About the Author

After being seriously ill, Adam decided to make some changes, including never missing a night of reading stories to his kids again because of work, and starting down that road to being an author that he always wanted.

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.

He lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with his awesome wife and amazing kids.

Reviewed by Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorite BreadCrumb Trail (The Yellow Hoods #2) by Adam Dreece is a young adult fantasy that incorporates fairy tales into the mix. Steam engines arrive for the first time in a world where fairy tales are actual world events. A secret society, the Fare, decides to move in, too. Meanwhile, three members of the Yellow Hoods - Tee, Elly and Richy - are entangled in a secret society and the mysterious return of the Ginger Lady. When a number of kids get lost in the woods, the Yellow Hoods help search for them. What they don't know is that Maxwell Watt, a friend of the amazing inventor Nikolas Klaus, asks his son to smuggle and deliver something very important to his friend and fellow inventor, Nikolas. This item has such importance that there are many people who don't want the item delivered and will do anything to stop it. BreadCrumb Trail is a fun young adult story that uses humor as well as action to create an incredible adventure tale. There are many characters in this story and they all have their own little arcing story. I enjoyed the Yellow Hoods and had fun following them on their adventures. Their humor was a nice addition to the story and I looked forward to reading about their escapades. I also enjoyed the most mysterious aspects of this story, especially the item that Maxwell's son was transporting. The dangerous elements of this part of the story were very well written.

This is the second book of Adam Dreece’s The Yellow Hoods series. One thing to note about this series is they must be read in order. None of these can stand alone or you will find yourself confused by the characters that populate this fun series. The fairy tales continue to come to life in this wonderfully crafted tale. This book is longer than Along Came a Wolf, but it needed it. Not only are the original cast of characters present, but we’re introduced to a whole slew of new people. As a matter of fact, we’re introduced to so many, it could be overwhelming to some to keep track of them all. The book starts off in the middle of an intense action scene. When you turn the page, you’re immediately sent back in time by 4 months. While this definitely catches your attention and makes you want to read to find out how Tee came to be in such a position, it might irritate some. However, we’re taken back to a wonderful scene in December, and Nikolas Klaus, along with his helpers, are loading a sleigh with toys to take to the nearby town of Mineau for the Winter Solstice celebration. Continuing along, we meet our first new characters, Maxwell and Franklin Watt. Maxwell is the inventor of the steam engine that Simon St. Malo desperately wanted. Nikolas warned him about what happened and Maxwell sent his son off to Nikolas carrying the plans for the steam engine. While Maxwell only made this brief appearance in the book, I’m fairly certain he’ll make more appearances in future books. Back in Mineau, we meet Pierre de Montagne, someone the Yellow Hoods had saved earlier in the year. He was a hermit who lived in the mountains, but with their intervention that saved his life, he decided to become more social before his life was over. After awhile, we get to meet Anna, the head of the Tub. She immediately strikes me as “not a nice person.” When you read it, you will see what I mean by that. There are a lot more characters who make an appearance in this book, but you will have to read it to meet all of them. All in all, it was brilliantly written and walks you right back to the starting point without a hitch. You get to watch how it all unfolded and how Tee managed to find herself hanging by the handle of her slingshot from the edge of a crumbling wall. I definitely would recommend this series to anyone and I can’t wait for the third book in the series to be released.
