    Nancy K Wallace’s The Wolves of Llisé series has gained a resonance with current affairs that Wallace perhaps hadn’t expected at the time when she started the story Its central themes — showing that information is power misinformation is a tool and truth is malleable — are eerily relevant today Wallace also shows that there is a subversive power to storytelling one we should cherish and not fear to wield With Before Winter Wallace brings this trilogy the previous books were Among Wolves and Grim Tidings to a close and she does so with panacheWe return to the story after a whopper of a cliffhanger at the end of the last book and much of the beginning of the story deals with the fall out of that event The bonds that were forged over the previous books are shattered and rebuilding lost trust is hard but we see how Marcus works to regain Devin’s The pervading sense of distrust from the last book where Devin truly didn’t know who he could trust slowly abates in this one and by the final third the true nature of the antagonists has crystallisedBefore Winter is the book in which Devin and Gaspard truly grow into young men I really liked how Wallace developed both of them which their growth not being a straight line but one with stops and starts and sometimes especially for Gaspard doubling back on itself Because we are in Devin’s head we see his growth from within while we can only guess at Gaspard’s inner life from Devin’s observations and the conversations he has with Gaspard Central to both of their turmoil is their relationship to their father and how this blood bond shapes their identity and perhaps their future In that sense Gaspard’s journey is the harder one because it is hard to admit even if only to yourself that your family is less than honourable and even harder to fight free from thatAll of that is of course complicated by the discoveries Devin makes about the history of Llisé and the origins of the current political unrest The depth of its roots and their connection to Gaspard’s family are surprising We also learn about the history of Llisé and even discover the origin story of the country and the secrets of both the Chastel and Aucoin family The party travel via underground tunnels kept safe by the Church but they also encounter somewhat supernatural elements that assist them on their way I liked the understated magical elements of the world building It's not showy and flashy but it is unmistakable and I really enjoyed itI missed the female protagonists a bit with Madama Aucoin and Angeliue being of screen for a lot of the book though they do play large roles at critical points in the narrative Devin discovers that his ties to Madame Aucoin and Angeliue are closer than he suspected and in the original plan to rescue Devin’s father Angeliue will play a central role in defeating the usurper Forneaux And of course there is the lost Jeanette I liked how Wallace resolved that situation though I’d rather suspected it all along and as such it wasn’t really a surprise However while in the first book I didn’t really feel the romance this time I certainly did Still I would have liked to have seen of the ladies and have them take a active roleIn all Before Winter was a very satisfying ending to a wonderful series Wallace resolves the main mystery in the series tying off loose ends but with Devin’s new position there is an opening for far adventures in Llisé I really hope she’ll get to tell them because I’d love to see of the characters of Llisé and its surrounding countries If you haven’t yet picked up this series I highly recommend you do so because The Wolves of Llisé deserves to be widely read and talked aboutThis book was provided for review by the publisher

    Since the first book of the series The Wolves of Lislé I have been drawn irresistibly into these stories Nancy K Wallace is a literary chef blending fantasy adventure and archival history into a saga which breeches deep and sometimes difficult subjects in a world that fully comes to life in these pagesHidden plots shadow governments misty forests and mysterious creatures that change shape in the night are woven through this dangerous and unexpected journey Devin a serious student of the Archives at the Académie in Coreé takes us with him as he leaves his safe and sheltered home and begins a uest that will change him from a hesitant dreaming boy into a determined manHaving left poor Devin for dead at the end of Grim Tidings I was relieved to find him struggling back to life in Before Winter But could he ever trust his bodyguard Marcus again After all the man shot him in the head But not everything is what it seems in this often chilling tale Myth seems at times to mix with realityis the hired assassin who follows the travelers an immortal who cannot be killed And exactly who is the little grey wolf who clings to Devin’s side But as Devin and his companions persist in their search for the truth they discover that many of the stories they had come to accept as facts of history were merely lies meant to keep the true seat of power in evil handsOne of the things I liked best about the characters in Before Winter is that they are flawed and altogether human Gaspard Devin’s sometimes dubious friend drinks too much and reacts without thinking He sulks he blames he drags his feetbut as the challenges comes to threaten the lives of the people he loves there is something in him that toughens to rise to the challenge Another favorite of mine is Madame Aucoin a seemingly frail old woman who turns out to have an unexpected connection to Devin along with a hidden power that he may shareSome of the subjects of the book are painful – loved ones are lost trust is betrayed physical hardship is endured But at the center of the story runs a solid vein of purpose – to save Devin’s father and restore him as the High Chancellor of Lislé to preserve the Chronicles and to bring opportunity and education to the people of the provincesWill Devin find happiness with his true love Have the tentacles of the shadow government truly been expunged from the land As Before Winter ends Master Bard Armand prepares to perform a new story he wrote for Omria’s Chronicles If the reuest of one reader can be heard at Harper Voyager I herein make this plea keep going Let the Chronicles continue I’m putting my advance order in now
