All Fictional Wolf Books (NOT WEREWOLVES)

It took me ages to find more than 5 wolf fiction books, so here's this list to help others who also want to read books about wolves.
PLEASE do not add factual books or books only about coyotes, dogs, or foxes. But you may add a book even if a human or some other animal is the most main character, but as long as wolves are a major part of the story.

firewolf Great list. I have 36 books on this list and added almost 30 more to my amazon wish list.


message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

I would add the sequel to Rhamin called Blue Tooth, but it is not on goodreads for some reason.


message 3: by Rean (new)

Rean WOW this is an amazing list I'm going to try and read some of these! :D

Melissa Thank you so much for this list!! I will be adding all of these books to me to-read list!

Wolves are only vaguely mentioned in The Wolves of Willoughby Chase. I was very disappointed by that.

Diane Rapp Hope people who follow this list will check out my new Novella THE ALPHAS, which is the prequel to HOWL OF THE WOLF. Has your dog ever stared into your eyes trying to communicate. Learn what can happen when you finally get the message.

firewolf I recommend Monok's Bones by Scott Murray but can't find it on here to add it


Iris (The Sheep and the Wolf) Who can help me find a specific book? A few years ago I read a book about wolves which was the first (and at that point only) book in a series. It was written from the perspective of the wolves and I remember there being a scene with wolves and ravens. I'm pretty sure it was written by a female author. I looked through this list but none of these titles really ring a bell (doesn't mean it's not in there though). Who can help me?

The only one I can think of that sounds like that is Promise of the Wolves (Wolf Chronicles, #1) by Dorothy Hearst


message 14: by Nick (new)

Nick Can anyone help me ID a specific book? I wouldn't recognize it by title and I think it would be exhausting to click through every title on this list to see descriptions when there are so many helpful people on GR.

I read the book in about sixth grade, borrowed from a local branch of the King County Library System. I lived in the Pacific NorthWest, and there is a huge genre of PNW fantasy/horror/adventure, some of which is only available in this area because it's by local publishers. So it might not be a ubiquitous book, but I'm assuming it is at least on GR and hopefully on this list.

The book was about a boy from Seattle. I believe (but don't remember for sure) that he and his family were supposed to be Asian. The boy has a character trait of "wolfing down" his dinner when he is with his dad in Seattle. The plot involves him going with some mysterious relative to a remote location in the PNW, in a cabin where he sleeps in the loft.

I think there was an element of people being able to transform into wolves. If I remember correctly, Native American bone flutes were an important part of the plot (maybe their music could transform people into wolves) and the main character's aunt or w/e mentions that it is connected to their ancestry because Asian people brought bone flutes to the NW via the Bering Landbridge.

That's about all I remember. I read it when I was going through a preteen wolf obsession and may be getting it confused with a lot of other wolf books I read around the time, many of which might be on this list. Any ideas?

Update: I found it, it's called Blue Wolf by Catherine Credon. It doesn't seem to be on this list, but there's another unrelated book on here called Blue Wolf in a Green Fire (is green fire an Aldo Leopold reference?)


message 16: by Vicki (new)

Vicki People who like this list may be interested in the Alaska-set mystery series by Dana Stabenow. The heroine, Kate Shugak, has a faithful companion named Mutt that is half wolf and half dog. Mutt has significant roles in book #2, A Fatal Thaw, and book #20, Bad Blood.


message 17: by Tiasany (last edited Oct 06, 2020 03:15AM) (new)

Tiasany Can anyone help me find a particular book? I've been looking for it for years, I read it in 2008 or 2009 but I think it was a lot older.
It's fantasy, set in the modern world (I think), about a girl who has a wolf spirit inside of her that could actually jump out of her body and have a separate physical form.

A scene I remember is that she was running a race and another girl shoved her, causing her to fall to the ground and injure her ankle, making it bleed. At this point the wolf kind of "woke up" and as she got up and started running again, she had to fight it from jumping out and biting the girl that pushed her.

That's pretty much all I can remember, I think there were people on the cover but I might be wrong. I'd really love to find it and read it again so I'd appreciate any and all help!


message 18: by Barbara (new)

Barbara Reed I just added The First Wolf Pack: A Dog's Fable to this terrific list. It's a compelling, fun and thought-provoking read. Lots of 5-star reviews on Amazon. I loved all the wolf characters (okay, all but one!) but I especially connected with Tria and her brother Fic.
