Editorial Reviews

Review

"At 490 pages, this is an action-packed read that draws you into the medieval world it creates. The novel is historically accurate in charting the story of the fall of the Templars, interweaving the story of real historical figures and the barbarity of the 1300's with a uniquely plausible explanation of their famous fighting prowess. You will care what happens."
- Lesley Soper, The Book Show, Radio Southland

About the Author

Rebecca Blackhurst was born in Essex in 1972 but grew up in Bahrain and southern Spain. Possessing an incurable wanderlust, she travelled the globe for years before settling back in the UK to complete a degree in Earth and Planetary Sciences and PhD in Astrobiology.

Now living in New Zealand, when she isn't writing, Rebecca makes natural soaps and skin care products as "Soapernatural" and sells her wares and books at local arts and crafts markets and fetes. Having a passion for wolves, Rebecca has two German shepherds and can often be heard howling into the night with her pack.

'The Wolves of Solomon' is her first novel, but she recently published the sequel, 'Wolf.' Driven by her characters, she is currently writing a third book in the series, a prequel to 'The Wolves of Solomon.'

More About the Author

Rebecca Blackhurst was born in Essex in 1972 but grew up in Bahrain and southern Spain. Possessing an incurable wanderlust, she travelled the globe for years before settling back in the UK to complete a degree in Earth and Planetary Sciences and PhD in Astrobiology.

Growing up on a diet of science fiction and fantasy, Rebecca scribbled down stories and ideas for years but only after moving to New Zealand, for a change of lifestyle, was she able to get her teeth into writing.

Rebecca published her first book, "The Wolves of Solomon," in 2010, an historical fantasy novel based on the fall of the Knights Templar. The sequel "Wolf" followed in 2011. Driven by her characters, she is currently working on a prequel in the series, "Blood and Brethren."

In 2012, Rebecca teamed up with award winning artist Rachael Errington and they created a children's book publishing company, Cobble Creep. Their first series of children's books, "The Adventures of Count Grumpula," is based on the exploits of a sentimental, vegetarian vampire and his misfit friends. The series is currently comprised of two books and the third is due out early next year.

I loved this book-even though I'm normally reading spy and lawyer stories. Why? Well written, great characters and a unique premise that holds up a wonderful fantasy world.
I'm always so impressed when an author can create a new reality that is both intriguing and interesting. This was a page turner I couldn't put down. Now- off to read the next one. Wolf (Wolves of Solomon Book Two)

Well, what a story. I loved reading it - a real page turner! As a bit of a medievalist myself, I loved this side of the book. The author has done a great job of conveying a slightly different speech, lifestyle and time without overdoing it. I particularly liked the way the personal stories played out against, and became more and more interwoven with, the larger political background and action. As I'm more of a psychology and character girl than an action girl I enjoyed the first half the most (and in fact couldn't put it down), though that doesn't mean I didn't like the second half. I enjoyed all of it but particularly loved the character development and the tension built up in the opening chapters. A highly recommended read - and not just for history buffs!

What an awesome ride! I loved this book and found it hard to put down! The entourage of nasty characters and the blood curdling events that follow certainly kept me entertained.
Highly recommended!

First, the negatives. This novel is a diamond in the rough which could be polished into a gem with the help of an assured editorial hand. A lot of the dialogue is punctuated incorrectly, the author never met a dialogue tag that she didn't think could be `improved' with an adverb, and there is far too much filtering; she frequently tells us (over 300 times - I searched the document) that a viewpoint character `knew' this or `knew' that, when it's pretty obvious who is doing the knowing, therefore it doesn't need to be stated.

And yet, I still gave the novel four stars.

Why? Because the things she does well outweigh a few easily-remedied writerly bad habits. The central premise - The Templar Knights were really werewolves under cover - is pure speculative fiction gold. Blackhurst seamlessly weaves this premise into an historical tale of the demise of the Templar Knights at the hands of King Philip IV of France in the fourteenth century, and overlays it all with the romance between Templar Knight Galeren de Massard and Catherine, a novice nun sent to a convent in disgrace by her unforgiving father. I don't know much about the true history of the Knights Templar, but it appears that Blackhurst does; the story has a ring of authenticity about it, and the political plotline is exquisitely depicted. The characterisation is strong and the protagonists are heroic, yet just flawed enough to be sympathetic. You'll often hear a novel described as having something for everyone, and in this case, it's close to true. It's a genre melange of historical novel, horror and paranormal romance which should appeal to lovers of all three genres.
