Wolf of the Tesseract by Christopher D. Schmitz is the first book in the Wolves of the Tesseract series. Claire was normal. Her life was ordinary. Suddenly, everything changed and nothing was normal. Now, she's having to run for her life. A strange former classmate re-enters her life and she's convinced he's stalking her except his claims are insane. He claims that he's capable of traveling between various realities while also being able to change his shape and that's not even the biggest shocker that he drops on her. Claire discovers her own magic and a shocking destiny that could provide the gateway for the return of a dangerous being called the Devourer God. As she struggles with her newfound destiny and to actually believe in all this supernatural craziness, she has to stay a step ahead of a sorcerer who intends to use her to bring forth the return of the god unless she can find a powerful weapon to stop him.
The story is written with a humorous and fun tone that brings this world to life, balancing between the gritty chaos of the Prime and Claire's changing reality. Secrets spill out that take Claire's happy simple life to this extraordinary destiny where she's the hero of the story. The inclusion of the Prime world throws friendships upside down and changes everything. The various perspectives weave between the sorcerer and Claire, which creates a tug between them as the quest for power comes to a head. The world comes to life the further Claire is drawn into it, where she discovers unicorns, fire demons, sorcery, and other beings.

Schmitz delivers a world that comes to life with danger, destiny, sorcery, and alternate realities which make Wolf of the Tesseract a great read for those that enjoy fantasy.
