Book Description

"The humans are weak. Their skin is soft, and their minds dull from years of safety. We are the vicious. We are the destroyers. Come the full moon, when our goddess watches our victory, we will taste of their blood!"

----

Wolf-men, savage creatures given humanoid form in an ancient war, mass along the Gihon River. Led by their packleader Redclaw, they seek to cross the river and claim a land of their own, slaughtering those that would stand in their way. Two paladins, Jerico of the god Ashhur, and Darius of the god Karak, must helm the desperate defense against the invasion. Their friendship will be tested as their gods resume an unending war, and their very faiths call for the death of the other. Together, friend or foe, they must face Redclaw's horde.

NIGHT OF WOLVES by David Dalglish
Can faith remain when the gods call for blood?

5.0 out of 5 stars New series? Yes please... June 29, 2011
By JOA
Format:Kindle Edition
Rating: 4.6 out of 5

What does friendship mean?

Is it sticking up for your cohorts in time of need? Is it putting aside differences and trying to find a common ground? Is it a solemn smile or a firm slap across the face when the other starts to stray? Is it setting aside your own fears and convictions, even though everything about you says to get away, because deep down you just trust this person, for better or worse?

These are the questions David Dalglish asks in Night of Wolves, the first book in his new Paladins series.

With this series, it seems Dalglish is going down a Memento path when it comes to his characters' stories - aka going backward. This particular book is the tale of Jerico, the paladin of Ashhur we first met (and fell in love with) in The Death of Promises. Wolves takes a few years before the events in the Half-Orc series, and introduces a major plot point that those who've digested Dalglish's work might find unbelievable.

A friendship between paladins of the two polar gods, Ashhur and Karak.

Jerico, it seems, has befriended a young man named Darius while both are stationed in the farming town of Durham, preaching the messages of their particular religions. Theirs is a relationship built upon mutual respect - they learn from each other, protect each other, help each other grow...the gods be damned. And when the wolf-men from the Vile Wedge start crossing the river, threatening the lives of the townsfolk, they must work together even more so than before, which causes just a few moral dilemmas within each of them. But work together they do, because they both realize that without their combined strength, the good men and women of Durham don't stand a chance.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great expectations, little satisfaction February 2, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a lover of fantasy genre, I was recomended to read something from David Dalgish. This book seemed quite interesting so I picked it for like .99. While reading, I had to put the book down several times and force myself to read it through (just an interesting point - I fell asleep two times while reading this book). The characters are deeply uninteresting and shallow. Paladin of Ashur is good-hearted and kind, paladin of Karak is cocky and undecisive when it comes to something other than killing. That's all about two main characters... Sadly, uninteresting is also plot - two paladins kills one man-like wolf and this sets series of actions that are all the same or similar - they kill one, then they kill several of them and at the end, they are facing all of them. The pacing is slow and the story is boring. Basically nothing happens until the main battle which is at the end of the book (page like 180-190/217). Settings is very uninteresting since it is dull and boring. There isn't single place that is important for the story (except the village and the Wedge itself) nor single place that would be memorable. I'm baffled by such high rating this book has.. Does it really deserves such a high rating? Sorry, but I don't think so.

*spoiler*
The wolf-men are very strangely depicted - firstly, they are described as nearly godlike creatures when Paladin of Ashur has troubles taking down ONE, but then, they stand up to like 200 of them. Strange, huh?

4.0 out of 5 stars Dalglish is Getting Better with Every New Series February 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the third series of his that I have read, and I enjoy each one more than the last. He really seems to be maturing as an author, and I appreciate that he is shedding his unwillingness to protect all his favorite tertiary characters from harm. This book is well worth the time to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine fantasy-adventure by David Dalglish June 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Night of the Wolves" is the first book in 'The Paladins' series by author David Dalglish. This Kindle e-edition a 308 Kb download while the paperback copy is 216 pages in length.

*SPOILER*

A group of ferocious wolves have a new leader, Redclaw, and he has decided to assert his long suppressed desire to leave 'The Wedge' where he and his clan have be forced to live; forced because the humans have hunted them to near extinction everywhere else. These wolves, however, are not your average animal; they are huge, incredible strong, can stand erect and speak the human language (and thus are often referred to as 'wolf-men'). He decides to begin his quest for freedom by attacking a small isolated town, called Durham, and its inhabitants. However he doesn't take into account the fact that two Paladins, Jerico and Darius, have been assigned to watch over this remote hamlet. The story details several small encounters between the two groups before the big battle at the finale.

*END SPOILER*

This is a well written story that builds in tensions as the stakes become higher with each encounter. The battles, initially little more than skirmishes rapidly progress into major confrontations. Things begin to take on a personal note as members on both side are killed...hatred, animosity and doubt begin to creep into all participants both human and wolf, adding to the depth of overall story and character development.

The story was told in a manner that alternated between the two faction and this technique had some pros and cons. The positive was that it gave the reader an excellent sense of what both sides where thinking and the rational for their actions.
