Violence and death come to the land under the Northern Sky when two fierce races break their age-old fragile peace and start an all-out war in this thrilling and savagely visceral epic fantasy. Beyond the Black River, among the forests and mountains of the north, lives an ancient race of people. Their lives are measured in centuries, not decades; they revel in wilderness and resilience, and they scorn wealth and comfort. By contrast, those in the south live in the moment, their lives more fleeting. They crave wealth and power; their ambition is limitless, and their cunning unmatched. When the armies of the south flood across the Black river, the fragile peace between the two races is shattered. On a lightning-struck battlefield, the two sides will fight - for their people, for their land, for their very survival. Under the Northern SkyThe Wolf.

It is a good start to what will hopefully be a long series. The political intrigue and the battle of who the real enamy is just makes the story fly by. It has the potential of being the next Game of Thrones. I like the old western style of a few against a mass of others. Luckly book two (The Spider) is already published.

Grimdark medieval military fiction with the lightest touch of extremely subtle (but definitely there) magic. Leo Carew's alternate world is one of the most interesting fantasy settings I've ever read. A middle ages British Isles where the far north and west are heavily forested and populated by far more dangerous versions of Pleistocene animals. Regions where at least 2 other surviving hominid species have endured and thrived. These alternate humans wage a perpetual war with their "saxon" southern neighbors. I would also be remiss in this review if I didn't mention the coolness of the protagonist's city in the story in the form of a honeycomb tower fort. A literal "honeycomb hideout". Overall, I really enjoyed this read and look forward to reading the next chapter, 'The Spider'.

If you like fantasy series such as Game of Thrones, you should love this one. First of a new trilogy, this author knows how to write this genre, and I found myself looking forward to the next installment as this one drew to a close. Can't wait.
