Description

Betrayal, love, and lycanthropy in the time of the Crusades When Marie PenthiEvre of Chalendrey is abducted from her Norman priory and taken to Brittany's court, she vows never to dishonor her family's ties by marrying a Breton brute. There is only one man who might change her mind: TiarnAn of Talensac, a handsome, skilled, and noble knight indeed. But TiarnAn does not love her, and when he marries a slip of a girl instead, Marie vows to become a nun as soon as she is able. But TiarnAn has a secret, and that slip of a girl betrays him once she learns of it. When TiarnAn disappears and is presumed dead, his widow marries his one time rival and assumes title to his land, which steadily begins to decline under her unskilled, merciless rule. Marie knows something is wrong, and only she is clear headed enough to rescue TiarnAn and return him to his rightful status. But can she do so before it is too late? Rich in romance, and intrigue, steeped in history and wonder, The Wolf Hunt is historical fiction at its best, by one of its most skilled practitioners. Based on one of the Lais of Marie de France, The Wolf Hunt is a breathtaking adventure that showcases, once again, Gillian Bradshaw's respectability as both a historian and as a novelist.
