W00T! Werewolves as never before!!!

Happy Book Birthday!!

The Viking King Authun leads his men on a raid against an Anglo-Saxon village. Men and women are killed indiscriminately but Authun demands that no child be touched. He is acting on prophecy. A prophecy that tells him that the Saxons have stolen a child from the Gods. If Authun, in turn, takes the child and raises him as an heir, the child will lead his people to glory. But Authun discovers not one child, but twin baby boys. Ensuring that his faithful warriors, witness to what has happened, die during the raid Authun takes the children and their mother home, back to the witches who live on the troll wall. And he places his destiny in their hands. And so begins a stunning multi-volume fantasy epic that will take a werewolf from his beginnings as the heir to a brutal viking king, down through the ages. It is a journey that will see him hunt for his lost love through centuries and lives, and see the endless battle between the wolf, Odin and Loki - the eternal trickster - spill over into countless bloody conflicts from our history, and over into our lives. This is the myth of the werewolf as it has never been told before and marks the beginning of an extraordinary new fantasy series from Gollancz.

Congratulations to M.D. Lachlan (aka Mark 'something else' *g* a super chap, and fellow Gollancz author) on the release of Wolfsangel. Yay!

Want to know more about M.D. Lachlan then check out his blog on the Literary Life over at Gollancz, and this week's Where Stories are Made at Book Chic City.

ETA: His study is messier than mine - not by much - but enough that it makes me feel I can leave my Domestic Goddess in the closet without feeling too guilty :-)

Very intense! I haven't read it yet (I have to be in the right mood for epic fantasy :-))but it does look great.

Thanks for the link love Suzanne!

I haven't read this one, for the same reason as you. I have to be in the right mind for High Fantasy. Does sound good though ;)
