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.'

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.

An Original take on Templers. Really great plot. Unusual werewolf powers. Edge of the seat drama. I love novels that have an original thought, not one, that is a knock off of a best seller. This one has it all, suspense, corruption, supernatural, and promise. Thank the Lord, not 100 wasted pages of heaving breasts and throbbing members, there is erotic, but it's not 20 pages of slop that really is it part of the plot or bathroom material?!? So well written, intelligent enough I didn't feel the author dumb it down for 6th graders. Original thought, fast moving. He knows religious background, enough for a Catholic girl, to be impressed. And he added Werewolves AND Templers, who would have thunk it? It was a great adventurous story that kept me glued and of course wanting so much more. It was one of those stories you wanted to continue on forever.

The vast majority of the books you can get for free are just horrible but this one is ok. It has a very interesting premise but it isn't executed very well. The biggest problem with this book is both the main bad guy and main good guy are idiots. The bad guy has multiple occasions to kill the good guy but he pulls the classic bond villain mistake each time and I think even tells the good guy his plans if I remember right :). The good guy isn't much better. He knows the bad guy is desperate to capture his mate yet allows her to put herself in position to get captured multiple times. If you are desperate for something to read give it a try. Its free and you might like it more than I did.

I generally shy away from werewolf books but this one was very well written and got my attention as it is associated with the Templars. It grabbed my attention from page one and did not disappoint for the entire book. Characters are well developed and believable. Lots of action, romance and medieval drama.

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)

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.
