If you're interested, here's the description of the book:
Peace in Raulyn is threatened when a jealous SkyPack wolf finds the elusive Amulet of Vortrix, bestowing him with divine and destructive powers. The only hope for its wolf inhabitants? An albino wolf named Zenith, ostracized by his pack from the moment he was born. All he wants is to blend in - but when darkness begins to conquer the land, Zenith has no choice but to take on a monumental responsibility.

This section is just an all around info section about the world of Raulyn and some aspects of it that aren't fully explained in the book - if you have questions, feel free to ask them!
~ Packs ~
There are four packs in Raulyn - ForestPack, WaterPack, MoonPack, and SkyPack. Each pack has its own expanse of territory. ForestPack resides in the Great Woods in the East. WaterPack dwells around the Caelios Lagoon in the South. MoonPack's territory is located West, in the Dark Moorlands. Lastly, Skypack resides in the Wolf's Jaw mountains to the Northeast. There are also Loners - wolves who chose to leave their packs and live by themselves. They don't have any specific territory. Outcasts are wolves that were banished from their packs - they live in the savage desert of the Outlands, far to the North.
The packs are divided based on what they symbolize. ForestPack wolves embody courage, strength, and loyalty. WaterPack wolves are characterized by their compassion, humility, and honesty. MoonPack wolves often show intelligence, patience, and observation. Finally, SkyPack wolves symbolize wisdom, power, and determination.
~ Ranks ~
The highest rank in a pack is the Alpha. If the Alpha has a mate, then the male of the pair will usually stand for both in pack meetings. However, both the Alphas make decisions about their pack together.
The second highest rank is that of the Betas. Of the Betas, there is the Head Beta, the Second in Command, and the rest of the Betas. If the Alpha has no heir, then the Head Beta will take their place when the time comes (unless the Alpha chooses a different heir). If the Head Beta either dies or gives up their rank, the Second in Command will take their place. This same system of Head and Second in Command goes for the other two secondary ranks in the pack - Healers and Trackers.
When a wolf is carrying pups, she becomes a Mother. Once her pups grow old enough to advance to their next rank, Tenderpaws, the Mother goes by whatever her previous rank was (e.g. Beta, Tracker, or Healer).
Tenderpaws are sorted by the Alpha into the role best suited for them - either a Betapaw, Healerpaw, or Trackerpaw. Once a Tenderpaw's training is finished, they take part in a test to see if they are fit to advance to their next rank.
Usually, the Head of whatever role a Tenderpaw is placed in will have the responsibility of teaching. In the event that the Head is unavailable, a different wolf will take their place.
When a wolf becomes too old to hunt, fight, or work, they are considered an Old One. They are the carriers of the ancient stories of Raulyn.
At any point, a wolf can choose to leave the pack and become a Loner. However, if said wolf decides to come back to the pack, regardless of their previous rank, they will be considered an Omega. An Omega can only advance ranks by proving themselves worthy to the Alpha.
~ Languages ~
There are (so far) three languages used in Raulyn. There is the common language, Ancient Lupine, and Dark Speech. Ancient Lupine is used in chants and ceremonies, and Dark Speech is only used by the most ancient and evil creatures in all of Raulyn.
