The Emperor’s Wolves (The Wolves of Elantra Book 1)
More than two decades have passed since the murders of the Tha’alani, a feared race of people with the ability to read minds. The case is cold, abandoned. Until, that is, Severn Handred is recruited into the Imperial Wolves, the emperor’s executioners. Or, as the people call them, assassins. Severn is teamed with another Wolf to hunt, no matter where the investigation takes them. No matter how dangerous it gets.
Despite having not read the other books in this series, I had only a little trouble understanding the world and characters. The “mystery” element isn’t the main focus, it’s more about the invention. The book is dialogue heavy, with paragraphs of info dumps at times, and quite often I got confused as to who was talking. I had to read slowly and reread frequently, but once I got into the story, I really enjoyed it. Although many characters lacked depth, they all had different backstories and personalities, and I found that I loved most of them.
