Description: When they tried to kill a prince, they made a king.

In the aftermath of his pack leader’s assassination Connor Lewis is ready to take control. Rodolfus de Aquila’s plan before he died was to unite the European werewolf packs against their common enemies: the Hounds of God who make the laws and enforce them ruthlessly with questionable motives, and the Luparii, an intergovernmental group of werewolf hunters now bent on the extermination of his kind. The uneasy alliance between these two factions has fallen apart, and now a battle wages leaving the pack werewolves scrambling to escape bio-chemical warfare on one side, and total domination on the other.

After hearing rumors of a union between the American packs Connor returns with Amara to his home city of New York to learn how to bring the Old World packs together. Werewolf society in the New World has taken a very different course from that of Europe, but when Connor meets the American leaders he begins to question if their ways are, in fact, the path forward.

A world away from Madison, Arden, and all those that he is trying to protect, Connor must discover the secret to uniting and leading the packs under one final charge, or else risk extinction for their entire species in the epic conclusion to The Magdeburg Trilogy.

The Good Stuff
  • Fabulous conclusion to a truly unique and unusual series
  • Characters are full of flaws which make them so very very human (or wolf)
  • So much work was obviously put into world building and character development
  • Extremely fast paced - was on the edge of my seat on many occasions 
  • It makes you believe that scientifically this could totally happen 
  • Ben is a delightful addition to the tale
  • Ending is not wrapped up as all happily ever after - there is real life here in this fantastical tale
  • Highly recommend this book for those who want something very different and 
  • Fierce Ink Press is a brilliant publisher who produces top notch Canadian fiction 
  • Could lead to some interesting discussions about ethics
  • Fabulous uses of humour 
  •  Intriguing use of settings
 The Not So Good Stuff
  •  Should have gone back to the first two books as I was a tad confused at times (or lets face it I am old and overworked - brain is a wee bit fuzzy these days
  • Yeah, never really got the point of the character of Esrin

Favorite Quotes/Passages

 "The memory registers. "Your zombie mouse? Yeah, he bit me. You said it was nothing. Did I ge Peter Parkered?|

"With Great power comes great mistrust."
"That's not how that line goes."

"It would be a kind of farce if the Founders turned out to be some version of Law and Order: Special Werewolf Unit."

"Creature comforts. What a weird turn of phrase since in my other form all of this would be completely redundant."
