Book Description

28 Jun 2011 Spice and Wolf (Book 4)

Lawrence the traveling merchant and his companion, Holo the Wisewolf, head north in search of Holo's home of Yoitsu. Using information obtained in the pagan town of Kumersun, they finally arrive at the small countryside village of Tereo.

A church priest in Tereo is said to know the whereabouts of a monk who specializes in the tales of the pagan pantheon-but when Lawrence visits the church, he's met instead by the unsociable Elsa.

When the village's very existence is threatened, will Lawrence and Holo be able to escape with any information about Yoitsu?

5.0 out of 5 stars i love this series. 4 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
i'm not gonna talk about the plot (you'll have to read to see for yourself), but if you've read and enjoyed the previous three books (or watched the two series of the Animé), you should look into this......especially if you've only seen the Animé as the material in this volume isn't covered by it.

this is a must read series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, Beautiful. 24 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My only qualm is the slowness with which P.O.S. Yen Press is releasing the novels... But since this isn't the author's fault, I won't deduct stars. The translation is perfect and the story beautiful and entrancing. After throwing to the rubbish bin the ridiculous and pretty horrible jacket art cover, I loved my book. Hooked from the first page of the first novel. From the first dialogue bubble of the first square in the manga, and finally from the first scene of the first episode in the Anime. :D

5.0 out of 5 stars The tail of Holo and Lawrence continues... 20 Jun 2011
By Crazy4Pibb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Isuna Hasekura's skill as an author seems to age like fine wine, which is to say that each volume he releases his storytelling improves greatly. I believe after reading this volume it has shown me how skilled he is as an author to pull off previous volume.

By previous statement, what I mean is that volume three gave a sense of urgency and fast-pace, but this time around the story goes at a much slower pace. I believe this is more due to the fact that Holo and Lawrence are getting accustomed to their new understanding of each other's feelings.

The story begins with Lawrence and Holo out on the road travelling to their next destination. Diana from volume 3 has mentioned there was abbot who collected pagan legends from all over the world, and this would be the person they seek out here in volume 4 to find out more about the town of Yoitsu (Holo's home). They arrive in the small town of Tereo to find out more information as to the whereabouts of the abbey, but they are soon confronted with yet another issue that only serves to hold back any progress of Holo finding out what happened to Yoitsu. Will Lawrence and Holo once again outwit their opponent(s), or will fate finally catch up with them?

This volume also confronts an issue that has worried Lawrence since the ending of volume one. One that Lawrence fears the most about facing on his travels with Holo. You'll have to pick up this volume to find out what happens!

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it all in one sitting 21 Jun 2011
By E. Lyles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In this adventure the stakes are less personal for lawrence and holo but they hit close to home all the same.

More is revealed of the disaster that befell Yoitsu, but uncovering this information may cause disaster to befall the town which keeps these secrets. Just as Lawrence and Holo are growing closer together the realiztion that someday thier journey will end forces them to think about parting. Lawrence and Holo must use thier cunning, and business sense to solve other peoples problems this time around... but can doing so help them conquer thier own?

Well I started reading this last night and stayed up late, late, late finishing it.
Lawrence and Holo trade jabs, plots, and banter with Lawrence evidently learning a thing or two and actually managing to get the upperhand on Holo once or twice. I'm so happy to have new Spice and Wolf material!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but lacking in comparison to previous novels 24 Jun 2011
By Buister706 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Isuna Hasekura is a brilliant author, no doubt about it. Spice and Wolf is a great series unlike anything I've ever read.

In this novel, Holo and Lawrence stop in the village of Tereo to inquire about Holo's hometown of Yoitsu. When a rivaling village encounters a crisis, Holo and Lawrence are thrust headfirst into the affair.

Hasekura's use of the language is very accurate, and I can imagine every scene, every word that is written. I can see the story playing out in my head. This time around though, the plot seemed rather lacking, and I felt a bit of anti-climax when I got to the conclusion. The events in this novel just seemed rather droll in comparison to the first three, as they placed the main characters in jeopardy. This time around, the stakes were lowered, but it was still a fine read. I look forward to reading future novels, and I pray that Hasekura will make the series as high-staked as before!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Addition to the Series 1 Aug 2011
By Brandon Harbour - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just wanted to let others know that this is not the same story as what was shown in season 2 of the anime. Having watched both seasons of the anime first, I've been anxiously awaiting "new" content. Not sure what volume part two of season 2 is from, but it is NOT volume 4. Really enjoyed this book, just wish they would release them a little faster.
