I finished this in a day around my job, it was just that good.
It is a beautiful coming of age story, with a new world filled with strong characters that create a place made to keep your imagination swirling in happiness. The world building is incredible, and you meet a young woman who is already stronger than she knows, but who also has this secret life hidden away waiting for the right time to just come out.
The backstories also give you just enough context to make you keep wondering and reading, all into the night. Strong female characters, surrounded by men who support without stifling them, and a villain who keeps things interesting.
I have no regrets reading this one, other than I wish I could go back in time and give it to a younger me.
Very much recommend this one and trust me...get book 2 the same time you get book 1.
I was not prepared for the quality of this writing! The world building is excellent. You can hear the shouts of bargainers in the market stalls. You can feel the cool, quiet of the forest as Ameenah hurries on her way. The characters are well developed with distinct voices. The action is easy to visualize and understand.
This is right up there with N.K. Jemison and Nnendi Okrafor. I look forward to book two eagerly.
I am personally not a fan of long narratives, and had a bit of difficulty staying involved during certain parts of the story. I prefer experiencing a story as opposed to being told a tale, but there is so much nuance to Ameenah and her world, without these explanations and insights, the novel could easily have become unwieldy. Thankfully, the wonderful descriptions and interesting characters are brought in often enough to maintain my attention. When action does occur, it comes fast and the frenzy is edge-of-seat reading.
The Wolf Queen’s world could be ours. The clash of powers and the reluctance of good people to act. Like most of us, Ameenah would prefer a simple life. Like the best heroes, forced into the fight, she blossoms. Her enemies are powerful and cruel. Her allies are faithful and flawed. And when she discovers her abilities, we journey from reality to fantasy in a totally believable leap of faith.
I wish we could view Ameenah through the eyes of more characters. Her development is continual and believable, but lacks some depth. Life changes her. Becoming something more than human changes her. Remaining true to her people and her duties anchors her. I want to know more.
A strong female protagonist surviving an exotic world filled with conflict that ebbs and grows over time. Love lost and found. Alliances built. A kingdom defended. Magic weaved throughout the tapestry without overpowering human nature.
The Wolf Queen is easily five stars. The things I would prefer did not prevent me from enjoying every bit of the read. It has enough traditional fantasy elements for the die-hard, and more than enough unique twists for the romantic-history fan.
She doesn’t know of her powers but is discovering that there is more to her and the world she lives in than what meets the eye. This journey will truly test her and lead her to a path of discovery and power. I can’t wait to see what Ameenah & the host of characters will encounter and how she will overcome with their help the obstacles in her way. Very much looking forward to book 2. I hope the author is writing now as I type this review.
