    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 me love the book setting the political intrigue and the characters aside for a moment was the belief in the power of knowledge, history and stories that formed the core of the narrative.That belief formed not just the core of the narrative, but informed much of the world building as well It is there in the structure and purpose of the Acad mie, the repository of Llis s history and knowledge, in the intricate system of the provincial Chronicles, which preserve the important events and history that haven t been officially sanctioned by Llis s central government I loved the distinction between written history and oral history ...

    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 consider who, consistently, are the targets of despots throughout history.Indeed, there are uncomfortable times in this book where the real world, our world, reveals itself with bared fangs And that is what makes it such a powerful read This may be a fantasy, and a good one at that with plenty of room to develop further, taking you out of yourself for a few hours, but it also does what all good literature does It holds a mirror up to the real world and lets you see things clearly through all the smoke and obfuscation.In essence this is a quest, one that uncovers political intrigue going back to the very heart of all the things that the main character held to be safe, secure, peaceful, and right The world is well...

    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 which he plans to record the entire history of Llise s 15 provinces The story is complex but two related themes emerged which I found particularly compelling These are that the powerful will hide knowledge to retain power and, when knowledge cannot be hidden, they will ration who has access to it.Devin is the son of Llise s chancellor, is politically well connected, and is traveling into the provinces from Coree Coree is the epitome of wealth, opulence, and political clout and her leaders seek to retain power in the empire by withholding knowledge or casting opposing facts in a negative light It is discomforting how well this parallels a challenge faced by today s...

    No star rating because the author is my favorite aunt and I am hopelessly biased However, I will put 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 came out and happily had a chance to indulge my inner 12 year old and read almost the whole book at one sitting It was a very satisfying escapist read for me an adventure quest sort of story, descriptive writing that I loved, a tiny bit of commentary on the value of education that I quite approved of I actually like my books to have just a little moral to them , and a suspe...

    An impossible quest, bards and historians at odds, a sweeping political conspiracy, and a twist on the tale of the Beast of G vaudan, 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 fantastic, the charac...
