Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Vikings are laying siege to Paris. They want the Counts sister, in return they will spare the rest of the city. As houses on the banks of the Seine burn, a debate rages in the Cathedral on the walled island of the city proper. Can the Count really have ambitions to be Emperor of the Franks if he doesnt do everything he can to save his people? Can he call himself a man if he doesnt do everything he can to save his sister? His conscience demands one thing, the state demands another. The Count and the church are relying on the living saint, the blind and crippled Jehan of St. Germain, to enlist the aid of God and resolve the situation for them. But the Vikings have their own gods, and outside their camp, a terrifying brother and sister, priests of Odin, have their own agenda. An agenda of darkness and madness. And in the shadows a wolfman lurks. M. D. Lachlans stunning epic of mad Gods, Vikings, and the myth of Fenrir, the wolf destined to kill Odin at Ragnarok, is a compelling mix of bloody horror, unlikely heroism, dangerous religion, and breathtaking action.

Review:

"Lachlan doesn't skip a beat in this fast-paced sequel to Wolfsangel, immersing the reader in a richly imagined fantasy fashioned from history, mythology, and strange destinies. Danish berserkers are laying siege to Paris. They seek the lady Aelis, whom fate decrees will play a role in determining whether marauding King Sigfrid is the earthly incarnation of the god Odin. Fleeing in desperation, Aelis relies on two diametrically opposed saviors: the crippled monk Jehan, revered by her people as a saint, and a nameless Norseman whose lycanthropic shape-shifting identifies him as the avatar of Odin's mortal enemy, the Fenris Wolf. Lachlan's rousing tale is enlivened by surprising plot twists and populated with earthy, well-developed characters, making this one of the most entertaining historical fantasy sagas of recent years."
