Publisher's Summary

It is late 1862, and the United States has been ripped apart by civil war for over a year with no end in sight. The war is a distant thought to Johannes Wolf, a young German immigrant with a crippled leg keeping him off the muster lists. 

Desperately dredging the gutters for recruits, Wolf cons his way into the depleted, demoralized, and poorly run Union army, and is promptly placed in the undesirable F Company of the 13th Michigan Cavalry. 

Wolf's company find themselves riding with Custer and the Michigan Brigade on a collision course with master horseman J. E. B. Stuart and the Army of Northern Virginia in a small town in Pennsylvania, called Gettysburg. 

Will they stand tall against the knights of the South and prove themselves worthy? Or will they fall beneath screaming bullets and sweeping blades, becoming more bloody fodder for a lost cause? 

Northern Wolf is a thrilling, historical pause-resister packed with detailed passages of battle, the horrors of war, and the struggle to discover oneself. Fans of Bernard Cornwell will be captivated by this powerful new series.

The beginning of an epic story!!!

I started reading Daniel Greene ‘s books a few years ago with The End Time Saga and with each addition to the story it just got better and better. I thought, as a writer, he gains more and more confidence with each book in the series and I like that in a “new” author, it’s fun to watch them grow. Northern Wolf was a surprising but welcomed diversion from the post-apocalyptic world he created in the End Time Saga, and to be honest I wasn’t sure how I felt about a “Civil War Book”. But trusting DG, I took the brave leap into the fray and chaos that is Northern Wolf…and how happy I am that I did!! Set in the late 1800’s, I felt transported back to that time, it read as though I was there and the characters were just as real and visceral as any modern war book. My biggest fear was that I wouldn’t be able to relate to them, but I totally did. As with all reviews that I write I don’t like spoiling any of the plot details or characters arcs, But I’m happy to say that riding with the 13th Michigan was an honor, it was scary, it was intense, and it was at times surprisingly funny and it is something I look forward to reading more about, which for someone who wasn’t initially a Civil War fan should tell you something.
NOTE: For anybody who is on the fence about picking this one up I will say, I got the book which read fast and furious, flowing perfectly AND the Audible version using Whispersync, and it was awesome! So, when I was at home I read, but in daily commute I loved hearing Brad Hasting Narration.

An enticing Civil War story!

While historical, civil war fiction is not my first pick of genres to read, I was pleasantly surprised by this gem. Along with main character Johannes Wolf, other characters (some fictional, some non-fictional) wove a remarkable tapestry from one of this nation’s most horrific time periods. Very well done, Mr. Greene!
