A masterpiece in epic historical fantasy - a new voice to rival David Gemmell or George R R Martin.

A great war has come to the land under the Northern Sky.

Beyond the Black River, among the forests and mountains of the north, lives an ancient race of people. Their lives are measured in centuries, not decades; they revel in wilderness and resilience, and they scorn wealth and comfort.

By contrast, those in the south live in the moment, their lives more fleeting. They crave wealth and power, their ambition is limitless, and their cunning unmatched.

When the armies of the south flood across the Black River, the fragile peace between the two races is shattered. On a lightning-struck battlefield, the two sides will fight - for their people, for their land, for their very survival.

Two sides. One victor.

The Wolf is a thrilling, savagely visceral, politically nuanced and unexpectedly wry exploration of power and identity - and how far one will go to defend them.

'The next George RR Martin' - Mail on Sunday 

'Imagine Game of Thrones rewritten by John le Carre . . . A marvellously accomplished debut' - Guardian 

'Gripping and ambitious . . . twisty in its political maneuverings, gritty in its battle descriptions, and rich with a sense of heroism and glory' - Publishers Weekly 

'The Wolf is a work of extraordinary imagination and perhaps the most captivating first novel I've ever read' - Michael Dobbs, author of House of Cards 

'When inexperienced young Roper unexpectedly inherits the throne he quickly realises his reign is going to be memorable only for its brevity unless he can he can recruit a handful of crafty outsiders to teach him how to stay alive. Full of dark conspiracies, larger-than-life characters, and tense battles, Leo Carew has created a rousing cross between The Magnificent Seven and Game of Thrones' - Paul Hoffman, author of The Left Hand of God

'An action-packed and blood-splattered tour de force . . . Carew is the real deal - an exciting new voice in fantasy' - Kirkus Reviews
