, she's the star of the show. But we definitely know Miyax is our protagonist. We root for her survival, we feel her joy and sadness, and we love the wolves just as much as she does – actually, because she does. She's our girl, our heroine, our Miyax.
