About the book:
In a work of great scope and imagination, David Clement-Davies, author of the highly acclaimed Fire Bringer, takes us to the dark forests of old Transylvania and into the minds of wolves.
Morgra, a she-wolf of mysterious and frightening abilities, was once cast out of her pack for an unnatural crime and forced to wander the hostile lands of Transylvania alone. Through cunning and natural dominance, Morgra survives and makes herself leader of a strange pack of male warrior wolves. She demands the subservience of all free wolf packs and a tithe of their pups. One among these young has an extraordinary power that the old she-wolf covets-an ability to see into the minds of other animals, including humans. Morgra is prepared to do anything to control this power, and her dark arts can summon demons and the walking dead. But Larka, the young wolf Morgra seeks, was born into a pack with the strength and heart to defy their new leader, and their rebellion will set in motion a great struggle for the minds and souls of all wolves.
Drawing on lupine myths and stories from Romulus and Remus to Little Red Riding Hood, David Clement-Davies weaves a story of terror and beauty, where wolves are saviors and demons, good and evil, much like the world's other great predator-man.
