Blog Tour: Yellow Hoods Series by Adam Dreece

Along Came a Wolf is the debut book of the highly rated emergent Steampunk series, The Yellow Hoods. This young adult series is layered for the mature reader. It incorporates some elements of fairy-tale, inspired by the notion of what if the rhymes and tales we know were based on real events, in this world. 


Seeds of a technological revolution have started to sprout in this old world, about to change it forever. A secret society, long thought crushed, makes its first move against its unsuspecting, benevolent opponent. 

Master inventor Nikolas Klaus has seen some of this coming, and has quietly broken the rule of keeping his secret society's knowledge and skills from the younger generations. He knows that the day will come when they will be needed, but has underestimated how soon. 

Tee, Elly, and Richy shed their innocence and are forced to stand as the Yellow Hoods to overcome life- threatening dangers unleashed as secrets of Nikolas' past are revealed. 

Will Nikolas' secrets cost him the life of his granddaughter? Are his efforts too little, too late? 

Review quotes: 
"A gripping read. Lots of fun for kids and adults both. A wonderful mixture of action, mystery, and whimsy that leaves an impression on you long after you've turned the last page." 

"I was always envious of people who could get drawn into a good book. Now, I am one of those people." 

"This book is well written and the character development is phenomenal. I'm not just talking about the main characters here—I mean ALL of them."


In an act of desperation, inventor Maxwell Watt sends his teenage son to Nikolas Klaus with the secret plans for his steam engine. The Fare, a nefarious secret society, learns of the game-changing invention and accelerate their timeline to neutralize Klaus and reclaim control over the kingdoms. 

While wars spark to the south, children in Mineau have started to go missing—again. Captain Archambault suspects the return of the Ginger Lady. With the help of the Yellow Hoods and their friends, the search is on to find the missing children before it is too late. 

What is the secret that ties the Yellow Hoods to the Ginger Lady? Who are the Red Hoods really? 

Enjoy this darker, edgier instalment in this exciting Emergent Steampunk adventure series that is laced with elements of fairy-tale that gives it depth. A young adult series that is layered for the mature reader. 

“A beautifully spun tale in a unique and captivating world.”


Adam Dreece wrote short stories for friends and family, for 25 years. After becoming seriously ill, he decided to make some changes, including never missing a night of reading stories to his kids again because of work, and going after his dream of being an author.
He spent three years writing a memoir about his life up to and through that event. With that out of the way, he felt free and able to start writing fiction again. With a nudge from his daughter, he wrote Along Came a Wolf and created The Yellow Hoods series.
Adam spends time with his kids, his wife and helping others with their writing online. He's also a public speaker and mentor. He lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
