The red wolf conspiracy
Robert V. S. Redick
Adult Fiction REDICK

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Insane god-kings, miniature warriors and sentient animals fight over a powerful ancient artifact in Redick's dramatic, complex debut. The Mzithrin and Arquali Empires have been locked in a 40-year cold war over the resources and riches of the Crownless Lands on their common frontier. Now the Chathrand, a floating city built as much by sorcerer as shipwright, bears young Thasha, an unwilling bride to an enemy prince. No one seems sure whether this is a sincere attempt to bind the two empires together in peace or merely a gambit in their political games. The tense atmosphere soon erupts as various factions struggle to find and control the myth-wrapped Red Wolf. Both adult and young adult readers will find much to enjoy in this tale of sea-faring and bloody diplomacy. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

As the city-sized ship Chathrand sets sail on a peacemaking mission to an enemy land, its passengers and crew reflect their world's hopes and fears. A reluctant bride-to-be, a young sailor from a family accused of treason, a race of tiny humanlike stowaways, and a magical rat find their fortunes tossed to the fates as the ship is besieged by assassins, slavers, and other treacherous creatures desperate to unlock the secret of the artifact known as the Red Wolf. Redick's debut presents a unique setting for an epic fantasy and includes memorable characters. With comparisons to Geroge R.R. Martin and Philip Pullman, this is highly recommended for all fantasy collections. [Library marketing.] (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
