Running with the Wolves is a highly readable introduction to J.E Reed’s Chronopoint Chronicles. Although there are moments where Kiuno makes stereotypical choices by following her heart as opposed to choosing a wiser course of action, J.E Reed uses this to develop internal conflict in Kiuno. This ultimately turns her into a more complex and relatable character, even if she isn’t as likeable as secondary characters like Elliot and Kikyu. Reed introduces a subtle commentary on human nature through the actions of desperate people stuck inside Chronopoint as well as those who take advantage of the lack of law and order to behave despicably.
