Book Description

One of the Best Science Fiction Books You Will Read This Year...
Wolf Dawn is fun! There's genocide, love, gender-bending, spaceship chases, alien planets, wild animals, mind-control, a sexy priestess, a heroic policeman wrongly accused, and a villain who believes that the only way to understand people is through pain. If you're like me, you will have trouble putting it down" - J. Michael Riley

In the marvelous tradition of Marion Zimmer Bradley, here is an exciting space adventure epic, with the heart of Orson Scott Card's ENDER series, the soul of Frank Herbert's DUNE -- and yet, much more that is startling and controversial."
Dave Bischoff, Hotspur Publishing


Ashton Chayton is the last of his race, and he wants revenge.

Stranded on a backwater planet, his survival depends on the Red Wolves of Opan. Despite his ability to enter the minds and bodies of both people and animals, Ashton has been through the torments of hell and is ready to even the score.

Unfortunately, his enemies want him too. Admiral Neopol Jones will torture him to unlock the secret of his power. The Ferals would enslave him. The influential Lord Andros just wants him dead.

Ashton must fight impossible odds, but he has allies -- the woman he loves, his wolf family, and a man who Ashton thinks he hates. Ashton only wants two things--revenge and the Lady Lindha. But Ashton's greatest enemy may just be himself.

From the Author

Hi Everyone,

Sign up to be advised of my latest book release or feel free to write at susancartwright.com.

As Virginia Wolf says, "Writing is like sex, first you do it for love, then you do it for your friends and then you do it for money." Just now I am writing because I love it.

You know how much fun it is reading a book? Well writing one is much more fun. You get to kill characters off, make them suffer or fall in love, half the time I have no idea what will happen next...

"Wolf Dawn" and "Wolf Revenge" are the first two of the Forsaken Worlds series. "Wolf Triumph" is  the last of the trilogy and will be out soon.

Thanks for reading,

Susan

5.0 out of 5 stars A Thought-Provoking Adventure March 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wolf Dawn by Sue Cartwright is an excellent example of why I like to read, particularly in the Science Fiction / Fantasy genre.

Wolf Dawn is pure escapism, and yet ... I soon found myself caring about Ash, the protagonist. I was drawn into "deep thoughts" about his coming-of-age, which is tough enough for anyone, but excruciating for a scrawny princeling with ESP, thrust alone into space as not only an orphan, but the sole survivor of genocide.

Sure, it is a space-faring adventure story, but it is also an exploration of the consequences of shifts in our assumptions about our world and our psyche.

The title comes from the fact that, after the ship he and his mother used to escape the genocide on his home planet crashes on an alien world, Ash is raised by wolves. Of all the improbable premises that have been used as the basis for Sci-Fi books, you would think having the hero of the story raised by wolves would be outlandish and totally improbable, except for the fact that it has actually happened many times in human history.

How does a young prince turn out who is pampered for half his life in a royal palace among a people for whom mind-reading is normal, then during his adolescence raised in the harsh physical environment of a hunting wolf pack?

What is sex education for an adolescent who can read minds and lives with wolves? What are the politics and morality of a mind-reading race? Is true love enhanced or betrayed? What do you see when you peer into the mind of your mother? An animal? An animal who is your mother?

What happens to physical attraction and romantic love in a world where everyone's body can be re-sculpted to perfection? What if you're one of the unfortunate few for whom such perfection is impossible?

3.0 out of 5 stars Wolves and science fiction, how does that work? May 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Overall, not a bad beginning for a series.

I especially liked the way the author incorporated the wolf element of the title into the storyline and how this element wrought such a change in the protagonist.

I did have some plausibility problems with the author's use of technology to drive the plot in the first quarter of the book, but the rest of the story made up for those problems, in my opinion.

There is also a little more 'romance' in this story than I normally like in my fiction, but it is appropriate to the story, and the author has done it tastefully.

I would recommend this story to speculative fiction readers who are more interested in character interaction than high science.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exiting book January 4, 2012
By Ka
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got into Wolf Dawn, because I could relate to the hero's mind powers. It flowed so well I couldn't put it down. It was different because the hero starts as a child, rather than as an adult. Some parts shocked me - but that didn't put me off reading it. The wolves were cool. I liked the bond the hero had with the wolf mother, and like the idea of being raised by wolves. The Temple Sect being all women was interesting - the fact they don't rely on males at all. There was more than one main character that I became involved with. I plan to read it again. It's the kind of book you want to read more than once as you will get more out of it the second time. The author is an excellent storyteller, the plot was complex enough to keep me interested and guessing without giving me a headache - but simple enough to follow without being boring. A good read!

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST read! January 29, 2012
By Beck B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really loved this book and plan to read it again. It's a story that starts when the hero is a child, so at first I thought it was kind of a young adult read - but by chapter four it had adult themes. The story was engrossing. I LOVED the wolves. It was a little bit of a romance, but mainly an adventure. I seriously couldn't put this book down - I missed my train stop more than once because I was so engrossed. Knowing there is another part coming but not actually having it in my possession is driving me crazy! I must know what happens next!! Very well written and I very much hope to see more from Susan in the not too distant future! Don't just go by my review, read this and review it yourself! Tell everyone how good it is!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book blew me away! August 16, 2012

Wolf Dawn by Susan Cartwright

This book is the coming of age story of Ashton Chayton, aka The Trueborn of Delian - the One as named in the prophecy, but make no mistake, he is far from being another Harry Potter and there isn't a Hogwarts in sight. Instead Susan Cartwright has given us, in her unique straightforward and highly readable style, a future raw and true where political correctness has been rendered powerless by the forces of nature. Ash lives in a time when global governments have yielded to interplanetary government. It is a time when there is peace and some measure of prosperity safeguarded by the United Freeworld Government. The UFG rules by means of the absolute power of its military fleet. As if to prove the validity of the primordial law of nature concerning absolutes, within that absolute power are those who are absolutely corrupted nearly to the status of pure evil. Since the beginning of time mankind has fought to control if not eliminate evil but, like cockroaches, it just doesn't go away. Could Ash, or someone like him, be humanities new weapon in the fight? Can his love for Lindha, a prefect of the Sisters of Jana, give him the direction and impetus he needs? I can't wait for the story to continue to find out.
Through excellent characterization, dialog, description, narrative and a fairly simple yet fast moving story line Ash's world is made not merely believable but recognizable. It is so recognizable and natural that, like in real life, the outcome of the battle is not assured by either side. I highly recommend Wolf Dawn to all adult lovers of science fiction, fantasy, politics, philosophy and those who just enjoy a good story.
