"Her writing style is fluid and at times lyrical, her description of northern Germany meticulous and fully immersive, and her knowledge of folklore extensive. But it’s her characters that make this novel so readable. Interesting and emotionally compelling, they are certain to resonate with readers."

Synopsis

              "Superbly written and impeccably edited." -- BlueInk Review    In 782 AD, a beast prowls the forests of northern Germany. He is Wulfhedinn, wolf demon--scourge of the Christian Franks. He is also Gerwulf, the man, a wretched outcast and bastard of a Christian woman and pagan father.

Gerwulf emerges from the shadows to escape his demons and seek deliverance. To redeem his mortal soul, he serves the legendary Charlemagne in a savage Holy War against the pagan Saxons.

Gerwulf's quest pits him against the dark powers of a mysterious Saxon shield maiden and leads to his greatest battle--reclaiming his humanity in a dark age when beasts lurk inside all men.

...and the Raven, The Eater of Souls, she soars above...hungering to feast on the blood guilt of all.
