Along Came a Wolf (The Yellow Hoods #1)

In his debut novel, Dreece mixes clever fairy-tale references… with intriguing contraptions, appealing characters, snide villains, humor, and an exciting story.” – Kirkus Reviews

Finalist for Independent Author Network’s Book of the Year 2015 in Teen/Young Adult

2015 IAN Book of the Year Awards FINALISTDescription:

A wave of dizziness hit twelve-year-old Tee as she starred down the barrel of the flintlock pistol. “Not feeling so brave now,” said the agent with a dangerous smirk. Someone was convinced her grandfather, the brilliant inventor Nikolas Klaus, had plans for the world’s first steam engine, and the agent was there to collect them. Tee knew nothing of the plans, and even less about her family’s ties to a secret society called the Tub (lead by a butcher, a baker and a candle stick maker).

Readers Fav - 5 Stars Flat - Hi ResWelcome to a world on the verge of a steampunk industrial revolution, where fairy tales and rhymes are real events and people. Book 1 – Along Came a Wolf is the seemingly innocent beginning to The Yellow Hoods, a series that intensifies (like Harry Potter) as it goes.

The Yellow Hoods books 1 & 2 were finalists for Book of the Year in Teen/Young Adult and Fantasy – Independent Authors Network’s 2015.
