Summary

S. A. Swann continues to reinvent the werewolf myth in this fantastic new novel set in the medieval world of the celebrated Wolfbreed. Like its predecessor, Wolf’s Cross is unafraid to cross boundaries and break taboos to tell an unforgettable story of romance and adventure that will forever change how you think about werewolves.

Maria lives a simple life in a small Polish village, working for the lord of the nearby fortress. Motherless since birth, Maria has been raised by her father and stepmother. Around her neck she wears—as she has always worn—a silver crucifix, to protect her from the devil. Or so her father tells her.

But when a contingent of badly mauled Teutonic knights, including a handsome and gravely wounded young man named Josef, ask for succor at the fortress, Maria’s quiet and comfortable world shatters. For the knights are Wolfjägers, an order dedicated to the extermination of werewolves, and Maria, unknowingly, is one of the creatures they hunt. Only the crucifix about her neck prevents her body from changing into a lethal killing machine.

When Maria meets Darien, a wolfbreed bent on exacting a terrible revenge on humans, she will learn the truth about herself, and find her loyalties—and her heart—torn in two.

“Swann’s cinematic style and the intensity of [the] star-crossed lovers makes this an excellent selection for lovers of werewolf fiction as well as fans of Jane Lindskold’s Wolf series.” (Library Journal)

Germanic titles wore me out.

Too many polysalibic words take away from the story. Trying to keep the Germanic titles straight wore me out.

Rare pleasure

Suprisingly well done historical background of the story , which even not all the Poles know about. Believable characters and a nice male voice, not artificially high while acting female parts - the book was a real plesure!

What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

Nothing extraordinary.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

not that I remember.

Any additional comments?

I'll buy the next book if there is one. I hope it's a bit longer though.
