Editorial Reviews

Review

“Gritty and engrossing, I definitely want Hob on my side when the revolution comes.”
– Mur Lafferty, John W Campbell Award-winning author of The Shambling Guide to New York City

“It has a wonderful weird west vibe and some of the phrasing is simply delicious. Hob is a wonderful character to follow – hers is a solid journey and I got a bit choked up when Hob stood up for what she wanted. Alex crafts a host of fascinating characters here – the Weathermen, the Bone Collector – and I reckon you’re going to love their adventures.”
– E Catherine Tobler, author of the Folley & Mallory Adventures

“Take a dash of Dune, a bit of Fury Road, and a whole lot of badass female characters and you’ve got Hunger Makes the Wolf – a really, really bloody awesome debut from Alex Wells.”
– Emma Maree Urquhart, author of Dragon Tamers

“This thing drips with tension – between characters, within the story itself – that makes it impossible to put down. I needed to know what would happen next, what would Hob do. Tanegawa’s World may be a desolate and uninviting terrain, but it provides fertile ground for the characters,who truly blossom on the page.”
– Shana DuBois for B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

“It’s a science fiction Western thriller, and it is great, and I’m really, intensely, eagerly looking forward to the sequel. This is the sort of thing I really like. UP WITH THIS SORT OF THING.”
– Liz Bourke, for Tor.com

“The story is a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat space opera, tied together with the characters’ struggles, adventures, and mishaps. If you’ve ever thought, “You know what Dune needed more of? More magic and a biker gang!” then this book was written for you.”
– The Canary Review

“I was expecting a fun, quick space adventure read, but this story is so much more than that.”
– Helen Lindley

“This one definitely makes it into my ‘Highly Recommended’ stack. I’d pick this one up for sure if you’re looking for a fun action romp with some unique and amazing female characters.”
– All Booked Up Blog

“I’m always excited when I find a new book that makes me stay up all night reading because I simply can’t put it down. I’m doubly excited when that book is the first in a brand new series. Hunger Makes the Wolf is both those things. Needless to say that I’m absolutely in love.” 5/5*
– Elena Linville’s Tower of Winds

“This is a very cool novel. Hunger Makes the Wolf is a fun, fast, gripping read.”
– The Irresponsible Reader

Hunger Makes the Wolf is an entrancing addition to any science-fiction lover’s collection. The clever prose alone is enough to grab your attention, but what really makes this novel shine is how immersive it is. The worldbuilding is meticulous, the characters are multifaceted and original, and the present themes are timely and inspiring.”
– RT Book Reviews

“I have to commend Alex Wells, this book was a genuine pleasure. Just goes to prove, irrespective of genre, you can’t go wrong with well-rounded characters and a plot that zips along at a good pace.”
– The Eloquent Page

“Grab any science fiction book and you’ll see they all have the exact same thing in common: the plots and devices of the stories are all predictable and never stray out of bounds. They hardly even push the envelope and, with great joy, I’m glad the author never got that memo. Here’s why: Wells adds magic to the mix. It’s a stroke of genius I’ve been waiting for Peter F Hamilton or Alastair Reynolds to pull off to no avail.”
– The Splattergeist

“It’s a well-conceived, smartly plotted, enthusiastically fast-paced sci-fi adventure with some cool ideas and a couple of excellent lead characters who’ve got plenty growing still to do in future books.”
– SF Bluestocking

“This is one gem of a story you shouldn’t miss out on.”
– Smorgasbord Fantasia

“I will be picking up future volumes.”
– James Nicoll Reviews

“Sharp, honed, and brilliant.”
– Skiffy & Fanty

“Obvious parallels to Frank Herbert’s Dune will draw readers into this action-packed tale of tyranny and rebellion, but Wells’s character developments take the plot in new directions, leaving the possibility of a sequel.”
– Library Journal

Hunger Makes the Wolf is a great bit of sci-fi with a dash of fantasy, all cleverly disguised as a brutal, kick-ass western. I want more!”
– Michael Patrick Hicks

“Angry Robot has really upped its game lately; this is one of their best recent releases. Strong debut and I hope for a sequel to start answering a few more of my questions.”
– Fantasy Review Barn

“Action, atmosphere, great characterisation, pretty damn cool worldbuilding. And explosions. I enjoyed the hell out of Hunger Makes the Wolf. Give me more soon, please.”
– Liz Bourke for Locus

Hunger Makes The Wolf can perhaps best be described in musical terms: imagine the powerful, punchy, awesome death’n’roll of latter-day Satyricon married to the lyrical sensibilities of Billy Bragg in his most pro-trade union and leftist moments. Alex Wells managed to write a 400 page book with that kind of power and political urgency and heart, and I am so very much hoping for a sequel.”
– Intellectus Speculativus

“It’s good, old fashioned, new fangled entertainment that goes down easy and delivers enough kick to make you want to come back for more.”
– Lit Stack

“The story gets tighter as it progresses and the novel stakes out its territory as its own. Really enjoyable.”
– Camestros Felapton

“Wells’ characters are realistic if hard-bitten, and the whole thing left me waiting for the sequel. Highly recommended.”
– Private Mars Rocket

Hunger Makes the Wolf by Alex Wells is as tasty as a Saturday morning cartoon.”
– Out of that World

“A kick-ass science fiction story with a great world and two female leads who are both strong in their own way.”
– The Illustrated Page

“I enjoyed this action adventure thoroughly.”
– Deborah J Ross

“Wells excels at creating memorable characters and a memorable planet for them to inhabit. They have a tough, punchy prose style that lends itself to action.”
– The 1000 Year Plan
