The Red Wolf Conspiracy

4 of 5 stars false


The Red Wolf Conspiracy - the first book of a trilogy destined to take its place on my all time favorite shelve:)

Robert V. S. Redick has been compared to Philip Pullman, George R. R. Martin, and China Miéville, among others and indeed if you liked them - you will like him as well!
Sort synopsis:
Many years after a terrible war that shook empires, a 600-year-old ship sails for enemy lands and must deal with deadly assassins, treacherous mermaids, and monstrous slavers.
Talking animals,magic gifts,girl to rescue of an unwanted marriage,war to be stopped,race of tiny people,boy who understands all languages,dancing instructor who teaches fighting lessons,exotic foreign evil stepmother,a mystery,a missing mother and sister,a sorcerer from an other dimension ,a voyage over the see,pretty mermaids......and everything wrapped up in beautiful storytelling.... what is here not to like? The atmosphere of the book mostly reminds me of Philip Pullmans Golden Compass ,so if you read the book or saw the movie you'll know what you can expect-a grand adventure with amazing characters.I enjoyed it very much and looking forward to read the next part.
