Book Description

An early morning fitness run should be uneventful but not for David Ash. Before he knows it he has a megalomaniacal CEO, vengeful Fairies and a murderous piece of sentient software all on his case. Not to mention one big and seriously hungry Wolf.

Caught between old foes and new ones Ash needs to find what has caused this toxic mixture to spill over into murder and mayhem and he needs to do so soon. His boss is out for the count, his friends are being misled and he has some extremely dubious allies, one of whom may cost him more than would his enemies. Temptation, legend, myth and fate all come together in The Digital Wolf, the explosive second novel of The Hidden Academy series.

    More About the Author

    Born in London, too late to be a flower child but too early to take Gordon Gecko as a inspiration, I stumbled across three continents without ever discerning a guiding philosophy. As a child my parents seemed to think that anywhere that was synonymous with backwater, inbred, hill-billy jokes sounded just about right, so as a family we discovered the wild splendours of West Virginia, the Llyn Peninsula and the far north of the Scottish Highlands. Even though a succession of teachers had suggested that I was not particularly academically inclined (and some considered me not merely profoundly dyslexic but a visible drag to the potential of the whole human race) I studied Electrical Engineering, English Literature and American Studies, Shakespeare Studies and Law, in locales diverse as Edinburgh, Hull, Stratford and Singapore.

    In a final attempt to escape any form of actual work I took up writing. Only to discover that it was far more demanding than any job I'd ever had and more addictive than morphine. Clumsy, to the point of tripping over single blades of grass, I took up Tai Chi in an effort to discover outer balance and it worked, these days there need to be at least three blades within a square inch before I land face first in the dirt.

    I live in a tiny village somewhere in Shropshire, usually with one or more insane cats. All of whom considered my writing as a treasonous waste of time that should, by all rights, be spent seeing to their needs. I've long since been obsessed by narrative forms, be it novels, films, plays, or, for that matter, comic books. So, despite the incessant nagging of the cats, I'm happiest sat at my computer banging out sentences, considering character and plot details and discovering what happens next. I'm the author of the Hidden Academy series which so far comprises the four novels: The Unicorn Crisis; The Digital Wolf; Pantheon of the Dead and When in Rome. I hope to keep adding to this list at regular intervals. Currently I'm working on a fifth book in the series with the working title: The Crystal Golem which has Ash caught between the warring factions of the Dwarves and the Selkies, who live underground, or under the sea surrounding Orkney. Their feud has been going on for a very long time.

    The idea for the first novel (Unicorn) came to me as a joke, a joke which became a skit and then a short story. By the time I had written the novel I found that the joke no longer suited the book which Unicorn had become. I hope one day to finish the original joke as a short story set in the world of The Hidden Academy. It's likely that I'll find the room within the overall narrative structure as The Hidden Academy, as a project is likely to be extended to ten novels.

    4.0 out of 5 stars The Digital Wolf 3 Nov. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    The second book is even better than the first. David Ash (custodian to Stratford and surrounding areas) is out jogging when he is attacked by a wolf - well Fenris to be exact - and so the plot thickens to include a machine and technology take over, another Norse descendant and a fight to save the world. Jon Rosenberg's Hidden Academy books are well written, creative and imaginative, packed with action, plots and strategies - a really great read. Only downside is the editting issues but they do not detract from the storyline. I'm off to start book 3.
    Read the books you will not be disappointed.

    The second Hidden Academy book doesn't disappoint. It really was a book to devour in one sitting if possible.
    David Ash has just about recovered from the injury he received at the end of the first book. Out jogging to help his return to fitness he narrowly avoids death by wolf. Huge unbelievable wolf. Fenris of Norse legend has been freed.
    Then his boss Christina Rosetti is admitted to hospital in a coma. And the lift tries to kill David too....
    I loved this.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful 1 July 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Completely delightful. This is urban fantasy, english gentleman style. I truly love the character of David Ash, so genteel and yet so real and gritty, I love these books and look forward to more. The world is utterly believable, more so by the fact that English life is depicted beautifully. That's what makes it so appealing, could there really be a world out there, existing alongside ours where the supernatural exists? This book has me believing that! A highly enjoyable read.

    3.0 out of 5 stars An undemanding page-turner 26 Sept. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I bought this one after quite enjoying 'Unicorn'; but, while it's still a reasonably fun read, I get the sense of the author settling into a rut rather than getting into his stride.
    It's self-published so a little roughness around the edges is to be expected, but the number of typos, mis-spellings, grammatical errors and comma abuse is so rampant as to be a significant annoyance. I don't expect professional editing standards, but please, Mr Rosenberg, at least read your manuscript through before you publish.
    The supporting cast from the previous book are all back, but there isn't really any character development. It's all a bit 'crash, bang'. This is a shame, because there's some nice ideas in there. I liked the idea of the Svartalfar as uber-tech-nerds. Sam the new apprentice could be an interesting character, but she doesn't seem to have much to do except exclaim "yes boss!" at regular intervals. And Llewellyn the earthbound elf just descends into caricature. Boyo.
    In summation: a disappointing follow-up, with some good ideas rather sloppily executed. However, if all you want is an undemanding holiday read, then it's ok sunlounger material.

    You are going to want to know what happens next, so stopping half way through this book is not an option- I did try. Why? Those of you who are familiar with the 'Big Bang Theory' TV programme will know that nerdish people will happily suspend disbelief for all manner of implausible concepts (as long as they have internal logic); but we get very cross when something that is key to the plot line is just factually and scientifically incorrect. In this case it is that water from the bottom of the ocean is massively compressed so that if 'summoned' to a place with everyday pressure it will expand to hundreds of times its volume. Not the case of course- liquids barely compress at all (although to be fair dissolved gases in the water may well froth it up a bit!) If you have a science background try to set this on one side- the book is good.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great new series 10 Sept. 2012
    By teemac
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Really enjoyed this. Nice wrting style and good characterisation. 1star subtracted for the typos so often mentioned here, but also for the pointless and very annoying Americanisms, such as reckless endangerment. In spite of this, still a great new discovery.

    The second in the series and as good as the first. Please read them in sequence.
    If you like Mike Carey, Jim Butcher or Kim Harrison you will enjoy this.
    Thank you Mr Rosenberg.

    Well up to the standard of the first book, continuing the attractive, well delineated characters, believable motivations, and apt and witty allusions to various mythologies. Great fun
