9780008120726: Among Wolves (Wolves of Llisé, Book 1)

Young Devin Roché is about to graduate as an Archivist from the prestigious Llisé’s University, and there is just one more task he wants to complete – to preserve a complete history of Llisé.

The history of Llisé and its fifteen provinces are a peaceful affair, filled with harmony, resolution and a rich oral tradition of storytelling. Nothing untoward ever happens in this peaceful land. Or does it?

Trainee archivist Devin Roché has just taken his finals at the prestigious Académie. As the sixth son of the ruler of Llisé, his future is his own, and so he embarks on an adventure to memorize stories chronicling the history of each province.

As Devin begins his journey with only his best friend Gaspard and their guardian Marcus, he hears rumors of entire communities suddenly disappearing without a trace and of Master Bards being assassinated in the night.

As the three companions get closer to unearthing the truth behind these mysteries, they can’t help but wonder whether it is their pursuit that has led to them.

But if that is the case, what do Llisé and Devin’s father have to hide?

Review:

‘I had a fantastic time with Among Wolves. I tore through the book wanting to discover what would happen to Devin, Armand, Marcus, Gaspard and the rest. Wallace has created an interesting world to set her story in and the political machinations make for a strong plot ... I very much enjoyed this first instalment in the Wolves of Llisé series and I can’t wait to rejoin our intrepid heroes to find out how their story continues’ A Fantastical Librarian

‘A love letter to the gatherers and protectors of stories and information, Wallace’s Among Wolves is an accomplished political fantasy for a debut author. The slow-burn pacing and twenty-year-old characters make it a good choice for older readers, but Devin’s naiveté will also create an accessible entry into political intrigue for sophisticated younger readers’ VOYA
