A decade has passed since the last Howler War and the City of Lupa stands peaceful again under the choking cloud of the Ashfall. The wild hyenas are conquered, the little beasts subdued, and the wolf packs preserve their uneasy oligarchy thanks to the noxious power of imperium. However, new threats fester within the Lupan Wall. There are those who would over

Am I getting soft with all these 5 star reviews this past month or so? No, I've just been exceedingly fortunate.

This was my first anthropomorphic book since I was a kid obsessed with Redwall. Its premise and good reviews intrigued me but I was a bit stand-offish due to my usual suspicion on steampunk settings. I need not have worried. What 'Imperium Lupi' actually contains is some of the best world building I have ever come across. Fictional racial, regional, political, and class tensions come t

Among the best books I’ve read in years

To be honest, I did not pick up this book with great expectations. Even as a fan of anthro characters, I imagined it would be another entertaining if hollow fantasy adventure to pass the time; a forgettable book. I’m very happy to say that I was completely wrong. Imperium Lupi is an incredible book that is definitely worth your time. I usually split any novel into different components to try and analyze it better, so here it is.

Plot: 9/10. I don’t remember

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I started this book. I'd seen the artwork of characters before, but finally decided to give it a read. As I reach the end of this tale I find myself extremely full of information to digest about the world, and will be re-reading many times to make sure I didn't miss a detail. I am also very hungry to see more in this setting, especially to see if Rufus can actually get that expedition and search for the cure. The amount of world-building sprinkled over the ...more

First of all: I am Reaaally a picky reader. Till now NO book I have read , and I read a lot , has ever gotten 5 of 5.
Second: I usually do NOT read book with Anthropomorphic Animal Characters. Okay, I have read a number but most of them were of the same nature and I did not like them. This one here is different. It has not only a giant set of characters . It also has a big number of background and far more stories untold. Which alone is great. I could tell you more but I fear I woudl spoil it. S

Imperium Lupi is one of the best books I've ever read. Probably one-of-a-kind. The view of the story is unique and great. I like how the characters become 'unknown', when it goes to the view of another character, like how Janoah is first offered as 'red wolfess' first, in Olivia's view. And I like how most characters are dynamic, showing that they act as antagonists, but are actually protagonists, or the other way around. That makes the story thrilling, in the view of not knowing who to trust. A

An absolutely intriguing world fueled by a well written and well paced plot, this is without a doubt the most entertaining book I've read in years.

Being a fan of both steampunk and fantasy (though not high fantasy), but generally not one to read books of those genres, the brief description piqued my interest. This led me to discovering the author's supplementary works and drawings online, where I became absolutely engrossed by the world details and character designs. Deciding to give it a shot,

Other reviewers here have gone into details of the premise of this novel and have said pretty much all I wanted to say, so I won't be getting into even more details to avoid spoilers. But I've got to say, this novel is splendid!

Although Imperium Lupi's target audience are fans of anthro fictions, it is an amazingly well written steampunk fantasy adventure that any teenager as well as anyone of older age groups can enjoy.

Although I should mention that readers that aren't used to third person omni
