Wolfsangel by M.D. Lachlan

This is the myth of the werewolf as it has never been told before and marks the beginning of an extraordinary new fantasy series from Gollancz.


The Viking King Authun leads his men on a raid against an Anglo-Saxon village.  Men and women are killed indiscriminately but Authun demands that no child be touched.  He is acting on prophecy.  A prophecy that tells him that the Saxons have stolen a child from the Gods.  If Authun, in turn, takes the child and raises him as an heir, the child will lead his people to glory.

But Authun discovers not one child, but twin baby boys.  Ensuring that his faithful warriors, witness to what has happened, die during the raid Authun takes the children and their mother home, back to the witches who live on the troll wall.  And he places his destiny in their hands.

And so begins a stunning multi-volume fantasy epic that will take a werewolf from his beginnings as the heir to a brutal viking king, down through the ages.  It is a journey that will see him hunt for his lost love through centuries and lives, and see the endless battle between the wolf, Odin and Loki – the eternal trickster – spill over into countless bloody conflicts from our history, and over into our lives.

Peer & Press Reviews

Infused with myth and magic and sporting an intelligent and involving tale that offers so much more than a lot of books today.  Wolfsangel is a treat to read and very quickly sets itself up as a story you could see the Vikings telling their children in the days of old.

Alice Wybrew, Fantasy Book Review

Part fantasy, part horror, part historical adventure, bound up with a tight, lean style and featuring some of the strangest and most sinister magic I’ve encountered.

Joe Abercrombie, author of The Blade Itself

Sent chills down my spine, it was so good.  Dark, bloody and dangerous, you can almost smell the sweat and iron coming off the pages.  Could well be the standard by which werewolves will be judged for some years to come.

Stephen Deas, author of The Adamantine Palace
