The Count and the church are relying on the living saint, the blind and crippled Jehan of St. Germain, to enlist the aid of God and resolve the situation for them. But the Vikings have their own gods, and outside their camp, a terrifying brother and sister, priests of Odin, have their own agenda--an agenda of darkness and madness. And in the shadows a wolfman lurks.
M. D. Lachlan's stunning epic of mad Gods, Vikings, and the myth of Fenrir, the wolf destined to kill Odin at Ragnarok, is a compelling mix of bloody horror, unlikely heroism, dangerous religion, and breathtaking action.
Praise for Fenrir
"M. D. Lachlan is simply the most exciting, visceral, and deeply imaginative writer of fantasy working today. I thought Wolfsangel was a masterpiece, but Fenrir is even better, a superbly conjured historical world, potently readable storytelling, beautiful and savage in equal measure: it is unlike any other novel in print. Be wary, though: his werewolf will prey upon your dreams."
-ADAM ROBERTS, Author of Gradisil and New Model Army
"Fenrir is the eagerly awaited sequel to M. D. Lachlan’s Wolfsangel. . . . Utterly convincing. . .plenty of action, strong characters, and vivid description. The story is sufficiently independent of its predecessor to be read and enjoyed on its own."
Praise for Wolfsangel
"Savage, dark, strange, and unpredictable. Recommended."
-JOE ABERCROMBIE, Author of The First Law trilogy
"A unique take on the werewolf mythos, on the Norse pantheon, and on magic itself. An enthralling, mesmerizing book."
-MIKE CAREY, Author of the Felix Castor series
"Sorcery and savagery fuel this rousing historical fantasy. . . . Vivid in its rendering of the primitive historical past, this entertaining adventure will have readers eagerly anticipating the next book in the series."
"From raids to single combat, the author really puts the reader into the heart of the action; it is close, brutal, and often highly personal. . . . Wolfsangel is a highly recommended historical fantasy. . . . Dark, atmospheric, original. . . . This is a great read."
