Decadent Rome at the dawn of the Dark Ages is mired in crumbling grandeur.
Now, into the Eternal City comes Regeane, a beautiful young woman distantly
related, through her dead mother, to Charlemagne. Regeane's regal blood
renders her an unwilling pawn in the struggle for political power. But
unknown to those plotting against her, the blood she has inherited from her
murdered father makes her much more than a child of royalty. Possessed of
preternatural agility and strength, primal memories extending back
thousands of years, and senses so keen they can pierce the veil of death
itself, Regeane is a shapeshifter: woman and wolf, hunter and hunted.
"In this hypnotic novel, the decadence and splendor of ancient Rome comes vividly to life through a character as enigmatic as my very own Lestat....Peopled with characters that beckon to the deepest reaches of our souls, The Silver Wolf is a stunning initiation into a dark and dazzling realm."
