Publisher's Summary

Though his home was undamaged when the Wolf-Queen attacks, Tristan loses it anyway. His father abandons him, sells their pottery shop, and leaves him with nothing but a rucksack full of worthless mementos. 

Desperate, he turns to his estranged uncle for help. He gifts Tristan an ancestral sword: a great paramarion from a bygone age. Tristan’s only option is to join the mysterious Huntsmen and track down the horrors that haunt his village in the slim hope of finding the fortune he needs to buy back his home and restore his family.

The Huntsman and the She-Wolf is an action packed story of a young man carrying the responsibility of teaching himself to survive. At the same time, he tries to win back everything taken from him. It is a story that will appeal to listeners who love adventure and understand that faith in a cause is a guidepost in the journey of life we all take.

Refreshing new take on "monsters"

I picked this up on audible and was first drawn to the artwork of the cover. I am picky about my audio books because some narrators just don't keep my interest. What I really appreciated about this narration, was the fact that it was done by the author. Since it was his work, I knew that when their was an emphasis on certain words or phrases, it was intentional. Sometimes I feel the hired narrators miss the mark on that and often I wonder if they are reading things into the text.
I won't tell too much of the story, as to not give away the plot, but I loved how the author developed a unique monster "lore". I am a huge horror fan, and pretty much know the ins and outs of "creatures" in fiction. The cover here alludes to werewolves and, boy, to have something new and different was wonderful. It kept me tuned in to see where he was going with it.
I can't wait for book 2.
I love also that this is something I feel confident giving my 13 year old to read because it is written without adult language and overt sexual overtones. Notice, I said I read horror - so all of that is in all of the Stephen King and Joe Hill books I read, and yes I am being a hypocritical parent- I don't want to pass that on over to my kid -at least not yet lol.
This is a good fantasy book, with its own author developed lands, origins, battles and tribulations. It is a refreshing new take on the fantastical monster stories of the past. I recommend you pick this up. Give a new author a try.
