The Vikings are laying siege to Paris. They want the Count's sister, in return they will spare the rest of the city. As houses on the banks of the Seine burn, a debate rages in the Cathedral on the walled island of the city proper. Can the Count really have ambitions to be Emperor of the Franks if he doesn't do everything he can to save his people? Can he call himself a man if he doesn't do everything he can to save his sister? His conscience demands one thing, the state demands another.

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.

The sequel to "wolf's angel" this installment is equally excellent. The author's writing has improved. He has wonderfully crafted phrases and few are unclear. The magic is dark, 'other' and compelling. And the twist the author introduces-while not as paradigm shifting as the twist on werewolves he already introduced in the first book- is brilliant. The history and cultures are vibrant. The tension and action are engrossing. A unique blend of history, mythology, fantasy, action and horror sprinkled with moments of humor. It's not an easy read, but it is a good one.
