Synopses & Reviews
Includes her debut novel Masques and its sequel Wolfsbane—together in one volume
Before there was Mercy Thompson… In a world far removed from the Alpha and Omega werewolves… There was the shapeshifting mercenary Aralorn.
After an upbringing of proper behavior and oppressive expectations, Aralorn has fled her noble birthright for a life of adventure as a mercenary spy. Her latest mission involves gathering intelligence on the increasingly charismatic and dangerous sorcerer Geoffrey ae’Magi. But in a war against an adversary armed with the power of illusion, how do you know who the true enemy is—or where he will strike next?
For the last ten years, Aralorn has led a dangerous existence. Now she must return home, for her noble father, the Lyon of Lambshold, has passed away. But when Aralorn and her companion Wolf arrive, they find that not only is he not dead, but a darkness is very much alive within him…

Praise for WOLFSBANE:
"Good fun." --Locus
"This made excellent company for a cold winter's night, reminded me of just how much I love the fantasy genre in general, and made me long for more books about this couple. If you are a fan of the Alpha and Omega series by Briggs, you will decidedly want to give this one a try." --All About Romance
