Fear the reckoning of those you have wronged.
Notorious Hunter King Jake Barrett lives his life according to a warrior's creed. His forces are hard-pressed, outnumbered, and outgunned. Malevolent gods threaten his six-year-old son. In desperation, he extends his hand to his ancient friend and foe for help.
Valkyrie Victoria Storm follows the path Odin laid out, but each step carries the priestess farther from Freya's favor. She works to unify the werewolf tribes and forge an alliance with the hunters. Trouble brews on the home front. The dominant males in her pack are at each other's throats. A killer in her territory is skinning wolves; the evidence points to one of Odin's worshipers.
Loki hides among mortal men, a shadow of his greater glory. Under the command of the Necromancer, the Trickster's undead army grows ever more powerful. He counts the days until he collects on what he is owed, but he harbors more regret than satisfaction. His wolf children speak his name with derision. Those he seeks to help recoil from him. Justice for the God of Lies means the end of all life. Loki's warnings fall on deaf ears but he knows—
Fate shelters the ember that will spark the fire. Reckoning for the day when the world burns.

An extraordinary adventure!
Wolf's Cross is a vivid and complex tapestry skillfully woven by Melissa Snark. At first, everything seems in flux in this story. It is difficult to determine who is truly your friend and ally and who is the enemy. The Nordic gods may seem fickle, but we know little of their plans for the mortal realm. They present a conundrum! Bit by bit, the patterns are revealed. It's best to delve right in and follow the ribbons of story where they lead you. I assure you it is an extraordinary adventure! Many great passages come to mind, but my very favorite is the last scene in the book. Do read it! I received an author's copy in exchange for an honest review.
