In the second book set in the medieval world of werewolves created in his first novel, Wolfbreed, S.A. Swann tells the story of Maria, a servant girl who finds herself torn between two destinies. On one side is Josef, the brave knight she nurses back to health, a Wolfjäger sworn to destroy all wolfbreed; on the other is Darien, a dangerous werewolf bent on revenge, who tempts Maria with dark desires. For unbeknownst to her, she herself is wolfbreed, the beast inside her kept at bay by the silver cross around her neck; and when her true nature is revealed, Maria finds her heart, her courage, and her very soul put to the test.
Part romance, part horror, part medieval adventure, Wolf’s Cross is a tighter and more intense novel than Wolfbreed; the world of dark forests and torch-lit castles feels historically authentic, yet also as fantastical as a dark fairy tale. With charismatic characters who are easy to root for, lush settings to draw the reader in, and plenty of exciting, gory action, fans of Wolfbreed will be thrilled with this second offering, and new readers will find lots of great supernatural storytelling to savor.
