I wasn't so convinced that his wolf was the reason he could hear the 
gods.  Others don't need a spirit to hear the gods speak to them, and 
others with spirit animals don't hear the gods.  Ingrey was the tool 
chosen by the Son of Autumn to right a vast wrong (separation of 
thousands from the gods), just as elsewhen, Cazaril and Ista were 
chosen by the gods to right serious wrongs.  Although we don't know 
exactly, the Daughter's comment to Caz about how many were set on the 
same path that he had taken might also be true in the case Ingrey was 
finally able to handle.  We don't know how many others were given a 
chance to right that wrong, and failed somehow.
