Wolf's Crossby S. A. Swann
Synopses & Reviews
S. A. Swann continues to reinvent the werewolf myth in this fantastic new novel set in the medieval world of the celebrated Wolfbreed. Like its predecessor, Wolf's Cross is unafraid to cross boundariesand break taboos to tell an unforgettable story of romance and adventure that will forever change how you think about werewolves.
Maria lives a simple life in a small Polish village, workingfor the lord of the nearby fortress. Motherless since birth, Maria has been raised by her father and stepmother. Around her neck she wears--as she has always worn--a silver crucifix, to protect her fromthe devil. Or so her father tells her.
But when a contingent of badly mauled Teutonic knights, including a handsome and gravely wounded young man named Josef, ask for succor at the fortress, Maria's quiet and comfortable world shatters. For the knights are Wolfjagers, an order dedicated to the extermination of werewolves, and Maria, unknowingly, is one of the creatures they hunt. Only thecrucifix about her neck prevents her body from changing into a lethal killing machine.
When Maria meets Darien, a wolfbreed bent on exacting a terrible revenge on humans, she will learn the truth aboutherself, and find her loyalties--and her heart--torn in two.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Maria, a young Polish woman, has grown up believing herself human, but when she begins to render care to a wounded Teutonic knight, her dreadful secret rears its head: she is a wolfbreed. It's up to both of them to determine where their loyalties lie.
