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. After ensuring that his faithful warriors, witnesses 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.
So begins a stunning multivolume 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 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.
I love werewolf books, always have really. I love to find new books about wolves and new takes on the legends of werewolves. Wolfsangel is a great beginning to a new series that combines wolfs and Vikings in a way that is fantastic.
Wolfsangel begins with a Viking King raiding a village to take a child, when the king finds twins he takes both and the mother and returns to his home. One child he keeps as his heir and the other he hands over to a group of witches. Then things get really interesting and the story twists and turns its way to a fantastic conclusion.
M favorite character in Wolfsangel is definitely Adsila. She is a young woman from the village the kings heir is fostered in, she is also the woman the heir is in love with thought he is promised to another in a political arrangement. Adsila gets caught between the twins as their paths are wound and twined together in epic ways. She is strong, loving and caring, she does her best to help and care for both of the twins even though they don’t make that easy most of the time.
Keep in mind that the relationship between Adsila and the twins is a minor part of the story.
Wolfsangel is a fantastic story filled with twists, turns and an adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Definitely one You Need To Read.
