When the first edition of Ulrik was published in the summer of 2008 I never would have guessed it would be a five-year wait until the next volume of The Werewolf Saga was released. After all, Ulrik ended on something of a cliffhanger and I began writing the next volume almost immediately. Alas, the trouble with that publisher continued to worsen and the book was delayed.
But no more!
Readers of The Werewolf Saga can finally learn whether Josef Ulrik lives or dies. Nadia’s Children is available today in trade paperback and for the Kindle from MoonHowler Press. The paperback is $14.95 and the Kindle edition is $3.99. Distribution to other outlets and formats will follow soon.
Here’s the text from the back cover:
After centuries of waiting, the Alpha has arrived. The Pack is gathering.
In the wilds of Mexico the Old Ones gather around Shara as her third pregnancy nears its triumphant end. Meanwhile, Kiona and Chris hide Joey in the Arkansas swamps, hoping the treachery they fomented will not find them. In California, Fenris rages over missed opportunities.
As Joey grows into adulthood confined to a swamp, Morrigan, his unknown sister, comes of age under the tutelage of Holle, an Old One with an agenda all her own. Trusts are broken and dangerous new alliances are formed as Shara and Thomas try to keep control of their powerful daughter.
It may be too late, though. Morrigan is calling the Pack to gather, and Holle wants a return to the bloody ways of the ancient world. Nobody can resist the call. The Pack must gather for an apocalyptic battle that will change things forever.
I think this volume shows the anger and frustration I felt toward my previous publisher. It is the darkest book of the series. I had to put it aside for a while at one point to determine if it really had to go where it seemed to be going. I’m very anxious to hear reader responses to the tale.
Thank you to everyone who waited so long for the journey to continue. I hope I don’t disappoint. Now come, leave the path one more time and let’s dance in the forest.
