This was a fantasy book series I read many years ago:

  • It has a grandfather wizard who lives in a tower.

  • His grandson who is also a wizard who becomes a king and his sister who is also magic.

  • These characters often change into wolves. It even writes about how the wolf pack works.

  • The world is overseen by a group of gods that are all related.

Could it be possible that you are thinking of the Belgariad by David Eddings? The wolves kinda match, the hero of the books - Belgarion becomes a king. His Grandfather Belgarath is both a wizard and has a tower. Both of these characters turn into wolves. The part that doesn't match is that there is no sister involved. The principal female character is Polgara, Belgaraths daughter and Belgarions aunt. The gods of this world are all from the same 'family'.

  • It's certainly a possible match. I think the problem here is that we've got a pretty generic description of the (pretty generic) characters and no description of what they actually do in the books.

  • I think this must be it! The OP is probably thinking of Polgara with his 'sister'.
