Summary
In Leo Carew's thrilling and savagely visceral debut epic fantasy, The Wolf , violence and death come to the land under the Northern Sky when two fierce races break their age-old fragile peace and begin an all-out war. Beyond the Black River, among the forests and mountains of the north, lives an ancient race of people. Their lives are measured in centuries, not decades; they revel in wilderness and resilience, and they scorn wealth and comfort. By contrast, those in the south live in the moment, their lives more fleeting. They crave wealth and power; their ambition is limitless, and their cunning unmatched. When the armies of the south flood across the Black river, the fragile peace between the two races is shattered. On a lightning-struck battlefield, the two sides will fight - for their people, for their land, for their very survival. What reviewers are already saying about Carew's breathtaking fantasy epic: "Full of dark conspiracies, larger-than-life characters, and tense battles, Leo Carew has created a rousing cross between The Magnificent Seven and Game of Thrones ." - Paul Hoffman "Carew's brisk and engaging narrative, with its mixture of gritty violence and political intrigue, will remind readers of George R. R. Martin, David Gemmell, or a less-bleak Joe Abercrombie." - Booklist "Gripping and ambitious . . . twisty in its political maneuverings, gritty in its battle descriptions, and rich with a sense of heroism and glory." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) "An action-packed and blood-splattered tour de force . . . . Carew is the real deal - an exciting new voice in fantasy." - Kirkus "Carew's worldbuilding skills are strong and his ability to infuse even the grittiest battle scene with emotion and drive is impressive." - RT Book Reviews Under the Northern Sky The Wolf span

Summary
Roper has been thrust into a position of leadership that he's woefully unprepared for. Now, a massive army approaches from the south, old allies turn against him, and new rivals seek to undermine his rule. Bellamus is a brash but capable southern general, a commoner with the rare honor of having the discreet support of the Queen. Victory means glory, and defeat promises much worse than disgrace
