Wolf King, The

Author(s): Borchardt Alice


"A writer with . . . vision and scope . . . breathtaking, shimmering prose."--Anne Rice

The armies of Charlemagne are poised to conquer Italy. The human side of shapeshifter Maeniel owes allegiance to Charlemagne. But the wolf acknowledges no master. Still, it is as both wolf and man that he embarks on a hazardous mission for the emperor. Captured, Maeniel is condemned to death.

Now, with the help of a Saxon warrior whose love poses dangers of its own, Maeniel's soul mate, Regeane, will brave the icy crags and crevices of the Alps to rescue her husband, only to find that he is the bait in a trap set for her by a villainous man from her darkest past. But there is another enemy at work. Behind the tangle of ambitions and animosities driving kings and commoners alike, an ancient evil thirsts for a revenge of its own: a revenge that demands the blood of Maeniel and Regeane...and of all humanity.

"Action and intrigue-filled . . . Borchardt's strength . . . is her deeply researched setting, which brings alive the barbaric era after the fall of the Roman Empire."--Publishers Weekly
