More About the Author

MD Lachlan is a pen name - created after Mark Barrowcliffe, author of works such as Girlfriend 44 and Lucky Dog, felt himself irresistibly drawn back to fantasy after writing his Dungeons and Dragons memoir The Elfish Gene.

Wolfsangel might surprise readers of Mark's other work. He's always been noted for his comic writing ('Wickedly funny' - New York Post, 'Painfully funny' - The Bookseller) but Wolfsangel marks a sharp departure of content and style.

The book is a historical fantasy/horror hybrid that reflects Mark's childhood reading on the occult and witchcraft. 'If it makes you laugh, I've done something wrong' says Mark.

The MD in MD Lachlan stands for Mark Daniel - Mark's real name. He went with initials instead of a name because, as so often in his life, he didn't really think things through. Now he attends publishing events where people don't know what to call him. He wishes he'd gone with Mark Lachlan but it's too late now.

The comic Steve Martin was once told by Johnny Carson 'You will use everything you know'. Wolfsangel, for Mark, bears that out.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 July 2011
Format: Paperback
Fenrir is an epic second novel in the Wolfsangel series and whilst most authors pick up from where the original left off, MD keeps on going and picks the series up a hundred years later. Which isn't a bad thing as it allows a larger look at the events that happened before and how they affected this current future in this Fantasy cross Historical Fiction title. Add to this a wonderful sense and pace of a thriller and the reader really has a special treat in store.

All in the prose is excellent, the pace fast and above all else it's a story of love, of fate and of adventure. It's well written, the characters are outstanding and when blended with a pretty unique authorly voice and some magical sleight of hand, this title is, for my money, even more thrilling than the original. It really will be interesting to see what MD turns up with for the next part in this series and I suspect that some of the hidden unfinished threads will leave a nasty surprise or two for the future "heroes" to discover at their peril.

Format: Paperback
Fenrir is a fantastic journey. The beginning is humble enough (or as humble as a city under siege can be) and introduces each of the characters. As the book goes along we learn more about them, and the more we learn, the more we realise how large of a part they are to play. Those who have read the previous book, Wolfsangel, will find themselves trying to find links between the books, characters who remind them of people in the first book.

One thing that truly sets this book apart from other fantasy books is the imagery, and the skill with which MD Lachlan weaves it. With a simple sentence, a full image appears in your mind, landscapes form in the blink of an eye and characters become well-defined. No re-description is necessary as the images remain locked in your mind throughout the whole book. Any changes are made with a few choice words.

Praise of Fenrir wouldn't be complete without mentioning the storyline. You will be hooked from beginning to end, no two ways about it. There is a large reluctance to put the book down as each passage tempts you into reading on, finding out what happens next. The many characters get their own interpretation of the story from their unique angles. Their personal views on events seem to differ greatly, but each adds their own contribution to the flow of the story. It isn't long before you learn the personality of each character in turn, but each have their own surprises beyond what is laid before you.

I will finish by saying that Fenrir is a unique read and stands out from the other fantasy books out there. A brutal, exciting and fast-paced tale of love, excitement and adventure, all told with an amazing feel of realism. Each event forms so easily and fluidly in your mind that it sometimes feels like a memory of something you already know. This epic tale deserves to be read, as does the predecessor, Wolfsangel.

Format: Paperback
I might never have chosen this book to read if it hadn't been for FantasyCon. Me and a couple of friends are going and we decided that we'd try to read one story of each of the authors attending (we failed btw). That's how I chose Fenrir from M.D. Lachlan and I was happily surprised. For me it's the best book I've read so far this year.

It starts off introducing the characters in a city (Paris) under siege and you're immediately in the middle of the story being sucked in further every page. The action get's underway quickly and the pace is fast, characters split up have their own little adventures and come together and though usually this tends to make me lose my way and forget who's who, it doesn't in this story. Characters are believable and the historic background is never dull or mundane.

The writing is superb and you can tell there's been a lot of research done to get the details right. I loved the attention to detail like the names of pieces of clothing I'd never heard of (I will admit to not being a native English speaker so that could just be me) but it was always clear what was meant. It's amazing to me how M.D. Lachlan get's into each characters head, sees their background and where they come from and let's them speak, think and act how I expect they would.

If you're looking for an action packed adventure that makes you want to read more (and luckily there is more) then this is definitely the book to read. I haven't read the first book 'Wolfsangel' and I had no trouble following this book. It can be read on its own and you come away with a complete story. I will definitely be looking for more books by M.D. Lachlan.

After reading the excellent Wolfsangel i was more than excited (to say the least) to read this book. Ok, some may argue that it is like Groundhog Day in Norse, but that is whole myth. It reoccurs throughout the ages, and boy it gets better and better!
Compared to Wolfsangel this book visits some very dark places and the introduction of Christianity into the main plotline is very well done.
The author has the knack of drawing you into a world of Norse legend (which i had no interest in beforehand...)and then leaving you wanting more.
Roll on the next book, i am waiting with bated wolf breath.

Format: Paperback
The second novel in the series of books contains a lot of references to the original but carries on a considerable time later.

I enjoyed the first book as it was a great idea, it grew in complexity and the characters were well written. The second book is fantastic with better characters and (maybe because I had a better idea where it might go) the plot seemed much stronger (which isn't to take anything away from the original by the way).

If you like dark fantasy, and it is dark mind, then give this a go.
