Synopsis

Someone is on the hunt for the steam engine plans, and believe that master inventor, Nikolas Klaus, has them. Thought dead by most, and forgotten by many, the quiet grandfather has been living for years in the sleepy mountain town of Minette, keeping his inventions mostly to himself and watching after his granddaughter grow up.

Twelve year old Tee, and her two best friends, Elly and Richy, come together as the heroic Yellow Hoods in the face of life threatening danger. Whose side are the Cochon brothers on, and will they tip the balance? Will Nikolas’ ties to one of the secret society cost him Tee’s life? 

The world is 1800s-eque, with a rich history that is discovered throughout the series. Grounded fairy-tale elements are incorporated in the background, providing additional depth and enrichment for the mature reader.

Called "The Harry Potter of technology" and "A cross between Hunger Games and the Kingkiller Chronicles,” the Amazon best seller series, The Yellow Hoods, is a gripping, whimsical adventure that’s layered for the young and mature adult, making it great for ages 9 to 90.

The Yellow Hoods: Along Came a Wolf (Book 1)
Average rating
4 / 5
Excellent
November 25th, 2014
The Yellow Hoods is a cute romp with a nice twist on a well-loved fairytale. Its main protagonist is Tee, a spunky 12 year old who likes to invent things with her grandpapa and go as fast as she can in her sail cart. Along with her friends, Elly and Richy, she goes on an adventure to save her grandpapa from the dreaded LeLoup, or the Wolf. Along the way, there was some nice character development for Tee. The setting was well realized and the steampunk aspect fit right in believably. The pace was just right and kept the pages turning. And that ending! Definitely makes me want to read the next book!
