"The life of a traveling merchant is a lonely one, a fact with which Kraft Lawrence is well acquainted. Wandering from town to town with just his horse, cart, and whatever wares have come his way, the peddler has pretty well settled into his routine-- that is, until the night Lawrence finds a wolf goddess asleep in his cart. Taking the form of a fetching girl with wolf ears and a tail, Holo has wearied of tending to harvests in the countryside and strikes up a bargain with the merchant to lend him the cunning of 'Holo the Wisewolf' to increase his profits in exchange for taking her along on his travels. What kind of businessman could turn down such an offer? Lawrence soon learns, though, that having an ancient goddess as a traveling companion can be a bit of a mixed blessing. Will this wolf girl turn out to be too wild to tame?"--Publisher's web site.

I love the series but there seems to be a mix up with the novel and manga with the library's catalog. :(
They appear to be registered as if they were the same book. Just like how they will split a book into more than one movie (or parts), they do the same with the comics. So volume 3 of the manga is the end of the first novel.
Volume 3 came up as a novel in the catalog, but when I put it on hold I got vol. 3 of the Manga instead.
At first I was told they didn't have the novel, only the manga, but the same thing happened in reverse. I checked out all volumes 1-9 but volume 3, and being that i didn't have it, I turned in 6-9 to find out 6 was replaced by the Manga in the catalog.

I discovered that vol. 1,2, & 6 have 2 ISBN's. One for the Novel and the other is the Manga.
NOVEL 1= 9780759531048
MANGA 1= 9780316073394

Saw the show and found out that it was based on this "light novel". There's only 4 volumes in english so far, but hopefully the library acquires the rest. Overall an enjoyable series that may seem bland at first but grow on you.
