The Wolf Queen of Japan is a work of fiction in the dystopian and futuristic fantasy sub-genres and was penned by author Harrison Ware. Asking intrinsic and primal questions about what it is that separates the supposedly elevated humans from predatory animals, this intelligent and highly atmospheric read is set in a future Japan where a tyrannical empire has taken up rule. Our central protagonist is Felicity, raised by wolves and every inch as vicious as them, who finds her sanctuary uprooted when Imperial forces discover her. She decides to team up with a band of vigilante strangers in order to bring down the wider network of corruption and control, with some very violent consequences.

As a fan of many sci-fi, fantasy, and horror works of anime, I was right at home in this sleek, stylish, and sometimes a little bizarre work of fiction. Fans of the likes of Death Note, Black Butler, and Tokyo Ghoul will click into author Harrison Ware’s style at once, getting to know Felicity and her affinity to the vicious wolves that have raised her and primed her for battle. One of the things I found particularly unique about this work was the dialogue, which characterizes the main cast and puts them into their ‘types’ from the off, although they do also have space to develop and surprise us as the plot progresses. With all the sleek, amusing, and stylistic touches in place, I would highly recommend The Wolf Queen of Japan to anime/manga and fantasy fans looking to step outside their comfort zone with an exciting and unique read.
