Pyr has a knack of producing great quality, highly commercial fantasy. One of their best discoveries in recent years is James Enge, whose first novel Blood of Ambrose was nominated for this year's World Fantasy Awards. Follow up This Crooked Way was also very well received by reviewers. This new title The Wolf Age tells of the further adventures of the enchanter, Morlock Ambrosius and is a trade paperback release.
"'Spear-age, sword-age: shields are shattered. Wind-age, wolf-age: before the world founders no man will show mercy to another.' Wuruyaaria: city of werewolves, whose raiders range over the dying northlands, capturing human beings for slaves or meat. Wuruyaaria: where a lone immortal maker wages a secret war against the Strange Gods of the Coranians. Wuruyaaria: a democracy where some are more equal than others, and a faction of outcast werewolves is determined to change the balance of power in a long, bloody election year. Their plans are laid; the challenges known; the risks accepted. But all schemes will shatter in the clash between two threats few had foreseen and none had fully understood: a monster from the north on a mission to poison the world, and a stranger from the south named Morlock Ambrosius.
