First in the Craw Trilogy fantasy series involving Nordic myth about Odin and a wolf.

My Take
Oh lord, this story was so convoluted! I gave up trying to make sense of it and just read it to get it over with. There is a very nice summing up at the very end. You might want to read that before you start this story so you have some idea what is happening. I'd like to say it's well-written and the descriptions are gorgeous, but Lachlan is trying too hard to be mysterious and simply leaves the reader hanging in too many places.

On the plus side, it's an interesting look at Scandinavian-type culture.

If you enjoy stories about the gods and their fate. About beserkers and fighting and brutal killing. Betrayals. And just love getting depressed, this is the story for you. As for me, don't ever make me read this again.

The Cover
The cover is absolutely gorgeous with its overall royal blues and snowy greys. A wolf's head above and an army of warriors below. The title is what it's all about, a rune, the Wolfsangel, a magical summons to fulfill prophecy.
