Publisher's Summary

It was a surefire raid to free prisoners, but it will soon become a battle for Wolf’s heart and soul. 

When an escaped Northern prisoner reaches Union lines, his tales of abuse at Libby Prison set up the perfect justifications for a daring raid on Richmond. 

Johannes Wolf has made a crucial mistake. He’s volunteered for a secret raid, dragging along with him his unit of misfits. They fall under the command of Colonel Ulric Dahlgren and set out on a quest for redemption and vengeance that will strike at the head of the Southern Cause.

Will they become famous for their glorious raid as knights of the North? Or will they become savages? Or even forgotten corpses buried in a shallow grave?

Continue the Northern Wolf series and immerse yourself into America’s historical battle for her heart and soul, packed with grueling choices, epic battles, and the horror of war.

Northern Hunt

Excellent civil war novel. Most civil war books I have read focus more on the Southern army. This one is told by the calvary troopers of Michigan. The narrator was excellent.

Intense, action packed and thought provoking

The Northern Hunt continues the story of Johannes Wolf and his time in the 13th Michigan during the Civil War. Both Northern Wolf, and Northern Hunt are superbly strong stories that could stand alone. I found in Hunt an interesting trend which I believe is the heart of this story. “What kind of person are you going to be?” It’s the overarching question being asked throughout the first two books and I believe will be asked throughout the entire series. The really interesting way Greene is asking the question though is what makes it super interesting and an addictively good read that is hard to put down. We are once again thrown into the fray with Wolf and Company and he and his fellow soldiers are quickly back in the grind with stakes set high. The action flows off the page so easily and plays like movie in your mind. The battle scenes are so well written, I feel like Greene really did his homework when it comes to the actual battles, who was in them and what their role was. I really could see this as a Netflix original, as it has all the politics of the times. Greene excels at the characters interaction.
But what I found most interesting was the underlying story and its carefully laid out dynamics with various characters trying to pull Wolf onto different paths. On one side of the spectrum there’s Nelson and Adams acting as devils on his shoulder and on the other side is the venerable old Wilhelm and his trusted friend Roberts. As I said, at its heart, it’s a story about what kind of person is Wolf going to be when, or if he gets out of this war alive, and how he has to live with himself and stand by the way he chose to fight for what he believes in. There is a scene about halfway through, that solidifies Wolfs stance and which side of the line he is going to fall on. And it’s really not even about Wolf, but that’s were the thoughtfulness, and emotional intelligence of Greene’s writing comes in. He was building this tipping point for Wolf under or noses (pun intended) the whole time that it all just fell together beautifully. That section is so well written and such a tragically beautiful chapter that I had to reread it, then I had to listen to the Audible version. Bradford Hastings, who narrated the audio version did such a tremendous job with this part. I ended up listening to the entire book on audible because of his performance. It was so well done I will follow his work as well because of this. I could feel he was really into it and respected the words on the page as his gravelly voice echoed Greene’s message beautifully.
