This had potential, but, my God, the way the story is told is terrible. From sentence to sentence there are insane amounts of background information, so that even scenes where a werewolf is devouring soldiers seem to drag on. Then the werewolf escapes, the young peasant finds her, you turn the page, and you g ...more
Oy oy oy… this book was just… not good. From the very beginning you’re thrown into this medieval world, where Christians use werewolf-like creatures to kill everyone who’s not a Christian. There is a lot of jibberjabber about Christendom, superior Germans, inferior Prûsans and a wolf-girl named Lilly, though we never know how exactly these creatures have come into existence. It could have been a good story if the religious talk wasn’t so copious, because that really slowed the action down. It w ...more
A theological debate rages between the Order and the Church regarding the nature of the wolfbreed. Are they simply animals, soulless but trainable and possibly useful? Or ...more

Many years ago, a Christian order of knights converting pagan lands found a litter of werewolf children. Rather than condemn these children as Satanic creatures, the ...more
In this captivating reinvention of the werewolf novel, S. A. Swann propels readers into the darkest days of the Middle Ages, weaving a rare blend of soaring romance, historical intrigue, paranormal thrills, and spiritual questioning to tell a story that forever changes those who hear it.

Pierwsza rzecz na którą zwracamy uwagę jest oczywiście okładka, która jak dla mnie totalnie nie wyszła - w ogóle nie pasuje do treści książki, a do tego nie jest zbyt zachęcająca...
Co wobec tego zachęciło mnie do przeczytania tej książki? - odpowiedź jest bardzo prosta - koleżanka :) Gdyby nie ona NA PEWNO nie sięgnęłabym po tę książkę... może nie straciłabym bardzo dużo, ale ...more
Met de jaren raken haar twee kanten – die van de moordzuchtige wolf en die van het eenzame meisje – steeds meer los van elkaar. Als Li ...more
This is by no means a “light” novel. Violence, brutality, and some of the worst aspects of humankind are frequently described. The trainin ...more
Good points: I have to hand it to the author, who obviously did their research. For those who are unaware, the region of Prûsa (i) has nothing to do with the German state of Prussia (although the name of the latter was derived from the former), (ii) is now divided between the countries of Poland, Lithuania, and Russia, (iii) was conquered by the German order of the Teutonic Knights, if I'm not mistaken. (Feel free to correct me if I am.) The ...more
It was, as it turns out, rather silly. It is one of the books that should be filed in the paranormal romance section of a book store and then only read by those who are silly of heart.
It is set in the 11st in old timey Prusia. A young man wit ...more
