Book two in the sumptuous Wolves of Llisé trilogy.
As the son of Llisé’s ruler, Devin Roché knows its laws only too well. It’s a land where keeping historical records is forbidden. To do so would mean imprisonment – or death.
Only bards may share the histories of their provinces, but Devin’s quest to learn from them ended in tragedy. His best friend Gaspard has been kidnapped, Master Bards are being murdered and whole communities are disappearing. Clearly someone doesn’t want Devin to know the true history of Llisé.
With his guard Marcus and a wolf pack for protection, Devin sets out to discover the truth. But as terrible secrets come to light, Devin realizes that some knowledge can be deadly.
Praise for Among Wolves:
‘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
