The Wolf Pack book 1 of The Wolves of Vimar series

All Carthinal wants is admission to the ranks of the mages. Traveling from Bluehaven to Hambara, where his rite of passage is to take place, he doesn’t expect to end up on a quest to find the long-lost sword of the legendary King Sauvern. With strangers he meets on his journey, Carthinal sets out on the seemingly impossible quest. Followed by Randa, the snooty aristocratic daughter of the Duke of Hambara, and the young runaway thief Thad, Carthinal and his companions face tragedy and danger. Watched by the gods and an implacable foe, they will have to accept help from the least likely sources and face their innermost fears. As the fate of their world hangs in the balance, they realize that this is more than an adventure. This quest will change them all.

This book came from a Dungeons and Dragons scenario I wrote for my D & D club at the school where I worked. I had been buying scenarios, then I thought I could write one myself. I wrote one from which this series has emerged.

I played Dragonlance, both as a player and a DM, and when I discovered that Weiss and Hickman had turned it into a series, I thought, ‘Why not?’ Thus The Wolves of Vimar series was born.

I only intended it to be one book, but it sort of grew into what will eventually be a five-book series. I’m unsure that my players will recognise it now, although some things are the same, such as searching for Sauvern’s Sword (Book 1) and the name of the antagonist.


Discerning Reader

5.0 out of 5 stars A solidly done, and crafted fantasy novel.

Verified Purchase

“The Wolf Pack” is an original and well crafted fantasy novel. If you like novels like the “Earthsea Saga” by Ursula Le Guin or “When the Heavens Fall” by Marc Turner then I suggest that you may well enjoy “The Wolf Pack.” British style and spellings throughout. Not really a negative, just a difference to be noted.

I found the characters well developed, and complex (in a good way).

The plot is unique and unusual. It is not easy to explain, but does unfold nicely as one reads through the book. I am trying to avoid spoilers, so I do not want to give too much away.

Dialogue is well written and each character has his or her own voice

      1. I use two review sources where for every review I write for a book in the pool, I get a review in return. The reviews aren’t reciprocal so they’re Amazon approved. One is the Review Group on Goodreads. The other is BookRoar. On GR you don’t get to choose the book, so I tend to go with Bookroar more often. You get to choose there. I try to squeeze a couple of books in per month, but with BookRoar you could read one a day if you wanted to. πŸ™‚ Worth checking out. πŸ˜€

  1. Congratulations on the great Amazon reviews. Someday I may try an Urban Fantasy story with elements of traditional fantasy mixed in with modern or near future settings alternating with the fantasy settings. My very first serious set of (3) books, The Rio Grande Parallax Series did something like that but with more “rural” settings. I guess you could call it Contemporary Rural Fantasy! Hah-Hah!! I remember I sponsored a group of D & D boys and became fascinated with the story lines they created but I was too busy to pursue the games with them. Now I wish I did. May your series continue to develop! RJ πŸ˜‰
