“The Wolf” is a piece that mirrors that of an epic Game of Thrones type fantasy book where there are house loyalties, deep betrayals, assassination attempts and war all wrapped together nicely. There’s a lot of political elements here that go into the rise of a leader and the process of building an army that respects that leadership in order to defeat a long standing enemy who have new tricks up their sleeves and friends in high places pulling strings in order to achieve success. I’m uns [...]

Leo Carew’s fantasy debut is bold, ambitious and very entertaining. The giants of the northern Black Kingdom, the Anakim, face an invasion from the smaller but more numerous Sutherners from across the river that has been the border of a long but fragile peace. The Anakim’s enormous size, their natural bone armor and their ferocity in battle has long struck fear into the Sutherner’s hearts. Roper, son of the Black Lord and leader of the Black Kingdom, finds himself in command during his fir [...]

One-Line Summary:A massive battle of wits, one within a kingdom and one between kingdoms, where the loser forfeits their life and no one truly wins.Summary:The Anakim to the north are known as monsters, demons, and fallen angels by their southern opponents, so when what looks like a green snake appears in the sky, the Suthern king is convinced it’s an omen that they should invade in order to please God. So sure of their victory, the Anakim are taken by surprise to find the Sutherners have laid [...]

*I received this book from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.Let's start with the great! The author is graduate of anthropology and you can tell in this book. He does an excellent job of creating different people groups and delving into the nuances of what their culture would look like. The main character is part of a war driven society of people called the Anakim that live around 200 years (if not killed in battle). They have no written language and little use for art. I [...]

PW Starred: Carew’s gripping and ambitious epic fantasy debut introduces a world closely mapped to Viking-era Europe, with intriguingly differences. Roper Kynortas becomes the leader of the Black Kingdom, the home of the nature-loving, pragmatic race of giants known as the Anakim, after seeing his father killed in their first military defeat in thousands of years. Young, inexperienced, and grieving, Roper has to find a way to secure his nation against the invading human Sutherners while solidi [...]

I received a copy of this book via netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.This book is seriously fantastic, and I honestly cannot say one bad thing about it. The Wolf instantly submerges you into battle between not only two feuding kingdoms but the political battles that lie within a kingdom. Between major battles of the story, characters struggle to maintain power, respect of their men and coping with the politics that come with being a leader. Follow, Rupor, as he ascends [...]

Review:2.5 StarsI received this book from NetGalley for review.There was nothing "wrong" with this book. I just didn't really enjoy it. The prologue felt too long, and that made it harder for me to get invested in this book. It was well written with well written and developed characters. I just don't really enjoy books that are very focused on political intrigue. While the characters werewell written, I often lost track of who was who. Their names were hard for me to follow from time to time. As [...]

To tell you the truth I liked this book more than I expected. I was not really into it at first, but suddenly I had to see what would happen next. The characters are well done and believable. The story has a bit of pacing issue in the middle, but other than that I have no complaints.

I received a free copy of this for review from NetGalley ** The Wolf warrants a solid 3.5 for me. I really enjoyed this book and the characters but I had some issues with the pacing and lack of depth in some of the scenes and situations. First off I LOVE the Anakim. I love Roper and how he was thrust into power at the beginning of the book. I wasn't expecting it and I had a complete mouth drop moment and started yelling at the book. (Kynortas I was rooting for you! You let me down Black Lord!!) [...]

About a 3 - 3.5; mostly enjoyable, but didn't feel particularly unique. I doubt I'll read the rest of the series and probably wouldn't recommend this one to others unless they were die hard fans of the genre. There's so many great fantasy books out there, read those first

War has come to the land of the Northern Sky. Read more of my review here: bookerworm/reviews/210
