Publisher's Summary

The world grows colder with each passing year, the longer winters and ever-deepening snows awaking ancient fears within the Dengan Packstead, fears of invasion by armed and desperate nomads, attack by the witchlike and mysterious Silth, able to kill with their minds alone, and of the Grauken, that desperate time when intellect gives way to buried cannibalistic instinct, when meth feeds upon meth.

For Marika, a young pup of the Packstead, loyal to pack and family, times are dark indeed, for against these foes, the Packstead cannot prevail. But awakening within Marika is a power unmatched in all the world, a legendary power that may not just save her world, but allow her to grasp the stars themselves.

From Glen Cook, author of the Black Company and Dread Empire novels. The first audiobook in the Darkwar series.

Glen Cook is a very favorite author. I have read and reread many of his books many many times. I think this is my second time thru this series as I read it about 30 years ago and really liked it then. Black Company is my favorite series. Have fun and enjoy either series, I love his writing style and think that you will too.

Any additional comments?

Over twenty-five years ago a friend introduced me to Cook's writings with this series. I have never been disappointed in any of his novels since. This was one of the first series i got as soon as I got a kindle. Now, I am overjoyed to have the audiobook as well.
