    Diplomacy of Wolves by Holly Lisle (nessreader)
    nessreader: Both epic quest fantasy, with endangered wolves, rogue mages, culture clash across national boundaries, war, moustache twirling villains and elaborately builtup worlds. The wolf cultures are not the same - Lisle is mostly about dynastic infighting and Huff is interested in pack life and how that would make sentience different.… (more)

Loved it--I don't reread books very often anymore, but I will definitely be rereading this one. ( )

I enjoyed it so much I never wanted it to finish.
If there's a sequel, count me in! ( )

Just re-read again. This is still a great book with an interesting take on were-wolves. Lots, of character and action, evil villain, strange mage craft. The scenery could be better drawn, but serves well enough. ( )

I think this is a promising start to a new series for Tanya Huff. A different take on the shape shifting universe, this story is about a woman who's parents would love to see married to the very upper crust society of shape shifters who marry humans with Mage potential. Unfortunately for Mirial's parents, war intervenes and the Alpa of the Pack is assassinated by the invading army and the Leaders wives are abducted by the Emperor Leopold. Leopold has pronounced werewolves an abomination and has offered a bounty for their pelts. Mirial has flunked out of Mage University and hasn't told anyone yet. She sees the abduction and sets off with the Alpha's brother, Tomas, to rescue the Mage wives, who are involved in a prophecy that Leopold's Soothsayers have reported.
Very exciting action and heartfelt moral dilemmas of the nature of war,

PS: I read it in a day and a half, lol. ( )

Mage craft can work with air, water, earth, metal and healing. The Pack are shapeshifter wolves. They live together. Ayodori is at war with the Empire and the emperor wants the six mages captured for his own purposes. Feels like a stand alone book, but possible for a second. ( )
