9780006483878: The Wolf King

The concluding volume of the seductive and atmospheric historical fantasy.

Charlemagne has massed his army in Geneva, poised to add Italy to his growing list of conquests. Meanwhile, the mercenary forces of King Desiderus are perched on the other side of the Alps, ready to attack anyone moving through the mountain passes. In between live the shapeshifters, protected by their leader, Maeniel, and his bride, Regeane.

The ensuing war destroys everything that Regeane and Maeniel have struggled to accomplish, and soon they are separated, as Maeniel is captured by Desiderus’ men. Now Regeane must save him. But to do so, she enlists the aid of another – a Saxon whose love for her will prove devastatingly fatal.

Beautifully written, richly detailed and magnificently told, this brings a unique and breathtaking trilogy to a triumphant close.

Review:

Praise for the author:

‘A daring and vibrant new voice on the female literary frontier – a writer with the vision and scope to conjure up her own thrilling mythos and the craftsmanship to render it in breathtaking, shimmering prose… a stunning initiation into a dark and dazzling realm’

‘A marvellous tale, it is a thriller, tragedy, horror and eventually a fairy-tale love story’
The Telegraph

‘Borchardt’s wolves have a sensuous intensity that matches the best suspense fantasy being written today’

Marion Zimmer Bradley

From the Back Cover:

Charlemagne has massed his army in Geneva, poised to add Italy to his growing list of conquests. Meanwhile, the mercenary forces of King Desiderus are perched on the other side of the Alps, ready to attack anyone moving through the mountain passes. In between live the shapeshifters, protected by their leader, Maeniel, and his bride, Regeane.

The ensuing war destroys everything that Regeane and Maeniel have struggled to accomplish, and soon they are separated, as Maeniel – pledged to Charlemagne as man, loyal to none as wolf – is captured by Desiderus' men. Now Regeane must save him. But to do so, she enlists the aid of another – a Saxon whose love for her will poses a danger of its own.

Behind the tangle of ambitions and animosities, an ancient evil thirsts for revenge: a revenge that demands the blood of Maeniel and Regeane… and all of humanity.

PRAISE FOR ALICE BORCHARDT

'A daring and vibrant new voice on the female literary frontier – a writer with the vision and scope to conjure up her own thrilling mythos and the craftsmanship to render it in breathtaking, shimmering prose… 'The Silver Wolf' is a stunning initiation into a dark and dazzling realm.'
ANNE RICE

'A Marvellous tale, it is a thriller, tragedy, horror and eventually a fairy-tale love story.'
TELEGRAPH

'Borchardt reaches descriptive and dramatic peaks with Regeane's vulpine supersenses as she noses about Rome by night, reading the dead city's skin and air. Top-flight fantasy.'
