The Wolf King
We are the Wolf Clan. Long ago our ancestors swore brotherhood with the wolves.
Coll’s people are under attack. The Wolf King, a terrifying masked horseman
armed with a sword, is leading the wolves – their former friends - against them.
Two people have disappeared: Coll’s brother and Grayla’s father. Desperate to
find their missing kinsmen, Coll and Grayla steal away from the homestead at
night and go in search of them. Can they find a way to challenge the power of
the Wolf King?
