From the Reader’s Perspective
You’ve heard what the publisher says, but what are readers and reviewers saying? Here is a taste of some of the well-deserved praise:
“A mythical story of the ancient origin of wolf packs told second-hand by a modern dog that shares lessons of cooperation and compassion…It’s a good read for fans of personified animal tales, dangerous adventures, and powerful female leads.” —Jada Wilson, Reedsy Discovery
“An original and compelling tale that captures the very heart of the ancestry of “man’s best friend.” I so admired the attention to detail that inspired such a novel. As I was reading The First Wolf Pack, I saw my own dogs in a new light.”–Beth Hoselton, Artist
“J. Daniel Reed’s fantasy tale of The First Wolf Pack draws the reader into an imaginary world of two mighty predators who must decide to survive together or fight to the death...The author has created an epic saga of Gilgamesh, Beowulf, or other Norse legends of old, even faintly reminiscent of Eden and the first humans. We learn how humans and wolves intertwine. Those who love poring over those tales will thoroughly enjoy The First Wolf Pack: A Dog’s Fable.“–Lisa Lickel, Windy City Reviews
“I was completely caught up in the telling (it felt like the re-telling) of this legend, and how a society can learn to live together, cooperate, evolve and prosper. Although on one level, it is an engrossing tale about wolves, there are also many good lessons we can all take to heart. If you’re a dog (or wolf) lover, this book is for you. And if you’re not a dog lover, this tale might just make you one.”
“Great book, written as a fable. The story is told on many levels and makes one reflect on life and what is important. Also, a great book to read with one’s children. Looking forward to more from this writer.”
