Cover art and blurb for 'The Wolf Age'

The "bloke-in-a-cloak" cover done the right way, in my opinion. Come on, how can a black-clad dude with a magic sword, surrounded by werewolves, not be cool? Exactly.

The Wolf Age sounds like it could be good fun: 

Wuruyaaria: city of werewolves, whose raiders range over the dying northlands, capturing human beings for slaves or meat. Wuruyaaria: where a lone immortal maker wages a secret war against the Strange Gods of the Coranians. Wuruyaaria: a democracy where some are more equal than others, and a faction of outcast werewolves is determined to change the balance of power in a long, bloody election year.
Their plans are laid; the challenges known; the risks accepted. But all schemes will shatter in the clash between two threats few had foreseen and none had fully understood: a monster from the north on a mission to poison the world, and a stranger from the south named Morlock Ambrosius.

Pyr has got plenty of sword-and-sorcery goodness lined up: check out this article from their blog for info on more titles.

Ver nice. I agree, the bude, sword and wolves are awesome. I'm also a fan of the northern feel of book covers too, with the snow and mountains etc. I particularly like the pair of hands at the bottom of the cover, like we're looking at the scene from the perspective of one of the wolves. I'll keep my eye on this one, it lokos promising.

Given the previous two books by Enge rocked and this one features the same character, I'm guessing this is going to too. Love the cover!

The cover is a good one, but unfortunately this was one read I just couldn't get into for different reasons. Ah well. Pyr has plenty more good stuff to pick from. Keep an eye out for the Horns of Ruin!
