Fenrir

Fenrir by M.D. Lachlan is the sequel to Wolfsangel. You do not have to have read the first book to understand the sequel, but I would still recommend doing so as I enjoyed the first book. The story begins as Paris is under attack by various Viking armies. The people do not understand why the Count of Paris does not stop the invaders, especially if he has ambitions to be Emperor of the Franks. The Vikings want the Count's sister and they will spare the rest of the city. While the Count's conscience demands one thing, the demands of state demands another. The Count and the Church instead plan have the blind and crippled saint, Jehan of St. Germain to help them instead. But the Vikings have their own gods. And outside their camp a terrifying brother and sister, priests of Odin, have their own agenda. An agenda of darkness and madness. And in the shadows a wolfman lurks. An awesome, dark adventure story that brings the Norse Gods to Paris while the tragic Fenrir struggles with his own beast and his place in the story of Raghornok, the end of the world. Recommend for fans of Wolfsangel and fans of sword and sorcery with historical fiction blended in. I give this one four stars and look forward to seeing the series to continue.

The Vikings are laying siege to Paris. As the houses on the banks of the Seine burn a debate rages in the Cathedral on the walled island of the city proper. The situation is hopeless. The Vikings want the Count's sister, in return they will spare the rest of the city.

His conscience demands one thing, the demands of state another. The Count and the church are relying on the living saint, the blind and crippled Jehan of St Germain, to enlist the aid of God and resolve the situation for them. But the Vikings have their own gods. And outside their camp a terrifying brother and sister, priests of Odin, have their own agenda. An agenda of darkness and madness. And in the shadows a wolfman lurks.
