The Kingdom of Dadria: A Lamb Amongst Wolves by N. J. Hanson is a fantasy novel. Prince Sedric has undertaken the journey to Dadria to offer for Princess Endelynn, King Cassius’ only daughter and sole heir. When her father is killed, Princess Endelynn must take the throne and secure the future of her kingdom by marrying a noble prince. All is set but is ruined when she is betrayed and kidnapped by rogue elements in her kingdom before her wedding. Help comes in the form of Shunka, a young warrior of the Wolf Tribe. Their people have never gotten along since the time the pale ones invaded the land. Can two people from two different races that have always been enemies find a middle ground.

N. J. Hanson gives an interesting tale about the effects of racial divides and long-held grudges. What happens when your enemy isn’t what you’ve been told they are? This is a story of change and growing up. Young people who like forbidden love-themed novels will enjoy this one. I loved the magical creatures of Dadria. They are unique in many ways and also echo in some aspects the lives of the native Americans. The Kingdom of Dadria also has other sub-plots that add to the complexity of the story. With the King of Kahren’s political maneuvering, who is to know the final outcome? One thing is for sure, it will be a thrilling ride all the way to the end. I will look forward to the next installment as this world surely has more adventure to offer.
