Publisher's Summary

It has been generations since the Northlands have seen a hero worthy of the title. Many have made the claim, but few have lived to defend it. Timid, weak, and bullied, Wulfric is as unlikely a candidate as there could be.
A chance encounter with an ancient and mysterious object awakens a latent gift, and Wulfric's life changes course. Against a backdrop of war, tragedy, and an enemy whose hatred for him knows no bounds, Wulfric will be forged from a young boy into the Wolf of the North. This is his tale.

Great opening to a series

Would you consider the audio edition of The Wolf of the North, Book 1 to be better than the print version?

The print version was good but it is always better to listen so you can get subtle nuances that you can miss when reading the print version. I love print but an really learning to love unabridged audio versions lately.


What other book might you compare The Wolf of the North, Book 1 to and why?

I am just getting into this genre and this 1st book rivals Bernard Cornwell's The Last Kingdom. I have listened to the entire series and it was a great series so Mr. Hamilton is off to a great start.


Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I listened to The Millennium Series (Lisbeth Salander) by Stieg Larsson, V for Vendetta by Alan Moore, and Daniel Silva's Portrait of a Spy all of which he was great in.


Any additional comments?

Only comment I would make is I beg please, PLEASE don't make the same mistake so many audible authors make and change the narrator. Simon Vance is a phenomenal narrator and now he is the voice of the series. I know it may seem a small thing but it throws the listener, or at least it does me, off when a different narrator is reading the story.

Classic epic tale

I felt like I was part of the crowd around the fire listening as the storyteller enthralls his audience with a tale of a young lad who'll become a great warrior and all the people who will help or harm him along the way. Simon Vance is perfect as the storyteller and all the characters he portrays - I loved his rendition of everyone from the world-weary speaker (who knows how to spin a yarn) to Wolfric who is figuring out his place in the world. Have already recommended this to friends who love epic fantasy.
