The Wolves of Solomon is a novel by ex-pat British author R.L. Blackhurst. Ms Blackhurst now lives in the South Island of New Zealand with her partner. I came across The Wolves of Solomon when Ms Blackhurst posted the novel for review in the Facebook group Review Seekers (the New Zealand connection is entirely coincidental). It was originally intended for my son to read and review; the original post on Facebook said something along the lines of “This is not strictly YA”, and I seized on the YA p ...more

I loved this story. Although I initially considered the premise of Templar Knights as Werewolves as preposterous, I was sufficiently wooed by the story line to suspend disbelief and follow this story. On doing so, I was rewarded with a tale that unfolded with rich historical detail and complex political machinations that are more than believable for the times in which the story is set. I found the pace was even throughout although a couple of slow spots had me skipping pages ... only because I r ...more
This is a brilliant amalgamation of historical fact, a ton of fiction, werewolves, revenge, conspiracy and good ol' action adventure very much in the theme of Three Musketeers and similar stories.

We find ourselves following a number of the char ...more

I found this book to be very leading and a Templar who doesn't believe in its' cause is not something I'm into. Plus the heroine was a bit too Mary-Sue, the Abbess too damning, you get the picture. Shame because the premise is wonderful.

Good read! 5 stars

This book was good. The story flowed well and kept you interested in the outcome of it's very likable hero and his mate.

Great Story

This book does fit in with historical events, and could be said is true. But that there lies the secret of the Templars.
Very interesting. Started out a little slow, but once all the preliminary descriptions were done it got interesting. Very different from the usual werewolf tale. I have started the second book in the series.
