Red Wolf Conspiracy

The Red Wolf Conspiracy - Robert V.S. Redick Reviewed for the LA Times:The quest narrative is as old as storytelling and -- whether written, spoken or filmed -- is one of the most satisfying forms of entertainment. However, its popularity means it is incrementally more difficult to carry off with any convincing air of freshness and vitality. In recent years few series fantasies (the most common storytelling style in the fantasy genre) have managed. Daniel Abraham's "The Long Price Quartet" (which concludes this summer), Ysabeau Wilce's Flora Segunda series and Paul Park's Roumanian books come to mind. With the publication of his invigorating debut, "The Red Wolf Conspiracy," Robert V.S. Redick's "The Voyage of the Chathrand" can be added to that short list.http://www.latimes.com/features/books/la-et-book5-2009jun05,0,4766900.story
