He was given the wolf-magic to save his neighbors; now it drives him to kill them.
“LIBAHUNT!” Alexei breaks the terms of the wolf-magic he inherited from his grandfather and loses the ability to control the shapeshifting. His grandfather’s magical wolf-pelt was meant to protect their rural village in 1880s Estonia by fighting the terrible storms in the sky but instead, it drives Alexei to kill, slaughtering his neighbors, his friends —even his family.
Heartbroken, Alexei flees his home in search of an enchanter to free him from this hideous curse. Wandering through Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Bohemia, he encounters the Master of Wolves, who forces Alexei to terrorize and murder the local farmers, and the infamous Frau Bertha who traps all those who anger her by turning them into wolves. Will Alexei find a sorceror who can free him?

Fascinating - I just preordered this book - can't wait to read and review - Stephen...I believe we may have similar interests. I'd like to get in touch virtually and learn more about interdisciplinary society. I'm a Ph.D. in psychology and spirituality, therapist and writer, . Let me know if you might be willing to exchange emails. Again, looking forward to the read!

Sounds fascinating. Looks like I'll be traveling the globe in this book. Visiting places I'll never really be able to go to.
