Among Wolves is Nancy K. Wallace’s first book written for adults and it is part of HarperVoyager’s new digital-first line of books. When offered the book for review, what intrigued me most and what captured my attention first, was the description of the protagonist’s profession as an archivist. I have a soft spot for books featuring librarians, booksellers, and archivists, so Devin immediately found himself on my good side. That was what initially drew me to the book, but what really made [...]

Hurrah! A librarian as hero – with all the advantages and drawbacks that involves. And from the outset this tells you that this is a fantasy with a difference. True, all the usual elements are there, but this is a book that consider aspects of another world that are so often ignored – the cultural and intellectual life of the inhabitants and how that can be just as powerful as massed armies in suppressing sections of society. And if you don’t believe that, just look at the real world and c [...]

Knowledge is power!You will underline this sentrence after reading this amazing debut novel which tends to be more a historical fantasy with a French background.Loveable characters, good world building, secrets, amazing story with only a few death. Among wolves does not belong to the world of grim dark fantasy.For me it ended with a cliffhanger.I can't wait to read how the story will continue.

The first thing I should say is that this novel would be an accomplishment even by an established novelist. It is remarkable, then, that this is Ms. Wallace's debut novel.Among Wolves is the first book in the Wolves of Llise series. I was unsure what to expect, but am now eagerly anticipating the rest of the series. This volume chronicles the experiences of Devin Roche, a third-year graduate student at Llise's academy, as he travels to the province of Ombria to begin a remarkable project in whic [...]

No star rating because the author is my favorite aunt and I am hopelessly biased! However, I will put more effort than usual into writing a review. I have to say that at this point in my life I don’t read much of this genre nor do I ever have decent blocks of time to sit and fully enjoy a book, but from about age 12-15 I simply inhaled young adult fantasy for hours at a time. So it just happened that I was home sick with a nasty summer cold on a drizzly and muggy day a few days after this book [...]

An impossible quest, bards and historians at odds, a sweeping political conspiracy, and a twist on the tale of the Beast of Gévaudan, all set in a provincial, historical French setting this book contains pretty much everything I look for in a historical fantasy novel, and the author does not disappoint in bringing them all to life in an entertaining, page-turning read. I stayed up past my bedtime reading this book, and then finished it first thing the next morning. The world-building is fantast [...]

Among Wolves is a delightful fantasy read with a little bit of everything for everyone. Mystery, adventure, a well-crafted world and relatable characters. Devin and his bold and worthwhile goal to visit all the provinces and learn their chronicles are quickly introduced and, immediately, the reader is plunged into an impossible adventure. During his travels Devin meets with great opposition, intrigue and danger. As the story progresses, the stakes get higher and higher, revealing that all is not [...]

Great epic fantasyI was completely engrossed in this great tale of political intrigue, dangerous travels and mystery. The protagonist, Devin was both likable and a literary man after my own heart who is quickly in over his head, tangled in centuries old injustices. Learning but by bit as he did made the take move quickly and I was at the end and wishing for more before I knew it. Really looking forward to the next novel as this one ends in a startling cliffhanger.Highly recommend to any lover of [...]

A welcome and refreshingly different fantasy tale! In Among Wolves Nancy K Wallace presents us with a beautifully subtle blend of political intrigue with just the right amount of gruesome dark deeds! Forget swords and sorcery! Here you’ll find a hero in the guise of a story-wielding librarian, no less. And a twisting tale that points towards knowledge, and not the sword, as the real root of all power. Part one of a three part series it’s brewing up very nicely indeed.

This was an excellent book. I didn't want to put the book down the whole time I was reading it. The book was very well written. I especially enjoyed the suspense of the last couple chapters. Can not wait until the next book. Great work Nancy!

“You are still among wolves, Monsieur Roché, and you aren’t even wise enough to realize it.”I am so torn with this book!!On the one hand I loved some of the ideas it contains. The question of who decides what is true and how a country's history can be shaped by dictating what can be written down – really interesting. Control the past and you control the future. The importance of education for everyone really shines through in this book, not in a preachy way, just a theme I really enjoye [...]

The first book of the Wolves of Llise is a delightful mixture of mystery, adventure, and political intrigue. Our naive hero, Devin, undertaking the unheard of task of trying to memorize the oral histories of all 15 provinces of Llise becomes embroiled in the machinations of the educated elite of the capital, who have a vested interest in maintaining the subjugation of these provinces.In a journey surrounded by foreboding events, untrustworthy people, murders and disappearances, Devin's naivete a [...]

Wallace weaves together a thrilling story with truly fascinating characters. I was familiar with the legend this story is based on and delighted to see the new take on it. This is truly storytelling at it best. I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment to resolve the issues left open. I highly recommend this book to anyone even considering it. If you like fantasy, drama, thrillers, or any kind of story with powerful characters, this is the book for you!

a big NO. it started off with promise, and was written relatively well. two-thirds of the way in though, it was dragging and the story was all over the place. the end left me questioning so many things, and not in a good way. maybe it's just not for me? any way, i am not picking up the next book in the series.

2.5 stars, really. The book had an interesting premise, but neither the writing nor the pacing did it justice. It also needed at least one more round of editing to catch willfully disobedient commas and missing or malformed words.

thebookloversboudoir.wordpresI was given a review copy by the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily reviewed it.I thought Among Wolves was great. I knew I’d enjoy it when I read the blurb. I wasn’t disappointed. Librarian’s rock! I was in love with one once so I have first-hand knowledge of how cool they are. I loved the blend of fantasy and history in this book. Fantasy fiction can be very dark sometimes and this was a refreshing change. Among Wolves is powerful and had me hooked from s [...]
